Carl Zeiss - what a SCAM...
Ok, the N73 is a decent handset, but the camera is a total SCAM. The label "Carl Zeiss" is a Marketing tool, not a real asset. Any NOKIA N-Series phone, with exception of N90 and N93 have no real "lenses" in the first place.
It's a small hole with lots of plastic around it, hardly anything I could call a lense.
In comparison, SHARP uses FIVE (5) lenses in the 902 & 903SH. Real lenses that move (optical zoom), the same technology used in most SONY and PANASONIC slim-line cameras. Don't tell me that this 3mm hole in the N73's case is supposed to beat the rest.
Great phone, but don't be fooled by the camera.
Q: Does the agenda function of the N73 synchronize with Lotus Notes ? If so is the cable to do so delivered with the Phone ?
Who can elaborate on this ??
At first glance I thought I was looking at a silver SE w800i.
Then when I saw how crap the picture quality was to SE's k800i cybershot phone I came to my senses.
Sorry, Nokia seems to be struggling to make an impression in the camera department, with their gimmick "Carl Zeiss" lens (which btw is rented from Sony).
Now, Nokia seems to be struggling with new mobile phone designs, as you can see the N73 clearly rips of SE's w800i walkman phone, except it's silver.
Dude with the poll result,
Seriously, you speak as though you are incapable of intellectual thought. You point is that beacause the majority said so, its true?? Do you know how stupid that is?
If that were the case, the earth would still be flat, the sun would rotate around the earth, and Zesus would still be God.
The point is that OF COURSE, stupid ppl(who often are in the marjority) with absolutely no basis knowledge of photography will be fooled by colour saturation. Doesn't mean that it is better either. Just because more ppl says so doesnt mean its true. This so called "professionals" are able to be more discerning, which is why they are reviewing and not you.
mobile review dil a poll, when they printed pictures of the n73 k800 d900.
brand name had nothing to do with them because they were not told what phone took the picture
Voted Best Quality
Nokia n73 50%, Nokia n93 30%, Sony Ericsson K800 20%, Samsung D900 0%
Nokia n73 30%, Nokia N93 30%, SE k800 30%, Samsung d900 10%
Nokia n73 10%, nokia n93 20%, Sony ericsson k800 30%, d900, 40%
whatever the "professionals" said its simply not true. as you can see people prefered nokia pictures over sony ericsson by a margin of 80%, that a TRULY beat. SE lost hard.
remenber this survey was done by you users. so the "professional" can go and eat their socks with "natural colors" Bull****
this parapraph its translated used altavista so its not so good.
Result is exponential and demonstrates, that the users prefer bright picture, than its dimmer analog, but with the natural transfer it is color. In this case so strange a position Samsung in the comparison is caused by the not so much real quality of the photographs (it compared between all cameras), as do not always grow prettier by the study of the details of background, by the large approximation of picture in a number of cases (they commented on precisely in such a way that on the photograph is placed less than details). I think, the obtained result is very eloquent and contradicts the conventional opinion, which was established among the medium professional journalists (larger part, in any case), about the superiority of camera Sony Ericsson K800i. User votes for the colorful picture.
However, a similar comparison we conducted for the photographs on PK, here picture was observed approximately the same. For simplification in the task we conducted also the paired comparisons, when were proposed to estimate not all 4 photographs, but only two. In pair Nokia N73 and Nokia N93 the victory remained for Nokia N73 in 85 percent of the cases. The outstanding index, which is not so obvious for many. In pair Sony Ericsson K800i and Nokia N73 the selection of photographs from Sony Ericsson was in 40 percent of the cases. This index clearly higher than fact that we obtained with the comparison of imprints. But also here product from Sony Ericsson could not dostich' explicit preponderance.
Just got the Nokia n73 yesterday!!! It has to be the best camera phone available on the market. I hate the SE user interface. The symbian is sooooo much more powerful than the SE interface. If you want a camera get a cybershot. If you want an awesome phone with an awesome camera get the N73. The only feather in SE's cap is the P900 series of phones. And guess what they too use the symbian OS.
if you want a digital camera in a phone buy k800
if you want a phone with an additional regular 3.2 mp camera buy n73
guys, torn between the k800i and the n73, interested for feedback from people who have used both with opinions please.
Ehh.. after reading the review, i still can't find the detail answer for some of my questions.
How is the battery life? With a powerful 1100 mAh battery, it shouldn't have to be charge every single night of common usage as the reviewer said right?
I am also curious about the quality of the standard earphones provided by Nokia. This is such a high class mobile phone, shouldn't it come with a good stereo sound earphones, saving us to buy an 3.5mm adapter and another earphones from third party suppliers?
I am the one who listsen to music through loud speakers of the phone pretty often. So how is the quality of the build-in pair of stereo loud speaker?
By the way, this would be a perfect phone with Wi-Fi and a 3.5mm audio jack. Thanks for any replied answer.
Yeah, guys, Nokia beats Sony-Ericsson? Well, sure, with that radio-active flower macro:
Simply: Nokia - was, is, will, suck in its colors smearing. However, the video quality is amesome.
Hmm, wonder why they didn't test how long can it last just playing music? Is it just a few hours (3-5 or so) or long (10hrs+)??
for the first time i can say that nokia can beat sony ericsson in camera...even the cyber-shot k800 didnt get over it
good job nokia , but i know ur marketing trics in doing the camera cover loosy , making a not basic keybad is also to be black-spotted !!
next time ship a good model like this one without the other n93 to make the max sales !
not sure about this review!!! not all N73 comes with 128MB mini SD card some people get there's without others Do. did not see him test out the video recording of this phone he just talked about it
this review was borning!!!
Are you kidding me? No Wi-Fi??? How can this phone beat the jack-of-all-trades N80?
I have just read the GSMArena review and guess I must have had a dodgy phone but I didn't find the N73 as great as all that. In particular I found the camera was not very good, the macro was very inconsistent and could not compare to the SE K800i.
At the moment I am stil using the phone I have had for over 3 years. The Nokia 3650. In the last two months I have tried and sent back the SE W810i, SE K800i, the Nokia N80 and N73 and have tried using my wife's N70. I still cannot find a phone I like better than the 3650 but am looking forward to trying the SE P990i when it eventually arrives in the UK.
Would have been almost perfect for me if Blackberry Connect worked on it but apparently not the case...
ps : yes Quad band, edge and UMTS... (like E60 and E61)
nice review.....but i dont think no wi-fi is to be considered as a con.......
