The camera still is crap, the search still takes 3 mins to find photos/music etc & it still takes around 30 secs to delete a photo.
Like I've said AVOID, AVOID, AVOID, Wait for the Samsung Omnia HD, more expensive, but I believe it will be worth the extra cash.
for 5days now, i dont have problem wtih 5800... for long time i am a nokia user since the start of the cellphone GSM... you will enjoy nokia fone...
i bought this fone this month, after careful consideration between, samsung i900omni, i found this fone practical with respect to price and feature. but 1 problem regarding 1st time user of touch screen key board it will make you boring & missed your key pad fone. but in general it is a good fone. and software update it also needed for performance Enhancement.
Hi What about the build quality of the phone? I'm realize that my 5800 have a small whole on the right hand side near the Xpress music button!!! and dust can go inside!!!!
Did you guys found same problem as me??

What's out as it messes up the phone. If you go back to the prior version, you should be fine. Nokia is still busy with this firmware and it will only be released next month
This phone is the worst one I've ever owned, it's got the latest firmware V21, yet it keeps losing numbers, it freezes/locks up, it's slow to access the memory card, it doesn't close applications properly & if you use the camera be prepared for a long wait while it processes the image.
I would strongly recommend to anyone considering buying this phone DON'T, you'll really regret it.

I Have used tis phone about 4 months and I had experience as follows:
1. VeRY Bad n Poor Image Camera Quality
2. A little bit slow while do multitasking (With Proc 369 Mhz and 128 RAM,is it possible?? because There were no problem while using lower spec on SE-except for Symbian OS)
3.Details view on phonebook very limited (Can not scrolling down)
4.It suddenly change to Local Drive while accesss SD Card in Windows Explorer while connect to PC.
5.Can not play video automatic / can not make playlist for video
6.Can not change Shortcut and background in Express Music Shortcut
7.Not Comfort to sent 1 Person with multiple number
8.Nice Setting for checking email
9.Cool GPS,Connection and organizer
10.Clear sound,bright video play,and nice Themes frm 3rd party
Does anyone have similar experience as me on point 1 until 4??
Nice touch Screen Phone , BUT the Photo and video result indoor are really bad. and it seems the newest firmware still don't fix that, very disappointed.
