Nokia Lumia 900 review: Europass

 

It took the Nokia Lumia 900 just a few days to top the US sales charts and see delighted handshakes quickly turn into group hugs, as Nokia, Microsoft and AT&T, which carries it exclusively stateside, were busy celebrating the flagship's performance in...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 42 Mbps HSDPA and 5.7 Mbps HSUPA support ; 4.3" 16M-color AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 480 x 800 pixel resolution ; Scratch resistant Gorilla glass display with anti-glare polarizer ; 8 megapixel...

Won't get WP 8 ; No USB mass storage (Zune only file management and sync) ; No native video calls ; Non-user-replaceable battery ; No memory card slot (and no 64GB version like the N9) ; microSIM card slot ; No native DivX/XviD support, videos have to...

Launching a flagship months before a major overhaul of the platform isn't exactly a planning masterstroke. The Nokia Lumia 900 will not get Windows Phone 8 and the news breaking just about when the phone hit the stores is more than just an unfortunate...

Nokia Lumia 900 vs HTC Titan II: Head to head

Nokia Lumia 900 is arguably the best Windows Phone handset out there. It is great looking and well put together. It even manages to add a couple of exclusive software touches to an otherwise generic experience with Microsoft's mobile OS. Internals are...

Nokia Lumia 900 review

 

Nokia Lumia 900 official Nokia Lumia 900 to hit AT&T on April 8th with $100 price tag in tow (video) Nokia Lumia 800 review Long-awaited,

Solid camera ; Fluid user experience ; Blazing LTE speeds ; Useful Internet Sharing feature ; Screen is easily readable outdoors

Low-res display

Nokia's Lumia 900 is a steal for consumers looking for dependable performance, ease of use, LTE connectivity, an attractive design and reasonable price.

Nokia Lumia 900 hands-on: First encounter

 

Nokia's Windows Phone flagship was unveiled at CES and we got some quality time with it. The Nokia Lumia 900 builds on the Lumia 800's innovative design and offers improved specs (like the 4.3" ClearBlack AMOLED display) along with some new features...

Anyway, the first thing you'll notice about the new phone is the bigger screen. It has grown in size to 4.3", quite a jump from the 3.7" screen of the Lumia 800. The Lumia 900's body is bigger too, but the bezels have shrunk to partially make up for...

Nokia Lumia 900 AT&T review

 

Nokia sorely needs a "hero" smartphone with the looks, the speeds, the specs, and a price that will hush the doubters. With the Lumia 900, Nokia proves that it has the chops to compete. We thought so at CES , where we awarded it best new smartphone,...

The Nokia Lumia 900's eye-popping unibody design sets a new direction for smartphone style. Its LTE speeds, vivid 4.3-inch screen, and 8-megapixel camera are high points.

Problems with call quality and minor design flaws like some gaps in the construction and weirdly placed buttons get in the way. The designer camera optics are good, but they don't live up to the hype. The phone shoots 720p video rather than 1080p video.

The Nokia Lumia 900's unique design and high-end features make Windows Phone look fantastic, and the $99 price is extremely fair. Despite some flaws, this is my favorite Windows Phone yet.

Review: Nokia Lumia 900

 

The Lumia 900 is without a doubt a good phone, and probably the best Windows Phone handset out there right now. What is in doubt...

Highly optimized Windows Phone experience makes the most of the phone’s relatively modest specs. Fun hardware design and bright colors turn heads. Great battery life: On automatic screen brightness, I got two full days with average use. Under more...

Low resolution is a shame for such an otherwise great display. Tiny gap between the display and the polycarbonate body of the handset easily collects crap like food particles and skin cells. The circular shape of the charger plug is a power-strip hog....

Incredible hardware design ; OS is snappy and responsive ; LTE data is speedy ; Great entry price

Nokia Lumia 900 Review: Best Windows Phone So Far

 

When I first saw the Nokia Lumia 900 ($100 with a two-year AT&T contract, price as of April 3, 2012) at CES 2012, I proclaimed that it was the Windows Phone I'd been waiting for: Offering a premium design, a high-end camera, a gorgeous display, and LTE...

Gorgeous AMOLED display ; Great, versatile camera ; Fast data speeds over LTE

Windows Phone still missing some apps and features ; No 1080p video capture

With a stunning display, fast data speeds, and a versatile camera, the Lumia 900 has what it takes to compete with the iPhone and with Android handsets--if Microsoft and AT&T can win over customers.

Nokia Lumia 900 (AT&T)

 

The Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T is a powerful, easy-to-use Windows Phone. It's great, as long as you don't need Words With Friends or some other apps you might find on an iPhone or an Android phone.

Attractive design. Strong reception. Very fast LTE speeds. Fun, easy to use OS.

Lacks some popular apps from other platforms. Camera isn't the greatest.

You won't be bored. You can play Doodle Jump, Super Monkey Ball, Sonic the Hedgehog 4, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and thousands of other games. High-end titles include Assassin's Creed and Sims 3. But if your friends are all...
