Nokia Lumia 800 reviews

Lumia 800 is all about looks, excellent design with solid build quality. WP 7.5 is another selling point. This phone is good for entertainment, work or fun. The battery life is also good. This phone comes with 16 GB built in storage and is limited to that space with no micro SD slot. The 8 MP camera quality is good but with no secondary camera options.

Over all the Nokia Lumia 800 has got good features all packed into a brilliant design with latest Windows Phone OS, the price though seems to be a bit too much.
