Simply stunning phone, just got it today and its amazing. Better than i could have hoped for, yes its expensive but lets hope it stays that way and exclusive.
After a long wait to get the Nokia 8800 – bought it online the first day it was in the UK. A couple of points which may help somebody considering the 8800.
It looks good but- the key pad is really small – as in really small you can hardly push the * button in actual fact all buttons at the bottom of the phone are hard to access unless you have super small fingers.
The navigation key is just the same and you spend most of your time correcting the error you made by pushing the incorrect key.
The display is really cool and the resolution is great – the camera is also really good for a SVGA camera.
The ring tones which are meant to be a selling point are really mediocre and make more noise than anything else.
The software is exactly the same as the Nokia 6230i so no real advance on that side.
It is also pretty heavy. It does not have infrared as indicated on the previous page.
All in all the phone looks good but that is it! You will be heavily disappointed if you haven’t seen or used it before my suggestion would be don’t get it from the pictures.
There are a lot of better phones out there.
But at the end of the day it is up to you.
Hope this helps.
this phone has its great design and all but the only thing that bothers me so bad is that why didn't the nokia company put some 1.3 mega pixels camera in this fone? if there will be a version of this fone that will have a megapixel camera in it, for sure i'll buy one.
Seriously if u want fuction go for the 6680.For me i like the design of the 8800 tats why i got it but i kinda regret cos the function sucks sad to say. So if u're a smartphone user u'll tend to miss having all the fuction
Hi everyone, I am now holding 7610 a smart fone but i wish to buy the 8800 now i m not sure bout it. Can anyone advise if your already holding the 8800 tell me if i should change or not does anyone also have an idea bout which to buy 6680 or 8800. So i can make ther rite decision.
I've had the phone for about 12 days now .. the phone looks amaizing and its perfect for business use bc its not loaded with the crap that comes withe the smart phones. the only problem i am facing is the battary .. its too small and it bearly last through the day.. i know it comes with 2 battaries but did nokia think i am gonna carry the 2nd battary with the phone in the same pocket so they made the screen scratch resistance? is anyone facing this problem with the battary?
i agree with tek. Anyone having problems with the bluetooth? Theere seems to be some problem
Its a show stopper, unique design, good but not great features. Some people pay $500 dollars for a pair of jeans now days. For those that can buy it, buy it. Keep saving, keep wishing you had it.
I have purchased the 8800 phone but having problem with Voice. When I make a call, the other party can hear me clearly but I cannot hear the voice clearly, it is very feable. I could not locate the menu option for increasing the volume nor any help from the User guide.
My call to Nokia Customer Care is of no use .. they do not even understand the problem.
the best similarity with this phone is : A FERRARI WITH THE ENGINE OF A WOLKSVAGEN GOLF DIESEL - very very nice exterior - i like it better than the vertu ascent or signature models- but in the interior it's a nightmare. it's like those nicely wraped Barbie dolls that my little girl asks for in a store - vevry very nicely packed but insight no more than a poor rubber doll with the concept of 20 century toys, same is this phone - i went to a store in my town, with the money in my hand and a big stupid smile on my face , eager to clain the latest toy. when i turned the phone on it's like a nokia 6100 with a poor camera, nothing more, nothing sensational, nothing to make me say - wow! at last i have found you my little precious (that Lord-of-the-rings-like sentence). so i sayed ''no, thank you!!!''. if you want to make a nice impression, buy a nice car, have a nice girlfriend or two. botton line - A FERRARI WITH THE ENGINE OF A GOLF.
Nokia sent out an email to its Australian clients on Jun 21st say the phone was in store now. But according to Nokia Careline the phone hasn't been released. Nokia has no idea when - so why send out that email ???
Nokia get your act together or you have lost a customer !
Not worth to own it-over price, too expensive and I can buy almost three sets of 6230i but 6230i is three times better this 8800.
Nice to see but most of the time we put the phone in the pocket or pouch. No point pay so much for a phone that not practical.
Go for the best and the very best-Nokia 6230i. I never seen any phoone today can beat the ultimate 6230i and maybe not at all.
I have tried many times convincing myself to try other brand top models but in the end still go back to 6230 initially and now 6230i. WORLD BEST! SALUTE TO NOKIA THAT MAKE SUCH A PERFECT PHONE IN THE WORLD.
i think my father will like this.It has scratch resistance glass perfect for putting in his pocket or in a pouch. I really1000000000000x like this phone hope i'll find it.
How come everytime I send an operator logo to the phone the sending fails? This has never happened before on any other Nokia phone I've had ... Is there a certain restriction on this one for some reason? Thanks ...
A business associate send me a 8800 as a present the day before; I used it for a day but I do not like it ... Namely:- lousy features, sound & speaker sound no good & too quiet, the keypad too small & hence difficult to press(especially the #0*), too heavy & the finishing or manufacturing standard is low !!!
Conclusion :- really quite a piece of rubbish !!!
Hey just got this phone today well bling nling it has it flaws when it comes to features but makes it for it in style def attracts alot of attention .............
How do you activate the voice commands for the radio while you're listening to it? I saved some commands for the radio such as 'on', 'off', 'previous channel' and 'next channel', but when I'm actually on the radio there is no option for activating those commands ... Does anyone know how to do it?
Thanks in advance ...

steel better than this it can't get
i just got this phone. Kinda disappointed. The phone shakes while pressing the key. Overall this is a very nice phone but the features are of a normal phone. Well we're paying for the design for this phone
