i hope some people will buy this phone to encourage and help nokia
Misha, 15 Jan 2009Hello Amit....
I read ur reviews.....n now m confused whether i shud go for this 5800 xpress ... morewell if camera is your priority, i would suggest don't for 5800, but the music quality in 5800 is the best till date, really.
So, I would suggest you n85, as it is a decent 5mp cam and music is also gr8 here, with all the latest nseries features,vitually unlimited app support, fm transmitter etc..
bummy, 16 Jan 2009300 euro is cheap?
Wouldn't you be better off with:
280 euro LG Viewty with 5mp Camera 120fp... morewhat the hell?
HTC touch in whole shit . i had it for 0ne week,
LG KU990 is the old phone, just got camera? u need camera? ok go for the digital camera for 200 euro.
Iphone is just for fashion, nothing got . that is cool to surf internet. can not still support java .
the other guys does not have any platform, here u can get 5800 for 380$
no problem at all after upgrading the firmware and dont forget this is not the high end N series and is the first experience for nokia.
300 euro is cheap?
Wouldn't you be better off with:
280 euro LG Viewty with 5mp Camera 120fps video?
270 euro LG Secret 5mp and 11.8mm thin?
260 euro iPhone 1gen with fluid touch interface?
260 euro Samsung Tacco 5mp?
220 euro HTC touch?
300 euros for a faulty interface is hardly a bargain.

When Nokia fans start whining, you know GSM Arena got it right.
A well balanced and objective review.
I thought that GSM Arena was on Nokia's side, but I see they very objective, is a very true review, I was waiting this phone since was announce it, and now I don't know if I really want to buy it, for me always was an issue why not 5mpx camera? but well at least is a 3.2 Carl Zeiss but is to bad camera, and the UI is bad too, you can see is a new UI, but apple is a new UI too, and see the success they have. Thank GSM ARena, now I know I shouldn't buy this phone.I want a very fast at least 5mpx camera and touchscreen, what do u recommend??
Good Review. Like All 1st gen phones, it has issues.
If you are interested in buying, wait at least till firmware 20.0 comes out. By the time, the cost will be reduced as well as most of issues resolved.
The 5800 is selling for £300 plus on eBay...
...consumers need to wait a few more days and buy the phone direct from Nokia for about £250. Or get it free on a tariff of £25 - £35.
I think gsmarena got it spot on. My friend got this and he said it was a really overrated phone. The touchscreen(the main selling point) is poor, the browser is rubbish, camera not very usable, nokia maps pointless as it doesn't come with free voice nav. and the lack of 3rd party apps is frustrating. My nokia n82 is so much better than this phone, and until then i'd stick with the nokia non-touchscreen s60 devices.
