I have this phone and let me be the first to say all the comments here are well off. The phone is more than worth its price. Very nice to look at and feels great in the hand, like it was built to last.
Next this may not be a music phone but it does well with the 4 GB of storage and loud speaker. The speaker is as loud as the Nokia 5310 if not louder with very good quality.
Whereas with every other 8 series phone the battery life has been bad. The Carbon Arte does its best to excel averaging around 2 days of good use. I used it to listen to music on full volume for 3 to 4 hours both days.
If your looking for a phone with GPS and all the perks your looking at the wrong phone, this phone is simply about quality and class. It gets the job done of an average mobile user very well.
Now the choice is yours!
I have this phone and its the best s40 I ever had.The only negative is the screen under sun You see nothing I have test all the themes but nothing
Since this fone is very expensive, well at least nokia should provide a better battery, a quadband GSM, video call camera, and a radio!
some times when i open the slider the screen become off " black " and i must push any key to turn it on.and some times when i open it the clock shows.there is no dust and ....such thing . thats all.if u wana a high tech phone it is not ur phone.it is briliant phone.very classy.i love it.
i have this phone, and i am happy with it!
it feels extremly solid in your hand. its heavy because of the glass and titanium, but thats what makes it special. i really like it.
no dust has entered the screen yet, and the back cover hasnt come off either. during a call my phone also becomes warm, but not hot(!).
To those who consider buying it: be sure your expectations are in order: thi phone is really just for making calls, texting and showing off. if thats worth more than 1000€/$ for you, then go for it!
huhu.. plz don compare this phone with other high-tech stuff. this model have it own 'line stage'. for me this phone suitable for business owner or ppl who dont know what to do with their extra money and want to show their 'rich'.
follow up this model from sirocco. nice development from nokia. later will take this phone, this phone will using for call in/out/sms & my diamond htc using for keep data.
i have this mobile, i thought i will be happy if i get it , but it doesn't happen,,,
there are some negative points on it ,, for exmp: when i receive a message it comes uncompletly, until veiw min, the second point when you talk , after just 5 min it becomes hot , third point the pattery life not very long,number 4, the dust intering inside the phone because it has a big holes ,so if you deside to buy it just consider all these negative points.

the nokia 8800 carbon is a great mobile ,my only prblem is with the voice clarity the speaker in all 8800 series is low
I own both - the Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte & the Motorola V9, and honest to God, the Motorola V9 is way better and much more convinence to use.
The camera of the V9 much better but the 8800 Arte battery life last longer....I believe it's because the V9 is a much thinner phone with 2 big screens; so the battery consume much faster.
people are banging about the prize of nokia 8 series because they just cannot afford an 8 series phone ^_^
better phones are for better people. if you own a carbon then you are one of us, better person & above average..
the battery needs a lot of improvement it barely last for twenty four hours.
