i have just bought the nokia n80 and so far i am happy with this model i payed a sum of £550 i have a sim free model.One thing i am not happy with is the battery life i previously had a sony ericsson s700i and the battery on the would last for a very long time compared to the n80. a good thing about the n80 which i like is the web browser and the wireless feauture because i have a router in my house so i go online whenever i want. another great thing about the phone is its camera it has a 3.15mp camera here is a link to one of the pictures i have taken with the camera http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y128/pourhana/09082006159.jpg
Interesting study about talktime :
Bought the N80 ....expecting a lot. Don't know if my piece was bad or what, but...never again ! The slider was useless, the signal inside the house was minimal and last but not the least...it is horribly expensive. forgot to mention that it hanged a few times also. Not worth the dough at all. Would recomend the nokia 6630 over it.... The good points.... very small, fits in the hand/pocket well. call quality v.good...and ofcourse the usual nokia ease.
have d/loaded to my comp 60 themes but only 47 have gone on the fone so not all work & also alot of .jar files are rejected by my n80..As far as the camera most of them are not good & the more megapixels they introduce the worst things are getting...Most of my best shots came from the sharp gx30 wich is now my dads & my s/e w900i.Their is so much in symbian that i want & thats why im not using my w900i...Symbian has to be taking into consideration for a lot of people so in general if you want a cam phone only,," dont" buy yourself a seperate cam & phone.I read the report at newmobile .com which is wat i use to get video resolution specs etc & not impressed by any of them truthfully none of them give a good crisp clean shot.It always goes to prove that its not the m/pixel count but the lens & software & good lighting that makes a good photo..Mines going great at nearl 2 months of having it just charge it every nite
Have you read this review?
This phone is very satisfying, the battery life is not good but still ok, i'm a heavy user talking 6-7 hrs per day and i only have to change the battery once per day, reception is great, camera is more than expectation, altho not as good when it's dark, but still very good, and people keeping saying K800, but to be honest k800 really disappoints me, the 3.2 cyber shot camera really sucks. wi-fi works great browser is best on cell phone i've ever seen, buttons are great for sms, OS is fast, at least way faster than N70. size is not that bad, fit good in pocket, slider is solid, well just very hard to find anything bad about it after i used it for 3 months, this cell really worth it's price tag
Does the N80 allow you to use double digit speed dialing? For example: dialing 2 numbers such as 12 then pressing "SEND" to call one of your contacts?
Kuck karo NOKIA do something please
I can't read all this massages about this lovely phone....
I am now on the third N80 I have been given. They have all suffered form the same problem, including the latest 'third' one I have now. In essence, as far as being a phone is concerned, it is without doubt the worst phone I have ever had. I have always supported Nokia, and bought their phones, but this experience has put a great deal of doubt in my mind about their technology. I am in the UK and on o2, and the phone will loose reception on a random basis, and all three have been the same, yet when I transfer the sim card back to my trusted 6310i, I have excellent reception, with no dropped calls or reception. All the other features of the phone are great, and work well, but the fact it doesnt work well as a 'phone' is a real problem!! Nokia claim that they dont have a problem with it, yet the o2 shop I bought it from told me 'they have had loads back!!' As for me, I need to look for another phone with the same features that also works as a phone - and guess what, I dont think it will be another Nokia.

Im having big troubles installing themes to my new N80,It says installations of SIS. file is not supported!! Could you plz help me resolving this?
All the best
Just got my N80 this morning :-)
have ordered myself a 2 gig card
brilliant screen on it, much better than my Faulty N91`s
will try the music out later with the headfones
my firmware with this O2 handset is as follows
NOKIA N80 (33.01)
Is this the latest firmware for 02 handsets in the UK
or do i need to take it to get it updated?
it's the best phone i've bought so far. very handy with the memos meetings right on the main screen..
i've own it for 3months now.. the big problem is that when i use new themes and turn the phone off, i turn it on again it changes to the original nokia theme. i've had several restarts.. and maybe the cache size isnot that big... and oh there was a time when i was browsing, the colours on the screen started moving, as in distorted. totally freaked me out.
but all in all I LOVE N80 :)
i've uploaded some essential softwares for N80 like autolock etc...
hope its helpful for few...
I definately agree with you . The N80 looks great and the features packed with this phone are simply outstanding . Ive been in two minds to buy this phone as ive always used SE , nd using p900 now . But all you ppl who are confused , jus take the plunge . N80 is worth the buy .
to those ppl who talk about n83, i can be 100% sure this phone will not be released until the end of 2008, so guys let's forget about it at this moment
@Adam There is no SE phone (nor Samsung or Motorola for that matter) which come anywhere close to the N80 featurewise. Yes you got the Sharp 903 (best pictures) Tytn (best OS - windows compatibility and most programs) K750i or similar (very small and handy) but the N80 is everything in one device. Try using your local WIFI network from a k800 and you'll see what I mean. Or try configure the D600 etc. as a pocked full blown internet server over a fast and fairly cheap EDGE network. You complain about the size but in reality is only marginaly bigger then a k800 and it has functions galore which blows away any Samsung, Sharp, SE or Motorola. Look at the screen quality and try to think unbiased ! I don't care if is made by Nokia or the Russians or Americans or Osama bin Ladden or who ever. If is the best in its class then is the best :)
