This is one sexy phone. The touchscreen is very responsive, it locks quickly so you wont accidentally open apps while it's in your pocket. The menu's are easy to access and it has a neat little shortcut key to the media applications at top right corner of the screen (to the right of where it says 'xpressmusic'.
It comes with a stylus but I haven't needed it. You'd only need it if you have massive fingers or are a noob with your finger accuracy.
The only qualms I have with it (and basically all other nokias) is photos taken at night come out grainy and not very clear. Otherwise it's a fantastic phone, iphone can suck it! :D
I looking for to buy this phone as soon as posible.
it so cool I see. but i need to know more with other users. Please let me know.. Thanks,
Here ones again i request all to give the price at which you purchased the phone. also give the country name.
All the best and good luck to all the lucky buyers.
Just go through the symbian s60 site and download the latest updation reg development.simply mind blowing.although there are limited applications are available for this perticular phone; but it will available in a months time.
love to hear u again. Could u tell me what about internet brousing in 5800. just take your own time and let me know. here i am yet to get my phone. its a lovely phone. A no of youtube has come in google with reg to 5800. also tell me your version.
Well I got my own Nokia 5800 Xpress 2 days ago ans I must tell you that I am quiet impressed and very happy that I did buy it, no matter how much it cost me.
What I think:
1) The touch screen responds really good, just as good as the iPhone. I like how you have to tap twice to open an app, unlike the iPhone where if u touch the app ip opens straight away & that's annoying if you hit the wrong app by mistake.
2) The phone is really, really loud. Very clear sound, I dought very much that you would ever miss a call by not hearing it ring.
3) It's really light and small to what I thought it would be.
4) The phone is quick with txting and viewing files and flicking between applications.
5) I bought my model of ebay here in Australia unlocked and I put my Optus simcard into it and it set up really well with no issues at all.
6) Comes with a great pouch to slide your phone into.
7) The interface is nice too.
Like I've said I've only had this mobile for two days and I am very happy. I love Nokia. I was using the iPhone 3g before the Nokia 5800 and I don't regret changing back to Nokia.
Guys, it is quiet a good phone and I like it.
