I bought one in Kenya and I was wasn't (extremely dissapointed) impressed with the battery talk-time period. It performs much lower than 3hrs compared to my minimal talk time per day is 4-5hrs And mind you, to me, it was quite expensive for my expected utility,.
The battery has already failed (2009) and when I contacted the agent, surprisingly, they had no solution, while the battery cannot be sourced locally. no longer in production!
I have a 8910i series (which I bought in 2003) and its wonderful. The battery last SEVEN (5hrs talk-time) good days without charging. The spare battery has never been used since!
This is the kind of phone I would spend a fortune for! Anyone from Nokia who can promise me a similar
However, the design and size is the best I admired in the model. This was well researched I must compliment
I've used this cell Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte. I like it very much. now I am using this yet.its slide will never ever damage.its body is scrachless and good looking so dashing... i like it so much....

If you haven't owned this phone before....well DO NOT compare this with the Sony Xperia!!!!! It's like comparing an Omega Watch and a cheap and NASTY Casio watch from Argos!!!! Well true they both tell the time but two different worlds!!!! Different class!!! There are different horses for different courses!
yeah, i mean. this phone has no such specifications because of which it is so high priced. its like so-normal.

I had this carbon and also have seen the fake. U probably would know when you have seen both at the same time. Good luck dude.
The authentic carbon arte's are made in korea. There is no point in arguing with this. I bought it from nokia shop for 1250 euro's and its made in korea.
100% its true i asced in original nokia shop in Germany
Just to confirm with all you retards on here who seem to be arguing over someting so ridiculous.. This handset is manufactured in more than one different country.. It is so easy to tell a fake from an authentic one.. If your still unsure then the simple way to do it is email the IMEI number to Nokia and they will instantly tell you whether its fake or real.. SIMPLE!!!
