i know this may seem like a stupid question but the answer is make or break for me. How customizable is this phone? Can i change the background on the stand-by screen and the screensaver? please let me know. thanks.
Whats on about this phone is that it only has a little bigger screen than the N80. BUT the resolution on the screen is almost about half of the N80's so it is not so crystal clear as the N80. That makes the pixels to be big and seen with the bare eye !
A Sony Ericsson look-a-like - it's UGLY !
WHY does it have Carl Zeiss Optics when you
can't even see the difference in the pics ???
N80 is the BEST phone on the market
including the best camera (without even
having to have 'Carl Zeiss') (and even BETTER than the SE w800i which gives the best quality photos on the market - upto now) and the highest
quality screen. 100% VOTE for the King of ALL mobiles !!!
Hiya. Anyone know how to have full screen wallpapers, change the screensaver or have the voice recorder work for more than 1min?? I have a 6280 as well and it is odd the series 40 phone seems to work better in these departments.
hi yoyo, got to remind you that there's quite a lot of differences between N73 & N80, such as N73's lens is Carl Zeiss but N80 is not. Plus the size of N80 is bigger than N73. I don't think you would like to put N80 into the front pocket of your pants unless you want to show the others that you got an extra piece of equipments between your legs there.
you are crazy if you think that N73 is better than N80.It is more than obvious that N80 has better screen resolution than N73,and except for autofocus everything else is the same!Not to mention cheap look of N73,especially its joypad.N80 is still the king,you can say whatever you want,but that is the fact... :)
i've had a N73 for a week. Everything is just perfect. It comes with 128Mb memory card but i don't need it bcause i'll upgrade to 1 or 2 GB.
The reception and the call quality is good, just like other modern Nokia phones. The camera is so fantastic (at least same quality with the Cybershoot phone K800i). The music is great also, but i recommend u to have a adapter for the 3,5mm headphone, it would be perfect. Anyway, the headphone included is also a good one. The sound through the sterio speaker phone is very good, clear and loud (But still not as good as in the Nokia 6233). The battery is much better than in the N80, I can use it for 3 days (heavily used)
As a matter of taste, i like it much better than the K800i which i also use sometimes. The fact is the N73 has everything that the K800i offers plus the Symbian 9.0, better sterio speaker phone, better screen, much better video recording (k800i sucks in this area). That's why it's just much more interesting than K800i. K800i is also a very good function phone, however i can say that the N73 is the best mobile so far.
Recommend to everyone!
is the call quality good? like reception, other person on the line?
I juz got N73 ystday, everything is fine and juz want to tell u all about the 2 things I found which are differ from what're mentioned in article "N73 Review": There's a 128mb memory card included in the package and the memory card slot is NOT illuminated.
Btw, it's better than SE:)
from the comment below, so you've changed nokia phones 4 times in a few months... hmmmm... so much for being satisfied with one phone...
Well people I dont think you can ever compare a nokia to a sony ericsson. The only good phone offered by SE is the P900 series which includes the P990i. The camera on the N73 is as good as the one on the SE. The sound is as good if not better with the stereo speakers. This phone is an absolute killer. I have owned many phones. I am the kind of person who chenges phones every month or every alternate month. I have owned the N91, N80, N70, 8800, O2 Mini S, SE w800i, Moto Razr V3. All of this in the first 8 months of this year. I have to say that my favorite phone is the N73. And no Im not saying it cuz its new but because it truly is an amazing phone. The sound quality is better than the W800i and the N91. I have three words for people contemplating between a Nokia with a symbian and any other brand, including SE. GET THE NOKIA.
N73 may inevitably be compared to the Sony Ericsson K800i due to a similar megapixel count, but i think the N73 has the edge because it is also a full-fledged smartphone that can be beefed up by installing third-party applications – something the K800i is incapable of. It's just a pity it lacks Wi-Fi connection.
Why is K800 you're choice if you want something else than a camera? This phone has more features than the K800, and it's a smartphone. This is way more feature packed than the K800 trust me. I'm going for the N93 though. You can't say any phone beats that for features.
N73 is equal good that k800i when it comes to camera. But how about the rest? If you wanna mobile that offers you something else than a camera K800i is your choice.
Maybe you missed the link posted by @2AMS, but the K800 and N73 cameras are quite much equal. An they are still far from digicam-quality.
if you want a digital camera in a phone buy k800
if you want a phone with an additional "so-so" 3.2 mp camera buy n73
