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.

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.

Review: Nokia Lumia 800


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 best Windows Phone we’ve seen yet. The AMOLED display really pops, and onscreen interactions are snappy and smoothly executed

No front-facing camera, and the 8 MP rear-facing camera is subpar compared to peers like the Samsung Galaxy S II and iPhone 4S. Not actually available in the U.S. yet

Nokia Lumia 800 review


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


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...

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

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

Windows Phone provides a modern and attractive UI and the Lumia 800's hardware maintains Nokia's reputation for high build quality

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...

While it's unclear in what form or on what carrier the Lumia 800 will arrive stateside, it's clear that something superficially similar to the Lumia 800 is in store for AT&T at least. Among the rest of the Windows Phone contenders, it's arguably neck...

Nokia Lumia 800 Review


There's a whole lot riding on the Lumia 800 . Nokia's first Windows Phone and the handset that will usher in - so the company hopes - a new era of smartphone relevance and a turnaround in fortunes. Question is, will the Lumia 800 be Finnish enough for...

It may not be the first time we’ve seen the Lumia 800’s design language, but Nokia’s unibody style is no less appealing second time around. Elegant and tactile, it’s a clean step away from the “just a big screen” ethos we’ve seen proliferate among...
