    Thumbs down Nokia 5800 Express Music, worst Nokia phone

    This is the worst Nokia Phone, I have ever used. After spending so much, now I don't know what to do with it. I am thinking of switching back to my old Nokia N73.
    Issues with it.
    1. Camera quality is very bad (N73 was far better then this)
    2. GPS doesn't work
    3. Random issues come like
    a. Not able receive call at times
    b. sms stays in outbox.
    etc. and when you restart it starts working fine.
    4. I just bought it a month ago and my earpiece (hear incoming voice) stopped working.
    5. Regular hangs

    I'm using it for 2-3 months right now and I didn't have even single problem, so far that is my favorite Nokia phone.

    I have been having random problems in certain places a lot, but as far as I have seen, it has been about terrible network. Also do check that you have enabled network positioning, without it the normal GPS can be really slow, and indeed network positioning does require datalink, so you need to have valid SIM card that can make data connection to a server.

    Basically all problems you are descriping could be caused by bad network, Also you could check our end-user discussion board and see if anybody in there would have better suggestions for you: http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/

    Should I point you to an excellent review of the device? Or should I point you to some other rant about it?

    Forum Nokia has nothing to do with this kind of issues, we're not making the phones, nor are we selling them. Nokia's product support can be found at http://www.nokia.com/support and a end-user discussion board at http://discussions.europe.nokia.com

    Try also updating to the latest firmware version (the latest v11 has fixes for some issues in the original v10).
