Yeah, the 5800 is quite slow for a phone now.
At the same price range, you could consider the LG GT540 Optimus instead. (NOTE: The page is wrong, it has 256 MB RAM.)
The advantages of the 5800 are
1) Nice display
2) Stereo speakers
3) a 4GB (it used to be 8 GB) microsd card
4) a secondary camera
5) Dual flash LED on camera
#1, 3, and 5 are advantages compared to phones in its price range. Some "premium" ($600) phones still don't have #2 and surprisingly many don't have #4, which is actually a big deal if you live in a country with video-call capabilities.

cook your 5800 with c6 firmware and you will see a different between the ori and cooked one. mine already using c6 firmware and my phone respone more faster.also to people have a problem with they phone,update the firmware to the latest but if you dare to take the risk,cook it with c6 firmware.using it almost 2 years and never regret buying the phone.

guyz i am already planning to buy n5800.. but after reading all of this opinions?/ ii got scared.
is n5800 really really slow??
it had been the best for its price range having all the features for smart phones. the only drawback i face - very bad pictures in night. sometimes screen touch doesn't work while using a call active on cell and you want to do something else alongwith. you may need to unlock again and again to get screen activated.
i got my 5800xp last thursday and what i notice is that the battery easily drain... guys!!! what should i do.... please help... thanks.....
i got plaian colord screen on my 5800 most the time. Try lock and unlock but it is hard . Sometimes i restart the device. Second when iam browsin the internet and go2middle or down the page i find myself on top the page itself . I dont know what to do?! Nokia you should realise new software update to solve this problems. I wish there is new firmware very soon. It is no my problems alone , u can watch youtube and see2many people have the same issues. Thanx
