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.
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.
Excerpt: The Nokia N80 was the flagship model about 3 years ago - they still seem to hold there value well, perhaps I should put mine on ebay! I chose this phone at a contract renewal - it replaced my Sony Erricson K600i.
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...
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.
Pros: camera, s60, picture quality, easy to use
Cons: batery, wi-fi, signal, software problems, web browser
Summary: This N-80 is a great phone, or so I thought. But after about six months the text-messaging sending capabilities slowed to a crawl, now it takes about 10 minutes to send even the simple st of texts.
Great technology let down by truly AWFUL build quality

Summary: The functions are fantastic, the screen a gem. I wouldn't have one for free though because the build quality is truly appalling. The slide design is like something out of a Christmas cracker, there are no metal runners, just a loose plastic rail which has a LOT of play in it- I mean left to right...
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.
