You'd be surprised how durable they are, they are also very reliable since the 2.2 update they hardly ever crash, holding the power off and middle key has the same effect as removing the battery.
Did you know you can hotswap the SIM on an iPhone?
What other phone can do that?
A million defective speakers, speaks for itself really at least I can hear people on phonecalls and haven't had to take a new phone to a repair centre.
btw to that knucklehead who posted that mobile review link
forgot to read this with his bent -eyes huh?
"and if you are about to buy a 5800 XpressMusic, but wouldn’t like to visit Nokia’s service center at least once, then pay close attention to the phone’s production date – it seems that all units manufactured in February are defect-free"
sam, 28 Feb 2009Guys wait for some time before u buy this set...i m a big fan of Nokia, i bought Music express... moreyeah.. i would have believed you if I didnt have nokia 5800!
I had the same earpiece problem.. i got to the nokia care centre and they did it 5 min! trust me 5 minutes! and i am in Mumbai, India , u can imagine the rush at a nokia care centre here.. 1 billion ppl and most of them are nokia users (india is one of their biggest market)
so this is my story y i bought nokia 5800
i wanted a touch screen phone, with wifi, 3g, a good camera , with video recording, from a good brand, cheap enough and that has blue tooth so i can share stuff with my mates!
so which phone do i choose? ofcorse fuking nokia 5800 there is no competition here! phones like iphone do not have half the stuff mentioned up there, blackberry storm dont have wifi, omnia is fuking 38000 rs here and nokia 5800 just 21000 when i bought it back then!
touchscreen is capacitive.. and it is the best capacitive touchscreen yet! music on this phone is awessssssssome! about the earpiece problem..--- this was just on the earlier phones .. and again they repaired it in 5 min.. i havnt had a single prob on my phone since then!
Forgot to mention to one more thing about Nokia 5800 the touch screen is not at all impressive. they need to work on touch screen technology more...so please think before you buy it...first i thought its an iphone killer but after using 5800, iphone and 1phone3g is much much better than 5800..i just dont want you to feel bad after buying 5800...
Guys wait for some time before u buy this set...i m a big fan of Nokia, i bought Music express 5800 and its already started giving trouble... when i talk on the phone, suddenly i cannot hear what other person is saying...since i have warranty i sent it to Nokia center for repair and its been 1 week and they r still fixing it. The camera is really bad and the camera of Nokia 5610 is much better than 5800. so wait for some time until they fix all the bug of the 5800.

I have ha... moreI own a E71-2 since it release I did experience a few restart but never anything major also it work flawlessly with firmware 2.0. I have friend who use iPhone 3g and they have weird crushes especially during web browsing and some crush is so major that the nothing he can do until contact tech support and work on it in front of computer.
when nokia crash the worst case is to pull off the battery for few second than it come back to normal again.
I am getting a 5800 only because I surf internet on phone all the time and bigger screen + touch is much easier on my deteriorating eye sight

I have had an n95 (slider broke almost immediately), e71 (crashes and restarts randomly), e66 (battery lasts about 1 hour) and e51 (this is the best Nokia product except the screen is so small). Overall, none of these phones are a match the iPhone in overall performance. I travel constantly for business and am always have reception. i am not particularly careful and its durability seems fine.
I guess your experiences are different, but my phone will stay an iPhone.
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2009I'm not getting this. I'm getting the N97. Either Color will be fine with me. I'm saving up... moreWho wouldn't want the N97 when compared to this phone?
N97 is a higher end phone, it has even later technologies, when it comes out it's gonna be like $900 USD. where is this one is a mid-low range phone priced half of the N97.
Honestly, the 5800 came out in December 2008. I think the N97 won't be out until like fall of this year. That's the difference. A YEAR difference! and Half the price!
gam28toronto, 27 Feb 2009i didn't even make the first guess. what do you mean guess again? Can you make sense pls? FYI... moreI'm pretty sure riv is using the Vertu constellation. It's full of features for a great affordable price. (Scarcasm intended)
I'm not getting this. I'm getting the N97. Either Color will be fine with me. I'm saving up for it now.
