plz give feedback of ur battery backup.
i purchased this on last monday, i think itz battery is not gud enough. after first full charge, i got usage of only 12 hrs.(handling usage comes around 2-3 hrs only- here i took few pix, videos, watch vidoes, listen music, playing with mobile and very less talk).
yst.day i heard tht, few distributors change the original battery and put duplicate(it looks like original).
Any body knows hw to check 5800 battery, whether original battery or not? (i searched abt BL5J, but didnt get any details.)

Test features such as Calling (most important), Camera, Gallery, Music, Phonebook, Calendar, Games, Wi-fi if possible and some other apps. If there is any problem he can immediately return and get other one.
For 5800 the depth between LCD and top of touchscreen is more than that of my ipod touch (capacitive touchscreen). I had bought ipod touch in jan 2008 from US, it still is in good condition.
But more depth means extra protection for LCD. Dont worry, life of touchscreens is good as long as you handle phone carefully. Buy silicone case/leather case for protection.
@rajeev You went for Star or Star Wifi? Anyway congrats dude! But stay in touch. If you need java games/apps let us know. Try www.getjars.com
some apps/games from there may or may not work. You'll have to experiment.
@rooan Very good analysis. I agree with your view!

Gilly Rocket''', 14 Oct 2009Hey frnd.
I am eagerly waiting for 5730XM 5530XM, but no traces about the phone release and s... more@Gilly Rocket 5800 doesnt have kinetic scrolling F/w update as yet. I hope it comes soon. I bought 5800 abt 2 wks back and i'm happy with it. Has not hung. A few apps closed automatically, i guess its mainly app problems which i downloaded.
There is an offer: sennheiser headphones free with 5800.
Nokia 5730 is a fully qwerty kbd but its not a touchscreen. Screen size is small 2.4".
Nokia 5530 misses the 3G and GPS and has slightly smaller screen compared to 5800. Batt life will be lesser than 5800 due to 1000mAh batt.
As per @Mayank 5530 will be coming to india on 24th. Few more days to go. It means 5800 will be out of stock?!
Mani, 12 Oct 2009Must be true.. even nokia when they launched in aug, they said it will be out in the market ea... moreThe analysis is this, for Nokia India and China are the biggest markets. More so India they rule 56% of the mobile market.
To get a phone with problems is going to be a bad impact in this price sensitive market so they are making sure that the product coming in is fixed of all the bugs. The markets in which they have released the phone is exactly for this, most of these markets are not important or low sale markets for Nokia.
The other important fact is they would want the 5800 stock to finish as the replacement market will be then 5230 and 5530.
They may not come out with a phone like the 5800 i.e. GPS, Wifi in combo and splitting the services in btween 2 models they have addressed the cost factor and the choice factor for people.
People in India are not so GPS intensive but wifi has caught on in India.
So expecting the phone by October end would not be out of place
I purchased 5800 yesterday. While playing with it, i am now seeing a "E" symbol and two opposite direction arrow lines instead of GSm symbol. Can anybody can ttell what's that and how to restore back my original setting?
I'm choosing between this phone or Samsung Star WiFi
I know about the OS difference, what I want to know is the touch experience... is 5530XM better?
i think buying 5800 is good idea bcoz they are giving ,snhesr headset, and blue tooth and nokia scratch card in that minimum 1000 rs many are getting so if we minus all this offers then then its coming for 10,000 nokia 5800 not bad guys what u say,,,
bad, 13 Oct 2009black colour or white colour better? plz suggest me....if this model, better u chose white colour more classic.
bad, 13 Oct 2009black colour or white colour better? plz suggest me....white is way better
jugal, 16 Oct 2009NOKIA 5530 is avilable in mumbai at the rate of 12-12.5k.is it true ..that nokia 5530 is available in mumbai plz say me jugal....
Ultimately a very good phone but also there must be 3G facility availabe. Any way a Very good Phone.

3. It will come at the end of the month but not sure
Asked him about international warranty which he said NO, but service is always available. Just checked with him the cost of the screen alone if it is damaged which he said would be around 4.5K INR.
Asked him about the life of a touch screen which he had no specific answer, he said its will come for long time.
Does any one know what is the life of a resistive screen. Obviously it should have cause resistive screen is two layers of film with small gap, and so at one point of time it would fail.
