Nokia 8800 Arte Review
Besides it being very well constructed, Arte performs very well in technical aspects also. The phone runs smoothly without blocking and the operations and the commands are executed pretty quick.

We were positive even after the sound tests were finished. When you speak, your voice is heard loud and clear. In the reverse situation, when you are a listener, the sound is worse, but still above average.. The volume is not that high, and the voices are somewhat monotonous with a constant background noise.

The loudspeaker was average with the voices in both directions being sharp and monotonous, but it was loud enough for a normal conversation.

According the official data, the battery provides up to 3 hours of talking time and has a 300 hour life in standby mode. After three days, including 90 minutes of calls and 6 hours of playing games, the battery gave up.


Nokia 8800 Arte and Sapphire Arte are two really, modern “masterpieces”, like the manufacturer says. With their extremely classy design, and solid construction, both are attracting the eyes of the crowd. When you have Arte/Sapphire Arte in your hand, it makes you look not only classy, but confident. Despite the good sound quality during a call, the last entries to the 8800 series offer interesting options, such as the clock activation or the muting.

If you are the kind of person who wants to demonstrate class and prosperity, and are looking for a good phone, do not hesitate to get the Nokia 8800 Arte. Well, if you think it looks too modest for you and you are looking for something more flamboyant, aim your vision at the rest of the “big shot” phones of the manufacturer like Sapphire Arte, Luna or 8800 Sirocco.
