It doesnt seem to have any drawbacks and its slider construction is much better than n81 and n96. Youre right about everyone having their own personal taste and the n85 definitely has style going for it. You should get it.
But for me, i cant afford it. Thats why im going for this phone. Its the best value for money so far plus its within my budget. It doesnt seem to have any problems as well plus it takes care of my entertainment needs (music and video). It may not have the best camera, but its still got a pretty good one. For me, this is my entertainment package.

Actually, I dont really like touchscreen phones with no physical keypad hardware. They look so plain and blank. They're not stylish. My favorites are slide phones especially dual sliders like N85. Slide phones are great and very versatile. And for me, I'd go for the active matrix OLED screen rather than a high resolution touchscreen. U know OLED screen does not have backlight. The pixels themselves light up. So even in power saver mode, u still see the screen saver in total darkness. The screen is always "on" unless the screen displays a total black background. How are you supposed to play hardcore games with 5800? No mobile gaming can be better than a Gameboy/PSP-like gaming like N85 and the like. Another thing is, dual slider was pioneered by Nokia themselves. They did not copy it from anybody else. While 5800 is too iPhone-ish. And N85 is a "complete" phone. 5800 lacks the 5MP camera, FM transmitter, and Naviwheel which are present in N85. And N85 is really the evolution of Nokia's slider phones. It follows the design trend of N81 but more sophisticated becos of more rounded edges, better choice of materials, not cheap glossy plastic this time, smooth spring loaded sliding mechanism, and intelligently designed external media keys that change labels according to the purpose - in music mode the media keys light up the rewind/fforward/play/pause/ stop labels; in game mode media keys light up the two gaming buttons; and in gallery mode the media keys light up the slideshow play/pause/stop/zoom in/zoom out labels. Very nice! And one more thing, it's got USB charging. So N85 is so much better than 5800, at least for me.

seems like u have no clue with what u talking about. u havent really compare urself with these two phones, N85 or 5800.
Stop talking bout OLED, Pixel as u seem not an expert in this. Just look at the comparison between these two in mobile-review analysis.

See and compare the better screenshots between 5800 and N85.

if u think the N85 have better screenshots i suggest u better change ur glasses soon.

lets just be objective.

> In reply to Dan @ 2008-10-10 10:58 from M@T2 - click to readFor me, OLED is better and more revolutionary than touchscreen. Have ya seen any other smartphone that has OLED screen? Do u have any idea what AMOLED screen is like in real life? U'll be amazed! Candybar design bores me a lot! I'm starting to hate it. I guess it's a matter of personal taste. But I'm obssessed with dual slide design. U can operate the phone in various modes. I just like pressing physical hardware keys with tactile feedback, not just a virtual keypad on a cold glass surface. And by the way, N85 is the ultimate slider phone from Nokia. All mistakes they had made in the past slider phones, they have addressed them all in N85. So N85 is now "engineered to perfection". It's a phone that'll make u proud that u own one. A phone that will boost your self-confidence. I just love it. Who among you agree with me? LOL!

is this already available in the middle east specially in kuwait and for how much?? check out mobile-review.com for in depth review. its a good phone and i want one a replacement for my n95 8gb. the design is for teenagers but this phone is for all ages and techy people. next year nokia could come up with another touchscreen with more features maybe a nseries touchscreen with oled display (OLED seems to be better than LCD makes the pictures more lively) 5mpix camera updated firmware upgraded touchscreen and best of all affordable price for the masses. "nokia comes with music" is a very good idea i think because you can download millions of songs for a year with a certain amount i don't exactly know how much. i love symbian OS than any other OS very user friendly...

> In reply to Anonymous @ from HHHH - click to readStop lying. The 5800xm doesnt have multitouch. It uses the same dsp as n85 (mobile-review confirms this) and n810 isnt a phone plus it doesnt have half as much features as you claim.

> In reply to Anonymous @ from HHHH - click to readHow can you say that 5800 is bad when you are using other people review? I know that your review came from another website, you even copy paste all of the sentences, because I've already read that review not so long ago and I still remember it.
it is better to wait until the phone release later (it is argued that it will be on the market in early 2009 though) and make your own review, not based on other people.

hmm i realized that lots of fanatics out there who are really hate certain cellphone brand hehehhe. but then every brand and type has their own draw backs and benefits... if you're a fanatic of an iphone then you might say that its the best phone ever regardless its flaws and all... for all the cellphone freak out there please try to be more objective in giving opinion. thanks

hmmm knowing all the specs i honestly say that 5800 xpress music could possibly gain big interest. the first time i laid eyes on the phone was in the BATMAN The Dark Night movie...... i was then wondering what phone was Morgan Freeman held in hongkong..... finally i knew it... well can't wait to buy one..... bye bye iphone..........
