"One of the best smartphones ever. Sorry iPhone."4.5 starson by WindowsAllTheWay
Pros: -Large, amazing, beautiful display
-Has all the apps a person could need
-Plenty of storage
-FM Radio BUILT IN (Better than it sounds)
- Clean, slick interface that give iOS a run for it's money
-CHEEPER than an iPhone! <--
Cons: Importing and data set-up can be a little tricky, and the Zune software isn't very kind with initial set-up. But if you read a few online guide (Many Microsoft provided) and learn the Zune software, it's acctually easier to manage than iTunes.
Summary: I LOVE this phone! I currently have an iPad, and was acctually considering an iPhone for my upgrade. I'm so glad this phone came out just in time! For less than you cost of an iPhone, you get:UPDATE:
-Easy to use interface
-Fair enough storage (And FREE 25GB of SkyDrive storage)
-Quick, responsive and easy to use UI (Easier than iOS in my opinion)
-Very nice camera (Not as nice as iPhone 4S, but just fine for anamatuer who wants to just snap the occasional photo)
-FASTER data than iPhone (If you live in an area with LTE avalible, which I do)
-All the apps a human could possibly want. Sure there aren't as many as Apple, but who cares about 500,000 apps, since I'm only going to download 20 apps and a few games.
-Microsoft TellMe makes a fair Siri subsitute, but it's not an assisstiant, but more of a more advanced of iOS's Voice Control.
I believe those lines say pretty much everything about the Lumia 900. My only complaints are that initial set-up and data importion are a little more difficult than what it should be, and I don't like how you have to do a FACTORY RESET just to change your Windows Live account (Such as if you change certian log-in info), but those are one time problems, and after that everything is taken care of automatically, with greater skill than iTunes even, and much of the data is synced via the cloud (And it gives iCloud a run for its money).
So to be honest, if you're on a budget, but can't stand Andriod, or don't have enough for an iPhone, or just want something just as amazing as an iPhone, but for less, then DEFIENTLY go Nokia Lumia 900, it is perhaps the greatest smartphone I've ever had, and it's even managed to pull my away from my iPad.

I can't believe it, but I also forgot to add the AMAZING battery life on this phone, that, even on 4G LTE, managed to last as long as my 1st Gen iPad. Also I somehow forgot to mention how in my serveral days of owning it, even while pushing its processor to the max, never once has anything crashed, nor have I experienced lag of any kind. You can't ask for anything better!!! Also, it's size hits the sweet spot, because even though it's screen is much larger, if you hold them face-to-face, it doesn't have a much bigger foot print than the iPod Touch 4th gen (Tested it myself).
SO even with the much larger screen, and can still use it one handed, and its screen is acctually large and clear enough to read books on (Well, I still prefer my iPad, but it's great in situations where I couldn't bring my iPad with me).
