Nokia 8600 Luna


Is this fashion statement worth the $800?

Solid call quality ; Attractive design

Expensive ; No expandable memory ; Short battery life

Nokia Luna 8600 (unlocked)


Though we admire Nokia for never being afraid to try a new and daring cell phone design, we must admit that the results aren't always satisfactory. Take, for example, the Nokia 8800. Sure, it's shiny and pretty, but the cramped keys were frustrating...

The Nokia Luna 8600 has an attractive design, solid call quality, and a decent feature set including stereo Bluetooth, a music player, and voice commands

The Nokia Luna 8600 has low talk-time battery life and a cramped keyboard. Also, its photo quality and speakerphone performance were poor, and it lacks an expendable memory slot

The Nokia Luna 8600 is a beauty with good call quality, but we didn't fall for its cramped keyboard and its poor speakerphone quality.

Nokia 8600 Luna review: Cast in glass


The Nokia 8600 Luna is keen to disarm and seduce. The unconventional materials used, the creative design, the rather practical set of accessories are hard enough to resist. Plus, the Luna is so largely unaffordable that it's tempting. This pretty much...

Exquisite display ; Excellent response ; Solid construction ; Exotic materials

High price ; No memory card ; Mediocre camera, poor video recorder ; Lack of 3G support ; Non-standard connector at this point

The family of luxurious Nokia handsets gets bigger. Prepare for steel, glass and an exorbitant price. Near flawless performance when it comes to the mundane must-have features, and embarrassingly mediocre functionality. But then again, an 8-series...

Nokia 8600 Luna Review


The 8600 Luna is the high-class phone of Nokia that shows off with design but has limited functionality, typical for a mid-range phone.A slider reminding of the 8910, this one uses stainless steel and smoked glass for semi-lucent slider that covers the...

Review: Nokia's 8600 Luna


I'm not a car person by nature, more of an any-cab'll-do city-dweller, but I was stopped in my tracks recently by a $200,000 Bentley. It gleamed, black and silver, as its classic British proportions stretched over most of Baltimore Avenue in...

The Luna 8600 has some multimedia functions. A 2 megapixel camera is on board as well as a low-resolution video recorder. The phone does have a music player, with impressive external speakers to boot, but there is no memory card slot, so you'll have to...

Review: Nokia 8600 Luna


Nokia's top of the line fashion phone is the 8600 Luna, a device that makes use of smooth lines and real tinted glass to set itself apart from the pack. Our man Jin takes the Luna out for a spin to see how it handles in this hands-on review.

The sales package includes a data cable that can be used to hook the Luna up to your desktop computer for data synchronization with Nokia's PC Suite. It can also be used to charge the phone, which is great for business travelers, as they will not need...

The Nokia 8600 Luna brings with it an expensive price tag, but sports a unique and quaint design symbolizing personality and status.

Nokia 8600


Nokia 8600: Nokia is stepping up a lot on TV commercials and roadside signboards. It is obvious the company is spending very much on the marketing side. Not only that, the cell phone manufacturing guru is also coming up with unique cell phone names and...

The overall performance of this fashioned phone is average considering its huge price which range from $900 to $1000.

"small footprint - good quality"


Truly portable due to its size with good sound

Covers over the battery are tricky to put back on for me
