21 Reasons Why Nokia 5800 is better than Apple Iphone

  • Today I realized that I’m bored with my old phone so I want to buy a new phone and I’d like a touch screen one. Was thinking smthg between Apple IPhone, Samsung Mythic SGH-A897, Samsung Omnia II, LG KE 850 and Nokia 5800. I decided to exclude Samsung and Lg because I always heard bad things about them, my sis and my cousin had them and they broke pretty fast, battery wasnt lasting really long and so on.
    So here I am stuck in between IPhone and Nokia 5800. Almost all my phones were Nokia phones , I only have good words for Nokia, very easy to use, great battery , etc. Browsing on internet , I found this article which I thought was really useful so I decided to post it here, maybe will help you when you wanna chose between a Nokia phone and an Apple IPhone. 🙂

    Verdict: Almost all the major brands around the world like Samsung, HTC, LG, etc launched their touchscreen smartphones with a hope to beat Apple’s Iphone. No-one came close to Iphone when it comes to looks, style, feel and features.

      Hey JesseJo!

      I don’t have the NOkia so no reference there but coming from the blackberry bold 9500 and moving to the iPhone 3GS, I wouldn’t go back. The iPhone is unreal, so many kick ass apps. I would buy another in a heartbeat. If I wasn’t buying another iPhone.. Motorola’s Droid has me smiling for sure. 😀
