Videos Nokia 5800 vs X6 from Youtube
The Nokia 5800 is still a favourite three months shy of its second birthday. It was in October 2008 that the 5800 was announced, and it has been atop the popularity charts almost ever since.
In contrast, the Nokia X6 is a much newer model, but costs double the price of the 5800. Is the X6 worth the premium?
We found that the X6 has slightly better spicifications for the camera at 5.0-megapixels to the 3.2-megapixels of the 5800.
Then the X6 has a good 32GBs onboard, and there is also a 16GB version but neither the 32GB or 16GB devices have expansion card capabilities.
The OS for both the X6 and the 5800 is Symbian v9.4, so we shall have to say that this pretty much explains why the 5800 is so popular. There seems to be little purpose in paying double the price for a similiar product with a slightly better camera and more storage.
