Released this month only, Nokia Lumia 900 is undoubtedly a great Windows Phone 7.5(Mango). But, the question is if its hardware is worthwhile to compete with competitive phones like Apple iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy Nexus? Here’s a brief view of the hardware of Lumia 900.
The specifications of Lumia 900 include 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 Processor, 512MB RAM, flash storage of 16GB, AMOLED display of 4.3” (resolution of 800 x 480), 802.11 b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a front-facing camera of 1MP.
Here are a few specifications of the hardware of Lumia 900:
⇒ Single-piece polycarbonate case just like Lumia 800
⇒ Slightly bigger and heavier than its competitive phones, Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S
⇒ Opening of the phone is a little tricky, though not so difficult
⇒ Resolution and pixel density of the display of the phone is lower than its competitive devices. This, in no way, means that the display isn’t good.
⇒ Single-core processor
⇒ With 16GB, the storage space is less than its competitive phones.
⇒ Battery life is less than its competition. Nokia claims that it has a 7-hour battery backup, whereas Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S have a battery life of 12 hours and 8 hours, respectively.
⇒ The battery size of Lumia 900 is unusual, unlike previous Nokia sealed batteries. That is why it cannot even be put in devices like N9 and Lumia 800.
Overall, Lumia 900 is a great Windows Phone and stands at par with its competitive devices.
