Nokia 5800 VS Samsung Tocco


by: Caroline Telford

With each new touchscreen cell phone coming on the market vying to unseat the Apple iPhone, the Samsung Tocco and the Nokia 5800 both offer features that will give users two new choices in the race to be the dominant player. Both phones have a variety of features and elegant styling that should catch the attention of those looking to purchase a new touchscreen phone.

The Samsung Tocco has a solid feel and a good touchscreen interface that uses Haptic technology to give the user responsive feedback when using the 2.8 inch screen. Its size makes it very portable and easy to carry around in your pocket. The Nokia 5800 has a 3.2 inch, high resolution screen that provides the user with one-touch access to a variety of its features such as music, phone, and camera. It also comes with a stylus that will fit neatly in a slot at the rear of the phone. In addition to using your finger, the stylus gives the user another method of navigating through the different features of the phone.

The Samsung Tocco has a 5.0 megapixel camera, a 4X digital zoom, auto focus and LED flash. One significant feature that is often found on many standalone digital cameras is the automatic face detection that senses when photos of people are being taken. In addition to that feature, there is also the Smile Shot mode, which can detect when the subject is smiling. These features alone make this model worth considering. Its competitor only has a 3.5 megapixel camera, 3X digital zoom, auto focus and Dual LED flash. But despite the smaller megapixels, the other model does offers Carl Zeiss optics, which is a leader in camera optics. Both cameras offer a bevy of video and audio recording features that make the device very handy in a number of photographic or recording situations.

With one touch access to the music player, the Nokia 5800 has an 8 GB microSD card that can be upgraded to 16 GB. This gives the phone ample space to store a significant amount of tunes in your music collection. The other model also uses the microSD card for storage and it also includes an FM radio receiver. Both models uses the ultra-fast 3G network for web browsing.

Battery life on the Samsung Tocco will allow talk time up to 3 hours when using 3G and standby time lasts up to 250 hours with 3G. Phone voice quality is not as good as it can be and that gives the edge to the other model. The other modelÕs talk time extends up to 8 hours with GSM and 5 hours with WCDMA. Standby time is about 400 hours with both protocols.

Both phones offer the users a wealth of features that will give those considering the Apple iPhone or other smartphone models a reason to consider these models. With sleek and sophisticated touchscreens, robust camera phones, and good music-playing capabilities both phones are just about evenly matched. With slightly better phone quality and the larger screen, the edge may go to the Nokia 5800.

Nokia 5800 VS LG Cookie


by: Caroline Telford

The Nokia 5800 Xpress Music and the LG Cookie are comparable, though they have different functions. While the 5800 Xpress is meant for those who love to take their music with them everywhere they go, the Cookie is for those who want something a bit more basic. Both phones were announced in the Fall of 2008, and both are available now for purchase.

The XPress phone provides fast data speed, though there are some complaints about the phone lagging. The other phone, however, has a significantly low data speed.

The music phone is 4.37 x 2.04 x 0.61 inches, and weighs 3.84 ounces. The other is 4.19 x 2.18 x 0.47 inches, but is a little bit lighter Ð 3.14 ounces. If you compare the displays for both phones, the Nokia is larger, at 360 x 640 pixels and 3.20 inches. The LG cell phoneÕs display is 240 x 400 pixels, and only 3 inches. Both mobile phones offer a touch screen display, complete with a stylus and handwriting recognition. The 5800's touch screen is favored considerably over the otherÕs by phone users.

The battery life for both cell phones is significantly different. The 5800 has a talk time of almost nine hours, whereas the LG CookieÕs talk time is less than four hours. The stand-by battery life for the Nokia 5800 is approximately 406 hours, and 350 hours for the LG.

For some, the camera is one of the most important details on a phone. The 5800Õs camera is 3.2 megapixels and can also record video as well as auto focus, flash, and digital zoom. On the other end of the spectrum, the other phone's camera has a resolution of 3 megapixels and while it can record video, it doesnÕt have a flash.

The Xpress was designed with music lovers in mind, and it can play MP3s and more, including FM radio. While the other phone also offers FM radio, the music options are much more limited. It can only play MP3s.

As far as memory goes, the Music has its opponent beat. It offers 81 MB of built-in memory. Its competitor only offers 48 MB. Both phones use the MicroSD card.

As far as the extra features go, both offer picture and ring ID, alarm, calendar, and a calculator. They have the basics covered. The 5800 offers voice dialing as well. The main complaint as far as the other phone goes is that it offers no Wi-Fi and there are many bugs in the software.

Since the phones are quite different from each other, it is obvious that they are intended for different types of users. The Nokia 5800 Xpress Music is designed for those who want their music on the go, as well as a camera that is as good as some digital cameras. The LG Cookie, however, was intended for somebody who wants a phone with them, but doesnÕt intend on using it much while they are out. While it is compatible with music programs, the battery life isnÕt nearly as long as its
