Got the phone for 3 weeks. The only problems so far the front speaker contact everybody mention... fixed though.
Incoming voice sound is ok but could be louder. Camera stuttering (short pause/lag) during video shoot when moving it around.
Started to get freezed few min after each restart. Reset to factory setting helped.
Not fast multiply item selection. Only one by one from options or select all. Makes it hard to manage music. And overall s60 music player like always annoying with this auto sorting.
And few other minor convenience of UI problems that would be nice.
I have the same doubt that Nick has:
Should I buy the 5800 instead N95-1??
Thanks in advance
Anonymous, 04 Feb 2009where i can get bulbs for nokia headset???Go and bay on the shop man, they don't cost much 10-15€, but then you get wery god and loud sound quality? Remember the bulbs you can put inside your ear, not the ordinary ones!

Probably the problem is in "message center number", as "Surjit" suggested to you. Try to locate it in Message settings. Ask your service operator for the correct message center number and correct it. I had once the same problem with another device (sometimes it is not saved automatically in that place from your SIM card...)

A friend of mine bought 5800 a couple of months ago, and concerning the music quality he is extremely satisfied - he says it is better than i-pod's (I suppose i-pod and i-phone have the same mp3 player...) As far as the rest of the features, I think that for this price, you can not get more. The only thing I would prefer for 5800 to have is a beter resolution camera (at least 5mp), but do not forget it is not a high end device. I will buy it soon...

i am planning to buy 5800.
is the camera as good or better than that of n73?
how long does the battery last?
i thought the stylus is odd for its kind.
Thank you very much.

i just bought a new nokia5800,and i also have the n95,,,i feel its as good as n95,the best thing which made me grab this 5800,,,is its unbeatable video display of movie and mp4 music tracks and trailors,,,,,,it takes you for a ride,cam as good as n95,,with an easy to use touch pad,,which is very quick in response,and the design,its awsum,,the thing disapointing ,,is only its inferior quality of alphabetic display,,but overall,its worth for the price
