So how does it stand up to the iPhone, the number one smartphone on the planet? Keep reading to find out.
We were really disappointed with the Lumia 900's screen. While Nokia added some fancy tech to make it easier to view in direct sunlight, the resolution is just plain bad compared to other premium smartphones out there.
The iPhone's resolution is much, much better than the Lumia 900's. Here's the breakdown:
The iPhone has a 960x640 resolution on its 3.5-inch screen. The Lumia 900 has a 800x480 pixel resolution on a 4.3-inch screen. That means the Lumia has fewer pixels than the iPhone spread over a larger area. The result is pixelated text and images. Not good.

We were incredibly impressed with the Lumia 900's design when we first played with it at the Consumer Electronics Show this year. It's simply gorgeous, probably the most unique smartphone design we've seen in years.
After two years, we're getting a bit bored with the look and feel of the iPhone. It's refreshing to see Nokia pull off something new.

Nokia made a big fuss about the Lumia 900's camera. But in our testing, images didn't turn out so great. Although the Lumia's camera shoots at 8 MP, the colors aren't as true and clear as the iPhone 4S' camera.
To make things worse, the Lumia 900 only shoots 720p HD video, whereas the iPhone 4S can shoot full 1080p HD video.
