Just a heads-up: You can now pre-order the black 5800 from NokiaUSA.com for $399, but you get 10% off. If you buy two (like I did for me and my wife), you get 15% off, which isn't bad. It's supposed to be available by Feb. 26 - less than two weeks.

5800 is China made and touch screen as all ready made by other chinese companies n market,worth 80$ max copy of iphone. We should learn lesson as i did until i bought for 500$ and fed up within two months, nor it is business oriented and feels awkward n office to use within 8 weeks its price as quartered.
This is a great fon. I have it for a month..
I have my own reviews and I don't think GSMarena's review is accurate.
TouchScreen Functionality: 8/10
Music: 9.5/10 The best I've experience.
Build quality: 6/10 I'm a little bit sad coz of a gap.
Camera: 6/10 Another downside.
Overall the phone is great.. Buy it I recommend it to all of guys..
aL!Ya, 14 Feb 2009m on the verge of buying this phone ...ba m kinda havin second thoughts...
i hav heard that d... moreI agree to the fact that the touchscreen UI is not very user frndly in 5800XM. You get stuck at many points and find no option except closing the application by the end (Red) key. A lack of BACK, PENCIL and some othet keys is felt during a lot of usages. Initially, even the lack of keyboard for punching numeric and characters is also felt. With me, I find that using the mini qwerty with fingers is the best choice. Seems a bit clumsy initially, but calibration of the Touch Screen as per your style of handling the phone makes the thing smooth.
Further, since S60V5 is to be updated with more revs, and Nokia is concentrating a lot on this TouchScreen, further revs are certainely going to make 5800XM UI more frndly.
If you still have any confusion, I would suggest you to consult more users before you finalise. I would not say GO FOR IT coz I myself found the things a bit -ve for a lot of days.

I am using a 5800XM and would say that there is no comparision between it and HTC 3400i. 3400i is a economy class phone without WiFi, GPS, and many other features. Your preference of 3400i over 5800XM is your personal preference. However, comparing a bike and a car on similar scales is not possible.
Pauli, 14 Feb 2009Hi! does anyone know why the price of this NEW phone is lower than that of the N95? I have a N... moreIt is because nokia company have decided to give to all nokia enthusiasts and to this people who are low in budget, that it, i have this phone is fast and it's grate!
Hi nokia 5800 Expert....
Its me Sandeep again.....sorry to ask u questions n disturb again n again.....
i hav heard abt NOKIA handsets made in finland,hungary,china,etc.... n heard best of all in quality wise is from finland..... is it so....??? is it true....????
one person had also written comments d same way...as below....
((((((((High-end Nokia phones are made in Finland.
For example, my mum's E71 was made there.
My older brother's 6500 slide and my 5220 were made in Hungary.
Tomorrow I'll check were my friend's 5800 was made.
Now I'm curious... I think it depends on the market they sell it in the end. Some people were complaining that their 5220 were "Made in China" and had lots of problems. Mine never had those problems.))))))))
so pls clear my doubt this tym also....
can i get some more extra features abt this gr8 5800 set? coz i've almost decided to tak this fone in a week..... can u gt me the approx price also in India,B'lore???
thanyou so much for the valuable time tat u hav spent to rply me....can u giv me ur email id or anyother form of contact to reach u..... ??? anyways thanks a lot.... hope u gt me a rply.... thans again.....
hi.. friends nokia 5800xm its too bad choice for young generation noting about music or tft touch screen too slow than htc handset main to htc ka p 3400i le raha hoon kam se kam window base to hai or touch screen bhi for htc you pay just 10499 + get a lg 285 hand set free schem avalible at one mobile!!!!!!!
Hi! does anyone know why the price of this NEW phone is lower than that of the N95? I have a N95 and thought of changing it for a new phone.
well i think the Nokia 5800 XPreess Music is the next Level and Genaration of the the iPhone 8gb and the 16gb but you i think the phone gets music and i think is only model that nokia at made (Touchscreen).
m on the verge of buying this phone ...ba m kinda havin second thoughts...
i hav heard that dis phone is a lil slow and the touch screen isnt very user friendly...
can anyone who is using this phone at the moment give me some valuable adv??
Anonymous, 14 Feb 2009so far so good, mine is version 11. but hesitant to upgrade to version20Update is always recommendated, no worry , go to upfate it
Resistive is way bettet than capacitive one! But i hope nokia will relaease one with capacitive one, to attract some users who like capacitive screen.
5800xm is not big if compared to n97, it is exactly the size i want my phone to be,
Cant wait to see more touch screen devices from nokia, so we nokian would be spoilt by choices:)
Izzat, 14 Feb 2009defntely iphone is the winner if compare on touchscreen..(im not iphone fans & i own 5800XM =)... moreiphone-scum bag, neither in touch screen is no way better than nokia 5800xm, because nokia 5800xm is much faster and sharper, bigger, it's wide screen to watch in confortable movies, you can paint on screen, it has writing recognition, DVD quality record, MMS and multitask..., so iphone non of this have, and you come here to compare with nokia..., how do you like that!
Go to your companion, they made believe you, and take your iphone garbage with you!
