Nokia 5800 rocks for music and adds some needed touchscreen flare

from Mobile Syrup (6 years ago)

After along wait to officially release in Canada, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is finally available and can definitely rank up there as one of their best devices to date. Other standout devices have there place such as the Nokia E71 for an all around Smartphone, plus the Nokia N95 8GB for gaming. But... More


Stellar, midrange hardware but software hampered it beyond salvage

from Engadget (6 years ago)

Would we recommend the 5800? Unless you like solving mysteries like "will this operation take one or two taps" and "what number corresponds to F on the keypad," no, we wouldn't. Nokia's come to the table with really good, if not stellar, midrange hardware here -- but the company's lack of willingnes... More

It's got some great features, but the touchscreen could be improved

from CNET (6 years ago)

Given the current selection of touchscreen phones, we expected a lot from the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Sadly, it didn't deliver the experience we'd hoped for. The 5800's screen isn't the worst we've ever used but it lacks the responsiveness of the iPhone's and, at times, requires a stylus. That said,... More


Delivers multimedia prowess and unmistakable Nokia identity

from GSMArena (6 years ago)

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 i... More

The main features are all executed well enough

from MobileBurn (7 years ago)

There are a few minor physical design issues, too. The phone feels a bit hollow and plasticky. It seems well built, but it just doesn't have that rock solid feel that phones like the 5310 XpressMusic do. The covers for the microSD and SIM slots look great, but can be a nightmare to open. I also disl... More

Very good, but a few flaws short of greatness

(5 years ago)

The 5800 is my fifth Nokia phone in eleven years, and while it's easily the best of the lot, it's not perfect. I'm running it on 7-11 Speakout (a Rogers MNVO), which is GSM only, and doesn't support smartphones, so I can't report on the social networking features, or any networking features outside... More

Pro: Battery, Applications, solid, internet, features, music playback, graphics Con: slow interface, touch screen, scrolling, camera It's just the perfect phones for teens, like me.
