I bought my Nokia 5800 last April 27. In our country it was PHP 17,500 or USD 365. Now the price has dropped to PHP 16,000 or USD 334. So I think its worth to buy it now or you'll just wait by December if nokia store or other 3rd party vendor offers a Lower Price on it...
As of now for 4 months, I am very pleased with this gadget... =)
People, please help me, I have a question about this phone, I live in Mexico and the oficial price is ridiculous, they are selling it for about 750 dolars, but an online community is selling it for 350 dolars, the main difference is that they call it "Europe Version" or "Edition Black", and the lack of the blue/red stripe around the phone. My question is: is this an oficial edition from Nokia? I´m still searching in the web, but I haven´t found anything that confirms or denies it. Please help me, I don´t wish to pay an outrageous cost for this phone.
Rohan, 30 Aug 2009Can anyone tell me a very good camera phone around 100 us dollars?u can contact me rohankhan@o... moreI went to the Phone Finder (press advanced search at the top-right corner) and searched for phones with prices up to 150USD and cameras with 3MP or more.
From a few, and looking at the review from GSMArena, I'd say the LG KF600 has a pretty good camera.
Good luck with your phone finding.
Don, 30 Aug 2009The LG GM 200 have better sound than 5800 xm . You dont believe me please try . Very cheap rm 440.00Don't have the GM200 phone, but by GSMArena's own words the sound quality of the 5800 is "some of the industry's best".
Even if the Gm200 does have a 2.1 speaker setup and Dolby Surround Sound Technology, that's all.
They're not on the same class.
The 5800 is still very good in regards to sound quality, it's a smartphone, has a better video support, plus a bigger screen, comes with an 8GB memory card, it's memory card slot can read cards up to 16GB (compared to the measly 2GB read limit the GM200 has), alot more input methods, better resolution and I'll bet picture quality, has 3G, GPS, WLAN and TV-out, has a better camera with better video recording capability, can read and edit documents, has a secondary camera, better games and phonebook, and having S60 it has one big user community, always making great new games, themes and applications.
So all the GM200 has going for it is the speakers, which as good as they might be, don't make up for even a tenth of what the 5800 has in terms of features, besides having great speakers as well.
The GM200 is an mp3 player with the most basic phone capabilities. Hence the small price.
BTW, my mp3 player (can also watch videos) has 8GB of internal memory, with a slot for a card of up to 16GB, and has a 2,5 inches screen, which is bigger than the GM200's 2,0 inches.
So for a music phone, the GM200 is quite lacking in regards to memory. Even if it can hotswap memory cards, it's still a hassle because of the 2GB limit.
Roughly speaking, they're not on the same word, line, paragraph, chapter, book, bookshelf, section, wing or even library.
