Was waiting for a long time, got the phone finally.($600 U.S.) Not very happy due to the following:
1. Poor battery life. Infact very poor.
2. Slder loose when closed.
3. Small BUT Thick, not very comfortable in hands while talking either open or closed.
4. Indicates low memory even with 9 songs downloaded with 128 MB mini SD. I had to order 2GB card.
Those who haven't bought yet might wanna look into these.
Superb phone the cameras superb an the video recording its magic as well the only thing i find when using the phone alot the Battery life is only the Downside of this phone ,hope Nokia could make a better battery to improve the Battery life on this mobile as people don"t want to spend more money buying a battery an portable charger for you to use the phone alot
bought this amazing n80 today! it's superb! but i have one question...
how do i turn on the wifi? it detected a hotspot but when i surf, it uses 3g not wifi. how do i get rid of this 3g?
thnx guys.. i think im going to get the n80... went to see the n91 and it is massive.. although very good features but was advised by lots of people that n80 is much better...
i just used 2 week,is nice phone,good sound quality and wlan.but 4band the reception just soso.i have two time jam phone i need to turn it off to start after it's ok.i am waiting sofeware unday.finally i like this phone.
3MP and 3.2MP cameras are the same... they are both actually 3.2MP cameras just marketed diferently!!! soo dont fuss about that!
600 smackers on the best phone out in the world at the moment and it comes in a lousy cardboard box! Yesh!
the feature and technology of this phone is very good, but the quality cannot match it
ABH, about flashing the handphone urself.. do u know where to get the firmware for Version 11 ? my is Nokia N80 (11) and i nid English and Traditional Chinese versions.. pls help.. thanks..
Hey , I got it too last Friday ! This phone is tops. Non other out there can beat it. After using a P900 (considered best for its time) for just over a year, I can't believe how much the technology has evolved. Wifi (g-standard) works like a dream from the word go. Nokia gives useful software with the cell (for a change). The screen is the best I ever saw in a cell. It will take some effort by the competition (including Nokia them self) to beat this one as a 'all arounder' :-)
i have this phone for only 3 days, and the slide start getting loose, and it turn off itself few times already, screen is very nice, but i rather get a refund, so if you want to buy it, better think twice
Just wondering whether the Nokia N80 has a 3MP camera or a 3.2MP camera?
Coz' i have just find out in its phone specification section of the webpage that its "3MP" camera has been changed to "3.2MP" camera.
Is this true?
Last thing, when will this phone be finally available in Indonesia? Anyone knows?
Any reply will be greatly appreciated. Thanx.
The Nokia BB5 Firmware Flashing Guide describes how to upgrade the software on the Nokia N80. This guide also works with other Nokia phones (N70, N90, 6680, 6280). By upgrading the software (firmware) you can improve the features on the phone. Upgrades usually get rid of bugs/errors.
Hope this helps!
If anyone needs the links, here they are:
By the way, after reading the review here and seeing the pictures, I originally wanted the phone in black. As Orange released the phone in silver only (surprise surprise!) silver was what I got, and I can honestly say I'm really quite pleased I did now! With so many other phones being black these days, it's made a nice change to have a silver one (my 7610 was black). And it definitely catches everybody's eye!! Everyone who has seen it so far is jealous as hell! It's quite a good feeling I have to say!!
Got this phone on upgrade from Orange nearly 2 weeks ago and I have to say yes, on the whole I'm very pleased with it. HOWEVER!!!!! In the short time I've had it, it has turned itself off four times and has twice completely frozen up and I've had to pop the battery out in order to do anything with it! Also, it has lost screen savers that I have set and has also wiped it's own memory, only for it to all come back again when I turned it off and then on again! Very strange! The resolution is great though and photo's that I have bluetoothed over from my 7610 look SO much better on this screen!!! Another point to make . . how freaked out was I when it spoke to me!! I couldn't believe my ears!! My friends all call it KITT after the Knight Rider talking car now!! An awesome piece of kit but I get the feeling Orange have stuffed it up somewhat by messing around with the software like they always do on al their phones. Don't think it'll be the only N80 I own between now and upgrade next year! I anticipate a fair few claims on phone insurance for faulty phones if this one's anything to go by!!
