It is clear! The n73' photos are more rich beacuse they apply a very strong unsharp mask!!! I hate this method to change the reality of an image! K800 take naturale and real photo. If you apply an unsharpmask filter and pull up the saturation on k800's photos, you see the same photos as n73...Nokia uses a trick!!!
For fans of N73.What u say about holiday lamps on 1 of the pictures?? That mean that a n73 has unnatural colours
It has never been a secret that the gsmarena guys have always been biased towards Sony Ericsson... i guess they dont get to keep the phones for more than a month, otherwise they would start noticing how faulty and crappy they are (crappy joysticks, crappy bluetooth modules, the infamous white screen of death, Disc2phone sw that corrupts and leaves your phone useless... and i could keep going and going).
Since the days of the T610... one of SE's "best sellers". Dont you guys remember... the worst screen ever! hardly readable... worst reception and worst earpiece. And it was a "best seller".
I still remember the posts that flooded the W550/W600 forums : "my screen is all white and my phone is useless", "my phone froze and when i re-started it, it wouldnt turn on".. bla bla bla.
After being a very unsatisfied SE k700 user... theres just one thing I know: Avoid SE handsets... avoid them at all cost.
Picture wise: LG wins hands down, i mean its obvious just read the specs.
Quality wise: Nokia. Being a N73 user myself, ive experienced a few hangs (like 4 or 5) over two months of use. But one thing is for sure... im never afraid that whenever i remove the battery, my phone will refuse to turn on... or get a white screen of death or whatsoever.
No wonder why Nokia is still the leader in mobile phones manufacturing.
And do you guys want a "bestseller"? why dont you turn your head to v3 razr from motorola? Now that's what i call a Bestseller
i think people in gsmarena love sony eri. because nokia n73 has verry good camera and anyone can see that it takes better pics than the other two, especially from k800
Some people here seem like they don't even read the review blindfully bashing one phone and praising another one.
Each one has flaws..
Personally the yellow tint on the LG pictures made some of them really bad but in the mall it was way nicer then SE+nokia. Nokia looked nice in some photos but the oversaturation killed it in others. SE did good in some, bad in others. Because of this review I think i'll get a SE because I want the real picture and I wanna edit stuff in the future possibly. Thanks for the awesome review gsmarena guys =D
N73 is more colorful? yeah.. gsmarena already explained that N73 used over saturation process. For those who know abt photography, they will go for K800
though i hav a SE K800i.. i must say after i read this review.. N73 takes better picture dan da other two..
LG takes excellent pics with fantastic resolution. bt its color managemnt is worst.
K800i's indoor pics didnut satisfyd me..bt its flash is da king of kings! best flash evr used in camera mobile!
N73's pics are a lot colourful dan ne other of da two.
Overall i think N73 z better(only after readin this review)
NB: i think da pics in dis review taken by k800i z not good. bt da pics i took by my k800i i got a huge diffence. i think da k800i used here donut take good pics.
3. Sony ericsson
the nokia's better than the sony ericsson..big 2.4" screen,smartphone,sterio speaker and a pretty good video recorder with a good 3.2 mp camera. compared to the sony which has 2" screen only,non smartphone (meaning less games,apps,themes ect. to install),no sterio speakers, bad video recording (as bad as my 6230i)..so..sony should go die..with its failing ps3,exploding batteries and faulty camera's...
Sonyericsson gives the most accurate color renditions (mind you i'm ignoring the added resolution of LG's 5Mp)
Hands down night mode, great autofocus (close ups) , hated the blurry park Pics
LG. Could have won GOLD easy but I had to ignore some of the advantages of the added resolution. hated the inaccurate colors at times, like in the mall, the consistent seemingly dark light in pictures and the complete dardness pictures was a joke
Nokia, Seemed the sharpest of the 3, but remember its over saturating pictures, so if yellows goes yellower, black goes blacker I guess the pictures will naturally seem sharper, Basically nokia shows us something that wasn't there, looks grea yes, but its fake. factor in the consisted purple and somewhat bad night light
Do you realise that pictures taken by Nokia are Simply oversaturated? Sure its Look "better" but whats more important is the reality. The fact That the pictures made by nokia are just too off from reality. Its like Saying Fight Night Round 3 on Xbox 360 Looks better than Boxing on ESPN, sure it does but you just can't say that fake > reality.
GSMARENA being picky to Nokia for some reason. I mean, it's obvious N73 makes better pics, why make up rediculous excuses for Sony Ericsson?
In the end its all about being satisfied with your phone and having tested for a while both phones... i stick to the N73 just because i like the pics more... Real color or not... who cares??? i just like the pics better
can't you see at the crops that nokia is the best when it comes to sharpness? k800 photos are blurry, not good.
nokia n73 is than better of k800 i hope tocome nokia n95 is the best phone in the world sony ericsson k800 havent a good video and it is good only on camera perhaps nokia n97 with 5mp camera coming in this year yet nokia n93i is the best phone in the world
i think n73 and k800 r quite the same .. but for me .. i will choose K800 as it shows the true colors more than n73 ..
