An In-Depth Review Of The US 3G Friendly Version Of Nokia 5800 XM


I?m coming up on the end of a full week with the North American version of the Nokia 5800 Xpress Music and I have to say that I am still completely impressed by the device.

After a rather long wait to have it in hand, what with the 3G antenna delays and the rather weariness of US vendors to stock the phone in the months time after its official release, it came to me with rather high expectations.

I was immediately blown away with how solid of a release the whole package was. I hadn?t let the numerous reports on rather sketchy build quality, the unresponsiveness of the touch-screen, or the lackluster amounts of available software (or, for that matter, the overall maturity of the OS) really deter me from a purc... .. .

You certainly like the 5800 :). Don't blame you. I have had mine since January & still love using it. Did'nt think a phone would replace my N95 but that has been in it's case since receiving the 5800. All my converted avi's & dvd's look great on screen, also the sound quality, while not being any louder, is much better quality than the N95. I have the vibration & animation turned off as I prefer the faster response. I also prefer using the stylus as I hate mucky phone's. Nokia have certainly wetted our appetite for touch screen's which was probably the reason they released this phone at such a great price. Looking forward to the next firmware update to sort out a few small bug's.

Very detailed and long review, this writing is definitely worth learning from :yeah:
And like I said somewhere before, I'm also tempted, but I'll wait, I'll wait for the ultimate 5th ed device, not necessary Nokia but I predict it'll be expensive as hell nevertheless :(
