I just got the phone yesterday, and i really like it. The camera isn't bad - there isn't a lot of difference between 2 and 3.2 megapixel camera's, the most important thing is the lens. Speakers and sound quality are amazing, i like the design, and overall i like the phone alot! Except for the video playback, i tried 2 put a couple of mp4 videos on it, and had 2 try for 2 hours 2 make them right, then found out that it only supports some tipes of mp4... I just converted the videos to 3gp format. Then they worked!

As per me the phone is good! The design is fabulous. I really don know why the camera is just 2MP but its OK. Sound is really good. However i had a bitter experience with the phone. My phone starts working on its own. The music starts playing on its own, key pad had gone etc. I gave the phone to Nokia. They rectified the problem but it again comes. I gave the phone second time to Nokia, now its working fine for the last 10 days. Let hope it continues the same way...:-)

Can any one please help how to configure the mails in it??? I tried it but some how it dosn't work....

to Roamer

wifi on the phone is good, sometimes it could be "slow" because of the connection of the wifi spots, not of the phone, 2mp on a phone is good, megapixels do not determine the quality of a picture, the lens do.

Had this phone for a few days, pretty good. Battery life does not last very long though, listened to music through headphones for about an hour and it goes to about 20% left. but other then that its a really nice phone ;]

Since this is a gaming and music handphone, i love the music quality and all that.

But for the games, i can't find any, except the few demos.
Does anyone knows what model's game it is compatible with? All s60 v3 games?

guys this is a gaming and multimedia phone, not a camera phone. having 2 megapixels camera is not that bad. just get urself a digital camera then if you really want to take superb pictures ^_^ a lot of choices out there!

Why is Nokia going backwards with some of there phones esp N81 2mp camera is poor should have kept N73, but saying that it does have the Wi Fi, which I just tested at good but slow at some Wi Fi free hot spots, it feels like made from cheap plastic, also it comes with too much c*&p with the 2gig card I don't want pictures of strangers on my phone....delete......delete.....delete!!!!!! Look I'm not being too negitive here, it's only I just thought it would be a little better...but?? it is a nice phone speaker is clear, and I like the idea of the 3.5mm phone jack (should be on all multimedia phones)

As I have had the phone only 2 days still learning.

thank god Nokia didn't change the charge plug again which I can charge my 6300 back up phone.....Oh Yes I do have a back up!!! you just never know whe..!!!

In writing this comment my "D" control does not seem to do what it is supposed to like on the video?? NOKIA!!! WTF!!! Nokia if you are reading this please advise!!

Do I like the phone "YES"

Do I like what just happened "NO"
