Hey, version 31 is out in some countries! I have updated already.
No kinetic scrolling though. The homescreen is the same. New nokia OVI maps (Incompatible with maps that already downloaded, so you will be prompted to delete them). Improved memory management (more Ram). Improved touch sensitivity. The hack survived the update.
Forgot to mention the W995 can also charge from USB, the 5800 can't.
But the 5800 can handle more apps :P
I own a SE W995 and Nokia 5800...although the W995 is non touch I'll post advantages of both:
Screen size is giant, with awesome quality
Stereo speakers are pretty good in sound
Video player is good with fullscreen and great quality video
Homescreen isn't crowded with text, unlike on W995, and is much more customisable
Much nicer looking FM radio
Better GPS sensitivity than W995
Better network reception than W995, does not drop internet when switching between 3G/2G
Better video recording than W995
Nicer web browser which handles most pages fine
Walkman player beats the Nokia one easily
Music keys on side make for easy control
Better Wifi implementation, good sensitivity
I prefer the Sony Ericsson status icons much more than the tiny Nokia ones, and they are much more informative
No annoying red light flash when taking photos, tiny red light when recording videos unlike 5800's distracting one
W995 Camera quality is millions of times better, no matter the resolution...5800's camera is BAD!
Stereo speakers are superior in sound
Battery life is a LOT better than 5800- I have to charge 5800 more than once a day often
Menu is easy and fast to find items, unlike 5800
I really don't know which one to use more :(
we're so eager to voice out our problems ang suggestions for nokia but i doubt it if they can hear us.

The nokia 5800 is a great phone. And Nokia is the top sellphones you get. It's opperating system is better then any other brand. But the decision is still yours.
Hey Friends.. I have visited the Nokia store today & what I came to know that Nokia 5800XM is now just in 13K... ...not in 16K.
there is only one way to fix this poor excuse of a phone. Smash it ,,and get a nother one.i did,and i havent looked back...nokias are behind the 8 ball compared to samsung,,lg,,even motorolla are making a comback.......nokia phones at present are of very poor build,,being made as cheap as possible, and it really shows...but hey,,if you like constant problems and the need for a thousand upgrades ,in an attempt to fix them,,,buy a 5800,,,and you too can be one of the million or so nokia stawllwarts ,who will spend countless hours typing #ooo*#*#000*#00000***#in an attemped to update,,,or taking of the back cover to remove the battery because its frozen,,or whats even more fun,,spending time at a nokia care centre,,again and again and again+1 more again,,,i loved doing that
I am interested in buying this phone, so I ask people who already have it..How good is the battery life? I am a normal user, mainly only use sms & phone calling. I might be inclined to chose an Lg, but their battery life is usually very poor. Also, how good to pics look on this phone? I'd like to hear a good review from someone who already has it.Thanks.
Guys I cannot update my office applications! Can anyone help may? it always fails and I cannot open the one i currently have.. I nneded that SO badly. it says purchase license available/purchase
I do not like my phone at all!! Much TOO difficult!! Anyone want to swop?
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970With the new firmware the processor has been reclocked to 434Mhz from 369Mhz of the old firmware. But the sad and rather embarrassing truth is that is runs only at 192Mhz. This is very strange because technically at 192Mhz it's supposed to be fairly slow which it isn't. Nokia must must explain this whether it actually runs at 192Mhz or at the claimed speed of 434Mhz.
I've just got to know that current models dose not have the TV-OUT function any more.
I've confirmed it from NOKIA CALL CENTER in INDIA.
in terms of new version software,the philippines is always been the last to have it.but in terms of sales,the philippines' always updated and most filipinos appreciate it.perhaps there's need not to trust it if they continue doing this.nokia phils. pls take action on this.thanks
