I really hate this phone.I upgraded from my 5310 which I love.Compared with the 5310 the 5800 is slow,more difficult to manage,and it won't let you load apps.In fact it wouldn't even let me access my voice mail!
I was so looking forward to getting this phone but sadly after days I returned.On the plus side it's brilliant for listening to music!
Mark, 16 Dec 2009What about the SMS?Will it vry anoying?becaus of full touch screen?(mean its vry slow in typin... moreIt is more comfortable to type sms on 5800 than any other phones with keypad... try it then u will believe :)
sorry forgot to mention one more strange thing i found out is that the units relaeased after sep 2009 firmware shows v21 and when you try to update it shows no update is available.
the units release between jan and sep 2009 were good with all the accessories intact and also the camera sensor was really carl zeiss. but the units released after sep 2009 are fake, the box says carl zeiss but actually its the same sensor which is in 5530 xm.
i took photos from both the units and found out the difference. nokia now really are cheating the customers of this handset which used to be a good one.
if you really wanted a carl zeiss branded camera go for something like n86,n97 etc.
Ganesh..., 17 Dec 2009Hi!this is ganesh last 03 months back i was purchased this phone it is good, but as per my rev... more(1)Music volume isn't that low.In public places use headphones preferably of a renowned brand.
(2)Shorter data cables give better speed due to high SNR.
(3)Camera should perform better outdoors as lens aperture value is high F3.7
Aruna, 16 Dec 2009Too many Software problems..what's the problem ms.Aruna.
Key *#0000# into your phone's home screen.
Select Options > Check for updates.
Follow the on-screen prompts until your update is complete!
Hi!this is ganesh last 03 months back i was purchased this phone it is good, but as per my review
1).The input & output sound was very low.
2)Data cable was very short length.
3)camara clarity was not good as per 3.2MP.
so rest of all like video clarity, and data support etc was good and i like this phone.
jul, 16 Dec 2009yes i did ,i have converted mkv file to mp4 avc and leave to default and the resolution to 640... morealright if you are unable to fiddle with tvc, there are lot of converters like format factory which has in built settings for 5800, and most of the new phones. just google for it and install it. and the best thing is it is free... so you dont have to crack it like tvc. but all the files, mkv, avi, flv, wmv, all of them, played in 5800.
Frank, 16 Dec 2009Got a new 5800 battery only lasts 24 hours. All applications are shut down, Have i got a dogey... morehey frank, practically it should last at least 48 hours....with 5-6 hours of music over headphone just make the light senser option to the min, so the screen is bright only when it is required.
This Phone Is Really Nice, I Am Using It and found no problem at all. Hats Off to NOkia 5800 XM

do i have to pay for it?or it is already pre-installed in the new 5800?
Hey everyone i bought this phone about three months ago. The phone is good. However when you rotate the secreen it is very slow the sound is awesome and it has a goood memory. Sometimes when i text the screen freezes and goes purple?? I turn it off and back on then it is fixed but that only happens sometimes. The touch sensitivity isnt very good either you have to double push everything except when you text. I think that you dont get your moneys worth with the nokia 5800.
