Even I like samsung Jet. But, It's more expensive than this. and it has it's own spec and its own problems too. If its better than this, that only for the extra money you pay.

True the 5800 isnt as flexible as a windows mobile device Like the HTC tytn2 in the sense of doing everything your PC can, but to be honest I'm starting to realise that alot of that was just clutter I never used on my old phone.
I thought the HTC had a good speaker for music but the 5800's blows it away, although the mediaplayer style playlist means playing a homemade compilation album is a right pain, as it sorts all the songs into original album titles so you cant just click the folder and play all. However I plan on getting powermusic3 which does this (at the princely sum of £8).
Its not quite as intuitive to use as a winmob device or Android, but its still no nonsense and easy to reach stuff, it might just take a couple of extra clicks.
The touch screen is waaay better than my oldTytn2's and I dont think theres a massive difference to the iphones of my mates, its just a slightly different amount of force or pause you have to use. The only big difference is that this doesnt have the multi touch option for zooming etc. but with a zoom button at the side, a double tap 3 preset zoom option AND a webpage overview option it really isnt missed.
The camera is faaaar Better than anything HTC can offer even now. Its certanily good enough for "recording the moment" or facebook entries. Plus you have 30fps video recording.
Text input is very easy and the full qwerty screenpad doesnt make too many mistakes, is only slightly slower to type in than if you had a physical keyboard and unlike others I find it easy to tap the screen to get the cursor between letters. The alphanumeric pad is great for typing while on the move too.
Internet browsing is easy, probably easier than my old HTC and I love the way it displays a stacked overview of each previous page when you tap back, but its a shame that while you can toggle between open webpages there seems like theres no option to actually open fresh pages, only toggle between those that have been created as pop ups!
Big hurrah for a far better phone keypad than on my old HTC and no accidental program opening while on the phone what with the proximity sensor.
A BIG bug bear I had with the HTC was that the alarm would only work if the phone was on, so at Night you couldnt turn the phone off. Not the case here. Also the calendar on Winmobile never gave you a preview of what was planned on each day unless you physically opened the day. The Nokia allows you to scroll through the month view and see whats happening each day.
Conectivity to your PCs outlook is great, so Calendar events, contacts, internet favourites etc all work seamlessly once transferred across. One annoyance is when swapping contacts from the HTC to the new phone via sim the HTC the contacts automatically save surname first whichyou can change in settings, but when you swap the SIM to the Nokia they are shown with the surname under the firstname and vice versa and theres no setting to swap them all round at once. This is more a problem with the HTCs organising and I could probably have solved it by swapping contacts through outlook.
Downsides: No office apps as standard and it looks like its £27 to download them (and I dont use them that often! maybe only once a month to write lists and lyrics). The copy and paste is ok (and at least its there, unlike the iphone I believe), but it is relatively basic in comparison to windows mobile and isnt available on everything. Ovi maps is a great app to have on there, the GPS picks up REALLY fast and is incredibly accurate. You can run your music etc at the same time and both continue to work even if they are in the background, but whilst its now free for audio instructions and turn by turn navigation (which google maps doesnt offer), the proggy seems to take you very weird ways to your destination, so TomTom will be going on soon (are s60 models backwards compatible with old TomTom versions etc??? [smiley=dunno.gif])
...and I have had one freeze.
I got an orange update where I had to turn off the phone then turn it back on and it froze. I thought it was because the battery was almost dead when I was notified and that I had buggered it because it had gone flat mid update, so I was in a strop for the rest of the night that the phone was frozen on the Nokia Logo, even if you took the battery out, then in or put it on charge ( I could almost swear also that whe looking at the nokia Logo the screen inside the casing is ever so everso not level but I could be wrong, its too small to make any difference). I finally tried removing the battery AND the SIM and putting them back and since then I've had no other issues.
Overall this phone does all the things people expect of modern phones and most of them it does better than the average person would expect. Better still I can still use it on my motorbike with gloves on if I'm pausing at the side of the road without having to take my glove off like you would with a capacitive screen. The i-phone and androids seem to have far more gimmicks that make using it as a toy fun but if you want something that still resembles a phone rather than a PC, but that does all the things an i-phone can do, just in a more traditional set out (not neccesarily worse), I say this is a fantastic device.
Now lets hope that the reports of freezing software are overplayed!!! :o ;)
This is goin out to all the readers of the post, and of course to nokia.
the most feature packed phone in the market. No complains abt any of the features.
The thing with the phone is, its buggy. I hope a few more updates should cover that up. Other than that i hav been using this phone for 4 months now, and i am really pleased. The phone has surpassed my experience with the e71. This phone just needs bug fixes like songs vanishing from the library and browser crashing from heavy sites. And its a bit slow. But it exceeds my expectations each and every mornin when i get up and start my phone. So just fix the bugs and all owners of this phone will rejoice. And we all are eager that when will we be able to port maemo and s^3 to our phones. Finally, this one goes out to nokia, nokia has done a gr8 job of producing such a phone. Just keep posting those firmware updates.
P.S. I wrote all of this on my nokia 5800 .
my 5800 was working fine even after upgrading to v 40/ But now when connect to the computer, the phone is not detected in ovi music player mode. I am not able to transfer the music from computer to device or vice versa because the phone is not detected even after changing the mode to media transfer. what should I do?
