-- quite more for their fox -- take one of the biggest phone launches of the year so far is the Nokia leukemia 900 running Windows Phone.
I've been testing it for a little over a week now.
And -- give -- my.
First the good stuff I really love how this phone feels it's beautifully designed on this blue chassis you can choose from black.
And coming soon white it's really solid in the hand and even though it's four point three inches.
I didn't really notice the size of it in my pocket.
Another great feature it's 99 dollars that's kinda hard to -- for a limited time only.
The software is also quite great.
Windows Phone has come a long way and it's a pleasure to use easy to navigate easy to learn.
Easy to find the apps that you want when you want them they're still too few apps though.
Running on the platform but Microsoft is catching up quickly but there's still -- few holes that I usually rely on.
And even though this phone only has a single core processor -- found it to be really fast switching between applications launching applications playing video.
And generally just navigating through the operating system was quite.
All right are you ready for the bad there quite a few things I didn't like about this fall.
Let's start with the screen.
My first reaction to the screen was that it looks over saturated the colors are bright and not enough pleasant Easter -- -- -- oranges -- to orange.
Texts look Fuzzy overall the -- led screen does not look good just look how Fuzzy this text looks.
The leukemia 900 on the laughed.
Compared to the iphone's retina display.
Also not a fan of the size.
I know some people think bigger is better when it comes to mobile devices but I'm used to my iPhone which I think is perfectly sized for one or two handed usage.
Being able to stretch my thumb across the screen and -- an application and not worry that I won't be able to do it.
The Mumia is four point three inches it's just that much bigger that it doesn't serve the way I type.
And very often with one thumb and having to put the phone down or use my other hand to get to a part of an application that I can't reach.
Internet Explorer which is the mobile web browsing software on the phone is plain terrible it looks bad.
Text looks horrible.
And quite frankly there were a number of times loading webpages never loaded just hung and sat there static.
For up to 23 minutes and sometimes never loaded at all.
And this is on LTE right now still.
900 comes with an eight megapixel camera with -- -- lands on the back it takes good enough photos.
But I shot a series of photos walking around the neighborhood side by side with the iPhone four -- And the photos on the -- media simply didn't look as good for instance -- are few photos side by side.
You can hear -- -- at the train station and also some random -- that I shot.
So if Nokia and Microsoft really wanna compete with the likes of apple and Google they need -- something really amazing in the phone space to compete sadly.
The -- and 900 is not that device.
And Clayton Morris -- fox technique you can always find me on Twitter at Clayton Morris if he had any more questions about the phone or anything else -- next time.
