Varma, 14 Dec 2009I have had this phone for a couple of days now. Tested almost all features of the phone.
He... moreYou must be a bit to expensive with your points...lol!
They made be cheaper giving for your SE or iphone!
I have had this phone for a couple of days now. Tested almost all features of the phone.
Here are some insights
1) Touch Screen - Recommend using the stylus or pluck. Fingers feel responsive if you have not experienced any high end touch phones before. I would give it a 7/10 for finger, 9/10 for stylus use
2) Interface - Not so advanced as the latest touch phones, but gets the job done in a decent way. Bit counfusing with double/single touches at different places, but should not be tough to get used to. I would give it a 7/10.
WLAN - Excellent. Have read revies about people not being able to use WLAN on this phone. Only 2 possible reasons - a) Bad signal b) Wireless Security (Encrypted Signal OR IP Filter on Wireless router). Would give it 9/10
3G - Do not have 3G so not tested it yet.
Bluetooth - File transfer works fine. Have tried to pair it with my SE bluetooth headset. sadly have not been able to do it. maybe there is a way out, still researching. Would give it a 7/10 though.
GPRS/EDGE - Good. would give it an 8/10
USB - Excellent. Remember to use safely remove device when connected to a PC, so as to avoid any memory card corruption. Would give it a 9/10
Very Good, except the music apps which are not so responsive. Some very good free apps from ovi store.Would give it an 8/10.
Themes are available off the internet, which are very good. Your handwriting may go blank on application of some themes, that is because the forecolor is set to white. So set it to some neutral colour like grey, and it would show up. Would give it an 8/10.
I somehow did not like the inbuilt browser, better check opera mobile for smartphones. It is a much better browser. Would give the browser experience a 6/10 for inbuilt browser and 8/10 with opera mobile, which is free btw.
7) Music - Excellent. But not with the bundled headphones. get a good substitute in ear headphones. I used the ones from my old walkman and they are exceelent. Would give it a 9/10
8) Video - Excellent. Check out the web for tutorials on how to convert any video to a compatible 5800 video. Choose MP4 with 720kbps for the video and 128kbps for the audio and you will know what i mean. Would give it a 9/10
9) Calender/Notes Very Good. Would give it an 8/10
10) File Manager Very Good. Would give it an 8/10.
Last but not the least, for the price there is no phone which comes even close. Very good visual appeal. Very responsive for the features it holds. Some glitches here and ther, but they should be off with a firmware update i hope. Using the v30 firmware btw.
Hope you liked the review.

shaan, 13 Dec 2009could you please tell...how can i hack my phone.& is it safe??
You do it on your own risk. Mind that warranty is void in this case. The process is a bit complicated and it's not posssible to discribe it in this forum. The only solution is to google it. You can easy find the full instructions online. First of all you need to get a developer's certificate for yourself. There are few different hacks that you can use, I am using HelloOPDA and it even survived firmware update. Usually when the manufacturer releases the firmware update the hack is not compatable and in some brands its almost impossible to hack again the phone.
Prashi, 11 Dec 2009I bought 5800 in October 2009. Initially I was using N73 ME. But gradually I was bored with th... moreThankyou for your explanation.

Calculated Costs of Just One Customer Complaint--
One disappointed customer represents 6 others who also are not happy. Those other 6 are just keeping their dissatisfaction a secret from you. One plus six is - 7.
We can count on the average disappointed customer to tell at least 9 others. Considering we have 7 dissatisfied customers from the one brave soul who told us we were not up to par, now 7 will tell 9 people each. From easy multiplication, that's 63 people who will hear about this negative experience. To keep the calculators away, round this to 64.
We know there is an assumed level of influence of 25%. Only one quarter of those 64 will act on what they hear. This means 16 people are likely not to purchase the products of a company who can't deliver satisfactorily, or who somehow communicate an attitude of rudeness or indifference. Nokia's case is no different.
