as much as i like nokia 5800 (still using N73), i sold it off after 2 weeks. no doubt it is a good phone, but the camera is a let down. whether indoor or outdoor, it takes pictures as though it is a 2.0 megapix w/o auto focus. other than the camera, sounds quality is superb which i disgaree with grmarena review
design = 4/10 (u can hear the plastic creek)
UI = 6/10 (still buggy)
sound- loudspeaker = 9/10 - as good as N73
camera = 2/10
overall = 7/10
I have an N73 with the same camera and glass - gets great pics for a 3.2 MP. Why the poor performance (according to GSMARENA)on the 5800?
in year 2009 u wont be able to get any phone like 5800.. same features same build in this price .. Impossible!!
i want to get this phone but in my country they told me that they are all chinese made, so i'm concerned about the quality. can someone help me? are chinese ones good ?
seems it hurts ur apple so much lol!! just check out the name of this fone Nokia 5800 Xpress Music so basically its a walkman series of Nokia means fone plus music player. who died and made u einstein lol.
I bought this phone a week ago, intially i was facing difficulty in using it .. but now i am very much habituated with its touch screen. Phone audio quality- speaker quality- good, when u have earphones- its simply superb,awsome,excellent- camera quality just like Noka N73.
to the one who comment 5800 as crap. think, youre refering to yourself coz your to dumb to know how to use the phone. get real youre simply stupid. obcourse the sound cant be compared to ipod coz its a mobile phone.
Can you watch .avi on this phone? If yes what player or codecs do you need ?
lol.. and what is you source of all this crap? i am using it and i know it's a great phone!! stop spreading false information!! grow up!
I've been using this phone for almost a week now, and So far its been a great experience. I'm one of the lucky ones who got the 2nd batch that has version 11. So far no problems at all, seems very stable. No earpiece problem either. installed 5 apps, 4 of which are 3rd party apps, no lags no restarts. For me it has a good built quality, no creaks. Great feature at a good price. Any questions you can freely ask.
Just a suggestion to those who are planning to buy this phone. Before purchasing check first the version if it's 11.0.008, then buy it. If its 10.0.008, then wait til the next batch arrives in your place or country, if you can't wait you can just update to version 11. You can check the software version by turning on the phone and entering this on the dialer screen *#0000#
I can say I'm really satisfied with it, no regrets in getting this phone. And by the way mine's made in China. I'll just update my post when something comes up.
Have a nice day everyone! This Phone Rocks!!!
i think its paid review , compare n95 8gb , 5800 is crap in sound and audio (ipod is just king), touch screen plastic ,cant dial as we do normally ,no ngage ,worst camera ,no f m transmitter and funny thing is droping price worth to buy below 200 usd ,iphone still at same 700usd ??
I have bought blue 1 (china). But I felt that, music on loudspeaker is not better than n73 (music edition). What do u say?
guyz,i was in the que for 10 hours to buy the handset in Gulshan and i got it with a free bluetooth headset (BH-604).wow,it is great!i love the handset.it is beautiful and functional.
Hello all i just bought 5800 yesterday...so far it has been an amazing experience...but my firmware version is 10. when i want to upgrade the firmware it searches for new upgrades and says no updates available??? What to do? How i can download version 11??can any one help me???
5800 has good features, but itseems the quality of camera and UI is not good. Can someone specify a phone with similar features of 5800, but without those problems? Urgent..need to buy a phone immediatly
Andy, 20 Jan 2009N96 and 5800 i think more better is 5800... because it more cheap then N96 and the function i... moreplease don't even think of buying 96. It's the biggest flop in the history of nokia. If u have the money to buy 96 then i would suggestu wait for couple of months more and buy a true technological marvel n97. If u can't wait tha long then u should go for 5800.or 85 or79. all of them zre way better tan 96.
Amar, 20 Jan 2009How do U download and its fine.Can any body else to instruct how to download - please help wit... morei have never had any kind of problem with downloading and installingthe fikes. I have downloaded all of them and installed them even if i dont need them. Just visit the download folder from your phone and update the view which the phone would prompt automatically. Then just click on the files u wanto download. After completion ofdownload u click a place to save in the memory card as it has alot of free spaces. And voalla u r ready to go. After the completion of installation the phone will automatically prompt u to start the program or not. And thzt's it as easy as that. If u still have a problem then take ur phone to nokia care and throw it on the heqd of the head of incharge there for selling u a problematic phone!
