NOKIA N81 is my strter to the N-series n so far so gr8t!!!! ... 2mp might be its weakness bt its a strter n this baby is a keeper so tht small flaw is insignificant ... hello IT'S NOKIA >>connecting ppl
this is my dream music phone. where do you think i can find this set? but i think the headphones alone cost more than an n81 or an n82.
Problems with this phone(i know because i had one and now my second, which i regret.) navi wheel is bad and doesnt always work well especially in changing temperatures or being on for too long.
The gaming buttons have the tendency to crack
The slider goes loose and also scratches the cheap plastic film on the keypad.
The cheap black plastic creeks a lot when texting etc and scratches fast ( i got my second one already scratched before i even used it)
The buttons go stiff or over sensitive
Camera is pathetic and video recording max is 320x240, the 640x480 stated on the nokia site is a lie.
There is light leakage everywhere around the buttons and edges of the slider and usb port especially in the gallery where all the lighting is on for media keys etc.
Buttons can be peeled off when you stick your nail down through the edge.
I could go on....
the n81 8gb is very good, in fact its amazing!
The only problem is the camera, it takes clear pics but its only 2MP.
Nokia n81 (:, 23 Aug 2008I have a question, does anyone else's pictures come out not that great, with a greenish to it?... morecheck your camera setting
or peel off your plastic lens cover if there is still covering camera and flashlight
streaming video by youtube via WLAN is free & doesn't charged anything except for some hotspot that requires voucher money!
this is not about your operator
but the hotspot administrator

What are u talkin about man???
W960 has wifi and touch screen and a bigger screen and it has a better keys and buttons and a 3.2 mega pixel camera.
So dont be blabbin bout stuff u dont know...
I am thinkin of buyin this phone but only coz where i come from w960 is 200 quid more expensive than n81 8gb.The only xtra that n81 has over w960 is the 3.5mm jack.but still the whole idea of having the adaptor is to have the fm radio antenna on it and the extenal mic so u can use them with all headphones coz if ur really a music fan u never use the standard phone headphones.
But if im travellin to a country where w960 is more price adequate i will definitely get it over n81.
theses are all facts but for fairness sake i did try the n81 music with my own headphones and it was excellent.just as good as ipod and sony erricson walkman.So finally nokia has caught up and made a fine music phone.
But im betting that the standard headphones are not so good.

No the N81 does not slow down,it works very well with transitions and other effects.
