about one month using this phone....
The stupid things about this 5800, the gallery can't be categorized.... this 5800 display all pictures which you have.... pfff.... you can't select from a folder or make a tag....
same thing with the multimedia player.... will list all of your songs, difficult to select it to playlist since all songs mixed in huge list.... damn!
can't play/send one folder of songs in explorer to be played or queued in media player.... annoyed....
the rest is great.... cool.... i hope nokia can release software update to make more smart gallery/media player....

No problems..... & it is a good phone...If u have any problems update the firmware. Don't buy any new relaese phones if u are not aware of software problems. Software bugs are common on all brands especially when they are releasing new os versions.... I was an SE fan and i got worst experience from SE.

First of all, Nokia does not have to recall anything.
If your 5800 is having problems, just take it to the nearest Nokia Centre and they will fix it by changing the faulty earpiece (yes, they's received order to do it...).
As for the price:
Where the hell do you live???
I've never seen it selling for more than 369EUR (unbranded and unlocked) or 319EUR (branded and locked to a carrier). And I travel a lot to different European contries every week...
Mind you, when a producer states a price, it is always "before taxes and subsidies" - after that, the final price in each country depends on the specific taxes they apply (VAT and so on...)
I've bought an unbranded blue 5800 for one of my sons and it really is a nice set:
Responsive, fast, the GPS (not that he needs it) works like a breeze... only the camera is not that good but even so, it is better than the 5220's 2MP he had before.
I still have to compare the photos to those from my E71, but I believe they have the same quality - not as good as the ones from my old N73.
Samrath, 10 Mar 2009Its good . And i m glad to have it . U guys know wat? This is better than apple iphone 3G.Thaxxiphone is diffrent Nokia only good low end phone what u find good in this phone i not understand same cost 1000 time better you find samsung omniya
I haven't purchased ir yet, but I am already crazy about it. I tried it several days ago, and i really found it so attractive. It really met my all expectations and I can't wait to buy one. Thanks again GSMArena for fabulous reviews and another throughout visual help choosing a phone.
Nokia has recently been known to cheat their customers by suplying faulty handsets and although it is known to them they dont bother to recall the device.Not one person in all the forums posted on the net have not had a problem with the device,
after only a couple of days of use of the phone.To add to the insult, the nokia care centres dont Care!The nokia handset goes for 399euros and in some shops go for 500euros across europe,
after they stated in numerous shows and online videos that the handset would go for 279 euros.
After all that hype for an inferior product not worth selling as a toy,
nokia should recall all the handsets and refund the peoples money.
In this day and age , during the most horrific economic crisis the world has ever seen,for nokia to do something like this is unbeleivable!
