hi guys i would like to share my experience...
I am from South Africa my phone came from UK from carphone warehouse..
I am using it for 4 days now.
my past phones are samsung galaxy s2,nokia n9 and now the lumia 800..
firstky none are perfect phones.
regarding the lumia 800,half off the posts i see here are either haters or people faking they used this phone.
The OS is excellent in my view,Yes the N9 multitasking is much better.
The battery is the weakest off the three phones and it is a bit off a low point but i have learnt to manage it so it seesm to be improving.
As for freezing guys the phone does not freez at all,my G2 used to freeze this does not.
The design is a beuty really and great fell.
weight could have been down woyld have been better.
The front camera for me makes no differnce.I would have liked a memory card slot and bluetooth transfer oh and yes the sync is a problem but you can get your contacts transferred by downloading the app
the apps on droid are better no doubt.
i must say i really like the phone it needs a few touch ups but overall it seems a very nice phone.
the apps like profiles and sms could help..
In my view if it had a few more apps and better battery it would be about the best on the market.
the strange thing is the snyc with outlook being a windows OS
I'm using Nokia N8, and I think is best compared to the Lumia and N9. Another thing, is it possible for Nokia to have a feature like BIS and BBM like blackberry.
To be true motorola handsets are way ahead in terms of design and performance than nokia..motorola mob. Are eyecandy. .they are real stylish as i had checkd them in this site in motorola handsets section..they r absolutely stunning! Mwah moto.
i bougt a lumia 800..its damn freaky puney..but the music overdelay with negoris n cpu capacity is poor..cam proxy is a wild stuff..
Guys! pay attention,there is Bluetooth to the phone,i dont know why every1 saying there isnt!
You just swype to the right go to settings and from ther Bluetooth...
or maybe there is a problem at your phone!
1 week with Nokia Lumia 800.. Its a waste of money
how I wish I can get a refund!!! After every phone call the phone hangs and restarts on its own. Very complicated applications. The typing keyboard very small. If you want to use this phone you must have a computer!!! Camera is good.

about the frozing things,i had him for 2 days,using it with no rest and he works fine without freezing... maybe it something with your use!?
I don't understand nokia's pricing policy, pricing it at par with samsung-s2 & htc-sensation... what were they thinking....
Nokia N8 is better than this because somehow other features are the same, but Nokia N8 has 12 MP camera which I love it.
hahaha....for nokia this is new bt for other company(like htc) its already old.nokia is the wast of money...
The fon has btry isue,no secndry cam,no bluetooth..Nd also it hangs often..Plz stay away frm dis fon..Gud ads and below average fones dats d moto of nokia nw..

get the nokia n9 instead it got a superior OS... moreGuy, you may be misguided !
Even Android and Apple OS are trembling inside , knowing the fact that Window platform will overtake their position,once reach window-8/Apollo OS platform.
Infact, MEEGO is a dying OS, it will completely faded away within few months.
windows phone is a dead platform, do not buy.
get the nokia n9 instead it got a superior OS, with multitask, better camera quality and battery life. brighter and bigger screen,
alxabm, 03 Jan 2012Why this phone needs to support 720p HD contents if memory is not expandable? Even a compresse... moreUhm... It supports shooting HD-video... Not the same as storing HD-Movies on it...

Also... Email the pictures to yourself.
After experiencing the dissapointment of owning the N8, i had a little go at the lumia 800, still disspointing really, froze within the first half hour of turning it on, and the worst part is that there is no blue tooth! took some cool pics and couldn't send them to myself!
