guys,if your after a phone with everything on it,go for the nokia 6230i.if you want a phone that makes you look and feel like a celebrity and have a few more hundred euro than the average person,buy the 8800.this is actually a really gud phone and DOES have camera behind the slide,and in my opinion,its the best looking phone ever made.
Despite of all the phones they created so far, this phone still remains the very best looking phone and for crying out loud this phone has camera! It is located behind the upper face of the phone when you slide the phone up. I think
you are just a great pretender having guts to posting false info. here. Get a life and stop pretending that you know anything when it comes to cell phones.
Nokia 8800 is still the mobile phone of the year! Buy your self a magazine and read!
This phone realy baffles me. No camera!!! its trapped in a time warp. So pricey but yet so crap. Shame realy, cos its a good looking phone.
Ive been rubbing my hands to give everyone my opinion of this phone . Perhaps if you had more money than sence you could justify buying this . Yes it does have a buetiful shiny stainless steel finish , but for about $50 dollars I can recomment some decent toasters that would give you the same thing . You will however pay a premium price for this handpiece and if you are so vain that you must pay this amount to feel elite then so be it . The 8800 does not have any features that you could not find on a phone a quarter of the price .
Ok.. I need to know how to make my phone vibrates when receiving calls. Yes, I've check ON on my Profile.
also, on my first charge, I've so far used 24 mins this morning and batt is still full.
My old razor batt will last me just one day with the use of bluetooth on my car.
I'll update more info on the latest version when I start using this phone with bluetooth to see how long the batt will last.
It feels go to go back to a simple phone. MY razor was really good. It's still working strong after 1.5 year without any problem.
I like both phone so I don't think I want to do any comparison just yet.
the camera queality is about the same and I think the nokia is a bit clear. maybe because it's new meaning the lense is clean.
Helo friends, with this phone occurs the same that with watches, if you want one with a lot of functions, you buy a 'Casio' but if you want something special, you buy a 'Rolex' that will give you the time and the date. period.
Evo, My best advise for you, is to take your phone to a Nokia Care Center, it is possible that the battery is worn out and need a replacement. By the way, desktop chargers for models 8800 and 8801 are the same, the only difference between the phones is the frecuency of operation. Regards.
I've set the vibration ON but when calls come in the phone doesn't vibrate. Am I not setting it correctly?
why so expensive? no function whatsoeve lah?
status symbol? ajah!
is the phone stand charger the same for both 8800 and 8801?
My cousin is coming from asia and I think they sell the charger there cheaper than here... Just wondering if they work.
thnx celtic. i do charge it ova night an then i stil find myself chargin it like 4 times a day. it really irratin. i've got de orginal charger. so the prob is def wit de battery an not de phone?
wow this is a piece of junk!! whats the price
what does it have.. wow works so well doesnt it? maybe cuz its so basic like phones from 4 years ago that it wont crash. has no reason to
this is a great phone if its 2003
Hi Evo, It is not normal that the battery drains that fast, perhaps you are not using the appropiate charger, look for the original and recomended by the manufacturer. Other option is to let it charge overnight before buying a new battery, they are expensive. Under normal use a bettry should last about two or three days. Don't forget to turn off the bluetooth option.
I jus got my 8800 but second hand. it a stunning phone. my only prob is that the batt is pathetic. i full charge it an after 2 phone calls no longer than 2 min the batt low warning comes up. is this a prob wit the phone or if i buy a new batt will it fix de prob. pls help thanks
I've hand the nokia 8800 for a month now and I am very pleased with it. The so much criticised battery lasts for 2 days on normal use (phone calls, text messages) without any problems and the charging time is quite short. I haven't encountered the problem of the phone switching off when there were 2 more battery lines left, and I've used it to the last line without any problems.
I read posts from people complaining about the sound quality on their handset, but I've had no such problems with mine, on the contrary, I can say that the sound is loud and cristal clear, significantly better than with other phones I've had in the past.
The signal is very good and without fluctuations. I have a signal on my phone even in remote places where other phones don't work.
Also, the sliding mechanism works flawlessly.
Indeed, the camera on this phone is modest, but to me that's not such a big inconvenient as I don't use it anyway.
One can argue that the phone lacks certain features other phones have, at a lower price. On the other hand, if the user didn't buy it to use it as a camera or mp3 player, I think there is nothing to complain about on this phone. It works excellently.
All in all I'm very happy with this phone. I think the elegant design and stainless steel cover set it apart and on the quality of its functions is undisputable.
i cannot believe my good fortune to find one just lying around when i went to the park to walk my boss' dog. who could anyone be so careless as to lose a jewel like this? i just ignored the calls then changed the sim, voila, i have a new mobile with the status that comes with it. now i stand tall and proud, people stare whenever i take it out to sms or call. unfortunately, i still don't have a girlfriend. but who cares? people now respect me, hah!
The phone has really poor battery life. I am on my second one due to a fault where they turn themselves off mid call. The retailer said he has replaced a few with the same problem. The software upgrade does not fix these problems.
i have had my phone since january and it has never crashed, never dropped a call,rarely loses its signal and still makes me feel good everytime i take it out of my pocket ,open the slider and hear the metallic 'snap' as it opens.
there are a couple of light scratches on the body that can be polished out,however the scratch resistant glass screen has stayed just as new. (i started out with a screen protector on it for 2 months before i realised i just didnt need it and it spoiled the effect of the glass screen).
to sum up - awesome phone !
