Review: Nokia E73 Mode

The E73 comes with Nokia's S60 Browser, which is highly capable and does a pretty good job of rendering html web pages.

The S60 browser performed admirably even with EDGE coverage. Using T-Mobile's 3G or Wi-Fi networks to browse the web simply makes it all the faster. The browser offers lots of rich features, including the minimap to let you see an overview of each page you are browsing. The "back" feature also lets you see multiple web pages by giving you a preview of the last pages visited so you can choose the exact page to which you wish to navigate. It sort of mimics having multiple tabs open.

My biggest complaint with the browser is the clunky menus and software. It just gets too cluttered too fast with options, selections and text. Nokia needs to refresh the browser with simpler, easier-to-understand controls. One thing that definitely needs to be improved: the URL address bar. It is too easy to type a partial URL and then accidentally send the browser off to find it before you're finished typing.



S60 can be customized to such a large degree that we don't even know where to start. Just about every screen, menu, level, setting or option imaginable can be altered to better suit users' tastes.

The home screen can be viewed with nothing on it but wallpaper or with the application dock and today screen. The main menu can be set to grid or list views, depending on your preferences. Ringtones are fully customizable for each contact, and can be set to music files that are on the phone. Wallpapers are easily set from the gallery application.

The ability to move applications and folders to other places on the phone is extremely helpful.
