Hey i like the phone. My only concern is that i'm a headphone freak and switching over from Apple, all my headphones (AIAIAI TMA-1) with volume control and mic dont work, and nokia suggests that i buy a pair of their horrible 'pure' headphones.

Do you think this will be fixed in the future? I clearly see no reason why the software can't handle apple-style remotes, especially when the long-middle-button-press does bring the speech recognition window up.

That's the only concern, if they get that fixed (which they really have to) then the lumia becomes a serious contender.

I had the same problem with the screen not proper attached on my lumia 800, making clicking sound when pressing the middle of the screen. Got a new lumia same day, no problems with that one Just love the phone. My previous phone where a Htc Hd2 running wp7 mangoo.. But what an improvment with a "real" wp7 device. My smile is still there 3 weeks using the phone

I am coming from BlackBerry, iPhone and Android.
Nokia Lumia with WP is fantastic!
Probably there are some issues but compared with others... oh LUMIA is my choice.
I am just unhappy about people who buying what is "number 1" - here in Bulgaria everybody want iPhone or SGS2
I remember the times when I start to use BB, people in Bulgaria wanted only Symbian and wandered what stupid phone is mine
Now is like as it was before
WP needs some support to prove its advantages.

Just got my new phone loving it. Tho there's one problem: when its on low brightness and you look at the screen at certain angles the colours get discoloured, has anybody noticed this?

Probably the PenTile display.

Sleek, great device with a unique design. Extra ordinary OS, everything is there where you expect it and need it. Simply adorable.

It's actually about 14.9GB and there's about 13GB or so that you can use.

In addition to that, you can adjust how much of the space is reserved for apps and that with Zune.

I bought a Lumia 800 yesterday and I love it. My only gripe is the blockyness of the PenTile display. But I'll learn to live with that.
