hey pinoys out there..can anyone tell me if the version 30 is already updated on the philippines? i finally bought one and updated the firmware to v.21 from v.11 using the pc software updater on my pc.. why is it that the available latest firmware is only v.21? can anyone tell me why it isn't v.30?
The best phone I have used till date. It has got everything I was looking for. God bless NOKIA...
Killersmith, 03 Aug 2009Is it just me ....or the camera has really improved. I think the night mode is better in v30.Mate, which country are you from? For how long has the new firmware been released in your country? I live in Australia and still we're struggling with the v21.

Musarat, 03 Aug 2009Its good, but no better than iPhone!!Quoted from BusinessWeek
--- "The new Nokia 5800 XpressMusic handset certainly looks like an iPhone. Same rounded corners, similar screen, and of course software operated with the touch of a finger. But don't—repeat, don't—call it an iPhone killer. With 40% of the global handset market, Nokia (NOK) is not in the business of copying puny rivals such as Apple (
AAPL). Rather, Anssi Vanjoki, Nokia's executive vice-president for markets, calls the 5800 a "youth-oriented multimedia product made very affordable to the target audience of heavy music consumers."
So how does the 5800 compare with the iPhone? It's more sophisticated in some ways, less so in others. The more compact 5800 has a one-finger touch screen, in contrast to the iPhone, whose surface can handle input from two fingers simultaneously. The iPhone's two-finger interface lets users do cool things, such as easily shrink or expand images on the screen. On the other hand, the 5800, unlike the iPhone, has a screen that vibrates ever so gently when you touch it, providing subtle confirmation that the device is responding to your command.
The 5800's inner workings also are more advanced. (Saying such things always generates hate mail from iPhone fans.) It's a fact that Nokia has much more experience than Apple—or anybody else, for that matter—in packing an astonishing number of radios and other electronics into a small package and making everything work reliably."
when i transfer data (word,pdf..) by bluetooth from pc to 5800(mobile phone). my mobile phone 5800 XpressMusic) does not support with these files. please give me the instruction.

Anonymous, 02 Aug 2009I had installed an application on my 5800, but it never work, when I press it nothing happen, ... moreUN-INSTALL Appalications
Go to Menu>Settings> Application Manager>Installed appalications>select the application you want to Un install>Uninstall
althouth 5800 is best mobile in music express series, but i am not happy with loudness of sound through earphone provided. it's even very lower than 5130, which is about 1/3 in price of 5800. even it's loudness is lower than 5610XM. is this only for my unit or u guys hav same feeling??
but overall this mobile is a champion... & value for money..
Anonymous, 31 Jul 2009Which is better 5800 or n95????5800 and N95. I have both. And I use them at the same time.
I can't say which is better for they both serve their own purpose for me very well.
I use my N95 as my main mobile, and for taking photos. I use it to listen to music from time to time. It's a GREAT OVERALL mobile.
I use my 5800 for listening to music and watching videos. Surfing the net. I havent used the 5800 to take photos as of yet. And I use it as back-up mobile. Its a GREAT MULTIMEDIA mobile.
I will say AGAIN that choosing the better phone will depend on your lifestyle..
If you want an overall satisfaction, if you are a snap-happy person then GO for the better camera of the N95. If you like listening to music and watching videos, then go for the battery life and bigger screen of th 5800.
Guys when asking which is better, keep this is in mind:
1. What am I looking for in a mobile?
2. How and How much I will use a certain feature.
3. Price VS. Functionality
4. Choosing the better mobile will alway depend on you.
