This device is a class apart from the competition. It offers rich feeling but on this type of devices, a more premium OS suits such as BB10. Android simply isn't for this type of phones. Rich hardware + Laggy malware infected OS is never a good combination. Someone tell this to Vertu.

so far no one in here seems to know what makes Vertu different from other phones. it is the concierge button which can provide you private jet service, personal security service, 1st class restaurant reservations and other premium things.

Its never about the software or the hardware.

Vertu= 90% profit,10% common sense.

So I'm starting a new company called NASA phones. 10,000$ each, anyone wanna buy? We don't kill baby cows, only genuine blue-green alien hide.

I think BB10 was more suited for such a phone. What are rich guys gonna do with having access to Google Play store!!!

Even bigger saphire display.... well that is Cool...
But I prefer the look of the TI or even the previous Constellation, over this... but it might just be the pictures.

If they are charging as much as a small car, they had better install KitKat a week after Google releases it. I don't even mind that they killed a baby cow to make the phone, but the phone better have 2GB RAM.

WTF? I really don't get Vertu or other premium phone suppliers when they charge that much for a phone but include outdated hardware. Surely it wouldn't break the bank for someone to fork out an extra $2-300 to get the latest processor when they're already forking out over $6K for this phone.
