WP is actually the easiest to use vs. iOS and Android. Its the easiest in integrating contacts with social networks and calendar. Zune beats iTunes by a mile when it comes to ease of use. XBox Live is cool. Android's big advantage though is USB mass storage and apps. WP's UI is very smooth and fast. It doesnt lag. Androids would need quadcore processors to do this. Of course if you are into heavy customization and flexibility, Android is for you. If you want to be "in", get the iphone. But if you are just looking to do basic smartphone processes like browsing, emails, calls, sms, etc., without the hassle, the Lumia does a brilliant job.
tried using this phone its really cool... it has all the option u need...
MS doing injustice to themselves if they dont offer apollo to the current WP lineup
My comparison of iphone 4s, Lumia 800 and Samsung Nexus:
I have used Lumia 800 and found a lot of issues, I bought it after selling iphone 4s as was not happy with it, in iphone you can't access/view or copy sim contacts, you have to write them one by one, pictures etc can't be shared to pc directly, texting key board can't be changed, plus a lot other complicated issues. I appreciate it's screen and it's user friendliness in internet usage though. If you need it just for internet usage then it's a nice phone but if you are fussy about small things in the features then iphone is not for you. At the end it's a phone with too many limits or I would say restrictions.
Same problem with Lumia, can't use it without zune which is very complicated, I tried to install it but it was giving error on my system, the phone was complicated itself, it's not a user friendly phone at all, have never used such an unfriendly and complicated phone, keyboard is too small, for texting it's the worst. The touch screen is very responsive though. Again a complicated phone with a lot of restrictions on users. The drastic fall in its price shows all these things. Nokia was my favorite company but this time I was really disappointed.
Finally I sold it and bought Galaxy Nexus and loved it, I left iphone 4s, Lumia and now am satisfied with this amazing Galaxy with amazing features and battery life. My texting issue was resolved as I found loads of amazing keyboards for free online. Too many things to count, amazing big screen with high resolution, amazing softwares and utilities for free on android board, battery life, light weight, compact size, fastest download/upload speed, very user friendly with fast processor of 1.2 dual core, released in the same period making it competitive to iphone 4s. Only drawback is that Nexus camera is 5MP but again with Galaxy S2 and S3 you can have the 8MP, still I think this 5MP (with low light quality) is better than many other 8MP. Its limited memory of 16GB can be termed as another drawback but not for me, 16GB is more than enough for me.
With this phone you feel 'free' with no restrictions and that's what I wanted and at last found in Galaxy Nexus. Other latest versions of Galaxy are S2, S3 and Note.
Rivals (in terms of release or hardware/software):
Nokia N8 = iphone 3gs = Galaxy Y/Ace
Galaxy S2 = iphone 4
Galaxy Nexus = iphone 4S = Lumia 800/900
Galaxy Note = None (coz of its size) or 4S and Lumia if size doesn't matter
Galaxy S3 (Latest) = May be coming soon/iphone 5/Nokia pureview or ?
Samsung is the next Leader in mobiles I am sure. Iphone is just for brand conscious people, for performance and class Samsung is the best. Unfortunately Nokia is far behind in this race.
I want to buy the white version of this phone, can anyone plz tell me if the white one will get dirty and yellowish after some time??
Mrw, 06 Jun 2012Amazing phone. But the screen makes a clicking/ creaking sound when i press it on the right si... moreYa I have the same prob the casing is loose nd the screen moves nd its 2-3 months old
Though gud at the price range bt has too less apps on the app store
Nd battery life sucks
Im torn between 800 and 900., if skype or any other app will use the front camera, i'll go for 900.. But the 800 screen is quite small for me.,also i consider the price. I'd like to have a phone that would seem to at least stay for 2 years without missing that much newer features.
wanna buy smt phone fan of nokia no knowledge of window ,easy to use iphone but comparing with smsg note) guys give good and bad info bout lumia 800
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2012Worst thing is that wm7.5 has no software for call/sms block.
Exactly! It's the only reason that keeps me away from this great phone.
Axl, 07 Jun 2012If its a MS Word or Excel doc, its probably in your Office appThanx Axl Its a text file & a powerpoint press but still cant find them anywhere? Not even in Office hub?
according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snapdragon_(system_on_chip)#Snapdragon_S3
Lumia 800 is using MSM8255T and not MSM8255.
well,i love this phone.but i dont know why itz usb connectionz r so complex 2 use...
hey guys which one is batter, nokia lumia 800 or samsung galaxy r.......??
The best phone ever for me, it does not has a sec camera, but who cares I had two with secondary camera prior to this one and I used it like twice, so this phone is the greatest, the battery life is amazing, and the windows os is just fast and simple but it has it and does it all.
