This phone has similarity to a vertu phones....Vertu is also a nokia owned company but comparing to it's features i think the Nokia 8800 is best because vertu using the old monochrome screen and similar features in the older models of nokia(8210 for example) but 8800 has a advanced features they only familiar to it's built structure....
There is problem with the build quality and especially the quality control with this 8800 from Nokia!
Some of them have very weak reception and some of them Ok ... depending if you are lucky!!!
Personally owning this mobile phone, my review is that, Yes it does look cool and believe it or not ppl do get attracked to this phone out of the blue, but anything, apart from looking good the screen is nice and bright plus scratch proof, classy and fashionable and that about it i guess, poor battery life, body get easily scratch, heavy, signal for me is good where i live so that is not much of a problem, finger mark when ever i or other ppl use it, not to fuss about the camera, at the end of hte day it a phone, so here you go some good and some bad point and at the end of the day it up to you to buy it or not. Personally if you like it go for it, but other ppl think it not worth the money i too agree on that because it does cost abit, so u can decide by urself.
pls pls pls i extremely not recommending you to get this phone for some reasons:
1. its not worth its price
2. features so-so onli
3. camera onli 0.5 Mp/SVGA
4. battery life span onli for 1 day
5. anti scratch screen but not on the stainless body
6. very heavy
7. Nokia 6230i has a lot better feature with 1/3 the price
I like to know what's this phone like, from people who has this already.
How is de battery-life, the options, the covers which you van see every fingertouch on and the camera.
Who can help me with this?
i am trying to find out from people who have the phone if they get less signal than others on there network because the is story's going around that because of the metal finish it interfere's with the signal and this is why some networks won't sell it.
sold my first one today!!! only had the handset in store for 3 days (they've been on back order the whole time that they've been available in australia). it looked good when i turned it on for the customer but i hope it doesn't come back with any problems because after getting the first one in store they are on backorder again!!! so i'll have to wait for another month to get one in...
it has so POOR Battery life, why doesn't Nokia make the battery better ? i'd better buy a big 6310i for sure
This phone is cool but they gave us 2 batteries to last 1 day each. Display is bright and overall impression is that of a solid fone and well built.
I have recently upgraded my contract to A nokia 8800 it does have a poor battery life which does not matter as I change the battery every morning before work anyway the phone is stylish and has a real touch of class a phone very few people have which is good definatly a thumbs up for me
i dunno why so many ppl here says that the design is nice.. i think T610 has a better design. to those of you who do not know will simply think that T610 is just brick. To those who has hold the phone and feel the edge wouldn't even say that it is brick because it is actually curved slightly at the edge and it has no straight line at all. In my opinion, that is the true masterpiece in design. This phone is just too simple in terms of idea.
I am looking forward to purchaseing a 8910I before I realized that it would not work in The U.S. I now have my eye on this beuty , the 8800. I can't beleive they don't have a version of the 8910I that supports GSM bands in America. =(
What kind of hospital do you work in where you can carry a cell phone which is turned on around in??? That doesn't make any sense...
By the way, I don't know why everyone is so down on Ty's "soapopera" stories on here...although I do use this site for info on my 8800, I find his comments entertaining!
Does anyone know any internet sites that have wallpapers or themes specifically made for the 8800?
Well surprise.... another post from Ty with absolutely nothing about the 8800. Yes the phone is expensive, so are many things. In all reality wealth is not measured by how flash your phone is or how many cars or houses you have, this is just money.If you aspire to these things only you will be nothing but poor. I know plenty of people who are a lot more 'comfortable'than you and they measure their wealth not in how much money they have but in the relationships they have with people. The internet is full of sites for lonely and sad people like yourself. Out of the twenty or so posts you have made there has been little or no information about the nokia 8800, its funtionality, its design or your experience with it. People use this site for information on mobile phones not your life. Fact. The phone is expensive, thats what price tags are for. What I'm interested in is what people think of this phone not their life story.
The nokia 8800 is a good looking beautifully made mobile phone, but is short battery life really lets it down. A mobile phone is not much use if it runs out of battery when you need it. In saying that the phone feels great and looks fantastic, if this is what you are looking for in phone its hard to go pass the 8800....
nice LOOKING phone.....but lack features. and i found it very hard to press the "up" arrow after i slided up. I heard someone said it has anti-flinger print feature..but in fact..it doesn't.
Cheers phoneshopwill. Well i agree with you, this place should all be about mobiles and that. Hope my comments help people as this is what it is about. Im looking at getting a new phone soon as well not sure what tho, so any ideas people be great.
I just came back home from Europe after my business meeting in Praha & Amsterdam.
I do not notice any 8800 for sale; nor even display in any shop in Praha. What they do have is the new SE-D750 in light grey colour(looked exactly the same as the K750/W800).
When I was in Amsterdam, I went into a Nokia shop to ask for the price of the 8800 & if they have any in stock so that I can buy one to see if it has the same software problem as my previous four. The Nokia sales told me there is absolutely no 8800 available!
Anyway, I picked up my 5th 8800 this evening (I live in Hong Kong). I played around with it(to use up the battery & to test & set up the phone) & noticed there is still same software problem as with the other four I had previously owned!!!
What is wrong with Nokia nowadays??? This phone was out for more than 3 long months already & stupid Nokia do not even do any upgrade to the 8800. SHAME ON NOKIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just read with amusement some of the comments about my being "rich".
Of course the 8800 is expensive. Of coure not everyone can afford it. But that is simply the nature of a free economic society.
I - as well as many people on this site - are comfortable. But it's all relative. I have friends that have two vacation homes instead of one. I have friends that own four cars instead of three. I have friends with an airplane in additon to a boat. I have friends that no longer have to work, as I do.
In summary, it's all relative. If you can afford the 8800, feel good about it. I remember when I didn't have enough money to buy a meal when I put myself through med school. I make no apologies for success, and neither should you.
Don't put people down for getting what they want. If you work hard enough you too can get what you want - even the Nokia 8800!
