Nokia Lumia 800 Review

 

Is Nokia's Lumia 800 the best Window 7.5 'Mango' smartphone on the planet?

Tough polycarbonate chassis ; Free Nokia Drive sat nav ; Camera and screen

Average battery life ; Media still a pain to transfer ; Port flaps won't last

Have the battery life issues finally been rectified?

Quality design ; Clever interface ; Speedy browser ; Intuitive contact linking ; Xbox integration

Internet text display dodgy at times ; No Flash video ; Zune player takes ages to copy video across ; Video recording not impressive ; Battery issues still prevail

UPDATED: We've now updated this review based on usage of the Nokia Lumia 800 for around four months, which has included the first formal OS update, so take a look at our updated findings, complete with star rating.

Nokia Lumia 800 - Pocket-lint

 

Get this and you will be deemed an agitator and not someone with just another iDevice or a big screened Android smartphone.

AMOLED screen, Nokia Drive, Nokia Music, Design,

No front facing camera, no nfc, no replaceable battery

The Nokia Lumia 800 is far from perfect, but those niggles are just that, niggles.

Nokia's first Windows Phone smartphone looks the part but does it play it?

Beautiful design, Well built, Excellent ergonomics and basic performance, The best Windows Phone phone, Nokia Drive and Mix Radio are useful extras

Nokia Lumia 800 review

 

The first fruit from Nokia's alliance with Windows Phone 7 is an impressive combo

The 800 looks cool, feels cooler and has multimedia skills to rival those of the 4S

The Nokia Lumia 800 is probably Nokia's best smartphone so far. It has a sturdy and sleek construction, with a vivid display, paired with refreshing software from Microsoft. If you are just upgrading to a smartphone or you have one of Nokia's Symbian...

Nokia Lumia 800

 

We like the design and OS but there are too many holes in the Lumia's feature set

Small ; nicely built ; refreshing OS ; built-in Microsoft apps ; good cross-platform support

Video lacks detail ; no Flash support ; few third-part apps ; no wireless streaming
