a very nice looking phone. a bit heavy though. However does not support half rate.
for all u ppl who talk abt memory slot, 2mp camera, no 3G blaa blaa blaa...THIS PHONE IS NOT FOR U!!! get over it for god sake!!!
ppl who buy this phone dont care abt the features as long as they can call and send text msgs..its not made for kids who listen to music or paly games on their handset 24/7!!!....its made for higher class ppl..its not for kids!!...if u want a good camera and expamdable memory just a N95!!!
this phone is only for showing off
as one of the guys said, think abt it this way a G-shock or a Rolex?! do kids buy rolex?!!..if kids start buying rolex then it wont be a casio not a ROLEX lol
its not made for everyone to have it...its only made for afew ppl...only higher class ppl...thats what makes it exclusive!!
i dont like seeing a kid having the same phone as mee!!
i had 8800 and i just bought my 8600 3 days ago...its gorhious, stylish and classy...its simply a head turnover
I LOVE IT!!!....i prefer it over my 8800 cuz it has better battery life....NICER and bigger screen....really nice buttons compared to 8800...nice themes...usb cable...but seriously props on keypad and battery life...they improved bigvtime!!
the only thing i prefer in 8800 is the cut
for all of u ppl who say its rubber!!...ITS NOT!!...the back is stainless steel and front if definately glass
u think its heavy?!! c'mon!! get a life!! afew grams does really make a difference?!!!!...if u think its heavy its becuz its made of good materials and not cheap **s rubber!!
u dont like it?!! dont complain!! get another phone!!
plz think twice next time b4 posting wrong information (rubber back? wtf?!!) and stupid comments!!
It's just a premium class one-for showing and calling! What else ? Vertu also doesn't have extended memory but costs from 3500euro and...! Very nice phone!
This mobile phone will be a turnover between old 8800 and a new style of this hybrid monocromaic phones. I believe it will cost around 600€.
i have this phone for 2 weeks now,what can i say - its a 6300 in a new body,that is all to it and for that price - go with n95 or Sirocco or better yet wait for n82.nokia is wierd with prices,8600's top price should be $500 and not a buck more
The nokia have the best MOBILE PHONES in the whole world and it is so recomonded.
Know what you mean about "the disease", Ive had about 80 phones over the past..6 years? all of which were high-end phones [with exception of those Trium ones...:P]
currently got the sirocco,great phone, turns heads and gets the odd jelous glance, but thats the whole fun of having it!
Luna looks pretty cool, stil prefer the design of the sirocco though, but if you have 8800,8800s,8600 people know you got class [and a little too much spare change..lol],all because 9/10 ppl either think its too much or just cant afford it!
the front cover for keypad what kind of material? specs says smoked glass, is it really glass or some kind of plastic? reply please.. thanks
The phone does exactly what it says on the tin. Its stylish and its a practical phone. No, the features of sat nav, high def camera and office sync may not be there; you know why? Cause this is a mans phone not a boys toy full of gimmicks and gadgets. The battery is not perfect either but is whats to be expected for such a robust and heavy phone, its also a massive improvement on the sirroco. Win win situation with this phone, a triumph for nokia at long last!!!!
Mine arrived today! It's really beautiful and the camera (although lacking a light/flash) is actually quite good despite the negative thoughts & comments from some members of this forum.
i got it just now is soooo cool i like it alot i think ill get another one also=)
Just got the phone WOW! Beautiful..feels like a $1000bucks.. only think i didn't like is the Charger feels weak,like it's gonna break off.But if your planning on gettting one Two Thumbs UP!.
Sam : I have no doubt that the phone works anywhere on earth!!! Other wise, the marketing focus group would be pretty limited. What I meant by a good functional phoone is the additional function on its phone. Dahhhh!!!
Totally agree with you there -I owned a Nokia N95 up until last week (when I jumped in the sea with it in my pocket whilst messing around on my speed boat!) In some ways I miss it, but it was just a toy. I'd be the first to admit I'm a fone-geek, but I, and two other friends, just weren't making use of the features. I've now come to the conclusion (after maybe 10 handsets in the last 18 months) that as long is it does the basics well and the build quality is there (perhaps throw in a bit of exclusivity), you're on to a winner. I do miss wifi but then again I only ever used to play on that in bed, right after I'd just turned my desktop off because I couldn't be bothered to sit at my chair any longer! My 8600 should be arriving in the post today & I can't wait -perhaps now I'll be able to go straight to sleep after I switch my PC off at night?!!
40? that's all !!! try 220 phones! I can name all of them if you like...!! now thats horrible!
I've had the phone for 2 days now- its absolutely PERFECT! Great build quality, excellent screen/buttons/feel, incredibly elegant- I cant imagine why anyone wouldnt want to own one.
I have had 40+ phones over the past 4 years or so (its a disease i know) but I've reached the following conclusion- while Nokia might not necessarily be the best phone makers in the market, they sure as heck do a great job on their limited editions etc.
Regarding this phone features, right before it i had a N95 for 2 weeks- its a toy for heaven's sake. I felt like I was back in school, moving around with a flimsy plastic phone with everything but a kitchen sink. Personally fellas, if the phone has bluetooth, decent ringtone capabilities, crystal clear talk/reception and a robust user interface thats probably all you'll ever need. Add to that something as elegant/smart- why would anyone want more?
For all the enthusiasts that are into features/functions, you must admit, the 5.0 MP camera of the N95 is not like a normal digital camera's 5.0 MP, and wifi its neat, but not necessary. You really dont need internet access at your fingertips at all times.. =))
I recommend everyone buying this phone, trust me its worth it =))
