People please try to understand that there is something new that is out there in the market so please just try it out rather than sitting on your computer/phone screens and posting rubbish just because you have read a few reviews.
I've tried the Lumia 800 and the 4S.In 4s the OS is the samething that i have on my touch, ya it's cool icons n all siri [I like siri very much worth buying 4S for just that] whats the time ya... ya ... yawn ... and there is lumia 800 or i should say WP 7.5 device you look at it and you think that this is a dummy because the icons seem to be painted on the surface and, then you feel it, it's new very smooth [believe me you ve to try it to believe it cause i was of the opinion that you can't match iOS in smoothness and i ve used android which was supposed to be the only thing after iOS and it is no where close to smooth, though i ve to agree on SII android runs the way it should.] and you can swipe [not the way you do on a iOS or Android for that matter its for switching tabs in apps.] and then you look at the specs and you wonder how the hell does it work so smooth on these peanuts .... ... ..
I 'm not sayin that it's the best phone but it surely is something new and fascinating like you are msgin your frnd who's in a wifi zone she's on FB and then she goes offline because she's to go somewhere. you can keep on chatting in the same msg thread cause you can change to SMS rather than going to the msg app from the FB app and sending you do it from the same window.
If apple would have thought of this they would have made a 30 min presentation explaining how easy it is and boom .... .. "same window but now ur using your SMS rather than FB account".
Just saying go ahead and have a look atleast !! It's cooler than you think !!! !

Hi! I used Iphone, Android and WP7, and i'm more pleased with my Samsung Focus that i got free with my mobile operator, I didn't liked iphone if you love to play games you can choose iphone because there is a lot of games even copy from a copy of another iphone game, the Android are powerhouses in the hardware by numbers but i got access to high end handsets and tablets and i can say that even the biggest dual core gets lag when doing daily stuff, but if you like to customize your phone Android is your handset, they need super hardware because Android needs more power to avoid the lag and the issues when trying to connect to wifi, i don't have any Nokia handset with WP7, but i have an old Samsung Focus (240dlls new in comparision to Galaxy Note that i like is extremely cheap)i had no issues with WP7 7.5, i make calls hangs out very fast, connection to wifi almost instantaneously, all my social networks are chained on my contacts in one touch, and it's true that there is missing some apps mostly games, so if people say that is for the apps they are talking about the games, and EA will bring 20 games to WP7, if you want to know the true in mobile OS you have to try everyone, and i did and i love WP7 7.5 and i tried at last because of the apps myth.

but the sale could remain stagnant till the platform OS reach Apollo or beyond.........
Lumias still lacking far behind in customer's Care department.
Such as users non-replaceable battery only, nil memory card slot, files non-transferable through bluetooth, nil movie / Video direct viewing from websites etc.etc.
You've clearly never seen an Omnia 7. It has Gorilla glass and a aluminium chassis. It's pretty much indestructible!
awesome phone. dont need to carry my camera n laptop n phone. all 3 in one.. must have for everyone. thanks nokia..for the ultimate technology....
battery fix update is beginning to roll out.Check your devices for an update

for the valuable informations about cloud stored.
Still doubting Two answers !
1. Can Skydrive stored operated freely on offline ?
2. Is cloud storage 100% free from hackers like conventional memory card do ?
Cloud storage would be a first preference if qualify for
the above .........

Nokia lumia 800 is powerfull smart phone. I feel the differance in the following field.
IE 9 browser is fantastic.u get real experiance ; it support outlook web access and otlook web mail access . experiance is much better than real PC .you can read, sent, check your office exchange web access with in a second and same feel. the experiance is so great. now iam able to deliver my support to customer with out any delay.
2. Sky Drive . Future of your storage concept. it really great . if you have a windows live id . microsoft providing 30 GB cloud storage . it sync with windows phone.PC..no need to worry of data lost.
4.Office package support. its so great.
5.the metod of contact management and other microsoft concepts ; it really futuristic.
6.Xbox live and sync. you will be a great dad for your tech kids.
7.the interface is so simple and applications are flying like a rocket.
8.Zune sync is owsome . it make your media perfectly compatable with the device .
9.Nokia H/W ...Its genuine. not like othe copy cats .like samsung and LG

i work at the carphone warehouse and have been using the lumia 800 for about a month now as nokia gave us one. i have to say it is possibly the worst smartphone i have ever used! battery life is appauling and only lasts about 4 hours, the windows OS is terrible and it freezes alot. the camera isnt even that great. the only good thing about the phone is the strength of the screen. you only have to slightly touch it and it scratches but, it never smashes. sooo glad its not mine and i havnt paid for it!!
Still love my Nokia C7 over lumia 800 ........coz I could endlessly stored about 355 educative technical medical/engineering videos, 262 favourite full movies , 187 live concert videos, 13 victoria secrets fashion shows from 2008 ,74 modern house designing and interior decoration videos, my bible and 80 ebooks ,684 world geography short videos like humming birds to victoria water falls,79 ancient and medivial history from Hitler to Mahatma Gandhi stored in several 8gb to 16gb
memory cards as my library.
So Guys, what do you think a real smart fone is for with memory card slot ?????
atleast lumia 800 possess 8mp camera with video recording speed of 720p X 30fps,
....exactly equal to the same speed of Xperia S secondary(FFC) camera .
Hi there, does anyone know if this version will support BBC iplayer? Thanks
hi, can anyone tell me how to stop the auto rotate function...the moment my hand tilts the application roatates and how to stop vibration when u press the back key..
nishant, 17 Jan 2012Will the actual users post their experience with the phone and help the potential buyer. Here ... moreI have used both Lumia 800 and galaxy s2. As per my experience lumia is as fast as S2. And windows phone is super cool OS Wit rich user experience. Android is superior than Symbian but inferior to Windows phone. Windows phone is super smooth and you will really enjoy using it since u will be having a live menu not like dead one in other Operating systems. U can have ur own wallpaper change the tiles as per your need and many more. And last thing is build quality of lumia phones is fantastic.
Staci, 16 Jan 2012A very stylish external looks alone wouldn't help Nokia, coz, peoples are no more illiterate l... moreDo not agree with what you posted! Apple iPhone has got restricted OS, iPhone4 are selling like hot cakes around the world, mainly because of the stylish & classy looks.
Will the actual users post their experience with the phone and help the potential buyer. Here the people are just ranting about NOKIA should have included this and that without actually going to the store and trying out the phone. We want real users reviews and not of people who just troll..... Specs are not everything when buying a phone , but the experience is because after the initial euphoria of buying the phone is over a majority of people use the phone for few things regularly. Talk, SMS, music and some video watching along with taking some pics. I guess if lumia does all this properly , it scores major marks and that is what we want to know from real users.
