dirtworm's review of the Nokia Lumia 900

original version, submitted Aug 10, 2012, 9:32 AM:

Go buy two!

This phone should be resurrecting Nokia and propelling Windows; it doesn't seem to be but it should be.

If you are one of the lucky ones who grabbed this phone at a ridiculously low price (with a contract), congrats. I am happily one of that number.

Pros:

Everything.

The battery is a champ,
The camera is useful, efficient, and sophisticated (white balance, macro focus, etc.)
The Windows OS is Awesome!
Solid construction,
vivid, easy to read screen
Very quick processing,
Excellent call quality

Gaming: With Xbox companion it becomes a remote control for your Xbox. Also tons of games available, some even link up with your Xbox live gamertag. Want to play final fantasy on your phone?

Cons: It didn't come with a free cookie. That would have been nice.

If you are worried a Windows OS will limit you from an app perspective, put your mind at ease. Nokia Drive alone is worth buying this phone (a free voice guided turn by turn navigation app.... free I said.... and it works great!.... with downloadable maps and voices so you don't use data!!!)

There are plenty of apps available, and more all the time. The most important thing I have noticed is that all the apps work flawlessly.

My last phone was a Palm running Web OS, which might have been the best OS ever developed for a Smart Phone but nobody bought it. I don't think Windows will suffer the same fate, and it might be as good.
