I was seriously considering buying this phone, but after reading other users about the overheating issue and hanging problems, I might not buy one after all.
I can justify paying the $$$ for a phone, but if I was to pay that much for a phone, I expect it to have excellent build quality and reliability to perform it's normal functions.
I think thin one is better than gold one.This one good for hard work

Anonymous, 25 Dec 2008the nokia 8800 arte does not overheat. I have one and the battery last for over 3 days. If you do not feel or encounter overheat issue with your phone, there's only the following reasons:-
1. Either you do not own this phone or you never continously talk for over 10-15 minutes with your phone.
2. Judge from your phone standby time of 3 days, you definately don't talk much or don't talk long time with your phone. My phone can only last me one & a half day max. cause I'm quite a heavy talker.
3. You live in a cold places - like Alaska?!
I'm tired of the look and overall lousy performance of my 8800 Arte - (the speaker phone is very good though). I'm planning to replace it with the Motorola Aura - I had tried my friend's Aura, and all I can say is awesome! No 8800 Arte come close...

this phone is now old now the gold 1 has been launched lol there you all were thinking you where all rich lol defunked now i said there was a new 1 last week lol
This is the Kevin Rudd phone. It looks important but will cost you a fortune and does nothing, you will be disappointed.
i have bought all the sets of 8800 series and the arte series is the best its beautiful i have used all of them but carbon is carbon folks i would just say if u have it flaunt it its 4 classy ppl cause its a class mobile
Far too expensive. I have the original steel 8800, but this is way to much for anyone i know. What i do know is that carphone, 4's for you and vodaphone and orange and T-mobile wont even touch it at the price. None have any in stock

Anonymous, 16 Dec 2008Other than the look, this phone is really not much good to recommand.
Don't care what others... morepop cone, you don't have this expansive phone don't say you have
you can't buy it then say a lot of useless comment, maybe you have a big mouth
8800 series expansive cause of the material it use, maybe you buy a clone than regular
Other than the look, this phone is really not much good to recommand.
Don't care what others have to say - this phone, and most Nokia phones do overheat badly!
I had the "regular" 8800 Arte, which I changed 9 times for a new one by Nokia because of each one's different probblems. Then I brought the black Sapphire Arte after I got rid of the regular 8800 cos I can't stand the quality problems. The Sapphire Arte also hang once in a while & overheat; but the build quality much improved.
Also brought the Carbon Arte & thought it may improve, but in reality nothing have improved for the better. The look is not even as good nor as classic as the Sapphire Arte in the long term! - no wonder the Sapphire Arte is selling at a premium price over the Carbon Art recently!
Anyway, these are overheating phones and I'm really not impressed at all - no matter how good looking it was...I'm getting tired of the look too!
The con of this phone really over weight the pro!
ok. if you want to buy this phone and you are not sure if its fake or not, I will tell you how? first no one will sell this phone under $1250, second, genuine carbon arte is made in Korea, not in china, only Korea. and open the battery cover it will say 4 gb and 3.2 mega picksel auto focus camera. ok. Because I know the phone and I bought it already. good luck
