At any rate, to each his own. It took several people describing the same thing in different ways for me to finally recognize what you were all describing and I used the phone with no complaints over the entire weekend.

Like I said, I had the HTC Arrive, and it played the way it was suppose to. It's a problem and it needs to be fixed. Simple as that. I'm not gonna sit here and argue about it. I'm just here to back him on his claim cause it's true and I experience it too. I don't care about the start screen scrolling, that's the least of my problems but it's effecting my gameplay experience and that's not cool

I already said I can notice it now. But as Daniel said, "I am not sure how much that translates to real world differences between the devices." (or something to that effect)
If the phone doesn't play Doponachi Maximum well enough for you, then take it back. If it doesn't bother you enough to do that, then I guess the issue is kind of closed, huh?

No cause i'm happy with the phone. It's my only issue with it so far. It can easily be fixed with an update. Why else do we have firmware/software updates for? I understand the phone was rushed to the market with little time on their hands but they need to address this with an update. If we don't speak up, how do you expect it to get fixed? but it's not like it can't be fixed with an update
Stop acting like people are trying to attack the phone. If it has a problem, then it has a problem. No phone is perfect. smh

I haven't held the N900 yet (hopefully tomorrow), but it seems that if it's taking 6-7 strokes to reach the bottom of the App screen, with only the default apps, then the responsiveness may be a little slow. However, I would think it can be adjusted with a software update.

It probably CAN be fixed with an update, but therein lies the problem. Who knows WHEN an update would come? Remember, they're sorta letting the carriers dictate update cycles now. And this phone is brand new, so I wouldn't expect anything for at least a few months.
I'm just saying, if this were an iPhone or a Nexus device (running pure Android), then they could squash it in a week or two.

I think in this case, the importance of this phone works in our favor. Assuming it's something that can be fixed (and needs to be fixed, which I won't argue, as I would be happy with rock solid performance, after all), then I think we are more likely to see updates for this phone than any other non-iPhone, non-Nexus device. It's kind of up there with those two brands as being the "purest" WP7 experience, because of the partnership between MS and Nokia.
This is also true of the camera, which again, assuming it can/needs to be fixed, probably will get an update. AT&T isn't going to hold back updates for THIS handset lightly...I hope!

Worst thread in the history of wpcentral :rolleyes:

Poll Problems Or No Problems
Just to set the record straight, I'm not defending the phone as perfect. I completely agree with you--if it has issues, let's make sure Nokia, AT&T, and MS knows about them. At the same time, we can't come across as overly negative either. It's a balancing act, but a necessary one if we claim to be champions of any particular OS or phone.
Nokia wants feedback on the Lumia 900--I signed up to give it to them and this is something I will try to comment on if given the chance.

ATT admitted to wanting to hold the Lumia 900 release for tango cause it has features on it they want but they released it anyway. Tango is not that far off, I'd say it should be out sometime in May/June. All the other updates only been bug fixes. I think ATT rather push out those bug fixes with bigger updates that have added features like tango than pushing out a bunch of small updates. So it seems the carriers are holding off on small fixes and waiting for bigger updates with more features. So I wouldn't worry about tango not being pushed, ATT wants those MMS features

And why did you feel the need to respond if its the worst thread ever? Just keep your head in the sand. Everything's fine, mate.

The 900 that took 6-7 swipes to go through the default app list was defective. I have almost 250 apps and I can go through the whole thing with 7 or 8. Now there is a slight delay when drawing or moving my finger really fast. But I didn't even notice till I read this thread. Tbh I don't think I've ever used a touch screen device that drew like the lumia 800 that Daniel showed in that vid. I just assumed that all touchscreens were that way. Probably why I didn't even notice.

Some of the answers here leave me stunned. Yes, it may not be a problem for some people, specially newcomers to WP7, but that doesn't mean it's not there, or that you have to kill the messenger.
I've done peestandingup's test on my Optimus 7, and it follows my tiny movements perfectly. The 800/900 comparison is even more revealing: the 800 follows the finger, the 900 pursues it. Given the lacklustre commitment to WP7 shown by LG, I doubt my phone has got better internals than Nokia efforts, therefore I'm inclined to believe the lag is solvable via a firmware update.
My current contract ends in July. I know I should wait to WP8 phones, but I also know I'm an impatient man with weak willpower, so I'm considering the 900 (I want a 4,3" phone), but if this lag is the norm, the decision is already made, and not by me. Like dead pixels, I know this would annoy the **** out of me, not just for Dodonpachi, but for any future game or app which requires precise movement.
If you don't notice any lag or you don't think it's a biggie, then I'm glad for you, but please respect any contrary opinion. The last thing this fine community needs is a grow in fanboyism running alongside WP7 grow.
Peace & respect.

Thanks ^. And I don't understand it either. As far as I can tell, people know there's a lot riding on the success of this phone & want it to succeed so badly that they're willing to downplay or look over some of its glaring faults.
Yes, every device has its issues. But these are kinda big IMO & clearly effect it's usability. And you can bet if my Titan or Focus had any issues like this that I'd be talking about them too. And the iPhone as well for that matter.
And I agree. Fanboys need not apply. If you don't want to talk about issues & would rather just ignore them, then that's fine & your choice. But don't berate the ones who do. We all want the phone/platform to succeed.

I'm coming from the Arrive and the screen on the 900 is definitely less responsive. I can make a fast movement with my finger and move it 1-1.5 cm before the screen starts to move. This is most definitely NOT normal and is not what I have come to expect from a modern, flagship smartphone. It's really disappointing, actually.

I am coming from the Omnia 7 and while the screen doesn't scroll quite as fast. It also always loads up the live tiles. On my Omnia 7 it would scroll so fast that I would just have blank live tiles.
For me this doesn't affect usability at all. Still takes the same number of swipes to get to the bottom of my start screen.
