This phone is a pile, people go for the looks but can you tell me what you see that i don't ?
The original 8800 and this have the worst battery life and on the market, have very few worthwhile features and they're extremely heavy for their size.
And before you dismiss my comments i work for a UK mobile phone network, not saying which one, so i know my stuff.
It amazes me how many people ring up like "i want this phone and nothing else i'm not interested what you've got to say i don't want anything else" - these are the people who want to cancel their contract after 2 months saying the phone is Sh*te.
Never mind eh, as long as one of your friends stupidly thinks it's ace and your cool, and that makes you warm and fluffy inside, that's all that matters yeah ?!
nokia 8800 is very disponting it has a very short talking time and the battery does not give a warning before dieing out... its ****
This phone is for people who want a status symbol but can't afford a Vertu. It's as simple as that.
I am very dissappointed that having purchased this phone as a present for my wife, that it does not have a 'normal'ring tone that is loud enough to hear when it is in her handbag.
I have the 8800 sirocco black and silver, i still think the normal 8800 is better to use
funny how nokia sirocco is getting such low ratings... how expensive it is shouldnt affect how you guys rate it... i guess you hate what you cant get right
The STYLE, the BEAUTY, the CLASS and the COLOR. I love this phone. If it was possible to marry one I would :P
I used to have the normal 8800 and then i purchased the 8800 sirocca. The battery seems is 10 times better. The little software improvements are also a good additonal touch.
Wow....beauty Nokia mobile phone,it ladies phone right?someone can told me a price?...but it don't got a 3G,and not using for memory card just 128 built in memory only,i think my girl friend will like for it....it the smart choice smart present for my girl birthday
I see alot of people whining! previously I had 2 standard silver 8800's and they were honestly the best phones I have ever owned.
People on one half are complaining that the phone has no features, your being scammed, nokia have just stuck a metal case on a phone and charged a stupid price... -these people dont have the spare cash to afford a decent phone.. sorry guys! arwww :( maybe sometime in the future eh? ur stuck with big bulky 'smart phones' when people like me have actual GPS in there cars.. ACTUAL powerful apple laptops that piss on your symbian, and a very powerful mobile phone that commands respect and is worthy of being an everyday accesorry without being just one more cheap plasticky bit of technology that plagues your pocket!
...and on the other half we have the people that have clear experience with these phones! if you have used a normal 8800 then you will know the quality you are getting.. i believe the slide on the normal 8800 was developed by a f1 racing engineering team, the glass was scratch resistant! the weight just added to the feel of 'old school' quality! the screen was amazing it was perfect for viewing in bright sun or in the dark! so now imagine the sirocco with its 2mp digital camera, because all i do is want to be able to catch a quick snapshot of a moment that i wouldnt be able to pull out my digital camera at and i want to make and recieve calls and send text!
my current phone at the moment however is the n73... what a tacky piece of shit! its goin back tomoro! i need the sirocco! a real phone!
they are NOT smart phones... so sorry all you geeky installing apps and posting on symbian forum types... this clearly isnt for you! stick to your gay smart phones that develop lots of problems and need to be reflashed all the time!
My pocket has:
Apple Ipod Nano. - music.
Nokia 8800 - Communication.
My lifestyle permits:
Audi TT Quatro - travel.
Apple powerbook - internet, business, email.
if you drive a opel/vauxhall corsa... and u have a big dry desktop sitting there..
yeh yeh! smartphone! yay! lets pack more features than we can possibly safely do into a cheap tacky shell that one drop, and everything is corrupt and needs to be sent back!
does your phone turn itself on and off again? do you have restrictions on apps being installed? does your autofocus 3mp digital camera inside your phone take too long to actually focus and take the shot? by this time its a big blur on your screen? if you go online with your phone does your battery finish in an hour and a half? ...heres the solution! accept it! its clear this phone is out your reach! hahahahahahaah!
i saw this one at store yesterday
it seems like..a cry far from being "chocolate"
not beautiful at all
this phone got 6 from 10
chocolate got 9.9 from 10
siemens SL91 got 9 from 10
hello, my unit is 8800, is it possible to upgrade my cel into 2mega pxl like the 8800Sirocco... or if not, increasing the memory of my unit will do.
the nokia does look good but its not as cracker decker as the samsung e900.i have this fone in pink and would not change it for the world.up the tele tubbies.
I had excattly the same problem with the ECHO. i have emailed you with waht i found, but sadly i dont think there is a cure?!
i bought this handset yesterday and i have been waiting for it since the day it was announced and seen my first glimpse of it. the battery does seem to be better and as ive heard from my friends who have it also have all liked it and all given good reviews about this phone. some people dont like it but if you have had the original 8800 then this is a must according to me. you will see and feel the difference. overall.... i must say i love this phone.
yes, the phone is very classy, but it is not the most expensive and elegant phone in the market, a company called vertu is probably the most expensive and elegant company with phones startin at 3K and ending to about as much as a very nice car.
This phone is better than the 8800, the battery life is defo better! anyone interested in buying a brand new one in the box? As I have two. But im defo holdin on to one myself ofcourse. email me if interested. I am considering posting on ebay, they seem 2 be selling for in and around £500 on there.
