Nokia 8800 Arte review: Art of seduction


Stainless steel and OLED screen: there's no way a handset with that kind of features will ever blend in with the crowd of handsets. Add the hefty price tag and you got the high-end biting the dust too, just like that. But then, there's always someone...

Looks ; Body made of the highest-quality materials ; 2" 16M color OLED display with QVGA resolution ; 3G ; 3 megapixel camera with autofocus ; Full-house retail package ; Decent battery life ; Fingerprint resistant surface on the back ; Turn-to-mute ;...

Poor legibility under direct sunlight ; Tri-band only ; No memory expansion ; Smallish display ; Expensive, believe it or not

Nokia has long stuck a pole into the ground of premium lifestyle. Ever since the original Nokia 8800 saw the light of day, the Finnish-based company has been the first choice for phones made of exclusive, highest quality materials. Exquisite and...

Nokia 8800 Arte Review


The Finnish manufacturer Nokia is the only one from the big boys, to offer a luxury line aside from the regular devices for the mass market. The phones from the 8800 series are very stylish quality products, aiming to distinguish their owner from the...

Take your pick, the Nokia 8800 Arte and 8800 Sapphire Arte both demand to be the center pieces of your tech fashion collection...if you can afford them.

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


Nokia's premium 8800 series offers a reasonable list of features in a stylish, metal and glass design. The chic 8800 Arte is almost identical to the N...

Stylish design, superb build quality, included Bluetooth headset

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

The 8800 Arte is a stunning handset to look at, but its exuberant price means you don't get much bang for your buck.

Nokia 8800 Arte mobile phone - Pocket-lint


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

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'.

Nokia 8800 Arte


If you're a person who'd gladly pay the extra for a Ferrari over a Ford, then the 8800 Arte may be exactly the phone you've been waiting for.

Solid build quality ; 3G connectivity ; Bluetooth stereo A2DP ; 1GB onboard memory

No built-in flash for camera ; No Wi-Fi, GPS or HSDPA ; Lack of expansion card slot

There's simply no denying there's art in this 8800. As fashion phones go the Arte far surpasses the garish Dolce and Gabanna handset from Motorola, or the popular LG Prada phone. Definitely not a phone for specification hungry tech-heads, but a...

Nokia 8800 Arte


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 Mobile Phone


Yes, that price tag really is correct. Nokia's most exclusive phone yet, the 8800 Arte must be for those who move in the same circles as Daddy Warbucks. This elegant, minimalist phone is very much a luxury item. Beautifully crafted from glass...
