GSMArena

A work phone during the day and a multimedia device at night

from GSMArena

If you see Nokia N73 like a mobile tool for work, then you will probably not show any interest in the Carl Zeiss logo placed on the camera lens on the rear cover of the phone. Nevertheless, you will certainly appreciate the possibility to take pictures of documents and tables, read their electronic images in QuickOffice or check and manage your email box. All time organizing applications in Nokia N73, except the alarm clock, are brilliantly elaborated. The phonebook offers a virtually unlimited space plus plenty of fields for each contact, and an exceptional Web browser. Synchronization is seamless. Satisfied...

If you see Nokia N73 like a mobile tool for work, then you will probably not show any interest in the Carl Zeiss logo placed on the camera lens on the rear cover of the phone. Nevertheless, you will certainly appreciate the possibility to take pictures of documents and tables, read their electronic images in QuickOffice or check and manage your email box. All time organizing applications in Nokia N73, except the alarm clock, are brilliantly elaborated. The phonebook offers a virtually unlimited space plus plenty of fields for each contact, and an exceptional Web browser. Synchronization is seamless. Satisfied?

You should be. But I know and expect your response: "Where's Wi-Fi?"... Well, nowhere...The absence of Wi-Fi damns the phone... gives it a black point...and may easily be a decisive matter at the moment of purchase.

If - on the contrary - Nokia N73 is more of a "multimedia computer" for you, you will be fascinated by its camera abilities. The phone makes some of the best photos a mobile phone has ever been able to make; macro is superb, flash is powerful. Nokia N73 does not lack a music player (an additional memory card to be bought separately is a must), nor earphones (adapter required). It plays movies and manages video calls.

And finally, if you need a work phone during the day and a multimedia device at night, then Nokia N73 is ideal for you.

Pro: - Con: - well i have a N73 right now everyone just call me stupid to buy this but i'm happy to buy it.they told me it's an old cell and doesn't need to spend your money on it. but honesty,it was the best mobile phone of all time through the 1 or 2 years ago and it's still great to work with very soft and correct keys.with a loud 3d speakers and a cool camera you will be able to take awsome photos and listen to your favorite music everywhere. i suggest that I is Good to buy but not Perfect... if I want to suggest that what device can beat it, N95 8GB because of camera and N96 because of Camera and music player. I love the N73 and truly it was the best at it's own time. Less

Pro: Phone Of Greatness Con: Bluetooth Tech, Infra, Camera, but Poor Screen and main button. I'm also one the N73 Music Edition user, N73 special feather are: bluetooth, Infra, Canera 3.2MP, 256K screen, 2GB of MiniSD Memory, 42 - 44MB of phone memory, 2 stereo speaker...etc, i think N73 mayb one of the best the first phone ever in the N-Family, why? because see N73 is a phone that equip with bluetooth and infra technology, i think most of the N-series phone are not equip with full feature like this N73. but i think N73 has 1 disadvantage because of N73 has a poor screen it's 256K, but not T16M screen. and with the camera, N73 also the first camera eqiup with Carl Zeiss Tessar 2.8/5.6 AF 3.2 Megapixel with the autofocus camera. but i think N73's feature got some old tech program. however N73 still one of the first phone that eqiup with all in one technology ever invent by Nokia Corp.

The music sounds tiny until you get the phone nearer to your ear. However, it has many good things about it. The speaker is very clear even in noise, the colors are deep, the resolution is great and pictures are standard. Less
