Nokia 5800 Unboxing & First Impressions
Hello! Are you a Nokia 5800 XpressMusic owner? Please take the quick survey here!
So, I returned back to the Nokia Store after the line has thinned and bought a unit to review. Will need a couple more days to cook up a full review but here are my first impressions and some more unboxing photos of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Update: Read our full Nokia 5800 Review.
What’s inside the box? The Nokia 5800 phone, a stylus (+1 extra), the guitar pick (plectrum, works as a stylus too), charger, microUSB cable, TV out cables, headphone + handsfree, hardshell rubber casing, phone stand, and CD installer.
The presence of the stylus and the guitar pick stresses the need to use them instead of your finger. The phone is a little bulky but feels light for its size and the screen size isn’t as large a real-estate as expected (same as the Xperia X1).
The 5800 is not Nokia’s first full touchscreen phone. They had the Nokia 7710 back in 2003 but was discontinued. Since then, Nokia had 5 years to fix and perfect their touch screen platform and UI so my final review will put some focus on this. Likewise, as a member of the XpressMusic line, the Nokia 5800 is expected to rate high on the multimedia side.
So far, I’m not very impressed (for one, the microUSB port is busted and cannot be detected by the PC). Expect the full review of the Nokia 5800 within the week.
