    5530 will not have wifi I think it will have gps.Contrary, 5230 will have wifi no GPS.
    I am too going to buy a cell phone budget 15k.
    Should I go for 5530 XM guys? Or any other models worth considering/
    Isn't N79 a bit older now?:?

    if you want
    good music + good screen + touchscreen + wifi =5800
    good music + good camera + very good battery life + wifi + solid build quality = zn5
    good music + good camera + wifi + gps + plenty of apps = n82

    i think you should chose between these 3. n82 and n79 are similar except camera in n82 is better. n82 is an excellent all rounder.
    Otherwise go for zn5. it is cheaper than the rest. but the sound quality, camera and battery life is awesome. also the build quality is great. very strong.

    here is the feature set for 5530XM:

    2.9" TFT resistive touchscreen, 16M colors
    Proximity sensor for auto turn-off
    Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate
    Handwriting recognition
    3.5 mm audio jack
    Internal 70 MB storage, 128 MB SDRAM
    4Gb memory card included
    Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
    3.15 MP, 2048x1536 pixels, autofocus, LED flash
    VGA recording at 30fps
    ARM 11 434 MHz processor
    Up to 4 h 54 min

    But my pick would be Samsung Jet. This phone is available for 18k-19k and the phone blows off every other phone inside 20k.

    here is the feature set:

    480 x 800 pixels, 3.1 inches resistive touch screen. gorgeous high resolution display
    TouchWiz v2.0 UI
    Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate and Motion UI
    Proximity sensor for auto turn-off
    DNSe (Digital Natural Sound Engine)
    3.5 mm audio jack
    Internal memory: 2GB / 8GB
    microSD slot
    Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
    HSDPA, 3.6 Mbps
    5 MP, 2592 x 1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash
    Geo-tagging, face, smile and blink detection, wide dynamic range
    Qualcomm MSM6246, 800Mhz processor
    talktime: Up 8 h 20 min

    I bought N82 for 14k, and very happy with it except for the battery backup.
    You can get it for even less, just search for the left over pieces in the market, as Nokia has stopped this model.

    5800 all the way!!!!

    if you can wait then get the 5530 as you can save some bucks....

    but if you use a lot of symbian apps that are not yet compatible with S60v5 and give more importance to camera than watching videos, then N79

    p.s. i have the 5800 ;)

    Take 5800 If you want larger screen,resolution and touch experience.
    Take N79 if you want better camera and feature rich phone.
    If you are planning to use the phone for 2-3 yrs N79 would be better.i remember on friend mentioning 5800 had fallen from his hand it started giving touch screen problems.
    You decide what you want,if you want to use for fun 5800 is way to go.
    N79-better camera + battery all other features same as 5800 minus touch + larger screen ;)

    guys, seriously.

    Just demo samsung jet and 5800XM at same time and you will feel that 5800XM is highly inferior to samsung jet.

    PS: I never felt that 5800XM is worth that price.

    Once you get addicted to symbian its hard to settle with dumbphone like jet.

    Anyway , i dont think 5800 is good for you since its camera is not upto the mark .

    N79 is better as you need good cam. Its a great vfm device . Hard to believe this little device is so powerful.

    @desiibond,
    Rightly said about Samsung Jet! One gr8 multimedia set if phone OS is no concern.
    Ok, another thing...I am planning for Omnia HD. And this is what Samsung Dealer at Noida quoted, when i visited the showroom:
    "Samsung Jet and I8910HD are the latest arrivals. Both are Korean manufactured. But Indian versions of Jet and I8910 packs more powerful processor than European models.
    Samsung Jet packs 835MHz processor instead of typical 800Mhz and I8910HD packs a 1GHz one." :D
    Too awesome naa?
    I practically fiddled with this gadget for more than 30 minutes. From Camera/Camcorder to Functionality, i was impressed. Its just, why Samsung decided to launch it with Symbian? A Win-Mo OS on this set would've been perfect. Not to mention the excellent 3.7" AMOLED screen. Too good for watching videos. The only thing, they didn't allow me was to check the Call quality! :p
    I believe, this is where the set will take some blows. Can't compare with Call quality of Nokia/SE!
    So, whats your take on I8910HD?
