I have had the pleasure of spending the last few weeks with the sexy Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone courtesy of Nokia Connects.
I was blown away by this phone, all I can say is that if you are looking for a smartphone and if these are seriously on half-price, its a no-brainer. You should jump at the Nokia Lumia 900 if you get the chance. I don’t care that it’s not getting Microsoft 8 – how long will it be before you upgrade to Microsoft 8 on your PC? Do you really need it or just want it? Why it isn’t upgradable however, I do not know, its rather upsetting, but it doesn’t really need it.
Why I was blown away by the Nokia Lumia 900
The Nokia Lumia 900 is huge with its 127.8 x 68.5mm’s Its beautiful to look at, to feel and to hold. The Nokia Lumia has a 4.3-inch ClearBlack Amoled Display. The ClearBlack screen is amazing, its lifted slightly from the body of the phone and which, not only looks funky but the ClearBlack technology allows you to be able to see the screen even when outside in sunlight.
I found this the easiest and fastest Nokia phone that I have used. The Windows Phone 7.5 platform makes it fast and efficient. The tiles make it easy to navigate and I love that you also have an option to have them alphabetical order as it make it easy to find the application that you require. Okay, I wasn’t very excited that it uses Internet Explorer 9 but I had no lagging when connecting to the internet.
Obviously you have Facebook, Linkedin, email etc on this smartphone but I did have trouble finding an application for Twitter that I enjoyed using, but when I asked on Twitter I had lots of suggestions for apps.
The battery has up to 8 hours talk time and up to 400 hours standby – when I was using this phone it actually lasted me for 2 days without charging, and as an iPhone user this is amazing.
8 MP main camera, Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash, Auto Focus, 1 MP front camera, video calling – So yes the camera is also front facing so that you can take that all important profile picture for Facebook. Again I’ve heard that this phone takes some great pictures, but as usual mine were not all that great.
I’m not going to go into all of the spec’s of this phone as its been done 100 times you can see all you need on the Nokia Website
All in all, the Nokia Lumia 900 is a fantastic phone, it looks good, it feels good and it works efficiently. I have recently tried out a Windows Phone and didn’t enjoy using it all at, and the Nokia Lumia 900 changed my views completely.
