Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte review

 

Nokia's ultra-deluxe 8800 Series handsets return with a feature boost and a more refined design. And don't worry, they still cost the earth

The Sapphire is undoubtedly overpriced, but it’s hard not to admire the stunning craftsmanship and its newfound taste for features

Nokia 8800 Arte/Sapphire Arte

 

Every manufacturer secretly dreams of rolling out something like the Nokia 8800 one day. A premium solution with low production costs, tremendous image of a fashion-savvy phone and sales that are way beyond expectations. However, nobody has managed to...

The word œArte stands, like you probably have already guessed, for œart, which is a truly profound act on Nokia's part while it kept the 8800 number in place and thus put the new offerings in one line-up with their predecessors, on the other hand, for...

Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte

 

Nokia's latest handset in the 8800 premium series offers a reasonable features list in a stylish design, but this is only for the most demanding fashi...

Stylish design, sapphire gem, leather front and rear, superb build quality, included Bluetooth headset

Price, no memory card slot, controls, no extensive features list

The Sapphire Arte 8800 commands a price that would make even the most ardent fashionista baulk. Its huge asking price won't get you the most advanced features though.

Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte

 

Mobile phone companies have launched elegant and sophisticated-looking phones in an attempt to woo users to show off their mobile devices instead of placing it inside their pockets. The 8800 Sapphire Arte phone from Nokia certainly looks the part, but...

Construction ; Good sliding mechanism ; Simple menu ; Comes with carrying case and Bluetooth headset

1GB of memory may not be enough ; No built-in Wi-Fi ; Proprietary charging/docking ports ; No memory card slot ; Expensive

A slider phone that costs an arm and a leg. Page: 1 2 3 4 [5]

Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte Review

 

When I asked Nokia if I could review their 8800 Arte handset, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Some dumb phone that just looked a bit pretty, form and no function, a celebrity only famous for being rich? I'm certainly not the target of a phone like...

Nokia 8800 Sapphire Arte

 

The new Nokia Sapphire 8800 Arte brings 3G capabilities to the highly acclaimed Nokia 8800 series which features an elegant and sophisticated design. Other features include 3.2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, USB, 1GB internal memory and OLED 16 million...

In the second half of the year the release of a new device in the 8000 series is quite logical, but it will not bear any resemblance to Arte, the company develops several directions of the premium class. As far as the 8800 series is concerned, the...
