this whole 'dead pixel' business is rubbish... my phone is 12 months old and i use the power saver mode with the clock showing and i dont have any dead pixels, neither do i have any 'ghost images' of the clock display when i use the phone again. dont worry- i know 5 people with this phone also and they dont have these problems either.
if you really dont want the power saver mode then just turn it off- very simple
go to settings, then to 'display' , scroll down to power saver option and turn it off.
ps - 12 months on and i still love this phone. lots of scratches and battle scars now, but it just adds to the character of the phone!
Perhaps you haven't noted yet, but this phone is so well built that Nokia covers it with a TWO years guarantee and a piority customer service. This means that this model was built to last.
What is the EFR code for this phone? the normal *3370# doesn't work
also, I'm fearing the dead pixel syndrome, the power save mode doesn't have the time bar move ... *scared* how do I fix please before it strikes!
All these comments are insane.
Look, if you want to take photo's, buy a camera.
If you want to listen to tunes, buy an ipod.
Everyone needs to rmember that this is a PHONE, which is used to talk to people.
People who slate this phone are just bitchin about it because they cant afford one, also those of you who have brought one and are then moaning about the spec........ well you should have checked it out on this site before you parted with your hard earned cash.
This is a great phone!
I have got my few days. Is crab with features, but i used it as speare phone because of good look.
I purchased my 8800 that comes with an extra battery. Having used several models of nokia, I wonder why the extra battery should be needed.After a day's use, I concluded I have to carry the quick charger as well for I am a heavy user not just for sending texts but for calling as well. I have charged a total of 3 times during the day to be able to call and receive call as well. Nokia should come up with a better battery life. Not to mention the display and the tones that came with it, this nokia model "is not worth it."
The phone is all about looks. It is heavy to carry too. The software sucks for the money spent.
The ringtones are weird. The camera is only .5 pixels. The phone sucks for what you pay for it. The wallpapers don't work.
Save your money. Very dissapointed with it.
i owned this 8800 for a year + and i love it but i think nokia should design better battery. it's just plain cute and stylish !!!!!!!!!!!
WHAT??? N92 and N90???? NO, they're huge, yes, functions functions yes but as a phone, what's the point. Why don't you just carry a laptop. 8800 is exquisite. It's for the looks. Class and style. If you're rich enough to get an Aston, you can get this to bling your way.
Folx what happens when the LCD burns? dead pixels or stripes on the screen?? I use blank pic as screensaver , today I noticed a dead pixel... whats the deal?
It is a very bad mobile because it doesn't have card slot or software like the old nokia phones. THE only advantage in it that its alluminium. I have N93 and N91 and they are the best mobiles ever. I think that every one must have them.
BYE BYE 8800...MAKE WAY FOR THE NEW NOKIA 8800 SCIROCCO!!!..key pad lieka fone not a keyring......look at for it at the carfone warehouse! sorri i forgot to add it has a 2megapixel camera aswell and comes witha free bottle of bubbly!!!
guys, i have a nokia 8800 black, its a clearance phone, so does not come with the stand, may I know the original stand, is it black in colour or the silver normal type. thanks.
"It's all about image" How sad :D
You buy a phone because it has features that you will use on it, and because you like the design of it...f*ck what everyone else thinks!
I drive a porsche cayman because I like it, not because I think it makes me look cool!
Don't try to be what you're not.
