Deepak Kashyap, 29 May 2010I am an unfortunate owner of Nokia 5800. From the first day I was unsure about the claims of t... morethe Htc is sucks!5800 is a gud fon,jzt update it to a new version and it wili g give a satisfaction,tnx.
Been using this phone for the past 1 year (exactly) & I did recommend it to any1 wanting a feature packed cell in this range. The amount of available softwares make it fun to use & you always fell like having it in your hand for one reason or the other. I have also installed the Garmin XT navigation on it & also the Sygic Maps 9 (last week) - they both are phenomenal in their own ways. There are a load of other softwares in OVI store as well. It could do better with a higher performance camera, but you cant argue with its other impressive features. The touchscreen's been brilliant so far & i haven't used the stylus as fingers do the job perfectly. Although the iPhone is great in its own little way, the 5800 is clearly the winner hands down due the free softwares that are availabe unlike the iPhone for which you have to shell out for every touch u make. :P The 5800 was rightly quoted as the "iPhone Killer"! Kudos!
Robin027, 29 May 2010Hi guys....I'm luking 4 a phone with all features---decent cam,music,gps,wifi,gud browsing wit... moreits just the phone .. or if u r willing to spend just a bit more thers the n97 MINI . both these are excellent, & they do have excellent navigation software options such as garmin xt & sygic mobile 9 etc. available on the net.
I just bought my 1st 5800xm phone. It comes with latest firmware which is 5.0. I quite like this phone except its camera, A bit dull compare to SE hp.
Clear some points-
-The touchscreen is very responsive and accurate. No problems at all.
- Fring can be downloaded from fring.com. It allows Skype video calls to any skype user on PC or Phone.
-Video call camera is very good and quit smooth.
- The Main Camera is very good in daylight. Photos are good enough to print. Camera not so good at night.
- Quite thick phone but fits perfectly in the hand.
- No big software issues as long as you update firmware.
- Spb shell greatly increase UI and work smoothly.
