Summary: It's a sign of the times that the reigning king of Nokia's N-Series is a great device but only a so-so phone. The N93 twists and rotates and folds - literally and figuratively, functioning as an all-in-one camcorder, still camera, media center.
Excerpt: Nokia N93: The famous N series by Nokia is continuously climbing up in cell phone markets. The series has numerous pros and cons but never the less; it is coming up with cell phones that Nokia itself call as multimedia computers.
Conclusion: We started this review, pointing out that N93i comes with a smaller size and a much better vision, compared to its predecessor, but, unfortunately, ‘that’s all, folks’! The functionality has not been changed at. Some say ‘better late than never’, but we are not sure that this is true for N93i.
Pros: 3x Optical Zoom, Swiveling display allows for camcorder-like experience while shooting a photo or video, with one hand only, Good speakerphone, Very good looking external display
Cons: Mediocre camera quality compared to other hi-end cameraphones, Less functionality but in bigger dimensions, compared to the N95, Your fingers often stay in front of the flash and it has no effect
Conclusion: The Nokia N93i may claim to be a camcorder but we find out it's more of a webcam. Then Nokias new brick surprises us with being a rather good camera phone and having WiFi, a real mixed bag.
Summary: Most mobile phones in the market today can only be coined as ‘evolutionary’ as manufacturers are merely improving upon existing functions, features, and design to produce a slightly improved version of outgoing models.
Summary: It will make you laugh that Nokia N93i in fact has almost no improvements over the original Nokia N93, tiny win in dimensions aside. The ergonomics of the keypad is mediocre, as folding the phone open is quite challenging because the flip is too thin, the camera has gotten worse as well.
Conclusion: In many ways, the Nokia N93 is the first cell phone of the 21st century. It is likely that as the decade proceeds, there will be equally or even more extensively equipped cell phones that will be less bulky and less expensive.
