Description

Nokia Lumia 800 - the first Nokia Windows Phone! Stephen Elop actually went so far as calling it "the first real Windows Phone". Available in black, cyan and magenta, it is crafted in the ergonomic pillow-shaped form of the Nokia N9, made out of deep-colored polycarbonate, and sporting a 3.7" 480x800 pixels ClearBlack display, as expected. The handset is 0.48" (12.1mm) thick, on 124g of weight. It is powered by a 1.4GHz processor, with 16GB of internal storage, 1540mAh battery and a microSIM slot. An 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens sports f/2.2 aperture and an optimized dual-LED flash aims to avoid washing out the details. A lot of the initial presentation was spent to tout features that already come with Windows Phone Mango - People Hub, Pictures Hub, Microsoft Office Hub, IE9 Mobile, Xbox Live, 25GB SkyDrive storage, etc. - which are a first for a Nokia handset, of course.

This device is also known as Nokia 703, Nokia Searay, Nokia Sun, Nokia Sea Ray

Best Buy Ever!!!
Phone owned for less than a year

This phone is truly amazing. It is fast the apps are great, everything I need just on one device. I've had blackberrys, HTCs and samsungs in the past but none compare to this. The nokia lumia range are all super but this just has to be a personal fav!

Couldn't do without it! It helps get me through the days and lasts forever on full battery and the battery saver is a great tool for when you have to work over time lol

Okay but not great
Phone owned for less than a year

The Nokia Lumia 800 was my first "premium" smartphone with great features, I thought. This phone wasn't that different to the Nokia Lumia 710 I had before therefore I wasn't pleased.
I have had enough with the Windows Phone ecosystem and I can come to conclusion that it is a very stable operating system, but the lack of apps and customization options really pulls me apart from this handset.
Overall, the experience was good but the hardware is frankly average.

Nokia Lumia 800 Running Windows Phone 7.5
Phone owned for less than a month

Although i do not own a Lumia 800, i have used one and borrowed one for review purposes.

The build qaulity of the Lumia 800 shines bright, this is not a mid-in handset! This is high end qaulity! :D

Firstly, starting off with Multimedia the Nokia Lumia 800 does a fantastic job just like the Lumia 710 (Which i have). Video playback is smooth and runs very well, and the people hub that is a feature in Windows Phone also runs very well.

Onto the Operating System (OS), Windows Phone 7.5 runs extremely smoothly and the Bing services (local scout, Bing Search, Bing Maps etc) is the icing on the cake! :) And the Lumia 800 will get even better with the Windows Phone 7.8 Update that is promised to come to Windows Phon 7.5 devices in the new year. (Hopefully!)

Aesthetics of the device also look great, however, part of this stunning looks have been taken from the Nokia N9 (Not running Windows Phone OS at all). None the less, the colour choices the lumia 800 comes in is ok, not bad :)

In conclusion, the Nokia Lumia 800 makes a great smartphone, and unlike android, you won't find any lag or malware in Windows Phone 7.5.

Take a look at the ratings below! :)

Cheers.
