Nokia N93 Review
Review: September 2006. Updated June 2009.
Note: the N93 is now obsolete. For a modern multimedia smartphone we
recommend the Nokia N86.
The Nokia N93 is a 3G SmartPhone with outstanding photographic capabilities,
a great music player and all the bells and whistles that you can imagine.
But this comes at a price, and not just a monetary one - it's the biggest,
heaviest phone ever made, excluding a small number of phones with PDA-like
The N93 has a twist-and-flip design that can be moved into 4 different
positions: closed when not in use, folded open for talking, a camera
mode and a viewing mode. It's a concept that works well and enables
the outstanding photographic capabilities of the device to be used conveniently.
The keypad is nice to use, with large clearly-defined keys, unlike some
of the other Nseries SmartPhones. There's a small external screen that
displays basic information, and a fantastic internal screen. The main
screen is a slightly lower resolution than the N90,
but at 2.4 inches it's physically larger than most Nseries phones, and
gives excellent colour reproduction and good visibility in sunlight.
There are dedicated keys for using the camera, including keys for the
flash and zoom. Build quality is very high and physically the design
of the N93 is superb, apart from the massive size and weight!
The N93 has an outstanding camera, and it's worth listing the specs
- 3.2 megapixels (2048 x 1536 pixels) CMOS sensor
- Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens
- 3x optical zoom
- 20x digital zoom
- Auto focus
- Auto exposure - center weighted
- Integrated flash (operating range up to 1.5m)
- Macro mode
The video recorder has the following specs:
- MPEG-4 or 3GP format
- VGA resolution (640 x 480 pixels)
- 30 fps
- 3x optical zoom
- 8x digital zoom
- Audio recording: AAC stereo, 48kHz
- Duration: up to 60 minutes
- Movie director for automated video production
Broadly speaking, the camera is as good as that on the Sony
Ericsson K800i, and the video camera is better.The N93 really sets
the benchmark for camera phones.
The N93 also comes with a superb music player that supports a wide
range of formats with high quality stereo output via headphones, with
playlists and an equalizer. The supplied software is excellent - Nokia
Music Manager handles one click CD ripping, converting and transferring
music to your device - and Windows Media Player helps you to manage
your PC music library. USB mass storage enables drag and drop functionality,
and up to 2 Gbytes of storage is supported (a 128 Mbyte card is supplied).
In addition to the media player, there's a built-in FM radio with support
for Visual Radio. You can even use the Wi-Fi connection to play video,
music and photos on a compatible TV, hifi or PC.
Full connectivity is supported: Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0 (with USB mass
storage), Infrared, Wireless LAN (802.11 b/g) & TV-Out. 3G data transfer
enables high-speed downloads of up to 384 kbps. A full web browser is
included, and the email client handles various kinds of attachments.
Really, the N93 is an incredible device with nothing missing - and
this is it's problem. The end result is that it's both very expensive
and very large - too big to put in a pocket - so it's obviously not
going to be a mainstream phone. For power users who are willing to put
up with the bulk, however, the N93 really can't be beaten. Now replaced
by the uprated Nokia N93i.
Features of the Nokia N93 include:
- 3G SmartPhone (Series 60 3rd Edition Symbian operating system)
- 3.2 megapixel (2048 x 1536 pixels) camera, Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar
lens, autofocus, 3x optical zoom, 20x digital zoom and flash
- MPEG-4 video capture of up to 30 fps at VGA resolution (640 x 480
- Digital stereo microphone
- Video and still image editors
- Main display: TFT, 262,144 colors, 320 x 240 pixels
- External display: 65,536 colours, 128 x 36 pixels
- RealPlayer media player - full-screen video playback to view downloaded,
streamed or recorded video clips (MPEG4, RealVideo formats)
- Music player: supports MP3/AAC/AAC+/eAAC+/WMA with playlists and
- Stereo FM radio (87.5-108MHz /76-90MHz) with Visual Radio support

support for images, videos, music and documents)

- Voice recorder
- Integrated hands-free speaker
- Push to Talk
- Advanced contacts database
- Java & Symbian applications

Infrared, Wireless LAN (802.11 b/g), TV-Out

hi, dont actually own the phone, but used to really want it, i think
it looks great apart from the size. also the sound that people say that
they hear when zooming, surely that is just the optical zoom, the same
sound as a compact digital camera would make when zooming or focusing.
and one other thing, Bob you say you compared it to the W810i, it may
be just be me, but i dont think that SE meant that phone to be compared
with the N93(which costs a good £200 more when bought new)

Now using this phone for 7months, I would say this phone is simply great,
a fully loaded mobile machine.excellent camera, superb music, universal
connectivty, easy to use, roughed and durable, flexible storage capability,
cute design and lots more. This phone has it all. But there is only
one problem I experience with my phone; the screen will just goes off,
or all keys will fail to responde for no reason sometimes. I have to
remove the battery, place it back and switch on the phone to restore
the normal functions. despite this, Nokia N93 remains an oustanding

This phone is awesome, I own it for 3 months now and it works perfect.
I'm wondering of those who compare SE camera with N93!!, N93 is much
better photos in dark, and in day light, my friend has SE-W810i and
we examined both phones in many ways, N93 won with no doubt in all aspects
except the size, better photos, louder & sharper sound, much better
video, bigger and sharper screen, software facilities with S60 are better
than SE-W810i, even it's faster in opening folders and programs!!...
Stop promoting SE over Nokia!

Ok, so this phone is big-ish. So big infact that it is easy to use,
see the screen, and text with - unlike all the small phones we seem
to 'Have to have' these days. Obviously it's easy to use, after all,
it is a Nokia - unlike my girlfriends Sony Ericsson thing. One of the
downsides however, is the calendar, it is absolute rubbish in comparison
to the previous 3 Nokia phones I have owned. The only other bad thing
about it, apart from the rubbish ring tones (that applies to ALL mobiles
though) is that sending a message can be a bit of a long drawn-out affair,
again, not on par with my previous 3 Nokia's. Otherwise very impressed
and well recommended.

I used to love this mobile, when I got it. Now, when you twist it it
does nothing when it is actually supposed to change mode. The camera
mode button on the side no longer locks the phone, so I have to open
the screen to lock it. It regularly freezes and crashes through simple
tasks such as changing from silent mode to outdoor, for example. It
doesn't turn off, however, it goes dark and unresponsive, so you have
to turn it on again and wait for it to load. I will be ringing Vodafone
to change this phone. I would rather have a cheaper phone that actually
works than a 'smart' phone which doesn't function correctly. I will
probably ask to go back to my Nokia N73 as this, in the week I had it
before it got wet and broke on me, actually seemed an alright phone.
At first the size of the N93 was ok. Sure it looked and felt a lot larger
than my Marine VHF Handheld Radio, but the good camera made up for the
large lump on the top. The bits needed to go somewhere. The quality
of the camera made up for the poor looks of this phone. Now, however,
it doesn't work well and it is as useless as the big bricks that you
see on American TV shows! HUGE but Rubbish!

I've had the n93 since August. This phone is supurb. The only complaint
I have is that the zoom is noisy when your taking video (this is due
to be fixed in the next upgrade). The wifi works a treat, when going
on holiday I can easily pick up free wifi connections with ease. It's
possible to get a 2gig mini sd card. Mine only cost me £20 online. That's
plenty of room for MP3's, pictures, and videos. The phone is big, but

Ive been with Sony Ericcson now for Years and was looking forward to

to go back to Nokia, whom I had not been with for 10 years amazing realy.
The phone is brilliant, it is bulky but as a ex P900 and PDA user felt
small in the hand. I love the functunality, but here is the BUT the
camera has stopped working unless i use the self timer pathetic. Ive
read many reports of camera faults and thought ok I just need to upload
the new software update to see if this is the problem as many people
had reported. To my amazement the updates for the N93 are still in development
after failures with the last attempt; this is starting to smack of Sony
ericcson. The problem now, is shall I treat this as a warrenty issue
and go back to the distributer of the phone or is it Nokia. I wish these
phone companies would start sorting out there loyalty with the customer
who spend frigging fortunes on these type of phones, whos the mug me

I just got this phone on a new contract (cheaper than upgrading)- i
got it for £50 as im on a high tarrif (£55 a month). I thought i would
get it as its the most expensive one and if i dont like it, i can sell
it for at lest £400. Anyway, i have been using it for 10 days now and
i truely love it! It is a big phone (but stylish too in the black colour).
Although i think most people would find it to bulky, but, for tall/big
people its not so bad. I my self am tall and it doesnt look odd when
i use it. However, i would not recommend this for small(ish) people-apart
from looking odd, it would be quite challenging from a practical aspect,and,
not very convenient. For me it is perfect as i truely struggle with
small phones. The phone it self has a brilliant display-its large and
enjoys great clarity-using it with GPS is perfect! As an MP3/Media player,
its great. Off-course the Cam quality is excellent and nothing comes
close to its quality on a phone-cam. As a smartphone its very fast too,
and, much faster than the N70 and N73. It also has Wifi which was very
handy when i used it in the airport recently. The screen swivels into
laptop mode which gives a brilliant view when browsing the net. I could
have gone for the PDA type phones with full keyboard but they are too
focused on the smartphone side of things-this phone does focus on entertainment
too which i regard as important when out of the office! Im not one to
follow the crowd and if you're after its feauture set, it shall not
disappoint. Overall, I Love it!

Execellent smartphone from Nokia. Apart from its astonishing optics
and video capability, people tends to forget that it edits the pictures
too. For people who rants and pants about its size and weight, hallo!
It is a smart phone and not a simple D900. It is slightly smaller when
compared to mine Palm Treo 650. Nokia doesn't loose its value in the
secondhand markt when compared to Samsung. It reads Microsoft Office
files and pdf's. Above all, mine N93 runs Tomtom navigator 6!

Honestly, I am a litte bit disappointed with the pictures that I've
taken with this fone. The SE K800i does a better job on this, especially
during the evening. However, the Nokia N93 is the only fone that is
with a 3x optical zoom (correct me if I am wrong). Moreover It does
and excellent job on video recording even comparing it to some D-Cam.
If you just need a fone that takes good pictures, don't think this is
the right one for you as it's HUGE and expensive (comparing it to the
SE K800 and the Samsung D900). However, if you are planning to sell
your ipod and your old cam corder, this fone will definetly be your
first choice. Overall, I love my N93 because I have to do a lot of video
recording and I can put down some movie clips and music for myself while
at work :p

This is a good phone. Excellent multi media. But then it is very bulky.
Despite the weight the internal memory of the phone is nothing to write
home about. Why couldn't Nokia borrow from the gigabyte memory of N91?
After placing so much good mulitmedia (video quality and megapixels
camera, fm radio) there is a scanty memory to store the various recordings
or images. Get the phone if you do not mind the weight or small internal
camera. As for me I think I would wait for samsung to come up with something
as good as before buying. I hope I do not have to wait so long.

recently my phone has taken to not opening files in the gallery without
switching itself off and then back on when it feels like it.If it wasn't
for all the technical problems i would of loved this phone,but it really
isn't worth it when you have so many problems.I have heard a lot of
complaints about the N series.In my mind a product should be perfected
before it is sold to the paying public,instead of trying to pump out
products with a high spec for a quick turnover and sacrificing quality.

This phone was an upgrade from a nokia 6230i which was bought because
i just can't get on with samsung phones, just annoying....another story
i think! As far as the Nokia N93 goes, it's a great phone, yes it's
big, but it does feel solid, i've had it for a month now and it's going
strong, i would give the phone 5 stars but it has got (what i understand
are fairly normal on nokia sybian operating systems) a few little bugs,
eg some of the videos won't play bacause the phone thinks it's run out
of memory, and occasionaly the phone says that it's closed the application
'main' - it doesn't affect the use, just a bit odd. The Camera on the
phone is great, clear crisp pictures which are very good on the tv output
as well as on the pc. The video is what really impressed me. I'd read
the reviews both on here and other places which claimed the video was
good, but when i first recorded one and watched it back i was amazed,
granted i was going from the nokia 6230i, but still, it's maybe not
up to dvd quality and in poor light (it's just fairly average, but still
watchable and good quality), in daylight outside the quality is great
and if you find fault with it then you will have to be VERY picky. What
i have found is that because the phone has so many features you tend
to get lost in the menus, and the other annoying thing was the nice
alarm set up as found on the 6230i, eg the repetition days as well as
the usual time etc. Battery life is a bit annoying, but in fairness
to the phone, i'm constantly checking it and i call my girlfriend about
3-4 times a day, at least one call for an hour or so, plus numerous
texts and video watching, it lasts two days with that use, maybe more
but i don't want to be caught out with a dead battery while out and
about. I've prob used far too much space on here now, but i honestly
have no probs with the phone at all, just the niggles i mentioned above,
but overall it's a great phone, very pleased with it, should last me
the 18 months i'm stuck with it for!! Unless you're one of those people
who hate nokia's i don't think you'll be dissappointed.

Run your finger along the screen and you will see it is soft.

this phone is not as amazing as it would have you believe. yes it is
very good but it is awkward and HUGE. for a flip phone its tonk. the
camera is its best point but otherwise it si buggy, ugly and compared
to other manufactueres a poor effort.

Don't get this phone. It took up all of my mums money and the camera

So far so good (this is not a teeny rave review). Yes it is larger and
heavier than many, but that's an advantage when searching for it in
a big handbag! It has a nice, solid, well made feel to the construction
with the exception of the back of the battery case which is a bit plasticy.
Camera - excellent. Radio reception is 100% better than the 6260. Slight
flaws - you can't turn the camera sounds off unless you switch the whole
phone to silent profile (Nokia, hello, WEDDINGS!! CHRISTENINGS!!! The
one great thing about digital cameras is that they don't make loud clicking
noises, SO WHY PUT ONE IN!!!). Also, the covering over the attachment
interface isn't connected to the camera - I've already lost mine. And,
the button that activates the flash (NB very useful torch) is on the
outside edge, very easy to switch on accidentally and drain the battery.
But, best phone so far, the 6260 is in the bin (tacky, badly constructed,
too many buttons for simple things)

I have used almost every phone in the market. But for me Nokia N93 is
the best. It really gives me a great feeling in my hands. The camera
is great but not greater that Sony's K800. Reception quality is great.
It has all the features that you need in the day to day activities.
Screen is great. Viewing photos and videos is a great expirience. My
word to all mobile lovers is go for it. I am a die hard fan of Sony
Ericsson. I always hated Nokia phones. But this is the only one in the
Nokia series that has impressed me.

Ultimately the camcorder is the best feature, followed by the 3d Video

(due to poor flash). Given the phone is proving to be popular, its a

well you could say this is just a phone, you could say this is just
another caget ( well suppose you could say that actually ) , you could
say its not worth the money or it the technology will be last weeks
news within a couple months but to be honest you'd be stupid to think
that. this phone not only has a 3.2 mega pixel camera 30 frames per
second but all the additional features on this phone means it will stand
out as one of the best well into the next year or two. besides its obvious
weight and bulk, due to the camera and general good quality parts that
went into making this outstanding phone, its surprisingly quick when
loading, robust and you'd be surprised at how easily you can carry this
around without noticing. the only downside to this mobile is its price,
i'm on a contract deal of £40 a month with 500 mins and 250 texts but
i had to pay 120 just for the phone, where i could or probably gotten
a much better deal and free phone with another n series nokia but to
be h onest its worth every peny. to sum up, this nokia n93 is way ahead
of any mobile currently out or that is going to be released in the year.
its expensive, its big , its heavy but its good quality , fast, amazingly
well set out , good sound quality , good video quality , good signal
, phone calls sound better than using your house phone , good graphics,
what else...easy to use , stunning looks , always gets people looking
when you twist this :), i could go on and its nokia!! they never let
you down. to sum up even better, buy this phone ! you will not regret
it. ( just save up:) ) hope this helps in some way.
