listen, i own a 8800, and i dont see it as a status symbol, orview it as expensive or watch the low features,i am basically a lover of phones, if u have u go around complaing and just trying put things down then u need to get out more!!!! some dude said he love his razr with more features and it costs less, do u believe the razr is worth that money, actually if u knew the production costs of many things u would not even wear underclothes.
on a point of note, when i bought the 880 i ddnt expect all the fanfare,i already had two smartphones and the like so i was cool. whether or not its a money making thing, oh well, isnt everything?? its like saying u wont wear nike cuz its made in sweatshops, but hey, where do u think all the clothes ur wearing are made........?
i think i need to sell my car to get it i have used the 8800 but this looks brilliant. i would have loved if Nokia had put in a memory card for external memory would have added even more gr8 value.Should have also included a WIFI as all new fones are commin with it but would get one soon may be in January wen the price drops a bit
OK you have nokia 8800 and v3 the most of the people are buying motorola v3 because is a flip with a super keyboard.the same is with 8800se and k1 and k1 will be again number one !
Nokia 8800 Sirocco at the glance:
For :better camera+more memory+Radio.
Again:wier looking housing+battery life+
Hope that Nokia's fixed the software problem(phone keeps turning off and earpiece is hardly hear).This's only for people whose have lot of money to play around with or want to show off,now we can only pay 1/4 the price for a lot better phone with a lot more features,that we call value for money./.
Hi @ all, I got this phone since about 1 week, and its not so bad. Batterylife is much better than my old standard 8800. Software, especially phonebook works much more professional and the cam pics are fine. So why not buying one?
If this phone sux so bad the why is does the old 8800 maintain its high price!? if this fone is as sucky as u all say then the price would drop like a brick so why dont u think abt that b4 dissing a fone so bad!
Dude people buy Ferarris cos they are a good piece of machinery. Their features and benefits live up to their couple of hundred thousnd dollar price tags. Not because they look hot!
This phone is NOT the Ferarri of mobile phones! It does not have features and benefits to live up to its price tag!
And to tell you the truth, it isnt as good looking as some people say it is!
You could pay 1/3 of the price for something with more features that also looks a lot better.
How you can say we are all JeAlOuS amazes me!
I have this feeling that the tables may turn once you own this phone for a while and start posting your problems on GSM arena.
I own a ferarri!!! I know what is worth my money!! This phone is not! I would rather walk around with a phone that has its features and is practical for use, but may be a little bigger, than looking like a tool with this featureless phone.
Lets face it. It is for people who want to look like they are rich!
You dont see too many positive comments on here! Maybe thats a sign.......
you aristocrats are amazing! everytime somehting comes that you own that's not worth its exhorbitant price, those complaining are "too broke" to afford it. yeah we're just a bunch of poor people who *wish* we could own an overpriced piece of nokia garbage. we go to work everyday and *aspire* to be like you with your nokia 8800se.
NOTTTTTTT!!! i have no reason to be jealous. i'll soon have a Motorola KRZR K1 and i'll end up paying 1/3 the price for more functions, twice the battery life and actual style. the nokia 8800se isn't even that hot, it looks like a heavy piece of metal junk that somebody accidentally stepped on to leave that imprint.
all you aristocrats just keep your chargers handy. you're gonna need them with battery life so bad, even CDMA users can laugh at you.
What are you talking about? Can't you seem most people on here complain about how expensive it is? Mostly it's inner indirect jealousy. You think people buy it because of it's price? People don't buy ferraris because it's expensive.
Get your head on right man. What the hell.
this fone is mazin a got it bout a week ago n its tha best fone av eva ad.ano u sey tht tha battery lyf is rubish but it ent reali....so fnx nokia4 tha upgrade
If this phone had a low price on it and was identical to what it currently is no one would like it or buy it. Shallow people anyone?
First of all, those who bought this phone of the nokia 8800 origional version, hang you heads in shame ! The phone was only brought out to make quick profit on an over-hyped phone as as always gullable stupid people fell for it. Its a load of crap, i was given one for two months and stopped using it after 5 days and went back to the nokia 6230i that i had around the flat.
You know what's wrong with people's view on phones? People always complain about phones. We haven't found a perfect phone, true. But people have a knack of wanting every little thing.
"It hasn't got a good enough camera, no card slot, no 3G support, no radio, no EDGE, no bluetooth, it's ugly, expensive this and that", and the list goes on forever. For heaven's sake people, get your head clear. We can't have everything and we certainly can't afford everything.
Stop complaining so much. And to be more on the topic, I personally think this phone needs appreciation, even if it costs ridiculously alot. There's always a reason.
shut up people who dont like this phone (most of you probably dont have it and are just jealous!), this phone is amazing
It is true the battery life time is not the best feature in this product, but that's why NOKIA provide two batteries in the pack and also the deskstand (moreover the battery life time has been improved compare to the one on the Nokia 8800). Personally I prefer my Nokia 8800, but the Sirocco looks very nice and maybe just for the 2MP camera and the 128Mb memory I would change it....
I got used to charge my battery every 2 days and I still think the Nokia 8800 is the nicest mobile phone in the market !
