I think you are also failing to consider that it's actual 'footprint' is much smaller than most other phones of this type. Because of this it 'feels' thicker, because the thickness is a greater proportion of it's size, when in relative turns compared to other phones it is not that much more.
Ok, so it's only 15% thicker. Proportionally it is not that much. I don't think it's a problem.
If you want to dispute me, why don't you provide some EVIDENCE that what I said is not the case. I can provide you links that indicate that it's maximum thickness is 28mm compared to the maximum of 26mm for the N70.
Let me know and we can have as showdown! :D Let the forum decide? Power to the people?
Erm... the Nokia N70 is 21.8mm thick.
This fat embarrassment is 26mm thick.
4.2mm is QUITE a difference, esp when u hav it in your pocket.
Yes i have seen the phone, yes i have held it and played around with it.
And yes, it is f*ckin obese.
And that reminds me, i forgot to mention. The SLIDE mechanism of this phone is NOT spring-loaded, which means it feels like plastic GRATING against itself, its horrible.
Hardly something you would expect of a "luxury" phone with a "luxury" price tag. Yet more sh*tty things wrong with this overrated and overhyped phone.
I hope you don't mind me asking, but has the guy who complains about it being 'fat' actually held one of these phones in their hand? No one complained about the N70 being thick, and this is just 2mm thicker. 28mm compared to 26mm. Now that's less than 10% thicker than the n70. I wouldn't say that is bad in the slightest. I'm not a nokia fanboy but I think that some people are making stuff up and using their imagination to slate this phone. I have a SE W800 btw at the moment.
@ Jonny - regarding how many songs you can get on it, this depends on:
1. memory card size
2. size of mp3s
I have a 2GB card on my phone and have about 400 songs on it, hope that helps.
Found a good site that has the N80 available.
Looks like they find the deals and forward you to the retailer to buy direct.
I've ordered mine and for all the features this phone has i'll live with the thickness of it.
This thing is TOO thick.
While its nice to have a QVGA screen and Wi-Fi, i can easily live without it.
However, my pocket would find it difficult to live with a 1 inch solid plastic bulge in it.
For that reason, this ovepriced hunk of lard is out of the equation.
Roll on K800 please... It might not have Wi-Fi, but seriously, who is gonna use it anyway apart from in your home. And yes, it also doesnt have Symbian.
But it does have a QVGA screen and its camera KICKS the N80's ass about as hard as a Mike Tyson punch.
Read reveiws about the N80 camera - no autofocus - ALL the reviews are saying it is impossible to get decent pictures.
Why pay through the teeth for something that doesnt even work properly?
No thanks. Overpriced balls, just riding its reputation on hype, hysteria and a brand.
Im not that much of a f*ckin muppet to buy into it. For everyone else, wake up, do some research and wait another 2 months until a DECENT phone DOES come out, cos this one has some serious flaws (Camera/disgusting thickness).
hey what is the price yaar...one person says it is less one say it is low.....a great hype for this phone has made ppl to exploit them...guys please wait for some time...when u get good shipping u will have a great phone for a good price.
IF U WANNA BUY N91 AND N80 PLEASE GO TO www.plemix.com and check them out,good price and fast delivery too
Just because it's called "music phones" doesn't mean they are good... a comparson between the 3250, four SE Walkmen phones, and the Moto E2 at mobile-review.com shows that the 3250 is in last place. Here's the link: http://www.mobile-review.com/review/music-phones-en.shtml
So wait for the extensive review on this before you spend your hard earn cash...
Probably one of the best phone in the world today. No doubts about it... NOKIA N80!
Oh one more thing Jonny,
If you love music, you should get the N91 or 3250 instead of N80. Those are what Nokia called music fones.
Not all N series phone are 3G capable. With reference to gsmarena's Nokia specs N72 is not 3G. Check it out:+)
okay now i need opinions, should i get the phone yes or no? state your reasons please =\ i really like this phone, but its thick as a brick!
