Nokia Lumia 800

The Good The Nokia Lumia 800 has a singular design, a stunning display, and a nice driving console in Nokia Drive.

The Bad Camera and video quality on the Lumia 800 is poor, despite the fancy specs. A front-facing camera would make the phone more competitive. The Micro-SIM slot is hard to access.

The Bottom Line The unlocked Nokia Lumia 800 has an innovative design and gorgeous screen, but the poor camera quality and lack of a front-facing camera are major detractions.

Nokia Lumia 800

The importance of the high-end Nokia Lumia 800--the more elite of Nokia's first-ever two Windows phones--can't be overstated (the other is the Nokia Lumia 710).

With Nokia's fate intertwined with Windows Phone, and consumers and operators still lukewarm on the OS, it's hardly a stretch to suggest that the weight of a company is riding on the Nokia Lumia 800's polycarbonate shoulders.
