Well i must say this, yes, nokia's are overrated today but that does not mean it has to be for this fone. All the specs look good, but nokia seems to release these fones really late. Another problem is the size of this. It's already quite bulky in width, but for a slider it's ok in depth. The sliding mechanisms are not great over time, but future fones will be much better. A 3 mpx Camera isn't much use either, as 1 mpx is extremely clear for a camerafone, and not too bad on a computer screen,(i myself have a 2mpx camerafone), and the video quality isn't any better than the current samsungs(D500, D600).The biggest problem however, is if this does ever get released, another sony erricson or motorola, or even a samsung will be built and released earlier to take the bait. Plus nokia will price this way too high. Just look at the current Nokia N series, which has already been beaten by the sony ericcson K750i which was released cheaper 5-6 months earlier. All this aside, this phone is absolutely fantastic, but is definitely not going to be worth it when, or if it does come out. I think nokia has lost it since it became a market leader back when the LEGENDARY 3310 was making very good profits.
I would say, this phone is a very power full phone but i still having doubts of getting this phone. The reason is:-
1. It's only a 262k colour phone. A taiwanese phone advertising in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has 16 million colours. Also, one of the E series also contain 16m colours.
2. I't a series 60. I'm use to the series 40 phone.
3. Polyphonic is only 48 channels. Others is 64 channels.
4. No wallet features.
5. No flash light (essential feature)
OK that's enough. This phone is not as good as I've expected. I shall then wait for a better phone while I'm keeping my old N5130.
This is the most Over-Rated Nokia Ever.
I personally don't see the hype about it. For the record: Battery Life "does" Matter & it has the lowest battery life of the upcoming Nokia Models.
Aside from this, It has the "Worst" build quality & ergonomics (note: buttons are too depressed & top buttons don't have enough allowance)of Upcoming Nokias that's why a high price is unwaranted.
It's features are not enough to overshadow its flaws. It is a mediocre media device (compared to the N92) & a mediocre business aide (compared to the E70).
I will prefer N92 or E70 anyday.....even if their eventual price is much higher.
This phones is going to be so expensive when it comes out.. at least its one of the 1st high rated phone that's goin to come out here in the US.. which means if you get this phone you get a warranty with nokia and support!! isn't that cool.. i mean im tired of getting european nokia phones and i don't get any support here in the US.. they always tell me to call europe. grrr.. nweis i hope this phone is FINLAND!! i will get this phone.. but i will wait till it reach the price of at leas $450.. rumors tells me this phone is going to be $1000 when it comes out.. so i guess im looking for about 6 months after it comes out.. besides i just recently bought me a 6270.. let me enjoy this for a while..
Apart form battery life, stuff all of that crap, this phone has better features that Nokia N92 although would be nice if it had DVB to recieve freeview etc!
First of all, this phone isn't perfect. Secondly, it isn't the best.
-Poor ergonomics (123 buttons don't have sufficient allowance from the lower portion of the top slidder)
-Poor battey life (compare this to other phones currently around)
-Slidders have notoriouslly fragile internal mechanisms that break over time due to the repeated "sliding" motion when opening/closing the phone (so bar phones or clamshell phones are still better & last longer)
-according to softepedia.com: N92 is the best Upcoming Nokia
-according to symplification.com: E70 is the best Symbian-Based Nokia Phone
For the record: this isn't one of the best Nokia's (Nokia can do better-e.g. future N81 probably)
okay first of all this is a superb phone, so all those people who don't like this phone and just want to annoy us ,leave, oh and before i forget Karren Smith i don't know what tastes you have but can't you see that almost all of us agree that the n80 is great?
Can we use the wifi of the N80 to can look webs in the laptop? or only in the mobil phone?
can anyone tell me that can using a higher life battery increase the talk time of the phone???
plz do reply
Abey maadarchod,how can u guys write about phones which have not even been released??????You all are liers who don't know any facts and just want to boast that u know everything.
Ohh I want this phone, it's a very good and beautiful phone with many features. It's camera looks pretty neat and the WiFi is also very handy. I will be waiting for it's launch. I don't think that anyone knows when this phone exactly will be launched?
Will be this phone the first nokia with FOTA (Firmware upgrade Over The Air)?? HTC phones have this kind a feature long time ago!! h**p://s60.com/?action=showPage&c_id=9&pbId=133
Can somebody clarify this?? :D
this phone is awesome!! i couldnt figure out wether or not you could wathch full length movies on the phone, someone please answer!!
As usual with Nokia, don't hold your breath till thisphone will be out, because it will be in a very looooooooong time.....
This fones much better than the D600, has a lot better specifications and also it looks better! I could have got a D600 4 Xmas but i chose to wait for this fone to come out :p
All i want is the best Smartphone on the market, not a Cameraphone... Get it!! For all you that want a Cameraphone , i think you should try another forum!!!
N80 Phone is EGPRS Class 11 (236,8Kbps/118,4Kbps), need to modify this, everyone does the mistake :)
(viewed on nokia Nseries website)
I totally agree. This is a wonderful website that helps users figure out what their best bet is for getting a phone. Yeah, some of the arguments on the posts are a bit "nerdy," but it's all for a good cause. It's obvious our TRAINO friend has no concept of what a board is. Also TRAINO, if you come back on the board to see this post, you I'm sorry are extremely hypocritical. So let's all have a drink for our new friend...CHEERS TRAINO
