Most phones won't "break" when you drop them. But it would get scratched up with dents. Durability? well it depends on how long you intend to use it for. Everytime i buy a new phone i told myself omg this phone is so nice (and expensive) i think i'll use this forever ... but ends up buying another one a year later. So if a phone is problem-free that year... God blessed!
Most phones are plastic anyways... and this is touch screen so don't expect this to be a smooth flat rock!
but i do love it. it's rigid in phone standards. and i think Nokia has done alot of research on making phones more durable... against normal wear and tear...
My previoius nokia classic 6500. i poured wine on the keypads. Still works! I think it was luck but honestly this is a good phone. It's touchscreen so u have to be more careful than the other ones.
Think about it. This phone is rather cheap compare to most decent touch screen smart phones. U are left with 2 options really. get this phone or get the iphone 3g which every other kid has. Remember also the iphone is already "old news" since it was launched last summer. If you really want an iphone i suggest you wait for the next one. (Steve Jobs ALWAYS have new stuff every year) Or get this phone if you really need one now. Yes there are a bunch of new better touchscreen smartphones announced and came out recently but honestly they are not gonna be in our hands until at least the end of the year. (and they are very expensive to start). Most of them probably 2x the price of this phone.... so u don't have many choices.

I can talk for 5 hours nonstop on this PHONE, your IPHONE can't.
Iphone? let's talk for 1 hour and if it hangs up wait two hours because u need to charge it. They can't have replacement batteries remember? So if ur planning to take your phone out the whole day you better not touch that touch screen much cause then u'll drain it all. Oh yeah the iphone has a million things to do, but you are allow to do all these PLUGGED lolz
Something the iPhone can do that this can't do.
I can take my iPhone to Europe OR America and use 3G in both places, the 5800 can't it's one or the other, depending on the model.
So this definately can't do everything the iPhone can do.
Anonymous, 26 Feb 2009i've got the phone...yeah mxit for the N95 8gig works fine.......Cool man. You have any problems using MXIT on it? How's is it in terms of ease of use and typing etc in terms of using MXIT on it or any other instant messaging apps for that matter?
do you think this phone is durable? especially its case. because it looks very fragile and breakable. i need answers because i'm still confused if i'll buy this phone or not. it's such a waste of money if this phone wouldn't last long. what do you think?

Which S60 V3 apps do work for this phone? And where can i get them from? Any GPS apps compatible with it at the moment?
i have this phone and only gripe is the camera isnt as good at night as my 'old' n73.
it doesnt come with doc viewer but you can get it from symbian website easily enough (you download it to the nokia suite on your pc or download it from option on the phone itself)
