Decent specs and nice 720p screen ; Half the price of the $10,700 Vertu TI ; Titanium body is durable ; Sapphire screen is unscratchable ; 13-megapixel camera does its job

The Constellation is half the price of the Vertu TI and is a much better phone, but at $5700 it lacks the crazy Concierge service and flash that some might expect in a luxury device.
