Review N73


This is a phone that came out about two months ago now, and I think I have put it through the hoops. Its a really good phone but with a few kinks to work out.


  • Strong signal
  • Bright and large screen
  • Extremely good web browser
  • Very load speaker
  • Very good pictures
  • Lots of tools
  • Very versatile information for contacts
  • Long battery life
  • Very light for size
  • Good buttons and joystick
  • Multimedia player is very good, and slideshow for pictures is very good.
  • Sms stored on Mini-SD so it can be moved
  • No limit on number of SMSes and Contacts. I havent reached the limit yet and Im at 867 messages with 483 contacts.
  • Keypad lights up only in the dark. (Light Sensitive)


  • Slow to load sms or mms menu (new or to read)
  • A bit slow to open contacts
  • Freezes if you try too many things when its running slow
  • Multimedia loads a bit slow as well
  • Bluetooth needs to be adjusted, it seems not one to connect after a few times. Then you have to restart it to get the Bluetooth working again.

Overall I think its a great phone, but I wish it wasnt slow for sms and contacts since its the two things that I use the most. So its a bit frustrating when I have to send a quick sms, and if you try to force it then it will hang even more. But I think if it gets a software upgrade maybe they worked on that part. If the software improves I would bump it up to 4 stars!

Price: 143 KD

  1. :: For SMS/MMS (slow matter) try to switch the memory from ur Memory card to Phone memory …

    For contacts its working fine with me and it is normal


  2. its a good phone… btw, whats up with u and John Smith??? “looking forward to see u soon??” :P

  3. The slowdowns are because of the buggy S60.3 operating system. Check with Nokia if they have any updates .. it made a huge difference on my N80.

  4. I was thinking about getting one .. but the number keys were too plasic-y for my tastes.

  5. Frankom: i was using phone memory for a while and nothing made that much of a difference! Its always relatively slow for some reason!

    Fonzy: I dont know who John Smith is! looool!

    Cyber: your right!

    K: I will try to update at a later point! I think the camera is great on it and I love the speaker but the damn msg is really slow. I hope they have an update soon!

  6. I hate slow phones. Responsiveness is vital.

    “Long battery life”
    Could you be more specific?

  7. 3baid: 3 days with normal usage, and im the type to use a phone!

  8. Nokia .. so not my TASTE.. you never find these kinds of problems with SE phones.. Heck even Motoroalla’s are better than Nokia’s in my Case :S… K800i Rules .. and the P990 and the M600

  9. fractal: K800i seems to be working well for people! Nice! 990 is waaayyy too big! I just saw it yesterday!

  10. i’m an ericsson gal.. using the K800i and loving it. BUT, if i were to consider using a nokia, the N73 woulda been my choice. however, considering ur comment about response rate, strike that thought.

  11. MSB: hehehe.. yeah I dont think it would suit your needs!
