Nokia 5800 XpressMusic appears to be the section of Nokia touch screen mobile phones created for musical sensation as the name suggests. Unmistakably, the set has been fitted with even smallest bit of known technology for musical supremacy. The first attention catcher is the excellent audio; the lingering effect is more sensational. Obviously, the set has standard 3.5 mm audio jack, stereo FM radio with RDS and Bluetooth.
More to its sound department are downloadable polyphonic MP3 ringtones and the stereo speaker. A ‘music centre’ may not be a misgiving overall comment as the battery is claimed to play music up to 35 hours. Through the fortification with Java, the musical fete goes high for the WMA// MP4/RV/ 3GP video player and the music player which supports MP3/WAV/WMA/RA/AAC/M4A formats.
The OS of Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is Symbian S60 v5. But, the set distinguishes itself with very fast access to the menu; a slow access to menu has been much a cause of annoyance of Symbian OS. This set holds a TFT resistive touch screen of 3.2 inch of 360 x 640 pixels, with an aspect ratio of 16:9, and has a capacity to analyse 16 M colours. Additional features are proximity sensor for auto turn-off, handwriting recognition and Accelerometer for auto rotate. XpressMusic is ready to take the commands through different inputs like touch, stylus and plectrum. QWERTY keypad is the other attractive feature of the handset.
Photography features of the set goes for 3.15 MP Autofocus camera with Carl Zeiss optics having 2048x1536 pixels and dual LED flash. The secondary camera is for videocall. Videography is a pleasure with VGA@30fps. Additional features are the integrated GPS including maps.
The storage memory of 81MB is expandable up to 16GBwith use of microSD (TransFlash) card. This mobile becomes more resourceful due to HSDPA support and Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and UBS 2.0. It feels nice to play with.
