Summary: The Lumia 800 is a pleasure to use, it's a style icon. It feels great in the hand. The curved glass and one piece construction scream quality. When in use the screen is so bright and colours so vivid it's amazing. The new windows phone OS is the future, so intuitive and user friendly. The ability to multitask opens a lot of possibilities, you can search be chatting on facebook, copy and paste the link into your chat seamlessly.
With the Lumia you have to use Zune software to transfer your media, while that may make you pause for thought, don't. Unlike Itunes which is clunky, slow, and just a pain to use, Zune is a pleasure. Zune doesn't try to force you to buy your music legally, it treats all your music library as though you bought it from them, it will find album art on it's own and can sort your tracks by album almost perfectly.
The fact that Windows phone users are currently in the minority means you'll miss out on a lot of apps. In future this may change as windows OS becomes more dominant, however for the moment it means no BBCiplayer app, or Onlive. Microsoft does make up for this somewhat with offerings such as Skydrive, giving you 25 gigs of cloud storage for free. All the BIG apps are there like BBC/Sky/Guardian News, but for the moment you may miss a few good ones.
All in all I would give the Lumia 9 out of 10
Once uptake improves and if flash support is added it could earn a 10.
Thanks for your submission!
