I am a regular reader of this gsmarena. I now bought Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic 13800/- in India. I want to share my opinion on this mobile. This is an excellent mobile, which can use very nicely. Touch is very good. Its GPS is very good. Its OVI store will provide us many themes, gadgets, applications, games (I Never found Tollywood songs on this store). Camera clarity is good. Flash is good. In this site, i read that this mobile will always stuck when we use applications a lot, still now I didnt encounter anything such type of things. The cons of this mobile are when we receive anything from bluetooth, it will store in messages. No avi format support, only MP4. There is no option of sending a folder via bluetooth. Music player is one of the worst thing in this mobile... no dedicated music key is there. If we wanna hear any songs while driving, there is no option of having them to play, pause, previous track, next track (this is the worst thing bcoz i always like hearing songs while driving). Video clarity of MP4 is awesome and excellent. From my point of view, it is a reasonable price for me to get this mobile.
been using 5800 with latest fw update. for me s60v5 is a good and reliable os.very user friendly too.performs well in daily use.
why is it in the review always say having s60v5 is a bad thing?if its about the UI, then just say the UI is outdated, not the whole os is bad.i think people just follow what others say.

Nokia 5800EM is a nice mobile phone but i was surprised when i took video using this unit my camera did not function anymore, I went to Nokia Center in our place in Tacloban City for my mobile phone is still under warranty but after the repair the resolution of my cam is not as ok as before and some of the features cant be accessed anymore like in personalization of my unit, I cant create my own profile anymore, what will I do? Is the technician in our place capable of performing such? Also, my files in my memory card has been erased without notifying me and my unit is getting warm whenever I had a prolonged usage just after the repair.I went to the Nokia Center again but unfortunately i had no patience of waiting since I am a government employee because it will take us half day to wait for our turn.Thank you and hoping that you will consider my concern.
Arpit patel, 28 Oct 2010hi all,
plz check it in yr phone( any s60 v3/v5 phone) and reply here.
i have to use call... morehey there,
i just went to Nokia care n they were kind to inform me that the older nokias (n70-73) used mic as hardware. so when u mute call in those phones n then record calls, as there is a mechanical mic, it would not record noises from caller side.
but as this mic had probs n several people tempered with mics, nokia started using digital mic. so even if u record with mic muted, it will record ur voices.
this is nokia centre story. those who deal with nokia hardwares, plz confirm.
i just bought a pouch but im not sure whether it good for my nfon or not,i plans want to buy a new one,,that pouch have a magnet,i fear that it might give risk to my nfon

i have to use call conferencing with my microphone muted and listen to my seniors lecture. sometimes when i m busy, i have to record calls without beeps using total recall, vox track personal or other 3rd party call recorders. but the prob is when i record call with my mic muted, it records call including the surrounding noises from my side. How can this happen? i have muted my mic, even then it records my voices in call recording. i even tried it in nokia's built-in recorder. plz help
just call up yr customer care, after the call starts, mute microphone from options, now go to applications and start recording using in- built recorder or any 3rd party recording appli u want. just say 'hello-hello' for some time and then stop recording. now disconnect call (its free call). go to gallery and check the recording. i think it will have recorded the customer care voice and yr 'hello=hello'. this means the mic is not muted when u r recording, just the caller (cust care) cant hear u. plz check n reply.
i want to buy a phone which records calls without voices from my side. Right now i m using nokia 5320 and 5800xm. both have this prob.
Nokia can win the os war with it's cumulative number of customers by updating all the various os to the current editions and adding or improving performance of their devices thus series 40, symbian platform s60, symbian os and meego. Nokia has many customers so they can make a software that makes you chat instantly, share informations and video chatting and update it through ovi store or nokia software updater that will work for all their various sodtware os . Their customers will stick to Nokia because they know their phones are at par with the newest edition. Nokia should focus on connecting people at the minimum cost and make their great phones such as 9500, e90, n70, n73, n77, n82, n90, n91, n92, n93, n95, n96, n97 etc all can be updated to latest updates. Focus on connecting people which means people develop from one stage to another infant to teenager to adult. Let all your devices be frequently updated to current version before releasing the new device for popularity. Eg if symbian 3 is installed on all nokia smartphones great sales for new nokia phones because usability is popular.
BUY THIS PHONE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! I own this phone for a year now and it's good yes, but the MAJOR downside of this great phone, the thing that makes it so bad is SYMBIAN!!! It's very slow, outdated, the app store sucks and it can barely run java games that run perfectly on any old sony erricson phone. The OS is very bad. I recommend Android or Windows Mobile, because they beat symbian at every point. I'll switch to a HTC android at the soonest possibility because i'm fed up with the shitty quality of this outdated OS.
