The revolution is already here and its name is “Nokia 5800 XpressMusic” – there will be no other similarly geared and at the same time well-balanced phone in 2009. It sports an unparalleled price/quality ratio and changes the rules for all phone makers out there, including Nokia itself.
The web browser works really well. WiFi is fast, and a bit easier to deal with in this edition of S60. The music player isn’t going to wow you, but it works fine. And the camera does a decent job as well. The main features are all executed well enough for most people to be very happy with the device.
For Nokia’s first attempt at a touchscreen, the Nokia 5800 is pretty impressive. And I also liked the fun use of the accelerometer – when the phone rings, just turn it upside down to silence the ringing.
There’s plenty else to recommend the phone in addition to its music-playback capabilities. Nokia has done a good job of making commonly used programs and functions – such as the alarm clock, internet and Bluetooth connectivity – accessible with a single click, rather than buried within nested menus.
