The most gorgeous phone I've ever seen, I've given it to my 10 year old because he doesn't call anyone, he has it for emergency use. The battery has to be charged at least twice a day. It's shockingly bad for any phone even if I'd paid £20 I'd be upset. NOKIA SHOULD RECALL THIS BEAUTIFUL TRASH (read more)

Let's face it, this is less a functional phone in the most up-to-date sense of the word, and rather a fashion item. As of the year 2000, by all *practical* accounts this phone was out-of-date before it was even released. Yet I would recommend it, and I do rate it at least 7/10 on value for money, because quite simply this phone is not aimed at the wider audience. The target market for this phone is not going to be concerned with handset cost. Besides the regular phone functions, what you are... (read more)

The Nokia 8800 is the worst and most expensive phone I've ever had. If you ring Nokia there is a option saying "if you are the owner of an 8800..." such are the problems with this handset. I was lent a loan phone (Nokia 1100) that although wasn't half as luxurious thoroughly thrashed the £600 8800 and only cost 20 quid! This phone is a joke, never again will I buy Nokia. (read more)

This is definitely the worst phone I have ever owned, after only five months the phone was constantly crashing and the battery life appeared to get shorter over time. I don't usually buy Nokia phones but was floored by the 8800's looks, I definitely regret that decision, the features are poor, the phone is practically faulty from day one and Nokia should definitely recall them.

This phone is a colossal disappointment. Despite its neat styling, it is littered with faults. Apart from its propensity to crash , often in the middle of a call, the keypad is poorly thought out: when writing text messages, the bottom three keys - 7. 8 and 9 - are hard to use because they are insufficiently clear of the slider. The camera is of such poor quality that it would have been better to leave it out altogether. It looks and feels nice, but so do a lot of other phones costing a... (read more)

The Nokia 8800 is a great phone to admire but personally I would have to admit not very helpful when it comes being practical.

This is a great phone! I'm thrilled I got it. It looks the business, and I don't know anyone else who has one!
I use my phone mainly, surprisingly, to make phone calls! I send a few texts now & then. I occasionally take a photo. I want to be able to sync my contacts with my e-mail app (Outlook & Notes). I want an alarm clock. That's about all of my main needs......I don't need/want a built-in espresso maker or surround sound system! This phone fits my needs perfectly.

This 8800 model should be recalled by Nokia and fixed. A decent battery would go a long way for starters and more memory. Memory should be external so one can put whatever they see fit in the phone. For the cost it simply is not worth it when you look at what it has. The screen is not that expensive to replace as you might think it was. Its just a phone rushed through the pipeline without a proper thought put into the battery lasting at all.
In this day of age you would expect a better and... (read more)

The battery life is on the Nokia 8800 is no use what so ever, even when you get a spare battery when you buy the phone. The charger tells you the phone is charged only to find it isn't. A lot of detail went into making the phone but not a lot went into making the battery last! You can record for over an hour but whats the point when the battery dies half way through it. Wouldn't recommend this phone to a friend its simply not worth it! (read more)

To sum up its a beautiful phone as long as the only thing you want to do with it is merely stare at it. I feel that Nokia have let themselves down with this one, its not practical, very unreliable and not worth the money. Save your money and buy a Sony Ericsson and buy a metal case. (read more)

The Nokia 8800 is simply the best looking phone ever made and as a recruitment consultant you can imagine that I use the phone a lot, however, I cannot express enough how shockingly bad this phone really is. If you are someone who has no friends or family who are likely to call, get one. If you expect to actually use the thing, don't. Do not even consider it. $1,000 US Dollars or £650 GB? It is not worth!!! (read more)

Overall, the Nokia 8800 is a great mobile phone. I am due an upgrade next month and NOTHING comes close. Everything else is either MASSIVE or too plastic looking. I hope someone comes up with something soon. The metal cover is hard as anything, and I have dropped it on many occasions and it's still in one piece. The glass is sapphire crystal, so minor knocks and scrapes don't touch it. The sliding action is to die for. Slide up to answer, and everyone still looks as the chrome dazzles them. (read more)

The Nokia 8800 mobile phone is simple to use. Don't spend £500 on this phone when you can get it on contract for £50. I saw how much this phone was, and I said "no way", as I don't have £500, so I searched on the net, as I really liked this phone and i wanted it. Anyway, I went to this site called Mobile Phone Shop, which I found really cheap, and it's a secure site. I'm now on contract, and all I pay is £35 a month with O2.

I would not recommend the Nokia 8800 mobile phone to anyone, as it is useless. The phone freezes when you make or receive a call, and you can't hear the other person.
The phone is only good looking and nothing more.
Another piece of rubbish from Nokia.
And the award for the worst phone goes to the Nokia 8800! (read more)

I wanted the Nokia 8800 mobile phone from day one, and I had to have it.
When I first got it, I couldn't wait to use it. About 3 phone calls later I'm on the 2nd battery, so not impressed so far, especially after going through the features. My very first phone did more!!
On day two the spring went on the sliding mechanism, so as you can tell I wasn't happy. It went back to Nokia that same day for repair.
So far, I've had it about 3 - 4 months, and it really is starting to annoy me, so... (read more)

The Nokia 8800 is a stunning mobile phone. It looks and feels expensive. Anyone who wants loads of gadgets including a 2.0MP digital camera, look elsewhere, as this just does enough, but it oozes style while doing it.
You can have MP3's as ringtones, download pictures and use them as wallpaper, and it also has great reception, even in areas where my old Motorola V3 on the Vodafone network would lose signal; this doesn't.
Although the keypad is small, after a couple of days it just seems... (read more)

The Nokia 8800 mobile phone is really, really bad value for money. This phone does not have anywhere near the amount of features you would expect, and the performance of the phone is not up to the price. Being one of the most expensive Nokia's available, this phone should have a better camera, far more memory and a lot more 'extras'. Not a good deal at all, although the design is outstanding.
This phone should be re-released with more stuff, or retailed at a lower price. You are really not... (read more)

The Nokia 8800 is a very cool mobile phone. Nice feeling to hold it, but it is over-priced. Everything is good except the inside of the phone. It's almost the same system as Nokia used 3 - 4 years ago! Don't try to use it when skiing on the slopes; most of the time it's too cold to get it to start. There are better and cheaper phones to buy, like the Sony Ericsson W800. (read more)

I love mobile phones, and so I HAD to have the Nokia 8800 as soon as I saw it. It is beautifully designed and feels lovely to use.

I would describe the Nokia 8800 mobile phone as a Playboy playmate. it is beautiful on the outside... You work out the rest!
There's nothing more this phone can do other than look good. It's a beauty, and a head turner.
Sit down with it for 5 minutes, then what?
No functions, poor camera quality; just like the Nokia phones of 2003. If you're on the move or a business user, the battery will cause you frustration.

I've now owned the Nokia 8800 for about four months. Overall it's a great mobile phone, but it has limited appeal and some annoying niggles. Depending on what you want in a mobile phone you will either love it or have no hesitation in choosing something else.

I set my heart on the Nokia 8800 after seeing it on TV. As a tight person, I wouldn't pay the daft price they wanted for this phone to start with. Cost came down enough that I could afford it. Am well impressed with the phone as it does all I need (memory card bit of an issue).
It's a quality phone that will last and retain its style. Would recommend to those who want a stylish phone but don't want a features packed phone. (read more)

The Nokia 8800 mobile phone is one BIG disappointment! After much anticipation, Nokia once again fail to deliver.
This phone is appallingly bad in the functions stakes. It just looks pretty, and don't we all want our phones to do more than just that?
It is completely overpriced. The software on it is feeble when compared to a Sony Ericsson, for example, the text messaging option when sending to people you text frequently, is simply a waste of time.
It will only attract magpies!!! (read more)

Got the Nokia 8800 for free with my contract. Would never pay money for a handset - certainly not this one.
The design is stunning, with the docking station and lights completing the package. It's probably three times heavier than most small Nokias and this feel nice - feels like you've got a quality device in your hand.
Having to live up to the 6230 and 8210 before that (the two best Nokias yet), the 8800 doesn't quite do it. On design terms it's miles ahead, but 8210 was simple and the...(read more)
