The Vertu Ti smart phone, is hardly impressive as compared to other phones such as the iPhone 5, Galaxy S3, Nexus 4 or Nokia Lumia 920. With technology changing by the day, why on earth would someone want to buy a Smartphone costing around £7000 is beyond me. May be I’ll realize when (and IF) I’m a millionaire.

You may be better off buying a standard Smartphone that gives great usability and specs and buy diamond cover for it! Keep changing the Smartphone when it evolves.
