Nokia Lumia 900 unboxing (Photo Heavy)

The Nokia Lumia 900 has landed and what a great surprise it is too. This 4.3-inch smartphone is slimmer, lighter and more striking than we thought it would be, making it an impressive big-screen alternative to the Nokia Lumia 800. Check out our Nokia Lumia 900 unboxing review for the full details.

The Nokia Lumia 900 is the new flagship model in the Lumia Windows Phone range and is a powerhouse of modern mobile computing. In the box you’ll find everything you need to bring your new smartphone to life. On the top tray there is the Nokia Lumia 900 itself, along with a neat little key for popping open the MicroSIM tray.

Nokia Lumia 900: Why it’s the best gaming smartphone

Beneath the phone you’ll find a sleeve holding all the paperwork and on the bottom tray the accessories that come with the Nokia Lumia 900. These consist of a set of decent headphones, a USB charger for hooking up to your PC that can also be plugged into the neat adapter so you can get a mains power charge.

In terms of design you’ll find that it follows the same lines as the Nokia Lumia 800 but there have been a few design tweaks. The buttons on the right-hand side seem a little more pronounced and Nokia has done away with the flip-top lid for the USB connector. Even the MicroSIM port has been updated for the better.

The 4.3-inch screen has a 24-bit colour depth and 800 x 480-pixel resolution so images look big, bright and above all bold. The screen may be big but we were amazed at how slim and light the Nokia Lumia 900 felt in the hand. Weighing 160g and measuring 127.8 x 68.5 x 11.5mm, it’s a good size in the hand.

The screen is flat, unlike the curved panel of the Nokia Lumia 800, but is still an AMOLED display that uses Gorilla Glass to make it as tough as possible – we’ve already accidentally dropped the Nokia Lumia 900 onto its face from a height of four foot and there isn’t a single mark to show that it happened!

You’ll also find that Nokia is using its own ClearBlack technology on the Nokia Lumia 900, which is a neat two-tier filter screen that means you can use it out doors and still read the screen, something you won’t find on lesser smartphones on the market.

The Windows Phone operating system looks good on this size of screen and being so easy to navigate and use you’ll be set up and running in minutes. There is a great deal of talk about quad-core processors in modern smartphones but the truth is, the Nokia Lumia 900 is fast enough with it’s single-core 1.4GHz CPU. The Windows Phone OS is highly streamlined to be super-quick as is.

The Nokia Lumia 900 is available for as little as £20.50 a month at the moment, making it an amazing phone at a great price.
