Nokia 5800 is good, my only problem with nokia phones is that BATTERY DRAINS FAST. even if youre not using it,,unlike SONY Ericsson phones and samsung their battery lasts long enough,i hope nokia company find a way and solve this problem,, like when i use the gps it really drains my battery fast,,my fone is only 5 mons old and dont use it often,but its like worn out already.

I said THOUGH THE 5800 IS NOT SOO GOOD IN THE CAMERA DEPARTMENT IT MAKES UP FOR THAT WITH IT'S MUSIC!!! ALSO AS IT'S A TOUCH SCREEN MOBILE,OBVIOUSLY THE MATERIALS USED ARE MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THAT USED IN A NON-TOUCH PHONE(i'm referring to the screen, the multimedia key and it's technology)!!!!! Therefore even with an average camera, it gets a higher price tag due to the cost of production!!!!!! Do you get that????
And as for the iphone do you get unlimited/extendable memory,full real-time multitasking,flash in the browser at that very high price tag???? Have some sense please!!!! :)

Tell me u r a phone xpert. 5800 was music smartphone not gaming. Iphone was just an ipod touch wid phone feature and see price. Still costs 33k in india that crap. I would rather buy a nokia n8 or the maemo giant n900. Both has graphic chip and u can see the performance of n900. Said to be best smart phone. Nokia 5800 is still a good choice over that crap iphone 3g/s. And for that iphone 4(never got a signal), i would go for n900 or n8.
MiniMe, 13 Aug 2010Nokia5800 is Nokia's first full-fledged touch screen, which planet are you from iFan??He is right.... The 5800 is Nokia's third touchscreen phone..
The first ones came long ago.. the 7710 and 7700.. back in 2004.

MiniPavvyrotti, 13 Aug 2010FYI: Nokia 5800XM is not Nokia's first touchscreen phone!!! Look your facts!!!Nokia5800 is Nokia's first full-fledged touch screen, which planet are you from iFan??
Nokia 5800XM is not Nokia's first touchscreen phone!!! Look your facts!!!
I live in UAE and have been using 5800 since one year. my device came packed with v21 and even though many updates were available, i was never able to upgrade mine due to restriction on my product code. i learnt to change the product code and was able to upgrade to v51, but no longer able to access the internet. i have gone through all the settings and the web explorer does detect my wifi but does not download anything. neither does any of the web applications, help plsss???
How to work a jar program in full screen in this phone? all jar applications open in the upper half of the screen and the lower half has the arrows for directions.. is there anyway to make jar applications work in full screen?? thanx

I said that the camera of 5800 is poor for this price!Why?? The n73/6500 slide have a better camera @ the same specification...and that's it! At this price should have at least 5mpx. BUT! don't compare this low performance and unoptimized crap 5800 phone with iphone 3gs! ....Iphone: 600mhz CPU, !!accelerator graphic!! , 256 RAM!
why 5800 doesn't have accelerator graph????
This phone is expensive not because is a better phone ... because is:
--- the first touchscreen from nokia!( and this speaks by itself about optimizing, and marketing strategy )
--- have the name Xpress Music (but i don't hear a big change...it is quality, but is normal from nokia. i wrote my full opinion about audio performance, in a comment beyond )
for new user only.
turn on music player. play your favourite song. set loudness off and stereo widening on. place the phone near your throat. feel the stereo widening effect without headsets. thanks.
Fibronaccio, 12 Aug 2010if you read carefully i compare only the camera. the same specification to both phone but the ... moreOh c'mon, overpriced???? Dude did u evernotice the size of the screen??? 3.2 inches. Did u ever notice the type of the screen??? It's a touch screen!!! These two factors alone are enough to make it more expensive for an average 3.2 MP shooter!!! Also it has more RAM and a faster processor compared to the n73, so it has every right to be expensive. And you call this expensive??? Dude what about the iphone 3G/3GS then??? They offer far less features for a higher price than the 5800,so why don't you call that overpriced??? Have sense!!! Peace :)
JagD, 12 Aug 2010Can anyone tell me if there anyway to improve its camera quality?Update to v51,it improves the camera performance slightly. The images taken in low light looks clearer and brighter!!! Cheers! :)
Solomon, 12 Aug 2010Excuse me...how can u compare 5800xm with an n73 that is nowhere near it, specs wise. C'mon...... moreif you read carefully i compare only the camera. the same specification to both phone but the n73 is making better picture, especially in low light (iven 5800 have 2 LED-s..but smaller). I don't know why. Is tested by me and and my girlfriend (me 5800/ she n73me ). In other specif. the 5800 is far, far above. cannot compare this two phones... another reason to say - OVERPRICED -
Fibronaccio!, 12 Aug 2010i didn't want to say 5200..sorry ....5233 and 5530 was about..Hey Fibronaccio! Here you are again!
The only advantage N73 had was in camera:1. It had a larger aperture and 2. A mechanical shutter. NOTHING ELSE. Not even worth a compare.
dear soloman . i wnt excuse.. yes we can somewhat compare n73 with 5800 nokia.. its not about wifi or lan but its about overall performance..
Well what do I say. This is really one of the best mobile phone that has been built/created for the masses.
Everything about the phone is cool. I bought this phone probably about 3 months ago (after I my Nokia N73 ME phone got robbed) and trust me I've really loved the performance of this phone.
It really depends as a mobile user what do you really want in a phone. What I wanted was a fantastic music and good quality video experience. This phone does both. It's got a dedicated Audio Chip for Crystal Clear Hi-Fi Surround Sound and it's video aspect ratio of 16:9 is really good for watching movies at nHD!!!
The best part about this phone is that Nokia has bought a lot of improvements by releasing new firmware for this phone.
When I purchased this phone it came with Version 40.
Later after 3 days of purchase I used the Nokia Software Updater and updated it to Version 50. This version bought in a new feature which was seen in the other phones like Nokia N97 and 5233 etc.. which was the Kinetic Scrolling. Also added Nokia Maps 3.0 and was supposed to have Quick Office Installed which really never happened when I tried it. However updating the mobile phones firmware decreased the performance of the phone slightly.
Just few weeks ago Nokia released another firware i.e. Version 51.0.006
This has eleminated the performance issue and now the phone works smoothly.
Lastly I'd like to say that It's a really good phone for the price that you pay.
Thanks Everyone and Thank You Nokia!!!
