Apple: First phone ever launched by Apple is Iphone, no prior experience in the telecom market. It’s a novice in the market with a very less market share despite having millions of Iphone sold.
Almost all the major brands around the world like Samsung, HTC, LG, etc launched their touchscreen smartphones with a hope to beat Apple’s Iphone. No-one came close to Iphone when it comes to looks, style, feel and features.
This is the first time a tech giant like Nokia has hit it hard with its first true touchscreen smartphone. Nokia 5800 is a real Iphone killer with way ahead features, perfect looks and great price.

Hi People. I recently purchased this phone. I just want to draw you attention to this issue. The phones' casing and the quality of manufacturing is pathetic. I can't believe , the phone actually makes a creaking noise when the touch screen is pressed at certain points. Do all of you guys feel the same ?
* Limited 3rd party software availability
* UI is still immature with somewhat dodgy user experience
* Touchscreen sensitivity not the best in the class
* No smart dialing
* Poor image quality and no GPS geotagging (geotagging is now added via firmware update)
* Touch web browser not quite polished
* No voice-guided navigation license
* No office document editing out-of-the-box
* Doesn't charge off microUSB
