A bit of a dissapointment

  • Excerpt: Ok, so i've had this phone for almost 2 years now... and i think ive had enough time to evaluate it and give a good review on it, seeing that ive used it a LOT and have put it through a lot of stress. So, let's see. Pro's: When i first got this phone, i was really impressed. As i opened the box, i realized that it really is a gorgeous little phone. It looks awesome. It's screen is great and the overall quality (visual and audio) is amazing.

  • Summary: Did anyone else buy this phone from Hong Kong? Pretty phone but cannot send text messages (even though message center was changed) and cannot access yahoo emails! Even cheap phones do this. WE hav spent over 10 hours with TMobile tech support, Nokia tech support etc. Has anyone found a solution to this problem??

Not at all happy

  • Excerpt: I wanted to love the N80, I gave it 10 days. I made excuses for it's behavior and tried to rationalize myself into accepting the flaws and quirks. But I have gone back to my trusty 6230. IMO the 6230 was the best Nokia phone ever made if it was a quad band it would be perfect. The 6230 does everything you would want a phone to do: it is light, small, physically solid, rock solid stable (to be fair it took several firmware upgrades to get to this level of stability),...

Must Try Harder

  • Summary: Nokia have made brilliant phones in the past, but this was the start of a bad patch called the N-Series. While miles ahead of the 66xx series in terms of features (wifi, 3 megapixel camera, high res screen) the battery life is worse than ever, with a brand new type of battery (BL-5B) which makes all my trusty BL-5Cs obsolete. This version of Symbian S60 3rd Edition operating system will not auto-detect when you are in range of a recognised wifi network.

  • Summary: when i first got my n80 i thought it was the best thing since sliced bread but that was not to last. soon after using the phone i found the battery life useless, i would have to take a charger to work just so i could use it. the wi-fi stopped working after 2 months, im not sure what the problem was hardware or software but anyway i found web browsing slow and annoying.
  • Pros: camera, s60, picture quality, easy to use
  • Cons: batery, wi-fi, signal, software problems, web browser

Brilliant phone, but let down by two huge flaws.

Mr. D. Bell "Dan Bell", Amazon

  • Summary: My first impression of this phone blew me away. The features are outstanding and, as with all Nokia's, it is intuitive and easy to use. The 3 mega pixel camera is superb, as is the video recorder. The media player is very good, it's got wi-fi connectivity and a huge number of other features too long to list. That is the plus points but sadly there are two downsides which have made me eventually wave goodbye to the N80. The first is the battery which is truly pathetic.

  • Summary: Don't get this phone on Orange in the UK, huge software conflicts make it a total nightmare! Very, very disappointed.
  • Pros: Contrary to reviews I find the camera excellent
  • Cons: The fact I've had 5 in as many months due to them keep breaking down

Not bad, not good

Mr. Wayne Pascoe, Amazon
17 September 2006
  • Summary: This isn't a terrible phone... It's a Nokia with familiar menus which is important. It means that in an emergency you can throw it at someone and tell them to call emergency services and using it will be intuitive. I didn't realise how important that was until I threw a P910i at a family member and added 2 minutes to a 999 call. The signal on mine is quite poor.
