Or you can write me an e-mail and I'll send you some photos and videos from both phones.

N73- video call (very good); photo (ok, but like a vga)
6500s- video call (very good); photo (not available, at least I didn't yet find a way to do it)
back camera - photo:
N73- excellent for a 3.2, but I never updated my phone to a 4.XX firmware version, so I don't have the 'blue tint' some say appeared with the 4.xx firmware.
6500s- excellent for a 3.2 outdoors, but only 'regular' inside (doesn't get grainy or anything, just lacks a xenon flash instead of the led one, imho).
back camera - video:
N73- videos are in high-quality mpeg4 format (which I prefer), but uses a low resolution of 352 x 288.
6500s- videos are saved as 3gp, at a maximum resolution of 640x480. The result is very good outdoors.
The thing that I don't like about the camera of the 6500s is that it doesn't have a cover like the N73. But it's not all bad: the battery cover protects the actual lens with a plastic piece. So, if it gets scratched, you can get a new battery cover and all is fine again.
Just remember that a mobile phone can't be compared to a new generation digital camera ;)
I'd say that, if you like the S40 phones, get the 6500s.
But buy from a known, serious seller, so you can take it back in the first weeks and get a new one if you have any problems. I've heard that some come out faulty. Mine is OK for now, but I still have a week left to test it. If it has any problem at all, they'll give me a new one right away. After two weeks, if there is a problem they'll send it to Nokia Care.
If you have any more questions, just ask :)
Pls i just discovered that nokia 6500 i just bought one month ago has screen problem. that is to say the screen of my phone is blank and the battery no long last for four hours. Can pls advise me what to do. email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks
