The nokia 8800 sorocco phone looks cool but to be honest its no that advanced than the nokia 8800.
I work with mobile phones and get to test the phones out, not impressed with the sorocco and no big changes.
Nokia are running out of ideas, when you bring out a upgrade to the 8800 you meant to make the h/set million times better not just improve it on minor parts like the camera.
I'll stick with my 8800
stupid phone for stupid peolple who just want to show off!though i like the design...
but why buy something just because it`s goodlooking.it`s just like having a hot,sexy wife but very,very stupid.but when you come to think about it...
i had a sharp 903. that was a very cool phone, fully featured pack. but then i didn't want a phone with all the 3g, great mp3 with memory card, large 3mp camera staff. and this is the whole point.you can get whatever you want and like. why say is so expensive and has nothing to offer??? this phone makes every other phone look cranky and plastiky. and is soo beaituful. and in the end if you want a good mp3 player get an ipod or something. if you want a good camera get a digital camera.
Nice Design! Poor Features! Too Expensive! 1 point for Good and 2 points for Bad... Winner? Bad! I wud rather have the N93
This phone is all about image, if you like playing around with a piece of plastic and some rubbery cheap button, this phone isnt for you. If you live in a little house and dont earn any money, buy something else.
This phone is for people who sort the business out, and can spend their money buying beautiful things. To the other people, try sonyeric , or something like that and leave the worry about the price to the big timers.
I have read the comments on this website.
I can see both side of the arguments,
It is a expensive phone, and does not have all ther functions of the 6280.
I have actualy brought this phone it cost me the following
£100 To pay towards it
And £35 a month on Dolphin 35 ( orange ) I get 500 mins and 500 txts
However because i have a friend who works at orange i have managed to get 40% of my line rental, so actualy it costs me £21 a month SCORE!!!
It look lovely
It works great very easy to use.
And the battery lasts 3 days before it needs a charge!!!!
Whats the problem???
Nice phone did not cost much, if you dont agree with that you just cant afford the initial £100!!
And when i come to sell it it will still be worth loads!
So buy one from Moco Cellink 0800662626
I think its a cool phone. But a phone that expensive should have expandable memory so you can do more stuff with it. My verdict.. Its an ornament for those who want to show off. Love it though!
lots of considerations b4 getting this phones. yet despite the negativity, and the 'value for money' philosophy i decided to get 1. i can't say i'm impressed with the tech. being offered in this phone. i may have gone with O2 stealth, or HP windows-based smart pda/phone, but i didn't. 1 thing for sure, owning a sirocco makes u feel damn 'powerful'. i love that feeling. it's like having paris hilton as a girlfriend. or perhaps having sex with a royalty. my suggestion is u buy it if u feel like it. flirt with it for sometime, then trade it in. if u decide to own it, then don't regret it.
mate the battery dont last 4 or 5 days,. dont get me wrong it is a vast improvement to the old 8800 but i use my sirocco for 30 mins on average a day and sometimes i can scrape 2 days of battery life out of it but there is no way you are gettin 4 or 5 days. Other than that this phone is the bomb for true g's
i just got the sirocco 8800 it's realy good, the battery lasts 4-5 days with a medim usage of 30-40 minutes/per day... great look... i am please with it ( the original 8800 battery was realy crap , i had to change the battery twice a day...)
in india it costs approx. rs. 44,000 !!! :O
why the heck will i buy a phone with mere 2 MP camera & lousy 128 mb non-expandable memory :(
common, nokia should get more "PRACTICAL", i agree its "DESIGNER" phone but why price it alomost 4 times its equvalent phones !!!
This is very elegant phone it suits for the people in the planet earth who can afford. For those who cannot, please I mean please keep your mouth shut. Every individual has its own taste perhaps your's different. But I dont care I love this Phone..
Don't know what kind of "business needs" include having to change your battery after every 2 hrs + of talk-time. If you take the fact that business men are busy people who don't always have access to a power source into account, the phone is reduced to nothing more than a cosmetic marvel. I'd get one for my wife- just like Kobe Briant did under circumstances simiar to mine :-(
a pityful piece of technology with outstanding finishing touches. Ideal for those high on fashion and low on technology.
This is a very luxurious and high-end phone for those who can afford it. Those who keep attacking people who buy this phone should keep quiet. Don't judge people for how they spend their money, they earned it, not you. Perhaps you cannot afford it? Also this phone hasn't dropped to 400 USD yet. It is still in it's high 900's and 1000's. It's indeed a very high class phone to have. Small, elegant, luxurious, one-of-a-kind. Functions might not be that great, but it suits all business needs.
I'd rather go for the Moto K1 for style&look and pay just 1/3 the price and get more features and asleast there's nothing like it for a moment or if I like Nokia then I'd rather go for the original Silver 8800...wake up folks,Sirroco is not a good fone as its price has dropped USD 400 since released only few months ago :-) :-) :-) ./.
