schady, 01 Aug 2009whats this proximitisensor? HELPAs this is a touch screen phone a proximity sensor is there to disable the screen when your face is next to it while you're on a call, the better to conserve battery life and prevent accidental button presses.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2009Obviously N79. 5800 only has a better screen, nothing else. Just look at n79, 5mpx camera, FM ... moreN79 is Obviosly a better choice for someone who's very keen on the camera and a few other aspects you have mentioned. That's the whole point of the N series. N series is the supreme level of Nokia, for those who can afford and for those who ACTUALLY use all the features provided.
But you cant mock the 5800 coz it does the job which it is designed for, MUSIC! plus it has a much bigger screen with higher resolution, equipped with the latest symbian operating system and so on. And it does offer good battery life.
not a very wise move there trying to compare the two phones which were built for different purposes. Nokia defines N series devices as MULTIMEDIA COMPUTERS. Things cant get any clearer than that...

Or you can use the "Downloads!" application do get the software but that would be also a trial version. So I suggest you pay for the thing and get it once and for all. It will come in handy coz you will be getting the signed application and the unlock code both in case you have to format the memory card.
i phone does gives a point about there ui and touch screen but this phone gives the true quality in mobile music expirience not even the i phone offers this much of quality in there product music wise .
I just brought this phone yesterday. Surely can say this is the ultimate iphone killer! Nokia is the best they took their time and finally unleashed the king of all phones. I love you Nokia you are the best, this phone has the best of all phones. Best pleasedwith the battery life. Keep it up.
Hamza, 13 Jun 2009can anybody tell me is nokia 5800 better or nokia n79?Obviously N79. 5800 only has a better screen, nothing else. Just look at n79, 5mpx camera, FM transmitter (awesome feature, trust me), NGage gaming, VoIP, Internet radio, XPress-on accelerator. 5800 is nowhere near N79. 5800 is just midrange, n79 is a high-end device!

A bit of a correction there mate. You can create folders in the gallery. And the reason the iphone interface is slightly more responsive than the 5800 interface is that it has a "heat sensitive" touch screen while the 5800 is equipped with a "pressure sensitive" touch screen... so you will get good results from the 5800 interface once you get the hang of it. :)

I also had 5700 previously and now i have 5800.
Regarding kinetic scrolling- it is not supported in current firmware v30 but is rumoured to be supported in v30.
Regarding touch screen- it is quite responsive though a resistive one. It is not as sensitive as of iphone though.
Regarding shortcut- i didn't get what you mean. You can create new folder in menu but not in gallery. You can transfer icons of apps which you install to menu.
Hope that cleared all your doubts. We are here to help you.

I cant make any comment about the black and the silver versions as I have not seen them close enough. May be those versions have a different print.
hi guys - im a previous owner of the nokia 5700 xpress music and i loved it - im looking forward to buy the 5800 too . but have a few questions though i hope u guys can help me with those .
will it support kinetic scrolling in the new firmware ? are u sure about this ?
is the touch screen well responsive ?
can u make custom shortcuts on the main menu or folders etc ?
thankyou in advance . please help me with these questions .
I want buy this phone. I have opened the nokia website and look its color. Mostly at the back. If I choose the red one, the back cover should be red too right? Because at Malaysia, I found the phone but its back cover is different somehow. The back cover seemed to be designed with a zoomed in fingerprint. Why? Can I find a normal one because the back cover is ugly to my eyes.
