Vertu Constellation, the smartphone that was worth 4000 euros
If you find the iPhone too expensive, do not read what follows ! For nearly twenty years, Under seeks to make the mobile phone – and smartphone – a true object of luxury. His latest gem in date is called a Constellation. Far from the factories of the chinese or vietnamese Apple and Samsung, it is hand-assembled in England. Dressed in leather and metal, the device is sold for the modest sum of 4100 euros. At this price, the finishes are – logically – copies.
The majority of smartphone manufacturers are trying to sell devices thin and light. In Virtue, we shall assume a product is thick, which weighs more than 240 grams. It is 50% more than the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, which is also equipped with a 5.5-inch screen. The slab of the Constellation is of high quality (Amoled technology and definition Quad HD), but far from being one of the most luminous of the market. The reading comfort is still very good.
Like many high-end smartphones of 2016 (LG G5 or HTC 10, among others), the machine turns on with the powerful Snapdragon 820, clocked at 2.2 GHz and supported by 4 Gb of ram. Even demanding players will find their account. On the other hand, the processor is rather greedy, in the same way that the screen is very detailed. Therefore, there is no miracle in battery life: the camera will turn off after one day of use.
The Vertu Constellation is convincing in a photo, without matching the Samsung Galaxy S7, iPhone 7 or Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe. On the other hand, it is distinguished by its exclusive services of the concierge… who will encourage you to spend even more. Apart from a privileged access to tickets to shows and sporting events, you will be able to offer you a trip to the North Pole with a helicopter tour for 18 000 euros. Per person.
