Nokia 8600 review
| ||Review: May 2007
Last updated January 2008
In a nutshell: If you liked the 8800 Sirocco, you will love the 8600 Luna.
Released on 30 May 2007, the Nokia 8600 "Luna" is a stunning black slide-design phone with looks reminiscent of the equally expensive 8800 Sirocco phone. The body is made of stainless steel, with a smoked glass sliding cover to protect the keypad when not in use.
Our first impressions of the 8600 are good. The 8600 manages to look more sophisticated than the Sirocco - it's a more futuristic appearance with less bling. The stainless steel body and the solid 140g of weight make the 8600 a good phone to hold in your palm (if you don't mind carrying a phone this heavy.) The smoked glass cover looks suitably mysterious, but you can access many of the phone's functions using the exposed exterior buttons even with the phone closed. Slide the glass down and you will see a neat keypad, that in our opinion is a nicer keypad to use than the Sirocco's - it's less fiddly, especially for man-sized fingers. The display is far superior to the Sirocco's screen too. It has a high resolution of 240 x 320 pixels and a stunning 16 million colours, and is very easy on the eye.
Inside, the phone is very well featured too, although not at the cutting edge of technology. The camera has 2 megapixels and performs rather averagely when compared with other camera phones in the over-£200 price range. There's a music player and an FM radio too, which is nice. The 8600 is compatible with an (optional) Bluetooth wireless headset. The music player is a handy feature but won't ever replace your iPod as there is insufficient memory. The internal memory of 128 Mbytes is sufficient to hold around 30 songs only and cannot be expanded with a memory card. Connectivity is good: as already mentioned the 8600 supports wireless Bluetooth connectivity, and can also handle USB. Usefully it's a quadband phone, so you can use it anywhere in the world, and battery life is reasonable.
In summary, we feel that this is an excellent alternative to the 8800 Sirocco phone - it costs about the same, and it's going to be just as exclusive. In many ways it's a better phone with an improved LCD screen, a better keypad and the benefit of quadband. On the negative side it lacks a memory card slot and is rather heavy (just like the Sirocco), but the Nokia 8-series phones are about looks and exclusivity first and the 8600 offers both of these. The new Nokia 8800 Arte is even better and even more expensive!
Nokia 8600 features include:
- 2 megapixel camera
- Video camera
- Display: 16 million colours, 240 x 320 pixels
- Music player
- FM radio
- Polyphonic ringtones / MP3 ringtones
- Messaging: SMS, MMS, email
- Java games
- WAP, GPRS, EDGE
- Web browser
- Memory: 128 Mbytes
- Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB

Had nokia Luna nearly three years now and cannot find a phone anywhere near as good! The style is unique and very high class. The only downside is battery life - getting about two days out of it - perhaps a new battery will solve this. An exceptional phone

As lovely as the phone looks, no flash is a let down. I'm rather clumsy so both screen and cover have suffered, this may have added to the sound too. The built in browser would not allow some well used sites, I've had to install a seperate browser for this. I'm not a great fan of nokia and will be going back to sony after 4 months with my luna. Stylish look, thats the only selling point for me.

very bad experience. i liked the phone form the first sight bought it, and problems started next day. i was having a difficulty with network, and several times, the phone was restarting just by itself, whil i was talking on it. brought it back to the shop, they said it might be a SIM card problem, went to get a duplicate of my sim card, problem was still there. shop got it and repaired it for 2 weeks. ad guess what: same problem. i had to give it back to the shop after one month.

Ive had my phone for six months now and i can't think of any phone that has been better for me. My 8310 may be close but no cigar! Ha ha. Seriously though I love everything about it, I've never had any problems, the battery has been great and so has the reception. My only complaint would be the terrible case that you get with it which tookabout two weeks to fall apart. All in all a great bit of kit.

Absolutely love this phone it looks totally awesome, the build quality is superb. i have no regrets from switching from my old sirocco phone 7 months and had no faults. it does what it needs to do - make calls, receive calls and texting ! if u want a complicated phone that does everything then go get a laptop ( you can do much more with a laptop then u can with a mobile phone , or something or want to take a half decent photo or video clip then use a proper camera, or if you want to play games on it then go get a PSP !! Well done to Nokia for producing a stylish 8 series range of quality phones !!

I love this phone, had it since June 2007 and now can get a free upgrade - actually have said the wife that she can have a phone, I cannot see anything that I would rather have to the 8600. Only minor niggle is the camera - although I have a digital camera and only use the phone camera about once a month. This phone is cool, different and classy. Get one now!

I have had the Luna for 3 months now, got it second hand from ebay! Purely fantastic phone if you are a lover of the 8 series. Does what the eight series is designed for... a touch of class and makes perfect calls and sends perfect text messages. Looks a million dollars. For features it is somewhat limited but thats fine for me, if you want more features with a plastic cheaper feel go for the N series. Battery I find very reasonable much better than the first 8800's. Text messages I find easy to type and fast even though it is a small keypad. Be sure to buy this phone!!! :-D

Bit of a mixed bag to be honest this phone. Amazing looks and build quality is fantastic. Battery life not half as bad as the idiots in phones4u told me. However ive owned the phone since october 07, and since about 3 months ago nearly every conversation ive had has resulted in the phone cutting out and turning itself off. Oh well maybe one day they will make a phone that everyone gives 5/5. or maybe im just bitter because i dropped it last night and the glass screen is smashed, could be, yeah it is!!

So sorry to hear that Dolly and Louise didn't find the Luna good!!!
Is it me or just women moan about this handset!!!???? See as for the
phone being heavy, yes it does weigh that little bit heavier because
it's unique!!! That is one of the reasons why I brought it! It has style
and grace. Seriously guys, this is the ultimate phone from Nokia in
terms of build and quality! As Dolly says she her battery runs out quickly,
I seem to manage 2.5 days with mine on the standard battery supplied
with at least 1 hour talk time per day with 10 text messages as well!
As for Louise experiencing the phone switching off, you will find this
if your with Orange / T-Mobile as they use their own software and muddles
Nokia's original! As for signal strengh, I have NO problems at all except
when last year I went to Cornwall and was in Lizard Point right down
the South West in the middle of nowhere! Other than that I have always
had signal! I am so disappointed to go back and read peoples poor rev
iews especially the poor battery life! Seriously guys n girls try draining
the battery down the first 3times to get the optimal performance and
when charing every so often try draining at least once a month and you
will find that your battery life will increase! Hope this helps! I'd
give the Luna TOP MARKS! Well done Nokia!

I've had my Nokia 8600 for about 5 - 6 months now. Aesthetically, the
phone is a beauty however, functionally, it falls below expectation.
1. Charging Point: The charger / charging point is unique & thus difficult
to source chargers in the event that you leave homw without it. 2. The
battery runs out quickly. 3. Later on, software issues comes in - you
cannot assign ringtones to contact / edit contact profile etc. You get
operation failed display 3. The games are not really interactive. Wished
it was compartible with other nokia series. 4. I've tried to update
the phone's firmware to no success. Maybe it's my phone that's 'perculiar'
but i've not really enjoyed it!. In fact, i've got myself a Nokia E65
which I find more fantastic.

Had this phone now for almost a month and at first I had second thoughts
of retrning it back but it worked out for me. I had the N95 before this
and I was not able to use all the features of theat phone (just text
& calls). The glass cover of the Luna is just so beautiful, you can
watch the keypads "pulsate", just so sweet, the screen is superb, very
clear. Battery lasts 2 days for me. The only downside is the weight..
140 + grams...but it does not matter...it's just so beautiful. (The
Nokia 8910i still tops my list).

the phone are also brilliant. The phone definitely better than the iphone
and the N95 ( i actually sold my N95 to buy this) the n95 is for proper

I had this supplied to me on insurance as a 'similar replacement' for
my fantastic 8800 Sirocco which was damaged recently. I think it is
a capable phone but has been chavved up to appeal to the fashion market
at the expense of build quality whereas the Sirocco was simply refined
class. The screen has three bright faulty pixels and the camera lens
is offset/wonky in it's square recess. Also it is not too good in weak
signal areas. A disappointing substitute for Nokias real flagship phone
- the 8800.

opposite. the luna has the mp3 funtion which when used doeent kill the

Phil, Check the box as a case is provided with the handset ! People
talk about battery talktime/standby life and rightly so , as with no
juice in the battery what use is the fone. What needs to be apparant
tho is how you personally use the handset in your daily lifes. I use
it for talking and texts mainly so I get 4-5 days out of mine. Although
someone using it for mp3/games as well as calls and texts will experiance
a more limited charge. Leaving bluetooth on or using the alarms will
shorten it too. Also limited network coverage and weather conditions
will make the fone work harder to maintain signal. Watching the keypad
lights glow may look nice but is an obvious drain as well as the screensavers
etc. After the 4-5 charge your battery will be at its optimum. I made
a review earlier and gave 4 stars as I had to take time to see how the
battery works in my lifestyle, hence this 2nd post and 5 stars.

Would not recommend this handset. Had it a week and am changing for
a Samsung. When you try and send a text you have to select who you are
texting first, then your text (this bugs me). The slide at the bottom
gets in the way, especially if you are trying to text quickly. And I
find the predictive text a bit rubbish. Best quality about it is that
it looks good.

Just got my phone, features are pretty good but i tried to put music
on it and when it got to the third track it said i hadn' enough memory.
In the above information it says up to 30 songs. Another let down is
the alarm, u can only set it once where as my previous phone u cud set
as many as u wanted. O and i thought a case wud have been included in
the box as wel.

feel this phone is lacking quality for the price range.i splashed out
over £250 to get this and it does nothing more than my k800 ,that i
had previously.it occasionally switches itself off too.i would not say
its a bad phone but for the price range,i would go for something cheaper
that does everything you want.

I agree with Lee who posted on 25/7/07. I too have just purchased the
Luna and on 1st impressions im pleased with it. The build is solid,
and nothing like some other handsets in the market place that feel like
they could crumble in your hand. Nothing too new on the specs that is
supplied with other Nokia's. Stable interface and the old tried and
tested menu system. The case is a nice addition too. I owned the Nokia
8800 before this and felt it time to move on. No regrets. Only thing
to really test is the batteries call and standby time. Hence my rating
of 4 stars at the moment.

The 8600 Luna is a mobile what make exactly what a phone must do: making
and receiving calls, send and receive sms. But Luna makes all that with
STYLE. So, if you want style and build quality, you must pay, is simple.For
people who need 5mpx camera, 2gb memory,wlan, etc, there are many others
phones at half or less then half price, but without style and feeling,
just common phones. PS: please excuse my english, i"m german.
