WayneSLSR, 22 Aug 2012I've had my Nokia Lumia 900 for about 8 weeks now. Very unhappy.
First, I was looking for GPS... moreWho needs longitude and latitude for a GPS? Nokia Drive and Nokia Maps are as good as any Garmin GPS in all other respects.. if I need people to let me know where I am I go onto the Facebook For Windows app and press the 'check in' icon.
The phone number part, I know 2 people who have the Galaxy SIII and their Facebook and email contacts also got added automatically to their contact list.
Javed, 21 Aug 2012Nokia when launching android operating system Nah, rather wait for WP8.
This phone has not released in India yet & is already outdated.
WP8 will be releasing soon & these lumia phones will not be upgraded as they all run on single core.
This phone is as same as Lumia800, so why to wait till it is released.
Samsung has already announced two WP8 phones. Nokia may announce it soon.
So, i'm waiting for WP8 phones as I'm not a great android fan :)
I feel that WP's have better interface than android & is much simpler to use.
The most exciting feature is X-Box like gaming.
I've had my Nokia Lumia 900 for about 8 weeks now. Very unhappy.
First, I was looking for GPS Longitude and Latitude being displayed in their Maps or Drive installed APPs. They don't exist and Nokia says they are not there also. Hard to show where your at to others. I had to get connected to WndowsPhone Marketplace to find a seperate APP that would allow me t get the info and be able to email the info. GPSInfo did that where 2 others only allowd me to send to SMS.
Second, I can't print to a wireless printer on my network, whereas my daughter can with her Android driven phone. Kokia confirms, can't be done.
Third, I can directly connect my phone to a USB cable and put my photos or videoson my PC. Must use The Zune program on my PC and I don't want Zune on it. Nokia confirms that and says I can send them to SkyDrive. I don't want them there either.
Forth, When I first set up my phone, I put 6 phone numbers into it. That's all I ever need on this phone. What happened next was it went and got all my Hotmail contacts and added them. I don't need all that info on my phone, only want it on my PC. What a pain.
I feel I have wasted $600 for a smartphone that doesn't do what I need. Very disppointed. Goint to try and sell this phone and buy an Android based phone. Starting my search all over again.

Aahh, I've only picked up one problem with this phone - and that is with the Facebook For Windows app.. when I type a long status update or when I type a long private message to someone, sometimes it kicks me out and goes to Bing.. but then when I press the back button it takes me back to the message I was busy with and then I carry on with the message. It's real frustrating sometimes but I can bear it because I still say this is such an amazing phone.
star, 06 Aug 2012Why lumia900 cannot do bluetoooth ?Bcoz its security.
Samsung is now launching the wp8 in October with an external storage card how is Nokia goin to survive and what are they going tonsellmthe lumia phones.
Had the Lumia 900 for a month now. I do love the look of the phone, the feel of it, and the Facebook and picture integration into the phone makes it really amazing. Unfortunately phone companies skip making sure the simple and basic things work well and these simple things eventually kills the phone for me.
The media player is really bad and lags alot till it starts.
Ability to download music is limited to a few websites no music downloader app.
Messages to what's app and Facebook messenger lag. I compared and had my Samsung galaxy 3 next to it which received the messages well before the lumia 900.
Freezes quite often.
Having to use Zune for a proper music library is not acceptable.
No external storage card.
For the time being I will go back to my galaxy 3 till those issues are fixed.
rahin, 10 Aug 2012which platform is best symbian or windows? suggest me ...quick ...Windows....
I love my nokia lumia 900. Happy with what it offers me and same with my iPhone 4s. Not a fan of android (iOS wannabe and king of piracy hardware and software wise from ios platform)
Security, social/entertainment and reliability are my main concern with my choice. Closed system is not bad it actually offers security. My mobile is my buddy and got all important stuffs saved in it. iPhone offers me that. Good reliable standardised apps which works perfectly on all my apple devices. Internet browsing and music/videos playing are awesome. Basic fun and useful apps.
How can u compare that with android? Most androi apps are not compatible with all the android devices. Android wants to do everything and that's what sucks and reliability and usefulness of the apps and the device itself is compromised. Virus issues having an open system. How can android protect you and ur data from hackers when it allows any third party apps to use its system.
Virus proned mobile OS.
Too many devices, to many specs that gives problem with android os and android devices some being high end and cheap ones.
I don't even think its value for money. Android devices depreciates its value straight away compared with apple devices.
And I think iPhone performs well as better than android. And seriously thinks no matter how android develop their devices with quad core, 1.5+ ghz processor and massive screens doesn't match what apple can offer with its more simple yet innovative approach with mobile technology. Android is just trying to be someone big and superior when quality usefullness, reliability and performance obviously is APPLE. I love iPhone though I have s2 and the lumia 900 to try. I like windows phone better than android. To some up, android is just a wanna be trying to copy apple and previous innovations of microsoft/windows. Though try said there are more people using android. It's not the numbers that count, its the quality, reliability and performance that apple offers and windows will offer soon.
iPhone (IOS) and Lumia (WP7/WP8) all the way!!
Any News on Nokia n9 Whatsapp application. when it is expected for release.
