Nokia Lumia 800 Review


It's the end of the year and Nokia has finally announced its “Piece de resistance” handset – the Lumia 800. It's the first, of course in the series and is based on their MeeGo running N9 device only this one is, of course, running on the latest version...

Nokia has priced the Lumia 800 at Rs. 29,990 (MRP), which does make it one of the more expensive WP7 handsets on the market today. This could be a problem for the company as cheaper options like the HTC Radar could pose as a competitor. Granted we’re...

Nokia Lumia 800 Review - with such an enthusiastic reception at Nokia World, does the Lumia 800 live up to the expectations?


Expert review by: Jeffrey Van Camp (

Nokia Lumia 800


The Lumia 800 was Nokia's first Windows Phone and it's a nice one. Borrowing its design from the ill-fated N9, it's the first phase of Nokia's attempt to modernize itself and revive its dying smartphone market share in the United States and Europe....

Vivid AMOLED screen ; Solid design and curved glass ; Good custom apps ; Windows Phone 7.5 UI is easy to use

No front-facing camera ; No microSD ; Single-core processor ; Poor video quality ; No HSPA+ or 4G support ; Unlocked in the US

There are some downsides, like a lack of a front-facing camera, blurry video recording, and a camera that doesn't impress as much as Nokia boasts, but overall it's one of the best Windows Phones around.

Nokia Lumia 800 Review - Nokia's Brave New Foray into WP7


The Nokia Lumia 800 is without a doubt one of the most interesting devices produced by the iconic Finnish smartphone manufacturer in a long while. Expectations are high for the Lumia series, which represents Nokia's first foray into devices running...

Nokia Lumia 800 review: New beginnings


It will take crowds erupting in delight to silence the ring of the "burning platform" speech in the Nokia Lumia 800's ears. The speaker being Nokia CEO Stephen Elop and the burning platform Symbian.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support ; 3.7" 16M-color AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 480 x 800 pixel resolution ; Scratch resistant Gorilla glass display with anti-glare polarizer ; 8...

Display is much dimmer than the N9's display ; No Flash or Silverlight support in browser ; No USB mass storage (file management and sync pass only through Zune) ; No video calls and no front-facing camera either ; Non-user-replaceable battery ; No...

There's a lot riding on the Nokia Lumia 800 and the Finns put a lot of work into it - well, they worked for a long time anyway. The final result manages to impress, but also brings some disappointment.

Seattle Meets Finland


The Lumia 800 is the first lovechild birthed from the union of Microsoft and Nokia. As cool as it is, it's not yet available in the U.S., so it's probably destined to die on the vine.

Nokia Lumia 800 Review


If Nokia is looking to get back into the U.S. market, the Lumia 800 is a great device to crack the door open. Its sophisticated yet understated design is one of the most attractive we've seen, and it's matched by the sleekness of Windows Phone 7.5. If...

Sleek, sophisticated design, Sharp 8-MP camera, Strong battery life, Vibrant screen

Flimsy microUSB port, No front-facing camera, No 4G

Nokia Lumia 800 (magenta, unlocked)


The importance of the high-end Nokia Lumia 800--the more elite of Nokia's first-ever two Windows phones--can't be overstated (the other is the Nokia Lumia 710). Less than a year ago, the cell phone maker all but chucked its homegrown Symbian OS to get...

The Nokia Lumia 800 has a singular design, a stunning display, and a nice driving console in Nokia Drive

Camera and video quality on the Lumia 800 is poor, despite the fancy specs. A front-facing camera would make the phone more competitive. The Micro-SIM slot is hard to access

The unlocked Nokia Lumia 800 has an innovative design and gorgeous screen, but the poor camera quality and lack of a front-facing camera are major detractions.

Nokia Lumia 800 review


You might hear it said that Nokia is on a knife-edge, and that this old king of mobiles will live or die based on the success of its latest flagship

Genius, tactile design ; Mostly excellent build quality ; Brings out the best of Windows Phone ; AMOLED screen is great for general use

Tethering and other advanced features are missing ; Phones on other platforms have better cameras and performance

This is an attractive option if you're a fan of Windows Phone and great design. It's far from perfect, though, and Nokia's best is yet to come.

Nokia Lumia 800 review


Reviewing the Lumia 800 is a hard and, dare I say, unprecedented task. Never before have we seen a phone like Nokia's N9 — a benchmark setter in some design aspects, yet a complete dead end in terms of software ecosystem — and now the 800 arrives...

Excellent design ; Attractive display ; Brightest future of any recent Nokia phone

No Internet Sharing ; Fiddly volume rocker and lock key ; No front-facing camera

Nokia's vanguard Windows Phone has arrived, all dressed up in the N9's clothing
