Also Ewan Spence got on well with the 5800 and ended up enjoying it,,however both parties say things will improve once software becomes more available,,plus its the first touchscreen mass market music fone from nokia (nokia has done touchscreen before ie 7710 and tablet types)and they have done good..This 5800 has kept me as intrigued and interested (instead of being bored with fone after 3 days with another n-series or s/e fone)as the original n95.I still have not got it fully done up yet cause things keep cropping up due to family things but hoping to give it a real good going over this weekend with one of my famous battery tests,,its video fullscreen using same film i always use to keep things fair with volume around 90%..No point doing mp3 test,,in fact my last 2 nokias the n85 and this is the only time ive never done a mp3 battery test cause no need,,if you listen to mp3 non-stop for 30hrs you will be deaf and tired and hallucinating..still give it 9.5/10 as 10 has to be reserved for ultimate fone..
One last point is ive been round reviews and n97 does not live up to sound quality of 5800 so no point going for that,,as far as i can see it going to be music express for now unless things change which it will,,its gauranteed
below is a link to uk gadget were jon bently rates this with a small video and gives it 5g"s which is top rating on the show and rarley given,,

CUTE GIRL, 24 Apr 2009i really looking forward for this phone..
is it the right decision choosing this phone..
i t... moreHi,
Yes ! U are right, U should by this nokia 5800, I am using this phone from last 2 months and I haven't encountered with any technical or other issue, I have used almost all nokia phones but this is the best one. The best part about this phone is being a touch screen phone U can use it like a normal phone, i mean without the stick. It's a user friendly phone, go grab it,
Take Care !
Pls can some1 using this phone should tel how they deal wit the text message & i heard d camera is slow 2load pic
In my opinion, i dont think nokia will take drastic steps to improve the camera quality in v21.
The reason is simple, if they wanted to, they would have simply used the hardware and processing algorithm from n73, n78 etc. Its not that they produce different algorithms for dddifferent handsets.
They have purposely kept the quality low so that their n-series will have an edge over this high selling beast.
Check this out:
"Nokia claims to have sold more than three million Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic smartphones in the first three months of 2009, making it the top portable music player in terms of units sold in the UK in 2009.
Noknok reports that the Nokia 5800 has been one of the fastest selling smartphones of all times at the rate of one million a month and is expected to sell 2 million phones in May and June.
The 5800 Xpressmusic, which uses the fifth generation S60 platform, has also received a new firmware update - v22.214.171.124 - that apparently will improve the smartphone's overall performance, possibly by making it zippier, as well as making the digital camera perform better."
hi i did a back up but guitar hero isnt in the games folder i cant find it anywhere any ideas how to reinstall or get it from thanks....
therock, 24 Apr 2009face the fact. people bought iphones because of the name brand and the looks, not the full fun... morei totally support u dude.....the iphone guys are sore for having bought it....and now that they know that its not as capable as the 5800, they flaunt whatever little thing that it offers....(multitouch for e.g.)
BTW respect the iphone...not that it is the first touch mobile(we have had many before it)iphone is the reason we are having a revolution in the touch-mobile world.
GG, 24 Apr 2009Hey, I've been a user since Feb, took me 2 weeks to understand every darn application and func... moreTo the guy who's upset about the battery life of this phone. Are you out of your mind? you complain about a phone that last 3 days? Did you know the Iphone 3G last like 1 day? Remember you are using a TOUCHSCREEN PHONE with wifi, music, video, txt, email, phone, games all in one. You expect to be touching this thing the whole day and last 2 weeks? THINK before you leave a comment!
MAU-, 23 Apr 2009hey hows it going. would like to know where you got al those awesome apps from.. pls let me kn... moreactually i have searched downloaded applications from a different sites. There is not particularly one site where you will find all of them....but still here are some usefull sites.
www.pizero.net (for themes)
www.zedge.com (best site for mobile stuff)
symbianworld.org(u will find most of the apps here)

please anyone answer me!!!!!!!!!!!!
This phone have lot of problems with theres software do not buy it if you like nokia wait for third or fourth nokia phone with symbian 5th i use this phone for 5 months and i was bought it for 500euros
Hey, I've been a user since Feb, took me 2 weeks to understand every darn application and function, if you want to benefit from the phone 100% then i suggest u understand all it's functions first, once they r understood, you will have a pc in your palm, an ipod at your fingertips and easy quick browsing at your leisure - however, what DISSAPOINTS ME IS THE BATTERY LIFE, i've deactivates some applications, but the battery life does not last longer than 3 days, WHATS UP WITH THIS, IF ANYONE CAN GIVE SOME ADVICE ON EXTENDING THE BAT life, then this PHONE WOULD BE A DREAM TO HAVE.. GO GET IT, you won't be sorry, GG :)
I got this Phone from www.puremobile.com and i really love it and i there is services are really good
is it true that when you activate gps on your 5800. the unit will get hang?
