does anyone know if this phone will have conversation view sms like the iphone?
Anonymous, 15 Dec 2008C905 of 5800
which one is better?ive had both the c905 and the iphone 2g and iphone 3g along with touch diamond and lg secret and o2 orbit.
hands down this phone wins without a problem.
why? well its really stable out of the box and the touch screen altho needs a little getting used to if youve used another touch based phone, its really on par with the iphone.
the screen doesnt feel flimsy and yes the phone is light in weight, but it goes in yr pocket unnoticed.
i miss the camera off the c905 although it did struggle in dark enviroments even with xenon flash. the camera on the 5800 is its weakest point, however if you want a better camera go buy a different phone.
only a couple of bugs so far on my phone
call volume sometimes goes soft then loud intermittent.
colours change on whole of screen occasionally for a few seconds.
otherwise so far so good.
installed google maps and it works a treat. be nice if we could have street view in the uk.
chad, 15 Dec 2008is there any difference btwn red and the blue one ?? ( in software)The only difference is that the red one has red highlights on the software when scrolling etc and the blue one has blue.
mind yu i bought mine from hong kong and it had a red case with blue software. not a problem due to can change theme of phone anyway.
Please owners, tell as if this thing can really open documents like Word, Excel... I know it have document viewer in the specs, but i never seen that happen in reality. I watch the reviews evеry day but ....
sukrsa, 15 Dec 2008Can Xdiv, divX, RM movie directly play on 5800 without converting?There is no divx or xvid support out of box. We will have to wait till compatible version of smartmovie or divx player comes out. I think RM is supported out of box.

Sally, 15 Dec 2008Did anyone try installing Fring on this? Fring works just fine on my N95 and I just love it.. ... moreSally..I've tried fring but the phone reject it. I even tried Slick but same..didnt work at all. I guess we must wait some other months.
jackson, 15 Dec 2008u ppl should stop complaining, if its lighter, u call it cheap plastics. if its made by solid,... moreGuys, Jackson is right. Everyone seems to complain or talk very negative about things specially those who haven't had a hands on experience with things yet. I've got the iphone 3g and i love how solid it is but at the same time i was sacred of dropping it & yes it was heavy but that didn't bother me much but dropping it did as i'm sure it would smash the screen if it dropped screen first. I love how light the nokia 5800 is, and although i'm looking after it good i'm not that freighten if i drop it as i don't think it would break as easy even though it's made of plastic, it is well built and endurable. Cheers people Craig
Did anyone try installing Fring on this? Fring works just fine on my N95 and I just love it.. I hope it is the same case with 5800.. I wouldn't want to lose Fring as it saves me loads on IDD calls..
