Nokia 8800 Arte review

 

A classy slider from Nokia,but is its beauty only skin deep?

High quality design and build ; Heavyweight metal and glass construction ; 3.2-megapixel camera ; 1GB internal storage ; 3G connectivity ; Luxury package includes sleek Bluetooth earpiece, desk stand and leather pouch

High price ; No memory card expansion support ; No Wi-Fi ; Heavyweight build = heavy in pocket ; Camera lacks flash ; Mid-tier features on high-end phone

A well-built and sophisticated phone, but it's hard to justify the hefty price tag when everything else in this device is so basic

Nokia 8800 Arte mobile phone

 

If you're like the majority of the phone-buying public and haven't got the wonga to afford the obscenely expensive Vertu phones, then Nokia's own select band of premium handsets have proved a godsend. Admittedly, the likes of the 8600 Luna and 8800...

High grade build quality and elegant minimalist design, slide action is still the best in the business, decent feature line-up

No expansion plan for the internal 1GB flash memory, high asking price

The superior build quality of Nokia’s 8800 series has never been questioned but its feature line-up always felt like an after-thought. The 8800 Arte goes a long way to tackling this frustration. Not only is it the most design refined of the 8800 posse...

Nokia 8800 Arte

 

Despite the expense (and the odd sapphire thrown in), is Nokia's 8800 Arte actually worth it?

In an interesting first, you can mute the phone when a call is coming in simply by turning it face down on the table. That is great psychology: ‘No, I don't want to talk to you, and actually I don't even want to see that you are calling'.

The metal casing of the phone is made by seamless method, and the display is protected by glass (when other phones traditionally use plastic). Nokia 8800 Arte is convenient to hold in the hands, its keyboard is made in such a way that virtually...

Nokia 8800 Arte

 

Nokia 8800 Arte is a mobile phone by Nokia. It is a relatively small phone with dimensions of 109 mm x 45.6 mm x 14.6 mm, 65 cc, and weighs about 150 grams. The phone is equipped with a 240 x320 pixels screen with scratch-resistant glass. It boasts of...

A symphony of understated elegance and neat touches, from the illuminated keypad to the solid sliding action, the Arte oozes quality. Nokia 8800 Arte is tagged with Nokia, 3G and mobile phone. Select a tag (Nokia, for example) to find everything on The...

Nokia - 8800 Arte

 

If you think paying more than £700 for a mobile phone is a bit much, then stop reading right now. The Nokia 8800 comes in two versions, and £700 is the least you'll get away with ...

If money is no object you might consider this handset, but even those with pots of cash might find the features they get for the outlay here somewhat below par.

Nokia 8800 Arte review

 

We review the Nokia 8800 Arte, a luxury 3G mobile with a mouth-watering design and high-end build quality. But is it enough to entice big-spenders?

Sharp, attractive design ; High quality materials and excellent build quality ; 3G connectivity ; 1GB internal memory ; Luxury extras, including sleek Bluetooth headset

No HSDPA or Wi-Fi ; 3.2-megapixel camera has no flash ; No expandable memory card support ; No standard headphone socket ; No stereo earphones supplied ; No 3G face-to-face video calling

Nokia's luxury mobile delivers a high end design with excellent build quality, but features and functionality don't justify the hefty price tag

Nokia 8800 Arte

 

The 8800 Arte is satisfyingly solid and heavy and its constructed from the finest smoked glass and composite metals. With the slider shut, the 8800 is minimalist chic

It's a stunning-looking phone that's made from the finest materials.

It's expensive, it's heavy, the battery is poor and there's no expandable memory slot.

Despite its shortcomings, the 8800 Arte is so beautifully made, you could forgive it (almost) anything. Until you drop it on your foot
