Vertu Constellation Review
Outside reviews are not often covered at Electronista, but an exception can be made for the Vertu Constellation due to its rarity: few will ever have the privilege of using a Vertu phone. Luxury technology site Sybarites recently had the rare opportunity to test the new model from Nokia's high-end brand and has positive findings. The overall quality is very high, writes the reviewer. Unlike most cellphones, the Constellation is hand-assembled and includes features one would expect from a phone likely to be used by the world elite. A notable highlight is the concierge button that automatically connects with a unique agent who can reserve boats, restaurants, or other special requests. The review further mentions that the use of satin steel, a sapphire screen and other premium materials do add to the perceived quality. The Constellation is currently available only through direct contact with Vertu or its special retail stores.
