daone, 09 Dec 2008when is the release date for the uk i must have this phoneNokia annouced the 5800 on october 2008 and released it on November 2008.
Does this phone '5800' accept applications, has anyone tried it and how did it respond?
sarah, 09 Dec 2008guys it's in egypt stores or not?? & if it's for how muchno its not in egypt yet, n i think it wont be available for a while maybe summer of next year, things come very late here, i'll get mine from dubai soon..
my friend bought it 1 weeks back for $396 & i've spent a whole day wid him gettin on with the phone....my friend is mad about this but it ddnt met all my expectation 4 a phone...in my opinion...
1. 3.2" screen is quite brilliant
2. the camera is ok...but too many noises in low light.
3. music in my frnd's boss headphone is so cool.
4. loud sp. is better thn my N73 ME. but no bells or whistles.
1. quite slow.
2. the image gallery is foul, no appeal.
3. in some cases it needs to be tapped twice.
4. doesnt have doc viewer preinstalled & my frnd ddnt found da version for S60 5th edition yet. (even if gsm arena says it has)
5. no n-gaze.
6. the browser is no ease to use.
7. texting seemed terrible to me.
Considering all these I think I'll go for N97 if it's price range get no more thn $750. but i'll say to those who want a quite good phone for a gud price and not a n-series fan...u can buy it rather than the damn N85....(N79 is pretty good still)
Can someone tell me in wich countrys you can actually buy this phone? can he stand up vs omnia?
jammy, 09 Dec 2008i bought 5800 xpress music few days back and after using it i can say that it is not an iphone... moreOne more a dreamer......
I even can say an I-mobile (handset made of Thailand) is much better than Iphone... it has the buil-in Yamaha amplifier to improve its sound, and user friendly. So, I believe than Nokia 5800 will be much much much better than Iphone...if you don't get used to other operation system than Iphone's "absolutely your own self operation system not conectable to other program", don't make any comment anymore here.....
All of above good feature packed fone frm NOKIA......but the only thing went wrong was itz pricing........(later and now)............Toooo High
Piter, 07 Dec 2008That is great to see new Touchscreen of Nokia. With 16M color is very nice. Could anyone know ... moreDo you know exactly what makes a lcd is better than others? Is not a matter of how many color it has, but it is more about resolution mannn....
jammy, 09 Dec 2008i bought 5800 xpress music few days back and after using it i can say that it is not an iphone... morei can introduce some doctor for you to do some brain check

jammy, 09 Dec 2008i bought 5800 xpress music few days back and after using it i can say that it is not an iphone... moreI don't think you have ewer had a nokia 5800 in your hands, so don't lie here...!
Piter, 07 Dec 2008That is great to see new Touchscreen of Nokia. With 16M color is very nice. Could anyone know ... morewindows phones never have lots of colors on screen because windows software for mobiles only supports 65k.
i bought 5800 xpress music few days back and after using it i can say that it is not an iphone killer for sure. the feel of the handset is quite cheap and the camera is the most worst 3.2 mp i have ever seen. iphone's 2mp is much better than 5800 camera. music wise its a decent performer,music through loudspeakers is loud but not as loud as 6233. the haptic feed back is good but not fun. 6 out of 10.
what a wonderful reply....craig. Thanks a lot for giving a note on 5800.I am waiting for my 5800 which will be available here in 2 weeks of time. and to surprise in my office all most all the guys have booked for the same.Excellent phone made by Nokia.
jay, 09 Dec 2008yeah thanks for that link the typing seems alright It doesnt seem as fun as the ipod with all ... moreWell Jay I have the Iphone 3g, and i had the ipod touch beforre the iphone 3g. I love the iphone, the touch screen is good, the ipod functions are the best, I like the interface very much. The reason why I've gone back to Nokia ( I had the Nokia N95 8gb b4 the iphone) is because I didn't realise that I'd mix txt forwarding, cut n paste and MMS messages as much as I am. The iphone lacks this, and all though i knew this b4 buying it, i plainly didn't realise i'd miss the basic functions of a mobile phone.
As for the iphone applications, yes there great and they keep me entertained for 1.5 hour trip into the city and back but i'm not going to miss games as such as im not a games person, so not having apps available like the iphone on the Nokia, i'm not fussed, I'll still have my music to listen to and my book/newspaper to read.
I've just gone and bought a Nokia 5800 xpress, just waiting for it to receive it in the post. I personally bought the Nokia 5800 because it offers everything a mobile should, all the basic stuff to all the extra bonus stuff thats packed into a Nokia device, yes I know phone will probable release all this basic stuff in firmware updates eventually, but I don't want to wait around why they play there silly little marketing stratagies, so in the long run.. they loose a customer back to Nokia. I've always had Nokia's, I've never had any issues with any models i've bought in the past, so from personal experience, Nokia is very reliable for me.
Look, I suggest you decide what you want with a mobile phone, what features and benefits you need with a mobile phone.. then decide what would best suit your needs. Analyse the six step selling questions in yourself before making your decision.
I don't think I'll miss iphone when I get the Nokia 5800 and start using that. I might keep the iphone as an ipod back up or sell it, who knows.
Good luck in what you decide Jay. When I get mine I'll set it up and play with it and then tell you on here what I think of it with a hands on experience.
Most people who already have it on here haven't really said anything bad about it, you read alot of negative stuff but a lot of these people haven't touched it so don't make your mind up on nthere comments, they get you into a lot of trouble if you buy based on thse reports. I did that 4 weeks ago and rushed out and bought a Samsung Omnia i900, it was the worst touch phone to use and I sold it in 2 weeks of having it.Theres one mobile to stay away from.
