it is kind of big... but the sound quality, battery power, and lcd ... compensate for the size... got it in manila for about 750usd with 512mb mini sd. n80 is nothing compared to d powers of this unit. k800 loses to the sound quality n volume when playing mp3 directly from the phone. i give it a 9
just bought the phone today in thailand for about 800USD.just one word AWESOME.Who cares if its big its just bloody awesome.
to whomever it was that posted a reply to anette..you did not read her post correctly..she has the fone and is happy with it.. geez i wonder why people bother posting anything when they dont know what they are talking about..and i agree, it is a good idea to wait for the price to go down. nokia is notorious for short term resale value..
Does anyone know how to use 3G? do I have to activate with cingular to use it?
this multimedia computer is just amazing. I had opportunity for test it, and its perfect! The quality of photos is enhanced by the auto-focus; the video catch is perfect!
well if you dont feel this phone because of its size then choose other model okei....
n93 is not created only to satisfy your taste..in fact,why do you post comment here if you dont like this n93?
nokia will never force you to but this crap...
youre free to choose what model would fit you....its a matter choice remember.......
I think waiting for the price to go down is not stupid. Its STUPID for YOU to buy the phone now and fall on Nokia's trap. But since You do not value your money, go ahead and make Nokia happy.But after a few weeks dont regret that the price of your phone had gone done and realize that some of your money was wasted.
While i have not brought this phone, or even touched it, or even seen it with my own eyes i can say that i will be getting it. Yes, ok it is big...we can all see that and yes we have deffinatly been told about it..but you have to look at the pros and cons. its big, but on the other hand it has a fantastic camera with optical zoom.
All the connectivity you could ever want.
All the imaging you could ever want.
If you argue the point that the quality of the camera or the camcorder is not that good of quality then go out and buy one.
THIS IS A PHONE - with the function of a camcorder/camera not the other way round. Its not going to be perfect but it perfect for the average to above average person that just wants to be able to capture day to day life and those special moments.
The swivel screen is great. on the nokia nseries website you can see that the swivel is constructed well..its only been relesed for 2 weeks..how would people know that the screen breaks easily???
With a big phones comes a big screen and i love big screens hehe all the better to see you with.
As for the price - ok so it isnt the cheapest phone on the market but its not just a normal phone eather, think about it (these are in NZD) a entry leavel camera will be $250 a camcorder with the same or similar specs are $900, a good smartphone will be around $600 - add it up and you get $1750 and this phone retails for $1799 in a store over here...so as you can see its not all that bad. If you want all these features then pay the price. Waiting for the price to go down is stupid because then a new model will be relesed and then you wil want that.
Conclusion - Its a great phone, packed full of features and function. The price is a little high but not in a stupid over the top way, the size just lets you know that it has all these functions.
I will be buying one in the next week so if anyone has any questions about it i would be more tha happy to give you the answers :)
Everybody have a fantastic Night :)
Everyone talks about how big this phone is and that it not should be a phone for women. What kind of crap is that!!!! I'm a women, 43 years of age, mariied with child, works as a headnurse in a psyciatric ward - and I want the best phone I can get! Why should this phone not be for me? It's a great phone for me and other women! I heve no more use for a separate camera, phone or musicplayer. In this I have all-in-one! I'have easy acsess to my calendar with thins to do. The camera is great, takes highquality photos/videos, is easy to use. Yesterday I took videos and photos of mine and my friends kids on the beach - great!!!And it's not as big as some people say, it easy slips in to my small purse. So you "bratz"-guys - this thing is not for you only!!!
anyone heard about the n95....?? its spy shots are all over the net....check it out...its features are super cool...5mp cam...16million colours on screen...4 gb hard disk with mem card slot for extra mem...dvd like vid rec(vga 30fps)...and much more...
guys..i've been monitoring ur opinions lately...i've noticed that all of u r too concerned bout the camera and os...but ignoring a very basic need which we have in our mobiles these days....SOUND AND MUSIC....so i thought that i should now start posting along with u guyz....so....ever wondered what u'll do with a gud camera or os when ur travelling and want to hear some gud music and relax...i'm not against any phone...i'm with n93 as much as i'm with the se k790/800....its just that we need to understand that if nokia n93's music and sound qual.(BOTH SPEAKER AND HEADSET) is even comparable to SE K800/790...then i'll prefer nokia n93....xenon's not that imp.(after all how many of us take pic's in complete darkness)...camera's more or less the same...so
if anyone who's experienced sony ericsson's sound, and is now using a n93, can let me know bout n93's sound quality(if it's 3d stereo or not..like se)then i'll be gr8ful.....
waitin for sm1's honest answer to my question....
Today I saw it in a GSM retail SHOP , in Bucharest, Romaaia . It was rated as a Exclusivity , the color of it, was Black , and costed around 750Euros , without a subscription (simn free) , it was BIG , verry BIG , but SMART , "Multimedia Computer" :):D
May I give you some information (to our friends correct me if I'm wrong).
All Nokia phones in your list are smartphone and SEK800 is not. Smartphone is relative slower than non smartphone and also more expensive.
From that I have read,I think N73 has louder external speaker (because it has 2 speakers).
But the quality of music from the headset (this is very personal) some like SE but other like Nokia sound.
Nokia is generally better in video (especially N93) but you must look by yourself.
For camera you can look at the examples from many reviews.But I think the settings and ability from K800i is better, however not too much.N93 has special with optical zoom that other type don't have it.
If you don't need smartphone,not too excellent camera, goed music quality, goed video; what do you think about SE W900i?
It has goed camera for 2 Mpx,can reply video VGA quality with 30 fps (like N93) with chip Nvidia,3G, non smartphone,limited edition and quality music from walkman series (especially from headset).
Just an opini.
Attention!Nokia management, pls dont overcharged people who are crazy about your mobile phones. The whole world knows that your phones are expensive when its new BUT for sure price will surely go down after some time. So,just why not give us reasonable price from the start? or its really Money Making Business after all.
attention folks,you can buy N93 in dubai for 3,299.dhs or 896 usd. Too much? yes, its too much!best way to buy this is wait for a few months or when other brands will compete for this with their version then for sure price will fall down. just see other Nokia model like N91. Thnks. YFN (your friendly neighborhood)
exclusive n93 videos here u go
ATTN: N93 owners, i have an n80, and am wondering about gettin this, but dunno if its worth it....excluding the capabilites of the camera i.e pics/video, is it really worth me changing from the n80 to the n93
the specs of the n93 are good..but knowing nokia it will be a few months b4 they release another unit that will replace the n93.. i had an n90, and it felt too big after awhile..this n93 is bigger..not for me.. better off buying the k800 for half the price and better construction..
Nobody cares that ur poor and u can only affort a cheapo computer
personally i think that the phone is accurately priced for the spec and i will deff be buying one
