First of all , We all know that the Nokia N97 sells for higher and is the flagship Model of Nokia [Until the N900 hits the stores] and that the 5800 is a mid range mobile phone specializing in music and multimedia.
N97 and 5800 , both have touch screens, both phones use the same operating system , etc.
There are quite a few similarities , but thats about it , otherwise , the N97 is High end mobile phone specializing in everything one can expect from a mobile phone!
So there is nothing to actually compare! Yet , let us do it!
Oh , and I almost forgot , we will be comparing the N97 with the all new 5800 Navigation Edition , a totally new 5800 made specially for easy Navigation!
Once the N97 is being compared , we already know the winner!
The all new 5800 Navigation Edition!
So now , let us begin!
Memory : Both phones have 128 mb of RAM , and come with around 75 mb of storage in the C: drive , but the N97 has an edge as it has 32 gb of mass memory as well as a slot for a Micro SD memory card of capacities upto 16gb[sames as the 5800]. The 5800 Navigation Edition comes with an 8gb Micro SD card as the 5800 did.
Display : Both phones have the same resolution at 360 x 640 pixels , but the N97 has a 3.5 inch resistive touch screen while the 5800 Navigation Edition has a 3.2 inch. The 5800 Navigation Edition’s screen does not fare well in the bright daylight , so its not really something which can be placed directly facing the sun light.
Connectivity : Both phones are equipped with the same features.
Battery : The N97 lasts a little longer by giving an additional half an hour of talk time on 2G and an extra one hour on 3G over the 5800 Navigation Edition . The N97 gives 9 and a half hours on 2G and 6 hours on 3G of talk time.
Camera : The N97 has a 5 megapixel camera , leading the 3.2 megapixel camera of the 5800 Navigation Edition . The 5800 Navigation Edition’s camera has the same problem as the 5800 , there is a little too much of Noise. The N97 on the other hand , has an excellent camera and shoots Video at VGA resolution at 30fps,The 5800 Navigation Edition too shoots video at the same resolution, but the quality is better on the N97.
Another interesting I noticed about the phones is the lens angle , where the N97 gives a little wider crop ratio! Take a look at this image to understand
Wider picture on the N97
Navigation : This is where the 5800 Navigation Edition has a major plus over the N97 , The 5800 comes with regional maps and Lifetime pedestrian and vehicle voice-guided navigation licenses! So that means no paying each time for using voice guided Navigation! The N97 comes with only a trial , after which you will be required to pay an amount to continue the voice guided navigation services.
Other Features : People who are not used to messaging on a touch screen might find the 5800’s on screen keypad a bit difficult , the N97 comes equipped with a slide out full qwerty keypad!
Overall : The N97 leads specification wise , but the 5800 Navigation Edition is not just for people looking for an extreme Navigation phone, but its also a powerful phone , and for it’s price and build quality , it outdoes the N97 , unless we all have enough cash to manage with the N97!
