what i can say about the 5800 is based on my hands-on experience first overall the phone is not that good but its still acceptable, it sure has many bugs but remember the iphone 3g when it first came out it also has alot of bugs and the UI is not that fast and accurate back then , the camera of 5800 is similar to the 6120 which i also own , yes its not of good quality but still acceptable especially photos during the day , but at night both phones just produce greenish pictures but videos are ok in the 5800 plus the flash can also be used in video mode.
The phone is a good deal its not expensive , it cost 15,500 pesos here in the philippines but for those who want to buy this phone i would suggest you wait for a few months lets just say wait for september maybe nokia will annouce new phones by then like the rumored nokia 5530 xpressmusic and the nokia 5900 if that is true if not then go for nokia 5800 but still wait for a few months cause right now the firmware is still not stable , wait for a better firmware update , nokia should first fix that bugs that causes the phone to crash and turnoff cause that really is irritating other bugs is acceptable for me as long as it doest restarts the phone or hangs it , cause right now my problem is when my phone hangs i need to remove the battery and put it back again to restart/turn it on again and i hate that so please nokia fix first the bugs that causes the phone to hang or turnoff by itself.
If this phone would have had a stable and less bug firmware many would want to buy this with out any doubts on their minds.
For potential buyers , again i suggest wait for a stable firmware update before you buy it !
