I got the Nokia 5800...after it was launched in India(3rd Jan)...was playing around with it for some time now...Its awesome..the touch is really superb compared to HTC models and other touch models i have seen...still Symbian has to go a long way to compete with Windows OS...still this phone is a marvelous product from Nokia..as long as it is affordable to common man in India..unlike other phones like Iphone, Omnia, Xperia...This is a gem for Indian market...software needed to be updated as there are still some bugs to be fixed...Nokia is way ahead compared to Samsung, Apple, Google, and LG...in look and feel iphone beats this set as it has got rich aluminum finish..but that make iphone heavier than nokia..will post you more update as i use more this device..

i bought this phone
it's really a good one
but i had few problems while using it
and i need some help
1st and the most important now
is that all my images don't appear in the gallery
it's like they r hidden
the phone can read the memory card well but the images aren't there
i can find them by the file manager only
can anyone help me plz
Why do they not sell the blue or black? The only color is red and the price is high. I think i will wait a few weeks when they drop the price.
Original_Jamaican, 03 Jan 2009I'm not surprised to hear the 5800 is slow and the material feels inferior.
GSMArena stated... moreDude, 5800xm isnt slow. I've seen videos + my friend actualy owns one. Its quite responsive. Plus its also good enough to take on some high end phones.
Apart from the build materials n keypad, the 5800xm beats some of the other phones u mentioned. Things lyk better sound quality, bigger screen, lighter weight, stability, etc are better implemented in the 5800xm.
E71 and e66 are now midrange plus some of their features aint that impressive (bad 3.2mp camera).
E90 is in a class of its own coz even top notch phones have trouble competing wit it.
i am planning to buy new mobile in nokia but i am very much confused in selecting the model between n85 & nokia 5800.please help me out which mobile is nice and i will use messaging more also so give your suggestion in buying please
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Dude its already available for order in bd. Its priced at T.k. 23,000(a little over $300). You have to order it at the dealers. It'll take a week or so to hit stores. I'm gonna get one too.
Original_Jamaican, 03 Jan 2009JOHN, the 5800 isn't the first touchscreen Nokia. The 6708 was!!! Why do you and everbody k... morethe first touch screen phone of nokia was the 7710. the 6708 was not a nokia. it was outsourced.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2008well i was so happy and waiting the nokia symbain touch but? i was so sad when i got it iny ha... moreI'm not surprised to hear the 5800 is slow and the material feels inferior.
GSMArena stated in it's news that Nokia says the 5800 is a mid-range device...NOT high end...so my friend there's your answer.
The E71, E66 and E90 are all high end, very high end too, hence the reason for the stronger materials which is mainly metal and faster response time from these three E series phones.
Finally, the 5800 is not Nokia's first touch screen, the 6708 was.
viks, 03 Jan 2009so nw it dosnt gt layoff for 1 sec whn tilting the phone...??There is still a small gap of one second while tilting the phone. I don't know how it was in v10 so can't really compare. What v11 seems to have done is reduce the over sensitivity of the accelerometer so that it no longer switches to landscape on a minor tilt.
John, 02 Dec 2008If you ompair the N95 with IPHONE then you no nothing about phone. I did mention in my comment... moreJOHN, the 5800 isn't the first touchscreen Nokia. The 6708 was!!!
Why do you and everbody keep forgetting about the Nokia called 6708 ?
PEOPLE THE 5800 IS NOT THE FIRST TOUCH SCREEN NOKIA PHONE!!!!!!
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Its priced at Rs.21800. Some Nokia shops are offering the option of buying back the free additional Sennheiser headphones and hence selling it for Rs.19500. I got it for Rs.19500 without the extra headphones
Here a video showing the nokia music store on the nokia 5800:
Nikhil, 03 Jan 2009Just got my Nokia 5800 here in Mumbai. The good news is it already has firmware v11 pre-installed.so nw it dosnt gt layoff for 1 sec whn tilting the phone...??
Dude u r either bluffing tat u have da phone or u mite have got it from da grey market......
I have prebooked my 5800xm n da pl8c frm where i booked my phone is a company owned Showroom(not a Nokia Priority Dealer). It is due to be released on Jan6(initially planned for Jan 3) thruout the country(India).N the headphones are not free but u get them for an additional payment of Rs. 600(INR). No definitive price has been set for the phn yet.......
My best guess wud be tat ur dealer has bluffed u by selling u a set bought frm da grey market......
