Most elegent, simple, and well crafted piece of equipment

Let me start off by saying this is not the best phone out in the market, nor is it the most advanced...but i would still rather have this than any phone out right now

I'm 22, have worked in cell phone sales and I've had this phone since Oct '08 and paid nearly $600 for it (a bit pricey) so I've had enough time with it to give a non biased review

CONs:
- no memory card slot, not a big deal beacause I have a decent music play list, a lot of themes and over 150 pics
- camera in dark is quite grainy
- fingerprint collector
- if you have stubby fingers, it is going to be hard for you to text
- No Flash camera

PROs:
- great and very responsive software
- has a lot of downloadable content available online for free
- decent reception, i have tmobile, have service practically everywhere
- good battery life, it runs out every other day
- bright screen even during sunlight
- great build quality (steel and glass), you can tell its a bit heavy
- camera is very good during the day and has editing features
- loud speakerphone, ring tones and great music quality, very clear
- connects with my bluetooth instantly
- looks and feels great

This phone has basic cell phone features, it is not feature-packed like a blackberry. you can send and receive email. Internet is basic and kind of slow. It has all the necessities (alarm, stopwatch, converter, games, media player, calculator, calender, translator, etc)

If you want a mini laptop, get a blackberry or iphone. If you are looking for a simple phone that looks and feels absolutely great, this phone is for you. But beware, since it is made of glass, this phone is not for people who are rough users or who drop their phones often. It comes with its own leather case and cleaning cloth to keep it maintained and scratch free.
Be careful when you order this online, there are a lot of fake ones out there, make sure it has a leather case, cleaning cloth, wrist strap, and a few other acc. those are the real ones

This is the best phone i ever used. If the Luna had more than 512mb it would be perfect. The phone had never froze not even once since I got it from June.

Pro

1.Excellent reception
2.Excellent call quality
3.User-friendly and fast interface
4.Very nice style
5.Mp3 sound good on speaker
6.Very good build quality

Con

1.128mb is little bit too low
2.speaker phone can be louder when you making a call

VAIN-ness

THE ABSOLUTE ONLY REASON TO BUY THIS PHONE IS BECAUSE A FEW OTHERS MAY KNOW WHAT IT COST (whatever that my imply) ...

Cons:
-does not show call duration while you're on a call ...
-features-to-cost ratio
-call quality-to-cost ratio
-memory-to-cost ratio
-BENEFINT-to-COST ratio (∑0/$$$$$$ = 0)

Pros:
-Given the price point and the specs, there are no pros to having this phone. Save yourself the money and get a nokia 6300 (if you MUST HAVE a nokia). It's essentially the same phone, it looks nice, has microsd slot, and costs around $200 (about 1/4 the price)
-Looks nice (but it doesn't look $700-nice)
-(IF you buy this from nokia they've bumped the original 1yr warranty up to 2 yrs, i guess they feel bad for ripping people off)

5 mins after i opened the box i had this empty feeling... Or maybe it was the feeling of just having been ripped off. Either way, i was on the phone with LetsTalk setting up an RMA.
Also, I dont understand why everyone is soo hyped-up about Nokias. The nokia UI SUCKS (series 40). S60 is nice but that doesn't belong to NOKIA (as everyone thinks), it's a Symbian product. And Symbian is partially owned by just about every phone manufacture out there...

Much better than 8801

Well, as i use this phone, i find myself impressed with its stylised glass front and ultramodern screen saver. The sound quality is exceptionally clear (like most nokia phones) although loudspeaker could be a bit louder.

The two only cons I can think of, is that it leaves fingerprints all over the surface of the phone and the number presses have to be backed out to clear the screen.

Outside of that, its camera, quality and functionality is a superior product.
