It's actually a fast running fun phone. And those "Smoked by WP7" commercials, they're TRUE!!!

I'd still rather have a Galaxy Note.

OK, music playback. The NL900 has great sq, but would really benefit from an EQ. I only used my AKG cans with it so far, and it's also slightly low in the volume area. When I go out and use some IEM's it'll most likely be more than sufficient. But MAN,...give me a damn EQ!!!

Check out Pocketnow's comparison between the Galaxy Nexus and the Lumia 900. I can't wait to see how WP8 shapes up as Microsoft optimizes it for multicore and better specs.

Interesting... I guess you really pay in terms of battery life and draw rates for the 720p high res screen.

It definitely seems to be lower in terms of volume. While I was trying it out at a corp store I had it on 15 on a couple of tracks, then I tried the same tracks on the Titan II. the Titan II was noticeably louder than the Nokia. But it does sound good.

I had the volume up to 25, since I use mp3gain to level all my tracks.

Lumia 900 versus nails:
Because screw iPhones, that's why.

I don't want to belittle the 900 but isn't it gorilla glass like the other 50 gizelion phones out and any phone with that glass should have similar results? It's nice to see the durability of the phones go up as they're nothing worse than having your $600 smartphone screen shattering into a million pieces from dropping it.

Funny you mention using gorilla glass for cars as it was originally developed in the 60's for sport cars.
