Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

 

We at Tech2 have been covering the 5800, Tube, Bat-Man phone, i-Killer or whatever else you'd like to call it, for a long time now - ever since the rumors and fuzzy images surfaced. If you haven't, well you're either indifferent enough to have avoided...

With a price tag of just Rs. 19,990 the 5800 XpressMusic is worth a consideration not purely for some sort of novelty value as being a potential i-Killer or some device in Bat-Man’s arsenal, but for some great technology that’s quite well designed....

Nokia 5800 Xpress Music (Unlocked)

 

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 5800 XpressMusic review: Young as you feel

 

It's touchscreen o'clock for Nokia and the stage is set for the 5800 XpressMusic. Go ahead and touch it. We did and we've got a story to tell. Now, it's technically not the first time Nokia get their hands dirty with touch screens, but it sure feels...

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic ‘Tube’ Review

 

Nokia's first touchscreen handset, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, has finally found its way to our doorstep, and we've been playing with it for a week or so now. That's plenty of time to play around with all the available features, and a lot of our...

For the price, the 5800 Xpress Music is well worth the €279 unlocked that you would pay for it. We recommend this phone to the non-power users who want a nice touchscreen but do not expect a powerhouse. This phone is certainly a fun device, but falls...

Although Nokia's 5800 XpressMusic hasn't yet hit the PC Magazine Labs for full testing, I was able to spend a little time tinkering with the device. The time I had with it left me asking one big question: "Why, Nokia, why?" Casting aside some of its...

Solid call quality. Excellent video recording and playback. A year's worth of free music downloads with some models

Touch interface is buggy. Noisy photos

The Nokia 5800 XPressMusic offers some powerful media features, including free music, but its touch-screen interface needs work.

We witnessed some serious demand of touch screen phones last year. Most of the manufacturers leaned towards this market share and released their own models. It may sound strange, but until recently, the biggest manufacturer, Nokia, stood aside from the...
