Summary: Lumia 800 is one of smartphones these days that really sets the standard of how smartphone should looks like since iPhone.
The combination of amazing design from Nokia and great OS from Microsoft really makes Lumia 800 in the unique position in the smarphone wars today. You have to get a hands-on to really understand the harmony of the hardware and software.
The integration of social networking in people and pictures hub really provides unified experience for the user. Everything just works together flawlessly.
Apart from the social networking integration, Lumia also packed with a 8mp camera with Carl Zeiss optic. The quality of the photo taken is superb even in low light condition. Together with Creative Studio which is another great app from Nokia, photography experience is really being push to another level.
Another area which makes Nokia Lumia a amazing smartphone is Mapping & Navigation. Comes with 2 exclusive free apps, Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive, Nokia again shows their seriousness to compete in the smartphone wars. Nokia Drive provides full turn by turn voice navigation and also now with offline support. I believe Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive are really what makes Lumia the best windows phone handset in the market.
Even with all the greatness, Lumia 800 and also windows phone OS still have their weakness. Lack of front facing camera, no centralized notification centre, inconsistent push notification behaviour, limited number of running apps in the background, etc. hopefully all of these will be included in the future updates.
But still Lumia 800 is really really a great phone!!! For those who are looking for new smartphone, go and try the Lumia 800, once you try it then only you can understand,, :)
