    If you’re looking for a $100, high-end smartphone, or are a Windows Phone fan who has been waiting for better hardware, the Lumia 900 is worth considering. But the phone had just too many drawbacks in my tests to best its chief competitors.

    With a stunning display, fast data speeds, and a versatile camera, the Lumia 900 has what it takes to compete with the iPhone and with Android handsets — if Microsoft and AT&T can win over customers.

    Who would have thought that a Windows Phone — and one from Nokia, no less — would be one of the best alternatives to Apple’s iPhone that we’ve ever seen. And at $100, it’s a downright steal.

    SlashGear
    The Nokia Lumia 900 is without a doubt one of the best Windows phones we’ve ever tested up to this point. Those already committed to Android, iOS or Blackberry are unlikely to be swayed, but new smartphone buyers should seriously consider the phone and not just because of its looks or software.

    It has a striking design, beautiful display, solid camera, fast data speeds, and a very clean and easy-to-use operating system. ... However, Windows Phone and its application ecosystem still lag behind Apple's iPhone and the many Android phones.

    The Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T is a powerful, easy-to-use Windows Phone. It's great, as long as you don't need Words With Friends or some other apps you might find on an iPhone or an Android phone.

    The Nokia Lumia 900's unique design and high-end features make Windows Phone look fantastic, and the price is extremely fair. Despite some flaws, this is my favorite Windows Phone yet.

    Although the Lumia 800 was a better realization of the Nokia-Microsoft alliance, the Lumia 900 comes close to the mark with its striking design, and it brings some of its own perks such as a front-facing camera, LTE support, and a low price with a two-year AT&T contract.

    GigaOM
    With the Lumia 900, Nokia has proven — at least to me — that it can bring its design chops and hardware experience to compete against the iPhone and Android devices. The phone also illustrates that Windows Phone is a very competent operating system with a fast-growing ecosystem.
