    I went to the AT&T store pretty set with getting the titan II, but after messing with the phones and saying i wanted a windows phone and was ready to upgrade I was ambushed by 3 sales reps. They all started selling up the Lumia 900, even said the camera was better on the lumia, which I do not agree with. I was ultimately swayed by the price tag, the free price tag after the nokia rebate (which was particularly amazing how it was automatically applied).

    I used my upgrade to get a great phone for free, so come october when I want a windows 8 phone I wont feel so bad buying it off contract if it is everything I ever wanted. Still feel like i'm missing out on the screen size and camera of the titan II, which also felt lighter for some reason.

    The Titan II is actually lighter.

    I stopped by the at&t store today and was so impressed with the Titan 2. It's lighter than both the 900 and T1. It felt good in hand and I personally liked the screen better.

    If I can get rid of my Titan 1 I'll definitely go for the T2.

    I'm sure the Titan II is great but I can't see where the extra $200 of value is (or $100 once the $99 refund thing is over)

    16mp camera is completely unnecessary for my purposes. 16mp? Really? The optics are all that matter, maybe the Titan II has better optics, I have no idea, but I'm very happy with the pics my L900 takes. The bigger screen is great as long as it doesn't come at the cost of battery life, especially since the Titan managed to get it in without making the phone bigger. But really we're all stuck at 800x480 until Apollo anyway so what good is a 4.7" screen unless you want even bigger pixels. LOL

    I don't think you'll regret the Lumia at all. Nokia is the only phone manufacturer out there who is backing WP7 110%. Just wait until you see what Nokia is going to have for you by the time you have another upgrade available. :D

    Ha, yes. I grew up on ceviche and the Golden Kola while in Peru. It's delicious yet an acquired taste for sure lol.

    When it came time to create an Xbox gamertag I ended up with Inka Cola.

    Sorry high jacking the thread! Back on topic now. :D

    The Titan II also has a better Camera - beyond the Megapixels - than the Lumia 900.

    Titan II also has better sound because of the SRS enhancements. Lumia doesn't have this I don't think.

    Yea after testing both in store it was very easy to see the titan II has a better camera overall, but the Lumia camera is no slouch so I think I will be fine. I might return it for the white version though and give up the rebate anyway ha.

    The titan was easier to hold also in my opinion due to the rubber finish they put on it, but that is easily fixed with an invisishield on the lumia, they even had one at the store and offered it but i said the phone doesn't need a case.

    Rereading what i wrote, the titan sounds like the better phone, the lumia screen is far sharper tho! WP is all about colors and contrast and the clear black makes the nokia blue shine! Also the speaker phone is terrific!

    Don't forget the Nokia software, Drive, Transit, Maps etc.

    You shouldn't buy a phone based on which manufacturer is best supporting the platform ... but ... the chances of any updates for the Titan II are a lot lower than the 900.

    Both are very good devices.
    Titan II has significantly better camera with great features, larger screen, Capactive buttons always lit up, more refined (b/c sequel of already released device)
    Nokia has better apps (Nokia vs HTC apps), better screen, cheaper price, incredible support, better battery life.

    Both have really good sound quality and music experience.
    Both have great designs, about the same size.
    Both have good 720p video recording quality

    I can't speak for call quality for Titan II but Lumia 900's is very loud, clear.

    Did you pay any taxes on your purchase? I had to pay $37 here in California even though the phone will be free.

    I think HTC is the most likely to step up with Nokia-league support to Windows Phone, we'll see how they do with Apollo. If they roll out as interesting a design as the ONE-series, and push it hard in terms of marketing, carrier-support, and custom apps (comparable to the ones Nokia is pushing), I'll consider them for my Apollo device.

    My Titan's call quality and antennae strength is pretty atrocious. I don't know if they fixed it with the Titan II.

    Titan's speakerphone is horrible. I could hear okay, but they the person on the other line always mentions the terrible call quality.

    Where applicable, by law, you're supposed to pay taxes on the full price (not the subsidized) of the phone, which is $450.

    Really? I never heard of such a thing. Sounds like robbery to me.

    It is robbery, and it's been that way for while, at least since the 90's that I know of, when I sold phones at the Goodguys. It's not limited to Cali and cellphones either. Other things like airline tickets sold at discounted rates can be taxed at full retail.

    Sorry you feel that way but you still have a 30 day window to exchange if you want. I've wanted a quality Nokia handset (with an OS I could stand) for YEARS now so I'm nerdy satisfied

    My girlfriend got a Titan II from the Smoked By Windows Phone deal (quite a surprise when they brought it out instead of the Titan I) . My roommate has the cyan Lumia 900. After playing with both phones, a few things are pretty clear to me:

    -The Titan II has a much better camera. Whether you think 16MP is unnecessary or not, it takes really nice pictures with a high level of detail.

    -The Lumia 900 has the better screen. 4.3" really is the sweet spot and the tiles don't looked as "stretched." Fantastic color and vibrancy compared to the Titan II.

    -I love the design/style of the Lumia 900, but I think the Titan II feels much better in hand. The back is almost rubbery (a lot different than the Titan I) and gives a better grip/feel.

    -Both phones are quick. Didn't notice any difference loading apps. Playing games is a bit easier on the Titan II from a "control" standpoint, but the colors look nicer on the Lumia 900.

    A few other notes:

    -It sometimes feels like there's a slight delay when you first begin typing on the keyboard of the Titan II. Not sure why. Haven't really messed with the Lumia 900 keyboard very much to notice.

    -"Lagging" scroll speed of the Lumia 900 is greatly exaggerated.

    -Nokia Drive is pretty awesome according to my roommate. Nokia ESPN is meh. Still a better suite of apps than HTC offers.

    My personal device is a Trophy since I'm with VZW and I can say that I would love to have either of these devices. Unrelated, but my other roommate scored a Trophy from SBWP as did a coworker. Roommate loves the Trophy compared to his Droid Incredible, he'll probably be buying the Apollo WP for VZW if it ever comes out. The coworker seems to like his device coming from a Blackberry Tour, but still has some issues figuring out how to use it. Guess it's a big adjustment.

    They "fixed" the issue by changing the back covering from aluminum to plastic.
