I haven't been able to see a real blue coloured N81. Do any of you have one and can comment on its appearance in terms of aestethics?
bro, do you know a video player program that can fast forward videos. n81 can play videos but it can't forward to the scenes i want to see. thanks.
now I know bout the volume steps.. tnx..
the speakers of N5700 is better than N81..
don't buy N5610.. its not worthy.. its just series 40 OS..
I dowloaded n-gage games..but all of them are trial versions only.. does anybody know how to crack this or how to unlock its keygen to have the Full version, without buying from nokia..??
the slider is nice.. & its not hard to press the keys.. it has smooth textures.. the navi wheel is the best.. its like ur using an ipod..
I am using N81 for 2months and since I bought it, I've always had this fear about the slide. I think that the slide was not built properly and that it may loosen anytime. I compared the slide to my N95 and I realised that the N95 is way better than N81. anyway, for the sound it is superb with or without headset but a lot better with a headset cause the base is significantly heard. It looks elegant though because of its balck color. The back cover, nah, I don't like it. Camera, poor result.. I am not satisfied. Overall I am happy but it's not the kind of phone that I will be using for a yr, I am going to replace it asap.
all i can say about build quality, its not the best. Most units creak, its plasticky and glossy. But sliding mechanism is smooth, its not loose. Thats the type of build you'll get from n81. There's a N81 that has a high quality build but that is very rare. About the keys, it's not SMS friendly but you'll get used to it in time. Naviwheel is nice and fun but doesn't give precise response. Sound quality, superb. Second to none! Image quality, average results. I'm not so keen into observing pictures. Speed, response to keypresses is lightning fast. Rarely hangs. Battery life, of all the phones I've used, N81 8GB (which I'm sure also holds true to N81) has the best battery life. Well, actually my P910i has better battery life, but for a Nokia phone, N81 really has a long lasting battery capacity. About the weight, it doesn't bother much.
when earphone is plugged into the 3.5mm lack, volume is adjustable up to 20 steps. But if you-re playing music via loudspeaker, volume is adjustable only to 10 steps.
N81 with microsd slot has an advantage over N81 8GB because you can expand your memory of up to 16/32GB when those capacity cards are released. N81 is meant to be a dedicated music phone and gaming device. N81 is best overall than 5610 or N90, only loses in the imaging department. But if you want a better camera and cool music functions in a phone, 5610 have that advantage.
i'm planning to buy N81, but i have some couple of questions...
-how's the slider? not loosing?
-how's the key? isn't it hard? menu and green/red and "c" key isn't it hard to press?
-the nave wheel, it looks like hard to use in "square" shape?
-sound quality? speakers?
-picture quality? comparable to that of the k750i?
-speed? fast or sluggish?
-any hang issue?
i'm waiting for your response...
I am in a plan of buying a N81
Which one is good Normal or 8gb Ed?
I nee dsome solutions about the camera
I heard its camera is below avarage ?
If it is ,I want to know which one is good,
5610 or N81 or N90?
I just read the specifications of N81 at nokia.com.ph.. it says about the dedicated volume keys are up to 20 volume steps..while mine is only up to 10....
the n-gage gaming for N81 is not worth it.. I can't connect to n-gage.com.. and i'm sure u have to buy if you wanna download games.. thats crap.. my memory card had corrupted and my demo games are lost too.. does anybody know where to find n-gage games for nseries phones and download it 4 free??? help.. =)
I'm from Philippines, I replace my N5700 xpress music to N81.. heres my opinion about the n81:
the style is cool especially the navi wheel.. its like ur using an ipod device in navigating the music..
my disadvantages bout the N81 is:
it has low quality speakers than N5700..
N5700 has higher volume and more clear sound than N81.. you won't even hear the Bass at N81..but its headsets are perfect.. better use headsets on listening at N81..

Wow! Thank you so much for your help. I really appreciate it. I called the Nokia Care, they were not able to answer my concern. God bless you!
I wanna ask you guys something... i'm thinking of buying Nokia n81 at the end of this month... i went to check it out... i didn't like the brownish color 8GB... and i didn't like the blue either... the silver looks nicer... Does it come Silver ( 8GB ) >>>>>???
i just want to know which is better,nokia n81 or nokia 6500 slide?! because i think that their features are almost the same.... what shall I buy?please help me...
Im in SA, live in JHB. Ive had my N81 since late December 2007. I bought it from Cell C, Virgin also had stock. Im sure MTN have them now. Vodacom have a shortage of stock of N81s. If you want the N81-8GB i think rather try Virgin.
Would love to be able to give my opinion on this phone but have not been able to get hold of one in SA since Feb 2008. Must have a problem manufacturing them?
