Summary: "Good: Takes good pictures in daylight. Runs Java and S60 apps so there\'s literally millions. Built in aGPS works well on recent software updates. Free sat-nav for life with Nokia maps. Good music player and other music features like music store & podcasting. Familiar Nokia UI. Wi-Fi and 3.5G. Good call quality and reasonably loud speakerhone. Bad: Resistive screen isn\'t the most responsive and don\'t even consider comparing the visual quality to an iPhone.
Excerpt: Overall a good handset, if the Nokia should have given more updates for it.now it seems like a tcnology of stoneage,there good alternatives preswnt in the market.............................................................................................................
Excerpt: There are some issues that I have with the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, but they are easily overlooked. For instance, the protruding edges that border the screen are sometimes a hassle when composing text messages. Also, the camera flash sometimes leaves a shadow on the picture. Whether it is due to the placement of the flash or something else, I am not sure. All in all, it is a very good phone. The picture is sharp, the sound is phenomenal, and the applications a re endless!
Excerpt: Another thing which bothered me was that the phone didnt always give you the possibility to decide where to save downloaded apps from the OVI store, most of which ended up in phone memory rather than memory card, and since phone updates can only be saved (temporarily just for the time it takes to do the update) on the phone sometimes you would have to erase quite a bit before doing an update.
Excerpt: Other things that I experienced with my Nokia 5800 includes the following:I was able to install lots of applications that are available for Symbian phones. The very best application I installed on my 5800 is an Office suite where I can edit and view Office files such as texts, documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. It connects fast on wireless LAN and it browses pages faster than our Pentium 4 computer.
Excerpt: I purchased Nokia 5800 Navigation edition few months ago and I'm using it everyday. Phone is somewhat slow, but if you are not a heavy phone user, this is a nice phone. The user interface is not much user friendly, but once you are used to it, it is not much of a problem. I use it heavily for music and wi-fi. Music playback is very good for a phone. In built speakers are not so loud, but decent. The included headphones are nice, but does not give greatest quality.
Excerpt: After using iPhone 2G for an year, I bought Unlocked Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition Phone in Amazon.com. It has very powerful GPS and comes with lifetime voice guided navigation for many countries North America, UK and rest can be downloaded for free. It also comes with a dash or windshield mount car kit to use in car. This phone uses Nokia OVI Maps and can be used without any data plan.
Excerpt: Nokia 5800 is Nokia's first attempts to break into the touchscreen smartphone market with the Symbian S60 operating system. They positioned it as a music companion, sporting a widescreen display, quality built-in speakers, and a standard sized 3.5mm headphone/video-out jack. Coupled with an included 8GB microSD memory card, I can safely say that the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic makes good consolidation of a phone and an iPod Nano in terms of capacity and function.
Excerpt: Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic cell phone is a good smart phone at its price range. I bought mine around 200 bucks. Amazon, dell and lots of other stores are selling them unlocked, that means you can use it along with any GSM service provider, no matter it is AT&T or T-mobile, even oversea ones. The voice quality of this phone is good, as nokia phones always are. It can pick up the signals very well. Nokia is providing free GPS navigation software and free map update (lifetime).
