it works like a laptop.
ive tried it several times in a gas station and the wifi is coming from inside the convinient store and im outside the parking lot and i can surf with good signal.
wifi in N80 is 802.11g so it has good signal range
Thanks for the replies guys. Also, I was wondering about places like the airport or starbucks? I am having second thoughts about the phone..lol...but it is still a good phone in my mind.
but if you have a wireless roughter in ur house its good. if u live in a flat your can assess it anywhere in the house. ive been to people house and they have a wireless roughter upstair and im down stair and it dont work.
One of the biggest reasons I want to buy the N80 is its Wifi capabality. Can people tell me how good it actually is? Is it good like laptops or do you really have to be in close range? Any comments on it would be greatly appreciated (I did read the comment on wifi by buns but I would like more input).
yes the screen is solid. good construction and stable. no issues on it, no dead pixel, no distortion or whatsoever.
and as added information, i went to Nokia Care center earlier to ask about the slider tightness. they checked my unit and said the tightness is just right and its not adviseable to adjust or to make it "really really tight" because it will squeeze the flex cable between the 'screen body part' and the 'keypad body part'. if that happens you'll experience problem on the screen like blurry or maybe distorted display. that is why Nokia made the slider with just the right tightness.
i was also informed that in case the slider gets very loose, they will adjust it back to original tightness like it was brandnew... but they told me not to worry as N80 is not a frequent Nokia model being checked in for repair in their center by their customers. they seldom receive N80 complaints.
and i know the technician who told me that is honest because i used to own a different Nokia model before and i had it check with him as well and he told me before that my old Nokia model really has issues. so he always tells me if a model is a good one or not.
which made me happy for my N80 =)
Just make a firmware upgrade via Nokia phone software update.
Or take it to a Nokia sercice center!

can we download/put special apps. (like the 6630 can) into this fon? themes, IM systems. tell me asap pls :D
n73 video recording is better-if you owned a n70 it's the same as that for v.r.The sound is also better than the n80.Wi-fi although it is b and g loses connection v easily,7metres from router/access point and that's it,N91 wi-fi chip is superior.The N80 does look good but if people would take a reality check they would see this handset for what it is!The collective features of the n73,80,91 should have been put on one device.Nokia take note-serious smartphone users will abandon s60 unless you improve.
Why my N80 video recording is not clear,when recording at night and inside house,is that n73 video recording is same?For N80 and N73 which speaker is better? i like to hear song which is good,n80 or n73?TQ
i wanted to buy this phone for so long,..but recently,..my fren told me that this phone is not really good...the wifi must connect via bluetooth,is it??? the message takes long time to send out, is it?? the phone colour is easily drop by a little scratch???really???pls help..
There's nothing called "better" between N80 and N73. ts just a matter of taste. If you like autofocus,labelled camera then go for N73 but if u want WiFi and a slide version then go for N80. Both are good but personally i like the N80 because of its design. N73 seems very cheap by its look. Not that stylish like N80.
okay Owen :) Do you think the N80's screen is very solid? Whats your opinion?
