a major flaw that the review wont mention is that, like many nokia phones, dust gets behind the screen. In a couple of months the screen looks terrible and watching videos sucks...
my phones display is dim when compared to other 5800's . And the phone became overheated playing video, recording and connected with pc for dialup connection.....i went to nokia care,,,,,,,,they sent to delhi and repaired....after this repair the display lost its brightness....i checked it with other xm.......i am going to return this phone nokia care.........is there anyone having similar problem >?
Great phone! Very pleased with its handling and performance. Also, since upgrade to fw 4.0 it is even better! Everyone please upgrade your firmware!
Only gripe is no "mark several items" which i miss from my sony ericsson. only a minor thing, apart from that, 10/10!
what are u expecting more than this from a phone?
Why would anybody comment not to buy it?
On my opinion it's totally superb and all your needs will be responded in one little instrument.
If you need something to take quality shots with go spend some money and have a handy camera for god's sake

Fil, 02 Mar 2010Nokia journey from Symbian 40 series to Symbian 60 series version 1,2 & 3 was interesting ... moreyes, i do agree wif u fil, S60v5 is not as gd as other os, namely apple's os and android. but i tink nokia is leading d way by making maemo its os. i hope to see that in future. the screenshots n all looked gd, jus hope that functions are as gd as the screenshots. other software developers should initiate by making new softwares n thinking outside of the box. that way, it'll be more exciting for s60v5 users to experience the capabilities of tis os.
I bought my unit to a registered nokia shop..after few days of using, camera display failed..after that, i return my unit to the shop for warranty,i've waited 5weeks before I've got the phone..gosh when I got home and use the camera, it's still the same..still camera failed..
it's almost 3mons since i bought this unit..and i didn't enjoyed it much..3mons without even using the unit! what a cellphone!!!at this very moment, i wan't to sue that nokia shop for selling me that kind of phone..is there anyone knows how to sue a nokia shop locally?here in philippines..
Nokia and Dracula have one thing in common. They both suck. Dracula sucks blood whereas Nokia sucks people's money.
Good hardware needs to be complemented with smart software (OS) and vice versa.
Nokia E-series device running on winmo platform or android would be very exciting. Is that possible? Give it a try at least.
Nokia journey from Symbian 40 series to Symbian 60 series version 1,2 & 3 was interesting and fun. But its S60v5 (touch screen) which has failed to take the banton ahead due to boring user interface and stiff competition from other touch phones with different OS. As it is said,"you must not rest on your laureals" holds true in Nokia's case.
Nokia have to really work hard in the touch phone category. S60v5 hasn't enjoyed the same success what earlier versions enjoyed.
