I have used almost every kind of smartphone from every kind of os . I have used xperia arc play neo , s2 , sensation , iPhone 4 lastly 4s. I conclude that this is one excellent phone and its just awsome. So my ranking would be
1- iPhone 4s
2 - xperia arc
3 - lumia 800 . Battery backup is awesome phone runs smoothly. Only problem is some calling issue.
again a big looser by nokia,following are the problems faced in lumia 800:-
1) call does not get disconnect.
2) transferring data like movies takes whole night.
3) poor battery life
4) phone replaced 3 times but still no satisfaction
My Firmware is 1600.2479.7740.11451
I got from India and it shows me that mine is up to date .. but i guess is not ! what can i do now ?! any repy :S and i already connected to it to ZUNE :s

why is this thing so heavy? It's heavier than my HTC Sensation, which has a much bigger screen!!

I have used the Lumia 800 for over a month. Its an amazing phone and good in terms of performance as well as batterlife unlike the androids. However, following are the challenges i have noticed,
- Audio problem - most of the callers get the resound when I am using the headphones
- Most importantly: the gorilla glass is moving when the finger is firmly slided over the glass. I am not the only one facing this issues. There are other customers who have reported this problem to the nokia care in india...
I have returned my phone at the nokia care for the issues to be resolved....
Anonymous, 07 Feb 2012i really want this phone, i wanna make it as a music phone.. but jesus, 16gb only? wont fit my... moreAudio quality is perfect on Nokia N9, not Lumia 800.I can also tell that Nokia E6 has marvelous audio quality but then you have another platform but incredibly battery backup for playing music, also removable battery. The form factor is of course different on Nokia E6. Perhaps Nokia 701 is the best compromise.
Nokia 701 price at Rs 16,888/- is 3 times more efficient than lumia 800.
wastage of money on this beautiful body with limited utility is not very wise,
after seeing my friend trying hard to resell his..... and going back to symbian belle 701.
i really want this phone, i wanna make it as a music phone.. but jesus, 16gb only? wont fit my music collection.-_-
This is the next gen phone.limitations depends on OS restrictions. I phone killer , I repeat the comments of one user in this forum"Droid will sink soon
