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!
A lot of sample pictures taken by N73.
Nokias put in its manual the wrong way to open the memory card slot,they say an show flick from the right hand side were a little memory card is marked but it did not work,i tried the left hand side an it work o.k getting to get the slider open to fit the card,so watch out or you might break it.HOPE THIS HELPS EVERYONE Cheers
The GSMArena team has full time to devote for a review of an ugly phone like Sony Ericsson P990 review but they dont have enough time to put a review on the best smartphone i.e nokia n73. How frustrating!!! Isnt?????
good phone, but can't work out how to store photos and contacts etc to the memory card, any help appreciated
