I got this phone as I really loved my nokia N73 but didn't want to go all out to the nokia N95. This phone allows quick and easy internet access and you can easily get your emails pushed to your phone. However doing this does drain the battery.
The phone does everything you want it to, text, phone, internet, camera, games, music etc. The phone works like a computing device and runs like it too.
The phone does have a lot of power but can seem to take time to carry out simply tasks e.g. sending a text message. This can become annoying at times and after a bit of time you just get used to it.
If you are a nokia fan you will love it but if you are not into nokia you will just be annoyed by the slow speed at times.
This phone is reliable and consistent but doesn't have all the bells and whistles that you simply don't need.
Nokia N80 has good camera (3 megapixel), mp3 and mp4 support, FM radio, WIFI & EDGE support, and SD support, three band supports.So many good features it has!
I used it for 3 months last year and however, personally, realized it does not seem as good as it should.
Although it is powerful but there are some badly problems with it.
Firstly, the thickness is too high and not easy to carry. It is too thick for ladies or even some gentlemen to handle with.
Secondly, the phone was often in dead response states, which means, it became dead many times. I found some other users complained the same problem. I am not sure the reason behind since I am not an expert on it, just an usual user, but I think it may be due to operating system bug.
If you can stand to these shortcomings, you can buy this N80. After all, the quality of Nokia is world famous and this phone is already powerful for such cheap prices for daily use unless you are in specific field. Still personally I would like to recommend update versions like N82, N85 and etc.

The Nokia N80 internet edition is a sleek but sturdy one. When I started looking for something which looks classy but not flashy and which would be sturdy - because I drop them all the time - and have kids who play with the phone, I was recommended by my friends and the reco was Nokia N80.
This has 2 cameras, internet, FM, 5 mega pixel camera, ability to surf the net and host of other standard nokia features.
It is very easy to handle. The memory is fabulous. The connectivity is very good.
The camera is fantastic - Carl Zeiss camera. With great Calrity levels. It is as good as having a digital camera. It comes with the elevant software - Adobe photo software so that from the first shot onwards, you are ready to touch yp your photos and keep them going.
It has a maps facility which is great. You can keep track of where you are and how to reach somewhere.
All in all, it is a fantastic buy at Rs.20,000/- which is what I bought it at!!
The New Nokia N80 empowers you to pursue your personal and professional goals with equal fervor. Boasting a three-megapixel digital camera, email, MP3 player, personal organizer, game console, and WLAN connectivity, its Nokia's most advanced all-in-one yet. All this in a single compact device that keeps you connected virtually anywhere you roam!
