It's the first August Friday of 2012 and we here at PhoneDog hope you have fun plans lined up for this weekend. We will be around thinking, writing, and dreaming about cell phones! Thanks to PhoneDog fan Michael Mincey we have a user review to feature today about the fifth place device on the OSR, the Nokia Lumia 900.
"A Nice, Welcome Change from iPhones and Android" By MICHAEL MINCEY on July 28, 2012
I'm not gonna mince words. This is one of the best phones I've ever used, and I have gone through 4-5 phones a year (I've worked in telecom for over 10 years, so I like to keep up). I've had high end Android devices since the OG Droid, I've had Blackberries, and I've owned the iPhones in models 3G, 3Gs, 4, and 4s. This phone has done me right. From the display, to the stellar battery life (I'm not kidding, it's good), this phone is quite the underdog.
People love to ding the platform from 'lack of apps'. Well, what I love best is that most of the stuff that people do most often, like social networking, are built into the OS. I love not needing an app to do everything on this phone when it comes to being social. With the iPhone, you need a freaking app to do everything. And then it takes forever to get into an app to get to work. With Android, it's just all over this place. I used to think that was a great advantage until I used this device and realized how much time I was wasting.
This phone is to the point and while not a ton of apps, 100,000 is a lot and I've found every app I need. I'll be a fan until the Windows 8 devices start to roll out.
