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
Nokia's Lumia 800 shows the world Windows Phone done right
15 November 2011
Summary: One of the problems smartphone manufacturers face when they design and build a Windows Phone powered device is that if you've seen one Windows Phone, you've basically seen them all. After all, how much can you do when the phones all feature the same basic specifications and are dominated by a similar touchscreen.
Pros: Near-perfect design, solid camera, excellent AMOLED display, fast and silky smooth
Cons: Non-swappable battery, no 1080p HD video recording
Summary: If anything can mount a challenge to the iPhone/Android status quo, it'll be this joint effort from Microsoft and Nokia. Nokia is renowned for its hardware styling and camera quality, Microsoft knows a thing or two about operating systems (see the Instant Expert panel), and between them they've created one of the most desirable phones we've seen in a long time.
Excerpt: Nokia is dead, long live Nokia. Having been written off in the Western world, Nokia is throwing all its eggs in one basket and hoping that its latest phone, the Windows Phone 7 powered Nokia Lumia 800, has what it takes to wow.
Pros: AMOLED screen, Nokia Drive, Nokia Music, Design,
Cons: No front facing camera, no nfc, no replaceable battery
Excerpt: Lad os tage nyheden fra en ende af: Lumia 800 ligger godt i hånden. Designet er simpelt. Tænd- og volumeknapperne i højre side af telefonen sidder perfekt, så du kan nå dem med tommelfingeren – uanset om du snakker i telefonen eller kigger på skærmen, mens du holder den i højre hånd.
