I own a Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic ! Well there are things to be proud about owning this as well as some negatives. I faced the earpiece problem of Nokia 5800 which the initial lot of them had. Luckily it got fixed.
Then came scratches on my Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic’s touchscreen. I liked using the stylus provided by Nokia for my 5800 tube, but once scratches developed on my touchscreen, I went back to using just my fingers for everything on it. Stopped using handwriting recognition and adapted to using just the full qwerty keyboard using my fingers. Thanks to the different editing options provided.
I learnt that using a screen guard is must for these phones for using them for a considerable duration without damaging the screen. I researched on ebay to buy a good screen protector for my tube and finalized a clear screen protector for my Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic. Actually the seller sells two types of screen protectors – clear screen and mirror screen. Clear screen is the usual transparent thing, while mirror screen gives a flashy mirror like look when the phone is not in use (backlight is off). I chose the clearscreen one as it is cheap over the mirror one. It costed just 5$ (USD) for me for a set of 5 pieces. You can replace an old one with a new one as it get worn out, hence the extra pieces were bought. So hence just 1$ a piece.
The screenguard which I purchased is still in transit, so anxiously waiting for it and for using the stylus again !
By the way, if you have bought Nokia 5800 Xpressmusic, make sure to use a screenguard if you are planning to use the stylus. The stylus is soft, but when the phone is exposed to tiny dust particles, it gets stuck to the screen and when the stylus moves it pushes these particles and make tiny scratches on the screen. These scratches can be of any size depending on the pressure you apply on the screen. thats my experience. If your phone is new, try getting a screenguard before the screen get spoiled. These screenguards are easily removable, hence you can replace as they go bad.
