N95 vs. N93i vs. Kodak Z740

The mobiles become better and better and also their cameras become better. However, are real cameras still better than mobiles or can mobiles like the N93i and the N95 replace them? This test will answer this question!


N95 :

The N95 has a big 5 Megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics. Unfortunately the N95 doesn’t have optical zoom and only a LED.


3.2 Megapixel with Carl Zeiss optics and a 3x optical zoom – that is the N93i.

Kodak Z740:

The Kodak has everything for perfect pictures: 5 Megapixel, a huge lens and 12x optical zoom.

The picture of the Kodak is the best. The picture is shape and the colors are strong. Howerver, all in all you can read on all 3 pictures the most important things.

The colors of all 3 pictures are different. The N93i is really pale and not so good as the Kodak.

The automode of all 3 devices used the flash. The picture of the N95 looks most natural. Unfortunately is the LED of the N93i not strong enough to capture good pictures in bad light conditionals.

It’s zoom time! The Kodak and N93i have a optical zoom so that the picture is really sharp. Amazing, the picture of the N95 also looks good, it’s different to see that the N95 works with a digital zoom.

The Kodak makes the best pictures. All pictures are sharp and the colours are strong. The flash is really useful and makes also great pictures in dark areas. Second places goes to the N95. The pictures of the N95 are good.Unfortunately some pictures of the N95 are not sharp enough. However all in all is the N95 a good camera replacement for people who need their camera for snapshots. Last but not least the N93i what really disappoints me. The pictures are really pail and aren’t sharp enough. The only plus-point is the optical zoom. So, if you need a camera for a important day (e.g. wedding) it would be better to use a digital camera. Mobiles are good for snapshots but nothing more.

  1. Sad really, but the missing optical zoom on the N95 is starting to really annoy me.

    Great review!

  2. I hope there will be a real n93 successor soon. N96 maybe? hee

  3. Nice comparison. Both the N93i and the N95 sports super noise reduction to remove noise. N93i although more pale in colours, I personally find they are closer to what our eyes see. N95 on the other hand has the colours pushed so that everything looks like a postcard. This is a nice effect, and more pleasing to the eye, but I would have liked to see an option whereby one could turn off this superficial colour algorithm thus allowing greater flexibility of editing the image afterwards.

  6. hi. i think that this isn’t a fair test.the nokia n95 should be compared to a compact digital camera instead of one with a 12x zoom.

  7. I wished you included an E90 in the test ! To see if the 3mpx camera it has is better than the one N93i has

  8. I own a nokia n95 and it takes way better pictures than my father’s nikon coolpix S500 7.1 mp.Its pictures are more vibrant and is really great

  9. The pale problem of the n93i can be easily fixed if you actually know how to use the camera..just like every good camera you cant just point and shoot..by setting a proper exposure and lighting results are great. The n95 camera is the worst at this, proving that mpixels alone mean nothing

  10. very good and usful thanks
