I bought by 5800XM 5days ago. But there are some problems in it. When I listen Music in built-in music player, at the end of each track, I hear a cracking noise for about 1 second, then a pause for 1 second and finally the next track begins. These MP3 and M4A songs are quite normal in N95 with the same memory card. It occours in case of both handset and headset. Another problem is with video player. When I play a video, sometimes it freezes for 1-2 seconds than play again.These also play well in my N95. Can anyone tell me what occurs in your case? How can I solve this? Is it possible to make a group or playlist in video player or gallery which we can do in N95? Thanks in advance.
Xenon, 25 Jan 2009After using for about a week..i am gonna comment on dis. For me dis is not da perfect set! ye... moreHi! may i ask if someone texted you in 5800 did there name appear on the screen or just a plain text message received? tnx!
gsm1771, 24 Jan 2009Hey 5800XM users, How are you with your new handset. I'm not well. When I listen Music in bui... moreI have the same problem too. I think its a firmware bug. You may contact Nokia Care or update your Firmwar through NSU.
hxs, 25 Jan 2009hi.. i m thinking of buying a touch phone... but i m confused if i shld buy the i-phone or 580... moreIm telling you right now get the 5800 if you dont want to pay 100 a month for your bill because if you get the iphone 3g lagemenetly than your gonna get it from att but you can still get it from t mobile but the experience is not as good so get the 5800 and u can customize it ur way
I have been using the phone for a few days....no doubt it is a good phone but some snags are always always there....there would be no 100% perfect phones I ever met...
What I found in 5800 Xpress Music is that the phone doesn't blink and display the incoming call numbers...the screen is just in black and if u wish to pick up, u just need to press the green button on left bottom side....which I don't like it very much because I can't see who is calling....I guess Nokia should have corrected this in the batch of production, I hope...
The screen colour is very very nice....I like it very much...no doubt it has 16M colour... touch screen pad is very responsive, probably it can beat IpHone also in this manner...
Writing SMS is easy also after a few days of used and become familiar....u can even type with one hand too!...but please don't type SMS while driving...ha ha..
Anyone who loves Nokia phone, may be they can opt for this one for his next change!!!!
hxs, 25 Jan 2009hi.. i m thinking of buying a touch phone... but i m confused if i shld buy the i-phone or 580... moreuhm, the choice really boils down to ya, if yu like txting sidewise with a qwerty keypad...yu'd be better off with 5800, otherwise juz go wth the iphone...with camera quality 5800 beats iphone...5800 also beats iphone with connectivity and memory capacity with an expandable memory upto 16gb or maybe even 32gb...iphone beats 5800 for UI quality and also for the thousands of apps available for it...then both of them perform good with multimedia...so yeah..its your choice..
i hope that was able to help yer decision
I was given a demo from nokia on the phone. one word... brilliant! I want one.
hxs, 25 Jan 2009hi.. i m thinking of buying a touch phone... but i m confused if i shld buy the i-phone or 580... moreIf ever make calls while driving, I would recommend that you should stay away from all touch screen phones. otherwise its fine.
When will this phone be out with 3g that works with att? I know they already sent some stuff to FCC but does anyone know when? I dont plan on using a data plan with this phone though cause im in college where theres wifi everywhere but it would be nice to have 3g if one day i decided i wanted it.
Im asking because im going to New York in 2 weeks and I heard they are selling the european version without 3g... and its $350 which is a great price! Im scared they are going to bump up the price with the 3g for the american version.... Should i just buy it or wait for the american version?
Salem Ababneh, 25 Jan 2009Hello, well... I've never bought a 5800 Express Music (am welling to hehe), but my friends are... moreYeah man, the iphone users and iphone itself have got third finger to in the back, and lock themselves in island in illusions and hops for copy and paste,mms and video recorder and all they get is fake update just higher version number, that's all!
Get nokia if you want to have freedom of multimedia device on your pocket man!

I advise you to bay ear bulbs for your phone, but not the one nokia have in box, than your ears will bounce loudness&bass only with half volume!
hxs, 25 Jan 2009hi.. i m thinking of buying a touch phone... but i m confused if i shld buy the i-phone or 580... moreHello, well... I've never bought a 5800 Express Music (am welling to hehe), but my friends are telling me that its not like I-Phone, i mean the touching screen in I-Phone is way better, bcuz its more accurate, and u can use two fingers on the screen, not just one (like the 5800), but i would recommend 5800 bcuz it has so much more better features, and... better looking :D!!
Good comments but I disagree your comments about Nokia 5800 sound quality. You are saying N73, 5300 xm etc... has better sound. You must be joking, Nokia 5800 has stereo speakers with a very good sound quality. I think its much better compared to the examples you presented. You seem to think that the louder the voice is the better, it has also the quality aspect. By the way my wife has a loud voice when she is screaming however I can say to you it is not nice to hear :)
I am one of the owner(Red). I am not so sattisfied with the built in speaker of this phone. It is nt as loud as wat i expect because according to Nokia this device is the loudest in the industry.
My N73ME, N81 8GB and 5310XM is far way louder than my 5800XM.. When using a earphone, the fidelity is good but the bass level is very poor. Ive already tried to edit the equalizer but the output is not impressive at all.
Other defects are the camera quality.. It really sux for Carl Zeis and 3.2 MP level.
My impressions are on the touch UI.. Nokia have done a very good job. Bravo Nokia!
To Nokia, please come up with a latest firmware to fix the camera as well as built in speaker quality sound and the bass driven as soon as possible.
Thank you very much!
