Anonymous, 15 Sep 2009Hi,I am planning to buy this phone, but i saw its camera with tw... moreCamera is not stable. Sometimes will reflect and capture great light and at times is just horrible. I have found that the best way to take a picture is to have the timer set and just activate it so that blur is at minimal.

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2009if u have updated it to v31, then it is extremely fast, no lags ... moreHaven't faced any crashes yet. The only thing i'm expecting from the phone is kinetic scrolling, because in the big lists, like phonebook or song list you can't stop on the place you want just draging the slidebar. Everything else is great!

if u have updated it to v31, then it is extremely fast, no lags or crashes and very reliable. i have this phone

  • KCostas

Hey, version 31 is out in some countries! I have updated already.

No kinetic scrolling though. The homescreen is the same. New nokia OVI maps (Incompatible with maps that already downloaded, so you will be prompted to delete them). Improved memory management (more Ram). Improved touch sensitivity. The hack survived the update.

Forgot to mention the W995 can also charge from USB, the 5800 can't.
But the 5800 can handle more apps :P

I own a SE W995 and Nokia 5800...although the W995 is non touch I'll post advantages of both:

5800 pros:
Screen size is giant, with awesome quality
Stereo speakers are pretty good in sound
Video player is good with fullscreen and great quality video
Homescreen isn't crowded with text, unlike on W995, and is much more customisable
Much nicer looking FM radio
Better GPS sensitivity than W995
Better network reception than W995, does not drop internet when switching between 3G/2G
Better video recording than W995
Nicer web browser which handles most pages fine

W995 pros:
Walkman player beats the Nokia one easily
Music keys on side make for easy control
Better Wifi implementation, good sensitivity
I prefer the Sony Ericsson status icons much more than the tiny Nokia ones, and they are much more informative
No annoying red light flash when taking photos, tiny red light when recording videos unlike 5800's distracting one
W995 Camera quality is millions of times better, no matter the resolution...5800's camera is BAD!
Stereo speakers are superior in sound
Battery life is a LOT better than 5800- I have to charge 5800 more than once a day often
Menu is easy and fast to find items, unlike 5800

I really don't know which one to use more :(

The nokia 5800 is a great phone. And Nokia is the top sellphones you get. It's opperating system is better then any other brand. But the decision is still yours.

  • Anonomous

The phone has a very poor camera, but it's still a awesome phone.

Hey Friends.. I have visited the Nokia store today & what I came to know that Nokia 5800XM is now just in 13K... ...not in 16K.

  • ex 5800 owner

there is only one way to fix this poor excuse of a phone. Smash it ,,and get a nother one.i did,and i havent looked back...nokias are behind the 8 ball compared to samsung,,lg,,even motorolla are making a phones at present are of very poor build,,being made as cheap as possible, and it really shows...but hey,,if you like constant problems and the need for a thousand upgrades ,in an attempt to fix them,,,buy a 5800,,,and you too can be one of the million or so nokia stawllwarts ,who will spend countless hours typing #ooo*#*#000*#00000***#in an attemped to update,,,or taking of the back cover to remove the battery because its frozen,,or whats even more fun,,spending time at a nokia care centre,,again and again and again+1 more again,,,i loved doing that

  • Lomba

I am interested in buying this phone, so I ask people who already have it..How good is the battery life? I am a normal user, mainly only use sms & phone calling. I might be inclined to chose an Lg, but their battery life is usually very poor. Also, how good to pics look on this phone? I'd like to hear a good review from someone who already has it.Thanks.

  • Carlo

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970With the new firmware the processor has been reclocked to 434Mhz from 369Mhz of the old firmware. But the sad and rather embarrassing truth is that is runs only at 192Mhz. This is very strange because technically at 192Mhz it's supposed to be fairly slow which it isn't. Nokia must must explain this whether it actually runs at 192Mhz or at the claimed speed of 434Mhz.
