However i am pissed off that you can't get hold of the Nokia N80 as this looks like an amazing phone compared to the Nokia 6280 or the N70. Check it out at http://www.nokia.com/nseries/index.html
look at the spec on the N80 it kicks the arse out of the 6280 and the N70! However still loving the 6280
The Nokia 6280 is an awesome phone, i got it as a free upgrade from 3 with no hassle. Next day delivery cost me NOTHING. Also 12 month contract with first 3 months half price. People always slag off 3 but ive had no problems with them. Awesome phone, camera is brilliant, video quality is amazing and you can change the resolution.Only bad point's ive noticed is the more pics you take the slower it takes to open the pics on the memory card, which could be interesting if you can put a 2gig card in it as its only got a 64mb card in it now!Also i dont like the volume button it doensn't feel very sturdy and the screen gets dust under it after no time at all.Overall i think its a brillian phone tho.
Since u made a comparison of 6280 and N70, i would like to know which of the 2 phones had a better picture quality in terms of camera and Video.
Spoke to 02 on friday and the 6280 wont be released with them till mid march, also called vodafone and they say 1st march, im so glad i opted for the 6270 as reading the reviews so far the 6280 is not performing too good and i have no issues at all with the 6270 which has tiny differances to the 6280 but nothing that bothers me.
The video quality is not as good as the N70 because it records in mpeg4 format ang the 6280 in 3gp format.
I all. I've had this phone for a week so far. its probably the most unreliable phone i have ever owned.
although the features are very good, and the series 40 is easy to use - my phone seems to be restarting itslef whenver it feels like it! around 3-5 times a day and beleive me its very annoying.
Does anyone know where i can get a firmware update? currently running V3.36
This phone is available now but only on 3. How hard is that to understand? Vodafone are really annoying. Was speaking to one of there guys and i asked him to give me a rough estimation of when it will be released, was kinda like the guy from little britain getting an answer off him! " computer says nooooooo" grrrrrrr
its the best phone i hav ever seen..but i have problems with installing softwares on it ..can any one advise me on this
by the way.... this phone is awesome... didn't you recongnize the video resolution ??? it's a vga video (i thaught it was a mistake on gsmarena !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is magnificant...i still didn't see any phone with this resolution... even the digital sony cybershot have got vga resolution !!!
Well, I compared side to side the Nokia 6280 and N70 ... and I decided to go with the N70!
The slide on the 6280 was disappointing, and there are a lot more features on the N70.
Can I install any sat nav software on this phone cuz if not it is going back, any help please, otherwise good phone.
it is the worst phone that nokia has ever come up with till date iam a die hard nokia fan but haven't seen such a filthy h/s with so many software issues people dont buy this handset for gods sake.............
This mobile should have been released on the other networks better than the "3" network if you buy mobiles off them you can"t get them unlocked because they put there own software on them an nobody can get them unlocked please get this mobile out Quick Nokia or i will stop buying you mobiles your going to lose your buyers an lose your number 1 spot soon,please get auto focus put on your mobile cameras as well
I'm getting a bit fed up of people saying that this phone is 'out' in the UK.
Okay, so apparently 3 are offering it on new contracts now, but the fact that all the other networks are still fobbing us off with random release dates (including my own) clearly shows that this is phone is far from being 'available'.
I don't see why I should have to change network just to acquire one.
The fact is Nokia have messed up big time with this. They should never have promised a release date of Q4 2005. I know that these things can be delayed, but literally years are spent developing these products and there really is no excuse.
My loyalty to Nokia as a brand has all but disappeared. Like many others here I feel cheated.
If this phone is 'out', try finding one in the high street. Other than 3 it can't be done...
Sunday morning rant over! Too sunny out there to be sat here doing this!
how come a lot of UK ppl over here?
UK already released the phone, y everyone stil guessing when it wil come out? my god..check clearly pls
where is your source? how do you know it will be delayed until the end of march?
phone is now delayed in UK until end of March - was due to be 1st of Feb - then 27th Feb - now it is delayed until end of March 2006
I have given up waiting for this phone - it will be a year it has taken since appearing on the nokia website as comign soon back in spring of 2005
You state the Nokia 6280 is a worthy loser to phones like the d600 an k750. I'm trying to say that's maybe true in the eyes of the reviewer but not in mine. I do not care, for EXAMPLE, for the quality of pictures it takes. For that, i've got a camera. But I do care for design and let's be honoust, nobody can design a phone better then Nokia.
For that matter I owned the SE w800 but it was really not what I was looking for in a phone. Now i'm waiting patiently to get my own 6280..
