Nokia Lumia 900 vs Apple iPhone 4S

0. phoneArena 03 Apr 2012, 20:31 posted on

Stirring things up on AT&T’s lineup, smartphones need to be aware that the Nokia Lumia 900 is out for blood and setting its eyes on some of the best of the best in the market. Rightfully so, we think it’s relevant to pit Nokia’s flagship against, you know, Apple’s pride and joy in the iPhone 4S – since they’re both so gosh darn lovable in many ways...

This is a discussion for a review. To read the whole review, click here

Remix please read. Samsung has Foxconn make products for them. It was in the NY Times article that attacked Apple about working conditions at Foxconn and its also on Foxconn's Wikipedia page.

Why does the commentator in the video comparison keeps saying the iPhone 4S has a 5 megapixel camera?! It's an 8 megapixel one!

Why did John V. set up the background in white? it looks awful!!....The Nokia Luma 900 has a ClearBlack AMOLED display so thefore the best color for the background is "BLACK".

I've got to disagree with a few. The camera on both the Lumia 800 and 900 have been less than stellar to say the least; yet, the iPhone offers little to no options when it comes to the camera; I'd give slight edge to the iPhone in the camera department. Also the processor, while it's clocked at around 800 mhz it's still dual core and hence I'd also give that to the iPhone. Other than that, I think you're spot on.

Seems you made a fwe mistakes John V, the iPhone 4S has an 8 Megapixel Camera and the Nokia Lumia 900 is indeed connected to LTE and not HSPA+. Other than that, nice review.

I'm sure someone must have already caught this but just incase, the iPhone 4S has a 8 MP camera and not a 5 MP like the video states.

I love Nokia and Window and I'm so glad to see that they have released this kick a** phone. Hopefully, people catch on and buy it. I can't imagen what Xbox Live titles there going to release on these devises. I'm sure that it will bring them a lot of attention from gamers. You go Nokia+Windows!

Finally a phone that can compete with the Iphone 4S! I thought Android would make a phone that is worthy to be compared to the iphone, but it look like windows beat them to it. The 900 beats the the almost every android phone except the note GN and equal to the S2. (im talking in terms of smoothness and overall design). I used this phone before and for a Single core phone its a beast!

i don't understand why fanboy and android have an endless ongoing argument in every gadget/phone review, even in WP and iOS review, lol, i know ios is overpriced but it is overpriced when we are thinking only about the hardware, but in ecosystem and userfriendly departement ios still one step ahead, the app store is easy to navigate, almost no dangerous app (power drain, add, or even virus) even my mother can use it, and believe me, my mother is nokia s60 lover (just sms and phone) but when she bought iphone she love it. on the other hand, people with "open source" love will love android, and their lineup flagship phone has amazing line up, in term of hardware i will choose android, but in easyness to use, iphone for the time being, don't know in 2 or 3 years from now. i love android, but i still love my iphone, and no, i'm not rich, i buy it with a credit for a year. and my android is a quarter in the price area from my 4s, but still the hardware is very good, in the end every phone you choose is only because you want it. (and i can't wait to get a WP as soon as possible, big microsoft fan). sorry for the mess up english

Epic phone the Lumia 900. I can only feel that with Windows Phone 8, a Nokia phone with a higher resolution (screen), more features, and dual core processor will seriously demolish all if they keep up with excellent designs.

Im an at&t employee and have been given a lumia 900 for over a week now and let me tell ya, major dissapointment. Screen isnt better than samsungs, data connection problems, and though i love the cleverness and layout of wp7, it gets incredibly boring after a few days. Android will remain king of OSes until someone else comes along with another one that gives you unlimited potential.
