N80 – Possibly one of the worst UI’s about…

Filed under: Gadgets, UI — kenjun @ 8:18 pm

The Nokia N80 has an unbelievably bad UI.

One, it is so painfully slow that you sometimes think it has just hung.

And two, it sometimes does just hang – which leaves you thinking it’s even slower than it actually is (which is pretty damn slow).

And three – it uses odd terms to describe elements. E.g. I wanted to add an item to the top menu. However, looking for “menu” in the 118 page manual does not cover it. I finally tracked it down via a Google search to “Active standby mode – Standby Display” – what on earth does that mean?!

So to add an item or customise it you have to go to  Tools> Settings > Phone> Standby mode > Active standby

… groan!
