Nokia Lumia 900 is the best phone ever, Siri says so
What is the best cell phone ever made? Giving an answer to that question is like trying to determine the best Jellybean flavor. In other words, it is pretty difficult since every phone is special in its own way. If we go by sales figures, the top spot would be occupied by the Nokia 1100, over 250 million of which have been sold worldwide. On the other hand, the most recognizable phone is undoubtedly the iPhone. The HTC Dream, also known as the HTC G1, was the first commercially available Android phone – a phone that paved the way for the most popular mobile platform to become what it is today, so it also deserves some credit.

But according to Siri, the best cell phone ever is the Nokia Lumia 900. Interestingly, she does not crown the iPhone as top dog, rather a device Apple's smartphone is competing with. However, that is because her response appears to be influenced by specific criteria. The Lumia 900 has been rated very high by customers due to its good value-for-money ratio and fresh design, despite the few road bumps (connectivity glitches, display issues) the phone hit soon after launch. That is why Siri thinks that Nokia's flagship is the best phone ever.

Technically, Siri is still not out of beta, so if you ask her the same question in the future, the iPhone would likely be favored. But in the meantime, feel free to experiment and see which phone she thinks is best.

Siri : What is the most fragmentated, laggy, & sluggish phone with malware and spyware? Answer : Technically every Android phone, you know it don't you?

It's not Siri who thinks the Lumia 900 is the best phone, it's Wolfram Alpha that Siri uses to get an answer http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=What%27s+the+ best+cell+phone+ever%3F

quit repeating about those bumps PA. when you start talking about your beloved iphone you don't mention about it's flaws over and over again (just for the record: antenna, battery, display leakage, etc.)

Actually its cyan lumia 900. If you are not a poweruser and uses the phone for calling, social networking, display tech, design, fluidity, photography it is a great phone for the average user.

Well, Siri is right! Nokia Lumia 900 IS the best phone for its price. For the average user, 900 is indeed a very good cellphone.

When did siri get to test lumia 900. She is definitely telling truth. Been using for little more than 2 weeks loving it.

Hey Nick T. it seems you were dissappointed that Siri didn't choose iphone. That's why you are quick to explain why Siri chose Lumia 900 instead of iphone. "However, that is because her response appears to be influenced by specific criteria'', well who set the criteria, Nokia?? "Technically, Siri is still not out of beta, so if you ask her the same question in the future, the iPhone would likely be favored''- if she wasn't ready why put her in the iphone 4s as a major feature?? "What is the best cell phone ever made? Giving an answer to that question is like trying to determine the best Jellybean flavor. In other words, it is pretty difficult since every phone is special in its own way''- really?? You seem to think Siri make a mistake. She should have selected the iphone. Base on your criteria of course.

Not disappointed, but I find it funny because Siri has hardwired responses to certain questions, but not to the one above. These responses are often quite human-like. For example, to "Tell me a funny joke", Siri responds with "I can't. I always forget the punch line.", and if you ask "What is the best tablet ever?", the response is "There is only iPad." The story is a bit like lifting the hood of a Toyota and finding a sticker saying that Mercedes is better. Siri's answer was based on user reviews on the internet, as it is clearly shown on the screenshot. And by the way, there is no such thing as "best cell phone ever". There are only user preferences and fanboyism.

I thought he was just explaining the situation. I cant believe i missed all of Nick's blatant fanboy craziness. Thanks for pointing that out!! naughty naughty Nick T!!! lololol Just incase u didnt get it.. thats internet sarchasm. :) So they canned in the response for the ipad, but let it answer honestly for phones. Thats funny. Well, there goes all our resident troll's arguements about how the iphone is the highest rated consumer phone. Siri says your lying.

That Siri, she is pretty smart. The Lumia 900 is one of the nicest cellphones I have ever seen, with the great N9 body fattened up, and that beautiful feature phone-esque 800x480 screen. It's just a shame that it isn't a very good smartphone, because being tied into a hobbled, dead-end ecosystem that will not be updated to the next iteration and having 2010 hardware for two years from 2012 should be a criminal offense.

LOL what are you talking about? WP7 ecosystems has been growing steadily over the past months, much more then Symbian, or Blackberry. Of course it's not going to catch up to Android or iOS' respective app stores. I don't think anyone in there right mind would consider the screen on the 900 feature phone, just because it doesn't have the highest resolution. Also very unlikely that the 900, a flagship phone, will not get Apollo or at least some of the features regardless of what Microsoft has said or not said.

Perhaps you haven't looked lately and seen that Bada outpaced it last quarter, as did RIM.
