Without front camera and External memory slot, no use as far as my concern.
sks, 04 Dec 2011This phone will do well if Microsoft supports USB on the GO, NFC, a more open file management.... moreas someone stated below look how mess up the security of android right now, one reason the open file management of the OS, even myself i will not use android for any online/financial transaction,who knows what are lurking inside those Innocent file folders, hahaha, and for productive apps maybe you should rethink IOS and WP7, but for games ios and android, but i dont think android in the long run can acquire vast high quality game catalogue from IOS due to piracy,
Despite my N97 Mini being ... well, kinda crap, I still use it because Nokia's navigation software is actually quite good. Or at least, it was on Symbian.
Why on earth would they leave out routing options in Nokia Drive? I may as well use Bing Maps.
I will still be getting the Lumia 800 when my plan's up, as I've been loving WP7.5. But I was really hoping for a lot more from Nokia on the software front.
n9 have ALOT better camera, windows phone have horrible jpeg compression that ruins details and the colors, ltos of color noise
lol, 04 Dec 2011wp7 is a waste. why put the windows badge on something that can't run .exe but has a 1ghz or b... moreGreat,but this is Mango 7,5 and it is much better than wp7. just wait when wp8 update. this is the next big os. No doubt anymore. wp is almost jst a year old and this is damx good.
Hmm.. too early to tell if its going to be goo, hey GSMarena? i say you would call it if it was a great phone. I really believe that. If it was awesome you usually say so, and you didnt say so about this one.
Damn Nokia, I thought nokia will bring mass storage, on the go, bt file transfer and all good stuf from symbian os, but no they make a Via mobile. We have to do every thing via. If so I will buy iphone.
Hi all, any1 in here had lumia 800? i wonder what is material of side button(volume, lock, camera button)? its plastic with paint or aluminum? thanks
This phone will do well if Microsoft supports USB on the GO, NFC, a more open file management. till then its N8/N9 for me. If I wanted a good app support I would have preferred IOS or Android. The very reason most people go for Symbian or meego is the openness, good hardware integration with OS, battery life and the number of apps comes last. Nokia needs to realize that. Does anybody know if there is an NFC chip in there? Does it work with Nokia suite?
It's clearly evident that most here are delusional or unrealistic.
As a a long time symbian user, i realize symbian's time is up, yes they are improving it with anna/belle, but the general purchasing public isn't going to embrace any system that starts with the name "symbian" anymore.
Get over it, i did.
The n9, wish it had more support, but it doesn't, hopefully some of the things people like about the n9 will live on in apollo.
I see the 800 as a second choice to the iphone. As far as android is concerned, that's just a symbian clone with better icon's and a more catchy name. It's security and system management is a god damn mess, the real question is, are you operating an android phone or is it operating you?
Yes i own an android device and i just feel like it's a disorganized mess.
By the end of next year, adults will choose ios, then windows, after that it will be android for kids.
Fruitcake, 04 Dec 2011Just to Nokia phones with Symbian an there were the Best an Easiest to tranfer data between ph... moreyeah yeah yeah, all the stuff you said are lacking, but do you use it every hour and translate the features in a more streamlined and excellent user experience---NOOOPY, look how belle looks like now, an android copycat like bada the poor man's android,let us not deny the fact symbian could not already compete with Ios for high end and high paying market, nor to android which had a broader market spectrum, why would i buy $350 nokia 701 belle which i can buy android xperia ray or wp7 htc radar at the same price range, which are better, and symbian is already losing ground in mid tier devices already drastically, and why would nokia invest another billion dollar to symbian os which they had already invested for too long that dont get them nowhere and they'll be filling bankruptcy before the meego's ecosystem mature, in business perspective the obvious is clear, both meego and symbian are dying mobile os with no future coz right now the competition are not all about the shiny2x and fluid the OS are, but how mature and relevant the ecosystem are? look what happen to webOS and the stagnant market of bada, they are good if not better than symbian and meego,
Just to Nokia phones with Symbian an there were the Best an Easiest to tranfer data between phones an pcs,an had the N8 over a year,then Nokia an Mr Elop made the Wrong Decision choosing Windows,as you are to Restricted with downloading,an Bluetooth useless with Windows.Lumia 800 to over Valued so it made me purchase the Samsung Galaxy S2 an its Worth much better Value,Memory cards an Bluetooth sending an recieving more usefull,Nokia sorry you have made the Wrong Decisions picking Mr Elop an Windows,all Mr Elop was bothered about is helping is old employees Microsoft gain some success in the Mobile Market an downgrade Nokia so then Microsoft will buy Nokia in the near future
wp7 is a waste. why put the windows badge on something that can't run .exe but has a 1ghz or better cpu ? running exes would be a great selling point.

Meego is just like webOS beautiful by os itself but without ecosystem, its just a hw with sw for making calls, text, basic web browsing, and all the basic stuffs a smartphone can do, if thats what you want. But consider this ecosystem with music store-zune, cloud base storage - skydrive, xbox live system, a marketplace with decent apps and games, it makes your whole experience of a smatphone more justified,
There are way too many software limitations of the OS to make this phone interesting. It's ridiculous that the OS is missing out at such important things like real multitasking, USB mass storage function and DivX support. Except for that the whole WP approach is wrong, why force people to use Zune, why downscaling photos when one wants to e-mail them? And why is the OS closing running applications on its own without the user wanting to do so? As a Nokia user one also wonders what happend with the TV-out and FM-transmiter among other things? Sorry Nokia, but this phone is not satisfying. I would gladly had bought the N9 if it was given some support. But Lumia is not an interesting phone and at a price simmilar to Samsung Galaxy SII and Iphone 4S the Lumia 800 has exceptional chances to become the shelf-warmer of the year!
