10 things Nokia did wrong in making the 5800

| April 27, 2009 | 2 Replies

Addressing, coincidentally, yesterday’s “what would you change about the Nokia 5800?” Steve Litchfield from AAS points out 10 things Nokia realistically could have changed about 5800 XpressMusic before release (Instead of the “I would change it by giving it 20 MP with 5000X zoom!!).

This includes integrating both contact view and standard active-standby view as the 5800 certainly has the screen space and pixel density to display both simultaneously [See screenshots from AAS]; and also the inconsistent UI, that feels like S60 had just been slapped with a touch screen (with no real thought about this new paradigm of interactivity and how to efficiently utilise it)

Then there are the physical changes that we probably won’t see in future 5800 handsets; improved camera, graphics accelerator, better materials overall, but should we really expect so much for the price it started at? The only one I would really have wanted to see is the graphics accelerator because this means inconsistent applications should future S60 applications harness the power of the graphics accelerator, 5800 users will be left out (or at best, get a choppy experience).

If you want to feel a little better about your 5800, Steve also did a “10 things Nokia did right about the 5800“.
