I happen to have one of these marvellous phones. As I said it looks splendid but it hurts me to say, it's all that's got! And at this money, from the first day I bought it I only get dissapointed with it.
Do not buy it and save your money for the future phones (like Sendo), not like other stupids!
I love this phone its very pretty. i think you are very pretty as well luv dodgy dick
What exactly do you people mean when saying this phone is of bad quality? It's one of the sturdiest models there is, and one you are not too likely to have to take prepaired. Another thing: You sad morons cry because "it has no new technology in it". Umm, how about waking up, this phone is more than two years old already! It was one of the most advanced models when it was first released! But by all means, please go and get some more "reasonable" model like Ericsson A2618s (hahahaaa), I (and many others) am quite happy with my 8850 the best thing being not every poor idiot has the same.
Have purchased a 8850 two years ago. Good looking and that's it. Maybe nice to have but all in all its overpaid and the quality is not as good the quality of an older Ericsson (f.e. 788e) also the features are not up to date
I don't get it. Why does Nokia overprice it's phones so much? This phone doesn't have any new technology in it. It just tears your pocket apart...
this is the best phone out of NOKIA so far.... so classy and light in weight.... thumbs up for nokia !!! but now that it is quite a while, what phone will replace 8850?
this phone stinks! it smells of rotten eggs mixed with rotten bananas and grapes!
If you want class, elegance written on your face. This is the phone you must have!!!!
The best-looking phone on the market thats 4 sure. I had one and I didn't treat it very well. The case dented easily and the back cover was loose most of the time. My fat fingers were a pain in the ass when it came to pressing the tiny buttons.
But who cares? The phone is MAD looking, garaunteed to get you chicks. If you got the moola, get it but look after it. Don't throw it around like I did :)
Btw, I have opted for a 8250 cos it is more durable and the buttons are bigger. A great alternative to the 8850.
Heck, the phone costs between £250 - 300, but Its the best looking phone out there. If you've got the cash burning in your wallet - buy it. If not, buy it anyway. The screen is to die for.
This phone is the same 8200 series. It doesn't do anything different. The only difference is that it has dual mode. For the price however I would at like to have tri-band. Now as far as looks go I have changed everything on my 8290 to make it look unique. I've changed the faceplate the leds and even customized the screen with cartoon characters. If a silver cover can beat that that's fine. I just don't agree. Don't buy this phone because it looks good, it's simply not cost effective. I would like to advise you to buy because it works in the US and Europe but it's missing a the 1800mgz mode. So in conclusion don't buy this phone. It's great but cost over function should in the end prevail.
easy desmond.. let out that hate elsewhere. its really not that bad. in fact, its a pretty damn good phone. if you are looking for games, i suggest you carry a gameboy around with you. games arent supposed to be the primary function of a phone, this one like any other. and there is nothing wrong with the features, theyre nearly the same as any new nokia, nothing worthwhile missing. the screen looks superb, but in this area lies the one problem with the phone. i know 5 or 6 people who have this phone and the same thing that happened to me happened to each one of them. the screen starts to fade away, eventually disappearing. this is a major fault for a phone; im taking mine to be fixed tomorrow. despite this, i do love the phone. its feels so well put together. the small buttons really arent a problem unless your life depends on dialling a number in a quarter of a second. after all, if you want a small phone, its not going to have big buttons is it? looks slick, feels slick, features great. great phone.
Someone just loves writing reviews with other people's names. So - here is mine comment of the phone:
If you want to waste money , this is a really nice way to do it. This is just a very expenisve phone with a funky design, poor battery, and almost no extra functions . It doesn't even have the games you can find in every other nokia.
the 8850 is the best phone that i have ever bought even if before i had the 3310 but is the best looking out of the lot.
Beautiful phone but the sliding cover make it hard to press the three bottom buttons especially at the two corners.
