In summary, the phone is great. GPS very accurate, pictures good, calls good quality. Few software handicaps like our ATT Samsung Impression. Touch screen is just right, unlike hypersensitive Impression- I couldnt use it! I really like the ability to use a stylus, even tho I thought it would be girlie before I used it. Much better using a stylus on internet pages tiny boxes, than my clumsy fingers like I must with my iTouch. Note Bluetooth doesnt work well with less than its rated V2.0 accessory, like with the Plantronics 510 (V1.5). Also, with software V21.x, the phone will start dropping calls after about 4 days of continuous on. Pull the battery to reboot & its OK. Browser works very well, battery life good. Unlock button can be activated in pockets while walking, then screen can be activating things. It needs a hard to push unlock button like the Impression. Doesnt keep asking you every three seconds if you want to spend money on a data connection like the Impression (using Google maps, etc). Google maps EXCELLENT on it!(PS- wife LOVES the Impression!)Great to use any MP3 as a ring tone.
i watch these comments with utter astonishment. how is that for the same phone, we have so many different opinions? people who love it say nokia is the best and people who hate it/love other phones say that its completely waste!!!!
i have this phone and i havent found any problems with it so far...it fulfills whatever a multimedia phone is made of...great music, affordable price , very good battery life and very good camera ( after V30 firmware)
people who wants so much eye candy and animations are better off without this phone...go for apple or samsung or htc phones...
this is a practical phone for all practical purposes..

i am only telling this for new people who want to buy it...read the gsmarena review and whatever they say is true..and the bugs/limitations they mentioned WILL be fixed with firmwares..

Once and for all, can anyone tell me if this phone has some ''bad'' issues, like frequent hanging up, freezing, very poor battery life, etc? After reading many opinions in this forum, I honestly don't know. I am looking for a phone to replace my LG Viewty (very nice phone), because I need with some frequency the GPS (professional reasons), so Would like to have some opinions about this phone's GPS behaviour. Thanks in advance, and a very good summer to all!

I would like to ask all the 5800XpressMusic users that "Does this phone guarantees an easy handling technique like any other buttoned keypad phones or is it very bulky to handle and manage with an already made perception of a touch phone?"
