    First thing that I noticed is the build quality isn't as good as the lumia 800. The screen is not bubbled its flat and its covered by a separate piece of plastic. It is heavy but feels really good. I like the weight, makes it feel substantial. The screen is extremely clear and crisp.

    Ack! How can this be? Can you compare it to the Lumia 710's build quality?

    Ive never held a lumia 710. Don't get me wrong its built beautifully, its just the 800's screen glides over the body and is seamless. The 900 has a lip.

    I got the black one and love the screen more than anything else. I owned the 800 and really wanted at least a 4 inch screen. The 800 was already almost perfect for me. This one is just outstanding. I love it!

    That's great to hear. I'm torn between the two and I'm not sure which way I'll go. Would you mind listing. Few of the pros and cons of each? It'll have to be an unlocked international version as I don't get AT&T's LTE where I live or go to school. I don't want a battery drain like that. Speaking of batteries, how's the battery life?

    Ive had it for two hours so I can't comment on the battery. For me the cons of the 900 are that there seems to be a lot of wasted space. The screen is a small portion of the front, and the phone is big enough to house a 4.6 plus screen. Its thick and heavy that could put of some people. Some pros is that it doesn't have the door covering the usb port. On my 800 the door wore out quickly and feels flimsy. Both cameras are awesome and take very clear pictures. The speaker on the 900 is better. I still like the size, feel, and build of the 800 better. It doesn't have a front camera and thats weird for the price. I like both but I would rather have the larger screen and no moving parts.

    How is the lag issue? I have read about lag from other posts and wondered if it could be due to open background apps. Any lag with multiple apps open in the background compared to only one app opened?

    I havent noticed any lag. Its just as smooth if not smoother than any other device I have ever used.

    That's good to know thanks. I wonder why some are having the lag issue. I think they may have multiple apps open.

    Its noticeable if you have handled a 800 if not it won't matter. It will collect a lot of dust.

    Every time I get a new phone I fully charge it and run it down with heavy use. I unplug at 7:00 A.M. and use them heavily. My iPhone 4 so far has been the best and got me to 9:00 PM, my iPhone 4s got me to 4:00 pm, my galaxy nexus to about 12:00, my nokia lumia 800 to about 3:00 pm, and so far its 7:30 and my lumia 900 is at 3% battery left. I would say that I am very satisfied with the battery life of this phone.

    Definitely have to do this. Draining to zero and recharging to full condition the battery

    How is the screen responsiveness?
    What would you grade the device overall?

    Ive been waiting for this phone for awhile now. So I am still in the awestruck phase. The screen is responsive as I could expect. I noticed static pops when using headphones and switching from one song to another. I also don't like the feel of the buzzer, it feels cheap. It also my be a tad to heavy for my taste but thats minor.

    I see you own a Lumia 800, if you had the choice to only keep one, which would it be? why?

    Sorry for all the questions, really curious about the 900, hopefully will be my first smart phones (for an upcoming Electrical Engineer)

    Lol thank you. The vibrate feels cheap? hm....probably hard to feel with the weight of the device.

    I didn't want to say vibrator. :) If I had to choose between the 800 and 900, I would take the 900 anyway. The battery outperforms, the screen is better, the screen is bigger, it has a from facing camera, and it supports LTE. The biggest negative is that it came in that crappy looking AT&T box. Opening the Lumia 800 was an emotional event.

    Hah! that's funny. Well that is good, quite a relief. How is the screen smoothness, fingerprints, and feel in the pocket (jeans)?

    The screen feels great but its collects fingerprints. I wouldn't say it was an issue, especially since I put a screen protector on it day one. It feels heavy in the pocket because its not a light phone. Its not bulky but it is heavy.

    Did the screen protector do the trick?
    Yeah that's what I figured, it really is quite heavy, I got a feel of it for a few minutes. I'm debating Focus S or Lumia 900 and they are on two ends of the spectrum when it comes to weight.

    The focus s is a nice phone and either way you go you should be happy. Its my own preference to pick the nokia over any phone in any market. I like the build, the look, the quality, and the one piece design.

    Yeah I'm looking at Nokia because of apps, LTE, and support even though I like the Focus S design and build more (lighter thinner friendlier)
