Hi, I have had this Nokia Lumina 800 for 6 months now and its the worst phone i have ever had from Nokia, original phone would not give me full signal strength in a full coverage area or very low. Always missing calls because it was not ringing either and i get a missed call message 6 hours later, it was sent back under warrenty and i recieved a new one it was worse then the first one no calls recieved and lower signal strength in full coverage area. Don't buy it its obviously not a good working phone on Optus network.

My previous phone was a Sony Ericsson Xperia ARC...i decided that Windows Phone was the OS to go for... honestly Android has lot of potential if you mantain things working well.. You need to be very careful for you you install besides the constant upgrades and User experience is not so good... i still have an Android tablet (Asus Transformer 300) with the latest version of that OS.
Yes it has hundreds of apps, you can customize as much as you whish and you have the so open system that everyone apreciates....As for pratical in day use....well....it s not. constant hanging, apps close down for no reason etc...Well if you have Android you know what i mean...
So WP is the obvious choice if want to be different than Iphone which everybody has one, the ageing and doomed Symbian or the limited Blackberry OS.
I choosed Nokia, after careful reading. Nokia is so comited to this OS right now, so it provides you the best experience due to the exclusive content that comes along.
I+m not going to enter in details about WP, it has it s faults and it needs to polished ok. But is so damn pretty and user firendly...And the bundled apps from Nokia ( Drive, city, music) do the job.
The only letdown for me is the camera....I was expecting much more from this departing having in mind that Nokia was one of the best manufacturers out there when it came to do great camera phones. The fotos are not bad but my Xperia Arc was much better.
I do hope the wp 7.8 is available soon. The single core processor does wonders, no hip cuffs or lag when opening new apps...Impressive.
If want to change, choose Nokia and go for Windows Phone. And now it all fits with the nem Windows 8...

I bought my Lumia 800 and loved it but one major issue I was having was that anytime I listenened to music while web browsing, the phone would freeze and become unresponsive after listening to music for a short while. This happens at random with the only solution of holding the power button until the phone reboots.
Best phone used by me till date...bought it last week and i must say i m much more than satisfied with its performance...and believe me never listen to anyone who talks shit about this phone because this phone will never let you down.
