Introduction

It took the Nokia Lumia 900 just a few days to top the US sales charts and see delighted handshakes quickly turn into group hugs, as Nokia, Microsoft and AT&T, which carries it exclusively stateside, were busy celebrating the flagship’s performance in recent months.

The Lumia 900 has finally made the trip across the pond but it’s not the return home it must’ve dreamed of. Not quite the triumphant welcome from thousands flocking to retail outlets and carriers. Yes, there’s a big question mark hanging over the global version of the Nokia Lumia 900. The news that Windows Phone 8 is out of reach has taken the shine off its appeal. But its character is intact – and the Lumia 900 has enough of that to spare.

A big, quality screen, fluid and stylish OS and premium build are all sprinkled with Nokia’s magic in a package that’s made to impress. We’ve been there already – and we don’t mean the review we have of the Lumia 900 for AT&T. After all, it’s a Lumia 800 all over again, only the screen got bigger. And yet, we are delighted to meet this smartphone again – and we’ll give it that, it looks stunning in white.

You’ll also be happy to know that this time around we’re putting the Lumia 900 to all our usual tests. AT&T’s Lumia 900 was reviewed away from the office but this one will not simply walk in and out of our labs without getting a taste of our torture routine.
