I got the phone because it looked brill, but it really doesnt meet the nokia standards.
Apart from the obvious disadvantages:
• no front camera
• no ability to 'print screen'
• having to pay for apps that all other phones give you for free
My speaker breaks on a weekly basis, so i have to turn phone on and off to hope it works, which it has untill now where i cant make a phone call.
My apps that are pinned to home page freeze all the time so i have to turn phone off so they work.
My internet is very slow although i am always connected to wifi when at home.
Lots of other stuff aswell. Personally i would NOT reccomend the lumia 800, i have never had so many problems with a phone.
Ohh and no i have not dropped it or broke the phone in anyway since ive had it.
If you don't know quality you won't like this phone. It's fantastic. Way better than the cluttered mess of Android...

there are also methods for hacking non-"Qualcomm" phones but that requires opening the device up and soldering some parts off.. it is dangerous for the phone and for the user...
