Excerpt: It's was the worst phone I've ever had. It has so cheep looks and It doesnt't have good functionality and the battery life was low. And it was very expensive when I bought it then. And also have a lot of crashes.
Pros: Touchscreen, GPS
Cons: Outdated OS, Cheep plastic body, Poor battery performance, No countdown timer, Very bad camera photos, Call Quality
Excerpt: The Nokia 5800 is not so great. Hangs especially when new message is received. Shows memory full, close some allpications even though no applications are open. Even Nokia repair centre colud not solve this software related issues. Was disappointed when they refused to replace defective piece even though in warranty period. Would not recommend to buy. HTC models are better.
Summary: After 2 years on this phone, well, it started to fall apart. the red around the edges fell off and the stylus stopped staying in, so i lost it. Quality wise, theres nothing amazing to show off. Its a bit of a brick, crashes regularly, restarts itself and is generally quite some way behind every other phone in the market.
Summary: I always get Nokia phones as in the past they have been durable, easy to use, easy to customise and very reliable. Sadly the 5800 just tries far too hard and fails miserably. By making even the simplest tasks over complicated (i.e. unecessary large amounts of button pushing, confirming your choice etc.) it just makes it really frustrating to use. The touch screen is atrocious, the number of times you will press the wrong letter for text messages is annoying.
Summary: Coming up to my 18 month anniversary with having this phone and I sure cannot wait to get rid of it. I've had endless problems, first of all was a year ago, of which they did fix on the 3rd try, where when ever it would go cold (or sometimes not even cold) the whole screen would go fuzzy making it impossible to see, so you have to reset it. But as I say this was fixed within a month.
Summary: The phone works fine and the sound is unusually good for a phone. The screen, however, is very different from the screen of an iPhone. That's because the iPhone screen works on electrical impulses from your fingertips and doesn't require pressure on the screen (it's like the touchpad of a laptop, but more sohpisticated). This phone's screen, however, is of the ancient kind that Does require pressure on the screen.
Very Good phone HOWEVER... full of bad software faults!

Summary: I owned my Nokia 5800 until only recently when in a fit of rage managed to break my phone. Why might you ask I did that? well firstly after many months of software updates from Vodafone that were going to fix the phone it continued to let me down. First it was niggly things such as changing ring tones in the profiles (kept saying cannot open not enough memory when that was the only thing that was on) menu then it began to get progressively worse where the phones screen...
