    I'm swapping a Verizon galaxy nexus for a lumia, gonna go to at&t for a bit, should I be worried about this swap? Lol

    I did the switch to ATT two weeks ago and so far it has been ok. I gave up my Nexus and unlimited data for a Nokia because i know that I won't be disappointed. I could care less about what other people have to say about the Lumia, i love windows phone 7 and I got tired of waiting for Verizon to get their act together...

    Most reviews have been positive, except for the fact that there are "only" 70,000 apps in the Marketplace. WTF does that have to do with the Lumia 900. Nokia is probably responsible for all unrest in the world too.

    And the whole camera spec/performance thing. In three years I have taken maybe 500-700 photos with my phone and have printed exactly 2; 8 x 10 to be precise. And the both came out excellent. Almost all of the pictures I take, and view, on my phone look good, except when I shake. If you are a photographer, please spend your money on a "real" camera and stop *****ing. About 38 hours to go (or sooner) before I am holding my Lumia 900.

    I had preordered, then I cancelled it until I could see the phone. I went to see the phone today. I was greatly disappointed in the physical structure. Why on earth would a manufacturer put a glass screen at least 2 mm above the bezel? Poor design. I am glad I cancelled, I am out! I will look at the Titan 2 next week.
    The bezel looks exactly the same as my Titan, which looks pretty much like the Titan II. I've dropped my Titan on the road twice, and the screen is in perfect condition (the back cover has a couple of small dings on it). All I have to say is, the raised bezel helps the screen. If you're not getting a phone because of that, that's your choice, but I'd hardly call it a poor design.

    i pre ordered off contract and staying with it folks need to remember android when it started did not have all of the apps it has that took some years of growing i wish folks would stop it with the blogs comparing ecosystems windowsphone is newer and has to grow and doing a decent job this is their first offering of a flagship device from nokia i can only imagine whats to come next from nokia when its next flagship for att , tmob, sprint, and even suck face droid loving verizon nokia makes quality products beats the other twins any day and yes i said twins as htc, samsung, lg, huwawa, pantech, all look like bigger slabs of slab its crazy generic boring design nokia changes the game just like apple did.. if we stop letting blog geeks decide for us i would think more folks would be on wp7 by now but the topolosky's and turds crew try to influence the weak with oh 500,000 apps vs 70,000 i remember when android was at 70,000 give it a chance go game changer (rick flair voice) woooooooooooooooooo!!!!

    You can see one in person at any AT&T store now. If they are not on display, ask to see one as an employee or two will have them. Decide for yourself that way.

    I do agree the reviews are a bit misleading as Windows Phone 7 doesn't need the resources to be fast and responsive that other phone types do.

    Really the only negative review is from verge, even gizmodo said its a 'phone every person should own'
    Nokia Lumia 900 Review: This Might Save Windows Phone (Updated)
    Its not as much a negative review as it is not a glowing review. Its a 7, so thats not bad.

    Anyways, everyone's jumping on The Verge when indeed there's many other similar reviews.

    Review of Lumia 900: It's Big, It's Blue, It's Windows, but Can It Beat Rival Phones? - WSJ.com

    Nokia Lumia 900 Review - Business Insider

    So there's a lot of damage control coming from these forums when its prob not even necessary since most the reviews are positive. Yes, there's flaws & we all know that. Yes, the ecosystem could/should be better. But there's also great things about the phone.

    My advice is for no one to preorder & take some time with the phone once they get them in the stores to play with & make up your own mind on what's acceptable & what's not. No sense in paying money outta pocket & having to pay restocking fees just to get it a few days early if you think there's a chance you might return the phone.

    Massive difference in price of the phones they are comparing. Most of you will pay $99 or nothing for the 900 vs. $200+ for an iPhone, etc. It was no different than reviewers comparing the kindle fire to an $400 iPad.

    As a rule I don't usually pre order. I take tech blog reviews with a grain of salt. I usually wait for a device to come out and check the user reviews before deciding.

    I find the user reviews to be more indicative of real world use than those of the tech blog geeks who tend to be a bit anal over details the typical user doesn't concern themselves with.
