I chose 5800 > 5530, bc of GPS, bigger screen, and Zeiss lens. Great phone for $225USD, and no issues except a couple of hangs in two months (batt in/out fix).
bad, 13 Oct 2009black colour or white colour better? plz suggest me....white
All of u guys who have taken 5800 can u please tell me the model no of the sennheiser headset that u have got.. Please tell soon..
i got a new 5530xm few days back and it works perfectly nice one from nokia a really value for money eventhough 3g is missing and also gps wifi makes this unit more useful in net browsing and it also install a third party application themes games etc.
bad, 13 Oct 2009black colour or white colour better? plz suggest me....black of course
I am telling to all as to why there is delay in releasing 5530XM in INDIA till now.
They released this phone in end August 2009 in Europe, Middle East [Gulf Countries] and some south east Asian countries. I Purchased this phone in QATAR 40 Days Back and i can tell you honestly and and frankly that though it is a good phone it has some software issues or you can say bugs which needed to be sorted out and solved before it could be unleased in the mass market in INDIA. I Had a problem whithin 8 days when the phone went Kaput??.Blank??.
I took it to the Local NOKIA Agency here and after keeping it for 3 days they called me and replaced with a new 5530XM saying that the previous one had a hardware problem....OK...agreed...
Again after 10 days the new one stopped showing missed/recieved calls log. You could view only Dailled numbers.
By now i was angry and fired the Tech staff. Now they said that it had a software problem. They made a hard reset and installed latest software now it is working OK. I suspect that they were working for a solution for this bug and they solved it in 45 days.
Now since last 45 days it price has dropped almost IRs 2200/- from its launch date.
What does it mean.
Some one here told me that Nokia will now dump all the unsold 5530XM from other markets to INDIA as because it is a Touch-Screen phone so no need to change key pad language button from other languages worldwide.
But even after my experience i can tell you that its a phone worth buying.
Camera - Good for me.
Video Camera - Good for me
WI-FI - Quick...with good scanning & Signal.
Music/Podcasting/Video viewing very good.
Games are Nice. and many many more.
SYMBIAN Phone- you can install free third party Themes-games -softwares etc.
Wobbly back cover...One day it fell from my hand and the the 1.Back cover 2.phone 3.battery were scattered in different directions. [ i applied my own solution i.e put 2 very small pieces of transperent cellotape sideways and its 100% OK]. Now...no movements.
SCREEN IS NOT GOOD in Bright sunlight...you have to squint your eye or move to shade to view details propery. [I have good eye sight and do not wear Glasses]. It looks very good and clear indoors though
This my honest review ....if you can overlook this 2 points then it is cheap at its price.
I do not regret purchasing it.
Hi I'm thinking about buying a touchscreen (never had one),my choice is between this one and samsung star (5230).considering that i use the phone only to make calls and texting, which one would you suggest me? here in italy there's a sizeable difference in price too: nokia 249€ samsung 149€!
is it worthy to buy this one??
I'm planning to buy one, but I'm hesitating.
bad, 13 Oct 2009black colour or white colour better? plz suggest me....white. the black looks cheap and boring but the white in blue looks great. I havent seen the white in pink though

I am using 5530 for a week still now no fun from games and apps,
Googling lot but no use.

NOKIA pls do something about the battery compartment it seems loose and could cause the phone to trip off. Ordinarily one might think it is a software defect. Good phone antway.

@mani, After you buy 5530 from singapore, dont sell your old phone, in case something happens to 5530 then you can revert back to old phone.
@AD Dude you are lucky.. 13.1k with sennheiser! WOW!. Here in goa one shop quoted 14k with sennheiser, unfortunately shop was too far from my house, so i settled with pack without sennheisser :(
@Rajeev Take the opportunity, go for 5800 with sennheiser offer. This offer will not last long. I tested 5800 with music system after connecting to AUX port, it sounds really nice! When you connect to phone, set the "Line Out" from options instead of "headset".
@5800 XM buyers:-
Some outlets may hide the Sennheiser offer. bcoz they take tht 1 for personal use. Beware of them.
Nokia India giving this offer till Deepawali. Jst tel them tht neighbour shope/store/place giving same price offer with senn. Headphone.
i bought this phone frm Mobile Zone @ Kochi (Mobile selling shops in this zone is more than 60, include 2-3 Nokia Dealers)
