new gen.., 14 Jun 2010nokia 5800xm is too old now..it was out in 2008 November..
i think new buyers now should avoi... moreyup the xm5800 is old now but its hard to get another model with the same features at its price.
yes new phone got new& extra feature,faster better looking but its comes with a new price tag too...
well, new user should find latest model but this phone is a legend. people will still be looking at it and get itchy to buy it.
i bet for all us who is the current owner who take good care of this phone it certainly ROCKS OUR LIFE !!!

Anonymous, 14 Jun 2010Firmware v50 hangs much more than v31 especially if you use spb mobile shell. i m on v50 & dont have this problem. phones do hang but not seldom
there is only 1 inbuilt theme in nokia 5800. Camera 3.2 mp quality is not at all good at night. really waste, go for any sony ericsson mobile.

*in indonesian, you need to translate into english :)much information about 5800 there :D
jus upgraded to v50 (not hacked, coz something is wrong wif it) but other than that, the new version is very stable compared to v40. the touch response is way better now. and it has kinetic scrolling in every menu and also in the browser. :-) that is the best part. n now, its world cup fever, they've created widgets and its just superb, u get live updates and live scores. even though its old, tis phone is n will be a legend. the company's first touch-screen smartphone. i'm liking it everybit n the features are jus too good, except for the camera (night shots)
all in all, for the price and the wuality, i would give this phone a 9.8 rating. :-)
why did you use spb mobile shell ? that's just make your phone work slower. use orange tsunami for home screen is much better. spb shell use much of phone RAM and make it work slow and hangs. i haven't any problem yet with my fw50.
this is an old phone , but look.. no one better than this smart phone on it's price range.
you shouldn't hack your phone if you're not using application such 'myphone' or any other that need to open c:/private. just make certificate for your phone at opda. it work for 'certificate error' etc.
play share and touch :D
*sorry for my bad english
Firmware v50 hangs much more than v31 especially if you use spb mobile shell.

Sure this phone is old. Yet, it has many good features which you simply cannot get in a newer phone for such a low price...
It doesn't look too bad either, if you look closely, the new iphone 4 from the front looks a lot like the 5800.
nokia 5800xm is too old now..it was out in 2008 November..
i think new buyers now should avoid searching this phone as the design is now not that catchy.
c6,x6(8GB) are the new and better upcoming models..
but those who are having it will cherish this model as they are attached to this phone.
