Have had the phone for a few months now, cool gadget overall but I am very upset with the lack of software for this device (and I suppose all Symbian devices). Goddamnit, yes there is a pdf reader and supposedly other office tools but they all cost. The worst is the lack of a decent video player; RealPlayer just sucks so much words aren't enough. All sorts of half-arsed workarounds are offered online, but really having scoured through a lot of pages looking for free and working apps I can say there is just a void in this regard. Download section on phone is useless, as are most websites that promise so much.

Could someone tell me if this model has a graphic equalizer and how to find it? I checked it at the shop but could not find nor the salesman could show it to me. I aslo need to know how the music sounds on it?
Would you also suggest if I should buy it or go for Nokia 95?
to all of you asking about the processor.
once you update it with firmware version 20 and above it will automatically be overclocked to 434mhz.
gsmarena is right, the phone comes with 369mhz from factory, only after you update it will it have 434mhz.
it is official, go take a look at nokia forums.
Hello, I have got this phone from april and no faults or errors occured. So please if you wishing to go for this phone, then close your eyes and take it anytime..
Its really a cool phone..

When you select the phone memory again, the inboxes magically reappear.

i have been with n97 and 5800 and 5800 with 3.0 update rocks n97 bugs will get fixed with update too
i cant talk bout 5530 since i havent been in conctact with it
Nokia touch phones suks... first look through 5800; it has cheep camera, even vga camera is better than that,slow gui and touch screen is not so friendly and have a wifi error and browser is very irritating.
Now we look on 5530, it is nice but same bilions of problem, to high in price, not front camera no GPS and so irritating design even the main buttons like end call, recive call and menu button are touch interface which is really a bad thing.
Some one tell nokia that they are not like to be like Apple, they got gesture and guts which u dont have,u r born to make strieght phone. Touch screen phones are not kinda r type. Please stop dissgrace people u cannot be able to make a perfect touch screen phone. and if u do then price is much high.. What do u want to do???
Nokia, please give some perfect not a perfect crap... i'll suggest to not buy 5800 neither 5530 nor n97, it also have some diffect, like face book issue. slow GUI, and obviously to high price.
i update my 5800.after update the menu button's light double blinks.i dont know why.i dont find any reason for that blinking.is any one help me.
does N5800 has the msg 'reminder' feature like most samsung handphone has?
5800 had upgraded to 434 MHz processor speed and have kinetic scroll?
Please reply... thx
