This was a smart post below, and let me add that I have had 2 Razr phones and while they look great and are as thin as can be, the sound quality is terrible!
Just a couple of thoughts as I plow through this discussion group on the Nokia N80. First, 26mm is not really that thick for a cellphone, especially a smartphone. I've had a Samsung sph i500 clamshell smartphone for a couple of years and it is 25mm thin....its always in my back pocket, small easy to carry. Compared to a Razr...everything is thick these days. Second, I see a lot of comaprisons to other phones on this group that are not smartphones and it seems to me there is NO comparison possible. For anyone that is a smartphone user, having a phone you can program and add apllications to is one thing. Any phone without this capability is just not included in any kind of comparing at all. Oh yeah, all this was IMO....
Thanks for your response. Yes I will agree with you that jibes at those who the media dubs lower on an arbitary social and economic scale is pathetic. However, as I said pretentiousness always gets people's backs up. I would not consider myself to be "high class", having a great empathy with Orwell, Shaw and Priestly. Nor am I one of those who thinks that the phone maketh the man. I do subscribe to the comic idea that by endorsing an inappropriate and extreme point of view often stirs the emotions of others. No not like B.Manning, more like Gervais et al. I don't take life that seriously but I try not to offend with 'intent to harm' and that is the key! Incidently, I am not of a nervous disposition and hence my laughter suffers little from wimpers of insecurity.
Nice that we can laugh together on this now. So what about them Siemens phones, there sh*t aren't they. Only the 'underclass'would consider one of them!
3mpx isn't necessarily going to be any better quality than a 2mpx.. just means it can take photos with a higher resolution
he`s got 3 mp ?! WoW ... my 6280 (2 MP) takes almoust the sames quality , and at video mine`s better , and cheaper ..
yeah , i`ve find it
I`ve saw those links before , but when i was clicking on them my explorer was freezing
Now i see it worked :)
hey everybody , i would like to buy this phone .. but i don`t know the quality of the photo`s made by him and vide
Can anybdoy e-mail me some samples ? pleasee
I really need it :D
you connect to the internet with Wi-Fi by connecting to a Wi-Fi router.
The router will have a modem and hence connect you to the internet.
In public places, "wireless access points" (which are routers which you would use the phone to connect to, to access the internet) usually charge a fee and its usually expensive due to it being "new" technology.
Otherwise, if you have a wireless router in your home, obviously you can connect to the internet through that and obviously you wont need to pay an "access" fee.
However, note the phones poor battery life, which is hardly ideal for Wi-Fi. So dont expect long hours surfing the net... And also note how navigating the internet on a small screen is still problematic/awkward. So you have to ask yourself: is it even worth it?
Considering this is the only phone currently on the market with Wi-Fi, most manufacturers would semm to say no, wich is hardly surprising considering the current limitations on wi-fi power consumption/accessing the net on small screens and inadequate mobile battery power.
I LOVE this phone it is super. Battery life is really a dissapointment though. it is still a great phone. better than most of the available smartphones and soooo small. I use my n80 with ATT and it works fine. I think that because cingular took over. anyway....GO NOKIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.
this fone is sometink i would really seriously consider for it..
great features , great design , great brand , great camera , but not a great price.. thats y need to consider =)
overall its a good phone...with features like symbian and wifi..but the bater life sucks
yes you can use it safely
just make shure that the battery is completly drained before charging the battery with the N80 after 2 or thee times it ajust as long that the bateries are the same
3h batery life is poor when you have symbian phones plus all these features for me up to 4 or 5 batteries for the n80
anybody can advise me whether I can substitute my N80 battery Li-Ion 820 mAh (BL-5B) with nokia 6680 Li-Ion 900 mAh (BL-5C), the size is the same but it have a longer talk time....thanks.
I think its a nice phone...Still thinkin which to buy N80 or N93....I think Im buying N83...
Thats ok, so long as you dont go around thinking you are "high class" just becuase of what phone you have, i think we will both be happy.
Otherwise, you can keep nervously chuckling to yourself, and i'll keep laughing too.
I mean, your post where you went on about class, etc was a bit pathetic. But i'm glad you've now realised that.
I'm really sorry I couldn't resist. LOL.
Yep I'm like everyone else, a bit insecure! I admire the articulate way you establish and defend your opinion. There's noting like a bit of class based arrogance to get people's backs up and your response was great to read. At least you have some passion!
Regarding SE phones...I have had 3 so far and none of them has ever caused a problem...very reliable, the T68i was brilliant and is still used by my father. I am not normally the sort of person to flame but I could see emotions were running high and well, I couldn't help myself. The N80 is a phone I'm considering and your opinion is valuable as well as makinging me laugh for all the right reasons.
Cheers Matey, Thanks.
Is anyone out there using their nokia n80 with their old att wireless sim card? Please let me know... Thanks.
seeing from these
this is the trademark of nokia.
u get good quality software and all round powerful functions but u got to substitute it for battery life
i myself have touched the phone at the demo booth at town and i got to say i am really impressed by the weight compare to n91. it is so light and the slider function is exactly like nokia 7650, the first smartphone.
the only way to counter the short battery life of n80 is to wait for software which could auto turn off the screen on n80 as i noticed that this is a good way to save battery life
or no choice, we got to charge and bring 2 batteries everywhere if we want to enjoy the full functions of n80
i got to say, n80 is quite a wonderful all rounder function.it is a jack of all trade and expert at some! in terms of videos, function,ease of usage
Man, I love this phone. But I'm so disappointed by it's talk time and standby time... wat good for such high tech phone to have so short talk time and standby time..?
My current N70 already couldn't last me a day...
When would Nokia produce high talk time/standby time good phone with nice design? Sigh.. :(
