Guys and experienced users of this phone and other Nokia touchscreen flagships, please help me out. I am about to buy a touchscreen phone and my budget is 10 to 13K. I found that 5530 and 5800 are fit in this budget but I couldn't decide finally which one to buy.
I have few doubts about 5800. As it is comparatively old in market and Nokia's early touchscreen, I feel it might not be as much good as new devices like 5530. Correct me if I am wrong. I want to know how much the difference is in the touch screen quality of both these phones. Also as I read in reviews here, 5530 and new symbian touchscreen phones have more polished and enhance UI than 5800 though 5800 is pushed with similar firmware upgrade recently. Is this difference that much noticeable, I mean does 5800's user interface looks dull compared to 5530 or is difference really negligible?
Also I want to know difference in between music, camera and display quality of both this phones if any.
I won't bother lack of 3G in 5530. What I want is good camera (3.15 MP at least), better touch sensitivity and user interface. Please help me to choose my device on this points and clear my doubts. I regret I am inexperienced to Nokia's touch phones. Help me.
does anyone know what it could be when the hanset freezes up while leaving a application on the unit i had to take out the battery for it come right(work),its working now but all the messages disappeared sms and all my emails gone it was stored on the memory card is there a chance i can get it back ?????? does all the 5800 xpressmusic units come with the coupon to active download music from the nokia music store for free , or does that only count for some of the units ? annie from south african
now dis C6 will completely take over 5800..... wat fone dat is guys..... pricing may play a great role...... but wat v r listing is nokia is in a mood to stop 5800.... its been out in mrket for almost 1.5yrs...one of d longest produced fones after n95...... i'll definately buy C6
I had this phone for a week before it was stolen : (. I was very impressed with it. Sound quality is great, huge amounts of apps, wlan, 8gb card ect.. It cost me 2900 rand (South Africa) which is a great deal for what you get. The camera suffers and is incredibly bad when the light is not great, but other then that i have had no problems with it. Now just in the process of saving for it again : ). If you are considering getting it i would say go for it top phone
5233_Fan , 12 Apr 2010It Seems to be good that Nokia finally starts giving the WH-205 headset with this mobile(Later... moreS'never going to happen, not with a super budget mobile. The only reason you would buy a 5230 or its wifi counterpart the 5530 is because you can't afford to buy a 5800, or its just cheaper in general. (with no offence intended to any who owns either of the cheaper ones). Cheap phone = Cheap kit.

well, u can either use the pc suite, connect ur old headset and browse through the contacts, copy all the contacts on the pc, and then connect ur 5800XM to ur pc, and then paste back the contacts under the contacts session. this will do the trick. i've personally done that.
or maybe u can sync both the phones. it should be easy as well.
hope tis helps:-)

Anonymous, 12 Apr 2010Can anybody tell me, how many messages can 5800 store(based on experience) with slowing down a... moremy 5800xm have approximately 4300 msgs saved in different locations (inbox, sent, drafts, and personal folders). message operation (opening, closing msgs) decreased to around 45% compared to having 1000 msgs. opening a msg will roughly take 2 seconds, with 4300 msgs. i think ds phone can handle several thousands more msgs bcoz memory is dynamically shared. meaning, let's say d msg memory storage is set to internal and has 30mb free, maybe 5800 can save an additional 30000 msgs(?) since a typical SMS occupies like 1kb on d drive. overall performance not affected at all.
Gr8 phone. Been susing it for a year now. Some ppl have complained of software issues.. But non for me. Its got all the features that you could possibly want.Wireless is gr8...and the 8gb mem & Music Player is Awesome.I dont need an Ipod or other mp3 players...I can do evrything on the 5800 itself !! Top notch for the price..

its gr8 in music series..but not for images its has very poor quality camera...(3.2 MP quality is not good )
its one of the biggest disappointed for 5800 fans
