I love the build of the 8XXX series phones. That being said, why can't Nokia implement this kind of build on an "N" series phone?
I mean, they don't have to use such high-end materials as this, but an "N" series phone made of glass & metal would be great.
I am truly disappointed at the build of Nokia's handsets lately. The N96 is 1000 bucks, & is made entirely out of plastic. If you are willing to fork out $1000.00, whats an extra $150.00 for metal & glass??...doesn't make sense.
It's getting old. Even LG are using much better materials on their mid-tier phones.
Nokia have good designs, but really need to step up their game in the build quality department.
Well a lot of people said the same thing about the Nokia 8800 Sirocco as they do this phone and did i listen to them? NO! I bought it anyways! A couple of things that are obvious about this phone are that its way overpriced and that its just a simple phone. But i guess thats what hooks some people into buying it. I personally love the phone! A clean and fresh look with simple functions, you know the basics, but again very expensive. I wish more people on here would talk about the functions on the phone other than if they like it or not, because thats not going to help or hurt my decision on buying it! I wish they would knock of around $500 dollars on this one because honestly your just paying for a shiny paperweight. I don't have the phone as of yet but i am going to get one. You read the specs and you see the price so you definately know what your getting!!
instead of making the same phone with 10 different materials they should have made an 8 mpixel one with some serious specifications...
this design is like 326587563296983659 years old.... it's really a nice thought to put some carbon fibre on the as it looks very expensive but not on this phone..! they should have designed a new phone for their elite range....
what was the point to realease the odmodel which wasabout £800 when it first cameout STUPIDITY!
this phone has the absolute worst battery life ever. looks good but thats about it. if your thinking of getting one then make sure you stock up on a dozen batteries for it!
what a waste of a nicely designed handset.
I think only the ones passionate of art can appreciate this phone. Carbon is the 2008-2009 material in order of fashion. It is used both in interior of cars and now Nokia used it on a phone. Good work Nokia! :) If I had this kind of money I would buy it and appreciate it. :)
Wow Nokia you really excelled yourself this time! What an original design!
Ugly... man, really ugly... not in a million years worht its price... Arte means art in spanish... maybe they shoulda called it the feo... which means ugly also in spanish...
