I had a chance to spend some time with this phone at the Nokia store in NYC. Very nice. Glad I checked it out for myself instead of just going by what other people wrote. Looking forward to the US 3G version.

Anonymous, 28 Jan 2009You said the touch hd was 'a load of crap'. the touch pro is pretty much the same phone hahaha... moreread all my comments with your eyes open. i never said that hd was a load of crap. it was you who said that 5800 was a load of crap.
also i never was an iphone hater. i was in love with the iphone but it was way out of my budget.

killersmith, 28 Jan 2009i dont find you worth arguing, but i would like to tell you why your comments are a piece of c... more1. Well he asked the difference between a 5800 and an N97. Which the N97 is a smartphone so whats wrong with me saying the 5800 isn't a smartphone, yet has nearly the same features as aq smartphone does , he's obviously intrested in smartphones because he's asking about them.
2. The phone is made of cheap plastic on purpose yes you are correct, totally understand they have to cut costs in places... But it is another thing to make the phone feel cheap. The build is loose around the edges AKA N96. Now this is the high-end Nokia handset. Feels very cheap and is a very bad build (considering the price aswell), Hence alot of returns due to cracked screens etc, which im sure you'll find with the 5800. Cheap plastics do have side-affects. And personally I want a sturdy, solid, heavy phone. The guy was tossing up between the N97 and 5800 so I told him the difference. Obviously the N97, being the N-series is far superior.
3. It's not a proper stylus. It hangs off the edge like a tag on newly bought sunglasses (how irritating) and it's a plectrum!!!!!! plus you only get it with the 'comes with music package'. The screen IS too small for a full touch screen phone. People don't always use stylus'. For text input the phone is far too small for my fingers. and hard to navigate even with a stylus. You try my HD and you'll see what I mean. I didn't want this to turn into a battle between the 5800 and the HD, because to be frank, they're really not in the same league. For browsing the internet, in order to get a website displayed on the screen at an apt resolution the sceen needs to be at least 3.5''. Especially with finger navigation. And I will keep reffering to finger input as it is designed for that aswell, thats why they don't always offer a stylus, or a plectrum.
4. Your argument is that it's not trying to match the class of the iphone?!ha... So you just answered your own question. It doesn't match up to it! and this is coming from an iphone hater. (well i do respect it) the 5800 doesn't have 10x features. Ever heard of multi-touch? APPSTORE?!!! Bigger screen? Safari?? plus it can be jailbroken. Thus having almost every other feature that the 5800 has anyway. HSDPA speed on 5800 = 3.6mps. Iphone and HD = 7.2! plus it's 3.5G.
5. Text input is difficult because of the small screen you tit. I have around 10 different text inputs. So you're phone has more txt input methods than 'ANY PHONE IN THE WORLD', as you put it. This prooves to me that you know nothing and pull comments out of your arse.
I reckon you don't really have much experience with phones. I've been working (yes my occupation) with phones for around 7 years. And currently work for a phone retailer now. That means I have access to all of these phones and play and scrutinize them regulary. You've probably never picked up a HD, (probably an iphone as everyone has them). Yet you sit there and say it's crap. I never really cained the 5800, someone asked the difference between the two phones and i offered my opinion.
Now i'm not gonna go into the features of my phone vs. yours because my spec list goes on and on.
Although I am a fan of symbian and would like HTC to release a symbian product. Plus I would like a flash on my phone but I don't have it. But thats it! there will always be something you don't have on your phone which you want.
I've bought this phn from Singapore 2 weeks back..everything is fine..the sound is very good..touch is ok..but every now & then when I try to write any text it hangs & I have to remove the battery & restart the phn..I don't have any warranty coz I m living in Bangladesh now..don't know what to do..
features are good but that cheap plastc case realy blows it. Not to mention the stylus. i'm wondering if Nokia can make a good phone from features to cases this days
pls reply if there is any1 facing this problem asap thank you very much !
i got this phone 3 hours ago, when i take pictures and browse the internet, my phone hangs... and shuts down ! i hate this,, why this problem occur? any help? im bringing it back to the shop tomorrow to check on it
My retailer replaced thr memory card saying that creates the key board jamming error. Worked fine with the new memory card for few mins. Then the problem raised again (Even w/o the emmory card). The retailer kept the phone for further investigation. Will get a feedback tomorrow.
The Blue Spirit, 28 Jan 2009Dude always try to buy Finland made nokias. And make sure to play with the phone before buying... moreNot from Nokia agents in the county, the agent does not supply this model yet. I bought from another shop in Colombo, Sri Lanka, but with warranty.
