Great article.

However, anyone who subscribes to the Chris Moyles podcast clearly has some deep seated issues.

I mean, come on!

Yes! Predictive text input for all the other text entry options (with an option to switch it off or on) would be very highly appreciated! Nokia, please listen to us!

Camera

Recently upgraded firmware to the latest version, and noticed a massive improvement with the camera quality.. think I went from v11 to v20. Anyone else notice this?

My noticeable improvement to camera image quality came after I fiddled with white balance.

Scroll options

Great article, excellent compilation. Keep up the good work.

One feature I'd need on this phone would be scroll buttons. Touch screen and all is fine, but when I am reading a long piece of text, I'd prefer the option of pressing a button which is not on the screen to scroll down or up. In the 5800, this would be a perfect second job for the volume buttons. Does anyone know how to make the volume buttons on the side double up as scroll buttons?

So the Finnish Nokia fanboy blogger finds the 5800 to be surprisingly good. Who wouldda thunk it?

some basic grips missing

I have this phone for over 2 months now, and in general im happy. BUT :

1) GPS lock is very slow compared to my blue tooth device. can take a few minutes.

2) Camera takes realy bad pics, even worse in low light. worse then my e70 which was preaty bad

3) if i get a call while using some apps the phone goes bonkers. the screen blanks and when i unlock it, it flickers and blanks again.

4) had a few crashes and lockups.

5) Text entry when using the full screen keyboard, is a pain, click on the text field, get the text window (one with lines like a pad) click again to open keyboard, type text click grean check to go back to text pad window click ok again to go back to original window. Why oh why do i need the text pad window ????

6) tiny scroll bar on screens

oh i have the 20 firmware if you are wondering.

still it dose all i need and want, and is better at it then any other phone i had. Hope nokia will imporve the touch interface in the next generations

Good review. And it's nice to see some of Tzer2's friends at the top of the story.

I always wondered what they looked like.

I find it to be very good too but I wasn't surprised.

FYI, Sony CMD-J5 had hardware key-lock switch long before Sony Ericsson S700.

Just to say that fullscreen web isn't bad thing at all, I want the white arrow in fullscreen to be removed also. Combine with virtual key and 5800 buttons, green button for options, red for back and camera for OK. Amazing

Angry

the click-switch at the side is driving me nuts! I always have the phone on the stand inside my car and when I need to make a call I always have to pick the phone up to unlock it because the stand is blocking the switch...

One of the reason I didn't change to 5800 is that I was confused by click and double-click in application navigator and in some applications, and unpredictable. Aren't you confused?
