Marymoose finds the perfect phone (again)! Review with images

AdvantagesExcellent phone, good camera, excellent MP3 player, touch screen, etc etc!

DisadvantagesOnly very few minor niggles such as fingerprints on screen

"...Hubby came across the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music (its full name), and pretty much decided straight away that that was the one. My main concern was that it didnít have a QUERTY keyboard like the one on my P990i, in fact it didnít have any keys at all. I couldnít really get my head around this, although obviously I have seen I-phones. Although my old phone had a touch screen, this wasnít instead of the keypad, and it wasnít for using when making calls. ..." Read review

Nokia 5800 Pushes All The Right Buttons Review with images

AdvantagesScreen, music player, internet access, easy access to functions, lots more.

DisadvantagesUm... it's so good I keep paying it too much attention

"...on my last phone, the Nokia E65, as well as cursing over things it couldn't do, I knew I was going to have to choose my phone more carefully. And then the iPhone was released and seemed to be everything I wanted... except for a nice price, so really it was out of the question. So when I came to finally renew my contract I had a look for what phone I could get for a reasonable price... and so I ended up with the Nokia 5800. ==In The Box== I waited ..." Read review

Big is not always best - It's what you can do with it. Review with images

AdvantagesSize, Design, Look, Speed, Memory

DisadvantagesNone so far

"...sites and decided on the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music. ==Why Nokia 5800 over all the others== I choose this model for a few reasons, I like the fact it had a huge memory, it is touch screen and to be honest I think it looks the part too. Given the fact it was a Nokia too I thought I really canít go wrong. In my opinion they are a huge contender in the mobile phone market. I also think itís very similar to the IPhone but for a much better deal. ==Cost ..." Read review

My review of Nokia 5800

AdvantagesGPS free, Wi-Fi, Free apps, practical, price going down

DisadvantagesGet stuck at times, fingerprints all over it in less than 2 days

"...a review about it. This Nokia 5800, in a few words, is easily one of the best mobile phones made by Nokia. I was not surprised to find it 3rd in the list of "Best Mobile Phones". I've been a Nokia customer for years, my last Nokia mobile phone lasted as long as 8 years in full working order (see my review on the ancient Nokia 7110) and only lately it started to give some twitches. I decided it was time to change it when people started to laugh about ..." Read review

Handy Little Thing

Advantagesgood features

Disadvantages-

"...BlackBerry I did want the Nokia N97 but the contracts were very high for this so my next option was the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. On looking at the phone it does seem quite thick but it is easy to hold and it is black. It is like a small computer screen a rectangle shape and if you turn it around the screen will turn vertical or horizontally which is quite useful although this does annoy me at times. The phone being a touch screen is hard to get used ..." Read review

The phone from The Dark Knight Review with images

Advantagesgreat sensibility, wide variety of functions, good recording quality, superb sound

Disadvantagesthe price

"...of design. Many more brands, Nokia being one of them, produces phones more and more "sensible" to touch. The number of buttons is minimized as much as possible, and their place is replaced by bigger and bigger TFT touch screens. Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is another proof that men don't want just a phone but a technological jewel. The menus with very suggestive icons are also found in this phone. This version operates on Symbian, 9.4 version. The ..." Read review

5800

AdvantagesUse of apps, good battery life, attractive handset

DisadvantagesApps expensive, battery life deteriorates

"I got my Nokia 5800 almost a year ago as part of an 18 month contract. I had originally intended to get an i-phone, however the 5800 at the time seemed more appealing. The phone itself is very lightweight, and is of a reasonable size to fit in your pocket etc. Personally i'd prefer it to be a little less chunky, however i have managed just fine with it. The handset comes with a stylus that slots into the side of the casing, which is good for internet ..." Read review

A nice little phone

Advantageseasy to use, clear screen, great for music

DisadvantagesBad camera

"...is labelled. As with most Nokia phones, the 5800 is quite user friendly, and has the same basic layout as all Nokia phones. I do not think anyone would struggle to use this phone, most things are easy to find, and they are all where you would expect them to be. The screen shows you the battery life left on the phone and also how much signal you have at any given time. This is easy to see even at a quick glance. You can also change the profile and ..."

The iphone's competition, Nokia 5800!! Review with images

AdvantagesFull bluetooth, great sound, wifi, 8 gig storage (expandable) Touch Screen and great screen size.

DisadvantagesTouch screen responsiveness is a bit tedious.

"...gig version and also the Nokia 5800. The nokia 5800 is Nokia's first venture into the touch screen world and they have released it as the dangerous opponent to the Iphone. Both phones are great in their own separate ways, Personally I still think the iphone has got the leading edge. The touch screen responsiveness of the nokia 5800 is nowhere near as greatly sensitive as the iphone. Often needing to put a little bit more pressure on the somewhat ..." Read review

The only device you'll ever need

AdvantagesSo many useful application

DisadvantagesLooks deceptively flimsy

"I bought a Nokia 5800 back in October, as i thought it was about time i had a phone that wasn't actually a pay as you go one for a change. This meant getting a contract phone, and this phone was an option so went for it essentially on impulse. I ordered it online from Vodafone, and following 10 working days i received the phone. I was initially rather shocked as i was expecting to find something very sleek and metallic, but was instead greeted ..." Read review

Easily able to compete with newer models

Advantagesmany functions, video viewing, 8GB of space, GPS and navigation software

Disadvantagestouchscreen fiddly to use with larger fingers

"I got the Nokia 5800 Xpress music as a free upgrade with Vodafone 18 months ago. As a result I've been locked into an 18 month contract with Vodafone, which is now coming to an end and usually I would take this chance to get one of the newer better phones by signing up for another 18 month contract. However I've been so happy with my Nokia 5800 Xpress music that I will be hanging onto it for the foreseeable future and downgrading my contract to Pay ..." Read review

Has everything but the kitchen sink!

AdvantagesStylish, features, modern, sleek

DisadvantagesGPS not great, complex at first

"The eagerly anticipated Nokia alternative to the iphone. It really had a lot to live up to if it was going to even match the competition; so its unbelievable to imagine the possibility that its actually better! . . .but miracles do happen it would seem. The phones stats and features could fill the whole page and you can get them from any good mobile phone website anyway so I won't waste your time listing them here. In simple terms the 5800 does ..."

Nokia 5800 - Nice phone, but several things that need sorting

AdvantagesA smartphone at a reasonable price with pleanty of Applications available on OVI

DisadvantagesSeveral little bugs that can make using the phone irritating

"I ordered the Nokia 5800 Music Express as I was after a smart phone, but didn't want to pay the silly contract price for something like the iPhone. Now at first I was impressed by the sleek design, the functionality of the touch screen, the quality and clarity of the display, and the graphical menu system. But Since owning and using this phone for about 6 months now, I have become less impressed. Below I'll break down the phone into it's features ..." Read review

Hop on board the Nokia 'Xpress'

AdvantagesEasy to use, texting is reasonably easy, good camera

DisadvantagesRather chunky, not the best touch screen (but I have seen worse)

"...admit the 5800 XpressMusic from Nokia is probably not the best one. In this review we will look at what is good and what is not-so-good about this handset in my opinion. I hope you enjoy it. === DESIGN: === The handset itself is quite chunky, which I personally don't like, but a lot of people like to have something big and solid in they're hands. On the front of there is a 3.2 inch TFT resistive touchscreen, and below it are 3 buttons, a Call Begin ..." Read review
