    Over the weekend someone broke into my truck and stole my phone. Since I wasn't willing to fork over 550.00 to replace my WP 8 phone, I picked up a VERY gently used 800 for a song so here are a few observations:
    • When I got the 800, it was running version 7.5 and after a series of updates (six of them) I finally unlocked all that goodness that is 7.8.
    • 7.8 isn't that much beneath 8. Most of the feature are available to both but I do miss weather on my lockscreen, but I think that's more of a limitation of a single core processor rather than the o/s.
    • They must have fixed 7.8 because all my tiles update properly and my phone is buttery smooth.
    • I had forgotten how beautiful this phone is. It is so much more attractive than my Samsung - but then again I hate rounded corners.
    • I can't lie - I miss all the real estate that a 4.8 inch screen had verses a 3.7. That's a really tough thing to give up.
    • The Lumia feels really good in the hand - the Ativ always felt a little too slippery to me.
    • The Lumia hasn't done a spontaneous reboot yet. My Sammy did one at least once every three days.


    In short, I think that this phone has to rank as one of Nokia's best. A great phone even today. Wear it proudly 800 brothers and sisters!

    It would've been the perfect wp8 phone. Killer size and the design is great!

    If they added FFC and NFC and gave it wp8, it'd be the best.
