Powered by a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, the Nokia Lumia 800 would have 512 MB internal RAM. 16 GB memory would be ideal for storing songs and videos.

For connectivity Nokia Lumia 800 has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a micro-USB port. An 8 mega pixel camera is much suited for indoor and outdoor photos and video shoot.

The non-removable battery has a 1450mAh capacity which is good for 265 hours of standby in 2G (335 hours in 3G). Talk times are respectively 13 hours and 9 hours and 30 minutes.

Thus, Nokia Lumia 800 claims to have a battery backup of atleast 9.5 hours of talk time and around 55 hours of non stop music.

Nokia Lumia 800 Advantages And Disadvantages

Nokia Lumia 800 drawbacks:

  • Display is much dimmer than the N9′s display
  • No Flash or Silverlight support in browser
  • No USB mass storage (file management and sync pass only through Zune)
  • No video calls and no front-facing camera either
  • Non-user-replaceable battery
  • No memory card slot (and no 64GB version like the N9)
  • microSIM card slot

It is not the slimmest Windows Phone, but it makes a claim to be the most beautiful. It measures 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm. Exactly the same as the N9. And weighs 142g,  7g heavier than its MeeGo counterpart.

Nokia Lumia 800 would be a strong rival to Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy series smart phones.

There’s not much we can say about the OS. All Windows Phone handsets are evenly matched. But Nokia Lumia 800 stands high with its three proprietary apps, Nokia manages to put the Lumia 800 in a class of its own.

The camera on Nokia Lumia 800 has plenty of potential too – as it is, it’s one of the best shooters in the Windows Phone world and has the potential to get even better with a software update that clears up some of its issues (like the overly eager continuous auto focus).

The curvy polycarbonate shell and Gorilla Glass with smooth, beveled edges give a huge boost to the Nokia Lumia 800 ‘s desirability too. The display is pretty great too, though the somewhat low brightness levels were kind of a disappointment. Still, it’s better than most WP phones out there.

But never forger that Nokia N9 also shares in the great features of the Nokia Lumia 800 and does better than it in some respects. But with a niche OS and intentionally high price tag, mainstream acceptance will probably always remain out of its reach.

If you’re looking at the Nokia Lumia 800, then you’ve probably decided against an iPhone or an Android smartphone. You want in on Windows Phone and that’s that – and the 800 is a good point. The OS has matured, the Marketplace has grown.
