Review: the Nokia Lumia 900 Smartphone

Yesterday I posted a blog about the new Microsoft devices shown at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES). Today I’d like to focus on one of those, the Nokia Lumia 900.

Nokia Lumia 900 

Fast Performance

The Nokia Lumia 900 allows data downloads up to 50Mbps on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. That means that you’ll be able to view videos as fast as you can click on them, and never wait. It means your email arrives on time and you’re not sitting looking at an hourglass. It means the Web is totally fun to use on your mobile.

But if you don’t have the LTE network, you can use the HSPA with a 21 Mbps download speed.


Are you still squinting when you look at the screen? Try this. The Lumia 900 boasts of a large, 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display. This provides a big, crystal clear and super-colorful screen indoors and out. The resolution is 800 by 480 pixels.

On the Inside

Great, but what about the processor? To support the phones new capabilities there is a 1.4GHz processor, running on an updated chipset. It is a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8055 + MDM9200. This should address the consumers needs for fast performance because no matter how good the screen looks, if the performance is scanky, forget about it. But Lumia fixes that. The CPU will keep the phone running smooth and make sure everything happens now.

The Battery

Battery power, right? Must be powerful, right? So because of the bigger screen this means that your battery won’t last too long. But that’s not the case here.  With a 1830mAH battery in the Nokia Lumia 900 will last for about 7hrs talk-time and up to 300hrs on standby. And here is an interesting dimension of the battery power. If you switch to flight mode and use it just as an MP3 music player, it’ll keep going for more than two-and-a-half days.


This Lumia 900 model has a large f2.2/28mm aperture, allowing more light into the camera for faster performance, lower chance of motion blur and better low-light shots. Hi-res video captures for 720p/30fps action footage are possible. And there’s a second, front-facing camera to support for video calls (1-megapixel with an f2.4 lens and 30fps capture).

Overall, this model from Nokia, the company that Microsoft made a Windows Phone 7 partnership last year, seems to be just what Microsoft wanted. Maybe it will help Microsoft get a bigger market share in the smartphone market.

    So you really think that 21Mbs downspeed is not enough to see movies instantaneously and receive email whereas 50Mbs is enough? Then how come on a 3g network non HSDPA i still can watch videos perfectly without waiting ? This is really a non-professional statement.
    If the time comes where we will need connection speeds over 10000000 of mbits then I say we are screwed.
