i work in a phone shop ive got one and love it.It just works! Yep battery is not great but a fix is on the way and through experience most high end smartphones are on a par. You can talk about specs until you are blue in the face I just want a smartphone to do the job. So its not Android , and this is a bad thing??? Have an open mind try one guys variety is the spice of life there is room for everyone.Spread the Love.

Not value for money product . no bluetooth sharing , no music no videos .
After one year nokia came up with this.... They could have launched this phone the very next day they got collaborated with microsoft....
How could Nokia make the switch to Windows,as they use to produce phones that made it so simple to be able to transfer Music an photos between other peoples phones an pcs,Bluetooth now useless on the Lumia 800,an the Screen taken up so much space because of the stupid buttons on Windows phones,you to download themes for my Nokia phones but not with this phone,Galaxy S2 worth more value than this phone,an if you best settings on this phone batterylife can last 2-3 days
Got a problem with Lumia, this is my second handset from Orange now the phone has serious issues
extremely poor battery, not detecting when charger is in, screen freezing eventually the phone shut down and never restarted.
Again diabolical battery life, when I send a MMS the phone reboots, still freezes and worst of all will randomly drop calls.
For such an expensive handset these issues should not happen.
Orange however have put my status back to upgrade as I literally told them to stick this phone, and I will be choosing another phone when there is one that tickles my fancy, but I will be using my old trusty Blackberry Storm 2 from now on never its never let me down.
I used to be a Nokia fan, since the NGAGE, N95 times. But now Nokia is really behind the times. Lumia has nice design but is no match for Samsung Galaxy SII and iPhone. BTW: keen to go on WP7 but still no good phone around after so much time of WP7 in the market. Minimum requirements are that of GSII plus 64 or 128GB space, 4.5'' screen, 2500mAh battery. If Nokia is the manufacturer so much the better!!!
Mobilemaster, 30 Nov 2011Please compare this phone with the Samsung Galaxy S2, or with the Galaxy Nexus. I know that th... moreYou only need high-enough specifications to be able to achieve the desired user experience and performance.
Both WP7 and iOS seem to be able to acheive more with lower specs - and so, to these OS'es - Ghz, RAM, Cores - isn't as important.
Not saying this device is perfect though.. I'm looking forward to the Lumia 900 - it seems to be more a high-end device, whereas this seems to be closer to mid-range.
People, remember that this is Nokia's first attempt on its new OS. If Nokia was able to to come up with such a great device as the Nokia Lumia, imagine the succeeding phones that will come out of Nokia's turf. I'm uber excited..

Nokia - old name and no more! i`m not against Nokia but at this time smart phones like iPhone/Samsung GS are the best, just saying Nokia feel too old! No compare between Nokia and real smart phones (iPhone/Samsung) About my self, will be totally no way to think about Nokia from now on!
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2011is that why its out selling every android phone in Europe? don't pass your opinion off as fact.It's not outselling every Android device.
jacson, 29 Nov 2011this is a very good thing which is going to lunch nokia.....lumia 800....no body cant beat him... morePlease compare this phone with the Samsung Galaxy S2, or with the Galaxy Nexus. I know that this has a great design, but the specs are the most important, and I am talking about specs now. Samsung is already in 2012, and Nokia in 2011.
mobiledocter, 29 Nov 2011u dont,no android is very bad os u cant campere to windows is best os No, you're wrong. WP is so limited. NO card slot, no this, not that... :( The UI is so boring, I hate it!! I am not here to bash Nokia! I am here to tell what I saw with my eyes. I hold some WP devices in my hands. I have a bad opinion about the OS, sorry. Meego could save Nokia from death. I had hold a Nokia N9 in my hands, and it looks fantastic! :) I have seen many smart phones with my eyes, and the N9 is just awesome!! :>

Honestly, I have a bad opinion about the OS. The Windows Mobile 6.5 looks much cooler than this one. The UI is so BORING! This OS is so limited as well. :( I am NOT here to bash Nokia. I appreciate that they are one of the best in camera phones. I am here to say that the future is not Windows anymore.
