Nokia's Hardware + Windows Phone 7.5 = near Perfection By Marc OKelly, posted: May 7
Display 5/5 Despite the screen resolution, being 400 x 800 the screen provides excellent quality and pixels are hardly noticeable unless you are trying to find them. The display shows great outdoors in direct sunlight even at the lowest setting. When viewing from an angle the display keeps retains its vibrant look with nice saturation.
Reception & Call Quality 5/5 Comparing the call quality and reception of a Motorola device such as the droid RAZR, the Lumia 900 provides the same critically acclaimed quality of Motorola's devices provide clear calling and never gotten a dropped call or data signal while in service area.
Battery Life 5/5 For moderate use this device's battery life is amazing unless you are traveling for more than 8 hours this device gets the job done. Personally I get between 10-20 hours a day depending on downloads and web browsing all on 4g not LTE I do not have lte in my area. Design/
Form Factor 4/5 The Lumia 900's uni-body design is durable and sleek. I dropped my device 5 times from no more than 3 feet height and the device remains barely scratched except for the metal ring that is placed around the camera which got scratched on the second day. But that is not the reason I gave it a 4 the reason I gave it a 4 is because of the power button which is hard to locate at times were you can't see the actual button and it is not as firmly placed as the volume buttons.
Apps & Media Support Despite not having all the apps that Android or iOS have there are great alternatives but like iOS the usually aren't free. finding a pathetic app is hard to find because the are usually hidden underneath Microsoft's, Nokia's, and ATT's featured apps and Xbox live apps where you would find all the essential apps like Nokia maps, Facebook, twitter, CNN, ESPN and weather apps. Overall this device is spectacular and provides a wonderful alternative to the iPhone's static OS and something as beautiful yet more reliable than Android. Overall 4.8/5
