Got this phone a month ago and I am very satisfied. I can also access my business emails with ease. What I like with this phone is the big display screen and fast access to internet and wifi. If I'm bored I listen to music and the sound quality is great. Tried snapping some pictures and it works fine on well lighted rooms though it lags on night shots you just have to play around with the flash and try to set image quality to Print 2M (medium) to get better images.I give this phone 2 thumbs up.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970I have both phones. The 5800 has a bigger screen with higher resolution, superb sound quality, better camera performance and speed. At first I found the E71 much user friendly but after getting used to the 5800 I most of the time prefer using the 5800.
Well if you're in Australia you'll get good deals from Three and Virgin mobile rather from optus or any other network.

thank you all
Here I wanna share with you some experiences which I got with 5800 so that it might help you who are planning to buy it. I have bought it 2 months ago and from the very begining its making me satisfied by following ways..
>> At the very first day it's auto rotation function was not working and I went back to Nokia outlet to replace it but they denied to replace and requested to go Nokia Service centre. I went there and left my Great 5800!!!! at service centre for repairing. It took 3 days and after repairing problem was solved. What a welcome it was from 5800!!!!!
>> After 10-15 days from my purchase, music player was not functioning and I have been using "5800 Express Music" without music since that time!!!!!
>> One month ago, I went again to service centre to repair because it was hanging in every 5/6 minutes.
I got it repaired after 7 days.
>> The last gift from 5800 was more great than the previous. It became totally dead and it couldnt be swithed on by all possible ways. Now my great 5800 is being at service centre and I returned to use my old hand set permanently.
Thanks a lot for westing your time by reading it.
Wish you all the best.

buy and apply a screen protection plastic for the screen and it will last for a long time.
Well i had almost 8 Nokia 5800s and i never experienced any serious probs. Well in the early firmware versions the sound quality is slightly less than the new ones. I'm disappointed about one thing though, recently introduced Nokia 5130 XM has a better sound quality than this phone and i wonder why Nokia did something like that to a phone like this. I hope they will soon release a new firmware which will improve the sound quality of that splendid phone...
It's really a good product..

thankx guyz....am about to buy this nokia 5800 8gb music edition....i`ve get encorged by your opinions & reviews about the handset....i`ii let you know when i grab it on ma-hand.....from tanzania, united republic of
..."The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic features quad-band GSM, which makes it usable everywhere in the world. The situation with the 3G support is a bit different. There are a European and an American version, and for some regions, even a 3G-less version is expected. If you prefer the last one, keep in mind that it is the only one that doesn’t have a built-in Wi-Fi. In order to establish a local connection, you can use the cable from the package, or connect wirelessly via Bluetooth 2.0, which supports stereo, unlike the iPhone..." what does it means???
kevin, 05 Jul 2009they should manek a firmware update, where they fix the rotaton thing.. the phone only rotates... moreHey kevin, i have a question.......did you use the 3g on Panama??? and, can you used the wi-fi conection with the phone?? Is because i was reading at phone arena that some versions comes without wi-fi conection, so i was wondering how does it works...
they should manek a firmware update, where they fix the rotaton thing.. the phone only rotates the skin when moved to the left, it would be better if it could be rotated to all directions
