i bought this great mobile 4days ago and the only thing to say "its great" but i want to ask about the touch screen , is it easy to scratch
some one using this device long enough can tell me
It's a good phone but lacks few major things. I am comparing this with my existing 1+year old Nokia N82
1) Excellent Screen: Nothing else comes close to the quality & resolution of 5800 screen. I am fine with resistive touch screen. Yes, it does capture smudges and finger prints but that's ok.
2) 8GB Card: it's a welcome deal
3) Responsive: but not as fast as N82
1) Poor battery: Such a marvelous screen demands high power. At least a 2100 mAH battery. Existing 1320 mAh battery is just no match for the phone.
2) Poor GPS: even AGPS takes TIME. (Compared to N82 of course)
3) Poor Built Quality: having used this for more than a month, it already looks as old as my 1 year old N82. I am not sure how old it will look and feel after 10 months
3) Poor Camera: N82 is simply awesome, compared to that, 5800 is cheapish.
I sold this phone yesterday for almost the same price as that i got it for. It's better sell it off early than letting it loose it's price.
Perhaps I am looking for a N Series Candibar with a duel processor etc. Or in short, a Touch Screen version of N82 :)
PunK, 26 Jan 2009I heard this phone gets hanged like crazy at times ! is that true ?!! im plannin to buy this..... morewell u wont believe me if i said it. But here it goes. I have been using the phone for almost1 month. And in that time it only hanged once,when i tried to update the phone. My phone's memory is 70‰ full. And i am always lisenin to music an all the visiting in gsmarena i do it by it. My data usage is almost 10gigs these 30days and tok tym is over hundred hours. So u can say from these tat i am apower user,and my phones must survive these torture.i wont deny What u r sayin coz the chinese one angs alot my frnd has it. U should buy the hungarian one it's awesome. And try to buy the black one it is rare and looks way cooler.

Two great things about it, the shape of the thing means trying to balance it for the cameras self timer is impossible and secondly the way the power and headphone sockets are at the top, ideal for water to run into when its raining (yes in some parts of the world it does rain and some people will make calls in the rain)

Is this model made in China? In Saudi Arabia, you can't find a unit which is made in Finland.

i agree with all the things you said except for one, regarding the incoming call...when someone is calling me, i can see his/her contact details (name or mobile number) wether my unit is locked or not. it has caller ID and is working really fine so i don't know why your unit does not do the same. i suggest you bring it to nokia service center so they can check what's the problem...regards...
nokia 5800 cost in saudi arabia
and iphone 2750 SR
I want to buy this the good looking 5800 but i want all the good and bad things about it please suggest me on this topic.

There you can see the name and number of your caller.. mabuhay IKC = Iphone killer clan...

the update size was one mb something!
my previous version was 10 and now it's 11!
lat week i treid to update with nsu but after downloading everything is stopeed every time i tried coz my phone was being used as modedm as i don't hav any other source of net!
but now in curiosity i just checked for update and it showed me a update of 1mb,whereas the update i downloaded was 125mb! but the phone is updated after installing the file(1mb) and google search is available to me! and the strangest thing is that both my set and nsu shows my firmware verson as 11.and says no more update available! i am totally confused on waht just happened!

I bought by 5800XM 5days ago. But there are some problems in it. When I listen Music in built-in music player, at the end of each track, I hear a cracking noise for about 1 second, then a pause for 1 second and finally the next track begins. These MP3 and M4A songs are quite normal in N95 with the same memory card. It occours in case of both handset and headset. Another problem is with video player. When I play a video, sometimes it freezes for 1-2 seconds than play again.These also play well in my N95. Can anyone tell me what occurs in your case? How can I solve this? Is it possible to make a group or playlist in video player or gallery which we can do in N95? Thanks in advance.
