Nokia 5800 XpressMusic review: Young as you feel

OK then, what we have here is two newbies in the touchscreen league. A fact's a fact, but it's not exactly the kind of newbies everyone will look down at. Market leaders Nokia and the top selling smartphone platform must be ready to take a few beatings at the start of season but will hardly settle in for a long losing streak.

That said, introducing a mid-range handset to debut the touch-enabled S60 sure looks a smart move. read more →

  • 3.2" 16M-color TFT LCD 16:9 touchscreen display (360 x 640 pixels)
  • Symbian S60 5th edition
  • ARM 11 434 MHz CPU, 128 MB of SDRAM memory
  • 3.2 megapixel autofocus camera with dual-LED flash
  • VGA video recording at 30fps
  • Limited 3rd party software availability
  • UI is still immature with somewhat dodgy user experience
  • Touchscreen sensitivity not the best in the class
  • No smart dialing
  • Poor camera image quality

      Nokia's smartphone has no problems winning our affections

      With the 5800 XpressMusic Nokia has evolved its S60 smartphone legacy into a very serviceable touchscreen format. Practical evolution rather than jaw-dropping revolution is what you get.

      While it doesn't have the smoothness and easy elegance of the iPhone's ground-breaking touchscreen user interface, Nokia's first mainstream touch control device has a functional, easy to handle set-up, and performs consistently well. read more →

      • Touchscreen control
      • Symbian S60 smartphone functionality
      • A-GPS technology built in
      • Wi-Fi
      • HSDPA
      • Supplied earphones are average quality
      • Touchscreen control doesn't have iPhone-style multi-touch
      • Camera performance is limited
      • Low light shooting not good

      Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Review

      If we have to compare the 5800 with the other S60 phones, it should be placed somewhere in the middle. It’s clumsy and doesn’t offer anything more, in spite of the large touch screen. It has almost the same functionality, a bit poorer actually, because of the partial compatibility with the applications, made for the previous version of the OS. We may only hope that these issues will be fixed with the future software updates. read more →

      • Good balance between weight and dimensions
      • 3.2-inch widescreen display with high resolution
      • The sound from the loudspeakers, headphones and during a call is really high-quality
      • A good browser and flawlessly working GPS
      • An affordable price
      • It feels cheap and fragile
      • The display is almost unusable when exposed to direct sunlight
      • Suffers from software and performance issues
      • The accelerometer is too sensitive
