Nokia Lumia 800 user interface:
Despite rumours surrounding Nokia’s ability to modify the standard interface of Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 800 uses the untouched standard version of the operating system. A push-to-unlock button brings up the lock screen revealing the time, date and notifications such as missed calls. It is a clean and user friendly interface that shows all important and unread notifications without hassles.
In terms of software, the Nokia Lumia 800 is matched by all other Windows Phone Mango devices. But the Nokia Lumia 800 has what many phones lack – an 8 Megapixel camera with LED flash. This gives it a huge advantage over other Nokia Windows powered phones as the camera has become the benchmark hardware component to consider when buying a new phone. The Nokia Lumia 800 is a phone and a digital camera in one, which makes it a definite keeper.
