Nokia 5800 XpressMusic review

 

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

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic mobile phone

 

Nokia is hoping to take on the touchscreen giants of the mobile phone realm with the launch of the 5800 XpressMusic. But can the company who commands almost 40% of the market conquer the touchscreen world as well? We get touchy feely with the new...

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

 

After years of waiting, Nokia has finally entered the touchscreen arena, but is it worth the wait? We get touchy feely to find out. The Nokia 5800, as it is now called (it used to be referred to as the Tube), is the first consumer-focused touchscreen...

Touchscreen, HSDPA, interface

Some features were slower than we would have liked

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 Xpress Music (Unlocked) review

 

While other manufactures (hello, Samsung ) rushed headlong into the touch-screen phone craze, other manufacturers were more cautious. For example, just look at Nokia. Though the cellular giant pumps out phones by the dozen, it wasn't until the Nokia...

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers a sharp touch screen and compact design, it also features a 3.2-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G support.

The user interface needs some work including the input and navigation methods. The Nokia Music Store is not yet available in the United States.

The Nokia 5800 XpressMusic offers an attractive design and feature set, but the touch-screen phone has some shortcomings compared with the competition.

Nokia's first proper touchscreen phone has been a long time coming. The 5800 XpressMusic is being pitched as an affordable alternative to the iPhone, yet still packs in Wi-Fi, GPS and HSDPA (3.5G). Plus,…
