i tested this phone and i didn't like it so much, the software platform (Symbian OS9.4) is stilll at the very begining and it still has some bugs.it's a good phone though.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2008every one here is talking about $350 and $400 as a low price for this phone ??????????come on ... morePerhaps you want it to be more expensive than the iphone or the omnia lest you bite your finger nails and cry for the money you paid to get any of these devices (I have nothing against them by the way eccept being too expensive). For your info: Price of Nokia 5800 is 279 EURO i.e 350 USD. Please check Nokia's Lauch Event in London. :-)
Anonymous, 08 Oct 2008This phone is just another iphone wannabe, although with impressive specs and features, but un... moreIphone sucks and its is a waist of good money. Iphone has been on the market a long time and now that the 3g version is launched its big. WHY? there is so much that the omnia, diamond and the nokia 5800 can do that the iphone can't do. Ppl look at what is realistic and what you need. Iphone cant even blootooth from one phone to another. Keep it real
Bakekang, 09 Oct 2008Im not interested about this phone at all. I often visit nokia's latest phone models' pages he... moreDear Bakekang, try to grow up and give the 5800 the merits it deserves. 1 for design is OK since it is your taste, but 1 for features?!! you'de better read the specs sheet again. As for 1 on performance, did you hold one in your hands lately? Please guys, be fair in your judgement and not on this device only but on all devices. You're mad about the N95 8GB good for you it is a decent phone after all, you adore the iphone, good for you as well it is a unique precedence in the mobile industry. But please be fair and give eavh set it's true merit according to it's position in it's prper market and with it's proper rivals :-)
Waiting eagerly for GSMARENA to make detailed review of this phone...........it looks good in terms price to features ratio.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2008every one here is talking about $350 and $400 as a low price for this phone ??????????come on ... moreMy dear friend this not the 1st touch screen symbian nokia phone check nokia 6708
finally..., a new nokia touch screen... I alomost buy LG KF700..I cant wait..
No one think that Nokia will have a new medel like this.
And its will be the one in the world
We got to give a hand to nokia,first touch,this phone is sexy..and quite impressed.least camera is better than iphone.bt hey its all competition.
Bakekang, 09 Oct 2008Even if N95 8GB costs twice or even thrice as much as 5800, I'd still choose N95 8GB over this... moreSo your saying that you would pick n95 8gb because its more expensive or simply because of the n-series label? That doesnt make sense.
With the 5800xm, you have a handset which is better than almost all the current n-series handsets. Yes, xpressmusic phones are generally meant for young people. However 5800xm changes a few things. Its the first nokia device outside the n-series and e-series families to come with wlan and a screen larger than 2.4 inches. Secondly, its using the same quality materials of the n85 which is different from other xpressmusic models. This phone kind of deviates from the usual xpressmusic phones. Infact, in terms of build quality and features, its more of an n-series. It didnt get a 5 or 8mp camera because that would increase the cost of the phone and this would deviate the 5800xm from being the mass product it is meant to be. In short, nokia is delivering a no-nonsense handset with no real drawbacks (as yet) meant for the mass market.
But dont worry. A touchscreen n-series phone is coming soon.
warungmobil.com, 09 Oct 2008iPhone clone. It's Nokia' 'me too'hmm.. maybe, but it almost all cellphone manufacturers released their own touch sensitive phone after iphone and besides nokia,samsung, and sony ericsson made it a point that their touch sensitive phone will deviate from iphone's shadow. and besides if it comes to "who made it first", its LG that made the very first touch sensitive mobile phone so it's all fair...
Bakekang, 09 Oct 2008Even if N95 8GB costs twice or even thrice as much as 5800, I'd still choose N95 8GB over this... morehold your horses! why do i feel so much bitterness?? i know everybody has their own opinion about this phone. This phone's target market are the "music lovers" and majority of that are teenagers, and we all know that teenagers do not have the money to buy expensive/high end mobile phones that's why it's price is low.
but low price doesn't make it cheap (in the negative sense). and besides the "xpressmusic" series are quite popular in the philippines(yup, i believe your also from here just like me) because of it's low price and great features.
i neither contradict nor agree on what your saying. you have the right to your opinion, but please, the phone isn't released yet in our region, we cant really say that it's all BAD!
My personal Idea about this phone is it is too thick(15.5mm) and the screan size is funny...
The internal memory is a joke.. it should be at least 1..2gb.
All other features are great.. that's all I need from a Phone.
Wait and see.. soon, Nokia will release 5810XM, 5820.. 30..40XM.. with improved screan size and internal memory.. but in the mean time.. this 5800XM is great...
guys... how come some of u keep on saying this phone is expensive?
for merely 279 euro (before subsidise), u wont be able to get anything with such features...
dont compare this with Xperia, HTC diamond or Omnia... the price is way much different
Dan, 09 Oct 2008Think of it this way...if you had a choice between n95 8gb and 5800xm, which one would you pic... moreEven if N95 8GB costs twice or even thrice as much as 5800, I'd still choose N95 8GB over this one. A non-Nseries for me is a big NO, NO!!! N95 8GB is a high-end, premium priced device that literally has everything that you can flaunt to the public and get them envious, while 5800 is just a N79 plus touchscreen minus 5MP. U cant flaunt it becos many people can afford it becos its so cheap! The race now is 8MP and I cant and will neva eva go back to 3MP for the sake of a fancy touchscreen! And look at the branding, its "XpressMusic"! Dont u know that XpressMusic is just a toy for teenagers??
Im not interested about this phone at all. I often visit nokia's latest phone models' pages here in gsmarena and this is my first time to visit 5800's page. Im surprised there are already lots of comments in here. But I still dont like this phone. Its of no interest to me at all. Ive just casted my vote on 5800.
Design: 1 out of 10
Features: 1 out of 10
Performance: 1 out of 10
I really dont like this phone, sorry!
