Nokia Lumia 800 Review
It's been a while since Nokia has given me a phone to try out. It was July 2008 when Nokia has given me a Nokia N82 to try out for two weeks. I was still new in Singapore then and I was using my Sony Ericsson phone. It was a great experience and their logistics for delivery and pick-up was awesome.

This time, I was contacted by Nokia to try out their latest phone Nokia Lumia 800. It was a two week trial period and I basically enjoyed using the phone. Nokia Lumia 800 uses a micro SIM but since I don't have an extra micro SIM, I wasn't able to test the SMS and call function of the Nokia Lumia 800. I'm a current iPhone user so I would somehow compare the Nokia Lumia 800 to the iPhone.

Now let me start with the good points of the Nokia Lumia 800. What impressed me the most is the 3.7" AMOLED ClearBlack glass touchscreen. The visual display is very clear and when you touch the screen it responds quickly. Nokia Lumia 800 is operating in Windows 7 platform and it runs fast compared to my iPhone.

Nokia Lumia 800 has the basic functions you need in your phone: SMS, making calls and email. What set it apart from the other phones is its camera, which is 8 Megapixels, auto focus with Carl Zeiss Optics with 2x LED Flash and HD Video.

If you love your iPhone and you're worried that Nokia Lumia 800 won't give you the wide selection of apps and games, well you're mistaken. Almost all of those apps and games on iTunes are in Nokia's Marketplace. And if you're a gamer, you will absolutely love the XBOX Live experience. You read it right, you can play your favorite XBOX Live games in your Nokia Lumia 800.

Now for the points that I didn't like. Nokia Lumia 800 has this slick classy design but the charging slot on top of the phone was a bother. I'm just not sure whether after months of using it, it will be detached.

Another thing that bothered me is when I view photos. It just displays differently in Nokia Lumia 800 than in my iPhone or in my laptop. Even photos from my iPhone or my laptop looks great, in Nokia Lumia 800 the color and quality looks off. Anyway, you can see my Nokia Lumia 800 captured photos.

If you are looking for a new phone, Nokia Lumia 800 is great choice! With the classy design and pumped features, you won't go wrong. And it is far cheaper than the iPhone when you get a subscription plan.

This definitely sounds like it's a good phone. And I'm sure it can equally measure up to the iPhone, but because iPhone has corrupted me, I am forever loyal to the brand. :P It's just a matter of brand loyalty, nothing personal really. :P hehe

Cool! thanks for the great review. Timely because my husband's phone is broken and he wants to replace it to a new one either iPhone or Samsung, i will have to show this Nokia to him who knows he might consider it for purchase

I don't have an iPhone and I am really lousy when it comes to technology lol. MY 7 year old daughter knows more about my SG Captivate than I do.

This phone was famous a couple of years ago when iPhone 4 just came out. I almost got myself a Nokia but unfortunately, Nokia devices here in US aren't that durable compare to Nokia from Singapore or Philippines. So, I stuck myself with iPhone instead.

I have read different reviews of this phone. And, I think it's quite good when you're looking for a cheaper phone compared to Apple's Iphone.

Recently I bought a new phone and actually up to now I was still checking the features of it. Thanks for sharing your experiences with your phone.

I've seen the advertisement of this phone and I was in awe the first time I saw it!
