well..the screen isn't very scrath resistant as advertised, but the build quality is impressive, same is the box of the phone, battery - it lasts one day, good metal feeling into the hand, here in romania every one has one (the silver colour), never seen the black one, seen the gold one (terrible gipsy-like look), worth about maximum 400 euros to pay for one, not 650 as is now the price, i won't sell it because i like it. i;ll replace it only with the next 8 series or with a entry level vertu (if released as i read on one post in here).
classic handset i m just waiting for its price to go down but even though it beat all its category........its pride n prestiguos
very veryyyy poor and important deficency
I got this phone last month. It's just a piece of art. And it's certainly not for everyone. But what I love most is reading the posts from those they hate it cause they can't reach it.
This phone is wicked! Mine has no problem at all. Better than any other phones, indeed! Trully recommended for all!!!!
This phone is truly a nightmare. I purchased two – one for my wife and one for myself being that we are guilty of foregoing content over style. Boy – what a mistake! Mine has been replaced 3 times and I have now given up completely on the 8800 and opted for something more reliable and stable (and free). My wife’s has been replaced twice and were it not for her higher tolerance levels for glitches in the firmware, would have been exchanged again by now. In total between us we have had FIVE 8800’s over the last 3 months
We have experienced the following:
• Phone ‘reboots’ itself without reason during calls and whilst creating texts
• Sliding cover fails after about 2 months
• Battery life is short and the level indicator has no bearing on reality
When speaking to customer services having received my 3rd faulty phone I was advised by the representative that the 8800’s are indeed a nightmare and was advised to not bother replacing but exchanging for something else. Yes, that’s correct the service provided actually recommended a full refund over another 8800 replacement!
The Nokia 8800 is a top end phone (price wise). It’s difficult to spend this kind of money on a functionally limited phone where style is the selling point unless, you want to go into the crazy realms of Vertu.
I cannot believe Nokia have released a top end phone like this that is so compromised – did they actually test it do they have any quality control ?
I recommend staying well clear of this phone. It may look cool and engineered but, it is far from a relaxing thing to own.
fu-k nokia better make iit cheaper.otherwise this will be left as a brick in middle east..i wish they were ;istining to me
My boifreind has gat this fone..n now we are fighting to get me one......This phone is absolutely FAB and CLAASY!

I just bought this phone few days ago and i am already in love with it. Very easy to use. Looks great,feels good. This phone is for a man who respects style and quality.
Best phone which was ever made by Nokia
Wow!! received the phone last week. Superb battery life. Dont trust those haters who say that the battery life sucks. It is NOT. Mine holds for about a week and it is totally awesome. I always put it inside my pocket with keys and coins and has no scratch at all! Simply awesome phone!! Great receiver and sexy looking. Recommended for all!!!
this phone is amazing i have had it 20 mins and im loving it sooooooooo much the shell is scratched all ready
the phone is basic vga camera which is rubbish and the worst phone ever made by man
No doubt Nikia 8800 is a amazing cell fone and no need to campare to other cell fones thats y i m useing this,
but still im facing a major problem wid this set and that is battry timing really i m tired now, u knw i have to take a spare batt wid me all the time coz first batt works till 2 or 3 pm and onward i put my second batt for my conviniance and dnt miss any chance to charge wen i get any , but still i love this set ,NOKIA 8800 ur the best
Just got this fone.
Not only just having a pro look, also has the pro tools.
Who needs a megapixel phone. Why not just get a camera. fourth the price.
It fits easily in my suit jacket or on the back side of my jeans. And bcoz of the diamond cut screen and the steel body not worried abt any scratches. Get alot of stains,
Every beautiful thing is this world in sensitive ;)
Get this baby. If u are stylish. Bcoz fashion repeats but style never dies
Super awesome phone. Great battery life! Mine holds up to 5 days. I text and make phone calls a lot. What a fantastic feature. Do not need fancy 2Mp camera and Mp3 players, those are rubbish. Greatest phone ever!!
8800 is a great looking & durable phone. Some build-in features are exclusive to this phone only. Still love it after using it for almost a year..........
really rubbish phone just basic.i had to sell it off to a novice who didn't know much bout it and bought myself the classic nokia 8910i,which commands more respect and class wherever you go.trust me every body thats seen it asked were to get one.really awesome phone.will buy it again i mean the 8910i *****
