Nokia Lumia 800 Owners Review

Having finally taken the plunge yesterday and bought the Nokia Lumia 800 to replace my trusty iPhone 3GS I thought I would write a real-life review from a user perspective that may assist others in their choice.

The biggest difference in appearance has been the screen - the clarity and sharpness is a street ahead of my old iPhone 3GS.

So far the biggest positives have been:
  • Excellent screen, both resolution and clarity/colours
  • Spellchecker and autocorrect far more useful than iOS/iPhone
  • People hub to connect social activity is fantastic and the level of integration is great
  • Group texting! Something that was never possible on iPhone. On Lumia, create a group and choose whether you want to email or text the members - simple!
And the negatives
  • Limited apps eg no Dropbox
  • Fonts take some getting used to
  • Screen actions differ to iOS/iPhone eg hold to delete
  • No dedicated silent button as per iPhone
Overall with less than 24 hours usage I am very impressed with the phone and cannot wait to see the improvements with the Windows Phone 7.8 update and test the new Lumia 920 with WP8 when it is released.
