Microsoft and Nokia pegged their hopes of clawing back into the smartphone race on the Nokia Lumia 900, an attractive smartphone.Unfortunately, the reviews of the Lumia 900 say it’s a bad phone, and no one should buy it over an iPhone or an Android phone.
One reason the phone is a dud is Nokia used “mediocre hardware” to save money, according to Bill Detwiler at TechRepublic.
Detwiler cracked open the phone, and found a so-so screen, a weak processor, limited storage, and a bad battery.
He thinks the phone performs well, despite the limitations. But, when you’re willing to burn billions to try and get back in the smartphone race, skimping on your flagship phone seems foolish.
