I can only rate this phone as a 5, as it's the only phone I have had.
Works a treat. Getting real beaten up look about it the alloy casing is worn & added personality. I've got no need to upgrade at all at the nokia 8850 continues to do the job very simply. I need another battery now (3rd one since new) as the charge does not last very long. Looks are classy & timeless. The buttons are very small but work well with firm large fingers as I have… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2008 by Lawrenma2 (31 reviews written)

I bought this phone a few weeks ago refurbished from eBay for £20, as a result of being fed up carrying around huge PDA phones for the past few years. Given the fact that it's 9 years old, you have to allow for lack of camera, colour screen, etc but this is the best phone around for someone who wants a light phone which is purely for calls and texting. Also looked exceptionally good for a phone of this age and would recommend this to anyone… Read Full Review

The Nokia 8850 gorgeous phone, I love mine to the point i've taken her apart and she just is so easy to maintain and repair - good original quality housings are expensive and lack quiet a few components like the battery in the key pad (Hood the time/date) and the chassis is made out of little less metallic plasticky material without the originals shine the sticker and the battery compartment right hand plastic strip in the frame of the battery compartment.

Poor OEM or fake easy cheap but lack… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/11/2003 by ycjs (6 reviews written)

The Nokia 8850 is the classiest mobile phone i've ever used. I simply love the slide which protects the keypad and ends the call.This phone comes with very basic features just like the 8210 though the price is way up there!The phone produces acceptable call quality though i experienced quite a number of dropped calls.Other than the display contrast problem which fades away sometimes,the display is clear and easy to read.The phone truly is in a class of its own and i find it a pleasure to have… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/07/2003 by Byron. (1 review written)

I used this Nokia 8850 mobile phone for about 2 years. I initially bought it for the stylish design, appealing to all. But as some say, the functions on this phone are standard. Nothing special. This phone is for appearance.

However i have no complaints about it. It looks good and does what u need it to… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/05/2003 by Will. (1 review written)

Before I started to use the 8850, I thought it looked pretty smooth with its modern aluminium cover, but as usage started, I relised that looks aren't everything. The Nokia website promises 'calls when you speak' but even if you shout when you are setting the voicetags, it comes out almost silent. The games can be addictive and fun as you play whilst sitting at the busstop, but they cannot compare to the likes of the 3410 and Space Impact. When you are speaking, there is an echo, which gets… Read Full Review

The reason why you're having problemns with texting is because 8850 and all new phone come with Predictive texting meaning it can predict what you're saying. Read the manual to understand how it works!!!!!!

“I've had this phone one and a half years now. I bought...”

Written on: 19/04/2003 by NickXX. (1 review written)

I've had this phone one and a half years now. I bought a new 6610 last week, but will continue to use the 8850 as a 2nd phone. Basically it looks amazing, I can't state this enough. Look after it and it'll look amazing for years to come - the brushed aluminium design will never grow old. Mine has 2 or 3 small scratches on it, but generally looks new.

As far as underneath the shell goes, it's an 8210 with white LEDs. Software is pretty old now, but has T9 text input, an irda port, calenendar… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/02/2003 by Tansfer. (1 review written)

Overall, I feel this phone is one of the classiest ones you can score. In regards to costs, it's expensive if you want to KEEP THE PHONE FOR A LONG TIME cause you got to pay for those cases etc. But if it's a short term thing, I still (as well as everyone else I know) that it's a much cooler phone than all those new bright ones. Little things make it a good phone, but to be fair, it lacks features of many of the new ones. (it is a much older phone though). If I could, i'd take the board and… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2003 by Lady ZJ. (1 review written)

Personally Nokia 8850 allows me save 5 text messages between the inbox and outbox after that it states there is no more space for text messages. The actual reception isn't as high as it advertised to be. Okay where the phones features isn't all that you tend to over look all that by the look of the phone and generally because not much people have this model in UK, so its rare with people… Read Full Review

This Nokia 8850 is the best phone I have ever used (got it for 3 years so far!). Reliable SW & HW, easy to use, handy and it even looks good! It's not the most featured mobile but it does what it does perfect.
Display failures are common, but may be solved by opening the mobile and cleaning the display contacts. Attention, you will loose your warranty by opening the device. Use a Nokia service centre to do so… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/09/2002 by Mickie. (1 review written)

I saw this Nokia 8850 mobile phone in the shop about 13 months ago. I had been looking for a phone to replace my old 6110 and there were other phones which had more features etc but i don't care about that - i want my phone to say something about me. So, rather than go for a drab 3310 or 3330 or 8210 which is what most went 4, i thought i'd b different and go 4 the sexiest phone on the market - my little annabelle (my pet name 4 my mobile!) I just can't fault it although she is in need of a… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2002 by Tidy Nokias. (1 review written)

The Nokia 8850, along with the 8890 is, for me, without doubt, the best mobile phone on the market.
The only negative points i could think of when asked above, were the reception sometimes isn't as good as it should be and it can get scratched easily if you mis-treat it.
More stylish than any other phone out there and being a Nokia, testing and making / receiving calls is a breeze as ever.

Forget all this DigiCamPhone phone junk, a phone should be made with 'calls & texting' in mind, which is… Read Full Review

For the price the Nokia 8850 mobile phone is, you expect more than the fact that not many people have them .. It is now pretty dated and has no great features.

A solid performer but if you want real style go for the Motorola V70 and if you want a solid performer stick to the Nokia 8210… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/01/2003

I'm don't agree with this rating, features are almost the same normally found in usual handsets, receptions is good, style is good, so overll rating must be 7 or 8 out of 10.
cheers
