To the previous post and the rest people:
As consumers we want the money we give for a product to represent the quality,the value and usefulness of it.
Unfortunately this doesn’t happen with Nokia 8800 and Nokia 8800 SE.
Price exceeds features,reliability and performance.Even my old Nokia 8910 is better than these phones.
In other words Nokia found an easy way and marketing tricks to rip off people.
This is Nokia 8800 SE - user opinions and reviews board and not a board for people that actually want or like this phone.
It’s easy to say the same cheap excuse again and again that people is jealous and can't afford it, because you don’t have something else to say to defend this “phone”,but it’s very hard to admit that this “phone”is not worthy and has nothing to show except high price.Maybe the truth hurts and some people don't want to see it.
Except from the design of this "phone" which is a subjective point of view if you like it or not, there is no other reason to defend this "phone".
Nokia 8800 SE is an overpriced product without a reason.This phone has nothing to show or you have nothing to expect from it.
If you want a bibelot or something to show off this phone is for you.
If you want a decent, reliable or good featured phone this Nokia 8800 SE is not for you.
I wouldn't recommend to anyone buying this "phone" just for the looks.
In market there are better alternatives.Simple as that.
PS:This phone is not a status symbol and it will never be classic like the rest 8xxx series models.
So it doesn’t make sense the expensiveness of this phone.
If you want to give more than £500 for this phone that's fine,it's your decision and right to do this but don't criticize other people with different opinion than yours.
I would like to tell you my personal opinion; this is place for USER opinions and REVIEWS. I’m quite sure that most of the people that placing theirs opinion here never used 88xx for more than few minutes in the shop only.
So, please don’t try to explain that all the 88xx users here are just stupid persons which are willing to spend money for noting, if you have something to discuss, do it, but… if you are not able to understand the reason why the 88xx is expensive I just want to say that I’m sorry, but you will never understand that. Regards to all 88xx users
Please stop all this non sense and be net friends, at the end of the day its just a fone and why the hell we wasting our time in arguing
To All GSMArena fans
lol This is the PHONE....He is more beatifull than my girlfriend...I will buy it
Sirocco, Rocco Sifredi.. huh? lol.. i thnk that rocco designed it after leaving his name on that stuff. Lol
Im looking to order this phone in a few days but im unsure which colour looks beter. Can anyone who has seen an actual hanset please advise. Any replies are appreciated.
Goes without saying.. the phone looks attractive.. yet for the money Nokia expects people to invest in it, it is absurdly low equiped. Of course, the idea is to sell a fashion phone, not a skillful one.. but this is outrageous.. Anyone who buys this phone before it gets to aprox 550 - 600 $ must be either a moron, a fanathic, or Bill Gates' son.
i love my old 8800...at first i planned to get this one...but since i saw it in real..i didn't like it at all...somehow the old 8800 look nicer than this one.
I like the look of this phone....
i have a N80 right now, but im not happy with that phone. all the special stuff that is on. I dont use it. i rather have a stylefull phone with software i can trust.
im down with this phone. yeah!
I have a friend who has his own telecom company and he can get these phones £280 sim free - beat that. Problem is that he has been advised stay well away from them because they have some major problems with them and nokia are thinking of recalling the model. But no doubt everyones phone is working fine??
It's really confused,only a few months,Nokia's been producing a lot of different 8800's models(apart from from the original Silver 8800),basically,they all the same phone with more or less features,look a bit different and carry a different names and ofcoz different price tags,the real problem is Nokia will not stop there(until they have a new idea on the drawing board).We love to see an upgrade of the pre-love Silver 8800,we really love to see a better version,we really want to see Nokia fix all the Silver 8800's problems.
apart from the s/s cover what else has it got other than its hefty price tag.
answer, nothing new or unique.
truly not worth its price tag.
would like to say a few things, i own a 8800 black and a sirocco black, just bought it today.
1.the battery is bigger, but will only last for a while longer comparing to 8800
2.the housing is very well polished comparing to 8800.
3.the camera is better comparing to 8800
4.keypad easier to use( I have big hands)
1.the housing is so well polished, your finger prints gets on it really easily.
2.eventhough the camera is better, but i would rather use a real camera for pics, as lets face it ,the phone is for showing off in front of others.
3.the keypad is easier to use, but the answer phone button and hang up button is not elegant enough for a phone of this class. the button are carved out, which does not go well with the rest of the keypad which the numbers are kinda printed on it. the 8800 black is better in this area as the whole keypad matches.
4. this is personal preference i think, the housing of sir is so well polished, it kinda lost the feel of metal for me.
Well I got my handset this morning i got it on the voda network for £99.99 800mins 500 txts £50pm tariff on a 12 month contract, I just wanted this one, as I am just used to Nokias, (i have been using their smartphones for years 7650,3650,7610 and N70) so far it seems ok. I have not had any major issues with it. I popped into my local Phones4U to see what they could offer, nothing close what so ever. I was pleasantly surprised to find a bluetooth headset included, my mates think it is a really nice phone as do I.
The camera has a digital zoom, night mode, self timer, image sequencer, effects ie normal, greyscale, sepia and negative; white balance ie auto, daylight, tungsten, flourescent and horizon, you can set the picture settings to either basic, normal and high, you can set the picture resolution from 160x120 up to 1600x1200 (just under 2Meg) It will not have SE worried on the cam/phone front, as when you zoom in on any pictures and want to read any text forget it!!, but for taking pictures when you're out and about, it will be fine
