Review: Nokia Lumia 800

12 June 2014
  • 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.
  • 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.

Nokia Lumia 800: Review

12 February 2014
  • 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. Amply sized without being intrusive the Lumia 800’s 3.7-inch AMOLED ClearBlack curved display is stunningly vibrant with the WP7 OS’s intense colours popping from the screen in crystal clarity.

Windows Phone Central

  • Excerpt: The Nokia Lumia 800 is the final result of hard work and active development in the time that was available since they announced the partnership with Microsoft earlier this year. Nokia has stated that 2012 will be the year to look out for innovative hardware, powerful handsets (with possibly dual-core chips) and much more. The Lumia family also includes the 710, a more affordable option.

Review: Nokia Lumia 800 – Achingly beautiful

17 May 2012
  • 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. I work with a panoply of personality types, and the Lumia 800 drew superlative praise from everyone. No hyperbole here, just plain, honest truth.

Nokia Lumia 800 Review: In Depth

14 May 2012
  • Conclusion: We’re really impressed with the Nokia Lumia 800, it’s the best Windows Phone 7.5 phone to date. Build quality is excellent, it looks stunning and it’s very quick. Windows Phone as an OS is very simple to use and keeps getting better and better. We’d have liked to have seen a better camera and an NFC chip like the N9, but Nokia deserves to have success with the Lumia 800.
  • Pros: Fantastic build, User-friendly operating system, Excellent screen for movies
  • Cons: Poor camera, No removable memory

Nokia Lumia 800 Review

8 May 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s the end of the year and Nokia has finally announced its “Piece de resistance” handset – the Lumia 800. It’s the first, of course in the series and is based on their MeeGo running N9 device only this one is, of course, running on the latest version of the Windows Phone 7 OS, which is Mango. We’ve already done a detailed preview of the handset where we outlined the kind of features it comes with, but here’s a closer look at the overall functionality.

The Boy Genius Report
7 May 2012
  • Conclusion: As I said at the beginning of this review, I couldn’t wait for the Lumia 800 to arrive so that I could finally see just how well Nokia was able to marry Windows Phone 7.5, an operating system I already love, with the Finnish phone maker’s incredible hardware. I like the AMOLED display, but it doesn’t blow me away like the Super AMOLED Plus screens on Samsung’s devices.

Nokia Lumia 800 Review: A Windows Phone that Stands Out from the Pack

28 April 2012
  • Summary: After testing the Lumia 800 for several days, it is perfectly clear that Microsoft and Nokia have made a terrific deal by burying the hatchet a year ago – this is convincingly the best Windows Phone device, apart from the bigger, but otherwise almost identical Lumia 900. Just about all the Lumia 800’s shortcomings boil down to the platform being flawed (no Flash or Silverlight, no microSD slot), some of which are expected to be remedied with the upcoming arrival of...
  • Pros: Superior build and design, Screen contrast, Above average camera performance
  • Cons: No Flash or Silverlight support, Unchangeable battery, No secondary camera
