My conclusion is that the Sapphire Arte is definately classier & better looking than the Carbon Arte...I have both.
p.s. oh and the thing weights 150g so itís like caring a gun in your pocket
And where do you find a quality in this handset? I had one, sold three weeks later. Battery life is up to 3 hours and itís only for a first few charges, and then goes down to two hours NO JOKE! Itís like Corvette with no engine. Wakeup people! Charge it make one 5 min phone call and battery half used. Buy the phone, and your friend will know you by one, who canít talk, or any time can get disconnected.
Anonymous, 10 Nov 20084 gig of memory so what big deal thats pathetic cant save anything on it when its just startin... moreGeek, omg I can't save all my stuff on it, it's a phone. It does the job that a phone is suppost to do, this phone is about build quality not about geek gadgets simple as.
This phone is like the difference between a pair of Gucci shoes and Nike shoes.
The nike shoes may well be decent but they was made in some factory by people who don't give a shit because they get paid $5 a week.
These phones are hand made for top quality with the best materials around by the best craftsmen around. Hate all you want on the phone because it has a 3mp camera? so what buy a camera if you want a camera lol IT IS A PHONE, and storage? hmmm don't you own a iPod? 160GB storage right there, 4GB is more than enough for daily pictures etc.
Why Nokia never dare to give any feedback regarding the overheat issue of their phones? ... Guess they do not have a solution to the problem!
Overheat is a big issue with any Nokia phone ....8800 Arte is no exception!
It was gifted to me on my birthday. Love it. Such a lovely phone to have. I have selled my nokia N93i.
how to check on this phone how many megapixel?
and 3g ? thank you
nyok909, 13 Nov 2008Hey guys, a lot of sellers from ebay are now selling carbon arte for a cheaper price now (arou... moreIt's true that you can buy imitation 8800 Arte anywhere in China easily. The exterior look & feel is almost 100% like the real thing - e.g. the fake Sapphire Arte have genuine leather just like the real thing! Anyone can tell the difference between the real one & the fake one by just switching on the phone, cos the stuff inside are not the same.
Anyway, if anyone just care for the look, it's not a bad idea to have the imitation one for just around US$100.
Hey guys, a lot of sellers from ebay are now selling carbon arte for a cheaper price now (around $500 down). But almost all retail stores online are still selling this phone for like $1300 and up, what a big difference!
Will you guys buy something like this from ebay? Are there a lot of fake carbon roaming around ebay?
I don't want to get burned by sellers who sells fake items...
Pls share your experience guys...
chris glanville, 10 Nov 2008 hi i am looking for 8800 saphire art or carbon arte to replace the 8800 sirocco gold i broke ... moreThe carbon Arte is not as good a seller as the Sapphire Arte.
I have both & they are both of them are nice looking to me. The problem is that other then the look, the 8800 Arte is not such a good phone to use...the low quality & slow acting camera is almost useless & the phones have severe overheat problem (my mom also use a 8800 Arte & she complain of the same overheat issue)!
I'm also using a Motorola V9 & personally I think that it's a much better phone overall & the price I paid for it is less than 1/3 the price of the above mentioned 8800 Arte.
Btw, most of the time I only leave both of my 8800 Arte in my study room's drawer cos I really don't enjoy using them as my daily phone! ... mind you that majority of the time I use my phones mainly for conversation purpose & messages.

4 gig of memory so what big deal thats pathetic cant save anything on it when its just starting to get dark the camera is a joke these new 8800s are a total joke this time nokia went for our money not quality , they spit a bit of carbon on then call this phone carbon thats not legal and people are looking at taking nokia to court over it ,those who think they look good when they pull this phone out really look a pratt people dont think look at him or her they think what a pratt all fact gave my 8800 arte to my friend for free and he uses it has his second phone and he works on a building sight lol phones dropping in price now new it would not take long , will waite for next 8800 if its like this 1 will miss that 1 to worst 8800 ive ever bought boring , and i do believe nokia are already looking for a new 8800 to make already so even they know this time this handsett was a mistake to put in the 8800 name even this forum is slowing down now for this phone
I bought it last week and belive me, it worths almoust evry penny.... i'm saying almoust, because i still don'y know if it worths the 40% difference in price , instead of a gorgeous normal Nokia 8800 Arte (on black). Though, it looks asthonishing, it has 4GB of memory, voice clarity and maybe (not shure) the tap thing for the clock as extras...
Is may be good for a new 8800 series owner
but the existing 8800, sirocco, Arte..
is the same!
