I helped my mum to get herself a 5800 2 days ago and she let me use it for a few days to test and to help her set up the phone (so that she doesnt need to go thru the hassle)

Well after 2 days of using the 5800 XPM, I have to say that I love and hate it at the same time.

LOVE:

- The high resolution screen: It’s one of the best screens I’ve seen so far for video playback and I have been watching my movies and podcasts with it whenever I have the time.
- The haptic feedback: The little vibration never fails. I feel it everytime I press a key on the screen… now touching the buttons or typing on the keyboard does not feel like touching dead glass anymore.
- The keyguard switch: I just love to lock and unlock the phone now as the switch is placed at the spot where my thumb is and it’s super convenient unlike my N96, the keylock switch is at the top of the phone.
- The media bar: It’s the shortcut to all my media! Photos, videos, music, web, share online… Thanks Nokia for adding this feature.. hehe.

HATE:

- Video recording: I have never seen a DVD-like video recording as grainy/noisy as this one! Seriously.. The videos will only look good if they are recorded under bright sunlight.. and bright sunlight only…. anything other than that you will notice graininiess in the video.
- Mark several: Do you know that in order to mark several photos/contacts in the gallery you have to go thru this? > (options > mark/mark all > mark > click on a photo > go back to options > mark/mark all > mark > click on another photo… ok I think you know what I mean by now)

More soon! :D

I stumbled upon Waitingfor5800 yesterday and I saw his post about 5800 themes. So I quickly googled for some and as expected, from my favourite theme artist, Pizero, I found this WinterTime Theme for 5800.

He produces very high quality themes for free. Visit Pizero.net to download this theme and more!

Here’s another one I found. It’s called Green Design.

Check out Nokia Betalabs Blog to download it.

This is my 4th post on the 5800.

Here are some photos of the device playing a video.

Looks damn good when watching videos on the wide screen eh?

Trust me… I witnessed it and the moment the video was played…. I nearly fainted… cos it was DAMN NICEEEE… not forgetting the super loud stereo speakers.

Now why is the 5800 so conveniently placed on the table? Did you realise it? Haha…

This is because, other than getting the cool casing, this 5800 stand is also provided in the package so that you can enjoy videos on the big screen while holding popcorn on your left hand and soft drinks on the other.

Somehow it reminds me of a photo frame stand. Haha…

OK here’s a video of the 5800 playing video… MUST WATCH!.. oh in the video I will show you where the speakers are… so watch out for that!

Prefer to watch it on Youtube? Click here.

In the video above, you will notice 3 empty buttons on the right side of the screen when the video was played. This is because the software is still under development as the 5800 is still under prototype stage.

Do you want to see more of 5800? Please leave a comment if you do.. or else I’ll go on with some other stuff instead :D

This is my 3rd post on the 5800.

This time, let’s look at the different types of input methods on the 5800.

Basically there’s 4:

- Handwriting (suitable to be used if you are not writing English)
- Full qwerty keyboard (for 2 hands usage)
- Mini qwerty keyboard (it can be dragged to any part of the screen, suitable to be used if you are left handed)
- Numeric keypad (same like the typical phone keypad… good for.. erm.. driving? LOL)

Here’s a video of the different types of input methods.
