Nokia 5800 XpressMusic review

 

Nokia's smartphone has no problems winning our affections

Touchscreen control ; Symbian S60 smartphone functionality ; A-GPS technology built in ; Wi-Fi ; HSDPA ; Excellent music player ; 8GB MicroSD memory card supplied ; 3.5mm headphone socket ; N-Gage gaming supported ; FM radio ; 3.2-megapixel camera ;...

Supplied earphones are average quality ; Touchscreen control doesn't have iPhone-style multi-touch ; Camera performance is limited ; Low light shooting not good

Nokia's first touchcsreen S60 smartphone packs in plenty of top features at a decent price

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic mobile phone - Pocket-lint

 

The phone might have the consumer in mind, but the stylus interface means it's unlikely to appeal to anyone other than a Windows Mobile user looking

Wi-Fi, 8GB of storage, 3.5mm headphone jack, HSDPA

Fiddly controls, only 3.2-megapixel camera

When we first saw the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic we thought it was more akin to the Samsung Tocco than the iPhone. Now we've had more time to play with the phone it would be better to suggest this is more Windows Mobile that an interface you can use with...

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic mobile phone - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

We didn't have long with the handset, but the time we had was promising if you're in to Nokia and touch

Touchscreen, HSDPA, interface

Some features were slower than we would have liked

Think Samsung Tocco rather than iPhone and you are on the right lines. The Nokia 5800 is very much a consumer touchscreen, but not in the same way as the Apple iPhone.

Whenever a new touch-screen phone comes along, a comparison is made with Apple's excellent iPhone.

Nokia's first touchscreen phone is snappy and attractive, but does it stand a chance against the iPhone?

A solid touchscreen music phone, but the iPhone needn’t fear Nokia yet
