ive had to take mine back ive praised it but the video filming in good light indoors is like playing a vhs video tape & the heads need cleaning & the battery life was getting worse.the fone is great its just was not for me & i did persevere & try all settings provided.Am now looking at n93 & thats all i have to say
To the guy who went to the chicago flasghip store and thinks the N80 with headphones will sound great - think again. The n80 sounds just like all the other Nokia S60 phones - "okay". The N91, the only one with the new Audio chip is the one that blows away IPOD, SE etc if you love music then the N91 is the one
just received my nokia n80 yesterday one word for this phone excellent also it has one of the best displays ive ever seen on a phone its crystal clear.also its not that big the phone itself just right.the keypad is wicked the buttons are easy to press which i like.overall il give it 10 out of 10.
Dude, are you serious 'bout the camera?
Example pics of the Nokia's N80 3 megapixels camera:
-Full resolution pics (click "download"):
-1.3 megapixel pics using the sport mode and some changes in the bars (again, click the download link):
does any of you kno if there will be any problem with sliding part of N80???
What is so good about the SE K800i? Alright I have to admit that the battery life and camera are much better than N80 yet but totally hopeless cause it is not a Symbian phone and SE K800i do not even have the WiFi. Each phone have its pros and cons. If I would like to take to compare with another phone, I will pick SE 990i than SE K800i. Sugesstion anyone?
pmpl, iv had nokia phones for the past 6 years (3210, 8210, 8310, 8850, 6100, 7250, 7250i, 6230, 7610, 6630, 6680, n70 and now n80 and iv NEVER had a fault with any of them! was just bad luck dude thats all, u just got a BAD fone and so did ur gf, not nokias fault!
All the N80 lacks is still camera quality and battery life. K800 has much better battery life and camera. But the N80 is a far superiour phone than the k800! Why do nokia do this to us.
Nokia get a grip and sort it out so u dont have these little immature Sony fans talking trash.
Hope this is a simplified comment.
your family just have bad luck dude!
nokia are more reliable than the other brands, motorola, sony ericsson and samsung, i see people in my country still using 6200 o 6100, 3100, and the list keeps going on, really old phones, working as new and people who bought v600 t610 getting their second, third handset because theirs broke.
Last March, I purchased a Nokia 6670. Within a period of 18 months, it broke down 6 times. Whenever I pay a visit to the service center, it is always crowded. This actually says a lot about the product. By the way, if you are considering a mobile phone, do visit the relevant service centers first. You should go for the brand whose service centers are usually empty.
Anyway, apart from the long queues, Nokia also does not have a policy to loan a replacement set when your phone is retained for repair. You are EXPECTED to own a second phone. In February when the warranty was about to expire, I insisted on an extension of the warranty period as a result of the frequent breakdown. I was granted 3 month’s extension.
The last repair done to my 6670 was in April (within the extended warranty period) when a whole new motherboard was installed. That means I practically have a new phone. However, it broke down again in less than 2 months. I visited the service centre on 12th July, waited for over 30 minutes only to be told that I may have to pay for the repair. Naturally I refused because the newly installed motherboard was less than 2 months old. The center manager then refused to accept my phone and very reluctantly provided me with the address of the HQ Office.
Thinking that the HQ would be more sympathetic, I visited them the very next day. To my disappointment, the reply I got was something like this: “We are sorry but we have already extended your warranty period before. You will have to pay for the repair this time round……. Just like any other electronic goods, mobile phones do break down too…..” It is interesting to note that none of the other electronic appliances/equipment I have has broken down since I bought them 6 years ago.
My wife bought a Nokia 3320 last year too. Similarly, it has broken down a number of times within the warranty period. In one household where there are 2 Nokia owners, both had encountered difficulties with the product. We have both switched to Sony Ericsson, and guess which brand we WILL NOT be recommending to our friends?
When I invest in a mobile phone, I expect it to work like any good investment. We are not talking about a space shuttle here but just a simple mobile phone. I am really not interested in a long warranty period because each time I have to send my phone in for repair, it is very inconvenient, not to mention the time and cost in the traveling involved. Obviously Nokia does not appreciate that. They seem to be concerned only with selling their poor product and then offering even poorer after sales service subsequently.
