Editors' note: For this review, we will focus on the GPS functionality of the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition in the Features section, since this the main differentiator between it and the XpressMusic version of the 5800. To learn more about the other...

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.

As one of the more affordably priced handsets from the company, the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition is a good value, offering road warriors a midlevel device with decent navigation skills and the freedom of an unlocked phone.

Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition (Unlocked)

 

The Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition is a powerful Symbian smartphone and a competent navigator, but several major features are missing.

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.

Call Quality, Camera, and Conclusions Otherwise, the 5800 is a competent but flawed unlocked Symbian Series 60 smartphone. A brief recap: the 5800 is a slim, thick, lightweight slab. It measures 4.4 by 2.0 by 0.6 inches (HWD) and weighs 3.8 ounces. The...

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...

Nokia 5800 Review of Camera – Not That Good

 

I've taken several photos with the Nokia 5800 and it makes me miss my N85 and especially the Nokia N82. The photos from the Nokia 5800 are noticeably worse. Take a look at sample photos I took this past weekend.

For a 3 megapixel Carl-Zeiss camera with dual-LED’s flash, I was hoping to see better pictures from the Nokia 5800. It did not meet my expectations, but maybe I expected too much. What do you think? Does it meet your expectations?
