seeing that cost and size/wt are no problem to u, i would like to give u totally other idea than ur list....
look at Sony Ericsson P990i. feature wise its the phone to be, with touch screen, qwerty key pad and any other feature that u know that can exist on a cell phone. only hitch is 2mp cam, but then its Sony ericsson. its 2 mp cam would be equivalent to nokia's 3.2 mp.
for my the cost has made me to scale my selection to N73 (my 2nd option)
I think N73 is better than N91 besides quality music via headset(?).And N73 has double speaker so for listening without headset it is the best.
Camera K800 (quality and ability) is a little better than N73; and is not smartphone which relatively faster than smartphone.
Just to open your choice,how is about W900i.I think it has the best video ability than any other SE phones (640x480,30 fps with chip Nvidia),also have one of the best 2 Mpx camera, goed music via headset and also not smartphone.
It's better that you read what the user said in the forum (it's need time), but you can choose the best for you if you know more especially from the user.
In your shoes, I would choos the N73 or N91. The N91 has got the best music and memory capabilities. The N73 has got speakers, screen and camera better. You choose. The N80 is mostly for business, the N93 has got great cam/video but it´s quite big and the K800 is just a toy.
About wallpapers. Isn´t it impossible to set fullscreen wallpapers in all Symbians?
I purchased my N73 this past weekend and I have to say it outshines the SE K800i. Although pics look a little grainy when viewing them on the device the quality of the pics when you download and view them on your PC is awesome! My only gripe is the wallpapers...perhaps it is me being silly but as far as I can see the N73 does not allow you to make images full screen wallpapers?? Anybody have and further info on this?
to all of you that say the memorycard slot is difficult to open: hold the phone with the back facing you, if you look at the slot just above the pop-port you'll see a little "crack". just put your fingernail in an pull straight up... not difficult at all... :)
I"ve had the k800i an now the N73 an i can easily say the N73 is the best one to get,the k800i design seems like the K750i buttons at the bottom with an extended screen added to it,o.k people will nag about the button sizes on the N73 but afer a bit you can easily get used to use them,the sound from the N73 is the better easily so i am really glad i waited for the N73 an this mobile to me is the best one out at the moment,well done Nokia
I think there is price wars between a few dealers advertised selling at ebay...
Frequently, u can see the price of the most popoular phones like k800, N73, etc keeps going down from $10 to... but the price are sometimes are really cheap comparing to the telco operators.. so it's better to pay a bit more buying a phone without contract...
The screen of N73 is big so u can view very nice photos. It has built in with bluetooth as well as infrared...
Camera quality is superb with bright lighting or day time...
Video recording better than N80 but lost to N70, so far the best video is 6280 VGA std (excludes N93) haven't out yet...
K800 have a real photographic flash so nite time anywhere no problem but video lousy...
Nokia should have comes out with the real photographic flash by now but still...
The sound quality of N73 is much better than n80 & n70 (stereo speakers top & below of the phone).
Puzzled me is that before taking picture, the screen has a cloud of whitish background and after taking pictures seems disappeared.
As for the bottom of the phone, the memory card slot are not very difficult to open but need to open at the center beside the connecter pin instead of sideway (hard to open).
So far, the best 3.2mega camera phone on the market is Nokia N73 & SE K800 as for samsung D900 (not tried yet as the price still very high and comparable to N73 & K800 but not worth it as ihe package does not comes with memory card and TV output cable).
My rating for N73 (80%) & K800 (78%).
About the wallpaper being put onto full screen, even those with 240x320 resolution can't put on full screen as wallpaper???? or do u guys mean u can't view the wallpapers imn the gallery in full screen??/ thx for ur responses... help would b much appreciated...have a good day..
Ok I think from the comparison in http://www.mobilmania.cz/Mobilnitelefony/AR.asp?ARI=113183 we can see clearly N73 is better than K800. Now I want to know which is better or is it same quality of still photo of N93 and N73? I'm going to buy either one.
It's already available in KSA Axiom stores. The price is SR2,599 including 1GB memory. I still need to wait for a couple of weeks or so to buy (not so sure as I owned N80 just less than 2 months ago)to make the price down. I don't know the camera and video quality of N73 because honestly, I am not quite happy with the video recording of N80. N80 digital camera seems okay but still video recording is really below par.
N73 takes very good pictures during daytime and good lighting environment but not in the night time or indoor with low lighting as the flash is useless.
For indoor or nite time, much more inferior picture quality even with the night mode, I'm puzzled with the carl zesis len, maybe lower grade carl zesis len been used.
The keypad is horrible, compose sms takes longer than other nokia models and words are so small display. Wallpaper cannot display full on the screen.
The casing feel flimsy compared to N70 (feel solid). The memory card slot right below the phone and so difficult to remove (funny, no place for the slot?)
I bought it for S$838 whe it launched and sold ot for S$750 after 3 days. Now bought a new 7megapixels camera S$500 and very happy with the camera...
Finally, w website doing a comparison among n73, D900 and k800. GSMArena, dont bother. C U.
Well, look at that... Seems like Nokia has finally found the way. The N73 actually takes the best pics...
Comparison among photos taken by N73, K800 and D900:
N73 the best!
