Performance

In day to day use the phone is fast and snappy. Not once have I felt that it has been lagging when switching between apps or performing tasks like editing documents or opening up files. The capacitive screen is responsive and my overall impression after using the phone for a week, is that is more than fast enough for daily use.

To back up my impression I have installed the WP Bench Free application and performed its suite of tests, which allows you to compare the device with other Windows Phone 7 devices. According to this app the CPU (sequential and parallel) score is great, the DATA (memory and storage) score is average and the GPU (acceleration/fillrate) score is great as well.




Subscore 9 out of 10

Conclusion

The Nokia Lumia 900 is a great phone which offers the best of hardware combined with what I think is the best mobile operating system out there today. The screen with its size, vivid colors and responsiveness is great. The unibody design is beautiful and on par with anything Apple has to offer. The only thing I have to complain about is an average camera and average battery life, but in the grand schemes of things, this is one of the best smartphones on the market. It has replaced my iPhone 4 as the phone I use daily, and it has helped me decide not to upgrade to iPhone 5. The next step up is the Lumia 920, which will be available in early November, according to the latest rumors. That phone offers the same beautiful design, but with much better specs, a much better camera and the new Windows Phone 8 operating system. Until that phone arrives – the Nokia Lumia 900 is a great smartphone – and my current choice!

In Norway you can now get a Lumia 900 from NetCom for the ridiculous price of 1 NOK (17 cents) with a 1 year contract which includes 400 MB Data, 400 SMS and 400 minutes of call time a month (399 NOK a month – $66,50 – total of 4789 NOK – $798 for a full year including the price of the phone), or from Telenor for 899 NOK ($150) with a 1 year contract which includes 400 MB Data, 400 SMS and 600 minutes a call time a month (449 NOK a month – $75 – total of 6287 NOK – $1048 for a full year including the price of the phone).

The NetCom deal seems like a no-brainer for me Open-mouthed smile – that said, prices will probably drop even lower as the Lumia 920 is set to become available early November.

Aw, this was a very nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce
a great article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
