Monkeying around with the Nokia Lumia 800
Zoo Marketing Officer Susanna Silvonen told local media in Finland that the monkey would probably be smart enough to figure out how to use the phone, but by now the battery has run out and she says it might end up being used as a chew toy. One thing we noted was that unlike humans stuck with an older model phone, the primate didn't sulk and stomp around until he got an updated, newer model.
So far, no one has reported a missing Nokia Lumia 800 to the Zoo.

Even a Monkey is smart enough to understand that Lumia smartphones take great pictures, and are a million times more secure than Android devices...

TBH the lumia 800 was a load of pants and because it is permanently stuck on an older version of the OS. Sorry but the monkey can keep that pile of dung. The Bandit and 1020 however and that'd be a different story and may be a case of having to be arrested for animal cruelty.

Oh look...an Android loving ape calling me a Chimp! It takes one to know one, but at least this primate doesn't have to worry about master-key trojans, and other viri that plague Google's Linux derivative.

So that is how bad lumia phones are. People don't even report when they are lost.

That's how you see it?
I see it like this...Lumias are so durable the owner is not worried even when a monkey is holding it.
Your name should be "Haters" not "Taters".

Tell me,, just how bad is my Nokia Lumia 920 compared to whatever crappy device you use.. ❔❔❔

I wouldn't go around calling other phones crappy when you have the biggest brick in the world. Especially since the top creaks and collects dust in the FFC area and the daylight pictures are worse than other competitors despite supposedly having great build quality and a great camera.
The Lumia 920 was the definition of fail.

OH MY GOD THE TOP CREAKS AND COLLECTS DUST!! WORST PHONE EVER! It doesnt matter if it does everything else perfectly fine! (no points for spotting sarcasm)

What kind of device do you use❔ I'll tell you how yours is peanuts compared to my 920.. And don't punk out on me.. Tell me what kind of device, or I'm going to assume you're device is just some crappy iDroid disposable toy.. ❔❔❔

I've an old phone, it doesn't rate really.
But if it was knocked from my hand into McDonald's toy ball pit, at least I could spot it right away unlike some others.
Relax I respect Nokia, but with wp, they go for peanuts.

It might be an n9, how can they tell the difference if the battery has run out?
17. Credo (Posts: 699; Member since: 19 Apr 2012)
it's an Lumia 800 for sure, the N9's flash is not where you see it in the picture above :)
18. Credo (Posts: 699; Member since: 19 Apr 2012)
Looool because Samsung's plastic is not so durable !!! :o Not sure if u use Samsung but just saying :p
38. Bernoulli (Posts: 2008; Member since: 01 Sep 2012)
Correct yourself! It's not Samsung, it's Samsuck!

Not just monkeys, but also the higher class, most of my wealthy friends whose parents are lawyers and doctors prefer a lumia, I too have my lumia but I'm not rich

speaking of android 18 and monkeys reminds me of DBZ. Nokia phones are probably the only phones that can survive being used by Saiyans. lol

^^ this, +9000, not even a genki dama will be a match to a Nokia handset, which reminds me, the thing vegeta used to call his space ship looks like a Nokia e series that went through weight reduction
39. Bernoulli (Posts: 2008; Member since: 01 Sep 2012)
Yup, and just like in the series I did the #smartswitch away from android, why do you think I went for a non android? They're so complicated
