CNET
23 February 2010
  • Summary: As one of the more affordably priced handsets from the company, the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition is a good value, offering road warriors a midlevel device with decent navigation skills and the freedom of an unlocked phone.
  • Pros: The Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition offers voice-guided navigation with text-to-speech functionality, 3D landmarks, and premium content, all for free.

  • Cons: Route recalculations are slow and positioning was frequently off by at least half a block. User interface is a bit confusing at first.

  • Excerpt: We at Tech2 have been covering the 5800, Tube, Bat-Man phone, i-Killer or whatever else you’d like to call it, for a long time now – ever since the rumors and fuzzy images surfaced. If you haven’t, well you’re either indifferent enough to have avoided the hype altogether or well informed and patient enough to have waited this long for its arrival. But does it live up to all that it was expected to do? Allow yours truly to lend you some insight into that.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

  • Conclusion: Nokia's first touch screen S60 smartphone is a success overall. It's easy to use, fun and has a compelling set of features. Not to mention it has excellent call quality and reception. Nokia could add some polish and abolish those scroll bars, but these small complaints don't stand in the way of using the phone nor do they annoy us unduly. If you're a Nokia fan and want to join the touch screen crowd, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is a great way to start.
  • Pros: First touch screen S60 Nokia smartphone. Very high resolution display.
  • Cons: Little UI niggles.

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Review

Phone Arena
15 January 2009
  • Conclusion: If we have to compare the 5800 with the other S60 phones, it should be placed somewhere in the middle. It’s clumsy and doesn’t offer anything more, in spite of the large touch screen. It has almost the same functionality, a bit poorer actually, because of the partial compatibility with the applications, made for the previous version of the OS. We may only hope that these issues will be fixed with the future software updates.
  • Pros: Good balance between weight and dimensions, 3.2-inch widescreen display with high resolution, The sound from the loudspeakers, headphones and during a call is really high-quality, A good browser and flawlessly working GPS, An affordable price, Long battery life
  • Cons: It feels cheap and fragile, The display is almost unusable when exposed to direct sunlight, Suffers from software and performance issues, The accelerometer is too sensitive

Can Nokia's 5800 XpressMusic -- its first touch screen mobile phone -- shape up as an iPhone 3G killer?

Good Gear Guide.au
1 January 2010
  • Summary: Nokia's first touch-screen mobile phone, the 5800 XpressMusic is not an iPhone killer but it’s provides a solid building block as Nokia moves into this space. This smartphone packs in plenty of features, but it falls short in terms of usability due to the resistive touch screen and an unorthodox text input method.
  • Pros: Responsive software, intuitive user interface, HSDPA-capable, Wi-Fi and GPS, included 8GB microSD card, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Cons: Touch input is not consistent, resistive touch screen requires a firm press, text messaging takes some time to grasp, display is poor in sunlit environments
