well this phone is not for everyone. its for people who seeks looks,class and most of all ATTENTION. im sure, that this phone will become a classic like the 8850,8910,8910i. its gonna be a collector's item in the next 20 years. Go Nokia. I love my 8910.
he is right they look exactly the same i picked one up yesterday but the software inside is a cheap copy of nokia
Ok first please dont say any bullshxt about this sweet baby it one of kind it has great look but missing few things like FM, Talktime, ect but still this phone is the great in style I have bought this phone for USD 1800 almost five months back just when it came out in the market acutally this phone is for style and Rich people only so please buy this phone for style not for its specifications and dont compare it with vertu cause they are both diffrent things style and power well good work NOKIA u will allways be the best in phone
so, if we get the replica ones, is it that good? i guess it would look like plastic. people will know its a replica even if they're a mile away. right?
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2008Someone already asked but I will ask again is it true it does not work well in the US because ... moreyes, but apparently the replica ones look exactly like the 8800 arte and it weighs the same and is quadband but it does not have wifi =( the site is http//www.slashedpricetag.com
This phone has a very big price. Not for it's functionality but for the materials used. They dont just give a price to a phone like that. They calculate how much it cost them for the material and such. This phone was given a normal functionality but spectacular looks. I would get this phone, If I have the money lol. It has scratch free material, Smooth slide, soft keypad & colour. The functions only AUD$200 materials AUD$1500.
stupid phone..it.s about 730euros, and it can do nothing..and it.s so ugly. 4 only 400euros i can buy a nok n95 8GB(symbian,3.5G,wifi, FPU,..) wich is far better than 8800 arte saphire..simply...it doesn.t compare with my n82(symbian,3.5G,wifi, FPU,..) !!
all the troubles are understandable as this phone is sheer elegance and nothing else
For those of you considering owning the Arte!!
Forget functionality!! Forget versitility!!
This mobile is all about style and wealth. There's nothing like placing it on a table to anounce your presence. Everyone will want to pick it up whilst putting theirs away, never to be seen again in public!! The green eyed coments will begin to flow,'It's too expensive', 'The cameras no good', there's no radio', 'It's so heavy'............
The truth is, it's stylish and shouts sophistication. It says you care how you look and how people percieve you.
Your willing to pay that bit extra to be set apart from the crowd, the also rans!!
I've just got mine, in fact I have all the 8800's.They are the dress mobile, champagne in one hand arte in the other.
Everyone else.... has Lager!!
a very expensive phone from nokia..
a phone for a chosen few and the lucky ones.. for the born rich, or became rich people only c",
two months down the line and the software blew out on me. its never happened on the cheaper nokia's i have used all my life. when i sent it to the nokia priority dealer they said it would take 15 days to repair so i mean why do we pay so much if nokia cant provide quick service for their premiums phones. its just a sexy looking phone, not as reliable as the brand image suggests it should be.
The camera color is too 'red'...and so the picture outcome very un-natural!
Anonymous, 01 Jul 2008I used this phone for two weeks i really liked it but then i got the Vertu Ascent Ti and the T... morei had the ascent ti as well, but i love my sapphire arte much more than my ti. Whis phone is much better than the ti. And even much better than my vertu nurburgring edition. However, i am having problem with my arte's camera. Maybe because this is te first version for the software used in arte.
I used this phone for two weeks i really liked it but then i got the Vertu Ascent Ti and the Ti is way better this phone this phone is okay but i would still prefer the Ti over it more luxurious
is the saphire in the middle real?? if not why is it worth £1000??? xx
Sure eye catcher in bar
n95 will make u look like a geek but this will make u look like superstar..sure it catch more chicks...
nway this phone its for LOOKS not for its FUNCTIONS
this mobile is really stupid.500-1000 euros I have to give for this junk??!!hello,are u normal??It's ugly,stupid but only positive thing is 1GB memory!!please post my comment and I hope that I didn't make a mistake about this cellphone!!kiss
you stupid people, why don't you understand the diference between a luxury phone and a multimedia phone? you don't have how to compare those 2 classes of mobile gsm,don`t you see?? the price of n95 is going down badly , but the luxury one decreas much harder!!! a nokia 8800 classic it`s steel 300 eur after 3 ears, i wonder how much a nokia n95 will be after this time!!! best regard!
jakontil, 26 Jun 2008they should have implemented a video call ability, at leastfor those ppl who are using such premium phone, you think they will care what function the phone has got? think wat they really want are only the look. where got time to VIDEO CALL?
