Nokia Lumia 900 a top buy from Consumer Reports

When it comes to Windows Phone devices, the Lumia 900 is king. Our own Marin Perez gave the device an overall score of 8 out of 10 when he reviewed the Lumia 900 back in April, and those of us fortunate enough to have gotten our hands on the device came away very impressed.

Nokia has managed to impress more than just us with its flagship Lumia Windows Phone device, however. In addition to Siri thinking it’s the best thing since sliced bread, the Lumia 900 has earned a top mark from the trusted and independent Consumer Reports, which just billed the Lumia 900 as the best Windows Phone device they’ve ever tested. The following paragraph made up Consumer Reports smartphone recommendation in their “Top 7 Electronics Gifts for Dads and Grads” feature

“The Nokia Lumia 900, which runs on AT&T’s high-speed 4G LTE network as well as its HSPA+ 4G network, is the best Windows phone we’ve tried so far. It also has some stunning features: a 4.3-inch AMOLED display and an 8-megapixel camera with a wide-angle (28mm), large-aperture (F2.2) Carl Zeiss optics, for starters. It’s $100 with a two-year contract.” Consumer Reports

I’ve been carrying the Lumia 900 as my secondary device for a few weeks now, and despite several qualms I have with Windows Phone as a platform, I can see why Consumer Reports is smitten with the Lumia 900. The Lumia 900 brings a marked difference from the slew of phones it finds itself up against, especially with the cyan finish, and the 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics takes pretty awesome pictures. Also, it doubles as a freakin’ hammer.

If you’re in the market for a Windows Phone device, and aren’t content holding off for the Windows Phone 8 “Apollo” upgrade set to land later this year, you should probably take Consumer Reports’ recommendation and purchase the $100 Lumia 900 for yourself.

      If you already know I used to work at Nokia, then you should also already know that I don’t like the current state of Windows Phone.

        Thats why you are a former employee? Not able to think? Frustrated? If you knew how a UI should be designed then you would have argued different about WP7.
