Still undecided as to get one of these. It has to be the best all round handset at the moment and I don't see anything to rival it in the near future. I have a 6280 at the moment which I am happy with, only when i got it I thought the next phone I get won't be as big.
This is the only off putting feature of this and other N series phones. Just wondering how long we'll have to wait for the N74 ?
If the samsung d900 was 3G i'd probably buy that instead !
hi i have got the n73 two days ago from hk, its very good looking and smart phone, lots of features inside.
regarding the camera effect, i cant talk much about it, as for me, its little bit slow and slightly blue background for the pics, which i should say little bit inferior to se k800, but i dont like the desidn of the camera of k800, not feeling good in hand.
else i think this phone rocks, small yet powerful, i love it.
The N80 isn´t that bad, mobile-review is in my opinion the propaganda engine of SE... :P
I bought n73 !!!! it rocks !! it`s better than n80 10 times..it`a bigger screen,lighter phone the sound it's great the camera is off the hook with carl zeiss..it deserves to be bought :D
I have had both the N80 and the N73 and in my opinion the N73 is much better. I thought the N80 was a terrible phone, the battery life is poor, the camera isn't the best, it is very slow, the slide mechanism is awful. the list does go on and if I were you I would go for the N73. I really like it and it is on the whole a very nice phone. So what if it does not have WLAN! You will probably see a lot of positive reviews for the N80 but it is very over rated. In fact mobilereview.com and check out the two reviws they have. They point out the flaws of the N80 very well.
BECAUSE YOUR GEORGOUS I DO ANYTHING FOR YOU! is the best song for My N73 its the best mobile i have used for ages an had no trouble at all with this mobile phone,just recieved a clear crystal case of Ebay to look after the screen from scratches an the full fascia its superb an would buy one if you want to look after your N73 a car charger was sent with it as well,the batteries superb an camera brilliant an really glad i got this mobile instead of the k800i.Cheers Nokia!
Yeah... it's around 31k. *sigh* I hope I can buy it by September 1st week. :((
I got the Phone for US$510 yesterday. It's so compact and quick. Best Nokia Phone ever. Need to get a carrying case, any suggestions. Thx.
i want to know which one is better n73 or n80.. can someone tell me your opinion? thanks..
Just called up Nokia Store in Glorietta. N73 is down to P30,100 in cash. (P32K+ CC). Here in Nueva Vizcaya can't find an N73 below P26K. But Really I don't mind paying P26-P30K as long as it doesn't have that annoying freezing SMS bug.. SMS is very important to me cos I use it a lot.... Anyway, I hope our fellow reiewers here in these forums are kind enough to give feedback if this bug is in the N73, specially those who had been using N73 for more than a month now. Hello, anyone????
argh... 25k only? Wowwwwwww....... *droolz* i wanna buy one! Im 21 m qc. ^__^
To chico: the 26k n73 that i found includes 1 month warranty only. I think there's an additional price if you wanted a year of warranty. *sigh* I've been waiting for this phone since April. waaaaaaa! =((
I'll apply for a bpi cc later @ g4.
I've been asking that for quite some time now, nobody answers... That is really my concern and I want to make sure there's no such SMS freezing bug before I buy N73. I've learned my lesson when I purchased N80 on the first days of its release. Keep me updated if you don't mind. Thank you.

The Nokia N73 is an excellent phone. Yes it works in the US with Cingular. Yes, it has a very good camera. Yes, there is an equalizer. I have had the phone crash on me once, but other than that, it's been fine, and I'm sure it's nothing that a firmware upgrade won't fix. If you're picky, wait it out.
Some big issues that people might have trouble with are:
- Very slow camera start up time
- No way to sort contacts by first name (the feature is available, but doesn't work) [firmware]
- It requires a restart every so often, as there is a memory leak issue [firmware]
Everything else is great, though. The case seems to be quite resilient, and it has great audio quality (music on the headphones isn't that bad, either). It's more stable in terms of network switching than my old 6600, but it does seem to have weaker signal (this is my personal opinion and may not be true.)
I would wait until there is a v.2 or a firmware upgrade available, but if you really want it, it is very much usable (and beautiful) as-is now.
Is it every N73 user experience the 'freezing bug'? Or are they just some few isolated cases?
anyone using the N73 for more than a month now?
Does the phone freeze when sending SMS????
