- Nokia 5800 best phone ever!!!
I recently bought this phone and I have to say that It is the First XpressMusic I buy 'cause I've always been a N Serious fan. But, I'm totally amazed with this phone. It has the best features and is not that big as the iPhone. I totally recommend this phone. Nokia's the best!...more info
- Very cool
It is definitely a cool gagdet. I took one star away because call quality is not great. Maybe it's my phone in particular, but sometimes voice fades in and out, especially when the signal is not at its highest.
Web browsing is pretty simple, as is switching windows. The full size Qwerty keyboard is great for IM.
Although not many applications have been made for the phone, it has everything you need, and it comes with a sturdy case that fits snuggly and protects. Great picture quality (the flash is a plus), the contact shortcuts on the homepage makes it easy to get in touch with people, and speakers are very loud...more info
- Simply the Best!!!
This phone has the best overall specs I've seen on the market so far. Even most of the unreleased models fall short. This means Nokia 5800 is ahead of its time.
Pros: superb resolution, speedy performance, intuitive design, excellent music player, solid call reception, battery life, application plentiful, price tag and much more!
Cons: none!...more info
- Unbeatable Price, Most Complete Features
I just got a hold of this 5800 Xpress Music. This is an amazing new device which shows why Nokia dominates the mobile phone market with a big choice of innovative designs and experiences suitable for each individual user.
The price is unbeatable. You'll keep hearing this line about the price, and when you get a hold of it, you'll agree.
This is the phone with the most complete set of features I have ever wanted.
The device is light, feels ready for some hard knocks, it is a little bulky (compared to my trusted E51:).
Update to the latest firmware 11.0.008, and you'll feel much better about the usability of this device
It's not quite "touch" sensitive, but "press" sensitive. This proves to be an advantage, since I'm more in control when I use the device on a bus, train, boat or tuk-tuk (a 3 wheel vehicle, with 2 stroke engine, sort of a "Thai Model-T" seen all over Bangkok).
The switch between portrait and landscape mode, is actually much simpler and quite natural once I got the hold of it.
I set up access to my GMAIL account within 2 mins.
Messaging App, Options->Settings->Email, say "Yes" to Define Mailbox, Enter Email Address, Password, choose POP3 or IMAP4, and I'm connected to my GMail Account!
You can choose the best way you see fit to enter text
1. Handwriting recognition
Took 5 minutes to get used to it. I don't quite like writing in block letters, but the 5800 handled fast writing quite ok. I'm overly critical of all current handwriting recognition products, since they don't even come close to the Newton, way back when I could expect my own handwriting to be recognized.
2. Small QWERTY keyboard
Most typically used in portrait mode but much more readable than WinMobile keyboards
3. Full QWERTY keyboard
It felt more stable than the iPhone QWERTY keyboard. I prefer to "press" the keyboard as is needed with the 5800 XpressMusic. I don't like the iPhone QWERTY key since it's too sensitive to touch and I can't type when I'm on the move. I've never been able to get used to the Blackberry or E71 style full QWERTY keyboard.
The 5800 XpressMusic full QWERTY keyboard switches to landscape mode and feels almost right that I have to use 2 thumbs to reach all the keys...almost like 2 hand typing.
4. Alphanumeric Keypad for traditional one-thumb typing with T9.
There's a really cool driving game that shows the 5800 XpressMusic sensitivity to turns. You literally hold the phone with both hands and "steer" the car!
The media player (from RealPlayer) is much improved, allowing me to play more types of VDO format files. Quite useful to get the nice video podcasts downloaded and find that they are actually viewable on the device.
The Music Player is the same. Sound quality is really good through the speakers.
The Media Gallery is a little static, with all files arranged as a grid. The N95 Media Gallery would be a nice touch.
You will soon see many useful applications on Nokia's range of "touch" handsets.
This device requires developers to publish a Symbian sdk5 version of their application.
We tested a few apps released for Symbian sdk3 devices (N-Series and E-Series mainly), and they almost always worked without any changes....more info
im very happy with the product and from now on amazon is my choice over ebay...more info
- Awesome touchscreen phone
This phone is awesome, and everything works out of the box. I used its GPS Navigation to travel from store to my home :). It is all plastic, so light in weight and provides a good grip in hand. Nokia improved symbian60 platform a lot. it is much faster than older s60 phones.
- Excellent phone...!!!
The Nokia 5800 is a further evolution of Nokia products worldwide. I had waited long for the touch screen from Nokia and finally arrived.
- good for movies
nokia xpress music is great for music and movies. Touch screen is ok . If you are a internet user than dont buy nokia xpress. When u are using internet Touch screen is very troublesome. I find iphone and google g1 very user friendly. Battery life is awesome. Overall its good. If you are not heavy internet user then i would recomend it....more info
- Excelent Phone
Anyone looking for a good smart, light and small phone should seriously consider the 5800 XM. The display is huge and the screen resolution is perfect.
Also, new software for the Symbian S60 V5 is popping everywhere now.
Great phone!...more info
- Got it from USA Nokia Flagship stores
Don't get this review wrong, the phone's feature/functionality are simply GREAT.. but thats if you get the properly working one..
so far this is my 2nd Nokia Tube(returned previous one since it was defected), and im still getting some issues with it..
1) screens goes to different colors(similar to when you used to have the old phones, u know how you press the screen the whole screen goes green/purple?)
2)phone restarts/frozen when clicking too fast from applications to the next.
3)when typing text msg-screens goes total white(happened to the previous one that i return also)
4)during calls.. voice of the other person goes loud and soft back and forth(real annoying)
Despite those big CONS...this phone did came with tons of nice accessories along with the box. Features of the phone are REAL NICE... thats if the phone is working properly.. but until they really fix all those bugs and etc... i would hold off until they release the 2nd generation of it.
but don't get me wrong.. "Get it!!" .. just good luck on receiving the properly working one......more info
- Question, I want to buy it. However, I don't know how to contact you, so I write on the review, sorry!
What is the international version mean? Is there Chinese input method for international version? Does N96 also have International Version? Thanks!...more info
- I'm amazed
For the price, this is an amazing phone. Connecting it to the home wifi took less than a minute. The browser is fast and the best I have experienced on a mobile phone so far. You can switch from landscape to portrait mode or vice versa by moving the phone sideways, which is useful for getting a better overview on different websites. It's possible to watch YouTube videos - including YouTube videos embedded on other sites like EduTube. The screen is quite big and surprisingly high quality (640 by 360), so watching YouTube videos on the phone isn't much different from watching them on a monitor. The interface is nice and intuitive with big clear buttons. I like the fact that you have different options for typing (handwriting, mini qwerty, full qwerty, alphanumeric), although those with big fingers may need to use the stylus even in full qwerty mode. Few people mention the phone supports not only Java but also Flash lite, which means not just video but also a lot more applications and games which are supported.
As has been mentioned the touchscreen is not as good as the iPhone, but that is not a critical factor for me. With respect to the price (much cheaper) and features (e.g. better camera, handwriting recognition, YouTube videos, many additional features supported by the Symbian O.S.) I think this one is a much better deal....more info
