Nokia 5800 review


The 5800 is a decent multimedia phone that also handles web browsing and email. Considering its low price, the 5800 is excellent value. The touch screen makes it frustrating to use for writing documents or emails, but in all other respects it's pretty...

Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic review


The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is Nokia's latest music sensation. With a touchscreen, 3.2 Megapixel digital camera featuring a Carl Zeiss lens, built-in GPS antenna, HSDPA support and Wi-Fi, this Nokia Mobile phone is extremely versatile, and not only when...

Nokia 5800 Tube review


The Nokia 5800 is by no means an iPhone replacement, but if you're not into the iPhone and you want a good music handset with a decent camera, this might be the one for you, especially if you get the handset bundled with Nokia's Comes With Music offer,...

Nokia's first taste of touch


TALK ABOUT radical transformations. Nokia's first ever touchscreen handset, the 5800, shows the approach the market leader is taking towards far more unconventional GUIs. It's very flexible but is this entirely necessary? To illustrate the point, for...

Plenty of choice with data input methods

Homescreen is ahead of its time and unnecessary

In the box, as well as the plectrum, Nokia supplies a tiny little stylus pen which is essential should you be rash enough to want to utilise the 5800's mini Qwerty keyboard option. Nobody has fingers small enough for the mini keyboard

Nokia Remix - Nokia 5800 exposed


The plummeting US market has prompted many agencies slash their forecasts for the consumer electronics market. Particularly, they emphasized lower-than-expected sales of high-end MP3-players. In a situation like this Apple's primary goals was to...

Review: Nokia 5800


The 5800 XpressMusic is Nokia's first touch screen Symbian phone, and while could have been seen as simply a forerunner for devices yet to follow, has proven to be a big hit in its own right.

Compatibility with existing S60 applications is mixed. Most will install and run, but you'll have to wait for touch-optimised versions if you want to get the most from them – and that will take a while.

Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition (Unlocked) review


Editors' note: For this review, we will focus on the GPS functionality of the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition in the Features section, since this the main differentiator between it and the XpressMusic version of the 5800. To learn more about the other...

The Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition offers voice-guided navigation with text-to-speech functionality, 3D landmarks, and premium content, all for free. Ovi Maps provides accurate directions and doesn't require a data connection. The handset also offers...

Route recalculations are slow and positioning was frequently off by at least half a block. User interface is a bit confusing at first.

As one of the more affordably priced handsets from the company, the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition is a good value, offering road warriors a midlevel device with decent navigation skills and the freedom of an unlocked phone.

Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition (Unlocked)


The Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition is a powerful Symbian smartphone and a competent navigator, but several major features are missing.

Loud, clear voice prompts. Sharp graphics. Accurate navigation. Fast performance. Low price for an unlocked device of this caliber.

No text-to-speech, or lane assist. Touch interface is sluggish and difficult.

Call Quality, Camera, and Conclusions Otherwise, the 5800 is a competent but flawed unlocked Symbian Series 60 smartphone. A brief recap: the 5800 is a slim, thick, lightweight slab. It measures 4.4 by 2.0 by 0.6 inches (HWD) and weighs 3.8 ounces. The...

Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition


In the meantime, Nokia have given us the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition which (as you might guess) is a tweak of the popular 5800 XpressMusic but with added navigation options. In this case, Nokia have given a lifetime subscription to their "DRIVE" and...

Nokia goes touch-screen with Express Music 5800


iPhone competitor won't quite beat its rival

Other useful applications are a file manager, voice recorder, converter, IM and notes. There are two games installed that make use of the accelerometer, but their novelty quickly wears off. Nokia says the 5800's battery will give users 8.8 hours talk...
