I love my Lumia 800 !! Its a breathe of fresh air after using android for so many years..
WP7 is a completely different OS, nicely polished, with a very fast and fluid UI. Android can never reach the fluidity and responsiveness of WP7 even with Android 10.1, take my word !!
Reason? Android is flawed at fundamental levels and to achieve what WP7 has they will need to re-write their OS all from scratch. On the other hand, Microsoft have been making OSes more than 20 years now and they know how to optimize OS performance unlike Google Android who are too young in making OSes.

Have seen it, have tried it, not bad but I m still quite happy with my C7-00 BELLE, nothing revolutionarry except the OS..lumia has no front cam?-ok no big deal but it still looks that Nokia is trying to catch up with other rands after a few wasted years.....
The best exemple is that over 80% of all apps are for I phone and android....
i have a question, i'm new so pls be gentle, anyway when storing mp3s or videos, can you do it by syncing your lumia to your laptop or all these thing has to go through zune,
[deleted post]Hey thanks watched atrix 2 yep agreed a better choice over lumia 800 better specs just got to watch that atrix 2 face off vid with gs2 i think lumia800 is just good to upload pics on facebook how much cheap is atrix 2 than lumia800 ?
i think it is good phone not great frist thing why.it has no secondry camra battry bacup is not good cost of this phone is very high camperd to sumsang or htc smart phones
Im renewing my contract and im planning to get a new phone. I have 3 choices, lumia 800, iphone 4s and blackberry 9900
The iphone 4s has a lot of apps and good cam but im holding back since i already have an ipad which kinda offers the same function as the iphone.
The blackberry 9900 on the other hand has a memory card slot but the screen is too small and i hear that battery sucks.
For the lumia 800, its something new, and i find the design amazing. So im just not sure yet about the windows phone OS, now my question is, to those who have tried using this phone, is it good compared to the other phones i mentioned? I mean, the speed, usability, and, isnt it hard to type on the on screen keyboard of the lumia?
its so far the best phone from nokia, refreshing easy to handle n ths sleek design makes it diffrent fronm other heavy built android phones. w 7 is a better looking os than android n also is unique make u stand apart from all those cheap phones which also contain android
saddam, 30 Apr 2012Bad battery backupupdated ur software?? can u say ur software version.. i can help u out if u really own this mobile..
x nok, 01 May 2012No front cameta?! What century is this from?which century are u from? spell ur words correctly first!.. You don't say. Well if u want a front cam go for 900.. we r happy without ff.. but keep on complaining without trying is a dash
x nok, 01 May 2012No front cameta?! What century is this from?Honestly, do you guys really need or use the front camera of a cell phone? ... if you guys really want a Lumia with a front camera, then go for the Lumia 900 instead!
I just got a chance to navigate this phone and other 3 Lumias yesterday in the Nokia Store, SM Manila Branch (Philippines). This phone is awesome. It has stunning display. Kudos for the Nokia ClearBlack display. It's UI is very intuitive. It's also fast. Camera is also nice.
If you want to meet the Lumias family, just go Nokia Store SM Manila. I think it is still displayed there.
got to play with this phone at nokia store and i would admit its seems to be a good phone. wp is still new so one has to get used to it unike android and ios. but the lack of secondary camera is the one thing i won't buy this phone. samsung's mid range phone all have secondary camera and micro sd slot so samsung's phone is still better in terms of value for money compared to this lumia 800 and tht is what most people want.
gannalion, 30 Apr 2012millions customers would have turn up for LUMIAS, if the fones supported external memory card ... morei absolutely agree with u. i will buy a lumia right now if i get all these features. otherwise iam quite happy with my android.
