Also, another con I forgot to mention - THE BATTERY SUCKS!!! Terrible for even an average user. If you are going anywhere but your house for the night, don't forget to bring a charger =)
I have been using Nokia N80 for the past 1.5 years. It has worked well, and been through everything with me :) However, it is NOT THE BEST phone.
Good resolution screen
THE cable connecting the phone to the computer does is wobbly. I nearly bricked a phone because I moved the phone from one position to another when updating the firmware.
HUGE in pocket
THE cover is wably
SMALL keys, especially the D-pad
Slow when loaded up with themes and other stuff
MANY useless features for the average user
All in all, this phone is good for the corporate people that really need the email, internet, and other corporate-oriented features of this phone.
As an average user, I regret spending so much money on a phone, whose features I barely used.
I just got myself Nokia 6300 and it has everything I need without excess and for a good price. So, if you are a corporate guy, if you are constantly on the move and need all of the features offered by N80, get it. Otherwise, don't waste your money.
almost all slider, clamshell, and swivel phones suffer from this ribbon thing resulting into white screen.
with that in mind i still went with this phone because of all the features packed into it.
6500 slide might be faster than this one but specs wise, i think this phone still wins.
my phone is just like that,when i playing mp3 for some times,then the screen will appear blear.i just want yo known whats goin on with my phone
hi to all,
im using my n80 for 1 year,and got no problem at all, i use it as a modem to access to internet esp. im in remote area and no access to internet,2nd i can still use or i can access thru internet using that fone only, good its wifi, 3G also, and 3.1 mega pixel. 10.00 pesos for 30 minutes internet connection thru smart connection philippines.its great ,believe it. its me ramier ,to prove it,call me 0063+9093441373.
my problem (white screen)has finally been solved last night. i went to nokia care center and was informed that it's most likely that the ribbon (flex) has been damaged. And true enough coz when they open it "that" part was broken indeed (they let me see it). It cost me more or less $45.
i'm having problem with my n80(black) coz the screen is totally blank now even if i turn it off and turn it on after a while its all blank. could somebody tell me what's going on with my phone? Does this has something to do with the ribbon thing? or LCD or some sort? I need HELP
I have been using this phone for more than 1 year and its giving me a lot of problems. I don't know why it happened but everytime I wanted to send a sms, it would
the screen freezes and it takes more than 5 minutes to send it over to the receipient. So I can only continue using the phone after the sms had been sent.
the phone would auto-restart itself for the third or fourth minute when the screen freezes.
I don't know why the phone will react this way.
And also, the phone uses up too much power already.
What should I do?

my ear piece ya cant hear anyting how do u get dat problem fix..when ya received a call got to put it on loudspeaker...please for some help"
Most likely your lcd has gone blank or will start being affected as well. It sounds like you have a flex cable problem and need to get your phone repaired.
My screen goes balnk when I slide it up. I have been using the phone for close to a year. Any help?
I am using this N80 right now. There are a little problem. All N Series product have a problem. They will restart suddenly whenever they want. Beside we are using the internet that's time or anything, twice , three times or more for a day.
But N80 is a nice hp. Best picture and sound. But not so suitable to make it a phone call, because, i can't hear the voice when i am calling to someone. When it happen, i am using the loudspeaker. So bad.

Good one- no complains at all. Bulky? nuhh it worth bulky and just the right size for big guys like me. the only cons i have is the top number keys 123 are hard to hit. my battery lasts for 3 days with normal use "i'm not that music fan" use WiFi seldomly and 1-2 hours max talk plus text. still standing for 2 days.
if i were to complain i would say that bloody blue light keeps flashing at night. thats annoying how can i turn that shit off?
got N80. no complains so far. compared to my old k750i and it was awesome. i konw its older than N95 but overall the same performance with reasonable price. even better performed than Iphone. really Iphone doesn't have 3G and infrared while i can play with my TV set using N80. touch screen doesn't matter when oyu got much higher resolution. wifi works cool paired with my home net. and finally, thank you Nokia team!!! honor goes to you.
n70 has a better video quality than n80
Im sorry to say that the video quality has nothing to do with the megapixel resolution of the camera
n80 has had problems taking videos indoors
it is the noise that causes the blurring
if you'd notice it would become alittle bit on par with n0 when ooutdoors or in very good lighting right?
