To Ben 2006-05-30 15:05 RNFL ,
You can buy & use the other cheap phones, cheap cars etc. This phone is definately not for you!
Thankyou for your Austrilian comment which made me understand the mentality of your people!
Over priced or not really depend on who you are talking to!!!
I am wealthy enough, so to me the price of this phone is cheap!
To the normal people who is jealous of the wealthy who own this phone........too bad!
Anyway, this phone "powerful" is made for the rich & famous!!! It does not suit & not meant for the cheap people!!!
Ive had this phone for about 4 months now it is i can say the MOST beautiful phone in the world before this i had the k750i and the samsung t809 abd the pebl but this phone is much superior to the rest. The only problems ive had is that the battery life is too short at least for me cuz i talk a lot and my reception isnt very good which might be bc of t mobile and i can say the phone is not over priced at all and its a beauty. If your a phone freak like me its a must have
Exactly cMe! Anyway, how u doin? Still rockin with your 8800? hehehhe, same here.
The Nokia 8800 is all hype, i've had this handset and I handed it back within the 14 days.
The worst handset ever
first of all phone sales people can definitely afford it in australia telstra pays very well just maybe not where ur from , secondly this phone is extremely overated it has a good design but its price is pathetic you can get something a lot better for a quarter of the cost.
It may be the case that expensive cars are ni8cer but not with phones in this case im afraid
just wanted to point out this phone is like all in the same line before it (8850, 8910 etc), it is a quality phone with all the features a grown up mature (business?)person could want, as previous models show no matter what the price is many wont mind paying it to not look silly with a out of date phone 2 months after buying it, on that basis nokia are doing it all right with this phone as with all the ones before it, one thing guaranteed - people will still want to buy this in another 6 or 12 months due to the style and "charisma" of this timeless phone long after other models from competitors have come and gone just like the 8910i an so on.
I Agree with Lucus
There's definately no reason why the 8800 should be expensive because it's quite basic and it's been going for over a year now.
Nokia really need to start thinking and designing a new version of this handset and make dramatic improvements.
Nokia seem to be bringing different colours out and getting logo's on them and overcharging our customers.
That's why Nokia are always going to get negative feedbacks, for those who have the handset and are happy it's a good thing but me personally i've had the handset and wasn't happy with it after seeing other handsets out there which beat it.
I got mine on a free upgrade but wasn't happy with the little buttons as i've got big fingers.
Maybe this was designed for the Women.
People might have more respect for Nokia if they brought the price down for the handset and stop been tight especially if the handset isn't worth the price they are charging.
Nokia are running out of ideas.
Look at LG, they have brought a excellent phone out at a good price, Nokia needs to start adding new ideas like LG.
Nokia 8800 is for those with little fingers, it's hard to text but if your a lady go get the phone, or if you want to have the ladies phone go ahead
It's still overpriced and the new LG Chocolate phone makes the 8800 look like a crap phone
Lol you guys hate it so much dont buy it i have mines i love it you guy not getting make me feel better knowing not much other like myself seeing people with the same phone over and over.
Only those people who never actually own this phone will comment the 8800 over priced.
Even mobile phone salesman want to own it after a year of selling this phone & facing it for 10 hours per day (just that those phone salesman cannot afford to spend half of their monthly salary on a phone).
there is no reason at all that this phone should be so expensive. the phone itself is gorgeous but it doesnt do anything, its feautures are so basic. its a beautiful but extremely over priced phone
Had this phone about 3 weeks now, and am STILL liking it. NO problems at all with it.... had read some bad reports, but because of its beauty was prepared to take the risk, and havent looked back. Not as advanced features as my last phone (and that was only the 6680!) but dont use many features.... i use a phone to call and text, i wouldnt use a mobile to get a good photo (I have a digital SLR for that) and i dont use it as an MP3 player, so it does MORE than i need! The whole build quality and style of this phone is pure, its sleek and its timeless.
Apart from it's good look; overall, this is still the best phone around that money can buy!
I have some Nokia 8800 for sale.All are brand new and very cheap.

Hi, Just want to know if anyone here with the black 8800 comes with the black charger? cause my german friend got me a black 8800 from germany and it comes with a black charger but the little part on the phone where you put your ear to when you talk is silver on mine, but black in some online photos......
Anyone knows why?
evrybody here probly only hates the 8800 because your model broke and now your looking for a new phone, meanwhile ppl with working models are happy and not here looking for anew one.
i have one and it works fine, and i do keep it in the pouch to protect it.....
if you the kind of person that has unique expensive taste, you like slide phones, your not fussed about megapixels and you use your phone to (heaven forbid) make phone calls!
do yourself a favour and buy this phone...as soon as you take it out the box youll know this is the phone for you
Have this phone for 6 months now. Never bored with it. The look is so sexy. I've had W800 and D600 before, with so many other phones, but they can't make me stay for more than a month. But this phone never bored me! Just Love it!!
Phone is EXpensive and the battery life is poor. How can a £500 phone have a worser battery life that a say £100 phone. I have had this for 3 weeks now and its kinda growing on me. I keep it in the pouch and even without that the marks aren't that bad unles u constantly staring at the phone up close like a weirdo. ITS A BORING PHONE but thats why i bought it so step off people. Its a good phone, features are a bit poor, but it will last and the style will continue to live.
