Lumia 800

Design

The Nokia Lumia 800 is a sleek and stylish handset. Big but not too big, it has a 3.7” screen which is AMOLED capacitive touch screen with a protection of Corning Gorilla Glass. It is available in bright colors like black, cyan and magenta shades.

The Super AMOLED screen resolution with a 3.7 inches screen is an experience in itself. Windows Phone’s living tiles look cool too. Everything that supports the display is suitable for the phone as well. Also, the phone’s dull finish has transpired the Lumia as not just the regular bar that is the inspiration of most other phone models. This phone is easy to carry because it weighs 142g only. It has a Quad-band GPRS/ GSM/ EDGE support along with a “Quad-band 3G” alongwith “14.4 Mbps HSDPA” as well as “5.7 Mbps HSUPA” support.

The Nokia Lumia 800 also has a GPS receiver containing A-GPS support as well as free life time navigation guided  through voice. It has the facility of Bluetooth v 2.1 having A2DP along with EDR. There is an impressive deep coherent integration of SNS through the interface. The loudspeaker is better than some of the other phones like Xperia Neo V. The set includes an accelerometer, proximity censor and a compass.

The main flaws are that there is only the back camera which will not be convenient once the feature of Skype is introduced. It also has a music player that cannot run without ZING. Moreover, its display is much dimmer than the N9’s display. There is no flash or silver light support in the browser. Plus there is no USB mass storage, no video calls and no memory card slot. It has a non user replaceable battery. The talk time is up to 13 hours (2G) and 9 hours 30 min (3G). Also it has a stand by up to 265 hours (2G) and up to 335 hours (3G).

The processor is single-core with a speed of 1.4GHz and an astounding internal storage of 16 GB. The camera is an excellent 8mp camera which can compete any other digital camera in the market. The speed of the phone is pretty good because of the 512MB RAM. The fate of the company rests upon Windows Phone Nokia being a success and much of that weight falls on the shoulders of the Lumia 800. It won’t carry it alone, but it’s the leader of the pack, the attention grabber.

Inside

It supports an 8 MP camera with a Carl Zeiss Lens; however, it is somewhat of a disappointment when it comes to capturing the shots because it is too slow and too fussy. The handset of this gadget can store up to 16 GB memory and this is where it ends because there are no micro SD slots which can expand the memory. Plus Music player owes big time to Nokia Mix Radio. The functionality is limited, but hey, it’s free!

Positive Side

Nokia Lumia 800 is a hi-tech phone and has a mid range price so its way cheaper than Android sets from Samsung and Sony Ericsson.
