I'vee been using a P910 for a year (which is the model b4 P990).. It's just too big for everyday use and I find having to use the stylus for many tasks is more time consuiming than pressing a few buttons. Thats goes for gaming aswell. So unless you need advanced PDA functions go for N80.
PS: P990 is going to be a great phone but it's still too big and heavy.
Does anyone know how stable the slider is on this phone? I was trying the 6270 at a store earlier today, and the top just broke off. Is that a typical problem for sliders? Will that be a problem for this phone? I was actually all set to buy this phone until that happened, which made me think twice.
i ordered yesterday night from cpw online a silver n80 as is finally said in stock at that time. got on 02 250 which 35 p/m for 12 months and 25 quid for the n80. at d mo its being processed and should arrive on tuesday.
ordered from orange as well... cant wait to have it by Tuesday. im so excited!!!
Oh btw the stainless steel version is more expensive - but purely based on popularity causing retailers to jack up the price...
The black version is nicer - it stands the test of time. Whereas the silver version looks good at certain angles only when the chrome surface isn't shiny and reflective...
And why are so many people dissing the video recording? I actually find it extremely superior relative to most phones on the market! And for crying out loud it's a mobile phone. If you want a top notch video recorder than go get one! Derrrrrr!
i have a little question in my mind
does n 80 has a same handfree sound like w800i of sony erricson has because i am looking forth to buy this mobile
if it has so plz do mail me and tell me and do teel me that should i buy a nokia n80 or wait for n 93 ??? plz do mail me guys
the n80 has beaten the 6280 to the orange shops. as a new customer i could have one now for £25 or so plus £25 a month contract. as someone whos last bill was nearly £50 and have been with orange since the start i was told "no you cant have one for at least 6 weeks and even then it will be a £250 upgrade fee"
looks like its time to be come a new customer with someone other than orange. i want this phone, i have been waiting a year for something worth buying to appear...
Sorry that is imaging device not multimedia. To bad the Technical Image Press association (TIPA) did not bother to test the camera on this N80. As I said to bad that Nokia's quality control is poor as well. Even more, people spending hard earned cash on a device that does not deliver. Do not get me wrong this N80 is an amazing device.
Hello, I really cannot understand why everyone is getting so excited about this N80. There is one big problem with this so called multimedia device of the year. Video recording is absolutely terrible. In fact terrible is being to soft. I know I had an N80 and tested the device for two days. Conclusion most likely a hardware issue. Here we have Nokia shipping thousands of these faulity phones and no one seems to care. The video fault is apparent in indoor shooting and also noticable in outdoor shots in dark areas. Thank goodness I did not sell my N70 and I returned the N80 and had a full refund. I shall by another when Nokia get off their backsides and fix the problem.
i had my black N80 since last wed
it is so cool
but it is also so expencive
have my n80 for the past one week
i got to comment this
1) i think that the silver/black n80 looks more professional. the pearl black one simply is juz black paint lacquer onto the metal part and a black plastic casing
2) wifi is great as i have tapped into a few area to use it
3) batt life last about 2 days with average usage!!
4) music is simply awesome. once u know how to tune the equalizier, i can say, it is on par on ipod!
5) loudspeaker is so loud that my mum scolded me to blast my phone
6) normal .sis files is not supported but the new .sisx
thats about all!
