First of all, we all know that the battery have a very short life. I mean you could buy a better battery that carries double the capacity like it did. I already put away the 2 battery that came with my phone.
I already had this phone for about a month now and never gave a problem since I upgraded the firmware.
Great phone, true class.
I've had it for a month now and it works fine. All the bad comments about this phone are from people who CANNOT afford this sexy sleek device!
It's like when you can't pull a gorgeous babe in a club and you start convincing yourself that she wasn't good enough anyway and that she must be a lesbian not to give you her number!
Bottom line, great phone that truely has a short battery life, but then it wasn't designed for using it for long calls in some train or tube!
The phone looks great and has a nice design, but that's about where it stops. The performance of the phone is very bad, especially the battery life. The talk time of this phone is about 2 hours. However, in poorer signal areas it's much less. Also the battery indicator is completely useless. You can go from full battery to half and then to nothing. You get not warning about low battery. The phone will show half battery left, but try to make a call, as soon as you connect, the phone will switch off. This phone is not recommended for heavy users. I use it for business and it not reliable at all.
the phone looks like very nice, but i am still very disappointed, even i got lasted firmware updated the phone still switched off automatically when i going to game or other other options on the menu. to be honest, this is replaced one, the previous one even worse than this one!!!
The new firmware 3.78 somehow is better but in reality doesn't solve the major problems of this phone.
Nokia produced a faulty,joke phone and that is Nokia 8800.
Hi Cme..How are you doing? Okay, i have the firmware version of 3.28 and i believe that its really old. I dont have any problems at all except yesterday, it switchs off by itself, only once. I was wondering if i could get the update of latest firmware if i bought the phone in UK then? Im currently staying in Canada. Can i just ask Nokia Canada to fix it? Do we have to show our proof of purchase of the phone? Thx for the help..
I believe you must ring Nokia customer services and ask for a latest Firmware if available.
I bought my 8800 today and i love the looks. But can some one please help me with this thing about the phone shutting off suddently. Do u think if i flash the phone it would be ok? or what else could i do?
Nowadays every phone in the market has 2 years warranty even if the phone is an ordinary,faulty,not worhy expensive phone like this one.Two years warranty are not enough and don't help this phone situation.
Hi. I just bought this phone. It looks awesome. However the keypad is not as good as some of the other nokia's and also it switches off everytime u go to the IM or instant message function.Well however the phone is overall ok.
i have had this phone for 2 months and am disappointed with it. The phone turns off each time i go into instant messager (IM) and also randomly turns off when i go into the other menu's such as call register, messages etc.
the main body of the phone looks great but what a disappointment............
what shall i do, I've already had one replacement from Voda?
n8800 is for people hu wants to be unique and distinctive.. yes i agree that some pipz hu posts their msgs here just depends on hearsay w/out justification mybe bec. they cnt "afford" it.. nokia wont give 2yr warranty on ths thing if not worth it..
I agree with the most negative reviews on this phone.Surely this phone has low battery life,functionality and performance.
As for the fanatics owners of this phone they should be real,see 8800 problems and not praise this phone without a reason to do so.
The time you said (2-3days) is a stand by time mate ;-) can't be 70-96 hours talk time in a single charge, isn't it???
I'm sure you need to improve ur reading skills, I said I've used my 6610i for 150+ hours in last one and half year as talk time NOT IN A 1/2/3 DAYS,
I got this phone 4 months ago after waiting and waiting for it to be released! It is an awesome phone, does everything you could possibly need to do on a real mobile and looks/feels better than any phone that has been released!!
Although, both batterys that you get with the phone last about 6 hours, on a standard days usage. Often, the battery indicator would drop from 5 bars to 1 to none, within the space of 60 seconds of a call.
I'm sorry, however much i like it and love the style, it is not reliable enough to use as a real 'mobile' phone should. I have had my network provider collect it today and exchange it for an N70.
To C Me
I am an owner of Nokia 6610i too.The battery of this phone goes maximum 3-4 days.That means 72 - 96 hours talktime not 150+ hours as you false stated.Even SE k750i doen't last so much.Maybe your phone is from another planet and yes the battery problem is a very significant issue for every phone,especially if this phone is an expensive one such as Nokia 8800.
For me 8800 weight is not such significant as other problems this phone has but because i mentioned that in my previous post i would like to sort it out.Nokia 8800 has stainless steel body case that's why is heavy.As for 8910 to 8800 weight issue 8910 is much lighter not only in grams but in the sense you have when you hold it and as i stated before 8910 is indeed light as a feather.I agree that Nokia 8910 is 110 g (battery included) but that doen't mean is heavy.This occurs to its construction made by titanium which is the most lightest,strongest and solid metal even from a steel.Titanium is the only metal with these characteristics.If you don't believe that grab a 8910 and 8800 and see the difference by yourself and then talk.
