Hi people,i really really wana get dis phone but theres so many mixed opinions on it,i read its specifications and i want it but then i read the opinions n ppl r sayin its crap,i want a phone with wifi n this seems to be the best lookin 1 thats guna b out.
Can ne1 help me decide wot to do before i spend alot of money on 1. any1 no the release date for definate???
Its camera has flash but is it autofocus?
With 40MB internal memory, is it enough to roam the internet?
Once again you prove that you have no idea of what youre talking about. AGAIN! The fact that stereo speaker are useless is NOT just my opinion. Stereo speakers are not useful for the normal user, its not useful for the techno/mediafreaks, its not useful for sound enthusiasts, its not useful for minimalist users and its not usefull for anyone else exept ignorants and people that dont have a clue what their talking about and go all "stereo speakers! that sound cool!", probably like yourself...
I'll explain to you WHY stereo speakers are useless. For stereo to have its effect, it needs one speaker for each ear. If both speakers are right next to eachother it becomes MONO since both the soundsources come from the same place, which is, exactly what mono is. Where are the 2 speakers on a phone? Thats right, right next to eachother. In other words... mono! Expers have been running tests on this and they have found out that if the speakers are closer to eachother than the distance between your ears, the stereo is ruined and it becomes mono. Its not that hard to understand, even you can do it. Just try it for yourself.
Simply told: Stereospeakers on a mobilephone = mono. Whats the point in that?
You also got the comparison between the two completely wrong:
"16Mcolor lcd,stereo speakers, dvb-h receiver,larger display,"
True, but stereo is useless and 16m color is ONLY good in pictures and video, nothing else, not games and not the menu or programs.
"unique form factor"
So does N80. The difference is that n80 is smaller and more light weight.
"music express phone-meaning it's superb in playing music than your n80"
Wow! You know nothing! So does N80 >_>
"90MB of RAM"
AGAIN youre just saying you have no idea what your talking about. N92 does NOT have 90mb of RAM
So does N80. Do some research next time!!
You also missed that N80 has quad-band and IR. Which one has more featuers now?
And by the way... 16m colors isnt 60 times better. You will only notice this difference in video and pictures, and that the same place were N80 is BETTER because of the much sharper display! Quite frankly, I'd rather have the sharper display of the N80 than the more colours of the N92. And I'm afraid it is you that are simple minded, since you dont even understand these features at all.
how did u say that stereo speakers are useless??? that's only your opinion... media freaks love it!... you're a normal user thats why... n92 has more advanced features... that's why its priced a little bit higher than n80. if n80 is more advanced then it should be more expensive than n92.
n80=3MP,finer display,small,autofocus,UPNP that's all...
n92=16Mcolor lcd,stereo speakers, dvb-h receiver,larger display,unique form factor,music express phone-meaning it's superb in playing music than your n80,90MB of RAM and up to 2GB capability...
so which is more advanced then???
n92 has 60 times more colorful screen than N80!!! is the 416 x 352 lcd of n80,60 times better than 320 x 240 lcd of n92??? more powerful speakers! they both have wifi... they both have 3G...
most users always want simple things thats why.. their level of thinking is of low class that's why they couldnt understand the advancement of n92!!!
n80 is so simple phone... yes... and also i'ts for those who are simple minded.
sorry if i told the thing that if n92 is smaller... ... i was also wrong in that but, my point is stereo speakers and 16million color lcd are of course don't appeal much for most normal users,because i'ts more than the average,normal users just want average. and technoids as i've said want spectacular features(like 16M color lcd,stereo speakers)even loosing one important feature. nokia n92 loose the finer display but it was replace by more colorful lcd. stereo speakers may not be important to most people because it's not practical for a phone to have that,but it will be important to those technoids. i would agree that nokia n80 will be the best because it got all the basic features... and nokia n92 just a runner up because it did sacrifice some basic just for some cutting edge technology... meaning n80 is a safe choice. and n92 is more advanced but loosing some important features. media is so important to me thats why i could sacrifice some of the important features.
it doesnt have speakers!!!
shoot me now!!!
and dont tell me i dont need them!!!
I prefer this phone as its camera does not have cover. I try testing with N70, the delay is too long to open the cover to take picture.. my personal opinion. In fact N6680 is faster in that. However, still I prefer no cover for camera portion, as it's faster when taking picture.
When it comes to N80 features.. this is really a topnotch however, I find its design so yucky.. I just hate sliding phone... sorry.. you can't have my sales on this... plus the camera don't have cover... my goodness! Camera cover is really important to prevent scratches on its lens.. I should be contented with my N70 for the moment.. but I know NOKIA will make better phones soon... good luck...
top phone, no company can make a phone as good as nokia, symbian is the best os, 3 mp is the best camera as yet, the list goes on there is no other good phones on the cards and there wont be until next year, ive had a 6630 for a year and when it was being released the hype was the same and its still one of the top phones on the market now, im happy to urgrade for 12 months with an n80
this would be nokia greatest phone yet ..others than N92 ..it has many connectivity opitions such as wifi,bluetooth V2.0 ,infrared, and even usb 2.0 . 3 Megapixel cmos camera with flash ... excellent quality screen display,plus new symbian 3rd party V9.0 with improve new system that continue the fun .. i cant wait until it released ...hopefully it has good quality sound quality
Decided to cool my interest in this phone. Gonna go for the 6280, better features, same screen quality and only a smaller camera. Not a problem for half the price. This phone is going to cost ££££££, believe me.
One Hell of a Phone in Black!!!!!! Looks like a winner n features 2 r top notch!! Hope Dis time Nokia really gets into top gear by pricing it sensibily n making sure dat all software issues are at extremes!! Eagerly waiting for dis 1 hope all the wait is worth it! :-)
vodafone has announced on their website that it will be available in april in uk
so far d best nokia ever (in specs) "Tester" i agree with u, SE is quite good in sound, camera and battery, but their real phone features are not that good (for me) dat's y i've junked a number of SE phones before. ask for me, i prefer a mobile phone with Symbian OS than a camera with auto-focus and flash. each manufacturer/models has its strong & weak sides plus d fact dat each of us r not alike, we hav r own preferences and needs, it just so really happened that nokia has more models to offer with varied target market segments which i think brought them into d number 1 spot! besides my panasonic LX1 can do d auto-focusing, flash, image stabilization, record and play 16:9 Aspect: 848 x 480 pixels @ 30 fps of video plus much more! (sorry, maybe i should hav not included that panasonic stuff) :)
If the prototypes that are available now arent close to the final product, then it means the N80 will arive on the market very very late,(when the other brands will already have smth similar,maybe better to show)
if the prototypes are in the final stage of the production then it means this phone isnt as impressive as its anounced to be...
if this this will be combined with the high estimated price and the very low(much above average) battery wich is going to be a big problem for bussinesman, then this phone's sales wont be good at all and NOKIA will loose even more...
So far in market, SE is the best in terms of Camera and Sound. Reviewed in this site that camera quality is better than N90 which is the best camera in NOkia phone so far.
As for N80 camera quality, there's no much improvement in terms of quality. Only improvement is from 2 to 3 MP. Photos taken by N80 is shown in mobile sites by reviewers. Not impressive.
But still I prefer Nokia as it uses Symbian, else I will abandon it.
how can you say the camera is bad, when you have never used this phone, seen any pictures taken by this (non-prototype) phone~? Shows that u know s*hitall about fones if u are judgeing the camera by a prototype version!
how do u know it has a bad camera ? u never tested it in the first place.
Sure ,symbian OS may have bugs etc...
but you don't know whether the Version 9.1 of symbian OS has fixed those errors.
For battery life , you can buy a batter battery , like BL-5C (970mAh) or BL-6C .
