A "luxury phone"? LOL The only folks that would get this are Real Housewives & a few other nouveau riche types. A luxury phone is a high-end phone & that's about specs, not diamonds, gold and leather. These have always been so cheezy and tacky
Even if a lot of you will say it is a premium device I should still say it is very UGLY! It looks like it was designed for a scifi movie that deals with aliens from the outer space! So overpriced but I get it, it is due to the materials used but still, the design is crap! Nice try though Virtu. I bet, even the richest people in the world would choose the overrated iPhone over this. :D
One-Four-One, 03 Jun 2014how much thick it is? Looks very thick for the overpriced luxury phone.
from the site
too heavy but who cares?the phone is still awesome!
Eplak, 03 Jun 2014Don't be dumb. Vertu uses real "crocodile" premium leather. Samsung uses "crocs... moreWOOW, are you serious man...no real leather in samsung??
You don't say! Of course I'm not dumb...I'm sarcastic
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2014soon, some fruit company will copy and claimed it as "innovation"exactly. Fruits are copy cats as usual always and then at the end claims happily with joy "WOW WEE WHAT AN INNOVATION!!!!".
I think I'd be left alone if i said it's ugly and unworthy :)
Unless you've used a vertu phone and lived with it, you don't really have knowledge to have your say about a product like this, it really is a prestigious phone and it oozes character, not can be said for all high end phones, the lamborghini phone for example, 2500 and while it looks nice it's simply a Moto G with a flashy case, this on the other hand is a different kettle of fish, it's built like a rock and uses only the very highest spec materials. Worth the money? Depends on how you spend your money and if 7k is something you'd spend on your phone.
Anonymous, 03 Jun 2014"....and a slew of exotic leather options." WOOOW...just the same as in SGS5, lool.Don't be dumb. Vertu uses real "crocodile" premium leather. Samsung uses "crocs"-type plastic faux leather.
MaxSmarties, 03 Jun 2014Ugly and overpricedAmen to that (spot on). This toy however is for people who can afford overpriced products and who think they are the best people around. In short, for egotistical, rich, attention-seeking maniacs.
"....and a slew of exotic leather options."
WOOOW...just the same as in SGS5, lool.
