Hopefully this will get to you. Your team deserves credit for producing an
excellent product in the newest version of Windows Phone. Yes, I am writing from
my MacBook Pro. And I have been a fairly loyal Apple customer over the years.
However, I recently bought a Nokia Lumia 900 and intend on keeping it. For full
disclosure, I was sure to make sure it could be returned after a dismal
experience with an Android phone.
My reasons for switching are:
1. Call quality. I actually use my phone as a phone. That
concept seems to get lost in many product reviews. One of my employees actually
thanked me for getting rid of my iPhone as it was so much easier to hear me. I
apologize for the tedium but it means a great deal to me and my
2. Simplicity. My family owns five vehicles, including two
Fords with Sync. The 4S didn’t support all functions in any of them. My Nokia
900 was flawless out of the box. It was refreshing to have something that just
worked. I cannot afford to have my primary means of communication be a science
3. No junk software. Speaking of science experiments, I also
tried a Motorola Razr. Software that cannot be deleted and restarts itself? A
company with questionable privacy rules. Software that terrified my poor
in-laws? I guess if you like spending your day tinkering with your phone, it’s
pretty cool. Maybe it beats playing with your Star Wars dolls?
4. Simplicity again. Everything after set up has been painless
as well. Adding apps, setting up email accounts, etc. I thought the iPhone was
good. Your set up was actually smoother and took less time. Same for Wi-Fi,
in-car Bluetooth, etc.
5. Speed. The 900 doesn’t seem to lag the way the iPhone did
at times. Everything seems to execute quickly. That I don’t think about it is
probably the best compliment.
6. Live Tiles. It’s a minor thing but the Metro tiles are
pretty cool. I just like the look.
Are any of you Lumia 900 users – past Apple Fanboys? Would love to hear from you!
