We get lots of requests to compare in detail Nokia 5800 with Apple Iphone 3G.
Here are some reasons we believe Nokia 5800 is way ahead than Iphone-
The iphone is bigger in size and uneasy for one hand grip.
Nokia 5800 is designed to fit well into your hands. Being smaller in width, its easy to operate single handedly.
Iphone size: 115.5 X 62.1 X 12.3 mm
Nokia 5800 size: 111 X 51.7 X 15.5 mm

3) Screen Resolution
The Iphone has 3.5” screen while Nokia 5800 has 3.2” but the resolution of 5800 is far more superior to Iphone.

Nokia 5800: 640 by 360
Iphone comes with two options- 8GB & 16GB internal memory.
Nokia has a more flexible option to offer 8GB with micro SD card which is expandable upto 16GB.
Nokia owners can expand memory size according to needs which the Iphone guys can’t do.
5) Input Methods
Iphone: Finger only.
Nokia 5800: Finger, stylus, plectrum, handwriting recognition.
Apple Iphone has lots of missing features like cut and paste function, saving email attachments, no support for third party headphones, ringtones, applications, many software bugs and other technical glitches.
Nokia 5800 Tube has no such issues plus many more amazing features included.
Iphone: Black for 8 & 16 GB, White for 16 GB only.
Nokia 5800: Red, Blue and Black.
8 ) Battery
Nokia 5800 provides upto 35 hrs of music playing time against Apple Iphone which claims just 24 hrs.
Overall battery power (talktime/standby) is also about 30% more in Nokia 5800.
What more, 5800 has a removable battery which Iphone lacks.

Nokia 5800: Bluetooth available for handsfree and file sharing is possible.
Better audio quality on bluetooth in 5800 with A2DP technology which Iphone lacks.
Iphone: It does not support message forwarding, multiple SMS deletion, sending SMS to multiple recipients and multimedia messages (MMS).
Nokia 5800: All the above is possible plus it has MMS ver 1.3, message size upto 600kb, and automatic resizing of Images for MMS.
Nokia 5800 is hopefully unlocked (without any contract) and will sell much cheaper .
Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic is expected to sell around the world for about $400 or below.
Nokia: Ages of experience, hundreds of success stories and dozens of smart handsets in current portfolio. Nokia has about 40% market share with the No.1 spot with no close competitors. Certainly the king when it comes to brand value, service and experience.
Apple: First phone ever launched by Apple is Iphone, no prior experience in the telecom market. It’s a novice in the market with a very less market share despite having millions of Iphone sold.
Almost all the major brands around the world like Samsung, HTC, LG, etc launched their touchscreen smartphones with a hope to beat Apple’s Iphone. No-one came close to Iphone when it comes to looks, style, feel and features.
This is the first time a tech giant like Nokia has hit it hard with its first true touchscreen smartphone. Nokia 5800 is a real Iphone killer with way ahead features, perfect looks and great price. Bravo Nokia, Well Done!!
Look out optus! Me and Lukey have insurance "claims" coming at ya to get this phone when it is out! This is the most awesome phone ever! Cant wait! Does anyone know if the wifi is "N" compatible though?
Anonymous, 08 Dec 2008if you americans didnt know china bailed you out with trillions of dollard. carrying thinking ... more3G a decade ago???
The 5110 wasn't 3G that's what was around a decade ago.
I think the 3210 was still coming and most phone's were mono-band.
There was no bluetooth Ericsson was still working on it, Sharp hadn't even released the first camera phone.
14.4k WAP was new and SMS was pretty new too, support between networks wasn't very good back then.
sunnysran, 07 Dec 2008looks like an experia killer to me... looks way better than xperia!yep ... looks like an experia killer but for me, windows mobile is way much better than symbian
no holds bard, im buying ds phon wen it cums out!! even f it cost a milion dolar c",
if you americans didnt know china bailed you out with trillions of dollard. carrying thinking america is no1 and you country will go down the drain hole. Its european and asia who spends money on the latedt inlocked phones not those cheapo americans. they buy garbage free phones provided by there carriers. america is about 5 years behind in mobile tech. Dif you know many parts dont have 3g. and 3g is fairly new to them. most parts of the world deployed 3g a decade ago. sorry for any typos from my phone
unkown, 07 Dec 2008microbliss-.. if u use a phone juz onli the camera. then y u dun buy a digital camera. a ne... moreunknown buddy,nowadays mobile phone should come with superb specs not only camera.if we want a phone.we shall want a camera with a superb megapixels.may you answer me,if you buy a camera,would you ever think to make a phone call from a camera?do we have to buy a digital slr camera for every snapshots?are we a professional photographer?if that was the case for every snapshots,its better for nokia to release n97 with a specs the same as the primitive nokia 3310(just for purpose of talking n messaging)..the fact is nokia is still stand at 5mp camera!! sony n samsung n lg are going forward with 8mp..actually, im a nokia user(n82)..when youre living in the technology of 8mp mobile phone camera,you shall demand for eighttt!! not fiveee!!
have not tried a touch phone from nokia--at least they tried to do some units now--but i think touchflo from WINMO is much better.
Default ringtone, 08 Dec 2008
Why all Symbian OS cant change default ringtone for unknown caller or unknown sender, whil... moreYes it can very well, you have to add in contact list the name "unknown caller" and no phone number or just put a "0" or "unknown caller id" then assign the ringing tone for it!
That's easy to fix the symbians, how about this WinMo secret apps is running in the background and connecting time after time on internet, are they spyware or wot, specially when you week up in morning and all your prepaid call voucher is goon!
Does iphone connects to internet itself to?
Wheel symbians does not this things, only if you install junk explicit java apps your self and if you let running in the background!
I wonder why lately the phone companies first release their phones with HSDPA for Europe and Asia and months later for North America- good example is N97(Doesn't have northamerican specs even). Does somebody know why the most affluent consumers are neglected. I would never buy a phone once is already old as a model even though is new for the american market.
Why all Symbian OS cant change default ringtone for unknown caller or unknown sender, while Windows Mobile can?!
I love when SE fans comes here and write bad comments about a phone they would dream of...JEALOUS SE fans gay boy, vote the N97 down and write negative comments, i don't care, cause i know this phone kill the X1, the 5800 kill the X1, almost every phone on this planet is better than your crappy X1!
Hahaha, SE fan are the worst of all! Me myself and I!
Voting results would be, without SE fan boy:
Why so serious??? After all if u gonna get this phone u have to pay for it... n ur paying for that company.. after all this arguements and promoting the n97 u stil have to pay for the phone if u want them lol.. its funny how u guys arguing bout this
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2008MASSIVE FAIL.
Having the D-Pad on the left side of the QWERTY???
What were you thinking,... moreThey put the d pad on the left for a logical reason!!!
when you use two hands the left hand can operate the d-pad while the right hand can use the touch screen because most of the options come on the right side of the screen!
also for gaming this is a true masterpiece due to the fact that all 'successful' gaming devices have the d pad on the left hand side i.e. Sony PSP, Nintendo DS,
so think FIRST before you make an 'stupid' comment!!
whoops forget my name ☺
