Anonymous, 03 Oct 2008So your only issue is the screen. Have you considered everything else? Iphone doesnt even have... moreYes, my major issue is the screen, and that is a big deal because you use the screen every time you use the phone. I did consider BT and MMS. Those are handy features. But I also know that there are other features that does the same thing, like email. So I still get that function covered. I never had issues with the iphone on calls, or any of my prior phones. So you are wrong is saying that the iphone has poor calling capabilities. I do not know what you mean in saying that the iphone has limited messaging capabilities. I can send SMS and even send email with my iphone. What more do I need? As for the camera, I think all camera phones have pathetic cameras, lol. They're not meant to be primary cameras in the first place. No offense, but people who likes quality photos would always prefer digital cameras, unless you cannot afford to buy one, so you would just settle for a camera phone. What crazy problems does the iphone have that should've been fixed in the 3g version? Apple deliberately excluded some features for a reason. Believe me, if the iphone is just an overhyped product, no one would have bought the 3G version. People who had the 1st gen iphone even upgraded to 3g. Iphone got bad reviews? Is that why it's chosen as the gadget of the year in several magazines? Nokia has not taken care of the basics. If they had, they would've used glass instead of plastic for its screen. What heap of technology are you talking about? Nokia chose resistive instead of capacitive touch. Resistive is old school technology for touchscreens. Is that the heap of technology that you're talking about? No doubt, this is going to be a cool phone, because I used to have the N95, and I was happy with it as well. But to say that this one would be better than the iphone is just wishful thinking. I see this phone competing with Samsung and LG. Iphone is just too good for this phone.
This phone isn't perfect. But let me let you all in on e little secret - perfect phones do not exist. That's the monstrous marketing strategy manufacturers now days implement.
But but but.. this phone is surely decent one. I like its stylish design and bunch of useful functions. The only thing that this phone lacks is iPhone's multitouch thing. I will buy this phone once it's released to market here in Turkey. Turkey is always 2 months behind the rest of the world and I believe it won't be released earlier than January.
Jest, 03 Oct 2008Touchscreen. Big deal...For your information, the iphone does'nt have an mms. Which is very important to so many people. Second, iphone's camera is only 2 mp. Third, 5800 xpresmusic has 16m colour screen, which is very high quality. It is obvious that the iphone lose! Anyway, 5800 xpress should be announced along with the e75 and e72.. Plus some devices i cant talk about yet. A hint, 8 mp. 3.5' screen. The next Nxx.. Just wait till this december.
I prefer Motorola VE 538. the best phone i´ve ever seen.... Motorla VE 538 rocks!!!!
shayan, 03 Oct 2008you told the cpu is dual 369 mhz. why the cpu is changed?Because gsmarena wrote it down wrong.
but this phone not have a office document.is this phone support to microsoft excell and word files?i mean could we transfer from computer to phone
I Personally think the Design is better then iPhone and Omnia...
and Features beats them both aswelll....
i just hope Nokia has exceeded my expectations with it
The problem with Nokia phones is that they are always very exciting at the beginning then people start to realize they are very cheaply made, look and feel like toys, and get bored very fast with them. Hope not the same with this one.
the phone made me squeal in ways my wife has failed awesome specs and so much better looking than the other xpress music phone whens the uk release date and how much?
@robbo95...lamer...symbian buggy??? on what world u live in??? have u tested a smartphone from nokia, i think not, blame the developers wannabes from were u have the software because there apps are buggy not the os, try to install good apps and u will so NO BUGGS...btw n96 1 year old??? come on from feb 2008 till oct 2008 1 year??? nice math dude...have u skipped 1st grade???
An extra stylus in the package, as well as a 8gb memory card and TV-out cable ! for such a cheap price. LG should look at that...
In one day, this phone has received over 1000 votes and over 50,000 hits. Definitely phone of the year 2008.
I believe Vga recording at 30fps will be as good as with the 5 mpx of N95 or N85 bcause even if it has only 3 Mpx camera it is far enough for vga (=0.3 Mpx) recording. But of course photos won't be as good.
Anonymous, 03 Oct 2008I went here to see if I could learn stuff about this phone. Instead, I see a lot of Nokia fan... moreSo your only issue is the screen. Have you considered everything else? Iphone doesnt even have bluetooth or mms. Whats the point of trying to implement good technology and ignoring the most basic. All apple did was take their ipod touch and give it poor calling capabilities, very limited messaging capabilities and a pathetic camera. Furthermore, they had a chance to fix those crazy problems with the iphone 3g, but they chose not to. Iphone was just overhyped and in true sense it isnt really great. And if that wasnt enough, its price tag was inexcusably high. Why do you think it got such bad reviews on so many websites?
When it comes to 5800xm, Nokia have taken care of all the basics and implemented a vast heap of technology. This phone is much better in almost all ways and has what it takes to kill iphone and with such a tempting price, iphone is in for trouble, if not certain death.
This phone has managed to drive attention away from iphone/iphone 3g, innov8, n-series, e-series and many other great devices. They are all in trouble now.
I wonder if nokia will have enough units to sell, because this thing will sell like hot cakes.
