spider007, 07 May 2009dont tell lie men. Nokia 5800 is cool phone. it really fantastic.
hey bro, u haven't used SONYERICSSON w595, have u??
first use that set for music then u tell me who's lying.
last week i lost my Sony Ericsson W595 cellphone, i thought 5800 Xpressmusic would be a gr8 replacement. but after using this set for a week, i can see that W595 is a much more better set than nokia 5800. damn man!
I was using Sony Ericsson mobile and a month back I bought 5800 for Rs. 19200/-. I always tend to do the compare both the phones and I am not really that satisfied with the features available. 5800 is high end piece but it has lot issues. It looks like they have released it with untested Beta Software.
1. The touch screen goes off whenever it likes. We can hear the ring but canít see the numbers.
2. If you get a call while dialing a number, the incoming number gets displayed under the same name which you are dialing.
3. If you use multiple applications at the sametime like FM, games and phone book it hangs. You need to restart it again to bring it to normal.
4. Some times the side key-guard switch wonít work properly. In this case even the power switch may also wont work. Only option is to remove the batter to restart it.
5. I have not experienced this but I heard that for some caller Ids the photo doesnít appear.
We can buy it for show-off but I donít think this is the mobile for that worth the price.
I donít understand how such a big company released this mobile with the issues. It is not really fair on their side.

Hi ther,, while upgrading the firmware.., it is recommended that you have a complete back up especially the contacts , calendar and notes.. you can perform the operation without the memory card so u dont hve to backup ur memory card.. While upgrading the firmware, the contacts and notes ARE DELETED..
