hi.well, i`ve been waiting for this phone for a long time.got one for me and one for my girl.she loves the design,i also quitre like it.but phone opens in her hand bag,as well as it does in my pocket, which isn`t any good.when it comes to funcionality it`s worse than 6630/6680.3rd edition of symbian means not much software yet,battery is RUBBISH (if u use phone every day dont forget to charge it every night!!!)another thing, forget about useing BL-5C battery in N80.it won`t fit.N80`s battery is smaller!!!wifi works fine, but nokia didnt put any software to make setting up process simpler so it takes time to set it up in this phone.unless you get hotspot finder from psiloc.com @15£ (you can get it for free from seme websites thou)i also use i-mate jasjar.going online thru wifi is as easy as it is on my laptop.limited number of languages is another disadvantage.hard to write without T9.as soon as any SE (smaller than se p990i) with wifi comes out i`m selling n80.i use nokias since 1996 and i think it is time for a change.i`ll try E60 soon, and if it`s not any good,sorry nokia.you are the weakest link...good bye...
if some one could put wifi, 3g, and colour screen in 6310i, i`d pay almost any money to get it done.that would be propably the best phone on the world...
Hi, I’m really interested in buying N80, I cannot wait to do so, because I have N70 now; I’m worried about a couple of things:
1. Speed of the phone as the N70 is a little bit slow (and specially that I’m thinking of getting a 2GB Memory Card).
2. First row of keypad and it’s being narrow (not friendly to send messages).
Can some one who used it answer me, thanks.

I have a nokia black n80 for about 2 weeks and its great!Its camera is fantastic,you can see every detail and i make pretty good photos in the night at a far distance!I had a nokia n90 and a nokia 6280 because im a big fan of nokia and this is the best nokia phone!The sound quality is very good too!I reccomand it too anyone that wants a good phone!I dont know why you reccomand the Sony Ericsson because You cany compare a nokia with a SE!
I can't understand all these negative comments about this phone.
Build quality is outstanding and the slider is as solid as a rock. The video OMG it's just fantastic, so crystal clear even in poor light and the battery lasts 3-4 days even with plenty of action.
I have now bought another N80, I'ts cost me lots but this is the best phone I have ever used.
I wouldn't mess around with the firmware as the original one IS THE BEST. I have not had a problem.
Trailblaser, I am only 12 and have a low IQ due to a birth defect.
There are 4 shutter sound available when taking picture.... there is no way to off the shutter sound
guys plz tell me hows the sound quality frm the phone loudspeaker as compared to n91 and n70 and frm the supplied earphones as compared to n91 and ipod.
i cant wait anymore.
Is that release date on O2 for upgrade or new contract, or both?
I was thinking of starting a new contract with O2 in July and getting an N80. Hopefully it will be available by then. I was holding out for the N71 but I don't think that phone will ever get released on any network.
If i didn't need 350+ txts a month, i would not be waiting on O2 direct. Its hard to get contract with so many free txts otherwise.
hey every1 , please feel free to email me with ur questions and what not, seriously nethin u want I can help u with,,, btw ppl askin bout the 2Gb card, yes it does work on the N80, althought fone tends to slow down just a bit, its not bad but still. Neway 7610 and 6600, use BL5C this doesnt so how can u put it in?
I left O2 direct cause they kept putting the release date back, Im now on O2 through the carphonewarehouse so i get to keep the same number & stay on O2 & was also able to get the Black N80 Which O2 are not doing (they are only doing it in silver), ordered the phone on friday & it turned up on saturday!
Couldnt be arsed to hang around waiting for O2 to put a welcome screen & some crap wallpapers on their phones!
N80 Back dated to 16th of June on O2!!!!
Just got off the phone to O2 direct, through the upgrade number. Only to be told its been back dated to the 16th of June! Great. Maybe i should just go back to orange!!!!!!!!!
I want to say some thing about review. it's so great that GSMArena makes it's own review not just translate other site(***.cz) reviews. it's a great job.
Finally got my Black Nokia N80, Loving it so far, Charged it up on saturday & its only used one block of battery power (have set network to GSM Only & set the Wi-Fi to Never).
Just ordered a 2GB Scandisk Ultra Mini SD memory card, does anyone know if it will work in the N80? Nokia say it only supports 1Gb cards but i have read reviews about people using 2Gb cards, anyone got any advise?
Also when upgrading the Firmware can someone tell me if it wipes the memory of the phone (shall i back up everything before-hand) or does it just upgrade the firmware?
Cheers to anyone who helps me!
P.S. I don't understand why people keep slagging this phone off, im really pleased with it so far!!!
To US Cingular blu/orange gsm users:
Can anyone explain to me what the difference is between a ATT Sim card and a Cingular Sim card and if a sim card has anything to do with the signal strength. Thanks for the infos.
is this phone ever gonna be rellesed or is this gonna be another Sony Ericsson P990i, i've been waiting 3months for this phone!!
Anyone here know's where i can download the Firmware, my phone version is 3.0614.0.3.
Please tell me where i can dowload the latest and branded one.
