I told all of you this Phone Is Simply Over-Hyped...
-N80 3mp Camera is poorer than N70/SE K750i
-N80 lens is relatively Poor quality
-N80 keypad lighting & ergonomics is Poor
-N80 battery is the Worst Ever by Nokia!
-N80 costs $500+ which is too expensive & doesn't justify its flaws
Rating 7/10 = Less than "Stellar"; better to but N92/E70 or Sharp 903
Thats true Joergen. But i meant, that the N80 with its 3.0 mp cam Isnt therefor always better because its 3.0 in stead of 2.0. Also I looked at the photos taken with the N80 test model used by Mobile-Review. And i must say i prefer the photo's taken by for instance, the K750i. Also it got autofocus and macro support.
Though its not the final version of the N80, i dont think the quality will improve on there final one.
But as i pointed out as well. I don't buy a phone for its cam, but for its quality and functions. and its looks :D
To those (like Joe) who say the camera of the N80 is inferior to f.ex. N70: You say that because N80 uses a cmos censor and N70 ccd, N70 is better, because ccd is better than cmos.
I googled and found an article "ccd vs. cmos" with this sentence: "As a result, you can find CCDs in low-cost low-power cellphone cameras and CMOS sensors in high-performance professional and industrial cameras, directly contradicting the early stereotypes."
But they also write that one cannot say one is better than the other. They have each strengths and weaknesses. So, it seems that the cmos sensor in N80 doesn't have to be a weakness as posted here.

The Megapixels are size of images that it can capture ,not the quality of pictures.
What detemines the quality of pictures taken with the camera are the lens/optics.
i can't believe that picx quality in nokia N70 is better than N80.. i don't know why is that but if this is true .. i'll not buy this phone coz how come 2 mega pix better than 3 mega pix...?????? some one plzzzzzzz answer me.
Can you turn off the shutter sound on NOKIA phones? (N80 in particular)
does N80 has Speaker Fone or what because it doesn't say it does ? any know about this ?
Thank you for the information(outlawd)but why not in the black version-is more beautifull than silver.Can you tell us,please
As an employee of O2 i can tell u the phone will be available before april, I cant give a specific date for obvious reasons. all I can say is that both the N80 and N91 will be available in silver.
I Personally like the black more.
When i get more info I'll post it.
Most of the time a phone gets available unlocked before it'll be available with a provider lock on it.
As i told u once again,this is a brilliant phone, but its one more of NOKIA's comercial tricks,i was sure that it wouldnt be 4Q of 2005 neither the 1Q of 2006,
so as i stated before this phone will try to excite everyone to buy it in its highest price, the first month of its apearance and then 1-2 months later SE Samsung or even Nokia will come up with smth better and cheaper... typical...
In my opinion this phone is the best from the entire N series, though I don't understand why it doesn't have HSCSD.
I like it alot because it has the N90 display ( I was really disapointed in the N70 display), 3 megapixel camera,super wireless comunication and Symbian.
I will buy it the very second that it will be available in stores.
If everything that GSMarena reports about this phone is true, it's virtually the closes thing to perfect. Unfortunately, the 3h talktime is a major drawback. It has so many great features, it's gorgeous... but what's the point of that when you can't even use it?
I am soooo desperate for this phone. The Vodafone website is saying the N80 will be available in April !!! Was hoping it would be sooner, don't know if I want to wait that long but from what I've read about it it's better than anything else around.
The sooner this phone is out the greater the profit for nokia.Only for the wireless feature that it bares...The question is do we only wait for the fcc or how is it f!§$ing called approval and the phone is ready? or are they still producing it? because for the approval the time should be between 1 and 1 and a half month.
yes is true.. we ask a lot of about release dates... but... they will never say the realse date... just you will find the phine when is the shops... so you will know it just the same day...
but also is normal we ask.. because sometimes they say for aany quarter and often is not in that quarter
I was telling that the camera on the N80 wont be as good as a 2 mp ccd sensor. Coz ccd is much better then cmos.
The phone will be available unlocked before Vodafone or someone else get there hands on it i think.
There are still no official release dates so i wonder why people keep asking the same questions over and over.
So i ask don't post messages like.
A friend of mine works with Noka told me that....
just wait till it will show up in (online) stores
SO you say that The first who will have the N80 will be vodafone... in all countries where Vodafone is? so this phone will not be as free in shops before Vodafone have? for example in february? because often Vodafone take the phones 2 months after they are in the shops like N70 .. was available in october,,, bu tin vodafone in december..
And if will be in vodafone in March..why in the web of vodafone UK say that will be in April?
if come in March.... when in start March? or in the end?
