    Should I break up with my iPhone for Nokia's Lumia 900? | Signal Strength - CNET News

    Where to start in no particular order...BlackBerry 8800, 9530, 9550, 9650, 9930. Palm Pre2 (twice). HTC ThunderBolt, Motorola Droid X, RAZR. HTC Trophy. iPhone 4 and 4S (current).

    I really liked WP7 on the Trophy, but the failing was more hardware related, battery life. I miss LTE from the ThunderBolt and Sense, I miss BB quality email and messaging and I really miss the quality notifications of webOS...sigh...

    If Verizon gets some high end WP7 gear this year (with 32GB+ of memory), I will definitely look at picking one up. I liked the overall performance of WP7, some issues I had were notifications, and the ultra-reliance on the cloud for its integration took some getting used to. The user experience is a wholesale departure from other platforms, but that's part of its appeal I think.

    With AT&T's pricing of the Lumia at $99, that's going to offer quite an incentive to people who are wondering about spending $199, $249, $299, $399 for an Android or iOS device. It's a good recipe.

    My problem with the price is that some people equate aower price with a "lesser" device. Which the Nokia Lumia 900 is NOT.

    A lot of people have positive memories with Nokia devices. If anything the Lumia 900 shows you how much overpriced other phones are. My wife is not a techie by any means but she picked up my phone after learning it was a Nokia device and commented how cool it was.

    I never thought of that. My first three phones were Nokias, and I loved them. I even spent six months with the E71-2 between my BlackBerry Curve and Bold. Their build quality is second to none! If it wasn't for the Lumia series, I might have tried the N8. I'm now determined to purchase an international version of the Lumia 900 in cyan.

    No wonder you guys have no games...

    That gpu is old as **** already. I don't expect everything to have dual core, etc.. but cmon now. A flagship at that price shouldn't be using stuff that outdated.
    Some of us don't care a crap about games.

    There are a lot of games on Xbox live. Also the games just fine on the Nokia lumia. It's just loads longer. Big deal. It's not gonna freeze or anything

    I've left webOS (well not quite since I still own a phone and tablet sporting it) for Windows Phone. Before that I had an iPhone 3GS. I also tested Android on somebody's phone.

    Windows Phone, to say the least, is amazing even though not entirely mature. I still love webOS for a lot of things, but WP is smooth (like butter smooth), well thought and has -well- more apps than webOS :P

    I definitely don't regret having bought the Lumia 800. The only thing I kinda regret is that my HP Veer has a really good form factor because it fitted on my palm perfectly and was easy to carry. Although the Lumia is easier to read on and with a belt pouch I'll be able to sport it anyway.

    I have to say, my experience using Android on a Samsung Galaxy was aweful: with lags, bad and ugly UI and bad reception !

    I'm glad WP seems to push through the market one way or another, because it is a solid alternative to the "others".

    This mentality is so absurd. The new craze with playing "high end" games on your phone is silly to me. I am not sating this to defend this device. I'm actually a huge gamer and own every console since Virtual Boy.

    I cannot fathom playing games on a touch screen only device. The control is so limited that you are relegated to the same type of experiences. Not only that, but the battery life is completely hosed on any device when playing games. If you think I am willing to sacrifice my only means of communication while I'm on the go to play a game of "Shadowgun" or "Infinity Blade" you have to be smoking something quite strong.

    I would rather carry my 3DS or Vita and get a true gaming experience. This argument has been she so many times on so many forums and it always comes down to the same thing. If you are a gamer than you will never look at your phone to satisfy that urge.

    The mentality of carrying around four different devices is more absurd for me..

    I love playing games on my phone and obviously so do many others.

    Enjoy paying a huge premium for a three year old CPU/gpu..

    If you don't think that is part of the reason wp7 is failing so hard then I dunno what to tell you.

    more people have played and have paid for Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, and etc than ANY graphic intensive game EVER MADE!!!

    so your argument is mute as people don't value those types of games as much as you might think

    Go look at the numbers for shadowgun, etc

    Then try to tell me there isn't a market for it.

    Wp7 has the worst app store I've ever seen..

    Honestly I think most people play games on their ipad. The 3.5 screen a little too small. Most hardcore gamers are console or pc, not phone.

    This marketplace reminds me of the start of the app store and now Google play store. It will get better. But a game argument in my opinion is a pretty weak one.

    Not checkmate at all..

    There is a huge market for graphically intensive games as well, and on a phone in that price range you should get specs that can keep up.

    I would say checkmate actually since the marketshare numbers alone demonstrate that a smooth ui with no substance is obviously not enough..

    Not really most people I know who left left because of a lack of apps and games.

    I'm one of them..

    Also it's been around two years now, time for the excuses to stop.

    Plus I have a 4.5 inch screen actually, great for games

    Nintendo earns more revenue from one Pokemon release than all the games in the app store combined. So, what's your point?

    like it or not, games like Angry Birds sells platforms..just look at the numbers...not having Angry Birds would hurt allot more than those graphic games that can't even hold a candle to a ps vita

    I am sorry but marketshare numbers are not co-related to what high intensive games you have on your device.

    I would argue marketing, word of mouth, peer pressure, look of device, etc rank much higher in mindshare than if it has some leet game on it.
