kimmy, 04 May 2011what you mean capacitive and ressesive touch?Capacitive touchscreem....it's very responsive,it can only be operated with your fingers(skin in general).....resistive....more difficult to operate with your fingers,but it has the advantage that it can be operated with a stylus,a pencil a nail or whatever...A capacitive touch is better...Haven't used 5800 so can't tell enything about it....N96 has a good quality of pictures and videos, large internal memory,pretty fast....The music quality is pretty good and loud....but keep in mind that 5800 is a dedicated music phone.....overall I think n96 is a good phone and if you can get it at a good price I think it's worth it!

to kimmy n96 is more preferable to 5800xm,in the sense that it comes with 16gb and can install 3rd party apps while 5800 is lacking in these areas
can you advice me what cellphone is good, is nokia n96 or nokia 5800xm? please response. thank you.
kimmy, 01 May 2011so n96 is not so loud? please can you compare nokia 96 and 5800xm? give me some advice, i want... moreboth the 5800XM and N96 has the same sound.
if u want to view these videos and pics, I would recommend the 5800(because of the large screen), but if you want to capture pictures and videos, i would recommend the N96(the 5mega camera is muchhhhhhh better than the 3.15 mega of the 5800).
and if you are looking for a phone with a touch screen go for the (Capacitive touch) and not for the (Resistive touch)
Hope i was of any help

When i bought this mobile 2 years ago it was perfect, it had almost every thing i needed. but now 2 years later, I can't wait to change it. it became very laggy and it doesn't compare to new smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy SII.
so here is my advice, IF you want to buy a phone that is good, reliable, and durable GET the N96 (I droped it at least fifty times in the street and once in the water and it still works fine.
BUT if you wanna buy the best phone now, I will recommend the Galaxy SII.
Don't hate my guys i'm only saying my opinion, I've always loved nokia, but now it's time to change it.
