Nokia N80 Review

Nokia N80 Review - Nokia N80 is a 3G smartphone, providing benefits to its users from a wide range of advanced software to excellent functionality and wireless connectivity. Testing has shown that the phone is somewhat slow in booting up and also in operation, however.

The N80 is a sliding phone like Nokia 6280 or Nokia 6111. It has been noticed that the phone slides open by itself when carried in a bag or in your pocket, which is highly undesirable. It measures 95 x 50 x 26 mm and weighs 134 g, making it one of the lightest smartphone handsets around It is a quad band plus 3G phone supporting GSM - 850 MHz, 900 MHz, and 1800 MHz and 1900 MHz and 3G WCDMA 1900 or 2100 MHz frequency bands.

Nokia N80 has one of the best LCD displays, with a resolution of 352 x 416 pixels and boasting 262,144 colours. The 3 mega-pixel camera in the phone takes good pictures and has a 20x digital zoom and flash. However, the quality of photographs is no where near to the ones taken by Nokia N90. The phone has an advanced music player, which allows you to pick your favourite music track from a displayed play list. The audio quality of Nokia n80 is considered to be very good and the package includes a stereo headset. The phone comes with a 128 MB memory card, which is enough a storage space for your music files. It plays, MP3, AAC, m4a, eAAC+ and WMA format music tracks.

The battery has a talk time of 3 hours, with 8 days as stand-by. In actual experience it has been found that it is not worth expecting one or two days use from this phone and as such, any extensive use of music and smartphone features will be rather disappointing. The phone has all the basic features as desired in a mobile handset, such as, Voice recording, dialing and voice commands, MP3 ring-tones, Java applications, SMS, MMS, email, etc.
