Summary: If apps are what sells a phone to you, then you should hold off on buying the Nokia Lumia 800. It's more than capable of competing in any other area, however, proving easy to use, attractive and well made. We like it!
Excerpt: Crafted from injection moulded polycarbonate the Nokia Lumia 800 cuts an impressive visual appearance, lining up at 12.1mm thick the handset feels reassuringly solid in the hand and satisfactory sturdy whilst remaining light, sleek and certainly pocketable.
Excerpt: Nokia once had a big stake in the U.S. smartphone market. I remember being jealous in high school that I couldn’t tell anyone my Snake high score because I carried a Motorola phone. I seemed to be the only kid without a Nokia device so, when I went to college, I picked up the Nokia 6010.
Excerpt: I’ve been an iPhone user since the 3G and when my iPhone 4 was broken I had a good look at the market to see what was available and a bit different to the rest of the competition. In this search I came across the NOKIA LUMIA 800, which although ran Windows Phone 7, brought […]
Pros: Durable, comfortable, Windows Phone is refreshing, great battery performance, included case is all you need (same some cash on all those cases!)
Cons: Curved screen left me thinking its easy to scratch and fitting a protector may prove tricky, Windows Phone doesn’t have the app support of iOS or Android (try before you buy), charging bay flap is going to break.
Excerpt: The Nokia Lumia 800 is the first overwhelmingly positive result born from two mobile underdogs. It’s essentially Nokia’s gorgeous N9 on the hardware side, packed finally with a mobile OS (Windows Phone 7) whose tombstone isn’t already chiseled.
Excerpt: Aaron takes an in-depth look at the Nokia Lumia 800 , the manufacturer's flagship Windows Phone device that's being billed by them as the "first real Windows Phone" device. Announced at Nokia World last month, the specifications list is decent, with a 1.4 GHz single-core CPU, 3.7-inch AMOLED...
Nokia Lumia 800 Review - Nokia's Brave New Foray into WP7
9 June 2012
Conclusion: The Lumia 800 is indubitably the best Windows Phone hardware out there right now. When people previously spoke in hushed tones about wanting Nokia to make Windows Phones, the unspoken reasons for wanting a Nokia WP7 device were a few notable features - a camera without compromises, hardware build...
Excerpt: Writing this review was emotional. I became deeply pensive, and at one stage called my mom to tell her that I love her and that I’ve found the perfect phone for her. It’s what the Nokia Lumia 800 does. It evokes emotive responses. It makes you, for the lack of a better word, gaga.
Nokia Lumia 800 Review - Surprisingly Good, Not Quite Impressive
17 May 2012
Excerpt: Unfortunately, Nokia’s decision led to a schism among the company’s fans who preferred one the three major mobile operating systems: MeeGo, Android and Windows Phone. Launched on the market a few months before Lumia 800 hit shelves, the N9 quickly gathered lots of fans and many favorable reviews...
Pros: The first thing that we think should make the Lumia 800 stand out is the appealing design. Windows Phone 7.5 Mango is also another consistent improvement over the original version, which lacked so many things like multitasking and copy/paste. Even though the phone’s 3.7-inch ClearBlack display on...
Cons: Some may complain about the phone’s form factor, but personally I like the minimal look and rectangular form factor. Another downside of the Lumia 800 is the lack of a microSD card slot, but that’s a common issue for all Windows Phone devices. Telephony and multimedia areas could be improved as w...
