I have this phone from past 2 days and according to me this phone is one of the rubbish phone ever made by Nokia.Does not have Memory Slot,not compatible with Symbian.Whenever i try to open any application after receiving or making any call it goes hang.Now i am going to buy one W-800 and K-750 after selling this phone.
eu support :
I doubt if you have the 8800 because you said that the quality is good ...... do you know that every one of them hang ??? ... good quality ? you must be joking !!!
i don't know why there are ppl who still prefer 8800 over w800. I already check both phones in my hand. And personally i still prefer w800 in every aspects and every features. But you are rite eu support, the material for w800 is not that good, the one that i have a look at is already dirty. After all, it is just a matter of material, yet if you change the casing for w800, it won't cost as much as 8800. Steel will get rust after sometime.
Do the japanese use 8800? if they use nokia phones.. i do not bother as long as it isn't the 7 series, because nokia phones are good except for this one and the 7 series.
Btw, about never using sony ericsson i will agree with that though, check at the w800 forum.. so many ppl having w800 as their first sony ericsson as their switch from nokia :) ---> whats that mean ha? something happening with nokia lately?
i have 8800 and w800i both, i dont know y people prefer w800i, actually w800i function is okey, but quality and material is absolutely poor, i have sold my w800i. otherwise i know couple of japanese, even they use nokia fone, they never use sony ericsson, and they said nokia is the best in mobile, ibm is the best in pc. they just sell their product 2 us making money. occupy our market, replace our eu product. so definitely we should support nokia and moto....they r worlds no1 and 2..they r the best........
Just picked up my 4th 8800......this one hang just like the other three.
I am giving up Nokia, I am looking forward to the Motorola L7 which will be on sale very soon. Cheers.
hiya. i work for a phone company and we are constantly out of stock, i dont know why, its an aweful phone. we have had nearly 50% returned within the 1st 2 weeks due to faults with the softwear and also the slider breaking. if you have the money to purchase this mobile, dont, wait for the Nokia N91 its AMAZING or even wait a bit longer for the Nokia 8800i
haha pc9113.. i agree with you.. nokia phones are best only the phone before 6600 and 6600 itself, 6630 and 6680 is ok. but after that they just rubish. Look at those 7 series.. none of them are decent phone. They look really really daggy. This phone is the worst among others (not really if it cost like $500?) it just overprice.. anyone who get this phone just ppl who want to waste money (rather dumb and not wise). I just check the W800 today, the design looks better if you see the actual phone rather than simply look at the picture. good on you mate.. you are not a brand ambassador like others.. you really open yourself. I was a nokia user too, but my last nokia phone are the generation before they have the color phone one, a really old one. Now i use sony ericsson, and since then i prefer sony ericsson more than nokia. Btw, N90 is not too bad though, its pretty good actually, just a bit too big for my pocket, which is the sort of phone that i really really avoid. N91 cool in features but the design is really ugly.
rubish...nokia does not know what to make...nokia is out of ideas...too expensive phones...good but expensive...this rubbish is not worth the money.....i loved nokia now i stopped...i love SE...SE has briliant ideas and logical prices....SE rules now.....i bought my first non-nokia phone SE w800i and i love it...my old nokia 6600...was amazing 2...the smartphones 6600, 6630,6680 are nice but after them its all rubish..how can they compare w800i with n90...if n90 had better camera i wouldnt buy it...i hate the design..w800i has great design and colour....i hate phones with doors...and i loved nokia for that reason but now its rubbish......SONY ERICSSON RULES.....
hey i've gotten this phone ever since the have in the U.S . i like its design alot,cuz i am the nokia 8*** series fan alrite . those ppl who always complain about the camera, keypad and function can just shut up cuz this phone it's design for ppl who use luxery stuff, they don't made for you to take picture,or don't make to go online .. jezzzzzzz . if you want good picture buy a digital camera,and if you want an oganizer buy the pda ..they don't make a cell phone that almost $1k just to take picture think about it ..duh ......
it really annoys me people slagging of this phone if you dont want to buy it dont buy it. its not meant to be excelent in features its menat to look good and be different theres no need 2 bitch about it its a phone for god sake. no one is forcing you to like it so stop whinging! growq up!
haha.. good one applier. This phone's design is simple with a simple feature too for simple ppl hahaha.
no matter how exclusive it is, the design itself is too simple to be called as masterpiece---> some ppl say it looks like a dildo? haha.. very good one. It does actually, like if you open the phone, it really looks like it (i don't want to go further, but i think you got my point). hehehe. too simple!
Design - not good.
Features - not good.
Performance - ok.
Not for rich but ignorant ppl. People who wanna be something they are not...
ppl can say whatever they want to...its a phone without a market.
8800 is to ripped ppl money... simple!
is not meant for ppl who want exclusiveness really.. only for those whose money is just too much and do not know where to waste it simple!
design looks exclusive but more like a dildo even the mechanism system.. simple!
this phone is aimed directly at the Motorola RAZR V3 handset which is at the exclusive money-no-object end of the market. I however believe Motorola wins in the Looks category at least
this fone is coooool!
not a piece of tech wizardry. not supposed to be!
the fone is meant to be exclusive. simple!
it isnt aimed at ppl who want the best tech. its aimed at ppl who want to be exclusive. simple.
the fone has big price tag cos nokia dont want every tom, dick n harry buying it. simple!
do you understand yet? its very simple!!
everyone who complains about the price is the ppl who arnt supposed to buy it. simple!
get it yet??
you dont buy cos u cant afford or cos you moan. u not supposed to have it! it aint aimed at ppl like you. simple!!
its about exclusivity. simple. just like rolls, porsche, ferrari!! simple!!
you dont understand? u simple!!
I can't believe that something so expensive does not come with a basic ringtone such as "Ring Ring".....this is really silly and made worse by the fact that newer Nokia handsets will no longer have "Ring Ring" as a supplied default ringtone (according to the Nokia service centre I spoke to). THis is just plain daft and inconvenient for all Nokia users.
Anyone know where I can find a basic "Ring Ring" ringtone that can be used on the 8800?
why is it not a mega pixel cam?
where has the memory slot gone?
why would anyone buy this phone when it is not symbian.
Only duff biz men..who can only make calls in their mobiles will buy this i guess...
sorry nokia its not my cup'o'T
I think that the phone is good, but only that the price is very high. i do not se why is expensive for only the look of it. the N series are much better in kind of option.but well everyone are not as me soo.
yes... yes... good job 'reader'!!! i support wat you say.. i hate those who say that ppl who bash this phone are ppl who cannot pay for the phone.. just to remind.. Those of us who can afford to buy a phone, even for the cheapest one are ppl who can afford for the most expensive phone. It will be better if we say those who do not want to buy expensive phone are those who do not want to spent so much on mobile phone and wise.
