Above the screen it has the ear piece speaker, the light and proximity sensor and the secondary camera. Below the screen we can see the touch sensitive controls: back, home and search. On the left side of the phone we have nothing to see but on the right side we have the dedicated camera button, the volume rocker keys and the power button.  On the top the phone has a 3.5mm jack, a microUSB slot, the microSIM slot and a secondary microphone for active noise cancellation.

The Lumia 900 has an 8MP camera sensor with Carl Zeiss optics, autofocus and a dual-LED flash. Video recording is made at 720p and 30 fps and you have video stabilization when shooting. Other features that the camera has are image effect, white balance, contrast, saturation, ISO, sharpness and more. I don’t need to say that the pictures quality is very good because you can imagine what the camera can do with the Carl Zeiss optics. The secondary camera has 1MP VGA resolution and shoots at 15 fps.

The display has 4.3 inches and supports a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels and a pixel density of 217ppi.the viewing angles are very good and the displayed colors are very colorful. It supports multitouch and it is protected by a Gorilla Glass screen and it has the Nokia ClearBlack Display technology. The combination between AMOLED and Windows Phone 7 OS is the perfect and the Lumia 900 is one of those combinations.

The Windows Phone 7.5 Mango powers the Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8055 chipset. On the chipset there are based the 1.4 GHz Scorpion processor and the Adreno 205 GPU. All these are helped by 512 Mb of RAM memory. The internal storage has 16 GB and unfortunately it can’t be expanded. The phone has accelerometer, gyro, compass, proximity and light sensors.

At connectivity it has a tremendous 42 Mbps HSDPA speed and on HSUPA it has 5.76 Mbps. Bluetooth is v2.1 with A2DP + EDR, microUSB slot is v2.0 and Wi-Fi has b/g/n standards. The browser supports HTML5 and works flawlessly.

The battery life is not so good although it has a capacity of 1830 mAh. It last for 7 hours in talk time and has only 300 hours standby time. With a normal usage it can pass the one day limit.

If you like the Nokia Lumia 900 has a look on for good deals with it.
