Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Review
Nokia’s first touchscreen, and very nice it is too. With touchscreens really becoming the trend in mobile phone technology, Nokia didn’t rush out a phone full of bugs just to compete, instead they spent time building a very good phone. It’s stylish, slim, and has a beautiful high-res screen (640x360 pixels), it really is a very attractive phone.
Firstly, the camera, at 3.2 megapixels, it’s not amazing, not when compared to some of Samsung and LG’s latest touchscreens; however, with its autofocus and Carl Zeiss optics, it does at least beat the iPhone’s rather pathetic camera. When texting, have no fear, like all touchscreens, the Nokia has the Qwerty keyboard feature for typing, it takes a little getting used to if your coming to it from a standard mobile phone, but once mastered, you’ll wander how you ever did without.
It also features a good mp3 player, as it should, it is after all primarily a music phone. The mp3 operations, like all the features on the phone, have a simple layout; and in general, as expected from Nokia, it is very simple to use, once you get used to the touchscreen sensitivity. Additional to this, is the capability to support 16gb of memory with a memory card, so plenty of music storage then. To complete this phone, it actually has a very good battery life, and will happily last a few days without charging. All in all, this phone is fairly flawless in what it does, and should be considered when looking into the increasingly competitive touchscreen market.
- Good Points: Where to begin; good phone, great mp3, and good battery life.
- Bad Points: In competition, the 3.2 megapixel camera will perhaps put some buyers off, considering the cameras offered by other companies.
- Others to consider: LG KP500 Cookie, Samsung Omnia i900, Apple iPhone.
- Free on contract with: O2, Orange & T-Mobile.
