You will need the autofocus if you are taking pictures of items that are really "close." Other than that, it should be OK for pictures taken from a distance.
I wish you people would learn about the phone you're trying to talk about! I work for Nokia and you have got completely the wrong idea! The phone doesn't need auto-focus, as it has an advanced crystal lens. It also has an infa red sensor behind the lens to automatically ajust the light settings. Although, you will need the newest version of software to make it work properly! You have been told!
Nokia are going to face fierce compotion when the N80 comes out,i think Nokia now better not show there new models out to early they have just done that at the Cebit exhibition an kept there new models away from the display,just hope they get new models sorted out with software problems an improve there cameras to challenge an beat the others at last
in my country cyprus the n80 mobile phone is very cheap is about 289 pounds
Nokia N80 has 3 Mp camera with a uselell 2o x digital zoom & no autofocus at all...
Nokia N80 only has 352 x 416 pixels (256 color screen)
Sharp sh904 has a 3.2 Mp camera w/ 2 x optical zoom and autofocus...
Sharp sh904 has a 480 x 640 pixel screen (16 million colors)--the best in the market
Please don't praise this phone...It doesn't have the best camera, OS, Screen, etc...
Nokia is just tricking you into buying a $800+ phone that is not the Best at all
This phone is amazing it's basically hte n70 with better design (smaller), with a slider, and the following features:
-WiFi (allowing WLAn connnection!)
-UPnP (universal plug and play technology - the worlds first phone to have it)
-3mpx camera w. 20x digi zoom
-A MUCH higher screen res, providing much better clarity and quality, NO OTHER phone has a resolution this high!
Oh and some people say that the n92 is better because it has DVB-h broadcasting which allows you to watch TV. Well the n92 doesn't have half of the features mentioned above ^ plus you can watch TV on the N80 if you are on vodafone live - you can get TV streamed over 3G for just £3 a month.
People please don't confuse Mobilereview (well respected international site) with Mobile-Review (total nonsens one man - russian show)
the reason why the N80 will cost "way more than $800" is because for some reason nokia thinks its products are so premium that they think people will pay whatever they post. Look at the N90...what a piece of heavy, large, cheap piece of garbage, and look how expensive it is?!! They try to to put "Carl Ziess" lense on the phone to try to trick all you nokia users into thinking their phone is so premium and also to justify the ridiculous price...and you people foolishly buy these over priced and under achieving products.
Stop saying crazy things over here!!, it wont cost 800$ at all. Let's be realistic guys, the SE P990 would cost 800$ and it has a touch LARG screen +………etc.
So if we compare those P990 and N80 we will see that the SE has more expensive things to offer and it will cost 800$, how in the world do you all expect the N80 would cost 800$ (NO WAY lol), as for my country we expect this phone with 700$ (AT MOST!!) and give about 20 days to go for the 650$ or even 610$ or less who knows!
Same thing happened with N90, 1st it was for about 750$ when 1st got to markets and after 20days-month it became for about 620$ and nowadays it's for 590$.
DON’T WORRY GUYS!
Almost everybody will get this phone but all you need to do is to give it some time after its being released, the cost will go down (extremely sure it will!) and don’t you all forget to get you're phones from the nearest agent in you're area cause its better anyways (Internet isn’t always good for such things and you can return you'res if some error found but you cant if its from Internet or at least would take more time)
the light one and the dark one are the same nither one is better than the other if you are so vain theat you think have a diffrent colour makes the handset better GET A LIFE
Thats good. Im living in a Finland, so here is cheaper than in other countries :D, the press price in europe in 700€. Nokia, from finland
Yup its basically N70 with wi-fi,UPnP and 3MP camera... In my country N70 sells for about $400 so why pay an extra $400 for the N80 which has a camera with no autofocus
Yup the extra $200 from the original $600 estimated price is really not worth it...
Nokia Philippines confirmed it... this [phone will be coming out by 2Q of 2006 in my country (Philippines)...I've been dying to get my hands on one since they released the news about it but if the price is $900 its not worth it...
This baby has got everyting!
Supposed to be shipping in coming month (as it says 1Q,2006).Coming up with cingular in US.
I belive a unlocked one won't be less than $800-$900 for sure.
Too expensive but too tempting as well.
Which one do you think is better?? the dark one or the light one????
