Hi all, been reading all your comments re:Sirocco...
You know, Nokia limit the fuctions in purpose on the 8series phones...for one simple reason...if it has a massive spec camera,loads of GB and expandable memory etc etc then it would become 'common' this way Nokia limit the phone to have some of the features most people moan about hence keeping it exclusive...as for being common...it never will be...think about the 8850/8890 or the 8910i?? they were never common...and the 8800 series will also never be common...people just moan too much...if you want a mp3? buy an ipod...better than any phones mp3 capability.
The sirocco is specal to hold, it feels nice...yeh the ringtones are not all that....BUT they will only be on a Sirocco - no other phone...these little things make it stand out...for me personally...i loved the original 8800, still have it and sometimes swap from Sirocco....the original 8800 was 1mm thinner which if you hold the two the difference is apparent. As for the battery? well the Sirocco comes with the BP-6X battery which lasts longer than the BP-5X that came with the original 8800 - if you have the original 8800 then get the BP-6X battery - you will see a massive difference!
All in all...it's down to personal preference really...forget the cost of it...Nokia 8series phones have always been speacial....not loaded with massive fuctions...just the stuff you really need from a phone...if you like things that a little different,special to hold then get one...if not...well there is plenty out there to choose from...stay happy! :)
sirroco is very stylish fone but there is nothing new in this...all old functions like 8800 but price is very high
just got my new sirocco. excellent phone and looks very stylist. kicks butt on the plastic crap currently out there in the market which don't even last a year. phone does exactly what i need it to do send and receive calls, texts and pictures. don't understand why people go on about the technology, software music, camera etc etc on phones. simply a phone is a phone want to listen to music get an ipod want to take a picture get a digital camera. for those thinking about getting this phone i would recommend it.
please i am writing my opinions for all who imagine that nokia company produces such a mobile with this quality and big price and it is not good ?? sirocco is for those who looking for art in the design, sophistication and not for who can not appreciate the value .helloooo you can by the e65 or the n95 or e90 ,this phone is not for you.
i have a sirocco and there is a smell on phone like gunpowder. i think the smell come from the paint of faceplate.
The phone is absolute rubbish, im off to the repair shop today cos mine wont even turn on. looks stunning i will give it that, feels great, but the features are awful, the battery life is poor and i cant have a conversation on it without it cutting out. maybe mine is just faulty but rgardless the phone should be kept behind glass like an ornament not used.
Looks nice in the box and this is maybe the best place to keep it because as soon as you pick it up you leave unsightly finger prints all over it.Small keys that only ET could cope with and all in all nothing special apart from the build quality.Sell it on e bay to another sucker before the market is flooded with them.
I just purchased one of these and after 2 days of usage, realized that there is a burning smell from the phone. Has this happened to anyone else?
But admittedly looks slick even down to the packaging and instruction manual!
Most overpriced phone ever made! Decidedly average feature-wise. Should be reserved for people with too much money and no grasp of technology!
Very expensive for non special feature mobile phone. We can say that you'll just buy it because of the housing.
Where is memory; I need more.
This is the worsest set I have ever seen!!!
this is truely a masterpiece from nokia. old 8800 was terrible in terms of battery life but nokia has improved with sirocco. this phone looks really very elegent and stylish
i took of my operator log and it looks much better just go to wap.mob453.com
hey. i just love the sirocco, its a very nice phone and very elegant
Don't buy from e-buy-global.com !
It's strange that they got mobile phones 70% cheaper, e.g. 8600 Luna - $150. It's that odd, that it doesn't even cover production expenses...
So, my advice: don't even write to them. They aren't really from Italy! Their host is somewhere in Israel! It might aswell be some kid playing around behind his PC, and getting his money off our backs.
When I asked for their company's registration number, business rate, or something like that, the director replied to me they haven't got it for anybody. 'Cause that's something that has to be made public, so anyone may verify it.
Thanks! Bye! P.S.: Please tell others, on other forums, too!
