Ye the housing materials it has seem to be what NOKIA are going to use in most of their FP-2 phones and even "TUBE", i don't have any complaints about it, only scratch marks mine has are a few on the side when it fell out my sports bag and on to a cement floor.

GbU^^
The sound delay bug is present on the N82 and N95-1 as well its only in Ngage. I have some other Symbian and Java games and have absolutely no sound delay but in some Ngage games its there, the Ngage app is still buggy, the N95 and N95-8gb owners get kern errors when trying to launch some Ngage games.
LOL MTN always an excuse when they are out of stock. Cell C and Virgin seem to be the only reliable networks here. My network Vodacom as we all know are the number one network here in SA yet they get phones SO LATE, they only got the W960 this month, got N81 last month and struggling with N95-8gb and some other highly in demand phones.
It has poor camera and buttons.The fuctionality of the navi wheel is laughable and after a few weeks of ownership my n81 has thousands of tiny scratches on the black plastic.This is not one of nokia's better efforts..I heard MTN are no longer stocking them due to the high amount of come backs..
nice observation bro... haven't noticed this one coz i played games with sounds turned off. he he..
i'll turn on the sound the next time i play games...
I was allured by Nokia Advertisements -- N81 is only device which allows you to play new N-Gage games comfortably because of 2 special dedicated game buttons! I still have old N-Gage phone and I liked old N-Gage games, so I decided to buy N81 version to play new ones. Phone has lots of shortcomings and bugs, but there is one MAJOR thing which made me totally angry and Im very disapointed -- audio is absolutely offsync with video in all games and application (N-Gage, Symbian, J2ME). Delay is about 0.75 - 1 second, in java games is shorter, in symbian games longer. This means when you shoot, you see can see the bullet, but you can hear the shot sound after 0.75s. This makes games totally uplayable, because sound is one of most importat game component for me. So can you still call N81 a gaming phone?
What do you think? Will Nokia fix this radical bug , is possible to fix it? is it beacuse of HW problems (stereo speakers, audio mixer etc.)? Is it because of MP3 which is still running in background with system app attribute?
this phone is great for texters like me. it has a lot of options too. the mp3 player and the camera is awesome. the only problem is that it's a little wobbly. other than that, the phone is worth the money!! =)
Juz bought this phone . The only thing i can say is . It is Wonderful . Charging now . hehehehehe cant wait .
The N81 has EDGE and GPRS class32.
You can get Programmes (applications) from:
And www.prodigits.co.uk (you must register then go to Forums there go to Nokia S60)
The battery life is AMAZING on the N81 mine laste nearly 2 and a half days on one charge with moderate use. The Camera pic quality is not bad in day light BUT at night its not good at all, the Video Recording is great even at night funny-enough. The N81 is a Music ,Gaming and Video device NOT camera, if you want a great camera get a N82 or go for 6220-Classic or even N78 when they come out. N78 will be cheaper than N81.
I have n81 (8G). I'm pleased from it, but today, suddenly it turned off as its charge was full, I don't know what happends for it? even, it didn't fall down. plz direct me.

Can anybody please tell me whether N81 has EDGE Class 10 or Class 32. I tried searching everywhere and looked up every spec sheet but nowhere is it clarified. Can somebody please confirm it for me. If it has EDGE Class 32, I'll go for this phone instead of 5700.

To the guy who asked about blacklisting... It is a process where the user reports a lost or stolen handset to his service provider who then add the IMEI to a National database of blacklisted phones. When you do blacklist they take your details so in the long run if it was a scam you will be hunted down for fraud, and yes it is shared with all other operators so it will be useless on all networks. Living in south africa, i c people with stolen/blacklisted phones almost daily, and all that happens is that the phone has all the functions except those requiring service i.e. Calls, gprs, etc... A blacklisted phone is like iPhone turning into iPod nano, overnight.
