Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition (Unlocked)

 

GPS on cell phones is no longer an emerging trend. It's almost a must-have feature nowadays, and more and more handsets are offering it. However, taking advantage of GPS, and the navigation powers that come with it, usually comes at a price. If you...

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

Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition

 

The mount doesn't just snap together; to assemble it, you need a screwdriver, an X-acto knife, and some patience. The result is a heavy and sturdy mount that stays put on the windshield, and lets you snap the handset in and out regularly. But it's much...

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

The Nokia 5800 is a good GPS navigator and an affordable unlocked smartphone, though it doesn't really excel on either count.

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...

Review: Video review: Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

 

Since we know you're all anxious to see it in action, we've put together this 4 part video review of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, the first S60 Touch device on the market.

I've owned this phone for almost a year now and I'm finding it hard to replace because it's just... well, awesome. I bought it unlocked and have had no problems with it whatsoever. It's a fairly compact phone but it can do so much and has LOADS of...

"Value destroyed by lousy software"

 

Syncing the phone with your PC and Outlook requires Ovi Suite, which has been a disaster. My calendar has not synced for 6+ weeks and Nokia "support" doesn't. If you need your contacts, calendars and reliable software updates, don't even think about...

Lots of pre-packaged value

All value destroyed by software that plain doesn't work
