Is NOKIA set to fire or kindle the smart phone market again ? too early to predict. Following is a pile of immaculate user opinions, reviews ( they designedly left at major forums ) on finnish brand's latest attempt LUMIA800
Im using this phone for 5 days now. Im having trouble with the battery life. I leave home at 7am and by 1pm the battery is already consumed. This is if i leave the data connection, 3G, checking emails, friends status, using apps, calls and txt messaging. My previous iphone4 was better than this because it lasted until 7pm. But if i turn off the data connection, battery lasts till 8pm. Do people here experience this too? Im wondering if i bought a faulty lumia 800
Just dial ##634# and then check battery status if it shows law
Nokia "bluetooth headset 803" is the best currently available in the markets, but Lumina 800 windows platform does not support it.
I like the text scrolling smoothness,....but one thing is very clear , files encryption and text files transfer/manipulation is not supported on Lumina fones
An excellent nokia headset that is best for music and compatible with any nokia phone, Nokia Bluetooth Headset,BH-214
Bluetooth supports voice transfer but not data
We have to purchase a "new case" every time the old battery replaced by Nokia servicing centre ?
I think it will be very expensive for the customer
To change your ringtone into your own personal song , go to zune add ringtone and enjoy
Personally, I've had this phone for a couple of days.. and its been okay so far, however thats bieng said my battery tends to go rather quickly
Do hell with android....THIS DEVICE GOT STYLE......it is really awesome....i mean i used the android phone earlier but this man... This is something that i never had....android is for boring nerds.....i like to stay cool ....THE FUTURE IS NOKIA LUMIA.....
To change your ringtone into your own personal song, cut an mp3 to less or equal of 39 seconds,make it less than 1 MB DRM- free MP3 file. You also have to change its genre to Ringtone
This mobile is extremely over priced !! i got a samsung focus ( runs on windows mango too) on ebay.in for 14k !! and compared with this mobile , the display in focus was way more awesom than this ( it's a super AMOLED too , same 480 X 800 pixels).. it has a bigger 4 inch screen (compared to 3.7) and wider viewing angles !! I also took pics in both and compared , i found the samsung focus to have a tremendously better cam than this ( i mean to say that even though lumia 800 uses 8MP cam, the lens is not good at all) .. the only advantage this mobile has is that it has 1.4 Ghz processor vs focus's 1Ghz .. i find the 1Ghz good enough for the apps in marketplace and i never had to wait for anything to open !! I'd advice ppl to buy focus on comparison to lumia 800 !! I've used it for few weeks now and its great
Lumia 800 is awesome and ten times better than samsung omniya as its display is far better
There is no secondry camera.. and data transfer only via pc..very costly,, cannnot download vedio and song via browser directly
In the age of 3G , Lumia is not providing front facing camera
In the case of applications its just the starting
Samsung & HTC WP7 devices have FFC & video call capability
I just feel like the software of wp7 is for people with bad eye sight, everything is huge on the main display, are they targeting elders?
In one word excellent
I prefer Motorola droid Razr xt910 over both current Nokia and Samsung products for possessing a solid durable body designed with max. functional capabilities
Windows app market has already crossed 50000 mark in 2 months
No bluetooth file transfer, no nfc, got less memory. N9 has 1gb ram and a 64gb version. N9 only missing whatsapp
If ur more of an app person go for ios or android !
Its just the starting.
And even android struggled in the starting for about 1.5yrs. It was galaxy S which made android popular. Just check out the figures Nokia has already shipped 40million LUMIA phns in the market.
More the number of apps more the possibility of having good apps !! In windows u find less apps and most are crappy !! If u don't want apps get nokia 1100 :\
No app for video calls on N9. Even skype doesnt support videocalls on n9, also, the nfc only works with nokia nfc capable phones, there are very few of those on the street.
My wife have been using Lumia 800 for nearly a month,and so far she's very happy with the phone. Migrating from Iphone 3GS to Windows phone which is in fact not much a big change. Lumia 800 using Zune which is quite similar to Itunes for Iphone, and the best of all u can sync Zune through Itunes if you previously have media contents at your Itunes. Sadly Microsoft doesn't provide Zune for Mac user and you have to download Windows 7 converter for Mac from Cnet.com which is quite similar to Zune. Internet explorer on par with safari(Iphone) and google(android). Camera average, me
n my wife thinks iphone 4s the best video/camera. Youtube a
bit blurry compared to my phone(P970 LG nova display).
Bluetooth seems can't paired with my P970(a case of dejavu
with Iphone?)Marketplace similar to Market(android) and
Apps Store(Iphone) but not much apps (especially free ones)
Nokia Lumia 800 is a very beautiful phone which I secretly admire. Hopefully the next Nokia will have a few
tweaks like HD graphics with HDMI output, a better camera,
bluetooth connectivity with android and perhaps a merger of
market apps with the android
Why can't we just have a set of buttons at the bottom of the screen itself and remove the once at the side,as thats the bad selling point about Windows phones?. Buttons you see take up the part of the screen, so no chance to take Full advantage of using the Full lcd screen. It spoils the look and turns me away from buying it
Raw device with a lot of software bugs and very often workmanship defects. OS updates don't install properly, sometimes can harm the system (from my personal experience). on the other hand, the design, the ergonomics, connection quality are fairly good. generally, rather -1
AMOLED capacitive touch screen
Corning Gorilla Glass
Nokia ClearBlack display
JAVA not supported
Only MicroSIM card supported
Active noise cancellation
with dedicated mic
No USB mass storage (file management and sync pass only through Zune)
No video calls and no front-facing camera either
No native DivX/XviD support,
Videos have to be transcoded by Zune
Wow what a phone. I have got both phones lumia 800 and gs2 but unbelievable browsing speed in lumia.Compared to sgs2 lumia is far best and touch feel also is very good. After a long period Nokia has launched a very good phone I love my lumia800
Why would Nokia abandon pentaband with move to WP? Is it that WP does not support it?
I'm very happy with lumia 800
NOKIA is just fooling people with such phones. I am not saying that these phones are bad but they have less features in accordance to their high prices
Galaxy s2 has video calling, 1gb ram 4.2 inches AMOLED screen and price same as LUMIA 800
Its not about nokia or samsung but about the features
N9 got better battery life and camera quality
Lumia could be more durable in body structure but it's only a partial empty trunk box when compare to Razr xt910
Just got this phone a week ago...Trust me guys its a superb phone with super cool apps. Nokia is all set to rule the market with this phone ,the carl zeiss lens gives an awesome photography experience. Geotagging is in real time. Its sleek and sexy....if u r planning to buy a phone in the range of 600$ or so then this is an awesome choice.:)
There is 710, a cheaper alternate to lumia 800
Why the hell I should install over 350000 apps on a phone?
A year old N8 makes iphones camera look like a joke
Use Nimbuzz Better than Gtalk. You connect thro' nimbuzz to gtalk
Iphone 4 doesnt have flash..only androids
I have an n8 for 1 year, no protector at all, 0 scratchs
WHY Omnia is cheaper and better than this phone
1. Samsung has its own semiconductor division, they have in
house production of microprocessors etc. You will be surprised to
know that Iphone 4s processor is manufactured by samsung.
2. In house camera manufacturing division.
3. In house electronics component manufacturing division.
Nokia has to purchase every thing from outside and that cost
is transffered to cutomer.
Used this device for a month now and I have to say that this
device is superb. OS is smooth, the functions are all there
(except for a front camera but who uses it on a regular basis
What I love most is the design of the phone. Fits nicely in your
hands, the screen is awesome.
In terms of the OS, I feel in love with the FB, Twitter
integration in the phone. There's no need to go in/out of any
of your social network apps. Everything is a smooth flow from
the homepage onwards.
Downside - the lack of apps as compared to iOS or Android.
Be smart by getting an iPhone 4S !! or even iPhone 4 , as siri can now
be cracked and installed in iPhone 4 too !! and the apps in App
store are in millions against 1000's in windows marketplace !!
Look at focus's display, I compared both, and this device's display was poor
when compared to that and cam isn't good at all even if its
8MP !! and yeah focus has a wider viewing angle !!.Brightness is better in focus !! these guys are
screwing ur money :| samsung focus is half the price and has
way better display and cam !!
I have one problem which seem to be
imposible to solve...the battery life is not great, it doesn'st last
long..after its fully charged made a few phone calls there and
then dead... very disapointed with it. So i wouldnt
recommended to anyone
LUMIA 800 has a great look for SHOWOFF
Get the n9, is better, bigger and brigther display, camera
quality is better, longer battery life, u can send files via bluetooth
Doesn't support flash
Bluetooth functionless ! what ? USB on-the-go where ? (who needs it on modern smart fones ?)
JAVA, NFC gone !
Can play video directly from sites like youtube without buffring
Nice mobile from nokia but its price is too high and there is no 2nd camera. In lumia710 there is 2nd camera and price is also low
You will never be able to watch TV or play flash video games like FarmVille directly from websites as Nokia lumia does not support it
This phone has an amazing homescreen with live icones. The display is great with its anti reflective amoled gorilla glass thing
Windows 7.5 not bad but luk @ this:no java,no flashplayer support,no mSD slot,no videocall cam,Microsim??? WT...?!..
When we have ie9 with HTML5, no need to download any flash players. I dont know whats the need of java..Only storage memory is 16gb but you will get 25gb storage in windows live on skyDrive. I think 41 gb for a smart phone is enough
Microsoft has made 25gb cloud space available for all window fones ie Samsung, HTC, LG and recently including Lumias, but its purpose is only for synchronising/storing your data from fone memory and nothing more. If you could play movies, videos directly from websites with Lumia without re-downloading, its a mirracle. Lumia lacking ...flash support is the main reason why text files could not transfer and managed by bluetooth.
As an Indian, if we could not watch live cricket games from mobile TV, what is the purpose of buying this Lumia 800 ? even crap cheapest handsets can make voice calls
Design is same as Nokia N9, only different platform. HTC HD7 is better than this and much more cheaper.
I would personally like 2 speak 2 'Stephen Elop'
Lumia missing not only video call camera but also flash video games , movies, TV, NFC and Bluetooth files management facilities. There is no expandable memory slot either. The most frustrating thing is ...its battery not user replaceable
Lumia has no flash support
LCD screen on the Lumia 800 is taken up by buttons at the bottom. Best phone for customizing, is the Galaxy S2,you can change wallpapers and themes but the Lumia 800 has just got the Squares which spoil the look of the phone
How do people plan to use Skype with no front camera?, may be u should give a free mirror as a bonus attachment..And any body mention anything about 4g?
No wifi hotspot
I was a dedicated fan of nokia hand sets but had a very bad experience with n97 and switched to samsung galaxy s2 and trust me it is beautiful..no more nokia anymore for me..nokia is playing with the money of consumers
•No mass storage
•Zune-only file management and sync
•No Bluetooth file transfers
•No Flash (nor Silverlight) support in the browser
•No DivX/XviD video support
(automatic transcoding provided by Zune software)
The phone gets too hot while charging and during internet connection
I don't get what is all the fuss about a missing front camera!
How many of you actually use it for video calls and how often?
Its music player can not be opened without ZING like in IOS
If u want to send or receive via blue tooth, 1st u have to download zune player
Microsoft Windows Mobile??
Do some research, there are many reason why you shouldnt buy this phone.
No Wi-fi Hotspot
No Usb mass storage(file management and sync pass only throught zune)
Cant use as a modem
Great phone, awful sync software! shame
It has a homescreen, and it has unlimitted tiles . You can even put a contact as a tile(HS shortcut)
No sendings for songs in bluetooth directly, download that separate software
A smart fone without a replaceable battery and a memory card slot will definately scare away .....all customers.
I've been using this device for a while now and my advice is to STAY AWAY from it until they sort out the battery issues. The phone does funny things particularly when it 'thinks' the battery is dead. It won't turn on or reset..or recognise a connection via USB or charger. You basically have to spend about 30min worrying whether or not your phone is done for before it finally turns back on. I charged mine last night to full, when I woke up this morning the bloody thing was off and it's taken 30mins of messing around to try get it back on. I like the new phone a lot but this is just not on NOKIA...SORT IT TODAY
To be honest, if you've actually used the Lumia, you'll immediately notice how beautiful and fresh the dynamic live tiles are. Oh yeah, same goes for Zune. It's really fresh and beautiful, plus the Smart DJ mix is just right not to mention it's far better than iTunes and far more user-friendly
You'll never be able to customize its look! Only its color and wallpaper! you'll never have the options like in Android for installing launchers, themes, widgets, and lockers. If I'm not mistaken it is also dependent of ZUNE every time you connect it through your PC!
Current Lumias are only trial versions with very limited utilities. The Real Lumia tango OS is coming by January 2012 and apollo OS by june 2012. The real Nokia Lumia fones with rich specifications and utilities to be
Apple tried to sue Nokia but failed baddly
Downloaded apps from Android Market do not always work properly, unlike iOS.
Android phones are laggy!!
USB otg is missing, bluetooth is functionless without ms Zune, ie .....Lumia 800 cannot use as a modem for laptop/pc in net browsing
One gets mesmerised if he sees and hold the fone in his hands but once they go thru the features of the fone they really get disappointed
Tried out this phone today, it's even smoother than the iphone4, unlike android phones with a lot of lags!
service provider advisor told me that Nokia will fix this battery issue in a short time
Why on earth would one buy a smartphone and then sit in front of the laptop to convert the videos just because stupid phone does not support popular video formats?, time is precious
To send one sms to many, go into sending messages and after selecting one contact you will find + on your right hand and you can add another contact
Lumias looks very cheap with colourful plastic doll like wide-frame rims
No FM transmitter
Hey guys,I'm using my Nokia lumia 800 to write to you about my experience with this phone.Believe me,it is one of the simplest phones I have used so far, the typing is great and can be compared to the iPhone.The only thing about it that was a little off for me was the battery life,which will last at least 6-7 hours when heavy using,but I have read that an update may be coming to improve on its battery life. Another thing is that if you think that there is alot of restrictions using this phone like not getting able to download movies or songs whatever, you will have this Zune software created for windows so it will actually help you convert it to its own format,but you will not be able to download stuff directly from your mobile from the internet,cus it will say that the format can't be recognised.I have been using this phone for almost a week and I don't find
it much of a problem.
The camera to my surprise was quite good if you compare it
to other 8pix cam,the pic looks better.Yes,there are quite alot
of apps in the market so you don't need to worry about it.The
interface is really good and there wasn't much lag.
This phone would be strongly recommended for those of you
who have not even tried a windows phone before. Think before
you speak,it is a great phone.
I actually wanted to buy the n9 but now,I think the lumia is a
better phone considering it will still be supported throughout
the years rather than the n9.
Hey!There's lots of memory in it,so stop worrying and being
afraid it won't be enough cus I think it won't be finishing it up
Those who are heavy users on using the front facing
camera,take note it doesn't have it.
So far,Great!And a proud user of it
Hi, I am using this phone for 15 days now and take it, it is a great set. Nokia put there 100% in it but Mango OS still needs a lot to improve.
All by Nokia, only contribution from Microsoft is People's Hub
All by Microsoft Mango
No synchronization with Outlook contacts and calendar
No sync with your PC's documents, only possible through skydrive
If you have to send SMS to many you have to put contacts from your contact list one at a time. You can not choose contacts selectively
Group facility in contacts limited to 20 contacts only
Moreover you can't sync groups with your Live hotmail contacts.
you can't sync your contact's photo either.
Very Poor Office Suite; no folder system
You can not delete rows or columns in Excel
You have to adjust zoom and column's width setting every time you open same Excel file
There is no Tab or Ctrl key in keyboard, without these working in Excel is a headache
Such a sexy phone, I checked it
with a gs2 of another friend and didnt felt lumia is slower than gs2
even while using internet.Also windows UI is cool and android
looked so boring and cramped. Battery backup of both is
similar I think. Also screen of lumia is smaller but rest, it rocks
Has a negative battery life and when its in the middle of charging ,the phone
does not even switch on.ANNOYING HANDSET
A memo to the CEO,
Don't put off the fire with petrol !
(i had symbian, iphone & android lg opt black)
Apps: below average
Camera: poor (not to nokias expectation)
Nokias effort on this phone is nill
MS has done a good job on the tiles and the entire os Like FB, twitter etc
Making a phone call is a problem especially if you come from symbian or android
Searching for contacts is a real pain
No smart dialing (tried many apps but no good)
Contactnames are clear but numbers are too small (why?????)
Nokia music is missing even nokia pop radio is not there in my phone
IE 9 is super fast but no flash makes it dull
WM7.5 is like IOS cant download music
Videos and zune is not my stuff
Copy past is excellent
Contacts should have merge option (symbian users can understand) due to many contacts from FB, gmail twitter etc
I am not able to send or receive MMS neither the company nor the service providers have any idea of how to do the settings
Windows 7.5 is a great os and definitely has a great future, it should try to reduce taps to get the work done for example starting wifi , warning prompts etc
SVG support in browser
Prone to finger-prints
No Face Detection.
skydrive have a filelimit. u need a huge bandwith cap to access. Only 5gb are syncable, get the nokia n9 (is better and have 64gb black version)
£449.99 in the UK sim free
It doesnlt support 1080p video recording and video playback..
But one thing you gotta know there is 25Gigs of cloud storage after 16gb inbuilt
News is that most of the mobile developers are heading towards windows phone operating system, hope all the drawbacks will be fullfilled rapidly and will be a great os
Ya ! it is fully loaded with ass, semi-paralysed features
Nokia is trying to fool people with this over priced mid
Highly recommended for donkeys.
No WIFI Hotspot, still bloody old Bluetooth 2.1Vs while 4 has come up
I think ELOP is doing nicely, burning fort Nokia to the ground so that M$ could pick it up for a song. Use its patents to attack iOS and Android
Manufacturers are not putting everything in a single unit.
Why? It's business
We JAPANESE people rarely use fone primary camera for video call, most of the time we use FCC for video conferences.
Windows uses tiles instead of icons and claims they made something out of the box, what is the difference between
icons & tiles? they have exactly the same use. Its just like a
two lane set of icons. Icons are even look more attractive &
friendly to use than tiles. Yes the wp7 transition is amazing but
the UI as a whole is complicated
Cannot record video beyond 720 X 30 fps
