"The future of Nokia? Review of the latest Nokia Lumia 800."

I have now had the Nokia Lumia 800 for 3 months and I have put it through its paces both as a leisure phone and a business phone.
The looks and finish of this mobile are top quality. I really appreciate the thought process that has gone into this phone. The screen sits up from the body of the phone which gives it definition and makes the screen very comfortable to use. The screen is also very robust. I store my mobile in my trouser pockets and I have not one scratch on the screen. The phone also comes with a very neat rubber sleeve.

This phone operates on Windows Mango OS and in conjunction with the processor in the Nokia Lumnia it seems to be very fast. I would say slightly faster than the I-phone 4s if I have to compare. The dashboard is very simple and operating apps are straight forward. I like the fact you can easily pin favourite apps contacts, tracks etc., to the main screen.
The quality of the camera is very good and the use of the Carl Zeiss lens gives crisp 8MP photographs. One problem I found was on default settings the picture is always brighter in the centre. There does not seem to be an option to take off the weight meter (which adjusts the white balance).

One major disadvantage is no front facing camera. What are Nokia thinking??? Another disadvantage is the number of apps available that are top quality. I think there is obviously room for development and there is a market for these apps however with the market favouring apple and android something needs to be done by Windows to make the apps cutting edge.
Overall: Advantages, Excellent screen and display, camera, very fast operating system.
Disadvantages; no front camera, and lack of top apps.

I do feel that the price tag of around £400 is worth it as the phone has some great features including user friendly interface, turn by turn GPS voice navigation, great camera, easy to edit and produce Microsoft office documents.

Overall I would give this phone 8.5 out of 10.

Hope this is usefull.
