The good: The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers a sharp touch screen and compact design, it also features a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G support.
The bad: The user interface needs some work including the input and navigation methods. The Nokia Music Store is not yet available in the United States.
The bottom line: The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers an attractive design and feature set, but the touch-screen phone has some shortcomings compared with the competition.
its the only phone i need...
by taj9127 on April 30, 2009
Pros: i like the music player feature with a 8 gig memory card, wifi capability is very useful and the overall look of the phone
Cons: i didnt like the touch screen inputs its a little hard for me coz my fingers are a little bigger and i end up touching 2 or more keys
Must be TWEAKED to your liking. Great with TIVO.
by digitalsmile on April 27, 2009
Pros: Plays video beautifully
I load my TIVO recordings on it
Great for displaying photos to friends
GPS and navigation really do work well.
Mr Kent German you are WRONG, the screen vibration IS adjustable and was my first tweaks.
Video cam is great
Cons: Must be tweaked to get it right otherwise you wont enjoy it
GPS setting wrong when new
Camera crap compared to N73, yes greenish hue.
Only 4 homescreen shortcuts
Navigation - need to subscribe.
Not many games or apps yet.

Summary: I love this phone - except for the camera - . If there were more apps and games I would have given it 4.5 stars. The software is definately a working progress, for example the video phone calls do not take advantage of the bigger screen. The caller image is still as small as it was on my old SE K800i. I guess Nokia want me to buy the next model which will have a better camera - but still won't be perfect. Maybe the model after that will have a xenon flash ..... you get the idea.
The quick start guide should have explained how to get all the info off my old Nokia and on to my new ph ASAP - that would have REALLY given me a quick start!!!
the best phone, I ever owned. make Iphone look.........
by desertfox1986 on April 24, 2009
Pros: the interface good, good touch responds, nice camera, like that i can use any head set, and that it comes with 8GB memory, and call quality is better than any thing i ever used. like that i can use a stiles if i want to.
Cons: it is not a Multi-touch and batter can be better but i do use it heavily.
Summary: there are thing that the iphone can do, this can do all the same thing, but there is not as many apps. I can copy and past, SMS, do video, ...
Summary: there are thing that the iphone can do, this can do all the same thing, but there is not as many apps. I can copy and past, SMS, do video, video calls, and is got flash for the web, and a flash for the camera. i see it as a iphone killer or at lest it's computation, like i sad before, the only thing that this phone dos not have is a Multi-touch screen
it is not for vodafone sim
by karpana on April 13, 2009
Pros: first i thought that something was wrong with that phone but then only i realised that it does not take vodafone sim anyway i was not informed by univercell shop people about this so i had to change into airtel changing my 8 year old vodafone number
Cons: such a costly phone not taking vodafone sim
GOOD! considerin tat it's nokia's 1st touch-screen
by meredith-tan on April 12, 2009
Pros: - LOVELY fone!
- sensitivity's consider not bad.
- volume of music ***** (but only when headset's nt plugged in)
- special way of lockin/unlockin of fone :D
Cons: - pic quality isnt very good,esp when using the secondary camera!
- music is playin too softly when headset is plugged in (usually it's able to 'cover up' noisy environment) :(
- unable to view the various time of received/ missed calls :(
Summary: well,i guess tis fone is really not bad considerin tat it's nokia's 1st touch screen fone.i've never thought of buyin tis fone at all,but ...
Summary: well,i guess tis fone is really not bad considerin tat it's nokia's 1st touch screen fone.i've never thought of buyin tis fone at all,but got lots of comments on tis fone tat it's quite gd,so i bought it in the end & the price is reasonable & AFFORDABLE!
# tho sumtimes it's not very 'obedient' s in the front camera can get reali pixelated n caused the picture to look bad -__-
# (s for main camera) the lighting is also nt so gd compared to other 3.2megapixel (Carl Zeiss) nokia fones.
# next, one disadvantage is tat u cant 'mark' the things tat u wan to move/ dlete juz by clickin it on the item u wan to move/ dlete...(eg. 6500slide, when u click the item tat u wan to 'mark', it'll 'mark' the item & u dun have to go to 'option' & choose 'mark' again)
i think overall it's quite gd.
stylish, pretty lookin & i simply love tis fone!!
Complicated user interface-can't beat iPhone
by prasadp17 on April 10, 2009
Pros: - you can use anything which can poke the screen to navigate(unlike iphone which can only be used with fingers, not even with gloves on)
- high quality speakers
- stereo bluetooth
- modem functionality
- video recording
Cons: - poor indoor picture quality
- dial pad does not have alphabets on it
- interface is not at all consistent(single click vs double click on some applications)
- not compatible with videos recorded using flash player 10
- browser is not intuitive
Summary: if you are looking for touch phone and you are Nokia fan then go ahead else go for iPhone

Summary: if you are looking for touch phone and you are Nokia fan then go ahead else go for iPhonePhoto quality is grainy even in sunlight/outdoor
-Nokia applications are nowhere near apple app store
- the interface is not at all intuitive
- accelerometer was too sensitive while playing the preloaded car racing game
- the phone hangs many times
- picture quality is not good even with flash(it has many modes and options for camera though)
- does not have basic timer application
- I liked the gps functionality because it lets us download the required city map from CD(OVI suite which comes with it) It has got the whole eurore, asia and US maps and you can choose which one you want to download on the phone. The best thing is that it does not need internet plan for GPS function.
- It has removable/upgradable micro SD card (it comes with 8 GB card)
- Removable battery
- lack of games, applications and songs as compared to apple)
- it is nice sleek, light weight phone (plasticky feeling though)
- It can be used single handed
- It can be used with amazon unbox(on demand video)
- I like predictive input for sms
- It comes with many accessories in box like remote for headphones, play stand, placard to use as stylus, stylus hidden under the battery cover, 8 GB sd card
- Nokia could have done better though

Universal phone for active lifestyle tho has some flaws
by bacci2006 on April 6, 2009
Pros: 1/ Nice selection of applications, Exchange mail support & sports tracker are great
2/ Excellent display which shuts down when phone is held at ear
3/ Battery life
4/ Internal GPS / network location combo is fast and often even works indoors
Cons: 1/ No shortcut to manage data connections
2/ Music controls on wire are awkward to use when jogging
3/ Average pic quality & greenish hue gives most pix a cold look
4/ Can't choose which phone number to use in contacts bar
5/ No USB charging
Summary: Build Quality

Summary: Build Quality
The build quality of this phone overall is average, the top and sides feel nice and solid, but the plastic back cover of the phone feels cheap. I'm afraid to break it every time I open it. I also wonder why Nokia supplied a useless protective phone cover that you can't even see through.
The 5800 doesn't charge via its USB port which is annoying as you have to drag a proprietary Nokia charger around, which on this model doesn't have interchangeable travel plugs.
The USB port itself is of the 'micro' kind, as opposed to the more common small USB port used by most portable hard disks.
It's great to have the choice to plug in your own earbuds straight into the phone or even in the music control wire. Too bad the music control buttons are so awkward to use while jogging.
I like the display on/off slider on the side of the phone, which I find better than the software slider of the Iphone.
As most phone camera's with a small lens, outdoor pictures are okay but indoor pictures are grainy even with the built-in flash. Surprisingly, most pictures have a cold look due to a greenish hue. Videos work quite well on this camera.
The phone's internal GPS in combination with network location info work really well and I often even have location info indoors. Great for geo tagging.
The battery life is good, even when simultaneously using GPS, bluetooth, music player etc.
The software on the phone seems stable, I haven't had any crashes yet after 3 weeks of use.
Overall the interface is very nice, and excellent display quality in combination with vibrating touch responses give the phone a very solid, quality feeling. There's an easy shortcut to music, browser and media, but not to the phone's data connections, which I find annoying as those like me without unlimited data plan or those who travel frequently want to have easy total control over their data connections to avoid painful invoice surprises.
There's a nice selection of applications available, Sports Tracker is my personal favorite.
If you're into blogging and personal networking, you'll love this phone.
Despite average picture quality and other hardware quality issues (plastic back cover, music controls, no USB charging) I would highly recommend the 5800 XpressMusic as its features, display and interface quality are unrivaled at this price. It's an ideal companion for people with an active lifestyle.

Summary: I like it better than the iPhone, Blackberry Bold, and Blackberry Storm. I am not into texting and this phone has everything I need on it. Unlimited data plan on AT&T is $15 per month vs. $30 on the IPhone or Bold.
