Lumia 900 is great April 19, 2012
When I buy a product, product, price, service and brand are the major factors impacting my decision making. All I can say is I am very satisfied with my decision to choose Lumia 900.
Great hardware, finally makes Windows Phone feel like a real player April 19, 2012
I had a Samsung Focus, and it was pretty decent. The Windows Phone OS is interesting, and at times brilliant. But I don't think the Focus necessarily showed the full promise of Windows phones. The Lumia 900 is a great device -- feels solid, has a very nice screen, and is fast (both CPU and network). It is a nice looking phone, to boot. With the Nokia device I finally "get" the promise of the Windows phone platform.
There will be haters who won't take these phones seriously, which is too bad. It's a great phone, and at $100 is a pretty amazing value. Worth checking out!
Great Phone! April 18, 2012
I have the phone for 2 days now. This is my first smartphone but I have seen fair share of android and apple phones. It is very fast and smooth. For the price I paid, the phone is just unbelievable. I am really impressed. A happy camper here.

It's a great phone and even better than iPhone 4S. I like the display and camera. It's fast and looks really nice.
I was thinking to buy an iphone but eventlayy decided to buy Nokia Lumia 900 and I'm happy with my new purchase.
Everyone wants to hold and touch this phone... April 16, 2012
Reviewer: claude j louis-charles (Lorton, VA, US) -
Ok, I have owned Android (Buggy) and IPhone. But the Nokia is fresh and new. I sat it on the table during a conference/meeting and people want to hold and touch it. The live tiles and peoples names flipping over is kinda cool. My wifes Iphone just looks dated sitting next to my Nokia. My 900 feels good/solid in my hand. For all the things I really need my phone for it does great... If Microsoft can get more Apps specifically the top 50-100 Android/Iphone apps then Android better look-out. Plus how can you beat the price??
Awesome Smart Phone April 16, 2012
Reviewer: Suren Alla
I have purchased this phone couple of days back and I feel it's really awesome phone. Nokia & Microsoft had done a commendable job with this phone. Unfortunately there was a small data connectivity issue bug appeared for small amount of phones. But overall I am very much satisfied with this phone. Before coming into Windows OS, I have used both IOS & Android devices. IOS have good amount of apps. This is the only advantage with IOS, but though Google have lots of apps, but I am not happy with them. Most of them have buggy and not working properly..
Overall Windows OS apps have different experience and I like tab system...[[ASIN:B007P5NHJO Nokia Lumia 900 4G Windows Phone, Black (AT&T)]]
Awesome Windows Phone April 12, 2012
Windows Phone 7 is a great mobile OS - probably the best out there. But with hardware like the Nokia Lumia 900 it takes the entire mobile phone experience to the next level. It's easy to use, looks and feels great and can do everything that a smart phone needs to be able to do.
Free Nokia Lumia 900 April 12, 2012
I purchase from local AT&T for $99.99, but Nokia is giving a $100 rebate to phones purchased by April 21st. I have the Nokia Lumia 900 now for 3 days and it replaces my Blackberry Torch. I am thrilled with the design of the phone, it is light weight with smooth curves for easily holding in one hand. This is a solidly built phone with Nokia quality. The windows OS is very easy and friendly to use. I like the flexibility of setting tiles to activate my favorite features which have grown to be many tiles. I have arranged the tiles in my preferred sequence based on usage. This phone has a great camera, that is easily accessible with a side button. Camera features are easy to use with zoom displayed right on screen. Switching to video and recording are intuitive and a breeze to use. I love the AM/FM radio that allows me to listen to music and news. The applications Nokia provides - Nokia Drive GPS , Nokia Public Transit to over 80 Cities, Wireless Transfer of Contacts from your old phone are well thought out and necessary. There is much more offered and I am still learning, if you have thought about upgrading to a smartphone, this is the perfect opportunity to get a great phone and if ordered by April 21st it is virtually FREE with the $100 rebate. I would buy this phone even without the rebate. This phone is crucial to Nokia and Microsoft in their quest to compete with Iphone and Android - Much credit has to be given to Nokia and Microsoft for bringing us a truly amazing phone. Social Networking is at the heart of this phone not to mention the business background that Microsoft has introduced with MS Office applications. Gamers will love all the Xbox games and there is more. Do some research and get yourself a phone you will be proud to hold in your hand. I almost forgot that this phone is a 4G Lte phone with blazing speed on the internet with a larger 4.3 screen for easy reading. Hope you will enjoy this phone as much as I am..
PS: I have not lost a call even while listening to music while receiving calls, call ends and music starts playing. I love it!!
Awesome Phone! April 12, 2012
I love this phone! So beautiful, so fast, so slick. MS and NOK have done a great job here. I think I will be recommending this to all my friends and family.
Better then iPhone, Android, Palm, Blackberry April 10, 2012
Reviewer: Alex Dossenback
Okay, over the years I have had every phone in the market. The ones that come close to comparing to this phone would be the iPhone 4s, Samsung Galaxy S II, Droid Razor, MyTouch. Out of all of those phones this one is the best so far. The iPhone is good but over rated.
Nokia has been my favorite company for a long time now the Nokia I have owned is the straight talk slide phone and the Nokia Astound.
Yeah Android is great with many options to choose from but Nokia's have the best battery life I have ever had. The phone shows that out forth a lot of time money and reach to create this phone. When I first say the ad on YouTube I Google this and pre order the thing and this was the first Windows phone I have ever used and this totally WOWED me with the smooth response and the HD Display.
ONE THING BAD ABOUT THE PHONE... I WISH IT WOULD WORK WITH T-MOBILE AND ALL THE OTHER COMPANIES! THAT'S ALL I KNOW THAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PHONE.
Amazing Smart Phone!!! April 10, 2012
This is the best windows phone in the market. It's a beautiful piece of work. I've left reviews on other sites as well regarding this amazing phone. I think many people have undermined Nokia and Microsoft when it comes to smart phones. I have to say this is truly a flawless phone as far as features and price point.
The OS is very smooth and fast response time. EXTREMELY user-friendly and robust operating system. The hardware is built so solid and the beauty of luxury. All the Apple users are really hating on this phone because they really got robbed buying that overpriced Iphone. The Iphone is a overrated trend and Apple is good for nickel and dime to death. I highly recommend this phone to anyone!!! Great Phone!!!
Nokia Lumia 900.... Best Windows Phone to date April 10, 2012
Reviewer: George W. Elgart
I got my pre-ordered Lumia 900 on Friday. It was a terrific deal. I was already very supportive of Windows phone having used an LG for about a year. The Lumia is remarkably fast and despite the size of the screen fits easily in my pocket. It is one of those phones people notice, and I have been comparing it quite favorably to the other smartphones in my family, including several iPhones.
That is also a great phone, but the Nokia is consistently quicker at getting the results I need, and the call quality is a big step up from my previous device, and from the iPhone.
The camera is also better, but it really helps to look at all of the custom options in the camera menu. They make a difference.
Nokia shipped it with a card to make an appointment with one of their customer service reps to go over the phone, and despite using a windows phone for more than a year, I found them exceptionally helpful. I got my skydrive working very well and it is nice to have access to all my important work at a moment's notice.
Overall, great phone and great deal. Also, somehow, with my contract I am actually paying less than my previous device, also on AT%T for data with an unlimited plan.
Very happy with this device.
Great design, great quality, great deal! April 10, 2012
Reviewer: Mother of 2
Blown away by how great the handset is given the cost.
Despite sharing some of the same stats/chipsets with other WP7 devices, the Lumia 900 is different, in a very good way. Play with one at AT&T or a friend's to see what I mean, online pictures/videos don't do it justice.
- Great battery life, lasts all day despite intense usage.
- Great front/back cameras.
- Great screen, lower resolution than iphone4, but 4.3" size makes iphone's display seem pathetically small. Easier to read in daylight than my Samsung Focus S, which also has a decent screen. Not as big as Samsung Galaxy Note's 5.3", but Lumia 900's 4.3" screen seems to be a good fit for me, fits in my pocket better and leaves more cash in my pocket than Samsung Galaxy Note.
- Great reception/call-quality, need AT&T to enable 4G LTE where we live.
- Great apps, the ones that are available are awesome, platform needs more apps, fortunately they seem to be coming.
- Great for reading and writing-short emails anywhere while doing other stuff. Outlook/Hotmail email app blows away desktop email clients for being able to easily sift through and read emails. I only use laptop to write longer emails.
- Great user interface, liking the WP7 smart tile UI, simple and intuitive.
- Great solid case that laughs at scratches since the color isn't just skin deep like some cheapo slapped together handsets.
- Ok Resolution, could be higher, but that's really the only thing I can complain about. Still am able to read plenty via the kindle reader.
Great phone and great OS. April 10, 2012
Reviewer: Jeffrey A. Hawkins (Alpharetta, Georgia United States) -
I pre-ordered the Nokia Lumia 900 from AT&T and received it on Friday April 6th. My past phones where all iPhones and after reading a lot about Window's Phone 7 OS, I decided I would make the switch when the Lumina 900 was released.
I'm very impressed with this phone! The quality of the phone it self is amazing for a $100 phone and the quality of the OS is amazing as well. I can't believe how easy and smooth this phone is to use.
As for the Apps... all the important ones are there. The only app I miss from my iPhone is DropBox but hopefully with a little persuasion, DropBox will port their app to WP7.
Pretty darn Amazing April 9, 2012
Reviewer: Can Comertoglu
Really good OS, superbly pretty phone, amazing camera.
The only thing that's missing is a richer app store - but that's a chicken and egg problem, when Nokia phones sell, app developers will come.
Nokia Lumia 900 is a great phone! April 9, 2012
I came from an android phone where battery life was about 7 hours with no use. Also, the android phone crashed about 4 times a day and had serious lag issues. I got about 30 hours on my first charge with the Lumia 900 and I used it more than normal since it was new. Also, it has not locked up at all and there is no lag. The screen is very bright and usable in sunlight. With LTE, I get 22 mbps download and 4 mbps upload at my house.
Below are a list of pros/cons for the lumia 900 for me.
Speed (no lag)
Nokia Apps: Drive(Navigation app), Creative
Studio (picture editor), Maps
None for me
Ease of Use
Limited Apps in the Marketplace, but will get
Nokia Plus Windows Phone Equals Awesome! April 9, 2012
I have owned a Windows Phone device since its very first arrival with the Samsung Focus and the Dell Venue Pro which still turns a lot of heads and now the Nokia Lumia 900. I absolutely love the slick smooth design that describes both the hardware and the software. There are people that will say WP is lacking in some of the major apps and that can be a deal breaker for some. I suggests you give this phone a try and find a third party app if the official apps aren't available and wait for them to join the party. Yes the Nokia Lumia 900 and Windows Phone are just that good. Looking for Words With Friends? Try Words By Post or Wordfued until it arrives. This phone is easy to use, the live tiles populate your messages and YES you can send and respond to text and Facebook chat messages with your voice without touching your phone. Wanna control your Xbox with your phone? Only on Windows Phone. My family members are all raving about how beautiful my Lumia is and they all ask when is Sprint going to get this phone? Thank you Nokia for the best designed phone EVER!
UPDATE!!! On 4/14/12 After 13 years with Sprint our 5 lines family plan moved to AT&T and we purchased 5 Lumia 900's!!!
so refreshing! April 9, 2012
i used to own experia and iphone 4
-Nokia gps maps
it works offline, is like tom tom in your pocket!
-so smooth ,no android lags anymore
-quality comparable to iphone 4
-battery life like on old nokias (ok maybe not that good but i'm going thought the day without worrying)
-internet on that thing is so fast
-SCREEEEEEN maybe is not full HD but it looks ridiculous, the black color is so...black and everything is so vivid
-app store have like 70,000 apps and i had no problem with finding what i want(but could be better) at least all the apps go through some quality check, they all look and feel very integrated in to windows.
-only 12 fart apps :( compared to bagyllion android fart apps, that is bad

Perfect Bright and Responsive August 16, 2012
Reviewer: Yes or No
The Nokia Lumia 900 has been the best phone I've had to date. Other great phones I've owned are the iPhone 4s 3gs, HTC Evo, Moto Droid and HTC HD2. This phone needs little improvements and it's great from the box. Windows Phone Marketplace has beefed up and won't disappoint. All in all the point is I don't feel like something is missing when using this phone. I don't have to spend time searching for installed apps like iPhone or the need to tweak to OS like an Android. This phone seems solid and lightweight as well. You'll be glad you got it. There is a reason for all these great reviews.
