I have owned a genuine Vertu Ascent for the last few months and thought I would have my penny’s worth as it seems that people are quick to judge but have no idea what quality means. I need a phone, not a camera, music player, pda or any other gimmicks that are used to show off rather than function. Unfortunately it seems that a culture of get as much as you can for as little as you can is the new standard for most people but I was taught that if you can’t afford to buy with cash, you can’t afford it. This automatically leads on to; buy the best you can afford.
This is a phone that is built to the highest standards and will still be going after many other phones have died a death. It does what I want it to do, make and receive calls, no more, no less.
I also have a Rolex left to me by my father. He owned it for 15 years and I have owned it for the last 5. 20 years old, still going strong and no doubt will outlast me.
This is why people pay for quality. It last

Timmy, 11 Aug 2008Really? And here is the TRUTH: http://timmy9ine.wordpress.comi get one Ascent TI, its very good made, the keyboard lights and all like original. and the display graphic is very good. I really like the phone and use every day. I buyed this phone from vertuclone.eu, and i get it in 7 days to the Spain.
it is a great asset,a money saver,it is a very unique phone,i have the imitation of the veptu constellation gold it is WOW
Danish, 13 Jul 2008I think its amazing and is priced for its exclusivity..Anyone who doesn't have it can and will... moreanyone had experience with those fake vertus?
www.vertuclone.eu - some of those seems ok
i have got a vertu constellation in black,it is very good but i dont see why you need to buy the ascent when the constellation has better features
I think its amazing and is priced for its exclusivity..Anyone who doesn't have it can and will criticise it..
this is proof that you have to pay an obscene amount of money if you want to get something incredibly ugly
requirement :i want 8 megapixel camera in it,large display,640gb hard disk.jbl dual speaker.
let them enjoy the fruits of their labor.
for us, who, probably will never experience the luxury they're enjoying, we always want to maximize our money's worth with features and freebies. we will not pay for something that is so expensive yet offers few things.
what we dont know, they might be satisfied even if its just basic sms, mms, email thingy, but for personal reasons or satisfaction, they buy these stuffs.
anyways, phones with too much features might possibly make an employee less productive (:P).but im waiting for n96, im a pda-phone user, id like to try something new and fun.
Vertu ascent Ferrari edition is brilliant.
Specially the ENZO series.
its so easy to repair this phone just like fixing Nokia phones, Even it's having a complicated flexi.
In my dreams i will buy this phone.
In reality, i preffer to buy a N6300 phone.
I agree with the comment below me (JR)..if you can't afford this phone don't buy it, if you don't like it because it doesn't have enough features for you just don't buy it once again..However, I don't understand why you have to judge people who do buy these phones..the only reason that comes to my head is jelousy!
You dont realise how great it is to have money you yall just go to work everyday saveing money in CC Debt when the others close multi billion dollar contracts every month. So when you can have a lot of money i would like to see how your comments would differ.
you know what ppl out there against this phone are also so called crap because not all the specifications of this phone is complete cause compare this on nokia phones out there.. there are so many advantages of this phone that you don't know... this for BUSSINESS CLASS... maybe higher than buss. class.... sorry if i can't explain here the advantages of this phone that you don't know.
to all ppl that complain about features.... Im with u on that one haha. I have 8GB N95 and cant wait till N96 comes! This phone is for one main purpose: Showing off your status to the world. To show that you can do almost you want and to intimidate people with your richness. A good analogy for Vertu Phones: Vertu is to High Rich Class, while Nseries is for High Middle class ( Not counting any of the N7* models except for N76)
just simply stupid to be buying this phone..i dont care how rich your are..you might have alot of dollars and cents, but you dont have common sense.
For example, when you buy a designer product, it have to be in good/perfect quality. Just like if you buy a Louis Vutton handbag, the handbag have to be in good quality leather, and advertise to an extent that everyone knows its expensive, prestige, and luxurious.
Virtu Ascent, is a phone that only supports polyphonic ringtones, which is a technology backed 5 years ago. with the price of this phone, it should have hologram embedded to it!
secondly, it doesn't look as good as phones coming from Nokia, SE, Motorola or even Siemens. well if you like a designer phone, get a louis vutton nokia 7200 or the new motorola v3i D&G (Dolce & Gabbana) phone.
thirdly, It have no wireless functions, nor does it have touch screen or can't even read PDF or Word Documents correctly. Doesn't have voice recognition, mp3 player...for all those functions you can get a phone that does all that for only $1000 ...
So if you are buying this phone, and selling for that price..make it a better quality, better functions, or some better design that tells people straight away, that this phone worth every penny!
i agree with what this guy said. this phone is a piece of crap. n95 beats it
I'd love to buy a Ascent Ti. The phone is fantastic looking and looks quality with the range of materials used in the manufacture.
The issue however is not the price tag. I'd happily stretch to that. The issue is the lack of features. I use a Nokia n95 8Gb. A lot of users care about what the phone can do. I'd happily pay Vertu another £1000 on top of the existing price if they could make it do what my n95 does, and make it look so good? How about taking a Nokia n82 and squeezing it into a Ascent casing...Perfection!
Its that same ole same ole mobile phone story...
You have to choose. You can't have it both ways. Style or functionality. I can't comment on the concierge as I've never used it but it could potentially save me £300 a month on my existing service.
