    Hey all,

    This is my first post here, so, moderators, I beg your pardon, if this topic has been discussed already, couldn't find it anywhere.

    I've stumbled across this magazine ad a few days ago regarding Vertu phones. Basically they are the type that are considered REALLY luxurious ... and REALLY expensive .

    My question is: are they really worth the sky-high price? They seem to be rather basic in terms of functionality, except for the international concierge service, which, IMO, seems rather useless.

    Any ideas guys? Opinions?

    Thanks for your answers,
    MastaG

    I've been looking around and found 2 similar sites selling like second hand or used Vertu phones or something, not sure, but they damn cheap. What do you guys think:

    Replica Mobile Phones: Vertu, Nokia, iPhone at a price you can afford

    I think the second site sells fake ones. Are they good?

    I didn't visit the site, but obviously based on their URL, they are fakes. Fakes and replicas are never a good thing, stay far away from them.

    As far as Vertu's are concerned, the average price is usually between $15k-$20k , so if you see one for less than a $1000, it's obviously a scam.

    Thanks for the heads up, man!

    Why are fakes not good? Of course I reckon they are not made of gold like the originals and no real diamonds, but spending $15-25k on a phone is not normal. On the other hand if I like the shape, the style, and stuff, why not go for it? I'm ready to buy one online from the Lux Replica site, I already know now that I won't get real jewels and stuff. What else will I 'not' get?

    BTW, been looking around the e-Market for the originals - all Vertu phones come without cameras, is that true? Cus the Vertu replicas have the option of getting the camera!

    Thanks for your feedback again!
    Peace.

    I took the liberty, and risk perhaps, of ordering a replica one online from here: link removed - the V8, quoted at a little less than 300 bucks including shipping.

    What was promised: a TFT LCD (262,000 colors); English, French, German, Russian, Arabic, Thai, Vietnamese, Melayu Languages, MP3 and MP4 player, 2.0 M camera (the original has no cameras, I know, but wtf, if I can get a 5000 bucks worth Vertu clone with a CAMERA, unlike the original, why not? hehe), and other standard stuff.

    They did go a little low on the memory - 128 megs. On the other hand, if my 4Gb iPod is laced with all the music and videos I love, the fact [128 MB] seems to be an 'enlightner' rather than a drawback.

    I got my V8 the other week.
    After having had read all the stuff written here I gotta admit that I got a little discouraged and at some point thought that I'll get a piece of junk...

    ..But no, what I got seems to be pretty amazing! It's like the real deal - it feels cold as it's metallic, it's heavy, as it's supposed to be and it shines!

    It's damn identical to the original (though I've never held the original in my hand). Hehe, guess what, it even makes calls and receives SMS, rofl (I was scared it wouldn't). There are tons of features inside, the firmware is not original I reckon, but it's rather powerful, says CECT v. 13.0.21.8E.

    The manual is Chinese or Japanese, dunno. But there is an english version on the CD that came with the phone. All accessories included I even got 2 batteries instead of just one.

    I should recommend these Vertus, so far so good! And in case anything happens, I'm backed up by their 12 month warranty policy, so hey hey hey I think I just got a new phone to love and care for!

    yes the real vertu's are realy worth it for the lowend models but spending 40-107k on a cell phone or 330k like bradpit did on a vertu needs there brain re examined as to lux-replica they are the best replicas on the net i had to see for my self and realy the only difference you can see if you had them side by side is the consier service or how ever you ***** that lol but these ones fom alibaba are a waist of $$ there plastic piece of junk and 95% of the ones from chine are dual band only which wont work in the usa or canada so if u want the best to the original the lux-replica is the place and there not made cheep i hope this answered any of your ?

    Re: Is VERTU really 'Vert' [worth] it?

    After having the iphone since it's release I wanted something new. So I searched around and found something better, even than Vertu. Mobiado phones. I think they are more unique than Vertu, less expensive but the price is still a killer (about $3,000!). So instead I bought a replica Mobiado Stealth. Now I know what you must be thinking, but trust me the phone is top notch. My friend has the authentic one and you can't tell them apart. I am not trying to advertise here but I just wanted to share my experience with a great luxury phone for a fraction of the cost. Those of you who seek quality and virtually no difference between the original and copy, check out this site mobiadoreplicas dot com

    Re: Is VERTU really 'Vert' [worth] it?

    yes, in my opinion VERTU phone is exactly a luxury phone, too expensive for most people cannot afford it, I'd prefer to buy a fake vertu to have a experience, because one of my friend bought a newest vertu signature s design phone from a china phone wholesale site which named Micsourcing, it seems nice and cool.
    You have to believe in yourself. That's the secret of success. This is irene, keeping to provide you more NOKIA phone, China mobile phones, and Multi-function cellphones at wholesale price, welcome to view my homepage-MICsourcing company!
