you can't compare LOWER CLASS nokia phone with this 8 Series nokia 8800 MASTERPIECE.. too FAR!!
No one should compare this 8800 with the V3. This phone is in a totally much higher "CLASS"!!
My V3 is a crappy, lazy moving BIG phone......This 8800 is a delicate & precision tool!!
I have Nokia 6230.8800 It's not bad but.I thing That Nokia 6230i it's better choice.
Is this supose to be sold when a Motorola V3 is for sale in the shop in front? For those who can wait, the Motorola V1150 is for soon...
The best looking phone was the 8850. Shame that Nokia doesnt put in a color screen and GPRS
I suspect the guy below used to work for Nokia.....but then got fired!!!
i just want to now when i can get this product, becouse i am in mexico city?
hats off to Nokia ..well done ! what a great looking phone.
i am due an upgrade in 2 months time and this phone has shot straight to the top of my list.
a note to all the people moaning about a supposed 'lack of features", get a grip,it has everything you could want|: bluetooth(a lack of this stopped me buying its predesor) , video record and playback and a camera. granted it hasnt the largest amount of megapixels etc,or a huge memory but who really cares..the fact is that it does all the basics with a few luxurys thrown in too. i dont need my phone to have mp3,as i have an i-pod. i dont need a portable computer-i have my laptop.i dont need amazing quality photos or video-i have my digital camera....what i need is a sylish, well built, EXCLUSIVE mobile phone which will make the right impression in the business world....this phone is pitched at just the right level for us customers who will actually be buying the phone , as opposed to just talking about it and picking faults in forums such as this !
Can someone tell why the battery is 600 mAh only? The standby & talk time seem short compare to other Nokia phones!
Cool Slide. The slider is equipped with an automatic finishing mechanism clicking when closed.
i hate this ugly heavy phone this is not better than motorola v3 coz v3 is light in weight looks good stylish but one bad thing about v3 is camera is vga but phones is for calling , sms , mms , not for taking pictures , if u want take pics so buy camera hahahahahah bye please tell me v3 is better or nokia 6680 bye tell me other wise i will give u a pedigree .
The phone follows the 8910 which I bought because it was "titanium tough" and for the style. I gave up several important telephone features, however. Amongst these were : tri-band, speakerphone, decent internal memory, a backlit keyboard. While the titanium was tough on the 8910, the slide mechanism has given out after only 2 years. This is why I am hunting for a new phone. Nokia's non-candy bar phones are of such poor design that I considered going back to motorola, a brand I had previously thought to abandon forever because of their memo system.
Nokia, how hard can it be to come up with a flip phone that is solid? If you took the 8800, and substituted the slide for a strong flip cover over the keypad you'd have a great flip phone to add to the weak line-up non-candybar models. You could eliminate some size and weight as well.
The 8800 is a great addition to Nokia's weak model lineup. Some of the telephone features lacking in the 8910 are present in the 8800/8801, however, I wonder if the sliding mechanism has been made stronger. Also, voice dialing and a backlit keypad are basic phone features which would add more value than a camera. The phone is heavier that any of the phones with which I compared it (motorola, samsung, other nokias).
With this model Nokia has made great progress in the top of its line, but it still lacks a robust flip phone. In a sense, it has exceeded my expectations without meeting them.
Dissappointed in Denver.
Best looking phone ever...... have had all of the 88 series phones and defo will be getting this one... cant wait.
This phone is fantastic! Infact,it is the best nokia phone I've ever read about.But there's one reason why I've resolved ne'er to use any nokia phone.......becos it has no timer.
