I want one of the new Symbian based touchscreen phone Nokia 5800, Samsung Omnia HD or Sony Ericsson Idou, But Nokia has stopped me buying one of these, it is only a small problem that could be fixed if Nokia would only listen to users, the problem is the menu/contact scrolling it is completely illogical, this would totally frustrate any user.
Please Nokia issue a firmware fix & change for the next version.
After exactly 30 days of use, my 5800's screen has gone blank. Took it to the nokia repair shop and they say it'll take 3-4 weeks.
dont believe everything you read here try it yourself 1st and then decide

You need to repair it yourself! Far cry from the iPhone! Shame on Nokia! Two years since the iPhone and still nowhere near it!
According to the news, even US version of 5800 were faulty.
asia, 02 Mar 2009i phone are for clumsy people without a proper human brainI agreed.....they are mad in judment of mobile technologiy, All the NOK's Product are come with advance technolpgy.
As Much as Nokia 5800 looks good and everyone excited to see the first Nokia Touch Screen is out. It is not as good as it looks. The quality of Pacakge is cheap looking feeling holding it. Is not like or feel like holding an expensive phone. It is plastic phone. I Bought several 5800 phone in Thailand around end of November for me and and as gift for several friends.
First major problem ear phone. They were all defected and had to change. Some was okay for while and some keep having the same problem still. Basicly sound go up and down or alot of statics. Next problem is that for typing a sms for touch screen is not like Iphone that you can type your message quickly. It lags and make alot of eror. and in last you ca nnot find any applications for this version of Nokia 5800. There is a new Samsung Omnia HD coming in next few months with same upgrade program which should be a great phone. Looking forward to see it soon.
I finally sold mine and replace with my Old E66 which was happy before. Not saying I owen 2 Iphone which I am very Happy with. Hope my comment help you and rush to quick to buy this phone.

if your pay 80 bucks for that being the apple care i think you just got kicked in the ass
Kyuubi, 28 Feb 2009Stop trying to twist up everything about this phone nothing is wrong with the battery... I kno... moreExcept when my wife got her iphone 3G, she was TOLD by the salesperson regarding the lack of this and that, and "she made the decision" to purchase the phone anyway.
A friend of mine bought a 5800 from the exact same shop yesterday was NOT warned about the earpiece problem.
The whatever "problems" you mentioned still made the iphone "works" as a phone, while a phone with faulty earpiece volume doesn't make a phone works as a "phone".
One would then need to spend at least an hour, be squeezed with a bunch of....with smelly body, just to "drop off" a 5800 to be repaired...likely for more than another hour, was what the "almighty brand" offers as an extra "feature" for users of 5800.
