If you have never held a Nokia 8800 handset, you are missing out on one of the most tactile phones ever. It is also a thing of beauty. Introduced in 2005 it followed in a tradition of luxury Nokia handsets.
The phone's case was made of high quality stainless steel, the 8800 weighed in at 134 g
An iPhone 5s is 112g to give you an example.
The ball bearings used in the case no doubt contributed to the reassuring weighty handset. I understand they were of aeroplane standard....
I have owned two 8800's. I had one stolen in The Elephant, and gave one to a friend as a gift.
They are impossible to live with. When fully charged and off into the world, you have just enough power to text your wife and tell her your phone's going flat.... But that's sometimes not a bad thing. .
It came with a desk charger which glowed blue like a cyborg, and I'm sure a spare battery, the idea was that one was always on charge.
I will get another one day, it's an open and shut case 😊
