I was waiting to get nokia 5630 since feb, but due to its inavailability in india, i finally choose 5800 and bought it two days back from chennai for 13.9k inr and got the sennheiser headset and reebok sunglasses free with it.
I really have to admit that this piece from nokia is a real eye catcher. Even people who use n series are so thrilled to see it.
The music quality is superb with any good headset other than the nokia original. Superb fidelity and bass. Videos of 640x360 at 30fps can be played on this cell to drop jaws around u.
The camera is average but not bad. At night its horrible with noise. Video rec is cool at dvd clarity of 640x360 at 30fps.
The s60 os is really cool too. It switches apps and runs them fastr than s40's. U will never feel that it has a s60 os compared to the older nokia smartphones.
Batter lasts barely a day with extremely heavy use and 2 with normal use.
I am even typing all this stuff from my 5800. Its rated the best in gsmarena polls also.
I really enjoy using this cell, the display, music clarity, video playback clarity, net browsing on the huge screen with touch are the keyfeatures for which i chose this phone.
The gps even works great. You will never regret on music clarity if u get this phone, though some people may not like the touch interface, but i totally love this phone. Have v30 now and got info on net that a newer version is coming in october with ks and new stuff.

Anonymous, 02 Oct 2009thnks but wht is the reason, well my cousin in USA also having same phone, he has updated with... moreu r welcome, but reason unkown. i guess nokia planning for a major update in near future thatswhy v31 released for limited regions. but no worries as v31 has nothing new except updated maps & ovi which we can update manually also, the another difference in v31 is bit speed in RAM and SSENSOR thats all my friend. so current v30 is still better

Rajiv, 01 Oct 200914700 or 13700. kindly confirm.5800 price is only rs13509. Its rock wit music and touch screen
does this firmware version 31.xxx contains the new homescreen (contats bar + shortcuts bar)?
because i have the update installed and it seems nothing changed (i have to choose between the contacts and shortcuts)
I bought this phone yesterday(1st OCT 09) , and I must admit that the phone is indeed beautiful, the finish is solid and really looks good in your hand.
The hardware and software combination (Symbian 60 5th ed) are matching the phone is very responsive.
The camera is crappy though.. This phone is not for shutterbugs, (any shutterbug worth his salt should be carrying a DSLR, no phone can do justice to photography with a digital zoom).
Enough said, with the price tag of 13.5K INR ,Delhi/NCR this bundle is worth the upgrade, and should serve your tech requirements in the years to come.

No 3G, poor display under direct sun light etc. 5530 however is more compact than5800 as it fits comfortably in your palm. kinetic scrolling, 20 contacts bar, nice look etc. are 5530 advantages. 5800 comes with 8gb memory card and 5530 is packed with 4gb card. Remaining features almost same in both the phones including price. ha ha.. Its your choice now my friend. I purchased 5800 recently and quite happy with it.
