Nokia N90 review


It's big, bold and... a bit ugly

Extensive extra functions ; Good screen

Can be sluggish to use ; Colours can seem insubstantial

As much a camera as a phone, the N90 benefits from decent photo capture, two screens and an unmatched ability to edit and share what you shoot. But it's a big beast of a device

Nokia N90 - 3G Handset


Nokia has thrown oodles of features into the N90, while also making it twist in more ways than a Rubik's Cube.

Stuff magazine


As a smartphone with first-class build quality, there's not much to touch this. As a contender for the best camphone in the land, however, it doesn't cut the pixels

It feels luxurious in the hand and the two amazing screens rival the Sharp's similarly spectacular display

Nokia - N90


Nokia has come up with some kooky designs for handsets in the past, but the three-piece N90 must be in the running for the prize for the kookiest of all. It is also probably the closest ...

There is a lot to like about the N90. It is a nicely designed if large mobile phone, and the relatively big main screen makes using it for Web browsing, streaming, video calling or anything else visual a more rewarding than usual experience. The swivel...

Nokia N90. 2 MP camera possibilities


The second mode supposes working with the internal screen, the picture quality is much higher, it's more comfortable to use. Unfold the upper part of the clamshell and turn the screen. It may be either at right angles to the body or a bit slanting like...

Nokia N90


The camera though doesn't take the whole of the module, here is also a loudspeaker. Due to its top end disposition the volume is a bit higher than in the previous models

Nokia N90


Nokia's N-Series line of phones has been highly anticipated for some time. In the clamshell N90, Nokia have created a distinctive, swiveling camera ph...

2.0 Megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and autofocus, external screen, distinctive design, crisp internal screen with high resolution, display light sensor

Size and weight, small displays, lack of regular headphone jack, poor external speaker, extremely slow interface, no vibration, poor sound quality for MP3's, slow loading times at start-up, expensive

The N90 is certainly an excellent camera phone but its size and weight and extremely slow interface, amongst other issues, leave a lot to be desired. At this inflated price, we expect much better.
