A stylish & bulletproof phone.
The case is made out of Titanium and trimmed in hand stitched leather. The scratch resistant screen is made of sapphire crystal (the same that protect the movement of Rolex watches). The phone is heavy and sturdy.
This is a PHONE, not a toy for teenagers to tweet, facebook and web surf. It is for people who actually want to use an electronic device to TALK (what a novel idea!).
It does have web capabilities. But it lacks a lot of utility, as there is no GPS to allow for the use of mapping/directional applications. The web feature is for casual users.
The "layers" of the menus are not configured in any logical manner. Awkward to use and navigate.
There is no web page interface for users to configure their phone, email, contacts, etc., and download them to the phone.
The support & sync software is all formatted for PC's. They do not support MAC or Linux - a dumb move, as they easily could have just developed a browser based interface.
The memory is built in and it cannot be increased (no memory card).
The sim card is easily accessed for exchanging (international travelers).
This phone is not designed to be a disposable phone, rather it can be upgraded as technology improves.
A Version 1 to Version 3 update, cost me $1100. $300 was just for laser etching a new label inside of the phone!!
Accessories are only available through VERTU dealers, as the connection to the phone are proprietary (no generic charger available at WalMart!).
Their wall charges are poorly designed, as the cord has a twist cam lock into the voltage transformer. The cams are tiny little plastic pins that quickly get mashed & broken - there goes a $300 charger!
Batteries are 10X the going market rate, but smart owners quickly figure out that some Nokia batteries will fit.
This phone should last anyone a lifetime.
But, there was not a lot of thought placed into the ability to upgrade, navigate and interface with it.
VERTU shafts their owners at every turn with over priced accessories, limited web access, no after purchase support, and they lack easy interface menus.

VERTU dropped the ball on this one!

There is no compromise on quality, the lower middle classes or lower middle class wannabes aspire to own the iphone.
This phone is about style,quality and elegance, the type of phone this owner attracts is the kind of person who holidays abroad 4 times a year, drives a z4 bmw, owns his/her buisness.
The green eyed monster comes out when people cant afford this phone, what i say is do something about it, get a better paid job, invest your money, get out of your council house and make something of your lives, then who knows you too may be the owner of the best mobile phone in the world.
Ive recently purchased the vertu signature mobile from a friend of mine, i paid 6500 pounds, that may sound a lot but the phone is just 6months old and in mint condition, it currently retails at around 9500 pounds from several quality bond street shops.
The phone oozes style and quality and its made to the highest standard

I cannot believe that someone would purchase a phone like this. People on here who say they own this phone are backing it up with ridiculous excuses like "It saved me $3000 on a boat cruise" get f*cked, if you're booking a cruise that has a overhead cost over $3000+ then 1. You're some snooty million air, the $3000 you saved will probably be blown away on champagne lobsters or 2. You're an idiot and you would normally pay $10000 to go on a cruise. Other lame excuses like "It never breaks" and "The company replaces parts 3 years later!!", well you can send me $10000 for a nokia 6300 and I'll make it indestructible and give you a life time warranty, you can call me whenever you like and I'll send out a new battery free of charge. I hope that anyone who owns this phone gets mugged and sees it months later being used by their pool boy.

NICE PHONE!!! after 1/2 year of use, started searching for new case, something original. Found one store at Ebay, FerrellPro, they have nice cases and price don't bite.

Has anyone dealt with Luxmobiles.com? I have recently made a purchase from them of a replica Vertu Ascent. I got a phone that was not a 1:1 replica as they advertised, as a friend of mine has the real thing. They sent the phone without a battery and without a charger. It is totally worthless. They have not responded to my repeated emails. Looking for someone that has dealt with them and trying to figure out if it is a legitimate site.

I have bought the Vertu Signature, the Ascent, and the Ascent TI. I can honestly tell you that this phone is by FAR the best and most luxurious phone I have ever used. From the box to the phone itself....The Vertu Concierge is fabulous as well....I must warn you, though... The phone starts at $5,000.... for those who can afford it, it is absolutely fabulous!

> In reply to Alemnesch @ 2010-05-04 07:54 from 2G44 - click to readYou probably think that all the negative comments about the phone that you so dearly praise and charish are coming from people who in deep inside want one but can not afford it so the envy in them speaks. Haven't you throught 95% of people who post their opinion on this site want feature-packed phones and that gsm arena are all about performance and they made an exception with vertu. You think everyone wants a vertu? That just proves the arogance and snobism that looks to be the a common feature among the vertu owners. You are deluding yourself if you think vertu is a symbol of quality. It's a symbol of bad taste and snobism brought to extremes.

To all those who have an extremely biased view towards the exceptional Vertu, please do read on..
Vertu is a phone that is meant to fit a lifestyle.
People who want convenience in their lives, and can afford it, the Vertu is for them.
Vertu is not just a 'need', it is a also a want.
For everyone needs a phone in this day and age, but not everyone wants to put a price on convenience, and standard. The Vertu standard surpasses all, and for all those who have not had the pleasure of witnessing the Vertu in the flesh, please don't knock it down till you do..
As for all those people settling for replicas, well if cubic zirconias do it for you like diamonds do, then by all means, whatever makes you sleep at night.
I am not able to afford a Vertu at this present time, however I have owned one before, and just because I no longer have one doesn't mean I no longer love it.
Don't hate something you can't have folks.. Be more open minded, and aspire to own the best.. For you all deserve it, don't you ?
