I actually have a question regarding this phone rather than a opinion.
I am awaiting my upgrade date to come around and i am not sure if i should wait for the N80 or get the N70. I love the N70 for the feel, it has not get that plastic feel. The 6280 out soon is platic feeling, the N80 looks simular. Anyone tell me if it feels like the N70?
"Why does some people complain about the screen only having 256K colors? You can't tell any differens between 256K and 65K."
Doesn't make any sense Basse. Theres a huge difference.
And, Yeah the music player is definatly stereo sound.
Just checked the N80 website,it says Music Player with Stereo Audio.
I don't think Nokia would be dumb enough to screw over another potentially good product by giving it mono audio again.
I will probably be getting this phone,but a question begs to be answered.
Is mp3 playback stereo or mono?If it's mono,I will skip this phone and stick to my PSP.
Why does some people complain about the screen only having 256K colors? You can't tell any differens between 256K and 65K.
I got the mobile 3 days back by one of the vendors. after 3 days testing this is what I found:
- N80 is faster than my N70
- I have 2 2GB card and it was tested fine (great..2G ..waaw)
- Speaker quality is excelent , same like the N70
- Nokia representative said that the price would be around 500 Euro (same as N70 when it was released)
- Upnp was tested with my TV which also support Upnp, it was great (N70 does not support Upnp)
- Video zooming is 5X
-N80 is small compared to all smart phones, smaller than my N70
- Screen resolution is EXCELENT, the best, way better than my N70
- I was able to play Mpeg4 files
- Keypad was goos, (N70 is 1% better)
- Support Wifi while N70 don't
- have new symbian OS while N70 supports the old one
- camera is 3Mp while my N70 is only 2Mp
So after this conclusion N80 is much much beter than my N70. I think i'm gonna sell my phone and get the new N80
I gotta this phone.
.It's terribly slow
.Doesn't have optical zoom
.Card is only up to 2GB (whereas N70 is upto 4GB)
.Music player is mono only radio is stereo
.UpNp is quite complicated
.U can't put themes
.20x Zooming doesn't apply when u takin video
.Video is the same as N70 (CIF)
.Quite heavy and big (it's like a brick in your pocket)
.Doesn't play M-peg 4 formats whereas the N70 does
.It's really thick
.The display size is really big so u won't be able to see things on your screen clearly
.It's extremely fragile
.Buttons are not comfortable
So after this conclusion N70 is much much beter than N80 and it's also cheaper. I think i'm gonna sell my phone and get the best phone of nokia..... N70
"Man will you shut up! Camera is still good and yeah it doesn't have optical zoom wow!..."
Was that directed at me? If it was, you have completly misunderstood the whole situation. I have the exact same opinion as you! I'm defending the N80 here... If it was directed at Louis_Loh then ignore this comment... Or maybe you read what I quouted and thought that was what I said? Well it wasn't.
omg, everyone goes crazy about this phone. it's quite good, already. guess it's the right one for me; and to be honest: i find it useless to quarrel on such banal topics; now go and switch of your pc and get drunk or talk to someone.
"Hmm, Alexx, megapixel count seriously does NOT determine the quality of a camera, and OPITCAL zoom involves the moving of the lens to sorta magnify a thing (not sure about this though), while DIGITAL zoom is only CROPPING and ENLARGING, making the image quality poorer. I can easily do a 100X digital zoom with a computer, can an N80 do that? NO. I can do a 2X OPTICAL zoom with a 903, can a COMPUTER do that? NO. You see, digital zoom is simply crap. And with regard to the part where "2 times is NOTHING", please, u are at a cliff's end, u wanna enlarge the details, DIGITAL ZOOM does crap, and u dun wanna fall of the cliff, therefore, OPITCAL zoom comes into play, hope u understand that OPTICAL zoom in a phone is indeed a evolution and a great step towards proper digicams."
Why are you telling me stuff I already know? I kept on reading your post and I just couldnt figure out what in the world was your point in posting it. I knew every single word of what you said already. Where did I say that megapixels determine the quality of the picture? Where did I say I say digital zoom was good, and optical zoom was bad (or even equal)? Optical zoom is great, but 2x optical zoom is nothing. Regarding your "cliff situation" it just sounds like a desperate attempt to defend your pitful 2x zoom. 1# How often are you in a situation like that? 2# a 20x zoom would be good, a 2x zoom WONT HELP YOU ONE BIT. 3# It sounds like you wanna take a professinal photo of a beatiful scenery here (since you NEED your 2x zoom) and if thats the case you would be better off with something FAR better than a phonecamera, its meant for personal pictures, not professional pictures. Personally I'd prefer a panorama picture in a situation like this (which N80 has, while Sharp 903 doesn't).
Btw... N80 can easily have 100X zoom with 3rd party apps so you what you said is incorrect.
Too many choices,comments,tastes,needs,everyone is different and beyond perfection,so the phones must be like us.They cannot please everyone.N80,92 are by far the best mobiles for 2006.N80 for 3mp camera,display resolution and dimensions related to functions and n92 for display dimension and dvb.
to all the mobile phone users who love technology as well as design of the mobile phone i think this is one of the best nokia experiment and they created the dynamite in their job that is nokia n80
If the only reason you are considering the N80 is because u want a camera fone, don't get it because it's a waste of ur money. The n80 is packed with features and if all u are interested in is the camera get urself some other cheaper fone with a camera on.
does it zoom 20x in video as well or only 5x in video??cuz if its 5x in video i would rather get the n70
plz answer fast cuz i need to know soon!

y don't u buy dat fone ur saying?? and flashlight??? c'mon.. y don't u buy a real portable flashlight?? DUH!!!! cellphones are for u 2 communicate, not 4 u to flash some light on!! that's ridiculous!!!
and guys! if u want a good camera, y don't u buy a digital camera that has 10 mpx??? that's just common sense!!
Am I the only one that has been thinking like this:
If the N80 comes out and takes only mediocre pics in 3 mpx. Then why not just put the size to 2 mpx? Seriously, do you really need 3mpx pics?
I'm sure that the pics will look much better in 2mpx instead of 3mpx.
Oh and you can find some realllly nice pics of the N80 here. It's a really nice looking fone.

The camera quality for this phone is as clear as you would expect any decent camera phone. I have seen pictures taken from the N80 and they are very good, however if you are looking for top quality pictures how bout u go buy urself a proper 10 megapixel digital camera. I am perfectly happy with the camera quality of the N80.
When this phone is released it will have more features than ANY other mobile phone. You cannot expect a phone with this many features to have a very long battery life. Why don't you buy yourself a 3310 if you like a nice week or two without charging your fone. The problem is, all you can do with a 3310 is call and txt.
If you buy the N80 you have to be prepared to charge it everyday, but then, whats wrong with putting it on charge before you go to sleep every night. it's not that hard and with the amount of features you get from the N80 im sure most people would be prepared to do that :)
