5530 doesn't have CPU. So it will be as fast as 5800. So no one can say that 5530 is better than 5800.

Man, this 5800XM is waaay better than the HypePhone in one key function that Americans don't place much importance on: SMS text messaging. I tried it side-by-side with the iPhone, and the 5800XM is better and much more responsive/faster in SMS texting. It's just like typing on a real hardware keyboard, unlike on the HypePhone where SMS texting was not optimized since it's a little-known & -used function in the US.

Try it both for yourself, and you'd know that the 5800XM is *the better touchscreen phone for those who are heavy texters (meaning, the rest of the world outside the US)*.

this is a very good phone for its performance and price. also user feedback is more on the positive side. I will buy it now after my long wait.

i think if 5530 xpressmusic will have a more stable operating system "no lags , hangs, crashes," and also a better quality 3.2mp camera and a much better home screen shortcuts like the standard "6 or 5 not sure" icon shortcuts and the friends shortcut icons all in one homescreen , this will be a better alternative over the 5800 even though it doesnt have 3G or GPS !

Additioanl Wish list on 5530:
I also hope the loud speaker of 5530 will be as good or even better than 5800 and i hope its battery last long even if its only 1000 mah !

Hi, does anyone have this phone on the Orange network? I would just like to know whether Orange have branded the menus as their own as they usually do with their phones? Hope not!

I have to say, this is a great phone! The gps is excellent, and the music playback is great. the resolution is brilliant, and video playback is smooth and crystal clear. Battery-life is acceptable. Touch interface is great... It was disappointing to not receive the stand and case advertised-what's with that? Anyhow, need to get some sort of case for it as the screen is a bit of a dust-collector. All in all, Nice job NOKIA!

Aloha from Hawaii. My name is Tim, aka Cellular-Decay.

I'm a Computer, Gadget geek from way back. Besides computers and gadgets, I also enjoy photography, snorkeling and SCUBA diving, fast cars and even faster women (or is that the other way around?). Just kidding about the fast women, so no offense to the ladies here. Wink I also enjoy astronomy, and being a computer, gadget geek, of course I also like video games.

In spite of my fascination with gadgets, I only recently got into fancy cell phones ("smart" phones). I used to carry a basic phone and a PDA, because I didn't like what was available in "convergence" devices. It just seemed like they were too much of a compromise.

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic "Tube" seems to have changed my mind, since my old Razr and Zodiac have been collecting dust lately. There are things the Zodiac did better, but I'm still early in the learning curve for the 5800, and I'm pretty confident that with some more time (and applications) I will find it easy to forget the old Z.

There are, of course, lots of things the 5800 does better, so even if I can't totally forget the Z, I'm sure I won't have any regrets.

Oh well..I hang out at a lot. take care all. See ya 'round.
