Fantastic April 15, 2012
I had a Samsung Focus before but it was worn down after 2 years and I upgraded to this phone from all the craze created. Great phone. Size is perfect for me. Beautiful screen. Only complaint is the lack of expandable memory. I had a 16 gb micro sd for my focus and couldn't move the songs over. Other than that best phone ever owned.

Reviewer: IURIE TIBULSCHI (Washington DC) -
just few words, great hardware(for those who care), fast and responsive OS. many apps doesn't mean nothing it's all about how they can be helpful and not "harmful" like on some other OS. ...and most important, at least for me till the end it's a phone and you should be able to make a phone call during the all entire day. thanks NOKIA!
It's a winner! April 10, 2012
Not much else to say after all the in-depth reviews. I will just pile on with another 5 star vote.
In one word, the Nokia Lumia 900 - Awesome! April 10, 2012
I got mine last Friday and spent the weekend having fun with it... It was incredibly easy to set-up and it's amazing! The screen is large and vivid and everything is right there in front you. It's always risky buying into a brand new product and with phones, going against iPhone or Android, but this was one risk that's really rewarding!!
Solid and beautiful phone April 15, 2012
Reviewer: Mehran Parsheh "MP" (San Francisco Bay Area) -
I have used iPhone since 2009 but now my favorite phone is the beautiful Lumia 900. This phone is amazing. I like its feel in my hands, sturdy and nice. Beautiful design with nice curves, solid body and contrasting colors. The operative system is easy to use and is, indeed, very fast, much faster than my iPhone 4. I like the Marketplace that has almost every App I need and I do not miss the messy iPhone Apps store which has hundred of thousands of Apps that I do not need.
I have seen some complains that the pictures quality are not as good as other phones but my question is have these people used cameras customized settings to take some shots? If you use them you will see that Lumis pictures are great especially the wide angle setting.
I love the Nokia Apps such as Nokia drive and preloaded maps which allows me not to use my data plan while I am using GPS.
The battery life is great and is much better than my iPhone. After 12 hours of heavy using it still has 30% of capacity.
The phone smoothly syncs with my business outlook and business contacts are transfered to the phone automatically. I like the People menu which has all my contacts in one place. As I rated it, I love this phone and I am happy that I got the Cyan color before it was sold out. Not to mention that I got a $100 credit as I bought it before April 21.
What a phone April 12, 2012
I did not get it from Amazon but directly from ATT. What a phone it is!!!!! I did not have any problems with connection to internet. Connection to work e-mail is not even 30 seconds and updates are so much better then on Blackberry. Everything worked out of the box with no setup or painful manual grinding. I have it for 4 days as of this moment and I would recommend this phone to anyone. Easy to use, easy to see display, fast (very fast) maps and zoning in and out. Fast internet. Fast scrolling. I can talk about it forever. Overall, this is a very very very nice phone. Call quality is very good and it is much much better then any of my prior phones. Initial charge was long but battery lasts for about 24 hours (was not much used just downloading basic applications such as navigation). Nokia created a sweat program that made phone book migration a 1 minute undertaking. Display is very clear. Touch screen is very responsive. Scrolling is very fluid and pleasing. Overall, I do not have any problems with the phone. Well done Nokia, well done.
Very Good Phone with GPS navigation w/o data usage April 9, 2012
Reviewer: ronny111 "ron" (georgia) -
This is a very good phone. Finally free of annoying Symbian 'features'. I like Android phones, but I keep buying Nokia ones because of free navigation with built-in GPS with data transfer off - great overseas when using data would cost a fortune.
The best phone you can get for under $200 April 9, 2012
Reviewer: Tamerlan Soziev (Brooklyn NY USA) -
This phone is amazing, its so smooth and fast i cant even explain. It's as fast and responsive as iphone. I love a clean look of apps and especially a mail app. The only thing that is still better on iphone 4S is a camera...Nokia has a good camera too, but in low light conditions iphone 4S is just better. But other then that its a perfect phone.
Very happy adopter! Best phone I've ever used :) April 17, 2012
Reviewer: JimmyHoffa04 (SoCal) -
Coming from iPhone, it is a very different experience on this phone. The iPhone now feels very static to me, and not as "smart" as this phone. For instance, if I want to call some one on my iPhone I would go into my contacts and search for that person. On this phone I can just put that person on my main screen for easy access later, which means I only search for them one time. Also, while they are on my main screen I see constant updates about them. Very cool! This keeps me up to date with them. I didn't downloaded an app to do that, it just does it! I love it!
Good Job Nokia July 3, 2012
Reviewer: J. Dueck (University Place, WA) -
I purchased the Lumia 900 to replace a Samsung Focus and have been very pleased with it. The hardware is elegant and refined and complements the Windows Phone operating system well. The lack of a multi-core processor has been the source of much undeserved criticism. To that I would say, because the operating system is so light and efficient, there is no need for more than one core. Translation: less heat, thinner form factor and longer battery life.
The 4G HSPA+ is way faster than 3G in my area. Unfortunately, I have not been able to experience LTE since it is not yet available in my market.
Microsoft's decision to not offer an upgrade path to Windows Phone 8 for the Lumia 900 and other Windows Phone 7 hardware is regrettable yet understandable as it is the industry standard to deprecate older hardware for the sake of improved software. Anyone try running iOS 5 on anything older than an iPhone 3GS lately? Even the latest Android will not run on older hardware.
As a developer, I maintain devices with the three major mobile operating systems (Windows Phone, Android, iOS) and have settled on Windows phone as my primary development and usage platform. The Lumia 900 meets or exceeds all my expectations in a very aesthetic package. My only gripe is that the battery is NOT user servicable.
Glad I gave it a chance May 19, 2012
I originally purchased my Nokia Lumia 900 when the promo was going on with the $100 bill credit. This essentially made the phone free which is why I gave it a try. To my delight, this phone is problem free and very simple to use. Coming from android, I hate the lag and occasional freezing of apps. None of that here. Wifi connects very fast and everything works perfectly. This is a beautiful and well made phone that I will happily use for the next two years.
Nokia Sets New Gold Standard For Smartphones May 18, 2012
I've carried every version of the iPhone including the 4S, the original Samsung Focus, the HTC Trophy, the Samsung Focus S, and the HTC Titan. I can say without a doubt that this is the best smartphone I've ever used. The Lumia 900 is gorgeous to look at. It feels great in your hand. It is light but still hefty enough to give it a quality feel. The Windows Phone OS is extremely fast and smooth and a joy to use. AT&T LTE is extremely fast. Plus, the Lumia 900 has great call quality, great battery life, and the best screen on the market. Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps are outstanding free GPS/Map programs. Yes, you need to adjust the default camera settings to get the great pictures Nokia brags about - but that's no big deal. All-in-all - the best smartphone out there! 5 stars!
So Fast May 17, 2012
Even with the specs such a fast phone! Much faster then all the other androids I tested. Wow I was blown away with the speed of this device!
Great Deal April 22, 2012
Can't beat it for a top line phone with all the features I need. I like the blue one as well, but would prefer one in red. Large screen, easy to use & very responsive compared to my daughters droid 3.
buy this phone! April 21, 2012
Reviewer: James R Gilmore Jr (Pittsburgh) -
everything about this phone is well made from the screen to the buttons and the case. it goes along perfectly with the ultra fast windows phone software. it's only a single core processor and is just as fast or faster than any android or iphone out there very impressed with nokia and microsoft on this one. hope more people get to know this phone
Great phone and OS!!! April 18, 2012
Feels great in the hand. Very good screen with deep blacks and vibrant colors. Windows Phone 7.5 just works great without a problem. I almost forget to reboot it once a week or so just to give it a fresh start (not that I need to). The Live Tiles make it much nicer and modern then iPhone and Android. Zune music subscription is the best music service hands down and works great with my Xbox and Windows Phone. Office with SkyDrive integration is really great to access the same document from anywhere on my phone or PC. The Facebook integration is really easy nice to keep up with friends and family without trying very hard. There is plenty of Apps and only will get better with Windows 8!!!
incredible phone April 14, 2012
Reviewer: elpidio simon (stockton, CA United States) -
The best phone I've ever used. If you're looking for pure horsepower or specs then this phone is not for you. But if you give it an honest shot, then you won't be disappointed.
Nokia is the saving grace April 13, 2012
I love this phone, fast and smooth unlike android, but very simple like the iphone. The software and apps are improving, totally happy about my purchase and im happy, nokia is great! there is an update out for this, and it make my phone even more snappy!
A Windows Phone that will impress your friends April 10, 2012
Reviewer: Andy B
It's been a long time coming, but this is finally a Windows Phone that iOS and Android users will take notice. If I whip this out in front of my friends they all look at it in amazement, because that's what it is, simply amazing. I'm kind of a Windows fanboy but even if I weren't I would love this phone. I hope people get out and try it. Windows Phone has a GREAT phone out now, so MSFT needs to wrangle up as much exclusive apps/games as it can. That's its 1 lacking point now is quality of apps. Once those are out, WP7 will flourish, especially with this great device behind it.
Great phone, just in time for my upgrade! April 10, 2012
Reviewer: Dustin Delage
Coming from a Samsung Focus, this was an upgrade for someone used to the OS and its ecosystem. Almost all aspects of this device have been improved over Samsung's Focus implementation. I have all of my app wants/needs met, but I have pretty modest needs. The 85,000+ apps might not seem like allot to some, but I'm satiated. And the market keeps growing. My only complaint is that the touch response seems a bit slower than the Focus. Not laggy, just not as fast to follow long and fast finger movements.
