NOKIA 8800 is our best seller from the expensive mobiles in Soundtech Cyprus. For those of us, who started with Nokia 8810, 8850, 8910 of course we will end up to the Nokia 8800 independent of price.
People who like the design, they may NOT think as they make decision with the HEART!! You can buy 3 Motorola V3 instead of 1 NOKIA 8800. Does it worth the money? For us who like NOKIA design YES!!
As we sold more than 200 NOKIA 8800 in Cyprus, we know that they had MANY SOFTWARE problems initially. A few of those VERY frustrating due to the re-starts but you do NOT buy a Ferrari and expect it to behave like a TOYOTA Supra!!
Its not worth the money, there are alot better phones on the market than this for very many reasons. If you want a shiny metal box though fine! Take the high tariff deal you'll need to get one.
"Excellent, it's really a phone.
Why do you look for a phone with camera which is 2M max on the market? A Sony Cybershot 5M is still small.
Why do you look for music phone? A PM3 player 512Mb is still too small.
If you can pay for this phone. It is your CLASS in thousands of other phones."
I loooooove the design, but the functions disappoint me, and its way too expensive!
don't buy this phone!
Thje battery life sucks, the software sucks (sometimes the phone just turn off when he wants to), its very expensive, and also hard to get.
We sell phones for a living, and this is by the far the most dissapointing waste of time! functually the phone is really poor, but yea it looks pretty, speaking for myself id hate to have a phone that did nothing, thats why i have the SE K750i. The 8800 is a lawnmower engine in an elise shell! I would definatly not recommend this highly expensive phone as it would be a complete waste of money. Incase you havent realised, im not a fan.
Had the phone for 2 months and have now gone back to the 8910i as the 8800 was starting to give me headaches and i mean actual physical headaches.
Battery life is also non existent . i suppose the replacement batteries are terribly expensive
I had an 8910i before this and it was a gem...the 8800 is by far the worse phone I have ever had...looks the part and thats it..battery life is terrible (guess that's why they give you a spare, memory capacity "£$%^&*(...I am trying to persuade my wife to give me my 8910i back..DONT BUY AN 8800
i have just got this phone on an upgrade, previously i had the 6230. to be honest i was disappointed with the 8800, it does look the part, however the battery didnt last a full day without needing a charge and the functions are no better than my 6230. def not worth the rrp!
Yes... that maybe so, but which would you rather the girls see u with? a Ferrari or a Fiat? :)
Pls. don't compare the Samsung D600 with the Nokia 8800........because the 8800 is just a Fiat in Ferrari clothing!!!
Peasenly i get the d600 over that becouse some of the stuff on that phone botherd me so i just desided to go with d600 samsung like it a bit more plus its coming to fido soon and every one well have it with 2 year contract d600 no one has it yet only impots stores
yes, there is lock code and fixed dialing features just like any other nokia phones in it. Cheers..
Can any one tell me, if the 8800 has Lock Code (security feature) and Fixed dialing options in it?
the most beautiful on the market for now , only " minus " is price but I spent that money with pleasure
I've had this phone for a few months now, but for the past two weeks, it switches itself off, does any know if this is common problem, or why it does this?
i just got the phone, and i'm loving it. i have never had a phone this functional before. it's just great....i can't say enough of good things about it, anyways, for those who want to buy it, go for it.....u won't be dissapointed!
m8 to get maximum battery life DON'T over charge the battery. it slowly kills it. when the battery becomes full, the charger is still trying to pump power into it and the battery overheats and shortens the battery life span. my advise is, charge the battery until it's full, turn it off and when you need to swap them, put the empty battery on charge. it has nothing to do with any memory that's in the phone so you won't loss any info you have stored. hope this helps. :)
Hey everyone, just got a Nokia 8800 and loving it. But I am unsure regarding the battery. I'm using one at the moment and charging one on the desktop charger. Do i just leave the desktop charger power on with the battery and whne my battery dies I go and change it. WIll there be a memory effect if I overcharge the battery to much. If so what is receommened to do for the 2nd battery. Thanks
