nokia, 18 Jun 2010if your buying phone because of touch screen then no 1 can beat capacitive screen. it is very... moreLOL the current UI of the 5800 is now the same as the x6,and I certainly agree capacitive is better than resistive,but resistive screens are more accurate,plus it can be used with a stylus,gloves and etc. but nothing beats the responsiveness of a capacitive. . .:))
tebs, 19 Jun 20105233 2mp is better camera than the 5800 3.5mp carl zeiss in low light condition.. its unfair. ... moreImage quality isn't always with the megapixel count or the brand of a lens. . it's about how images are processed or how the quality of the lens is. . I think both are scored average on image quality. . . but due to the LED flash,plus poor image camera sensor, it was ruled out actually. . . so lemme give a demonstration. . the 5233 and the 5800 were in the dark, making both phones raising up their ISO's (light sensitivity) it means losing details and taking out noise. . (Details-noise=a more clear photo but you have to hold the camera still though or your photos would become blurry. So the more ISO means more noise and detail)both phones might be on par with each other (without flash) and due to the Lens' small size there would be purple dots flying over,but turning on the 5800's LED flash it will be so dissapointing due to the small lens the Noise reduction wasn't good enough and you need a lot of light to enter the lens to make a good photo but the LED flash was weak so the results were the 5800 was forced to decrease the ISO into further amount making more noise in this and combine it with the poor LED flash it'll make a messy photo. . . but if we had Xenon flash rather than LED chances are the photo would be improved by a factor of 80%. .
[deleted post]much better if you'll buy Nokia 5800 XpressMusic / more on features / more on specifications / and good quality . just a suggestion ... haha
5233 2mp is better camera than the 5800 3.5mp carl zeiss in low light condition.. its unfair. can any body explain this?
Yes!!!! after very looooong waiting finally now Indonesian 5800 lover can upgrade to ver. 50.0.005 thru Nokia software updater.
Try its, much better then 31 but I can not compare with ver 40/41(?) since we in Indonesia can not down load ver 40/41(?).
the kinetic scroll look like iphone.
For preventing data lost, better back up your data to memory card even thou after upgrading all data and setting in my 5800 still there exactly same.
Thanks NOKIA, when C6 avaiable in Indonesia???
Can you please tell Which type of video file formats supports the Nokia 5800.
I bought 5800xm last week after days of confusion (whether to buy this or Samsung Jet/Omnialite; finally decided to get this one). So far phone has been fantastic. I have already upgraded to v50. No hanging/freezing. Touchscreen is not very responsive to fingers (but this is true for all resistive touch screens!) although Stylus and "nails" response is very fast.
It obtains GPS connection pretty fast; have already done bit of navigation and it was perfect. Wifi is fast and cool. I'm not a music fan so wont' comment on that part. Camera, well, for me 3.2mp is good enough for sharing on net and posting on facebook so dont need more.
Initially, I was bit concerned about the black/gray UI of s/w (buttons, Qwerty keyboard etc), but later I installed a cool theme so now I have a wonderful UI and touch buttons.. So far I am luving this phone.

This phone built like a tank, in the past year, I dropped in water, thought it was dead, then 1-week later, working again. Also, I accidentally bricked it, trying to upgrade w/ a false product code, and somehow got it to work again using Phoenix. Now with v5 firmware, it's like a Swiss girl, a little fat, but does everything.
all d previous complaints are not true..., i think those stuffs dunno how 2 use mobile or else that particular handst might be a faulty piece., in my view 5800xm is a very good phone., its works very well since 2 yrs
I bought this phone in March last year, and ever since I have had endless problems with it.
It wouldn't charge, the camera wouldn't work, wouldn't send text messages, kept freezing, continually needed software upgrades.. The list goes on and on and on and on...
I've had it taken in for repair about 15 times since March last year, and I've had it replaced about 7 times.
Overall, I liked the phone to start with, but after all the problems I've had with it I cannot stand it. I've resorted to using my old phone.
Suddenly message alerts have stopped on my phone. Even though i receive a message, am not notified about it.
What should i do?

I bought Nokia 5800 a few days ago and now I am trying to learn how it works. I had Nokia 3110 classic before, which I think has much better menus and shortcuts and is user friendlier.
Can anybody help me please with the following difficulties I have?
1. Trying to organise the menus I moved a shortcut from the applications menu to the main menu and then I suprisingly found that it had taken the place of the settings shortcut which disappeared from the main menu. I moved back the other shortcut and then its place was left empty.
Where can I find and how can I restore the settings icon?
2.Can I change the order of the shortcuts in the menus?
3. The main menu holds only up to 12 shortcuts?
4. Can Opera Mini work with wap-gpr connection and how?
