I just bought a Ascent and love my phone! Nobody uses, wap, 3g and all those crazy extras. On the vertu you can call, send sms's and for the most complicated people you can recieve and send emails. In my opinon it looks even better then the signature! Why buy a rolex when you can buy a vertu? A rolex will tell you time, but a vertu will tell you time and let you call people :)
I purchased this phone via the Chamber of Commerce on a special deal £200 off. I like the phone very much.
I have the Silverstone Limited Edition version. It reminds me of the gentlemans era of F1.
My friend Pertulia dislikes the phone altogether questioning it's relevance for the price. But I think one gains more pleasure from possesion that many things in life. I own this phone as it was available and so too was the money.
The concierge option is excellent. I used it once to test it's worth. When I went to Monte Carlo last week, my daughter Mia-Alicia used it to ask which number to place last chip on, they laughed and said put it on Even. IT DID! - She doubled her money and brought her own.
Excellent phone. Don't be ashamed to buy it and have people put you down. It makes me happy to own it, it will with you too.
Great phone. Exclusive which is what i have to have. really turns heads! also concierge service is also great. and all the people who are complaining about people who can auctually buy this phone get over it. it is well worth what you get
wow...you are rich and you have some really rich friends as well. what with the red arowana and the japanese koi..i wish i had that money
sorry...indeed it`s an exclusive phone,and it`s not forppl like me & you,but,my god,at this price,pamela anderson would have to be stuck on it!
if you can afford this phone you should be able to afford an mp3 player 8 megaspixel digital camera a laptop and other gadgets u shouldn't need features..in bought an 8800 bcoz i like the design the design of this phone is too simple though i knew the materials is good
guys, imagine, now u've got loads of money, u can buy 6 banglows, 12 benz S-Class, own ur private plane, but ur using a nokia 3210, ppl would defenately laughing at u... well, the phone is pricy because of the material... have u ever saw phone with diamond, sapphire, ruby, leather, platinum, titanium, stainless steel ?? If u cant afford the phone, don't get jealous with those who can afford it and said they're stupid... my own opinion, those who can afford the phone are smater than you are, because they can make money more than you !
I have a vertu ascent and ppl laugh at me for buying this phone.But when i ask them back why do you own a red arowana for the same price? Or a japanese koi for price of a Vertu signature or a high end hifi set with gold cable when a cheap japan made mini component sound the same or a film type camera with lens n flash tat cost thousands of dollars when a simple cheap digital camera only cost hundreds??? At least i know my vertu can make phonecalls and save my life 1 day in an emergency!!:-))
Are you then the first one to ever own one of these phones as well? Oh please. Do you also wait in line for the first day of the sales to get a bargin? This phone does what it says on the box. It works as a phone. If the price is high, it's because of the cost of production and it's "supply and demand". It looks like a heavy candy bar nokia phone. You can like it, hate it or be neutral, but it's a reliable phone, the acoustics are great and it has a concierge service. Great for those who need it.
I amthe first person to post a comment aboput this phone....its ugly and looks expensive gosh it looks stupid and damn expensive i saw it trafford centre and didnt understand why was it so expensive
hi i have the blue version of this phones it feels really good to the touch and is sturdy. the sound quality is really good, and the concierge service is awesome, i call them all the time for anything from pizza to plane tickets, and they are really friendly people, although the phone doesnt have super high end features i still love it.
Expensive is a relative term. Are you aware that there are wrist watches worth US$3.000.000? And cars worth US$12.000.000? These phones are objects of desire and nothing more. They appeal to those who can appreciate the finest things in life so stop whining about the price. If they weren't so expensive they would lose all their exclusivity. I have a black Ascent and I'm always looking forward to touching it and feeling this impecable sense of quality. If you can afford it, go for it. Forget about the features. Do you REALLY need them?
Honestly speaking this phone is a well made piece of art. just like a watch, Rolex for example (not my fav brand tho). would you laugh at ppl who wear Rolex? and...have u seen someone with good status wearing a G-shock to an event?
buy it when u need it, as for me...the time will come. :)
u get a benz cuz of the quality and the extra features a normal car doesnt have (vw) not cuz its only luxury this vertu does nothing but make ppl laugh at you for wasting 10k$ the only cool thing isthe back side the leather
i bought in 2 diffrent color, basicly it is just a phone, but it give u more face/class when ur meeting some important people/client...basicly that just it...
same with car...toyota or benz, it a car, it take me from a to b... some company need their top exec to ride nice car because it represent their company class....
vertu is a sub-company of nokia which is focused on making phones used with the finest materials available. it is a luxury phone (like that of a car) and must never be judged by its lack of features. the money spent here goes to the ruby bearings, finest leathers, and liquidmetal which is toughest than aerospace metals. People who simply cannot afford the phone should stop whining about it being a waste of money because every centavo spent is centavo well spent on this phone. i have a problem though, it is currently unavailable here in the philippines and a few reviews were made. is there an owner out there? where did you buy it? Vertu Ascent pls..
