Not everyone wants to be tied to a particular mobile operator, so a Sim-Free Smartphone is a good option – but bear in mind this phone accepts the new smaller Micro-Sim, if you have an older full sized Sim it needs to be trimmed to fit, but don´t worry there are many guides/ converter packages on the internet telling you how to do this.

But I want an iPhone I hear you say. Well, good luck finding a sim free model at this price!

So what makes the Nokia Lumia 800 stand out? It has an excellent 3.7 inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 480×800 pixels. AMOLED screens are self-illuminating so darker colours draw less power than LCD screens and they´re also capable of producing very black levels for impressive contrast. Combine this with a fast and responsive touch screen covered with gorilla glass for toughness and things are looking good.

But what makes the Lumia 800 stand out is the new operating system Microsoft Windows Phone. Microsoft´s previous attempt at a phone operating system, Windows Mobile, was badly received. But Windows Phone looks fantastic, has a dynamic design, slick 3D effects and feels more modern than even competitors Android(Samsung, HTC etc.) and iOS (Apple). It´s quick and also now adds multi-tasking which was not previously available.

The Nokia Lumia 800 has also been designed with social interaction in mind. The People Hub gives you access to everyone you know in just a click. All the latest updates from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn can be opened straight from the Start screen. You can also have easy access by pinning your closest friends, family and groups to your start screen.

Facebook Chat and SMS are integrated into one to let you have the most convenient conversation. And you can take photos and post them to Facebook in seconds with the Carl Zeiss Tessar lens 8-megapixel camera. It has a flash and will take 720p videos too. Unfortunately though this isn´t front-facing so can´t be used for video calls.

Other features include Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps for mobile navigation and if you’re working Microsoft Office Mobile will give you the tools you need. Internet browsing is dealt with by Internet Explorer 9 and Nokia Music and Mix Radio give you access to a wide selection of songs. Nokia Apps Marketplace and Xbox Live give you access to apps, videos and games. The Nokia Lumia 800 has 16GB of memory for storing music, videos, photos and apps – but no micro-SD card so this can´t be expanded.

Super-fast browsing is just a tile away with Internet Explorer 9 – either via your mobile operator or by connecting to an available WiFi signal. And if you’re after the best in entertainment, it’s accessible in a simple click. Nokia Music and Mix Radio give you access to a huge selection of songs. Marketplace and Xbox Live give you endless apps, videos and games to choose from.
Call quality is very good and reception in weaker signal areas excellent. Battery usage is on a par with Smartphones of this type in that it´ll need a re-charge after a full days use.
