Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone Review - The Smarter Smartphone?
Having now had my Lumia 800 for over a month as a trial to decide if I should upgrade to the Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 I am very impressed with the phone and features compared to my previous iPhone 3GS.
Possibly the most useful feature I have found so far is that you can write text messages when you have no signal and they will automatically send as soon as your signal reappears. One of my major annoyances with the iPhone is that if no signal you have to manually resend a message until it goes - a real pain if you are on a train going through many tunnels!
The key features on the Nokia Lumia 800 for me are as below:
Camera - direct button to access
Music - free downloads
Text sending when no signal
Group text - built into message app via people hub (Never available on iPhone!)
Group contacts into logical groups (family, friends etc)
Reject call when locked
Zune vs iTunes, ease of use
Value for money
Pinning apps to home screen
No need to constantly enter password to install free apps
Speed of web
The downsides of the Lumia 800 are:
Lack of apps and support
Text different mobile for a contact (you can only text one number for a person)
The apps will hopefully improve in time but I would like to see the ability to text multiple numbers for a contact to be resolved in WP8 when it is released.
