Our opinion is that Nokia N80 is a brilliant business phone with powerful equipment and many great features. Probably many would not share our enthusiasm and will say that it’s too big or uncomfortable to use but we consider these drawbacks as minor. Now the heavy price of the phone will be the main disadvantage that will dishearten many potential customers. Considering the fact that this phone offers 3G support, Wi-Fi Internet connectivity, a 3 megapixel camera and the advanced Symbian 9.1 OS we don’t find it strange at all that there are many people willing to pay even the hefty introductory price.

Strengths: Good User interface, Easy to organise, Metalic silver frame. Weaknesses: Battery time, more weight. Using experience: 6 Months I am a fan of NOKIA, so far I used 5 phones. N80 is my latest phone. Storing personal data like multiple phone numbers, email, address, etc.. very good to organize.

Pro: Loaded with great functions, Loved the FM Radio, was really easy load music tracks. I think it is great that you can use stored tracks for ringtones, eliviates the task of paying for and downloading new ringtones. Con: Has a short battery life and is a little to bulky,as far as thickness. Overall I am very pleased with the phone, I don't regret paying the price for it at all. The MP3 player is great and really easy to download the tracks with the provided programs. You can also record a video for about 60 minutes which is also a great feature, none of the 30 second videos with this phone. The FM radio is a great tool as well, I can just plug my phone into my speakers at work and listen to all of my favorite stations. Less
