i gave good reason also for tht
& it entry level touch phone
which is made 2 fight w... moreabt the negative point..
star can only display 256K colors with resolution of just 240x400 and 5530 has a 16m color display with 360x640 resolution..
so obviously screen of 5530 is better..
.1" wont matter when u have such good screen..
Anil, 20 Aug 2009Even after u upgrade to latest version u will not get the new features on 5530. Anybody can qu... moreWhen did i say all that will be there?
I already said besides the homescreen and the kinetic scrolling everything will be there in 5800.
And the homescreen will not be very difficult to get. The next firmware update can easily put that or it can also be hacked.
Kinetic scrolling may or maynot come but im more than happy even without kinetic scrolling.
If it comes is a huge bonus and if dosnt then i don't mind.
And yeah the 5800 is super quick after the upgrade.
I have the phone. Dont question me
eshaan, 20 Aug 2009All the bugs are overrated.

There is no kinetic scrolling, 20 contacts, new home screen in 5800.....
eshaan don't provide worng info that with latest version ie v30 u are having all new features of 5530 in 5800.
Yes 5800 may be lill faster & most of the existing bugs may be fixed but noway u will get the new featuires of 5530 in 5800......

It's as fast as the 5530 now and if there is not too much price difference you should take the 5800 for sure

Only thing missing in the 5800 is the kinetic scrolling which might anyway come for the 5800.
And yeah the theme and homescreen of the 5530
eshaan, 20 Aug 2009If that is indeed the price and you have 3G connectivity also then you should buy the 5800But I am hesitant in buying Nokia 5800 because of too many bugs but I prefer Nokia 5800 than 5530 because its complete package. But I also envy the kinetic, 20 contacts, new homescreen, sleek size and design og Nokia 5530 =(

Here in our country (Philippines) Nokia 5800 XM reach the 13,800 price from 17000. Nokia 5530 XM is still not available in our country. With the price of Nokia 5800 XM (13,800) do you think it will go up again since Nokia5530 XM is between 11,000-13,000????
Anil, 20 Aug 2009Guys,,,as we already waited so long than y can't for another two weeks or may be less....
I t... more
i gave good reason also for tht
& it entry level touch phone
which is made 2 fight with Star.
So it spec r kind of same just few advantage
* OS is Symbian OS
* Led Flash in cam
* Kinetic Scrolling
* Contact bar :P
* 3.5 MM jack
* 4GB card which is not there in Star ....
So price should b around 12k
Caz start cost 8.5k
Negative points in this
* Star has 3" screen & 5530 has 2.9"
thatz it i think :D
Are there any of u who previously use touchscreen phone other than nokia and then buy 5800? If u did, how is the touchscreen quality between the two?
It seems like no one is answering me.... :(

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Guys,,,as we already waited so long than y can't for another two weeks or may be less....
I think it will be available all over world by AUG end....
Yaah even i think the price will not be high...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970as It is told 100 time
bY end of this month it coming 2 India
Rizwan, 19 Aug 2009I dont think 5530 will do well as samsung star did in market..Samsung Star did well mainly because of the price and looks (subjective). It has slightly bigger 3" screen. Its got a good camera (but without autofocus and no flash). People who are looking for smartphones will not go for Samsung Star.
Anil, 20 Aug 2009Hey u r rite u should return 5800 & get 5530...Whats the meaning of having 5800 w/o 3g. Anyway... more5530 should cost less than 5800
I blv it should b in 12.5k ...i will give u reason y ..?
* Small Screen 2.9" compared to 5800 3.2"
* Single Led flash compare to 5800 2 Led Flash + 5530 has no Carl Zeiss optics.
* No 3g & GPS
* Just 2 Speakers
* - Proximity sensor for auto turn-off it not there but gsm arena has told it there.
* Just 4Gb card in plc of 8Gb as in 5800
* The CPU is same for both of the phone now..SO this show tht it software thing & can b clocked if wanted..so no cost of Hardware thing needed.
& still few more reasons 2 cost less
