Noone says anything about GPS??? Is internet access a must for voice navigation?
the photos shot by this phone is much worse than a 2 megapixel camera phone. instead nokia n73 gives good quality of images, please opt it out if you are fan of clicking photos
i have also heard that you can download as many songs as you want for free in the first year, is that true? Cheers
Is Nokia Maps completely free and can it be used without an internet connection? Can I download maps of other countries for free? Also, does this software provide step by step directions? Thanks
Just look at spec and price of this phone, it worths every penny.
yes, I am sure nokia future into touch screen is very bright. nokia will have software multitouch and capacitive touch in future.
I have long been a fan of Nokia and PDA phones and unfortunately I had to let go of my Nokia the last time I bought a new phone which was a PDA. Now due to unfortunate events I find myself suddenly without a phone!
Anyway i've been thinking of getting an omnia (samsung) or an xperia (Ericsson) or a touch diamond or hd (htc). But when I saw this I thought to myself that this could be a good buy. So considering the specs of the other phones do you think this is at par or how does it compare? I'd love to get your opinions! Thanks!

is the touch sensityvity good? or it needs to be pushed dard in order to get a response.
Somebody said that he need to push the screen so hard that he doubts whether nokia has hidden physical buttons behind the screen or not... He thinks those buttons are getting pressed through the screen, and then only it responds...
nibras dewan, 16 Feb 2009 im getting this baby tommorow herd that its really goodyou won't regret it...really nice phone...haven't had any problem with my unit even though it is made in china...still working good and never experienced any problem
I havent compare two models of any phones from China and Finland together, But I dont think country will affect the quality, Nokia is a very reputed company and I think if any Chinese Plant is officially manufacturing Genuine Nokia phones, then they have to pass really strict quality checks of Nokia. So If you are buying a genuine Nokia from an authorised dealer, then U can be sure about the good quality even if it is manufactured in China.
Now a days Chinese local cellphone brands are making lots of fake handsets which looks like the genuine one. I have personally seen a "Sunny Ericsson" and a "Si-Phone" which are clones of a Walkman series and an iPhone. The si-Phone even have the apple logo behind it, but the bite in the apple is on the other way!
These fake clone-handsets have been widespread in market and thus making the image of the original Chinese sets poorer.
So if you are bying an original set from an authorised dealer, you dont have to worry about the Country.
i'm from Philippines .. and all (i think) nokia phones that are available here are those made in china.. lately, im hearing some bad reputations about china manufacturers that's why im having second thoughts on buying this phone. does "made in china" nokia phones are really have poor quality compared to those made in finland/hungary? all opinions are welcome. thanks
I'm thinking to buy a new phone. I bought the N95 on the first day it was on the market, but now I need and wants a new one. Could the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic be something? Likes the Lifeblog, so Nokia is a must..
