Advantages: price, accessibility, layout, style, music features, touch screen
Disadvantages: lack of apps, no BBM, internet not as accessible.
I have always loved the nokia range of handsets, they are very accessible, their layout is brilliant, and presentation always impressive, however the Nokia handset that reigns over all of them- is the Nokia Music Express.
The presentation of the handset is very suave, usually available with its own personal styler and the handset has the feature of touch screen. This was the third or fourth time I had experience a touch screen and this handset by far exceeded the others, it was quick and effecient and didn't lag!! The battery life of this phone is another positive feature, there were times when it would stay on for days without being charged and I would wonder...how is it doing that?! The music is the best feature and I spent many hours listening to uploaded tunes that were available via internet download or from connecting a usb to a laptop, transferring songs. The layout of the phone is stylish and very accessible and is my favourite layout to date, the phone has many different categories that are easy to find and handle. One of most unusual elements of the phone is the text messaging, there are several different ways to write out a message; either writing on an touch screen keyboard, alpanumeric keypad or using the styler to draw the letters , which brings fun to even the most boring texts. The camera is another positive element and takes very decent quality pictures.
This handset has many redeeming qualities and has such style and charisma, so much so I couldn't let mine go for it is still my sole handset now. Although it may not compete on the levels of the iphone and the blackberry phones, this phone is very cheap for how much it has to offer and I would advise anyone to take a second look at the nokia 5800 express music and just give it a chance.
Summary: Buy it!
