I got this phone today. Its kinda so-so. It's same old symbian 60 3rd with touch function. As far as touch interface is concern, it is nowhere close to iphone. Built quality is typical nokia.....i mean cheap looking plasticy. I am pissed off for the money I paid for this crap. If it were 200-300dl, i'd not be complaining here.
In Finland from 339€ with operator contract up to 354-399€ without, at week 51 eah!
5800 will be about Rp 4.800.000,- here in indonesia
said the SPG on nokia store

I believe it won't drop too much until the next big thing, N97. If it was up for USD$399 in Singapore, I'd grab it. Cheers.
Wow... with the impending introdution of N97 in 2009 which is almost a lookalike of SE's Xperia X1, will this poor 1st ever Nokia touchscreen phone ever lose its appeal? Especially when it hasn't even hit the stores of many countries yet... And I'm disgusted as to the pricetag thay have put on this phone, especially when the word is in recession! I need a new phone!

About the touch screen...@ Craig
The front of the device is dominated by the 3.2 inch resistive touch screen, which has a resolution of 360 x 640 pixels (Nokia refer to this as nHD). This is much higher than most previous S60 devices (QVGA: 240 x 320) and has a wider aspect ratio (16:9 compared to 4:3). Touchscreens typically use resistive or capacitive technology; capacitive touchscreens (as used on the iPhone) are generally regarded as more sensitive and work better in sunlight, but only work with finger touch, whereas resistive touchscreens can work with any object (finger, stylus, when wearing gloves etc.). The 5800's screen is set behind the resistive layer and is therefore well protected.Resistive touchscreens work by having two thin layers of conductive and resistive material which detect a 'touch' when they are pressed together; this means a physical push is required for a touch to be registered. The main concern with such screens, from a usability viewpoint, is how much of push is needed. If you're using the stylus (easily the most accurate way to interact with any touchscreen) with the 5800 then there are no problems at all. Even with the less accurate/controllable finger touch, you can get the response. That's extremely good compared to other resitive touch screens.
The other typical problem with such touch screens is that the resistive layer can dull screen clarity and brightness; but again this isn't an issue with the 5800.
Indeed I think the 5800's screen is one of the device's high points; Nokia were quite serious when said it was industry leading at the launch event. Colour range and accuracy is excellent for an LCD based screen and its high resolution gives it impressive detail and sharpness.
Hi Guys & Girls,
Thought I'd try get some advise from people who have the Nokia 5800 and have a hands on experience.
I currently have an iPhone 3g and the most things that I mainly love about it:
- Is how responsive the touch screen is
- I love the interface
- I love the Ipod functions
- The size is ok because it's thin.
What I miss or dislike, are:
- The ability not to txt forward
- Can't send/receive MMS
- Video Recording
*I knew the iPhone didn't do the above before buying, just didn't realise I'd miss these features as much*
I recently bought the Samsung Omnia i900 and I bought it out impulse and I totally regretted it. I sold it 2 weeks later as the touch screen was not responsive, the wifi just wouldn't connect to my home wifi, it was slow and the touch screen only really worked properly if I was using the stylus, which was scratching the screen. So it wasn't for me so it was sold 2 weeks later.
I've had plenty of Nokia models before, my last being the Nokia N95 8gb, in which I really loved.
Now, I'm really interested in the Nokia 5800 Xpress, the price currently is another story, but I really like all the features on the 5800. I only have one concern, that would be how responsive the touch screen is.
If someone has this model, can you please tell me if the touch screen is quiet responsive like the iPhone 3g. This is the only thing holding me back from buying it at this stage.
Any advise would be very greatful.
Thanks in Advance
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2008loudness and sound quality is not on n91 level only n96 like n91 has the 24 bit audiochip and... moredude loudness wise there is nothing compared to the N91 ...harmen DAC etc .....and well N85 is no way near even to the n81 .....soo i think 5800 is just another nokia phone better then the rest of xpress music phones ...but no way near the N81 or the N91 .....have;nt tried the N96 ..but at top volume its distortion levels are way too high to be competing with N91 or N81 ......
