hey, ive had the n80 for a few weeks, its the best phone i've bought yet although i was dissapointed with its battery life and lack of good programs, also the fact that u cant turn off the camera flash even after its set on off. bottom line it got thrown in a pool, and remerkably it was fixed but it sounds as if its hanging on a thread which is why im gonna sell it, so wat would u guys recommend, i enjoyed the n80 very much, but should i buy another n80 or the k800? its a realy important desicon for me because the next phone i decide to buy is gonna be around for a year if not more!
thx for the feed back...bye
viewers i bought n80 2 days ago. but now im dissapointed. they say that teh camera is 3.2 MP but sorry to say to me its like vga camera. when i saw the taken pics on my monitor i was shocked and the night mode is absolutely rubbish. now i will never go for nokia.. Sony Ericson ROCKS !!
Hi sorry it's Eddie again
I ofrgot to mention that unlike the 6650 i cannot send videos or pics that are more than 100 kb to another mobile, with the 6650 you can send quite big files so i was wells urprised about that when I called 02 to ask why I couldn't send big files the lady on the other end said it was beacsue the N80 had so many functions on it that something had to give! I am so glad that i'm back with the 6650, it kinda defeats the object that you buy a newer phone but cant do half as much as your old phone can do.
When your in image mode with the N80 and you want to go to video Mode, compared to what you gave to do to get into Vid mode is just grief with the 6650 simply click! and then your in video mode! you save so much time
Anyway your not going to hear from me again (Not until i cast my opinion on th N72 anyway ! Laterzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I have the Nokia 6650 and I upgraded to the N80 Big Mistake! What I hated about the N80 is that when you transfer pictures to it, every pic, every video you have on it,all gets kept on one page! Sure you can create Albums/folders but you cant delete the pics of the page once they're in the album which isn't really a good idea especially say if you have rude pics of your missus! With the 6650 you transfer straight into whatever folder you like! Hey Presto! Privacy!
Also you have to get really used to taking a pic and not getting your finger across the camera screen (which has no cover) and also a very disappointing thing is you have to have the phone in a rectangular position to take a pic especialy if you want the pic as a screensaver.
I sent it back and im now going to wait on the new N73 which pretty much resembles my old Nokia 6650 so with a bit of luck the control functions will be the same, the N80 is a
beautiful looking phone but Nokia need to think about some control functions
The Video Editor always used to save Randomly so that wasn't much cop
Please Nokia the best phone you ever had out was the 6650 can't you build on that? When I sent the N80 back and got back with the 6650 it was so simple to use
On the other hand if anyone can find a way of not having all the pics on Pic and video screen im prety sure my email address is left at the top of this page.

to jmc saw your post have not used this option but its there somwhere..Have seen it written in some written report & trying to find it.If you wonder into wi-fi it will switch to it or if wi-fi or 3g not available it uses gprs...That would drain the battery more but would it affect txting???im voda uk and from pressing SEND & recieving the delivered report its 28 seconds
when the gameboy come out they made a magnifier to fit over it to enlarge the viewing area..Does any firm do this for mobiles as the n80 resolution is enuf to blow up a bit ,,say as big as the n93,,if not there could be a market for a slim thin plastic or glass magnifying film that just snaps onto the fone to increase the viewing experiance....The browser is fun but i still disable images most of time which does spoil the mobile experiance all because of data cost,,,it seems phone calls and txts are cheap but data huh !!!Have downloaded a basic java stopwatch & 2 java games from zedge/ mobango & things will get even better when all apps are updated & new stuff written for the series 60 third edition,,getting well into this fone as you may well guess
the BL-5B battery it comes with is physically shorter than the BL-5C by about 7 or 8 mm, roughly. Battery life is rough getting through a 100+ minute-talk-time day.
Issues i have with the phone:
It hangs for no reason and sometimes gets back on it's feet. other times it's take the battery out time.
Texts are amazingly slow which means you can't use your phone til it's settled back down.
Battery lasts a day if you don't use it.
i dunno wat some ppl are on bout, hav had the phone for a while, hav had no problems watsoeva... best phone i'v eva used
i had this fone for a week when it was first released in the philippines..i sold it as soon as i could.. it took almost 3-5min to send a text..same problem with the n91 i had previously..nokia is experiencing a lot of bugs with the n series..best opt and buy a k800 instead..
this phone is nice and gr8 to look at however i wud not recommend it to anyone. the battery life is a shamble honestly if you use it all the time you will need to charge it twice a day! nokia have really gone down in my estimations to launch a phone like this and the battery life does not last a day!
I'm In England kenny. It is my first Symbian phone admittedly. I've changed from dual bands to GSM and not noticed any difference.
" dont use wi-fi but there is settings in phone so your device can choose the optimun data route so first it will search for wi-fi then 3g & lastly gprs so going thru this procedure can hinder txt sending"
Where abouts is this Kenny?
to jmc,, where are you in world firstly?? next any outgoing or incoming txts emails etc will delay txt message sending so if your a busy user sometimes TXT NOT SENT can appear if your whipping off txts & there coming in as well,,,i dont use wi-fi but there is settings in phone so your device can choose the optimun data route so first it will search for wi-fi then 3g & lastly gprs so going thru this procedure can hinder txt sending,,,Next have you sent a txt before on a symbian device because it not as fast as my w900i,,thats all i can think of at moment but mine seems generally normal but i would not say it was speedy
I'm actually thinking of sending this back it's annoying me. However i might persevere as it is a good phone apart from the crashes (which tech support are sorting *cough*).
From what i can gather through the posts a bigger mem card and firmware update will speed things up? Now can someone tell me if this has made their texts send at a "normal" speed and not the minute or two it takes me now.
Symbian is wonderful, Wifi I could kiss the guy who invented it but if it can't send a text message quickly so you can use other features like make a phone call then it's all going to pot somewhere along the way and someone needs to remind themselves it's a phone with extra features but a phone none the less.
i buy today the n80 mbl is very good and preety bt i have to charge it 24 hours sooo....im goin to have it tomorrow at 10:40
"can anyone tell me if there is a way to get the keypad locked automatically just like the other nokia models?"
Yes it can!
This is a very great great phone... with cool pix and the greatest resolusion. But batterie life is abit poor. Ho, is that the BL-5C can help with this problem?
But till now i still cant not find any software compatable to this phone yet!
Could anyone tell me some web address to get N80 soft for free... or if you have some can you upload it to my yahoo mail box: email@example.com
Ho, i got one more problem! It is about the yahoomail on my mobile... what can i do to retrieve the mail from my mail box to my phone... I wondering about the yahoo user name! Is that the ID?
Ok thanks for read my opinion...
Its ok. i was told that the BL-6C Battery cant work with the Nokia N80
