Do u know sheikh? can u ask him where did he find n80 for $550. thx
i juz got my N80 fix from dealer due to start up failure... and 2days after dat i encounter another problem... the switch on button does not work completely... n i tried to remove the battery and once i inserting the battery.. then the phone automatically switch on without pressing the button...n now i hav to send it back to the dealer.... could it be a defective product???
Has anyone tried disabling all the various connections to determine if there's better battery life on the N80?
Eg. Disable wifi / bluetooth / infra-red. Etc. As most of these comms chew up battery like no tomorrow.
At last, a review of a PRODUCTION model N80
hey peps, i quite like this phone, the only thing im nt too sure bout i s the size, reminds me of the horrible 7650... anyway, i like the n91 even more 'cos of its music function. So the question is, which one should i get as both are due on o2 later this month. What are the pros and cons of each the n80 and n91.
ta for responces...
does anyone know why most stores sell the black version of the N80? Ive asked all around and almost all stores only have black!! And i've noticed that the silver color costs more than the black!! is the silver better than the black?? is it a limited edition?
okay 2gig miniSDs do work in an N80, but in my experience they are unstable (work sometimes and not others. - i bet a firmware update will fix this).
nokia have confirmed that the largest 'supported' miniSD is 1gig. this comment of theirs is rather general as it does not confirm a 2gig wont work. basically a 1gig is guaranteed and a 2gig is not.
my card is made by memorycorp and they state that it should be compat with the N80, they've said its 100% compat with all MiniSD branded devices.....
i plan to upgrade firmware in the future.
What is the difference between Mini SD and RS-MMC, I thought this phone took mini SD.
What is the difference between the Black and Silver one, and why was it a mistake to get the black one? I would think it would be better to get the black one because fingerprints don't appear on it, as it would on the silver one.
Got the phone. its fat.
On eBay it goes. Cash made is going on an N73.
Juz bought N80,found my keypad no. 6 is a bit harder to press than the other buttons.Anyone encounter this problem too?
the battery life is not '3 hours max' i have used wifi for over an hour browsing html pages, bluetooth on constantly, taken pictures and sent txts for an entire day and the battery life still had 2 bars left.
so if you use it a lot you will just need to put it on charge every night...
Hey can u tell me where did u find the Nokia N80 for $550?
my head is shouting "GET N80, GET N80!!!" I don't know what to get, Ive got so much money and so little time, theres the N92 aswell in my head and the N91, WHICH ONE?!!!
How can u compare the motorola A1200 to the N80..
things the n80 has which a1200 doesn't:
-Secondary camera for video calls
MARK: why was it a mistake to get it in black? has the OS improved much at all?
Very important info for owners and interested buyers, pertaining to the video issue.[/B]
I just bought mine yesterday, and had the really nasty shock from the video capturing. (I didn't read these forums thoroughly). In one word, the quality is APPALLING. Discoloured, smudgy, jerky. Flooded with noise. If you use it under flouroscent, you can actually see horizontal boxes streaming downwards.
So. I called the Singaporean Nokia helpdesk twice today. And went to two service centres.
The first service centre (Suntec City) was absolutely helpless. The lady didn't understand what I meant by "a lot of noise in the video quality" and took it that I was complaining about the audio of the recording. After much explanation, she told me that branch had no technican or engineer available that day and I may like to consider returning tomorrow.
That's ludricrous, isn't it?
I went off, and called the helpdesk. According to the helpdesk, the N70 has a larger lens aperture than the N80, so that might result in the "better quality" video especially in terms of lighting. I didn't accept that because the difference in quality is far more than just marginal.
After hanging up, I proceeded to the Wheelock Place branch. Upon examination by the available engineers there, they told me that indeed something is wrong with the camera. The quality of the video recording should be much better. Currently, I have left the phone with them for detailed checking. They didn't, however, tell me how long it would take.
So for those facing this problem, I advise you go to a nokia centre and insist on the problem. Because I honestly do think that it's not what it's supposed to be. I may be nitpicking. But the videos taken by the secondary VGA camera on my set is actually better than those taken by the main camera.
PS: I've considered exchanging for another set yesterday, but eventually changed my mind. This is even though I may have to live with the horrid video recorder. Reasons are:
1) The Symbian (not that it was ever an issue for me), is indeed smoother and faster. Although, be prepared to lose all your previous programmes, Java or Symbian.
2) Much more sophisticated camera options, and music player options.
3) Speakers surprising loud and good. Ear piece is also much better than the stupid and stiff lanyard one that comes with the earlier N series.
4) Gorgeous display. This is probably the last N series to use 352 by 416. I think it has something to do with the resolution being too high for most softwares, esp Java. Anybody can confirm?
5) Needless to say. The Wi Fi
