Nokia N80i – More Comments

On January 9, 2007, in Technology, by Administrator

I’ve spent two full business days with the N80i and given it some really heavy use. Here are some additional impressions…


  • Voice quality is excellent. As good as any cell phone I have used.
  • Pairing with BT headset (Jawbone) worked great. Very seamless.
  • Reception has been good. Certainly equal to my Razr (Cingular as well) and Pearl (t-mobile)
  • User interface continues to be intuitive. Lots of little things (remembering my spot in the address book) that mean a lot but probably go unrecognized most of the time.
  • Camera takes decent pictures. Better than any camera phone I have owned.
  • Battery life is great. I read complaints of this on other reviews, but it has not been an issue. Heavy use and I still have 1/2 charge left. I always charge my cell phone overnight, so getting through two days of talk time on one charge is plenty.
  • Slider is intuitive to use. This is my first slider phone and I am digging it.


  • Won’t pair with my Prius (I blame this on Toyota, not Nokia)
  • Won’t connect to my work WiFi. This is a bit of an issue. It sees the WAP, asks for the WPA password, but then kicks back an error that it can not connect. It is a WPA2 WAP, which I thought was supported.
