I hate it
I bought it and I wish I never had. Garbage phone and Nokia fobs off your support and technical questions with copy and paste answers. Terrible device.
Internet explorer is crap, Bing useless, Zune is just bloody terrible (and worse if you have a mac at home because the interface is hopeless). I downloaded the Tango update and got none of the extra features and whats more the ability to watch web videos such a youtube stopped working (it was average before hand anyway).
The phone is probably ok in terms of hardware, but as usual everything Microsoft touches is just junk.
But then again, Nokia Maps is pretty crap and Nokia drive 3/5 times gave me the wrong address.
My advice STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM THIS PHONE!
Do yourself a favour and buy an android or iPhone.

Nokia , my friend you invented something really cool this time, but on the same time u dessapointed us very badly, madly. In this price range u would have given something fare to the buyers, as this product is so unfare. For this price you would have add a front camera, a mass storage mode, bluetooth file sharing (really a shame), a standard sim slot and etc. In the marketplace we have to pay even for the Angry Bird... Actually double the price like a phone which's got the same features, may be even better. What a waste of money indeed! Sorry Nokia, We are going Samsung! Bye bye

As far as Lumia 800 is concerned he told me about it's drawbacks which is quite a long list,but few of them are:
1) No video calls and no front-facing camera either.
2) Cannot set MP3 Songs as ring tones directly.
3) Bluetooth can only be used to connect wireless headset,not for transferring files from one phone to another,which is very surprising.
4)Phone does not charge in switched off mode.
5)Cannot answer/reject calls without unlocking screen.
These are the main problems with Lumia which i think are enough to change the minds of people who are planning to buy this one.
Guys, are you able to get the new update Windows 7.8 ?
if yes, please let me know how to update? thanks

Whether to buy a lumia 800 or an ace2. Only downside in ace2 is its 5mp camera. Whould u tell me what the troubles the store owner told with u about this phone...? By the way how the ace2 did cost you?
Went to buy lumia yesterday but the guy at the store advised me not to buy the Lumias (800/900)he said that people are having lot of issues with these phones and they're not performing well,so i bought galaxy ace-2 which is really a good phone.
Just bought a new one! :) .. This phone is really amazing !
Its only drawbacks are the no-bluetooth file transfer and the low sound of the loudspeaker :(

Thusi, 17 Jul 2012Hay guys, what's this bluetooth problem everyone talking about? So finally you're saying to me... moreThere is no BT file transfer protocol supported in Windows Phone 7.5
For the Lumia 800, the listed Bluetooth profiles are: A2DP, AVCTP, AVDTP, AVRCP, GAVDP, HFP, HSP, PBAP, RFCOMM, SPP.
The missing FTP (File Transfer Profile), OPP (Object Push Profile) and GOEP (Generic Object Exchange Profile) means that you can't send files, music, etc.to/from the Lumia 800 over Bluetooth.
Hay guys, what's this bluetooth problem everyone talking about? So finally you're saying to me that I can't share any mp3 with another phone via bluetooth? That reason alone is more than enough to kick this phone out if it's true....
