Nokia Lumia 800 Hands-On Review

Last week, I was able to spend some time playing with my friend, Bryan‘s new Nokia Lumia 800. I have never used a Windows Phone before, you see, and Nokia Lumia 800 is one of Nokia’s latest phones running Windows Phone 7.5 operating system. I will share my user-experience, instead of going into technical details – I just don’t have a head for that!

First off, the design of the phone looks quite unique and different from many other smart phones in the market. I like the sleek body of the phone. It gives a nice grip because of the Polycarbonate material used and it lies comfortably in my palm too. However, I think some people might not like the rubbery feel. The display looks very clear as if the graphics on the screen are floating on the curved glass.

The phone’s operating system is very responsive and intuitive. I didn’t have to spend much time understanding the way how things work on the phone. Scrolling is very smooth – the animated transition while swiping sideways make the phone looks very lively. Operating system-wise, I think it’s very simple and easy to use. I would say it’s as simple to operate as the iPhone’s iOS.

The multitasking ability is rather limited because the system will only keep the latest 5 applications open concurrently. Opening more than 5 apps at the same time, the earliest opened application will be closed automatically. Bummer!

  1. Cool… I might actually consider this phone… really tired of IOS & Andriods … this might be something outstanding & hopefully not too buggy 🙂
