My wife have been using Lumia 800 for nearly a month,and so far she's very happy with the phone. Migrating from Iphone 3GS to Windows phone which is in fact not much a big change. Lumia 800 using Zune which is quite similar to Itunes for Iphone, and the best of all u can sync Zune through Itunes if you previously have media contents at your Itunes. Sadly Microsoft doesn't provide Zune for Mac user and you have to download Windows 7 converter for Mac from Cnet.com which is quite similar to Zune.
So far the apps especially "People" is refreshing as all the fb/twits contacts is neatly compiled. Internet explorer on par with safari(Iphone) and google(android). Camera average, me n my wife thinks iphone 4s the best video/camera. Youtube a bit blurry compared to my phone(P970 LG nova display). Bluetooth seems can't paired with my P970(a case of dejavu with Iphone?)Marketplace similar to Market(android) and Apps Store(Iphone) but not much apps (especially free ones)is available which I reckon Microsoft and third party developers will increase apps in future.
Otherwise Nokia Lumia 800 is a very beautiful phone which I secretly admire. Hopefully the next Nokia will have a few tweaks like HD graphics with HDMI output, a better camera, bluetooth connectivity with android and perhaps a merger of market apps with the android, it will gonna be a major talk-point.
AnonD-34518, 27 Dec 2011dude srsly ?? common u've got a windows OS and looking for apps ? if ur more of an app person ... moreits like saying go for Honda instead of BMW, BMW's are expensive,costly to maintain where as Hondas are cheaper easy to maintain thats the difference Lumia 800 creates BTW you forgot that there is 710 a cheaper alternate to lumia 800
AnonD-34518, 27 Dec 2011Plus u can jail break the iPhone and install all paid apps for free through "installous&q... moreout of millions of app available i have installed only few useful apps on my desktop so when i don't like to install crappy apps on my desktop why the hell i will install over 350000 apps on a phone its just a bullshit go advertise your iphone some where else like schools and if you want to compare your iphones superduper camera compare it with over a year old N8 which makes iphones camera look like a joke

i have a n8 for 1 year, no protector at all, 0 scratchs
WHY Omnia w is cheaper and better than this phone
1. Samsung has its on semiconductor division, they have in house production of microprocessors ets. you will surprise to know that Iphon 4s processor is manufactured y samsung.
2. In house camera manufacturing division.
3. In house electronics component manufacturing division.
Nokia has to purchase every thing from outside and that cost is transffered to cutomer.

whole plastic body man ^ except battery cover metal man ¥ .....only cheap LCD screen man.
over brightness, irritating eyes screen man?
Used this device for a month now and I have to say that this device is superb. OS is smooth, the functions are all there (except for a front camera but who uses it on a regular basis anyway...)
What I love most is the design of the phone. Fits nicely in your hands, the screen is awesome.
In terms of the OS, I feel in love with the FB, Twitter integration in the phone. There's no need to go in/out of any of your social network apps. Everything is a smooth flow from the homepage onwards.
Downside - the lack of apps as compared to iOS or Android.
Lumias are good fone for starter smart fone users,
...coming to physical structure quality and durability, Nokia is no doubt, positioning far ahead of others.
.......but on smart fone Arena, specifications and fone efficiency is more important, where Nokia is still roaming behind Samsung, Apple, Motorola and HTC.
It's good but I wonder if it will be able to perform each and every action performed by Windows!
