Hi Friends,
What I would like to say about Nokia 5800 is its drawbacks r higher than the benefits.
Firstly about the multitouch options.I appriciate that nokia has tried to compete with Apple,HTC etc companies with this touch phone . But I have tested the phone by myself & found that Its multi-touching options are very disappointing & really worse than comparing to I-Phone & HTC. So if u r thinking of changing from I-Phone or any good touch ohone to nokia 5800 then trust me that Its not worth it .& its typing experience will simply give you nightmares as no query key-board & on screen keyboard isn't much good . Its screen resolution (360*640) is less than any other latest touch phone of its time . Its brightness is also not Impressive .

Secondly about the camera . I don't know who told u people it has Carl Zais Lens !!! Its true that it has a 3.2 MP auto focus camera . Which's picture quality is same as N73 & in dark environment the picture quality is really worse , as the camera lacks of FLASH . There is also no Lens Cover & the lens is almost at the surface of the body . As a result it is highly possible to get scratched right after the moment u keep it in your jeans pocket .

Thirdly about the Wi-Fi . I don't know tht what is the problem with nokia !!! This is the 1st phone that I have tested in Which U have to type the Wi-Fi access point manually with its settings (So if u r visit new places , try to use their Wi-Fi server for anything then Its Impossible for you to do anything unless u know their Access Point's name & total settings ). What i m trying to say is this phone doesn't support auto-searching access point like several old samsung & motorola mobile set.Its really very very dissapointing.

Fourthly about the music phone . In this fact i have to dissapoint you that Nokia 5220 , Noika 5320 & the latest nokia 5800 are made of sme audio chipset . So if u expect that u will get better sound quality in this latest touch phone of nokia , then u r wrong . The sound quality is the same .
So music lovers wht u would spend 580$ after nokia 5800 , where u can get Nokia 5320(Which also supports N-gage gaming) at 230$ ? Its sterio speaker is so weak that it will not let you hear your call in a busy place .

Fifthly is Its operating system . Sad but true It doesn't support any software of its previous operating system . As a result u will have to buy each & every new software that only Nokia releases for this model . Trust me on this fact that this Symbiab OS 9.5 Touch Edition doesn't support any softwares of its previous edition .

Last but not the least is Nokia 5800's internal memeory . Though It gives a 4 GB card(Not 8 GB) with its package . Its Internal memory is only 80 MB . So if u r willing to download a movie in this phonr through the web then its impossible . Cause using the web uses the internal memory .After downloading your desired whole content then the phone will ask u whether u r willing to save it in your phone memory or memory card ? Which is really very heart-breaking .
The phone doesn't even support N-Gage games . It also lacks FM transmitter like Nokia N78 , N79 , N85 & TV broadcast receiver like N96 . its taklk time is only 3:30 hours .

So if you ask for my opinion then I will prefer you guys to go for NOKIA N810 . It is also a upcoming touch phone of nokia . Has 16 GB internal memory . It supports all video format(avi , wmv , mp4 , 3gp , dat , real media video etc) & all audio format (mp3 , aac , eAAC , wma ctc) . It also has FM transmitter & TV Broadcast receiver . It has all sorts of connectivity such as Bluetooth , Wi-Fi etc . It has 5 MP Carl Zaiss Optics camera with dual led flash . It captures video at 720*480 resolution at 30 Frames per second . It has 3.4 Inch OLED screen & most impressively a query keyboad , Has highest talktime (15 Hours) & standby time (1 month) in Nokia's History .
Its price is a little high (750 $). But I think Its worth the money in every possible way .

Im glad nokia took their time and announced a marvelous device. Remember how long they took to implement a xenon flash? When n82 came out it had the most powerful flash and killed all camera phones to date. Im sure they are doing the same thing right now. Thank you nokia. 5800xm, i will see you soon.

I've just seen the videos. Im really impressed. I don't know why guys are saying its slow. It appears normal on the videos. The screen looks really beautiful. All these features going for 279 euros? Yikes!! I aint a fan of touchscreen phones, but im starting to reconsider...

Ah too bad its the same old shitty User interface that nokia never changed for years. Ive been using Nokia for 5 years and so damn board with this UI. Such a disappointment

When will nokia ever get the brains to change from Symbians. I wish somebody manages to fit Android into this thing

Hi

Same as Nokia 7710 Just Specification Improved
No hardware QWERTY Keypad
That’s very hard to find the contacts and typing while Driving
Office files cant edit
After very long time Nokia Giving Touch Screen but some thing is Missing
Not So Bad Not So Good
Waiting for Nokia’s E-Communicator Series

TFT Touchscreen "16 million Colours!!!"
First I've seen. You can tell this will be a decent phone, coz Nokia dedicated themselves into making this handset. Thats why you havent seen a 8MP camera phone from nokia yet, but when it comes out you know it'll be another score for nokia
