anu, 28 Apr 2009Like the phone too much to return. I wanted to do all that is possible to do to make it work. ... moreLike I said before, I purchased it mainly for GPS and web browsing. GPS works amazingly, web had problem. After the master reset, web is working fine now. Everything else is a bonus to me. I love this phone. I will give it a big 2 thumbs up.

I wanted to do all that is possible to do to make it work. Spend some time on the net from desktop and found that there exists a code that will restore the set to original factory setup as it was delivered, which seems more extensive than the built in option. I tried it and SUCCESS AT LAST.
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2009how about camera
in my oppinion, the camera is too bad for the 5800... it's aweful, almost unusable in the dark, as the flash and the shutter don't get their timing right... it's ok on a bright, sunny day... i still have my N82 for taking pictures...
the rest of 5800 is just awesome, I love it, the screen is just perfect...
the actual unit is really excellent in the inside and the outside. touchscreen is very responsive and accurate, camera and video recording is nice aswell and also when browsing through the web. when typing there are 4 options to choose from its either you write it using the stylus a mini keyboard, a full qwerty keyboard or the standard sms mode. the package of the nokia 5800 xpressmusic is excellent. i can give this one 10/10 as nokia's first touchscreen device.

Got the set just a few days ago. Wanted to use mostly for GPS and internet browsing.
Installed google map 3 for mobile and it works so good that I think it was made for 5800 specially. GPS antenna is very sensitive and accurate. The set comes with its own map software which is also fine, but I like the sattelite view of the google map.
I used a few smart-phones starting from nokia 7710. Some were windows, some symbian. This is among the worst when it comes to net surfing. Already restored the system to factory setting 5/6 times hoping things will change. Also upgraded the software from v11 to v20 but no luck. The program stops responding and I have to switch the device off to gain control again. I know it is not a network problem because the same sim card works fine in one of my window based phone, yes I have already tried it. Will take it to the nokia service center next week.
Battery life is very good. The screen is BIG and brilliant.
Hi to all, have anyone updated this phone to new firmware v21.xxx, and can you take time to let us know about it;s advantages or disadvantages, is it something new with software, and wot about camera..., thanx in advance!
Check it yourself!!
FACE reality fanboys!!
the operating system needs a lot of updates. feels a bit backdated. N82 however feels a lot more pro. 5800 is slower than it actually claims. most of all picture quality is really not satisfying.
Death skeleton, 27 Apr 2009Dont BUY any new or just released nokia device. Coz most of da time nokia release new device w... morewhat about apple's experiments those are the worst
stolen data to make there own and now their paying for it dearly

This phone is a great phone. (the best ever). the screen is great. the screen is very responsive, and love the full qwerty keyboard. though im a bit disapointed because mine did not com with the 8gb card. (I bought mine in Singapore). Dont wait any longer, you will never regret this phone.
