after al this hypes and everything surrounding it gsmarena comes up with a late and one of the most untrust ful review of all! if u hate nokia then admit it! i have used other touch screens of samsung and lg and if u say 5800 has dodgy interface then gsm is just damn biased!
Seeing this review make make put my decision to purchase 5800 on hold. I'm gonna continue using my 1+ years old E61i for a little longer. I think i'm gonna wait for N97 to rool out, and also for the S60v5 to get mature.
Thanks GSM arena for the great review.
Q: What is MPEG4? I thought the MPEG4 = DivX/XVid?
It's a sad that the good 5800 can't play DivX/Xvid. It's a waste
the problem is that "Symbian OS v9.4, Series 60 rel. 5" is very new. in 6 months, who knows, oh yeah... lot of apps \o/
thanks for the review, a little bit late, but no big deal.
can't wait for the review of N97.
btw, do you know when will Samsung release their own Symbian touchscreen device?
Sorry, this phone is not an iPhone killer. In fact it excels in only a few areas:
- you can use an Apple bluetooth keyboard with it, but not with the iPhone!
- the camera resolution is better than the iPhone (3MPx vs 2 MPx)
- you can multi-task
- you can copy and paste text!
S60 3rd edition (non-touchscreen version of the OS) is clunky and inconsistent, and it appears that S60 5th ed. is the same. I doubt that anyone will give up their iPhone for this product (and I'm an N82 owner).
Im not agree with this review, the sound its really impressive, the touchscreen is very very good and very responsive, i love this phone, and yes this is a great example of IPHONE KILLER

Wud really prefer d SE xperia to 5800 if it wasnt for d lack of accelerometer.....tht was such a minor peice of tech they missed out on 4 such a huge amount they r charging 4 d fon....
no complaints for a phone shipped in wid 8gb card undr 20grands....
thts massive amount of storage....thoh they cud hv wrked on including DivX vid recording....
there are phone without window mobile have higher resolution than 5800xm
that is japan phone , their resolution is much much higher (WVGA)
I just bought this phone about a week ago, exchanged it twice. A lot of people had the same issue i had which is the headset not sounding very clear or you just cant hear out of it at all.
