The Design

  • The phone has a few sweeping controls and you can move through the song list but if you are expecting some iphone treatment, you should hold your chain of thought right here, right now!  You can get this phone with a stylus with it so if you are new to the touch control, you will get all the help you can get.

You can even download numerous applications in your 5800 and enjoy all the way! Applications that are already included are the camera, internet browsing, dictionary, and calculator.

  • The text entry of this phone is normal as long as you are getting used to the phone because the keys are small but the right size and whenever you hit a key, the phone vibrates in response. However, whenever you log in any kind of entry, you need to take your finger off the phone in order for it to register that you have actually touched a key. Don’t expect to type fast if you want to be an expert, be calm and patient with this baby!


  • The phone comes with a 3.2 megapixel camera that has an autofocus facility inbuilt. In addition to this it has a dual-LED flash which makes it a decent camera to use and appreciate.

Storage and Multimedia Qualities:

  • You even get an 8GB card for this phone and a memory expansion that can store all of your required pictures, music and documents, however, it’s nothing compared to Nokia X6 Review which comes with 32 GB storage and specifically targets the music fans. A Bluetooth and USB 2.0 version is also included in this package and the audio quality of this phone is the best you could want. Coming at a very affordable price, this is also an office document viewer.
  • However, it has a build quality and it may be considered too big for those who have small hands. The camera does not come with a flash and the video recording is not of the highest quality and even the touch screen quality is not the best. The image of the camera is also not perfect for a 3.2 MP.
  • This phone is a good one for those who have not experienced the iphone because after all, it is a touch screen and as more technology takes over our lives, the more we want of it and this is the phone that knows it.
  • It allows you to store wallpapers, games and most importantly themes to your mobiles, you can feel free to download and install themes seamlessly in your handset, all these new themes make the handset give a great feel.
