Since its build on the Nokia Symbian S60, themese are available by the dozens. Some themes can give you the battery and signal strength in %age. I normally use sites like ownskin.com to get themes. This one has a good colection.
To be truly Honest, this phone sucks to the core.
Nokia released this model only to compete with the iPhone. The phone lags all the time, even while browsing through the menu. Its very own music application of guitar and piano lag and you cant play a thing on it. Also the phone displays black, blue lines on the screen indicating that it is having software problem.
5800 is the retarded competition for the iPhone and buying this is no more less of a DISASTER !
DON'T BUY IT !

the display of my mobile is very poor.
every time i lock the phone( auto key lock) the display is not visible. i have to restart the phone to see the display again. so what must be done to solve this problem?
Hi pals, i bought this phone 2 weeks back, its simply AWESOME.Here are some detailed discriptions of every feature I experienced in the phone;
Handling and Design:
Its great..no doubt its a touch lcd phone so has a bigger dimensions,but the phone with touch screen must hav large lcd so dat u can perform ur tasking..it has 3.2" lcd which is great, secondly about the design which is also good, or u can say it could b little more elegant..this feature lacks in it.according to the price of the phone.but may b they hav kept its simple look bcoz its a phone for pro class users only.
Now there is some thing that has created some questions and doubt abt the sensitivity of its LCD to some users as compared to the dat of iphone, I want to clear that, i hav used iphone and simply there is no clear cut difference in the lcds of both these phone..the lcd of iphone is made as such it is only responsive to ur fingers and nothing else as pen,stylus or anything..it wil only respond to ur finger touch..but the 5800 lcd is designed to respond to anything..and the more the thing is pointed the more accurate will be the response (as u know users, dont forget to calibrate the lcd from settings > phone > touch input) and it is SUPERB..and abt the clarity of lcd its awesome..with the pixels of 360 x 640 and 16 million colors..u can clearly think..its GREAT.
Software and applications:
I bought it with version 21 installed and hav not yet updated it, using the phone for almost whole the day for 2 weeks..and havnt yet experinced any firmware issue..regading hanging, crashing or restarting of the phone..the tasking is very smooth and satisfactory.
Now comes the most important thing our generation likes to know..sms stuff, dear readers..the texting of this phone.regarding typing speed and overall functionality of messaging is very good..u can use 4 different ways to type msg..by full screen qwerty keyboard, mini screen qwerty keyboard, handwriting (no doubt with the supplied stylus) and alphanumeric keypad (as in usual phones) the last option is very fast for typing msg of all others, and the full screen qwerty keyboard method as well..but there is only one problem on which nokia must think before releasing their up coming firmware for this phone.."the addition of sms counter and graphical smiley options" which lacks in the messaging options of this phone...its very important..and they hav missed in it,. and now I want to discus something abt the memory of sms that it can hold...u know frm the specifications already mentiond in the gsmarena that it has 81mb of internal mem and 8gb mem card supplied..
about 2500 text messages make 1 mb...u can imagine how much msgs it can hold...u select phone mem or card mem from the options..the effective phone mem is 70 mb which is more than enough for this purpose..and abt the card..its no need to say...its UNLIMITED
The camera of the phone is satisafctory i'll say...as mentioned in may reviews its not as good as some one can expect from 3 mega pixels and carl zeiss lens..is quite true..they must do something for the betterment of the camera..from the next firmware update.
Music and sound:
SIMPLY GREAT.it has stereo speakers.very clear and loud..also supplied with 3.5mm jack, u can attach external speakers as well.
It has 81 mb internal phone mem and 8 gb mem card..which is more than enough to hold lots of music files, videos, images, applications and much more..u will never regret the phone memory.
As u know it has 1350mAH battery installed, which is very powerful, but if any one complaining abt the quick draining of the battery...u must know that if u buy and new electronic accessory with rechargeable lithium battery...must follow this:
use the item uptil the full draining of the pre charge of the new battery and then recharge the phone while off..then use the phone till again the battery fully discharged and again recharge it while keeping it off...repeat it once more...i mean total charges u do by keeping the phone off are..first 3 charges...later do next 2 or 3 charges by keeping the phone on..but perform full charges as well this time...and later after whole this procedure..u are ready to use ur phone or accessory with ANY TIME ANY DURATION recharge phenomena. and ur accessory battery wil work with is full efficiency.
I was one of the lucky persons to buy 5800XM for the first time in Bangladesh (on the very first day of launching.But i am not happy with the operating system. There are so many limitations of the new version of operating system.
Whenever i set my home screen as shortcut bar mode or basic mode, the dial and contact folders of homescreen does not work.
Even my green button does not work as re-dialer, I have to go to call log for redialing.
