The Nokia Lumia 800 is an amazing smartphone with brilliant display, powerful hardware, beautiful user interface, great camera and above average battery life. This handset comes with a price-tag of Rs.24,999. It is the best Windows Phone 7.5 powered smartphone currently available in the Indian market. The Nokia Lumia 800 comes with a head-turning design and powerful specs. The amazing curved polycarbonate shell gives this device a very premium feel.
This handset is absolutely fast, even though it does not sport a dual-core processor. The 1450 mAh battery allows us to use the device for a single day, but the company should have packed a large battery similar to the HTC Titan II, so that the phone can be used for few extra hours without charging on a normal use. The 8 megapixel camera is quite impressive. However, this handset does not packs a front-facing camera for video calls.
On the whole, we were quite impressed with the design and built quality of this device. Windows Phone 7.5 is definitely a great Operating System, while the Metro UI is refreshing and looks extremely beautiful. Nokia might soon launch the Nokia Lumia 900 in India, which comes with a large display and better specs. If you don’t want to wait for the Lumia 900, then you can go ahead with the Nokia Lumia 800. We personally liked this smartphone and we will rate the Nokia Lumia 800 at 7/10.
