Great phone, feature-wise. The camera is sub-par for a 3 meg camera, but ok for a camera phone. Wifi & bluetooth works great.
The slider mechanism could be better though in the unit that I got. It slides ajar from closed position at the slightest pressure, and there's side to side play, and the battery cover is not solidly flush and creaks when I type on the keypad.
Why didn't nokia just put wifi on the N73, i would have bought that.
The battery life is the worst thing about this phone, I would recommend people get the N73 instead (double the battery life) unless you really really need WiFi that badly.
Also the build quality seems a bit suspect, the battery cover on mine is slightly loose and the slide mechanism doesnt have a spring so makes it too easy to open especially when its your pocket.
I had the same problem with my N80 freezing on me when either sending or receiving texts..I got the phone via a free upgrade from an O2 shop so took it back there for a software upgrade(To check, on standby, type *#0000# and the latest version should should be:
Mine had the old version and they said 5-10 working days.
Got it back yday and the phone is still just as bad with no upgrade either
Phoned O2 direct and they are dispatching a new as we speak...
So my suggestion, call your cust service and demand a new one! Hopefully, my old phone is just a dodgy one but will keep you posted..otherwise, I'll get the N73!

I love this phone. I am going to buy it in this week. Just I wanted to know that if I click, should I still hold the cellphone or it takes the picture immediatly. All nokia phones have this problem.
Hi,i'm using my N80 for more then a week,it is a great phone i must say.My phone loaded with firmware V3.0617.0.6 and it does not have PDF reader as in the V4.and i do not find the video editor in my phone either.So,when i talked to my local service center regarding upgrading the firmware,they said my phone can be "SIM lock" if tried to do so since it is from EU(I'm in Malaysia now) I'm using the phone with a local Malaysian GSM SIM card.So... is there any one can tell me what should I do or just look for 3rd party sofeware? and how to tell the phone is "open" or "lock" to the country of origin? Thanks.
This phone is better than the N73 AND the N91. And for all the samsung phones: It's not just in the looks - it's in the brooks. So N80 is the winner once again !
please tell me that does this fone support making free calls via WiFi as we do with the 6136 ???
does anyone knows where i can get a navigater or map24 to download for the nokia n80 plzzzzzzzz...
It is a wonder in this universe of mobile you can't believe untill you use it. The best set I have used till date.
I'm interested to buy a new mobile. I must choose between Nokia N91 N80 & N73? Which of this mobiles is the best? From beginning i must say some word about me and about what i want. I'm 18 and I need a mobile to use it as a portable player and i'm very attracted to use my phone as a PC, to install programs, games...and other things for smartphone. Camera is another important thing that i need from my mobile. Is big difference between Nokia N91 and n80, N73? to make photos with resolution of 1600 X 1200? All this 3 mobiles have the same resolution of video recordings CIF(352 x 288 pixels) and the same clarity? or is any difference between video on Nokia n91 and N80, N73? Which of this 3 mobile have the louder sound on speaker? I was using for one day a Nokia n73 and the sound was verry cool. Nokia N91 have a louder sound on speaker than Nokia N73? or the 3D sound on N73 make the difference? Is there any problem with display on N91 because is just 208 X 176 pixels the resolution? Help me to choose one of this 3 mobiles and tell me wich is the best for me. I want to know main disadvantages of Nokia N80 in comparation with N73 & N91.
to taz /// wi-fi is hardware & therefore has to be built into the fone itself..In some smartfones they have an SD I/O slot wich means not only will it take a memory card but will take a wi-fi or bluetooth dongle type thingy to give the fone the application but these seem to be windows smartphones. To person having trouble sending sms via singular (im in uk)some fones actually do not work on certain networks because here in uk some nokias were failing to work on our O2 network because of their settings & they could not find a solution for that..I know wat your on about it took me a while on my n6630 to send & recieve mms & i checked everything over & over again & it come up sending failed --sending qued--not sent,,but was lucky tho as the network i was on supported the said fone & downloaded the setting over the air.I will look thru my n80 to see if its something else because voice & text usually work straight away these days.Got a samsung d900 saturday & its really good,,the screen put on its lowest brightness setting is the same as the n80 on full power + i must start selling some of my fones as ive got to many !!!!
Does anyone know if this phone has a stopwatch and countdown timer? I can't seem to find it within the phone. Is it possible to download such software? Also, is there a way to turn off the camera shutter sound?
I am looking for software to record internet radio station (Icecast technology). I need to schedule time on/off recording.
this phone is amazing, absoultly fantastic you dont know what you can do untill you get this phone!!!! im in love
been havin this phone for about a month now. still my best choice. everything you ever needed is in this piece of elegant slide phone. Pros: VERY CLEAR SCREEN! stylish, great sound from the media player, 3 mpx. very user-friendly. cons: "finger-printy" frame set, no auto-focus cam, lack of multi-tasking ability. works one application in the background and open a new appplication, the next thing you know is that the previous old application has "miraculously disappeared". the wifi works bad, if the phone doesn't pick up a full strength wifi signal, it won't load a page in the browser. i would recommend ya'll out there to buy n73 if ya looking for the best phone in town.
