i work in the carphonewarehouse and weve jut recieved delivery of this immense phone i highly recommend it compared to the iphone!! and at a small price of £15 100 mins unltd txts 24mnth contract u cnt go wrong! once again nokia have done it
I bought this phone from Muscut. Made in Hungery. When i touch "BACK" (In Menu or contacts or anywhere) to go back the phone responds wrongly. I feel some touching area of My phone (lower right side-- of about 0.25 inch) is not responding.
I'M REALLY SHOCKED.
IS far Better than any windows based mobile i have seen.The interface is refreshing and touchscreen is amazing.
Hi, This phone is not available in black color. No doubts that speakers and screen resolution is great.
Camera is the worst I have ever used in my entire life.to much of grainy images.
The music quality is just good.Built is not good.
earphones are below average.
Touch screen is awesome and works great.
I agree. But keep in mind that the pixels alloud you to zoom more or les, you can print a bigger or smaller picture: but it dont implicate a better picture definition
Ernesto, 29 Jan 2009Whath problem do U have with the camera of this incredible device. I use to have a P990i with ... moreYoure right it is alot to do with the lens quality. But the pixels definatley come into it!! You can't rule that out.
If you were to just view the picture on your phone then it's hard to tell the diff between a 3.2mp and a 8mp because of the small screen resolution.
But if you blow the picture up. Thats when you notice the diffenecene as the pixels are spread out across the whole size of the image. So this is definatley a big part of image quality.
Whath problem do U have with the camera of this incredible device. I use to have a P990i with a 2 MP camera and i can tell U that the pictures were great. Another example is teh OMNIA with its 5 MP camera. One friend of mine and the pictures taken with it were so poor. What really matters is the lens quality, not how many pixels the camera have
i just dont understand..... as i said i got it on monday(greece) and havent left alone for a moment. installed apps, themes, games from different sites and it works just fine. just a few very minor bugs sometimes. i think its great. and personally i think its better than windows mobiles. i feel that it was well worth the cost (350euro) and i got it blue and it was updated with the last firmware. o, and no earpiece issue either...
whoever wants to buy it go out and buy it. i had my doubts reading these posts before i bought it. but im very happy with my device. as i said NO PROBLEMS AT ALL!
Plus check this deal in carphone warehouse:
£15pm on O2 100mins ultimited TXTS!!!!
And a free phone
WOW! definatley worth a look.
Limited time only so rush to the stores!!!!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2009are you mental? the 5800 is terrible compared to the iphone, you are just one of these people ... moreYou mean are you mental? The iphone's not an internet phone, it's a smartphone. Thus making it an all-round performer. It should excell at nearly every function. Fact: It doesn't. Although Safari is amazing, the best browser around (until Firefox is released). And to be fair iphone specialize in sound quality, ever heard of an ipod!! The iphone uses adapted technology from the ipod. Now this does bring convincingly good sound reproduction (one of the best in a phone), although there's a catch if you're going to playback through the inbulit speaker, as the sound volume is very very low. Not good enough i'm afraid Apple. Maybe this is because you can't replace the iphone with a new battery, therefore loud sound levels would drain battery levels on a long term basis also.
Fact is the 5800 in built stereo speakers are seriously brilliant. They are loud, crisp and packed with bass response. And in STEREO!!
This is an amazing mid-range phone. And if you haven't got the money to fork out for a top of the line handset and want a phone with alot of functions then definatley consider this phone. (please stay away from LG mid-rangers, you will only be dissapointed when you try this phone)
CPW employee mentioned the lag in certain menu's. This does occur, but which touch screen doesn't, apart from the iphone. I was actually quite impressed by the fluidity of the UI. Multi-tasking may cause lagg, as it doesn't have a particulary fast processer. Maybe he was multi-tasking alot.
I work for carphone aswell, and i don't agree whatsoever with his statement of save your money and time and leave this alone.
If your looking for a top of the range handset, then yeah this isn't the one for you. But otherwise, read into it more, go and play around with one in store, i think you'll be impressed
this phone comes with 3 different colors which are : blue ,red and grey..this phone is destinated for music lovers only..it has the greatest sound ever made by nokia(inner and outer)...simply its awsome!!!keep going nokia u are the best geniun company!!
I Have This Phone And Its AMAAZING, I Had The N82 But This one Is Much Better, Everything is Amazing!
Pao pao, 29 Jan 2009I HATE IPHONE USERS!!! YOU guys make yourself so dumb to say that Iphone is better than the N... moreare you mental? the 5800 is terrible compared to the iphone, you are just one of these people who look at a mobile and if it dont have a good camera with loads of mega pixels then you class a phone as sh!t. your comparing to totally different types of phones, the iphone is an internet phone and the 5800 is a music phone so there is going to be huge differences. and if your someone who only likes music phones then your going to find the iphone boring, but that dont make it sh!t. the iphone is the best at what it dose, being a mibile internet device. the 5800 is a music phone however it is terrible at being a music phone, its as simple as this, the 5800 was not made well, the iphone was.
Dont waste your money and time guys. to start with the touch can seem slightly laggy. there is 1 key flaw, when you try and take the stylus out of the back you find yourself removing the back plate of the phone. not a good start. Second that the menu button on the handset (which i had to look up) dont even work you press it over and over but nothing happens., this is either down to a software fault or just a general bad phone. a good design nice a light. everything you would need in the box. the sound quality is good, the speaker is realy loud. almost better than the iphone but not. comes with pre loaded music. camera isnt good but then it is a music phone tho for a 3.2mp i would have liked it to look better (must have had cut backs in nokia due to the Finacial loss over the past year). the video play back is ok. The software is slow but the look of the theme is simple and not effective.
over view. Bad news i can see having a few returns on this 1
Has anyone got this phone in black color? coz i cant find one.by the way i live in saudi arabia i really want this phone in black color.
these handsets have just turned up in my stock and i have had a play on one for the first time. im a huge nokia fan, always have been, however this is the first phone made by nokia that i would actually refuse to sell, my co-worker has already got stressed out and lost his temper after having it in his hands for less then 5 mins. the screen is far to small and the touch is not that responsive. me and my friend actually had to find the users manual to work out how to use it, thats the first time i have ever had to refer to the users manual with any phone, if this phone is anything to go on for the N97 then i am very very worried that the N97 will be just as bad and after the flop of the N96 i was really hoping nokia would turn things around with the 5800 and the N97. HUGE LET DOWN
