Nokia Lumia 800

[vc_column_text width=”3/4″ el_position=”first”]

The Nokia Lumia 800 combines a great sleek looking design, fantastic build quality and incorporates the impressive Windows 7.5 Operating System.

With a fantastic 3.7 inch touchscreen, 16GB storage, 512MB RAM and 8MP camera this smartphone is a good all-rounder and is great for office integration, gaming with Xbox live and for use across all the social media networks.

Once you start using the Lumia, you will realise that a lot of thought has been put into not only the design of the phone but the software too. They compliment each other perfectly. The screen is fantastic and very slick and smooth to the touch. The viewing angle is great, black is deep black even in bright sunlight, colours are bright and colourful and the touch interface is very responsive.

Nokia Drive, Nokia’s built in SatNav programme works really well and actually looks exactly like a normal SatNav if you turn the phone onto its side (the screen goes from portrait to landscape mode automatically). This is one of the best features of the phone as if you have a car charger; you will actually never need to buy a SatNav.

The phone also has a location based app called Local Scout. The phone detects your location and offers suggestions on where to go for food and drink, what to see and do etc. As well as full contact details so you can automatically call the restaurant/bar/museum as well as navigate you there.

The on screen QWERTY keyboard means text entry is clean and easy with its keys large enough for the average fingers to work around without many incorrect presses and an auto complete suggestions bar between the keyboard and the entry field.

The easy set up enables you to add Windows Live (Hotmail, Xbox LIVE, Messenger, Calendar and others), Outlook (Exchange and Office 360), Nokia Mail (provided by Yahoo!), Yahoo! Mail, Google (Mail and Calendar), Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other email accounts (POP and IMAP) as well as providing advanced setup to manually use your accounts.

Call quality on the Nokia Lumia 800 is excellent, partially due to its polycarbonate chassis meaning that there are no large pieces of metal for radio signals to bounce off. Internet browsing is also extremely clear with lightening response loading pages. The touch screen enables smooth and easy navigation, with Bing integration making searching fast.

The battery life is comparable to most smartphones on the market, Stand-by Up to 265 h (2G) / Up to 335 h (3G) and Talk time Up to 13 h (2G) / Up to 9 h 30 min (3G). To aid battery management there is an option in the phone settings to turn on battery saver automatically when the battery level drops below a pre-set figure, switching certain services off like automatic email retrieval and background applications.
