The latest version 4****5 works fine but it is better to format the memory card before the upgrade, since certain software's installed on your memory card may have compatibility issues with the upgraded firmware... The firmware is not perfect and pretty soon Nokia will release a better upgrade... People who are having memory card issues would have to format their memory cards and start from scratch... the same solution for people who are unable to synchronize the music library after the upgrade... Refrain from installing too many applications because you end up filling the registry and the phone has to maintain all threads... Check your bluetooth settings and internet settings to enhance battery life, turn them off when not needed... you can also enhance battery life by switching to GSM only mode which most wouldn't prefer but it makes a significant difference overall...
All music lovers using Nokia 5800XM should try Nokia's stereo bluetooth headset BH-905 which will take you to the next level of musical entertainment...
When is the new firmware update coming ?????????????????????????????????????????????
HOW much time will it take,
IS IT REALLY COMING OR NOT

Anju, 12 Mar 2010Tnks for yo information buddy .n could u infrm me hz the cam .facility .?Dear Anju, Please read my detailed review for not only camera, but all other features details. hope you will enjoy :-)
Anju, 12 Mar 2010Tnks for yo information buddy .n could u infrm me hz the cam .facility .?It is a gr8 buy. U need to bear with some freeze & hangs though. Feels a bit unstable to me (unlike typical nokias which well known for stability & reliablity). i havent seen many smart phones, but it is certainly better than my cousin's Asus windows phone which hangs for every day!. (this is better, in an average i can say it hangs once or twice in a week ;-) LOL). But its really an irritating problem. yiu have to pull out the battery & memory card then start the phone. push the mem card after it boots, wait for it to fix mem card, wiat until its ready for usage. totally its 10 mins job & when you are in hurry, it really sucks!.
but all other features are lovable. -
Battery life:- is excellent for any average usage. (new phone-1st charge should be 8Hrs & it needs 5-6 dis-re-charge cycles for the battery to come into rhythm.
Apps:- excellent apps avialable most of them free/ trial/ limited/ sponsored. but some of them are paid/to be subscribed. However, for me only free themes/wallpapers/apps are sufficent.
GPS Navigation- Good. Maps lifetime free. GPS nav i haven;t tried.
Music:- excellent!. capable media player. good sound quality on a good quality earphones. the nokia earphone supplied with phone is pure bul*sh*t; scrap it! & buy a good sony/ sennheiser/bose whatever ) on TV/Audi out, u can listen music on any speaker/tv.
Video- Good. but not so impressive as phone struggles with big files. u shud wait patiently , shud not load it with several clicks. i.e. dont open/close/back/ too many videos at a time & when video is played, dont open many apps. if done so guaranteed that phone hangs & sucks!, on TV out video is fairly enough for short clips. little blur, so watching full movie may lead to headache.
Phone: basic need is a cell phone & it does good in its job. However UI is not mature like iphone/samsung/htc etc. full of inconsitancies in the menus & UI. but manageable, not too ugly. Build quality is average. platicky & not rich looking. but for the cost, it is fine.
Touch screen sensitivity is good, though not the best in class.
Wifi :- gr8 job!. connecting is so easy. but the built in browser is not so mature. so is Opera mini (free download). Still in search of a good browser. sceen is too small for browsing. get pain in eyes after 10mins of browsing.
Camera :- 3.1 MP. It is good (though not excellent) Takes good snaps in daylight & average snaps in night/low light.(change to night mode) Takes great videos too in good lighting. what more do you expect?
Dont mix your phone needs & camera needs. Dont race for megapixels. look at the photo quality. MPs define only the printable size of photo, not the quality. quality depends on the image processing s/w, hardware/ lens etc. Even the best mobile camera cant match the dumbest digital camera bcoz mobile cam tecnology is totally diff from digicam in terms of their lenses & hardware & software like image stabilization/autofocus/scene detection etc. Cell camera uses bouble type lense & can't do any hardware opeartions. Only software features like digital zoom possible.
so, dont look at the camera performace hile chosing a cell phone.
All in all - a middle class "value for money" phone. You will love it if you arent bothered by "not so stable" Symbian OS on it. Though it meets your need for now, its certainly not a phone for future. You can use it for couple of years & then change. since you will be bored then... bcoz smart phone industry is becomming focus of every mobile & computer mfgs. Lot of innovation & growth happening. things become obsolete so soon. so, go & grab now. Enjoy till you get bored or satisfied.

There are only 2 versions - Xpressmusic & Navigation(sames as Xpressmusic but comes with lifetime gree gps navigation, all other features are same)
