for the money you would think they could design a phone that didnt look like it was made in 2000...
ithehappy, 26 Jun 2015Rich people like me will disagree with your comment. If you were rich you wouldn't be flaunting it in the comments sections of websites. Trust.
ithehappy, 26 Jun 2015The problem is a "mobile phone" doesn't need to be premium, I mean there is no craft... moreYeah.. nah, 14.5 thousand pounds for a phone.. very few people could afford that.
I mean they could take out a loan and put themselves into serious debt, but only a very small percentage could afford it outright.
The problem is a "mobile phone" doesn't need to be premium, I mean there is no craftsmanship here that one would buy an expensive phone like this. I don't believe that a lot of people can't buy this, heck even I can, but there is just no point!
Too bad out of my 28 supercar and super luxury cars collection, none of them was Bentley, as the brand always make me feel 2nd rated when compare to some of my Rolls Royce.
Pentel, 25 Jun 2015why don't you apply as designer for vertu? hope you could make up a great design :PI wish! And yes I could. I'm sure almost anyone could.
Mattt, 25 Jun 2015I wonder when/if Vertu will hire a design team? Nevermind the price tag, their phones are obje... moreWholeheartedly agree with you. I mean I get that they are supposed to showcase the material and such, but I'd expect a luxury phone to be a looker. Kind of like this one from about a year ago: http://m.gsmarena.com/the_gresso_azimuth_is_a_luxury_s40_dualsim_phone-news-8197.php
The good part of being a feature phone instead of having android is the peace of mind from hackers and viruses
MdN8, 25 Jun 2015Agreed. Also they never freeze, reboot, cry for updates or send your data to other countries, ... morethat device doesnt need it,it is made for one purpose calls,remeber that..since tghe first cell phone was manufactured ..companies have been adding new features cameras .mp3.videos.high res display,but only for catch more money than they could with single manufacture cell phone,now days the call feature is just an additional service to the mini computer
Taila, 25 Jun 2015I think this is a better phone than a smartphone for this price because it is never going out ... moreAgreed. Also they never freeze, reboot, cry for updates or send your data to other countries, and batteries last longer. Too bad this one doesn't at least have a camera.
Honestly it looks ugly, nothing luxurious about the styling, looks like a lady's handbag, and not the stylish kind either.
I think this is a better phone than a smartphone for this price because it is never going out of fashion and have old SoC and OS like the Vertu Touch. A feature phone can be used as long as it works and can last long if looked after well.
To the Author.......
The phone part itself is insignificant in the price. There is no surprise that it is more expensive despite being a feature phone
I'm not saying this because i can't afford it, but even if i could, i'd say that it's ugly! Pheew.
