The aesthetics of this phone are superb.
The hardware and UI make this phone one of the most fashionable ever made.
Try it out yourself and make your own decision.
The only con imo is the camera, considering its a flagship. But the performance on a single core is far better than any dual core Android or A5 on the 4S.

....what is the use if you could not edit documents in your phone, just able viewing has no value.
moreover you cannot call lumia 800 smart fone category as there is no video call facility.
I think Nokia gone mad now.we Ar going to use 4G but this phone no front cam no internal memory
I accept this os has certain restrictions and limitations ... on its launch it had many but already many of them have been rectified with 7.5 mango .. even these restrictions will be reduced soon ... but for guys who cannot cope up with these restrictions and "IF YOU WANT A COMPLETE OS THIS IS NOT THE MOBILE FOR U" ... And if you want only Nokia wait for the second generation Nokia windows phones ... it will be a complete smart phone which will rule the world ...

Those who haven't used windows phone 7 first try it ... it has a very new look unlike all other OS which looks similar ... and it is very smooth and doesn't lag at all ... AND PLEASE DON'T BELIEVE IN SPECS ALONE ... if you want smooth performance without draining ur battery go for this mobile ...

I have an advice for all of you who accessed the comments to see what the people actually thinks about this phone, go to your carrier and ask for a demonstration of windows phone, most of the people who writes here seem to have a very weird and deep hate for Microsoft and windows phone 7, the funny thing is that most of them i am pretty sure is speaking without even having used a phone with windows phone 7 before, i could speak about my excellent personal experience with the system but i will be flagged as fanboy, this is something you need to give a try, do not listen to all the haters just create an opinion by personal experience.

Hope all this was helpful. Regards.
Will we have to pay to use Zune as well,then this phone is not a phone that everyone can afford to run an buy,Nokia as made a Big mistake choosing Windows instead of Meego or Symbian an even Android,just wonder if this will be the end of Nokia now,as Windows was made by Mr Elop just to help is previous employee Microsoft have some hope of succedeing in the mobile market
Now most of people focus one 's attention on smart phones. Can Nokia release special Tablet PC which can connect to LCD projector, Flat screen TV and also running by Window OS ect. .?
It's probably one of the most expensive mid ends (feature and specification wise) ever.
In reality this window lumia 800 is only 49% of the Great Nokia fone expectation....after waiting for a long 8 months.
anyway, Nokia N9 is one of best original (no Xerox copy )fone design with almost all specifications that a smart fone require.
no real multitask, no bluetooth file transfers, no usb mass storage, u have to use zune software for everything and its as bad a itunes.
no front face camera, no usb slot, u only can install apps from microsoft store.
dont buy this terrible phone! get the n9 if u like the design there is a white version

It is great on working with office documents like excel and word, and can open powerpoint slides but you can't edit them on phone. You can watch these kind of videos on youtube for more info. without a doubt you can't find any other phone to work with word or excel :)
i read a few more comments here now and i see a lot of confused ppl. Wake up guys, this is not Windows, its Windows Phone, its not Windows compatible with PC.
I think half of the windows lovers in this thread like the Lumia 800 becoz they misunderstood and dont understand the fundamental difference between win and winphone, and dont understand that intel instruction set is not compatible with ARM instruction set.
The other half is blind nokia followers. So maybe in total there is 1 or 2 persons here who understands what Lumia 800 is and still like it. The rest of us who understands it do not like it and wudnt dream of wasting money on this POS OS
