If there was a mobile phone which I got hooked onto the looks it would be the Nokia Lumia 800c. When it came out in March 2012 the design stuck in my mind and every other phone they brought out I would compare it to this. Don’t get me wrong as the Nokia 520 is also a great phone but it was the blue 800c which they advertised that took it in looks for me.
The specs of the Lumia 800c was good in 2012 and today 2 years later it is still very good. The phone no doubt will hold its value in the market for many years to come. It was a great design and even greater features. The Lumia 800c comes with dual band only so if you are looking for something more fancy then you should look at the Nokia Lumia 1520 which is feature packed with the same look but at a price!
The screen of this mobile phone is nice and large. Its just under 12cm long and 6cm wide and comes with an AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors. It is also a multi-touch screen with a Nokia Clear Black display which makes for a great contrast when looking at the phone. The phone also comes with a standard loudspeaker and a 3.5mm jack and with the ability to use vibration; MP3 and WAV file ringtones. There is no memory card slot and with 512MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage the phone is ready for multimedia use. It comes with GPRS and EDGE with EV-DO Rev. A, up to 3.1 Mbps. There is also WiFi built into the phone being the 802.11 b/g/n. There is also Bluetooth and microUSB ability to the phone.
The camera in the phone is very good and now you know why it has such a large internal memory. The phone comes with an 8 MegaPixel camera and the ability to take pictures for wallpaper being 3264×2448 pixels. The camera is a Carl Zeiss and it also comes with a dual flash to avoid shadows in your pictures. The camera much like other high-end cameras comes with autofocus and the phone also has geotagging. The phone only has 1 camera being its primary camera and it takes video at a really great 720p@30fps which gives you very good video.
Microsoft Mango runs the phone and it is powered by 1.4Ghz Scorpion processor and a Qualcomm MSM8655T Snapdragon chipset and an Adreno 205 GPU. The phone also has a proximity sensor as well as a compass and an accelerometer. Internet surfing can be HTML5 or WAP and the phone has both options and there is also A-GPD support.
For a phone powered as this one is the battery holds very well. There is an 8 day standby time as well as a 9 hour talk time. Overall this is a great phone to own and its price hovers around the US$200 mark which makes it a great buy.
