Got my N73 on Saturday. By Wednesday it was on it's way back to Vodafone. The camera stopped working - resetting to default settings got it working again for a while. And the phone kept spontaneously going to the image gallery as if I'd pressed the image review button. I figured that one out. If you press the phone body up to a centimetre above that button it's like pressing the button itself!
Anyway, Vodafone are sending a new one. I'm hoping that it was just that phone. When it was working the N73 was exactly what I was after in a phone. It was a little slow and stuttery in other applications. Hopefully that is just firmware issues that will be resolved soon.
Ok, I think its about time GSMArean gives us an answer whether they plan to do a review for N73 or not. We have waited long enough and we are tired of checking back every day.
has anyone used onedaymobile.com to buy this sim free,,,are they reliable trustworthy etc thank you
Nokia shipped ropey PC Suite software with this Device!!!!. Cannot connect to device all the time i get Error Code 10 in Device Manager, arghh!!
One problem with N73 and Symbian OS is that you CANNOT set photos taken as wallpaper to FULL screen, this is a limitation of Symbian. I just wish they have developed something to do this.
One way round this is to use S60 theme studio, modify an existing theme with the image you want resized to the background window,.
Got the N73 today an it looks alot better than the K800i an fits in the hand o.k an does feel really light,the cameras o.k an not much to choose between this an the K800i,the screens large an the speakers are easily heard anywhere an alot better than the K800i,the buttons are small but easily to get use to as all Nokia phones are,this is the Best Mobile Nokias made for ages as the others like the N90 or 6680 an N70 were to broad an thick,Just wish a memory card was included with this package
Hi, I just want to know, is the video recording of n73 as good as in n70? I still proud of the n70 video recording. I am now using N80 and the video is TERRible!
IMPORTANT: Potential buyers in Middle East of sony k800...U will not be able to use ur new Etisalat sim card in the k800.Etisalat came out with a new version incompatible in k800..INQUIRE before buying...thanks to Gsmarena u finally knw abt it..BUY n73 INSTEAD
Had my N73 delivered this morning. I have been following the progress of this phone for nearly two months! so i was glad to finally get my hands on it. I have a N80 aswell at the moment, although the N73 has a lower resoultion the screen is nice and big. It is a very nice phone, doesnt run that slowly, battery is MUCH better then the N80 and however the stero speakers they keep going on about doesnt seem as good as the ones on the 6233/4 and finally the camera. I was lucky also to have the K800i and to be honest the k800i has less noise in its pictures but n73 pics are still very detailed and focued and alot better then my n80. Final Verdict- 9/10
N73 does not have 3.5mm audio jack. You have to buy a 'Pop-Port' to 3.5mm audio adaptor.
I use this adapter on my N73 so that I can use my own headphones http://www.mobileplanet.com/product.asp?code=123913
Wow... I´m just starting to be convinced about getting this one... :P I promised myself always to use brick-phones after that my dear sister dropped my 6270, which resulted in the top part beeing all shaky.
Those pics are also great, they totally beat the N93 and might win over the K800 aswell. Fabulous.
i have been waiting for the review of n73. can anybody please tell me that does n73 has 3.5mm audio jack or the good ol adapter to fix any other headphones except the ones supplied with the standard package .. please let me know the price of n73 whereever it is available
This will satisfy the most demanding Nokia user who likes bar phones. Same spec and quality as N80. More robust than N80 as no moving mechanisms and size is just right. It is a normal size like 6230i and 6233. Strongly recommending it.
I bought this phone... I previosuly had N70... I dont even look at my N70 phone anymore man.... The most amazing thing about this phone is the QVGA screen so crisp and clear... I guarantee you guys when you take a look at the amazing screen you will just fall love with the phone right away!! Speakers are loudss.... but I will be honest I had k750 in the past.. but still speakers are good... Camera and video are just amazing... I would recommend to buy a 2 or 4 gb mini sd... yes they have 4 gb mini SD now... The KEYPAD is lil unconformtable than N70 but you will get used to it... THE PHONE IS NOT BIG!! BELEIVE ME... its thin and looks a lil like SLVR... The biggest drawback of this phone (thats what I think) is this phone doesnt support A2DP profile... I have motorola HT820 and I use it with my HTC Wizard (Qtek 9100) with A2DP profile works perfect... I tried them with this phone... I didnt see any stereo profile.. So this phone lacks A2DP but it doesnt matter you can use the headphones which comes in the box... Again I will point out the screen is just amazing...big and crisp.. you gotta see it to beleive it.... I got my phone for $600..not bad considering I am going to sell my old N70 =)
this is the best nokia n series and the best mobilephone ever even the n93 will be a loser the camera 3.2 megapixel,the 3d sound is perfect at all excellent!!!!!!!
Well, I just got mine & I LOVE it! Best phone EVER. And it is NOT a brick, it's actually very small, about the size of a SLVR, just a little thicker. The screen is HUGE & beautiful, the camera is as good as a regular digital camera & the reception is perfect! All you haters out there - TRY IT BEFORE TALKING BAD ABOUT IT!
