leo, 25 Aug 2009What about the camera of this phone? Is it good or no? And about GPS, what maps are installed... moreif you have lower version than 30 then camera is medium, but if you have v30 then camera is good. it has GPS with built-in GPS antenna. it has nokia maps preinstalled and you can download google maps for free and no trial.

Kinetic scroling and 5530 homescreen are expected in the next firmware update.

What problems did you encounter on the 5800, is it true that it restarts on its own ... moreOnly bug that i have encounter is that accelometer was slow on response but with update 30. it was fixed and on the first units we got we had that infamous problem with the haering but whe shiped back teh whole series and they gived us fixed ones. If you lock your screen when inside a pocket there is no way taht you can turn it off. And bout hanging while in talk idk i have neva expirianced it. Hope that helps.
i have no screen problems, it won't hang or restars by itself. mine works very well and smooth. and 434 Mhz processor speed is true.

Now it's really making me mad. The new homescreen is there even in the low end touch screen like 5230 but my beloved 5800 doesn't have it for unknown reason. Both phone look exactly the same. I want that homescreen ASAP because i have spent 8000rs more for 5800 and i deserve that homescreen and kinetic scrolling in next firmware.

So, what do you recommend me ?
