    All depends and what you do on your phone.

    Although I have a 800, you might be better saving your money and getting a WP8 device rather than just getting a Lumia 800, the only difference to what you have now, is more storage, better camera and a different type of screen.

    I agree, save your money and put it towards a WP8 device. It's not worth spending the money for a minor upgrade with an obsolete OS.
