Built-in GPS with Nokia Maps

The built-in GPS antenna enables you to always locate your position with the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. You will not be able to standard use the navigation function. The application Nokia Maps is preinstalled but works similar to Google Maps. If you purchase a license, Nokia Maps can be used as voice navigation system.

Microsoft Office files

Thanks to Symbian on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, you can also open Microsoft Office files on the handset. This goes for Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. In addition, Adobe PDF is supported. Unfortunately, however, you can only open the documents, not edit them.

Nokia Lithium Ion battery

The standard included 3.7V 1320mAh Lithium Ion battery provides an acceptable standby time. According to the specifications, a maximum standby time of 408 hours and a talk-time of 9 hours should be possible. However, the standby time of this Nokia 5800 mobile phone strongly depends on the applications used. If you listen to music a lot and take many pictures, the battery will run out in one day. If you use the Nokia 5800 to make the occasional phone call, a standby time of more than 4 days is possible. This is quite reasonable for this type of mobile phone.

microSDHC memory card

The internal memory of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic is 81MB. This is enough for a few pictures, however, if you want to use the phone as an actual music player; it's nothing. Thankfully, the memory can be expanded with a microSD/SDHC memory card, and in fact Nokia even includes an 8GB memory card. The memory card is inserted on the side of the phone, for which the phone does not have to be deactivated. You sometimes do have to fiddle a bit to get the card in place. The mobile phone supports memory cards up to 16GB.

 

Nokia Ovi Suite software

T he included software is the Nokia Ovi Suite. The software is beautifully designed when it comes to graphics and is easy to work with. You can install more packages in order to update the phone's software or consult or download Nokia Maps. Moreover, the standard software enables you to synchronize your agenda, transfer files to and fro the phone, make backups etc.
