Nokia Lumia 900 Impressions
This new Nokia phone features a 4.3 inch OMLED touch screen, polycarbonate body, 1.4 GHZ processor with 512 megs of ram and 16 gigs of internal storage. It also features an 8 mega pixel camera with a 1.5 pixel front facing camera. It also comes preloaded with the new windows phone update called windows 7.5 Mango Extended.
Running on the Windows platform, this phone is definitely fast. It takes a lot of tasks for this phone to slowdown. Switching between applications is very crisp and precise. It feels light in your hand and feels durable due to the polycarbonate uniformed body. The screen is made to feel durable. It has a great touch screen and definitely feels accurate to the touch. Images are clear and crisp, especially with the 4.3 inch screen making it a great size. Not too big and not too small. Calls were very clear and my voice can be heard very easily due to the placing of the mic on the phone. Also, being a phone that supports 4G and LTE speeds, it means the phone downloads anything superfast. The internet, the Zune player, the apps, it all loads very clean and fast. Photos are very crisp and clean, but the only downside is that the video doesn’t record in full 1080p just 720p.
Not every phone is perfect. As you can imagine, there are some faults to this phone. For example, the body, especially around the corners because is very rectangular and not curved, makes the phone feel bulky. Being a smart phone you would expect a type of expandable storage, but there isn’t. The expandable storage on this window phone only comes with 16 gigs, which can fill up pretty fast, so you better use that skydrive! Another thing that might take some getting used to is on the side with the volume and the button that gives you quick access to the camera, there is the hold/power button, its right in the middle between the camera and volume which can add a scene of weirdness because most phones have the hold/power button on the top and not the side. The battery life is decent, it lasts longer than my android phone but barely, clocks in at about 6 hours of life for me of constant use, not the best but not the worst.
Now if you are due in for a upgrade and you are thinking about doing the switch to windows mobile but don’t want to spend 200 bucks on the Titan 2, then I highly suggest picking up this phone, it costs 100 bucks with a contract. Also right now you can choose from having this phone in black and or cyan colors.
