Earpiece problems, 3g reception problems, LCD problems..... just indictative of poor quality assurance. This phone could be a winnner, but Nokia needs to get it right BEFORE release.
For the LCD problem,Pls refer to the link below:
I'm using the phone now.honestly,this phone got a lot of hardware problem.What i'm faced is LCD problem and volume problem.Pls think twice b4 u purchase.

What a great difference in low light video recording.There is a 3rd option for low light video and all I can say is that the vertical lines and artifacts are now reduced by 50-60%!Great job NOKIA!Also the pictures quality is slightly better.overall a great phone!
hey!!..guy i am planning to buy this phone..howeva...i wanted to know how much would it cost to buy it from
Hi i just seen this phone at catalogue it coming for contract in aust and i was impressed how this phone looks great and not only that, i will get one in future it touch screen from nokia and im fan of nokia for many years i had plenty nokias from budget ones like 6020,6070 and n series now i have n95 and samsung f480, plus had omnia touchscreens but i like this one the best how is this phone to use is it hard like omnia?i would like to know how is touch screen some people say it is easy to use great some dont like but i want to get one so please let me know, is it worth to get it?thanks in advance
i got the mobile about 1 month ago and its Really good, better than what i expected
its not just good looking, its really practical and easy to handle, the speakers are great and the camera is pretty good, although its only 3.2 MP but the pictures im taking are turning out great, with flash or without
Plus the price is really good compared to other Nokia mobiles
how about the quality of camera compare to N73? it's similar or worse? otherwise it's stil carl zeiss and 3,2MPix
I love my 5800! its awesome! the UI is easy to use and all the probs about clicking and double clicking and scrolling, you get used to it within a day. Its really no big deal. The speakers are insane and now more and more apps are being released so thats good. The only prob is the camera. It sucks, the iphone 2mp one is far better. However, if pictures and videoing arent that important for you, this phone owns! ;)
hey...the people with the negative comments about this phone..where did you buy your 5800? My 5800 doesn't lag or restart...I even browse the internet while listening to music..and its has no problem. For the people who want to have this phone...I recommend it. I had it for 1month now...and there's no problem at all..Well, the picture quality is best for outdoors but not in low light places. The video is good...30fps of video recording. So far so good..Just waiting for more 3rd party application to come out.
Should I get the LG Prada II or this nokia 5800?? What are the pros and cons?
You people don't understand all the so called 'MAIN DISADVANTAGES' have been fixed in the latest firmware apart from micro-usb charging!!(the battery life is very good anyways)
I don't care what others may say about it.
I think its really COOL!
Just wait until i get it! Doesn't matter if it has certain disabilities as long as its made mainly for music. I mean this is "WOW". We live in an imperfect world. All we have to do is accept what's is there.. So what if iPhone's better? The question is... Do you have money to pay for it? Its simple... The 5800's more affordable. I wanna support NOKIA! Im definitely gonna get this for my graduation present!!! Simply can't wait to have of these! I have requests though.. I hope you'll also make cases and silicon for screen protection and to avoid scratches like your previous phones. I mean that's not a 'so hard' request right? Goodluck nokia! Stay strong=)
jackinabox, 17 Feb 2009I purchased the 5800 a few days ago 4.5years after buying the 6230. At the same time i bought ... moreperfect post my friend that exactly what i think :D but dont worry with in few months there will be some fun applications :)
I want to share experience of using Nokia Map. I hope it helps, someway. Aniway..
I use E51, have downloaded Nokia Map 3.0 (beta?) it's the latest available on "Download" and use it with bliss. My experience is, that after download complete (I think it's the application) then you would have to download the map. What happened to me was that since I'm on office free wifi, I've downloaded most of my map needs using that, by strolling to one area to another so that the connection can download the map for that area.
After all area I wanted was completely downloaded (you can see it in the map screen), then if you use it outside any connectivity (by setting connection to off) you can still use the map as per latest you've downloaded, for FREE.
I don't have GPS, but we can still use the map offline to route to some place by:
1. Add to route a place (click or your own choice)
2. Add stopover - then choose from library or from the map
3. Show route
The phone will then calculate.
Then you see the route in your map, completely offline. I hope my explaination helps. Cheers.
I purchased the 5800 a few days ago 4.5years after buying the 6230. At the same time i bought it 3 people in the store bought the iphone.
At first I was a bit disappointed from the UI since it feels like its a UI that was designed for a regular phone and than clumsily adapted to a touchphone without too much thought.
After a few days of use I changed my mind. I needed to use the video and camera at my work and even thou the quality is not great it was still very usable.
The radio works fine. The sound quality of the speakers is astounding.
The phone is light small and easily disappears in my pocket. and feels very comfortable in my hand.the screen quality is great. since it has a great voice recognition I can activate every function and call anyone without having to train the phone for every command or number and it has 100% success rate so far.
Wifi and bluetooth work fine.
When I used iphone i had problems typing since i usualy use the tip of my fingernails and it didn't feel well in my hands.
I paid for it 2/3 of the price of an iphone.
As a phone it's a much better phone than iphone, no competition.
It's main drawback is total lack of proper or fun applications. It's not that it's hardware cannot do most of what Iphone can do, it's just too new and there are not many touch applications available for it.
Gadget and game freaks should get the iphone.
People that want a great phone with touch abilities for great price should get the 5800.
I went to one of the NOKIA centers and they had me try a sample unit, and as far as im concerned it was great, if i decide that im gonna buy this phone then this will be the 1st touch phone that i will have, Experia's too expensive and so is the Omnia, im pretty satisfied when i tested in for about 20 mins, so im basing part of my decision on the comments that i read here. Hope the moneys worth it ... cuz right now im almost positive on getting me a 5800, NOKIA never failed me before all the phone that i bought from them were quality phones, hope this one sets my expectations as well.
Is Nokia Maps completely free and can it be used without an internet connection? Can I download maps of other countries for free? Also, does this software provide step by step directions? Thanks.
I Am Going To Get This Phone When My Contract Is Available For Update.
I Was Told In A Nokia Store That They Would Pay For The Remaining Months Of My Contract For Me To Switch From T-Mobile To Vodafone. I May Do This But Im Not Totally Sure On How To Approach It.
Should I Ring T-Mobile Up And Tell Them That I Am Thinking Of Terminating My Contract With Them Because Nokia Have Offered Me A Buy Out, To Move To Vodafone With One Of Their Nokia Mobiles. Or Tell Them What Nokia Have Offered Me And See If They Can Better That.
Can Somebody Help Me :)
Thank You very Much (Y)
tina, 08 Feb 2009Is 5800 the worst phone Nokia ever produced? After six Nokia handsets and a few others from ot... moreYou are the first person to truely talk sense and I thank you. I used this phone for the first time today and the reviews are correct, it is a laggy, uncohesive terrible interface that just doesn't work it really doesn't. The phone really has nothing to offer like every other Nokia. It is time people started to wake up and realise Nokia really are nothing anymore and when sales drop, Nokia may respond by making a decent phone... As for everyone else, the iPhone stands alone simply because it's interface is second to none. If hardware was updated then no one would have an issue with it. but until you own an iphone and use any other device to compare, you will never understand quite why it is the best phone and most revolutionary... Wait for the next iPhone, it's not always about megapixels and HD video... that's not revolutionary that's just putting better technology in that's already available...
