Nokia Lumia 800 Smartphone Price in the Philippines, Features, and Tech Specs: The Nokia Lumia 800 is an intriguing phone in its own terms. It has been conceptualized, designed, built and distributed by the Finnish multinational company in less than a year. This led some to speculate that the phone may serve as a forewarning of Nokia’s new trajectory as a mobile phone company after its troubles in the past. It is after all the first Windows phone handset brought about by the tie-up between Nokia and Microsoft that was announced last February.
The Nokia Lumia 800 has a refreshing and a distinctive glassy exterior. The design is very much reminiscent of its cousin, the Nokia N9, from which the phone was said to be a modification. It has a smooth curved back handle that fits smoothly on the palm. However, the sharp edges may be a little uncomfortable when the phone is slid and carried around in a pocket.
The Nokia Lumia 800 has a unibody design, which makes the battery inaccessible. It features a perfectly fit convex and durable Gorilla glass screen that is 3.7 inches measured in diagonal. The volume rocker, power / lock button and camera buttons are all placed at the right side of the phone while the left is left blank. On top are the microUSB port, a microSIM slot and the 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The Nokia Lumia 800 supports MP3 and WAV sound formats and has a loudspeaker. On the bottom of the phone are the speaker and microphone hole. In addition, as dictated by its Windows phone specs, it also features touch-sensitive back, menu and search capacitive controls at the bottom of the screen.
The Nokia Lumia 800 is 116.5 x 61.2 x 12.1 mm in size and weighs only 142 g. The display type is an AMOLED capacitive / multi-touch enabled screen capable of 480 x 800 pixel resolution with approximately 252ppi. The display specs were significantly downgraded from that of N9 to fit the Windows phone specs list. Hence, the Nokia Lumia 800 may not exactly be as high-resolution and won’t give a crispier image compared to higher-end phones. However, Nokia’s ClearBlack display is nonetheless stunning when coupled to the phone’s industrial polycarbonate shell design. Added to this is the AMOLED nature of the display that gives more vibrancy and contrast ratios to the colors compared to, say, TFT screens.
The Nokia Lumia 800’s camera is 3264 x 2448 pixels or 8 megapixels with autofocus, dual-LED flash and it features Carl Zeiss optics. The camera is Geo-tagging enabled, and captures videos at 720p at 30 frames per second. There is no secondary camera at the front that means no video calls support.
The alteration from N9 in terms of hardware specs leaves some to be desired. The RAM was reduced from 1 GB in N9 to 512 MB and its phone storage capacity is only 16 GB instead of 64 GB in N9. In addition, it doesn’t have a card slot for an extended storage memory either.
The Nokia Lumia 800 runs on Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system, has Qualcomm MSM8255 Snapdragon chipset not found in N9, a 1.4 GHz Scorpion CPU, and Andreno 205 GPU. However, the Lumia 800 has all the standard capabilities in terms of data handling: GPRS Class 33, EDGE Class 33, and 3G at HSDPA 14.4 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps. It is Wi-Fi enabled at 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth v2.1 enabled with A2DP and EDR. It has GPS support but no Java support as well as no innate Divx/Xvid support.
The Nokia Lumia 800 uses a standard Li-ion battery with 1450 mAh. The phone can last up to 335 hours on stand-by time and go on to 13 hours with continuous talk time.
The phone comes in black, cyan and magenta colors. In my own opinion, the phone is more or less reasonably priced.
