Summary: The phone is very impressive. Big large screen and fonts. The scrolling is a bit sluggish when you start but it then works perfectly. The app store had all the required apps viz. whatapp, skype, viber but lacked some good games. Overall I am very happy with the phone and I am sure the one whom I will be gifting the phone will also be.
Wonderful piece of hardware, good software but has one problem

Summary: I've used the Nokia lumia 800 for about two weeks now. The phone is sleek, operations are quite lightning fast, the phone does not boot but resets. I think the user interface is quite friendly and there are enough apps for you. I have noticed one problem...it jams once you attempt to end a call u made, and continues reading airtime after that, forcing one to power it off.

Pros: Nice looking phone. Audio playback better than most other manufacturers, but not as good as iPhone. Love the industrial design and scratch proof case.
Cons: Windows 7.5 willbe hard to accept by most users except for experimenters. For a 3.7" screen, I prefer the retina display. No dual core could trouble even the experimenter crowd. The camera is ok, but not as good as Apple.
NOKIA TRIES TO SAVE FACE (Microsoft COULD NOT CARE LESS)
17 August 2013
Summary: I have been a loyal NOKIA customer ever since my first mobile, the legendary 6110 (and what a great phone that was!). Over the years I have upgraded or simply replaced a number of NOKIAs and my loyalty may have been tested at times but it was never scorned. Until recently. My latest 6500s was at its last of its nine lives (after its second battery replacement and numerous drops) so I decided to bite the bullet and go shopping for a smartphone.
Summary: got this phone almost 18 months ago, really pleased with it, does everything I want it to, BUT battery does not last 24 hrs if you use it to its full potential so need to charge up twice a day. Having now recharged it probably in excess of 1000 times the battery has died and cannot be 'user replaced' this is not good when on a 2 year contract! would have given 5 star rating but for this. anyone else come across this problem?
Summary: I have always used Nokia phones since the mid 90s. Lumia 800 is my first smartphone Its an upgrade from my Nokia E72. It ships with WP7.5 Mango. Bought here on Amazon for £159 including postage. I went to my local Three store to get a new microsim card, which was activated within 2 hrs. The set up process requires a Windows Live Account, so l opened a test account to see how things work.
