Nokia N73 Pros / Advantages:

3.2MP (Mega Pixels) Camera: The Best features of the handset includes its 3.2Megapixels camera Carl Zeiss lens that results is excellent quality pictures. You might not see the original results until you transfer the pictures on computer or print it as Nokia LCD does not provide the original quality or enhance the brightness of phone before previewing pictures. Beware of the front view camera as its result is pathetic and images taken from this camera are blurry and of no use.

Excellent quality speaker phone However the headphone does not provide the higher volume and excellent quality output. You can get excellent sound while connecting it to speakers or PC. The Speaker phone results are exceptionally good & when a ring tone plays everyone notices the quality of sound.

The processing of the camera is faster then the old S60 Nokia phones however when more data is stored on phone its processing speed become slow and we always need to remove or delete some data to make it more faster.

All other features available for calling, sending messages, MMS and opening web application however while sending MMS like other S60 phones the phone automatically compress picture size (MMS) while sending or receiving so no use of transferring these pictures to computer and no printout can be taken for the picture received on MMS. (Is old versions of Nokia like 6230 MMS was received in its full size i.e. 50kb to 100kb) e.g. a 90Kb picture send Via MMS will be converted to a 9or 7Kb picture that will not be bigger then a small icon.

Infrared and blue tooth options are included however like all other Nokia phones during file transfer Nokia mobile set does not show the Total size of file, sending size or the percentage indicator. It shows just s bar that is getting filled and giving indication of file sending. You need to have enough space in your mobile phone to receive a file via blue tooth and Infrared.

42 MB Internal Memory is good as compare to other mobile sets however still without a memory card its impossible to take pictures and store songs as average picture size of Nokia N73 when captured on full resolution is 600-700Kb so always have extra memory card to meet the needs.
