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 5800 XPressMusic

 

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

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.
