This is the most stunning Android Phone, ever. Why wouldn’t it be? Vertu Ti Ferrari Phone is a luxury to own at Price Rupees 11,10,000. Only 2013 pieces are made. All handcrafted!!
Leather used to cover seats of Ferrari car, is also used to dress Vertu Ti Ferrari. Every side or corner of the phone bears a hint of F12 Berlinetta genetics.
Ferrari luxury phone weighs heavier than most top end Android phones, out there. Does the heavy weight (188 gms) reduce its appeal? Not at all. Vertu Ti Ferrari wasn’t designed to weigh like a feather. Phone’s casing is made with Titanium. Furthermore, it is plated in Diamond like Carbon Coating (DLC). This coating is also used on transmission components of Ferrari cars. As the term suggests, ‘Diamond’ Like ‘Carbon’ strengthens surface, making it nearly scratch proof.
Ti Ferrar’s pillow stands out on the gorgeous design. It flaunts signature Ferrari carbon weave using coloured Alutex composite. A similar weave is used to distinguish three function keys under touch screen.
Look closely at the curves, metallic lines, screw work, on the frames. Vertu Ti Ferrari is handcrafted to perfection as if ordered for a custom make.
Radiator grills are depicted at the bottom side.
Vertu Ferrari Ti sits pretty with its predecessor – the Vertu Ascent Ti ferrari. Unlike the older Ferrari phone, battery of new Ferrari luxury phone is locked behind back cover.
Prancing horse is placed at several places on handset to reiterate Ferrari’s contribution to design. I adore the presence of the little prancing horse on both sides, specially the tiny figure that sits right at bottom, in front.
A push out key around the camera opens up the micro sim tray. Cover of tray bears signature of the artist who handcrafted the phone. Ferrari luxury phone camera is 8 MP with twin LED flash.
3.7Inch Sapphire crystal screen with high contrast display. A 1.3 MP camera is placed on top. With 64 Gb inbuilt memory there is plenty of boot space for all your data. Battery life can last up to 7 hours of talktime.
Performance wise Vertu Ti Ferrari lags by a short mark. It runs on older version of Android i.e. 4.0. It does represent the fastest Ferrari car but cannot compete, in speed with advanced (economy) phones, in market. However, Vertu deserves credit for producing a luxury phone that runs on dual core 1.7 Ghz Qualcomm processor. It is fast enough to multi task. Ti Ferrari has NFC features too.
Vertu Ti Ferrari is customised to Ferrari taste, on the inside, as well. Ferrari apps bring regular Ferrari news on the phone. Vertu’s own concierge service is also included. A Ferrari virtual clock is designed specially for Vertu Ti. Ferrari engine sounds are used to make ringtones in collaboration with Bang and Olufsen.
I highly recommend Vertu Ti Ferrari to those who are happy to invest and spend big money on a piece of functional art. This luxury Ferrari phone does qualify as a SMART phone, too. So it is not going to be just a show piece in your hand.
