007, 26 Dec 2008Which is better n82 or 5800, and what is this LED flash?? Pls help Hi 007,
Like the user name, my mobile/cell number ends in 007 which I think is cool ;-)
Anyhow to your question about "what is led flash". To my knowledge I believe led flash is just a very bright light that trys to brighten the room up as much as it can to get a good picture for you. Xenon flash which is a true digital camera flash is a whole lot better. I don't understand that why each brand can't just give every high end mobile a xenon flash but at the end of the day it's all about marketing ;-)
I'm sure theres a proper purpose for what a led flash is, but its seems better then a standard flash on a mobile phone but its not better then the Xenon flash.
Vicks, 26 Dec 2008Craig,
Where did u get ur fone from in UAE?? & for how much...
I wanna get it, just need... moreHi Vicks,
I bought mine off ebay Australia from a seller who imported them from overseas. The Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic mobile isn't released here in Australia officially yet. I paid AUD$820, which works out with todays exchange rate to be US$560, bit expensive for me but well worth it.
Now as my model was an import from a seller on ebay Australia, when I received my Nokia 5800 it's original box was in chinese writing and english. So I believe my model was packaged for the chinese/Hong Kong market.
Now a little while ago someone put a post on here stating that if checkout your imei number, if the 7th & 8th numbers where "02" then this indicates that your model was built in UAE (Dubai) and he stated that the models there were not good builds. I wanted to state for a fact, that if this is the case with imei numbers then my model is a UAE build and I have not had one issue what so ever and that what he was saying is not 100% true and that not all builds are going to be the same.
So speaking, I didn't buy my model directly from the UAE but believe my model is built there.
Since the Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic mobile has been released, all I have been seeing is people brand bash it, compare it to iphone, talk the phone down when they even haven't had a hands on experience with one or you have had other brand lovers come on here and bash it as much as they can.
If you look at all the post on gsmarena under every model released, they all read 50% praising the model and 50% bashing the model and about 75% of the post are just useless information of people not using the post for what there purposes are.
I don't understand how people can write a post about something if you don't have the model in your hot little hands and using it, this is fiction, not facts. You can compare two models against each other for features however they other totally different usage to the person considering getting one, so you can't write one is a total write off while the other one is perfect, how do you know that one is perfect for me and the other isn't.
I don't like brand bashing or comparing because each model is unique in there way or suit a certain group of people.
It's good to read forums where people have had a hands on experience with that particular model, and I"m noit talking about a hands on experience by going into the shop and playing with it for 10 minutes, this isn't giving you a true hands on experience at all.
I like reading post that gives me the good with the bad hands on experience, people who have had the model for a little while and may of had issues and if they did, how did they go about resolving the issue, was it an on-going issue was easily rectafied.
What we need to realise is that there maybe 20 thousand Nokia 5800 models built, it doesn't mean that all 20 thousand models are all going to have the same issue. To me it is luck of the draw to get a defaulted model, Nokia don't know which one has a default etc, however they give you a warranty so if you have a default or issue with your model they'll fix it or replace it. That's there trust behind there brand, and this every brand out there for this sake.
So Vicks, I haven't bought my model directly from the UAE myself, but I believe my model was built in the UAE and I have not had one issue at all with mine my friend. I wish you luck with your choice, if you have a question, don't hesitate to ask me, I will answer it with honesty and with what experience I have had.
All the best
Vicks, 26 Dec 2008Craig, Where did u get ur fone from in UAE?? & for how much... I wanna get it, just need... moreHi Vicks, I bought mine off my a seller on ebay Australia. It's not even released here yet officially. I paid $800 Australian dollars, so on todays exchange rate & our weak dollar i'd say around the $560 USD. So i paid a lot for mine. Now the ebay seller imported mine which when i received it my Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic was in a original Nokia box but had chinese writing on it, so I beleive my packaging pack was made for the chinese/Hong Kong market. Now a little while ago someone put a post on here stating to check out your imei number & if the 7th & 8th number where 02 then they said this was a UAE made model. If this is true then my model is a UAE model. I didn't buy my model directly from the UAE, it was just a model built there. Sorry if I confused you. On this persons post, he said if your model was a UAE build then it was not a good build so I just wanted to point a fact to him that this isn't true and that i have a UAE built model and it is perfect with not one bit of trouble at all. Since this has been released a lot of people are quick to either brand cash it, compare it to iphone or u have SE fans etc come in and write shit about this model, which isn't helpful at all to anyone. Yes people are going to have some bad experiences & some ain't, not every build of this model is going to be perfect, but that's the chance you take when you buy anything really, check the post on every model ever released and you will find that every post is 50/50 in praising that model or complaining or bashing it. I prefer to read the hands on post only and the one that are going to help me better judge my choice. I don.t need a cloud of confusion over my head :-). Vicks good luck with your decision mate, i'm sure you will choose the right model for yourself. Cheers Craig :-)
sina, 26 Dec 2008I think you are talking about N97; not N79!Hi Sina, no i am refering to the Nokia N79 not the N97. The Nokia N97 isn't even released as yet so why would someone be asking for someone's opinion on which model they should buy now. Let's not confuse people here :-). Cheers Craig

Need help, 26 Dec 2008Which do you think is the best?To need help, i don't really care for the mega pixel difference in the mobile, 3.2mp is enough for me in a mobile. If i want great pictures i'll use my 8mp digital camera for that. What i cared most about was having alot of available memory in which the Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic offers double the memory compaired to to Nokia N79. I also love the touch screen. The both about the same size and weight also. Nokia is a trusted brand, so whether u go for the N79 or 5800 u can't go wrong. Cheers Craig.
