    Nokia 5800 xpress music or Samsung Tocco?

    Which would you choose?
    ... and where can I get the best non-contract deals for these phones?

    Looking for a good price and a recommendation for either phone by anyone who owns or knows someone who owns one of these phones.

    Thanking you already. x

    I had a 5800 but couldn't get along with it

    Bit bulky, feels a bit cheap and the touch-screen isn't as responsive as i'd like

    It's for OH, he's a bit heavy handed with phones TBH - he's had more phones than I've had hot dinners - not cos he likes updating them but because he has an incredible knack for breakin them, is there some kind of protective case you can get for these touch screen phones?

    Yeah it comes with some god-awful plastic thing in the box. You can buy better ones though i assume

    Seriously though if he breaks phones as much as i do, you'll be better off looking at something else

    Has to be a touch-screen?

    Yeah, these are the only 2 he has any interest in. What would you recommend?

    5800, when you get used to it it is fantastic. As not had any experience with the other phones your asking about, might sound a bit like a nokia favourtist! Used to got for sony erissons which i loved to bits as really easy to use and did excatly what i asked it to. This nokia does the same and is really cool!

    wouldnt say so really, ive chucked an invisisheild on it which makes it feel and look better. plus it doesnt get scratched too.!

    Good point that. Didn't bother with a protector on mine and sctratched the middle of the screen almost instantly

Prob just me and my age 33 but switched it off and gave it straight back..... but thats only my opinion im sure other people love it...

    Obviously each to their own but if it's the Tocco Ultra then this has a keypad as well so you can text using "normal" keys!

    With the 5800 you can just write on the screen with the stylus and it is translated into text. it works brilliantly.

    also the 5800 has wifi the tocco doesn't, tocco looks better imo
