Hi All,

i have couple of question for the owners of this phone

1) how is the phone after the latest update?
2) if i added my G-Mail account is it possiable to Sync G-Mail contacts?
3) if i purchased this phone online (Amazon/eBay)will the Arabic language be included in the upcoming update Tango OR they will release Arabic support Region wise only?

Overall satisfied with the phone. Biggest dissapointments, two: managing outlook sync with contacts and calendar by far more complicated and some times not even achieved than with the original nokia software; second, impossible to edit phone numbers from the dialing history list, a very neccesary feature when you travel, this particular one was one of the biggest assets in the old nokia phones...

iOS is boring. I have an Iphone 4 and everything is controlled by apple. You cant process a single photo, without itunes, bluetooth doesent work with other phones, iphone glass is scratchable, lumia has corning gorrila glass, iphone 3.5 display, nokia 3.7 display, nokia battery lasts longer than iphones and other many things.... and one thing...Nokia Lumia 800 is new and fresh. I bet that if my friends with other smartphones saw me with nokia lumia 800 they shall be very jelaous.... Love you Nokia

I currently have this phone and its the best WP7 device by far, to put the battery life disputes to rest, after the latest update it is optimised to run better, games and web browsing kill the battery quite quick, but using bluetooth, WiFi and music the battery life is awesome... The nokia drive is brilliant and the zune software is something i prefer to iTunes in terms of looks and ease of use, the xbox companion app is brilliant being able to use your phone as a remote :)

it is indeed a new beginning for nokia, WP7 is one good OS compared to android and IOS (i myself is an android user)

Though there's few disappointments here and there, i still found it to be the next best thing after so many years using an android phone.

Simple yet functions so well thus shows WP7 does not always need a high end spec phone, single core can already showed the fluidity of metro UI, far better than my android mind you...

Bought this phone for several months, uses it. Coolest phone that I've ever touched, has extra capabilities like system-default battery saver and more. But needs a lot of improvement regarding battery life and Internet Explorer.

Did you guys turn off the automatic adjust setting in the brightness menu and the auto display intensity in the extra settings menu when you compared the screen brightness with that of the N9? Because WP7 phones auto dim when most of the screen is lit.
