sorry 4 e late reply. kinda busy today. rite, u were saying abt e comparison bet n90 n n70. i should say in terms of video quality wise, of course n90 is way better w very smooth flow n very sharp colour rendition as like taking still image, i very impressed w it's excellent quality. like i said, i've not touched a n70 but i believe though e spec of video taking is similar, it's kind of a better appreciation 2 enjoy watching ur video playback in a 4x higher resolution screen (identical 2 n80's) which makes e video output even more astonishing!!!!! as 4 still image wise, both fones' colour rendition n contrast is as good but overall n80 takes better pic (comparable 2 low-end digital cam) regardless of its absence of autofocus. i personally feel autofocus in camfone is redundant unless u've a very shaky focus. e result is well-proven w comparison bet n90 n n80. 1 w auto-focus (bonus w a cz lens), e other w fixed focus, both can similarly do their job well but a louder applause 4 e latter. it's significantly producing sharper, high contrast n vivid colour rendition image better than e crowned camfone. i opinion 2 u is unless u r very urgent 2 get 1 or it's wiser 4 u 2 wait a couple of mths 4 tis little gadget 2 update their software n u r rewarded ur patience w a cheaper good class camfone (w its all other software bugs solved). my advise is NEVER buy pioneer batch of fone especially if it's a symbian smart fone. i learnt my lesson. hopefully my 'long-winded passage' is helpful 2 u. "select wisely, buy wisely, be contented n feel happy."
dus this fone kum with a sd adabter to enable it 2 become normal sd sized cards?
N80 started selling at my country BUT at 1000USD$! i am really shocked! thats alot to spend for a handset,even the reviwe expect less than this crazy price.
few will be it UNless the price goes down to 750$ at least.guess i will go for an I-pod for now and keep my N70 for a while untill i see what this N80 price would be a month from now.
To the guy asking about the availablity in CPW stores, I've been told we're getting more in the warehouse maybe tomorrow, however I have no idea when those will be sent out to store, the more likely answer seems to be that they will only make them available for mail order, so you'll have to go into store and order one on a first come first servce basis!
first i like to say i got the nokia n80 from my telco.superb piece of equipment compare to nokia 7650
after much thinking and basic instinct, i decide to go for the ''not so popular'' silver n80. hehe..
speaking about my testing on the phone, i got to say, i am eagerly waiting for a patch or firmware for nokia n80. coz i got to say, this is my first time in getting a phone rite after the audit is completed for it. so naturally, u will see laggy screens, slower loading time and buggy system and of coz bad video quality.
but why i decide to get it fast is becoz, nokia n80 should be, in my opinion, one of the hottest phone around this year. no other phone can come that close. notice that nokia n80 advertising in terms on the newspaper and tv are exceptionally low. so nokia is very very sure of this product which is a hit from the start.
speaking about the accessories, i got to say it is quite a pleasant set which includes the audio adapter, 128mb card and a surprise voucher for singapore buyer.
simply saying that those people who thinks the nokia n80 is not up to standard is becoz they are comparing nokia n80 to nokia n70 which is an established phone in terms of firmware and softwares as it is a symbian 9.1.
so u can see..once everything falls in place in terms of upgraded firmware and software, i believe nokia n70 will be at least a mile behind in terms of n80.
so those who wants a nokia n80, i think it is a great time to start saving to get it.
and to those who have the phone, we wait for the upgraded firmwares and the software maker to make n80 be like nokia 7650..A Revolutionary Phone!
has anyone got it playing thru the tele yet as thats one of my reasons for buying this model or do you have to buy some extra gadget or have a special tele...altho some samsung models have this batt is really poor but i suppose this one is not much better
I'm really confused after read few comments about the N80,in my opinion,we should give the device a fair judgement,we'd look at the phone from all different aspects not just it's weakness,people sometime just forgot the goodsides of one thing and just pick out the badsides of a subject.Overeall,I think the N80 is a good phone,I pesonal don't use much video function on my mobile phone and very little photo taken(only needed to).The only thing I dislike about the N80 is just the price(Nokia's phones always come with a very high released prices),if price of the N80 is around Usd 550.00 then it'll change lot of people mind.At the end of the day,remember this's just a phone not a video camera or digital camera so don't expect too much...I'd rather like the N80 compare with SE W900/K800/N90/N70 coz asleast it's the look,build quality and feel very good in hand and it's a slider :-)
this is the best fone out. duz n e 1 no wen this fone will be IN the cpw stores in the UK thanks. replies appreciated.
this phone is definetely great!!! ok the video quality is average but its a lot better than many other camera phones and alot better than the long awaited k800 which is still having the ancient video resolution that i have on my W800 and it really sucks:) so there's no point in critisizing one of the best phones available on the market!!! to the w900 owner: N80's camera for sure is better than the w900....!!!!
thanks for the sample video. wow, the video quite sucks compared to videos taken with my w900i. i was thinkin of getting this for an upgrade but i guess i'll just have to save my money and wait for a better replacement instead. guys, you should check our videos taken with the w900. at 30fps, it just makes the n80's video capability seem ancient. it's such a shame though that se k800 is even worse than the n80 video-wise.
i mean to say delaying the sales of n80...and by that time the k800 will be out
The people who are critizing the N80 are all proberly lame SE fans...and who ever came up with the N83 Scam..nokia is after you and will put you behind bars,for making people not to buy the N80 and delaying its purchasing sales for the SE K800
N80 Video Quality....Pretty O.K..a Bit Sticky But Fine!!!
why is it so that in the specifications its mentioned as 3.2 MP.whereas on the mobile its mentioned as 3 MP.Overall the mobile is very good.it has all the features that one would in ones mobile.Good job Nokia.
i wonder people who are stating that the n80's video quality is horrible, didnt even have time to look at the GSMarena review or WHAT?!!!! whats the piont stating false info for the sake of letting people think twice before buying this device!!!!and for definite the picture quality of the N80 will be better than the N70 !!!!!
the battery life is not too bad can last 2 days for using wifi/ radio/calls also not very thick fits nicely into pockets and handbag
Have they chnaged the metal finish on the silver version from the earlier prototypes? It doesn't seem as shiny/glossy???
Guys! Dun ever think abt getting n90 now, it's a little too late seriously. Coz n93 might be hitting the stores anytime by the next few months. Juz stick to ur n70 if u have one. And remember!
-THE PICTURE QUALITY OF THE N70 AND N90 ARE THE SAME
-THE VIDEO QUALITY OF THE N70 IS BETTER THAN N90! N90'S VIDEO AIN'T THAT SMOOTH AND IT APPEARS TO BE LAGGY
-LOOK AT THE DESIGN OF BOTH OF THE PHONES, N90 LOOKS SO OLD SKOOL
Well, thats my point of view. U guys might wanna think twice yo. Or u will really regret when n93 comes out.
