The Register reviews the Nokia Lumia 900

Published by at

The acerbic tones of UK tech website The Register have addressed the Nokia Lumia 900 in their latest review, and handed the 4.3 inch screened smartphone a cautious recommendation.

Lumia 900

At a glance, it looks very similar [to the Lumia 800], and you could be fooled into thinking we’d zoomed in on the Lumia 800. Changes in the shape are mostly limited to a screen which is now flat, unlike the curved-edged display on the earlier handset. This screen is gorgeous: bright and colourful as you’d expect from an OLED screen – or Clear Black Display as Nokia calls it. It’s sharp and vivid, making the Windows Phone tiles look great.

Phelan picks up on a number of issues in the Lumia 900, including the power management issues, the single-core CPU, and the lack of storage card expansion. All these issues are laid at the door of Microsoft, as he concludes that the Lumia 900 looks good, doesn't need a mega-number of specs, and is "pretty good quality."
