Summary: Looked like a great phone, using Windows OS. Unfortuneately, the phone didn't work with GSM network, and couldn't connect to a phone carrier. My only initial reaction is that you need to get your apps from Windows Store, they would like you to use a hotmail account to log into the store... while I like Gmail. Also, music from Zune. The capability to switch to WiFi is nice. Interface was nice what I saw of it.. I went to an Android phone after this.
Summary: I am a nineteen year old girl and like like to use apps such as instagram, snapchat, etc. The phone gives no option to download these apps. I did hear that they will be updating and it will be able to have apps, but it could be just a rumor. I highly recommend the LG Optimus g e970 model and/or the LG optimus pro. Both available to at&t customers. The Optimus has crisp screen quality and has one of the most amazing cameras that I've ever grasped.
Great functionality and comparable to anything on the market <$200.

Summary: Hands down I believe this is the best phone on the market for the price (although the price has gone up over the past 3 months when I bought my wife hers). One thing I particularly like is the wifi connectivity. I don't pay for data (although about to get the straight talk $45) and just use wifi wherever I go. The phone automatically connects and updates email, etc every time it finds a signal.
Summary: very good hardware and windows works very nicely and smooth. I would definitely give it 5 stars and did not return it if the phone had some multitasking capability and more applications. Skype works better than on Android, however when picking up the phone call it quits skype since it cannot multitask. This makes skype pretty much useless. This for me was a deal breaker and had to return it. Marketplace doesn't even have pandora, which is another big let up.
Excerpt: Good start but a long way to go to be considered high end. Using last gen's tech really lets this phone down. The unnaturally high reviews are purely based on the love for the nokia of old, im not saying this is a bad phone, im just saying there are better phones out there by a big margin. Apps are starting to get there and thats not really a deal breaker for me, but again a high end price for a mid-range phone is really a bit silly.
Excerpt: I purchased this Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Smartphone when it first came out. I thought it was the best invention ever. The camera works really well. There are many photo apps available. There is no Instagram though. I was pleased with it though it had limited applications. I waiting giving them the benefit of the doubt. Windows phones are fairly new. I figured that they would get more apps in time. The apps that want such as Shopkick will never come.
Excerpt: It doesnt really fit the lifestyle of USA. Great phone for anyone who just want it as a phone and camera, may be music. Not really a true smartphone. But it could be. I would say average battery, runs out pretty fast even though you dont run a lot of apps. Display is great while web surfing and email reading. But home page display is crappy. i/4 th of the home screen is empty.
