Im using this Phone since a month iv had absolutely no problems its an awsome phone has all the features ud need
I can add another con - lack of SIP Voip frontend,so no internet calls.This is an essential feature for me,that's the only reason I won't buy this phone.On the other hand - N80 didn't have this feature initially as well,but eventually it was added later with the firmware update.Let's hope Nokia will be as smart with this phone too.
Also too bad no Irda anymore,can't make use of Psiloc Irremote application,which had good use in N80.
If u upgrade your phone to firmware V11,it'll work just fine.All the UI transitions are very smooth just like iphone.I bet gsmarena review on V10 firmware unit.About the shortcuts,i think gsmarena haven't really go deep into the functionality of the phone.I've used all touchscreen phones before & my advise is that this phone worth buying minus the horrible camera unit.
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2009you can buy this sim free from Carphone for £299.99You can buy this from Nokia store next week for £249...thats cheaper than carphone
Guys , this is one of the best phone till date. The home screen has lots of shortcuts. As stated in the review that there is no options like previous S60 version like WLAN scanning etc. guys these are still available, just touch near the battery icon, you have all the shortcuts there.
Switch on theme effects which are turned off by default and you will see amazing transition effects.
We have lots of applications and games coming up for S60v5 .. So guys I will recommend this as a best buy till date. And also the best value for money in the market.
I just read this review again and it's such a kick in the nuts. Really wanted to get this phone but sounds like nokia have been super lazy on the UI. Review follows with what my friend said too. Any suggestions for a upgrade from the n82? And don't say the iphone.
can this phone run widgets like in n97?
if yes then from where to get and how to install?
i am planning to buy this phone.. i think this is a good move from nokia's side. i read the review by gsm arena it was a good one but the comparison u people made with nokia 5800 and iphone is not fare..
because only touchscreen facility is best in iphone and the price between these 2 fones r really different.... i feel nokia 5800mx more worthy than the iphone
VOLAND, 16 Jan 2009what the hell?
HTC touch in whole shit . i had it for 0ne week,
LG KU990 is the old phone, j... moreVoland, your argument doesn't make sense.
Nothing wrong with a year-old phone. Especially when it is cheaper, and better featured than this 5800.
For 380$ you can buy alot of great 1-year-old phones, that has much much better features.
I just dont see the hype of spending $380 on a first-attempt phone, that even gsmarena admits is flawed. If you want to try it out, at least let the prices drop a bit. Following hype and paying top dollars for technology isn't too wise.
Nokia 5800 XpressMusic; what a superb phone from Nokia!
my sister bought it 2 weeks ago..i really like this phone..
now, i want to buy this phone..but i need to wait my gf back to my country...we want to buy together..hopefully get the best low price :)
really best phone..i can't wait to have it!!
I've had the Nokia 5800 since Christmas now and I love it. When comparing to the iPhone, i have an iPod touch and music & video wise it replaces it but apps and gameswise apple still wins. but otherwise it is an amazing phone!
Fourt quarter results from SE reveal they are going into the red (,") HAHAHAH
