I purchased this phone a few weeks ago from a online store in the US, and so far it has been the best phone I have had (when it comes to nokia’s), battery life is very good reception is very good also (I work in a office with really bad reception t-mobile) when most phones only get 1 bar or less this one is from 3 bars down to 1 bar. I have owned a Motorola slider and nokia 6120 classic, and the N72.
Great RF reception
Volume on speakers is loud and clear (when you play MP3’s and take calls on speaker phone)
Battery life is great (can go 2 days without charging)
Web browsing is fast and good
User interface is fast
Case is made of rubber so you don’t have to worry about scratches (6120 classic you have to worry about scratches)
Camera, needs some improvement
Touch screen takes some time getting used to
Lack of software like GPS maps (I use Google maps) or step counter for working out etc.
More games (only comes with 2 games)
Maybe needs to be a bit more thin
No office applications (adobe reader or office document reader) the nokia 6120 has this installed already.
But overall I can live with the problems.
I actually have been using an N95 8gb for some close to 7 months and thought it was the best..I got 5800 2 days and i tell you its the bomb..i just love both phones..loud and so easy to use... I love NOKIA!!

Remind me to avoid your shop.
Yeah i got one and the keyboard is really easy to type on. You can gave a normal phone keyboard, full qwerty, mini qwerty and handwriting recognition + you can do it with the screen rotated either way
It has both a QWERTY, normal Alphanumeric and handrwriting recognition methods of input. fucking awesome phone in every way!!!
ahmeed, 24 Feb 2009how to delete what i wrote in msg by handwritingOn the iPhone you swipe a diagonal down the screen then back from right to left, that deletes all the handwriting, or you can select the letter or word you want to delete then swipe back, right to left.

pooni, 24 Feb 2009hi, before owning 5800 i had n79,n82, i m addicted to 3.5 mm audio jack and i listen to music ... moredear pooni
your phone will automatically turn off music while you have a call and then will turn on music again but if you want to dat manually you should look at icon bar which will show on your phone while you have a call
Anonymous, 22 Feb 2009do you think the case of this phone is heavy duty? or is it easy to be damaged?i think its heavy duty and wont break anymore
To be honest I am NOT a Nokia fan and switched to other manus over the years but I am defo considering going back.....This is THE BEST music phone I have seen in a long time (and I manage a leading mobile phone shop.)
The speaker/sound quality is absolutley awsum, definatly no need for external speakers.
The touch screen is quick and simple to use.
The only slight downside is the camera, being only 3mp, but as with most phones, having exceptional camera AND music facilities is a rarity so it depends which is the most important to you.
Overall its a BIG CONGRATS to Nokia...finally competing with the big boys :)
pooni, 24 Feb 2009hi, before owning 5800 i had n79,n82, i m addicted to 3.5 mm audio jack and i listen to music ... moreHi Pooni!
You must connect the inbox control part to your device 3.5mm input and to the control part you can connect your headset. The control parts has the microhone.
