Phone Information

The Nokia 8800 Sirocco is an upgrade of the Nokia 8800. It now has a 2.0 megapixel camera instead of the 0.5 megapixel one. The internal memory has also been upgraded fromfrom 64Mb to 128Mb. Whats more there is also an FM radio, MP3 player and expandable memory.


It may be slightly thicker than the 8800 but this is not a problem as it is still a small phone. There is a small change in the design of the keypad and handset case. The battery life of the old 8800 was a problem so Sirocco battery life has been improved.


The display is a 208 x 208 pixel display with 262,000 colours, there is no 3G function though, but all in all this is a great looking and smart phone.

Review by: S.Boxall From: England On: 5th June 2007
I ended up with the 8800Sirocco as an insurance replacement for the original 8800. The 8800 was classy, solid, reliable and a good phone but (i) had terrible baterry life (less than a day) and (ii) a useless camera (though it is a phone and not a camera).


The Sirocco edition is similar (I did prefer the stainless finish of the 8800 and you will need the little leather cloth to keep polishing Sirocco's body, but the battery life is double what it was - I can get 2 days typically now. The camera is also better (not great) and it still has a fantastic solid feel. The bluetooth headset with it is a delight and much better than Nokia's first bulky attempt.


The firm ware is much better and the software actually works with the Sirocco - the original was a waste of time linked to a PC.


Expensive but if you want a phone to live with worth while.

Bought this mobile after reading lots of reviews and I am impressed by what I have. It looks cool but does lack some functions I would like.

Having had the 8800 for some months now I can tell you that if you want a mobile that looks the business then this is the one for you. Whoever if you want a mobile for more than just looks, look else where.

The Nokia 8800 sirocco is a very attractive looking mobile phone but I have found that the features are limited and the batttery life is short especially as this was not a cheap phone for me to buy. I think next time I will get a phone with lots of features and good looks like the Nokia N73 or the Samsung E900. Rating: 2/5

I love the look of this phone, the 8800 does everything I need it to do but the battery life is not the best.
