The n80 is a great phone,see this link it,s not fat like some says,see for yourself in comparation with nokia n70 http://www.planete-nokia.com/phpBB2/index.php?showtopic=23611
just been to have a look at the k800 and its depressed me so much im not looking firward to the bank holiday weekend now ,,,in fact it brought me right down!! im off for a bottle of vodka now to drown out the thought of that ugly phone its so saddening..last time i saw something that bad they nuked it and exorcised it but thats another story..my god i feel so depreesed i might buy an alcatel at least it will look nice
k800 only qcif video resolution which is stoneage and k800 looks like a square piece of poo..its got no looks at all except for poo.why one would want a piece of poo in his or her shirt or jeans pocket beggars belief.
I have been reading all the posts on this forum for the last 6 months. Am relieved that N80 is finally released here in UK . will wait for another 2 weeks for prices to drop till I finally buy it. there are negative points like low battery life and autofocus... but I am prepared to look over these.I cant live without symbian and wireless... since there is no other better phone in the market right now and i cant wait another 6 months or so for hte nxt nokia version .. i am prepared to take the N80. pls.. do not compare any SE phones with this one.. as this one is much more feature rich and SE will lose miserably. this is a N80 forum.. lets keep it that way ! Cheers !
How do you get the codes to set up your internet etc. I have a Samsung D600 I'm going to give to my wife, but I've never been successsful setting up the web portion of the phone.
Anyone have actual pic of their phone (N80) also who has the best pice on the web. I am looking for an unlock N80 to replace my tero 650 which i hate so much!
Ps. GSM please!
thanks to all ahead of time.
Can anyone comment about how the Video Cam is? well Compared to the N93, how bad is it? 1/2?
N73 all the way. The only thing the N73 loses on is the fact it doesnt have Wi-Fi and thats it.
But if you want the N73, u r gonna hav to wait til at least Q3 2006. And knowing what Nokia is like, that means late Q4 or early Q1 2007.
More fun and games waiting then. I think the K800 it is until they release the N73.
I held a N80 model in a Nokia store the other day. It is much smaller than you would imagine it to be. You cant say its a brick until you have held one, cos it really isn't. Awesome phone ppl!
to London below, the funniest thing u posted is that the fone isnt out. its been out for 3 weeks now. people on the post are immature though.
No, we do know how thick it is. Its 26mm thick. Which is far too thick.
See for yourself just how horribly fat this thing is:
Then realise what was said in the same review:
"and the body thickens to 26 mm around the camera module, which is quite a negative factor as a user has already got used to slim solutions.
...in a shirt pocket it will be noticeable and mainly due to its thickness it will be felt in jeans."
To me, thats quite a serious design flaw. To a lot of consumers, it will be quite a serious design flaw.
Its already losing customers from its obscene dimensions and poor battery life. Its just not acceptable and there is quite a large buzz within the market about just how disgustingly obese this thing really is; in other words, its seriously putting people off this phone. Wi-Fi alone is not going to win over customers... (NB: dont forget the poor battery life when thinking about the Wi-Fi on this horrible wedge).
some people on here are well immature its unbelievable. and the funniest thing about it is the phone isn't even out yet. noone knows how thick it is etc. do some people not udnerstand people have different preferences. maybe some people like the thickness of it and are happy to carry it round. some people don't think it has good features, fair enough, just because people don't agree with you don't start getting abusive to people because its ridiculously childish. some people.
shut up! very noisy on tis page!!! each stands ur tots n pls somebody genuinely holding e fone come up w realistic views abt e fone. n begging u, gsmarena.... pls do ur extensive review on e fone asap 4 all ur sincere web readers viewing pleasure. thanks in advance.
oh and don't bother replying because you've already made it perfectly clear that all you can argue about is the fact that this phone is thicker than the average phone..
okay things hte N80 has which k800 doesn't:
Symbian S60 (the fastest os for mobiles which u can get TONS of gr8 software apps for)
dude these are KEY features of hte N80. u think wifi isn't important and yet you can get free broadband interent access to browse full html websites on your phone. You really think this ISNT a good feature???
oh and what's good about the k800???
higher battery life which means u only have to charge the fone every other night rather than every night?
I think the features on the n80 are a LOT more important than these little gimics on the k800
you say this phone is an inch thick???
LOL then how bout u look at this photo...
do u really think that's too thick?
if ure so obsessed with thickness and that's ure only REAL argument against hte n80 then u shud get a RAZR with shi*tall features but yeah woohoo it's nice and thin
Yes, it is sad. But just try explaining that to fanboy CMV. Could someone please remvoe the cotton wool from over his eyes...
How come the processor is only 214MHZ? N70,6680 and 6630 already running a 220MHZ processor.
this is sad...
Im not saying wait til nxt yr to buy a new phone. All im saying is to buy this phone right now is a complete waste of money and time.
Wait for the new SE's and then upgrade early nxt yr. Thats ur best bet if you are after the "best" phone..
n93 has IR port...i verified and informed the moderator and it is changed now....
what do u do with QUAD band..for a person who roams about to places of different bands...any phone in the world is nothing...
CMV - there is "no better phone on the market right now".
Is that because only because the "competitor" to this phone (the SE K800) cant fit a FEW extra pixels onto the screen, DOESNT have symbian, or a CRAPPY wi-fi aerial.
Should we overlook the K800's superior camera, battery life and PRICE too shall we?
I think the fan boys like you CMV need to wake up and remove your rose tinted specs when it comes to this thing.
The N80 is the "best phone on the market" purely because it has a few features MORE than the next phone, most of which you would NEVER use anway. Pull the other one and smell what you're shovelling...
