had my 5800 about a week but its broken so vodafone have offered to exchange for another 5800 or anything else, any suggestions?? whats better the 5800 or n96? or something else?


I have had both but i like the big screen on the 5800,However i would say the n85 is better than the n96 if you want to go that route,N96 is a bit of a brick,

just googled it, it does look good.... wonder if voda will let me have it? :-D

5800 .... or get a iphone

Im sure they will, just start crying on the phone or something if they dont let you at first always works a treat... My upgrades not due til end of april, deffo going for that bad boy...!! wasnt a fan of using just touch screen cos u cant sneaky text on it in ur pocket at work cos u cant feel what ur pressing so this phone is ideal!

I had a 5800 for a week on vodafone upgrade, I thought it was pants. Poor GUI, poor touchscreen response, didn't like the raised edge, cheap plasticky look and feel, bendy screen etc etc. I am used to Symbian (had an N95 8GB) but I found this s l o w.
I compared it to a friends iphone and the 5800 was outclassed in almost every way. Even the supposed excellence of the dedicated sound card on the 5800 sounded no better to me than my N95 8GB.
If you can do without the 'slightly' better camera on the 5800 (I wasn't impressed with it) and the mms thing etc then go for an iphone. I've just ordered one.
5800 on PAYG = £250 + min £5 pm web = £310 over 12 months
iphone on PAYG = £340 with free web for 12 months
£30 more, but in my opinion a vastly superior bit of kit, like 5 times as good.
Just thought I'd add my opinion for anyone who is not sure. I wouldn't have bothered with the 5800 if I had known.
PS I am not anti-Nokia or pro-Apple, but I just like quality kit

i think you should go for 5800 but as everyone's choice is different so go for google and search "comparison 5800 N96" this would lead you to the result.At last if i would be there,i could have been choosen 5800
