“The most gorgeous phone I've ever seen, I've given it...”

Written on: 28/09/2008

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 Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2007 by matt0smith (2 reviews written)

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 As of the year 2000, by all *practical* accounts this phone was out-of-date before it was even released.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 Full Review

Written on: 03/07/2007 by chrisyuk (45 reviews written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 18/05/2007 by samsungfan (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/03/2007 by lyndon1904 (1 review written)

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 Full Review

The Nokia 8800 is a great phone to admire but personally I would have to admit not very helpful when it comes being practical. The usage of the phone wouldn't be as bad if the price of the phone wasn't so high (Because I paid £600 for mine) then I would say, it isn't as bad people are making it out to be… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2007 by Gobbie (1 review written)

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.
It comes with a… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/01/2007 by 9of10 (2 reviews written)

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 more… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/01/2007 by 9of10 (2 reviews written)

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

9Of10's Response to leebofatty1's Review

Written on: 02/01/2007

If a manufacturer makes a faulty unit, it recalls the product and fixes it. So why haven't Nokia fixed the 8800 mobile phone?
<br/>Surely they have some idea that the battery isn't doing its job. Something has to be done.

The thing about the Nokia 8800 mobile phone is it's like the outside of a FERRARI CAR, but with the inside of a Ford Fiesta.

Written on: 24/08/2006 by Kdelaney (1 review written)

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 Full Review

If your stylish and like the finer things in life - then the Nokia 8800 is for you! If you want to show off to your mates and turn heads then this is it.. Even with the few bad points I must say it is the best phone I have had so far... I have had it for about 9 months and it works perfectly without a single scratch. I haven't lost interest in it and I still am very much in love with it! :)… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/07/2006 by hydrilboy (15 reviews written)

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 Full Review
