The Nokia Lumia 800 is the first phone that has been released by the collaboration of Nokia and Windows. I am a fan of Nokia phones and had heard a lot about the Windows phone system from xbox live marketing, and i was pleasantly surprised with how well this phone works!
The OS is simple and easy to use but looks really nice, using big blocks of colour to make it stand out. The integration of Xbox live has added some really fun and clever games to the system, however there are not as many to choose from compared to Apple and Android marketplace, but in time there will be more added and it will be able to contend with the competitors.
The phone itself is a nice candy bar design with a AMOLED capacitive touchscreen which has a 480 x 800 pixels resolution and is 3.7 inches big. which works very nicely and feels just right for this sort of phone.
The CPU is 1.4 GHz Scorpion which makes this phone really smooth and fast and has virtually no lag with day to day use.
The camera is 8 MP with Carl Zeiss optics which make it a rather nice camera, you wont be making professional looking photographs but it is still a very nice picture taken with this camera.
So over all a good phone that runs smoothly but lacking a little bit with the apps you can get but the future looks bright for this series of phone.
+Windows OS is slick and easy to use
+camera is good quality
+Phone runs very fast and has little lag
+Linked to Xbox Live so a nice selection of good games
-Not enough Apps compared to competitors
-screen can be broken easily if dropped
