Telecom industry has grown tremendously in last few years and will continue to pace up. During the last decade, this industry has witnessed many new service operators and mobile manufacturers coming up in competition with the establishment ones. Moreover, the launch of many services has accentuated the advancement in features and other offering in mobile phones. Nokia Lumia 800 is Nokia’s latest phone and it has received wide popularity soon in India after the release. It is one of the brilliant Smartphone ideal for businessmen and for teenagers also if they want to make entertainment their top priority.
The Nokia Lumia 800 - the first Nokia and real Windows Phone, available in three varies colors: black, cyan and magenta. This phone provided us many amazing features like it is powered by a 1.4GHz processor, with 16GB of internal storage and a microSIM slot. Similar to other new smart phones, the Nokia Lumia 800 offers an AMOLED touch screen and 16 million colors. Also, the screen is made from the Gorilla glass which is the strongest material for every cell phone screens. Another interesting thing about this phone is that it comes with a powerful 8 Megapixel camera. The seamless design makes everything clear and simple. Another apps like Internet Explorer 9, HTML5 and Wi-Fi where there is the web without the wait. This is a fantastic phone and is highly recommended to Windows lovers.
The phone’s design recalls the earlier N9, but its 16-bit AMOLED screen is smaller at 3.7” and 800x480 pixels. The display is sharp and renders details and colors well. Its unibody design, measuring 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm and weighing 142g, is slim and light to handle, and with its sleek curved shape it fits comfortably in the hand, although users of super-thin devices may consider it bulky.
Inside the Lumia 800 is a more powerful CPU than the N9 – a 1.4GHz Snapdragon/Scorpion processor that runs the Windows Phone Mango OS smoothly and quickly. The user-interface is a bold innovation against the iPhone lookalikes, abandoning app grids in favor of “Live Tiles” in a 2 by 4 arrangement that can be scrolled through vertically. Tiles can be readily added to or removed from the start screen, or moved around. Once adapted to the layout, users will find it fast and smart. The rest of the phone’s functions are found in the apps list – no folders to be found – and searchable by letter. Users may find the lack of Exit button irritating as it forces them to repeatedly press the Back button. Overall, the interface is interesting and intuitive.
When set up for the first time, the Lumia 800 creates a “People” cloud of contacts, drawing together people from all your social networks and platforms to form a single list which you can customize, merge and edit as needed. The social network integration of the phone is one of its most pleasing features. On the downside, contacts can’t be hidden. Making phone calls is long-winded on this phone: selecting the “Phone” tile shows your call log, and calls are made using the functions at the screen base. HTC users will note the absence of smart dialing, and searching for contacts can be tedious. However, audio quality is good and the phone maintains strong signal.
The standard email, SMS and MMS functions are all present, but feature some quirks. During first setup users are prompted to add accounts (support includes Windows Live, Outlook, Nokia Mail, Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and more), but the Windows Live account is mandatory. The phone’s messaging app integrates text messaging, Windows Messenger and Facebook’s chat function into one place, which makes for easy communication across multiple platforms. Entering text is painless thanks to well-sized keys and a clever auto-complete suggestion function, and users can obtain high texting speeds. However, selecting text to interact with it is slow and sometimes frustrating.
With 16GB of internal storage, the Lumia 800 provides plenty of space for storing video and photos. The Pictures app displays images both from the Camera and synched from SkyDrive and Facebook. Video playback displays all of the phone’s stored content, which can be sorted by media type. The high-definition screen gives good picture quality in landscape.
Nokia phones generally provide satisfying audio quality, and the Lumia 800 is no exception when used with headphones. However, the in-built speaker lacks any depth. Audio control functions are available at any time via an overlaid menu. The app syncs with the Nokia Music service, a streaming service with frequently updated playlists, radio stations and tracks. The Radio app opens a FM radio requiring headphones to listen – the functionality is basic but includes favorites. Overall, the interface is smooth and easy to use.
Some users may miss the front camera lacking from the Lumia, but video chat is not a priority for this device. Instead, the rear camera is the primary capture device: an 8-megapixel f/2.2 lens with double LED flash. Its focus and capture actions are reminiscent of the iPhone, and the Camera app itself includes settings for focus, saturation, contrast, exposure, ISO, white balance and resolution. Within the app, a simple swipe moves between the live camera and saved photos. In the image viewer, photos can be edited and posted to social networks. The image quality is good, with strong colors and high contrast.
Video capture on the Nokia Lumia 800 is passable but certainly not exceptional—users can’t even adjust the zoom whilst filming. The quality is reasonable, with vivid color and good audio capture, but the camera responds badly to light changes, particularly low lighting, and has a dismal focal range.
Charging is carried out via an USB/micro-USB cable, but the phone supports Bluetooth 2.1 and the standard Wi-Fi 802.11b. When connected to a PC, the Lumia 800 installs Microsoft Zune, used to synch music and video. The absence of a drag-and-drop function impairs this interface, particularly as the phone doesn’t support wireless synchronization.
The Nokia Lumia 800 comes equipped with the Windows 365 suite of apps, which provide mobile access to contacts, email, calendar and shared documents to help owners work on the move. With SharePoint, users can share documents with colleagues and store them in secure spaces. SkyDrive enables saving, working and sharing of documents with other users in real-time. Standard tools such as Alarm, Calendar, Calculator and Games offer simple but effective functionality.
Internet browsing is where the phone truly shines. Pages load in less than 3 seconds when Wi-Fi connectivity is good. However, for heavy-duty webpages it suffers in comparison to Safari. The browser itself is pleasant to use and full of features. For searches it offers a quick-launch of Bing, the preferred search engine, and Local Scout, which displays nearby places of note such as restaurants, bars and shops. One noticeable issue is the lack of support for Flash – the phone fails to render net content like video. In addition to the phone’s in-built Facebook app, users can add Twitter, Foursquare, Evernote, GetGlue, Foursquare and others via a quick and easy download. An impressive array of apps can be downloaded from Marketplace
Instead of Google, the phone uses the Nokia Maps app, downloadable from Marketplace. Nokia Drive is designed for map reading on the go and offers views in 2D and 3D, providing additional perspectives, definition and landmarks; users can also customize voice settings and light levels. The speed and accuracy of the app are remarkable
At nearly half the price of juggernauts such as the Galaxy SIII, the Nokia Lumia 800 represents good value for money, although its inferior hardware means that the phone will date more quickly than upscale rivals. The Nokia Lumia 800 is a lightweight, well-designed device with a smart UI and speedy browser to recommend it. For strong media support look elsewhere, but this is an intuitive phone that presents a strong challenge to the iPhone and its ilk.
