Yehya, 13 Apr 2009Hey could some one plz tellme if there is qwerty keyboard slide or no ?No, there's no physical QWERTY keyboard, it's the touch one (like iPhone).
This phone is actually nothing interesting and new. I'd call it a "low-end touchscreen" phone, cause that's what it is. It does have more than respectable price tag, and it's definitely not worth it. And now I'll try to explain such a negative opinion:
1. This phone has nothing that the even the first iPhone that came out in 2007 doesn't have, it lacks innovation and FUN-features.
2. Music experience is not that good. OK, the quality is OK, but navigating through the music menus feels a little bit slow and "heavy".
3. Browsing through menus is quite confusing: up until the 3rd sub-level, you need to tap only once to open selected thing. But, then you suddenly have to tap twice to open selected thing, and tapping once only selects it.
4. The "REAL" GPS functionality (turn-by-turn and voice navigation) is not available without additional (expensive) purchases.
5. Accelerometer functionality is also quite stupid and confusing: it actually works only in some menus and applications, and in some applications it actually rotates automatically, whether you rotate the phone itself or not...
6. And finally, it doesn't look nearly as impressive as the iPhone: it is much narrower, and the screen is much less spacious than the iPhone's...

kotta!, 13 Apr 2009Ok, here goes my friend muppi bout dis phone...ya u r right these RISC processors are pretty s... moreWell kotta, first learn proper English, and second i don't see that you really understand much about technologies and OS mobile systems!
This nokia 5800xm is 369Mhz, but it's very powerful compare to other 630Mhz CPU's, in rendering video graphics, multitask operating system simultaneously, handling video-recording at high-quality 640x480 or WVGA 640x360 at 30.fps 16.8m colors, that WinMobile CPU is up to 630Mhz and it can not do more than QWGA 320x240 size at 12 or 20.fps recording videos, and iphone scum can't handle at all video-recording, it will be very choppy if it did, that's why they was not interested at all to implement this video-recording isue!
With this nokia 5800xm, you can emulate and run windows or old lovely Amiga500 that powerful device it is, and you can play it's games sometime they was so popular and funny to play!

monkeyy lover, 13 Apr 2009Hey, im thnking on getting this phone. Is the camera rly that bad???HEY FRND
If you're looking for a perfect camera phone,so choose one of the high end nokia Nseries phones such as n73 n95 n78 but if u look for a great music phone..buy 5800
Camera still looks good in day shots outdooor or indoor
i've been ''nokia phone problem solver'' since 2003 but this is my first touchscreen phone. As time goes you can get use to it's procedures.
SO HAVE YOUR CHOICE AND CHOOSE A MOBILE WHICH SUITS YOUR NEEDS.
i'll start and will never end.
This phone is great believe me...but just for young fancy people . it only has very little drawbacks but this phone's package is worth it....camera isn't that great but not bad at all.Speaker quality is marvelous,awesome similar to music king n81. i still have my n81 with me.
Touchscreen scores 8.9/10 but its really cool...this phone beats iphone for sure in all aspects.buy in red looks gud
i'll soon post my review on youtube if you guys dont believe me.. take care all have a nice time.

I took it back to Nokia and they actually replaced the whole thing. This is one of the major faults on some handsets, so anyone of you has it then immediately take it back for replacement.
This phone is not that bad...its quite an entertaining to use but full of bugs.
This is good as a secondary phone but dont use it as first phone as its not reliable yet.
But i love watching movies on it.....much more fun than anything from Apple.
monkeyy lover, 13 Apr 2009Hey, im thnking on getting this phone. Is the camera rly that bad???Yup i have it and it is bad in dark shots but for taking pics in well lit areas where flash is not needed it's up to par

kotta!, 13 Apr 2009Ok, here goes my friend muppi bout dis phone...ya u r right these RISC processors are pretty s... moreiphone has more than 630 mhz cpu and 5800 aint that slow like n70 it takes 39 sec to start n70 but 5800 needs less time and if u want to go to menu u have to wait like 2 min and i belive that n70 dosent have 209 mhz cpu for sure.
kotta!, 13 Apr 2009Ok, here goes my friend muppi bout dis phone...ya u r right these RISC processors are pretty s... moreYou must not know anything about processors let alone the operating systems within the iphone or the Nokia 5800. OSX is native to a PC and has been crammed to the iphone and is a bloated system thus needing the extra speed. Nokia has been using Symbian's OS for years and has optimized it heavily to be used on the lower clocked CPUs, and thus does not need a fast CPU to run.
With the use of my Nokia 5800 there is no delays in using 3rd party software, plus I can have over 8 applications running at any single time. So to claim the processor is weak compared to the iphone shows how little knowledge you have with the product.
Ok, here goes my friend muppi bout dis phone...ya u r right these RISC processors are pretty slow...ITS time 4 nokia to change from dese ARM processors ....They mus implement much more faster processors.....In N70 sme 209 MHZ processor is used while in 5800 330 MHZ Phew...wat are dese guys triyin to do....
Actually dont try to invest money on dis...W8 4 sme time or go for another STABLE Phone...
I must say that you r really bcomin BETA testers wen ur buyin dis crap...Or d I phone is far better...
Plz dont compare it wid Iphone ..as the processors are diffetrrnt (it has 630 Mhz) So....No matr wat 3rd partee application u use..da touch function would be smewat slow
