Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte


Yes. The Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte is a beautifully crafted handset, but it comes at a price.

The package also includes a cleaning cloth and a nice pouch into which the phone fits a little too snugly. Trust me, you will look a chump fiddling to get the phone out of its case rather than oozing aspirational, stylish, ubercool vibes.

Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte review


Nokia latest ultra-deluxe blower now comes with a bullet-proof titanium finish. But will it be shot down by the luxury competition?

A wonderfully engineered phone that’s still too lacking in features to warrant the outlay

The Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte is crafted from high-quality materials and comes with a 16-million colour OLED scratchproof screen. That means it should not only be super sharp and crisp, with colours represented…

Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte Review


"The handset has 3G connectivity browsing the web should be speedy enough."

The handset has 3G connectivity so you shouldn't find browsing the web too slow and means you can also take advantage of the built-in Mobile TV.

Nokia Carbon Arte 8800 review


The Carbon Arte is the third member of Nokia's Arte premium phone collection and the most expensive yet…

Expertly built, stylish design, fluid slider and internal memory hike

Still overpriced, with limited memory and only a slight feature upgrade

The most stylish and well built Arte phone, and one of the more feature rich premium phones. But not enough bang for the bucks.

Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte review: Carbon copy


Ask not what your phone can do for you. It's Nokia Arte, folks, so the question is who you need to kill to have it. Exquisite materials, sophisticated slider design and state-of-the-art finish are doing their best to camouflage...

Yells expensive (and it does cost an arm and a leg) ; Body made of the highest quality materials ; 2-inch 16M-color OLED display of QVGA resolution ; 3G support ; 3 megapixel camera with autofocus ; Full-house retail package ; Decent battery life ;...

Smallish display with poor sunlight legibility ; Tri-band only ; No memory expansion ; Costs an arm and a leg ; Below-par camera performance ; No video calls

But hey, we never held that against the Arte series. That Arte tag is just a sin tax and there's obviously people out there that can live with it. Cast in the same mold as its forerunners, Nokia Carbon Arte is topping the familiar OLED screen, 3G and 3...

Nokia 8800 Carbon Arte Review


Did you see the word 'Arte' in the title? You did? Does it ring a bell? That is the name of the most expensive product in the Nokia catalogue – the only major company on the market that offers such exquisite models. The 8800 series of the Finnish phone...
