I have a question for all those u have been using the 5800XM. i have noticed that the icons are really big on the menu. Is there any option to reduce the size of the icons? I find them really annoying. Another question. does the fone come with a stand as a part of the box or is it an accessory? How are the headphones?
amit, 05 Jan 2009someone plz give me the answer clearly that is this phone has keypad ? or every input is given... moreAmit, I used the demo piece in the Nokia showroom. The fone does NOT have a keypad. but the touch interface works very well. u wont need a keypad because the icons are big and even for sms u can type using the regular 9 digits grid like regular nokia phones. Its reallly good.
Guys n Gals,
Hear Ye, Hear Ye!
I just went n bought this piece. (BTW, I'm an offical reviewer by profession, google me up)
1] Coz it's a touch phone.
2] Symbian n its features
3] Free large memory card n built-in capacity (also RAM n CPU speed!]
4] Free Sennheiser ear plugs worth Indian Rupees 4000=00, roughly US $80-85.
5] Good looks
6] Interesting Menu n its accessibility features.
7] Awesome Audio output + video output capability.
8] Acceptable camera quality + Bonus Carl Zeiss Lens + twin flash
9] Extremely Aggressive Pricing for such feature rich gadget.
10] I could sell off my 5-month old Samsung BEAT i450 at nearly market value.
Lastly, people learn to appreciate something.
Just becoz Computer Giant Apple launched 2 versions of gadgets that made way for more touch gadgets does not mean u compare everything out there with them.
Even so, consider only these 2 points:
You can't forward messages in either iPhones; you have to re-write the entire thing, not even copy-paste from memory.
You can't transfer anything using Bluetooth in either iPhones. Nada-Zilch-Nothing!
Now, why would somebody in a sane state of mind spend on a gadget that one can't even use to connect their own computers to transfer say via bluetooth, if so needed? forget anti-piracy laws n blah... about MP3 n sharing with ur friends.
What about personal pics, audio conversations, video recorded moments? Does that thing work; NO!
So, see how this one is easily offering what sopmeone else promised (apparently!) n failed (obviously!) to deliver.
Gotta play around now, Right?
someone plz give me the answer clearly that is this phone has keypad ? or every input is given by touch screen...?
Awsome phone...... Amazing display...... Marvellous sound...... Greatttttt......
