Good: THE CAMERA
Bad: IT'S TOO CHUNKY
Comment: the Nokia N93 works well as a mobile device, the camera is very good & is the main feature of the phone. but it lacks ease of use that you would come to find in later Nokia Nseries phones, yet it is very simple to use & would fullfill your basic mobile needs with the ability to shoot & capture DVD quality like videos & that would the main reason for you to purchase this.
Good: Able to view movies in DVD-like quality on TV with a TV-out (only converted MPEG-4 files)
Bad: Some flaws in the operating system causing some crashes
Comment: It's a quality phone with outstanding performance (got a 3.2-megapixel cam) :D:D
It has some software flaws but nothing too serious after a FREE Nokia sevice update to version 11.0.034. And what do you expect, the developers had no experience with these super-quality components, but they managed to fix something breaththaking (WELL DONE NOKIA) so having the best comes at the price of some software flaws (I don't mind!). Okay, at first it looks really huge! But when you open it up the screen absolutely is a lust for the eyes...
Good: It is solid, tactile and oozes quality. I only use it in landscape mode by turning the flip right
Bad: The fact the keyboard doesn't give a landscape setting, but I'm getting to type quite fast now
Comment: At this point in time it is the most advanced smart phone available: it is not for everyone. If you don't need to install lots of 3rd party software and use the memory card remove feature to kill all running apps occasionally, it all runs smoothly. The video playback of properly encoded films is truly amazeing in clarity and colour seperation. The gallery loads fast and so do thumbnails, including those of converted films, I just wish you could have separate folders. After installing Upnp for windows installing Home Media Server and setting up WLAN was easy. Installing your SIM for the first time the phone connects to the Network and downloads and installs all Internet, Wap MMS settings. PC suite enables synching with Outlook and is extremly quick. In general I am more than happy with it does the things I want to do very well.
