Lumia 800 sucks and 900 will also suck! HOW & WHY ? Well, I will compare with other mobiles which are already available in market, whose share Microsoft and Nokia are trying to get a little bit.
3.7' screen compared to 4.3 ' screen size of Samsung S2 or Moto Razr XT 910/ MAXX Series
Screen technology (AMOLED) being used is almost at par but not in terms of density of pixels due to which richness is getting compromised in Lumia series.
Less or almost same battery life compared to its above counterparts. Maxx ofcourse is going to change the rules of the game with its battery life.
No slot for extending storage, big drawback in Lumia
No front camera
No gyroscope sensor which makes my gaming experience bad while i try to beat my my own scores at bed time....
No Bluetooth, this is a consicous decision because of windows OS on the phone. No comments !
RAM - I say win OS is good so i am happy with 512 MB RAM on a windows mobile unlike a andriod mobile which needs more RAM because its memory hungry and not corporate level, NOT stable and NOT sound like Win 7.5 Mango.
Water resistant - No
Slim - No, compared to Moto
Strong - No, compared to kevlar finish of Moto and upcoming some wierd alloy like material in Samsung S 3
Finish - I some how did not like the finish, rubbery finish but many others liked it but.
OS: With 7.5 Mango tables have turned, industry is now watching windows mobile OS, Its damn Stable and better than Android. I like Windows OS 7.5 and upcoming 8.0 which will be used in tab. Truly corporate level Mobile and TAB OS.
OS of Windows is turly corporate level with its 365 degree connectivity. Like connectivity to Exchange server, Lync Server, Share point , Office and Cloud. At the same time its also very user friendly which my dad can also use easily
BUT....who are Microsoft and Nokia sh@#$$ng, will they be able to capture any share of of their competitors with this kind of ultra cheap hardware specs inspite of good OS.
Final verdict, hardware of lumia is depressing when i think of upcoming marvels from Samsung, Moto and Apple. Because of such screensize and other vital hardware pieces missing i flush Lumia 800 and 900. At this price, i can get more hardware in Samsung or Moto.
Time to rethink of specs Lumia team !!! Atleast after Lumia 900, please come up with some market standard specs.
Lack of good hardware is forcing me to vote for droid devices like Samsung S 2, upcoming s3 and Moto Razr Series.
Lastly, no comparision between apple and mango ;-) Anyday, Apple is kind of cool, had its share and will continue to have its share irrespective of what ever MS and Nokia do together..

Will Nokia/WP devices support the following Nokia features (from old models)?
1. SMS templates
2. Group SMS
3. Send/receive vcard
Need these often. Btw are these supported in Anna and Belle?
Over the last few years, I have used many Nokia phones and I never felt like using any other brand because of the quality nokia provided, but lately Nokia phones are loosing their values.. Bigtime.. For instance N97 was and is Nokia's one of the costliest(costlier than E7 and n8) but no OS upgrade offered for it.. They just concentrate on new devices forgetting the old ones..Now coming to talk about this particular phone, according to me, its just waste of money.. NOKIA LUMIA 710 has everything this phone has and 10grand lesser. All this phone has, is an upgraded memory and camera and nothing else.. both the phones are of the same size and same processor and same OS and personally 710 looks better with the curves.. Overall, 710 is 10grand better than 800.. :)

mona, 28 Mar 2012i have lumia800. but the screen is brek by my mistak so wat i do? in nokia care the screen is ... morecheck at ebay india/malaysia/singapore websites. if you find it online at cheaper price then buy it and get it replaced from any nokia center.
In case you plan to use the handset for more than an year then find someone in nokia care & request him/her to replace the screen without bill.(only if you trust the person as your warranty will expire immediately), it will save your cost by 30-40%
