The touchscreen features tactile feedback (though it does not use Nokia's Haptikos technology).Nokia 5800 XpressMusic was launched together with the service Nokia Music Store, the predecessor to Nokia Comes With Music (later known as MixRadio), which consists of a year of free music downloads included in the price of the phone. This service was optional to the carriers.
The 5800 XpressMusic was a commercial success with 8 million units sold a year after release. It was praised for its supplied stylus and low price, but was viewed negative by critics for its camera and software issues.
