Nokia Lumia 800 against the world: specs comparison

0. phoneArena 26 Oct 2011, 05:47 posted on

The Nokia Lumia 800 has finally been announced and it's the "first real Windows Phone," as Stephen Elop himself put it. But fancy words aside, what does it really hide under that beautiful pillow-shaped display?...

But which one never lags at the homescreen?

Pawned.

and I think it should be compared to other Windows Phones. Too unfair with Android and (iOS)

None of them should lag at the home screen.

PA, are you writing "specs comparison" to put Nokia to shame?

Everyone here knows WP handsets are almost all the same from the start and won't be deviating from the strict requirements Microsoft imposed. Too bad, such are what we categorize now as mid-range.

to be more fair, you should throw in a BADA set, or an the SGS1+ or whatever its called, since they are in the same ball park.

Look, its nearly on par with the i4s :)

the camera comparison should include the fact that its a Carl Z with a much better aperature than most.

Shouldn't you compare it to other windows phones?

no gg
no 4g
no front camera
smallish screen
small processor
small battery
half the ram
no SD card slot

and its still half an inch thick? im sure mango is cool, i like WP7, but this design seems awful. are they planning on giving these things away?

512 MB of RAM are quite enough to run WP7.5 perfectly and fluidly.

it may be able to now, but 6 months ahead into q2 2012, are you sure it can maintain that smoothness, and run apps on par with other OSes?

of course it will be. wp7 was made so, that it won't need powerhouses to run. if they'll come with more xbox live games whose graphics are far better than the current ones, they'll definitely update to that. but i don't think it's that close because the graphic chips are prettymuch kickass in these devices, as far as i'm concerned, and can hold on for a while.

As a user, I can say yes from personal experiences. My WP is still as crisp as day 1... Android on the other hand has had a lag since day one, and has increingly slowed down and become problematic.

For all the pros and cons of each OS (because they all do have many pros AND cons), reliability and speed is not an issue FOR ME on my WP so far...

And I have loaded it with media content from movies, recorded videos, MP3s, voice recordings, documents....

my post is just to question the thickness.

you see a phone thats half an inch thick and you'd expect to find some hardware taking up all that space, but there just isnt. points to poor design in my eyes.

512 mb of ram is all the i4s has. wp7 is a more simplified OS halfway between iOS and Android. It doesnt need as much horsepower. It was running smooth as silk on a S1 snapdragon for gods sakes.. lol


At least they went to the best of the best for single cores.. the over clocked Hummingbird.

That's what Symbian users say... And fans of cirtain android manufacturers who don't provide enough RAM in their android devices.

each OS is different. iOS doesnt need the horsepower. Android does. WP7 is somewhere in the middle, but closer to the iOS side than the android side in power needs.

ah this phone has bigger screen thn the Iphone 4S and same exact RAM, both not extendible SD CARD, and its 3g so what m i missing ?
and the battery even though its small in numbers, delivers. Lets really look at the comparison then put the specs Ayephoner!( that xplains everything)

my concern is with the thickness.

why is there that much volume if the hardware is not there?

After all windows phone needs less resources than iOS and of course android. How can you expect an efficient worker need a thousand assistants? Just because an average inefficient worker needs so?

Actually, i'd put it this way: How can you expect a small project to need a thousand workers to complete it, just because these bigger projects need so?

Why do people care about having more points in some benchmark so much ?

RAZR is not using TI 4460. It's using 4430.

i hope you already have it planned, but can we see another razr vs. galaxy nexus article? the first one has some missing info (processor for starters).

maybe once the devices are made official and you get to review final builds of each. thanks victor.
