fabio seblin, 27 Apr 2009Phone is very slow, can someone give a way about how to boost speed, nokia should have put an ... moreHi fabio. I am very happy when thinking how fast the 5800 operating system is. what sw you are using? pls type *#0000# to check the sw version. pls upgrade to ver 21.0025. That sw is very fast! Too many installed applications may also reduce the speed of the system....
Many prob of 5800 has been detected by the users. The topics of 5800 users showing that. But till now i dont get get prob topics from n82 users accept small screen n display. (which seems nothing compare with 5800). N82 much more better option them 5800. Why i have to pay more money for 5800? For problemed sensitive touch screen o poor cheap plastic styls, weak frmwr and weak software support and damn crap vga quality camera (named 3.15 mega pixels carl zeiss)? LOL.... Great bluff by nokia. The weak soft, scrap quality camera, plastic styls, weak frmwr, bad response wid touch screen seems DA NOKIA 5800 LIKE MAcLORIN car with the engine of bedford truck... Lol.......:p. I think no 1 can make any major hardwr n softwr complain against n82. Lastly, advice for nokia user... Dnt bye any new model or just released model of nokia phone. Bcoz most of the time NOKIA release new device with huge lacking. The usually fix the probs after the user recommand... So.... Use a bit older model for better performance. I SET UP MY MIND TO BUY N82. I dn wana sacrifice my money to b the EXPERIMENTAL GINIPIG OF NOKIA:P MONEY DOESN'T COME FROM THE RED HEAP OF MONKEY.....:P
THANKs u awl ppz for sharing the lackings.... :d...
Phone is very slow, can someone give a way about how to boost speed, nokia should have put an ARM 11 600mhz in this phone,I think I will sell mine and buy a 5630 ExpressMusic or an E55. What do you advise me to do??
I wish they had put an audio chip in n97,,but they are not so i could be with 5800 for forseeable future,,i think that the music xpress series give you all the goodies with fun but just lacking the cam quality but video is top notch.. We still have to remember this is a first product and the n97 is NOT the upgrade cause its n-series so maybe a 5900 or something maybe but you cannot much improve on this except for its little niggles,,wat a package for £219 on o2 at carfone..
The 5630 i think has upped its proccessor to 600 MHz so is this a sign of somethibg more powerfull later on..What i am saying is i swap fones all the time but at moment have nothing in sight to look to as this is the best spec yet for nokia considering widescreen touch,,excellent vid,,excellent music,,good battery ,,symbian,,and just about the lot bar decent cam..Now some may argue about n-series but with smaller screens, poorer music and twice as expensive music express wins hands down and is my fave new type of mobile fone...
does this phone able to use different pair of earphones?
i was able to play a 2nd hand 5800 at a mall & it seems to me the zooming preview of a picture is kinda slow! -__-" overall i tested is good. I have to practice double tapping like in computers. haha
5800 user, 27 Apr 2009yes, w960 got wifi. w960 has a better camera (imaging part only). but in any other parts, this... morei never had chance to use w960 cause of p990i fiasco and the dreaded uiq system,,but the p800/p900/p910 were masterpieces.
this shows some: Expired Certificate. while installing some apps and doesn't install them. does anyone know what to do?(by the way .I've done the date trick, NOT working.) :((((
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970yes, w960 got wifi. w960 has a better camera (imaging part only). but in any other parts, this phone is way way better.
I got my 5800 on Friday. great phone. no problems yet. used all apps and no lockups or probs yet. only thing is... you don't the spare stylus, stand, cover(pouch) in the box anymore. i immediately phoned nokia and they informed me that they don't ship the phone with these anymore. also the pc cable is only the same length as the phone (very short) and horrible to work with if your pc is inside a cabinet.
no office compatible software or acrobat reader either. stunning display though, even in direct sunlight. great sound, although it battles a bit to cope with bass sounds. stylus feels a little cheap.
beeing using this phone for 3days.. works great and the respond is good as well! nice!
This phone is the best out there to convert and watch movies on. It has an excellent screen and a very good viewing angle. Music quality is quite good and the stereo speakers are powerful.
Just DONT buy it for camera, its worse than a vga camera.
Also it has lots of bugs, needs more firmware updates.
Good news is that Nokia has already released firmware version 21. Its out in limited countries for limited serial number.
After this update, im sure all the bugs will be fixed, i hope the camera quality is fixed too as its horrible.
All in all, a great hit phone from Nokia.
susanathyn, 24 Apr 2009yes, you can transfer contacts from the samsung d900 to the nokia 5800. i just did it last nig... moreThnx for wateva u'v said. Bt actually um a student dude. Saved money to buy a new multimedia phone for long time. Some of my friends using 5800 from da releaseing date. Most of them give me ngtv report when i ask them bout da 5800. Sum say, its camera sux!! Vary inactive in low light. Sum says, softwr nt dat type of strong to deliver best quality service. Sum says, many option nt working properly lyk GPS. And most of them r nw facing sum unxpected prob with their screen. Sum of them says, nokia is now on experimental mode wid touchscreen phone. Nt that type of experienced. So they advice me not to take any new model device at very 1st time. These should b taken after a particular time as they revised and the probs will be removed. Sum user says, all the prob will b solved by softwr update. Bt i think how the softwr updat remove the prob of hardwr lackings of 5800. On the same position n82 user give me quiet well report about this set.. Sum of them faced prob with speaker issues. Bt xcept that, n82 ok and smooth. 5800 attracted me by its muzic menus and Larger screen. Bt da ngtv report of user make me scared of about this device. On the same time, n82 attract me for its smooth performance and impressive camera. Bt its older model. Altho all it has wateva 5800 provide in its configuration. U may xperienced many set one after one. Bt i dnt have any option lyk that. I have to select da device with the best value of money. As i say b4, um a student n saved money for long time to buy a multimedia phone.
Thank u all.
