@Xmas-BL-6C is Thicker than BL-5B, BL-5B is 5.3mm and BL-6C is 6.25 mm, BL-6C is the same battery used in N-GAGE ,E70 etc. no problem for N80 i get about 26% more talktime i played mp3 in offline mode to check peroformance of both BL-5B and BL-6c ,BL-6C just performed as i thought 1.5 hr extra playback than BL-5B.
I recommand this phone to enny symbian fan
i never heard music as loud and clear from a symbian phone till i hit 3rd edition + it playes mp4 and wma .NEW NOKIA PHONES COME WITH YHE BEST STEREO HEDSETS EVER
videos are not as good as a n73 or n93 ,WAY better then 2 mp !!the picture quality are impressive to .
There are 2 things missing :battery life and pdf support
and one thing i dounpt like
is that the red button closes the application or game you are viewing (using)
it minimises only when you press on the symbian menu button. unlike the 6680 or 82 it just minimises it .
on a call sliding it down will disconnect the conversation
you have to close it before the person awnsors
the ADVANTAGE is the web browser prossesor and the multy-task capacity is more powerfull ,it's 3rd edition
Thanks Mobile Ace. So I guess both BL-5B and BL-6C are of the same size then?
Also, anyone has any updates on the firmware? Previous rumour mentioned that Nokia is going to release a software update online for us so we just have to go to the website and do it ourselves. But I do'nt see it happening yet.
Battery life sucks. Surely the BL-6C is too long to fit in the space meant for a BL-5B?
i've use this phone for about a month now. GREAT phone. i've also got it syncronized with my outlook of about 900 contacts or so. now, my BIG problem, i cant recall ALL of my contact. some i remember them by name, some company name. so how do i search by company name IF i've forgotten them by their name? in pocket pc, u can list them by company, name etc etc. does nokia has this function? ... or maybe by a 3rd party developer?
this phone is excellent, i just got it yesterday and its kinda big and but the feat. are excellent camera quality is also good, i had a k750i and thats nothing compared to the n80
Great phone this, might buy one but tempted to wait for the N95 - this phone looks poor in comparison to that thing!!
Yes you did Mobile Ace... but only you... I want to know if there's someone else...
i've posted lots of time saying that N80 supports BL-5C , i am using it no problem at all.
@xmas: i am using BL-6C battery from past 2 months with no problem at all i get 26% more talktime then poor BL-5B i just thrown away BL-5B it sucks
hi,i have n80.i have an opinion to working with camera.first go in user setting and then image sharpness then change in hard and image contrast do 2 level up,in the other word images performance 1.5 was best than before.and this matter in uper your image k.b from 800k to 1/8 mb sees.i hoper have good end with my opinion.bye
i have it...it simply rockssssssssss! i just wish it was a bit faster but its still fyn..peace
Has anyone else tried out the BL-6C yet, if so, any feedback? is it fully compatible?
i heard that messaging isn't that great. for those of u who uses N80, how's the messaging?
Well, I got this phone brand new in May and today I'm taking delivery of my FOURTH handset! The phone has fabuolous features but is the most unreliable and problem riddled thing I have ever used. It's devastating because it really is a wonderful piece of kit. I have this phone on Orange in the UK and the problems with it are so bad that Orange have actually discontinued it and it is no longer available for upgrade on their network! I know many other people who have this phone on different networks and have some problems but nowhere near the amount that Orange do. Orange themselves have told me that they believe their software is incompatible with Nokias, hence all the problems. They've also told me that they will not be releasing any other N series smartphones from Nokia. Both the N91 and the N73 have been shelved by Orange. When I first got this phone, the first one broke after 6 days, constantly switching itself off and then the 'hang up key' (red button) gave up and I couldn't end a call without switching the phone off. Phone number 2 did well until the microphone packed up and nobody could hear me. Phone number 3 has started freezing so badly that even taking the battery out doesn't solve the problem because as soon as the battery is back in and switched on, all I get is the now famous 'Nokia White Screen Of Death'! and it fails to get any further. My husband has the Sony Ericsson K800i and it's a fabulous phone which hasn't given him a monents trouble. I'd even go so far as to say that the camera in the K800 is superior to that of the N80, the flash is miles better too. Another fault that Number 3 has is that it won't open all the photo's in the gallery. You can see the pic in miniature but when you click on it to maximise it to full screen, it vanishes and turns into a little blue square with a sailing boat in it! Very strange. I've always loved Nokias but I'm thinking if I stay with Orange I shall have to change my brand of phone or if I stay with Nokia I shall have to go to Vodafone which I really don't want to do. If only Nokia and Orange could sort their problems out . . . .
@kyan: yah N80 is slow beacuse of it high 352x416 pixel display and 262 k color the processor has to produce such high pixels
and has to generate 262k colors thats why nokia dont put that display in n73 and n95 it eats battery, try to free ur phone memory as possible
keep all ur pics videos songs and sms on memory card the more the free phone memory the more the device runs fasts,and dont leave the appilication running when not in use. it will help u to boost the speed. if problem presists format ur phone *#7370#.
