Which one is better? Tough call, really. My take on it is if you want a phone that has a camera that delivers high quality photos (approximating that of full-fledged digicams), then get Samsung Marvel. But if you want a phone with top-notch internal specs for quite good internet browsing experience, runs on Symbian 6.5 (duh) and supports HSDPA connectivity, then get Nokia 5800 XM.

Nokia 5800 user? Samsung Marvel owner? What can you say about your phone? Please leave your comment below. Thanks!

  1. Samsung needs to improve their quality standard to go with the new trends...There are still glitch on the phone itself which bothers me somehow...
