So it’s a solid phone, and an exemplar of how Windows Phone OS is supposed to look and act. Unfortunately, the Lumia 800 may be a “too little, too late” player in the fast-paced smartphone game quote

This is an attractive option if you're a fan of Windows Phone and great design. It's far from perfect, though, and Nokia's best is yet to come.

In future models we would like to see a front facing camera, NFC and we'd love a dock. ... However, get past those quibbles and the Nokia Lumia 800 is a lovely phone. It's a phone that will evoke fond memories, a phone that makes using your phone fun, and a phone that you will be keen to show off...

Nokia has delivered some personalisation features for both professional and personal users, and the reuse of the N9 chassis design is a good move. The result is a solid smartphone that may help to increase the appeal of Windows Phone.

A brilliant camera and compelling design, paired with a usable and clever platform, add up to a handset that’s straightforward enough for first-time smartphone users but still has enough appeal for those more familiar with advanced phones.

Is the Lumia 800 worth the purchase? Yes, especially for new (or potential) consumers, since the handset packs some impressive features and is powered by Windows Phone Mango. The design is slick, the feel is soft and the experience is impressive.

Quote: I suppose the bottom line is that this is not Nokia's "A" game....While the Lumia 800 isn't the best at photos, nor the best at value-added software, nor the best at speed, big screens, or battery life (relative to the secondnd generation Windows Phones)…I believe it is the best in design.

Great phone with one issue - battery life. It dies in 4-5 hours of active use and barely lives till the end of the day on general everyday use. Sometimes it can die overnight if not put on charger.

The Nokia lumia 800 is a great phone with a major drawback, the call quality is not the best, sometime i call someone from the same location using an iPhone and we both can hear each other better. Also the battery life is very short, the phone dies at 8pm with a normal usage, but i guess thats...

A close to perfect phone. The only issues I have is the low screen resolution, the bezel which is a bit to big and the plastic thing on the back round the camera lens.

This is a really great phone from Nokia mixing excellent hardware with the Windows Phone 7 operating system enhanced with a great range of Nokia specific applications. The main disadvantage is the fact that the phone will not be updated to run Windows Phone 8. Nevertheless for those wanting to...

This phone was amazing but there were several issues that made me to sell it.First it didn't have any front camera and also the screen size was not standard for a WP7 phone but it had an amazing design and good hardware quality. I recommend people to buy Lumia 900 or N9 instead of Lumia 800.

It got the job done, i was a hardcore iphone user who decided to use this for two weeks and found it doing everything necessary and nothing fancy. The consistency of the UI was more or less getting under the skin after a certain point since every app felt and looked the same and just a different...

You cannot talk about this phone without how stunningly beautiful it is. I know that this is a recycled design from the late Nokia N9, but still with Metro styled UI, it looks even better. It almost seems like the Lumia 800 and WP was made for each other. It is just stunning to look at. Looks...
