Best Phone I Have Ever Owned,
This review is from: Nokia Lumia 900, Black 16GB (AT&T) (Wireless Phone)
Went from a gen one Iphone to a 3g, then to a Samsung Focus, lost the focus at a Mavricks game so i went into the store and lo and behold Nokia of all mother-loving companies has a new smartphone out. Having owned Nokia phones in the past quality of construction is guaranteed (the focus was cheap and plasticky). Picked it up right away (for free i might add) and never had any of the problems others are reporting. Still I applied the software update through zune (actually a really good software suite, another huge surprise) never can be too careful.
Best parts of the phone,
1) Design. I love the way this thing looks, i got the black version but the blue one really pops.
2)Speed. This phone is blazing fast ive never seen internet so fast on a phone before. Every app loads up really fast and youtube works like it never has before for me on a mobile
3) App ecosystem. The best apps are designed for Windows Phone 7 specifically, and when they are it really shows through in the unity of design. USA today app, Flixter, IGN, and IMDB are some of my favorites they look and work great. I finally found pandora on the phone as well, wpPandora works great (though i still hope for official support)
4) Battery life. Thats to be expected with such a fricken huge battery on this thing, my old focus would die after just a few hours of heavy use, don't even get me started on the anemic original 3g iphone. This mamma jamma can go all dang day without needing a wall socket.
5) I was worried if the phone was going to be as well supported as the Iphone, but nokia and MS having come out with a software fix and offering a 100 dollar credit less than a week after the phone launched was the deal sealer for me. If they are willing to admit immediately that there is a problem and then FIX IT a company has my support.(unlike apple and its grip of death B.S.)
But this phone BEFORE the 21st of april and you essentially get it for FREE. Its really the best darn phone I've ever used.
Android users. Stay away, you cant customize anything other than the color of the livetiles and the lock-screen so you will probably hate it. Though honestly i like a more controlled ecosystem than the chaos that is android.
