Vertu Constellation hands-on: A thing money can buy
You've probably wondered what Vertu mobile phones are all about. After all they are absurdly over-priced, extremely under-powered, and many of those look somewhat… ok, let's say that most people don't fall in love with them instantly.
Well, we certainly have given the issue some thought and that is why we decided to give two of these babies a quick test drive. Dealing with mobile phones that are worth an arm and a leg is not what we do on a regular basis.
Only a glance at the price tag clearly shows that Vertu phones are status symbols rather than plain communication devices. With prices starting from almost $5000 they clearly show that their owners are people, who hardly ask for the prices when shopping.
So what do you really get for this kind of money? It is the latest technology indeed but not in the sense of being the most feature-loaded devices you can imagine. The technology in Vertu phones lies somewhere else - in their construction.
