When the Nokia Lumia 900 4G was launched by AT&T back in April, the handset instantly became a hit and snagged the first and third spots in the bestsellers list of an AT&T authorized reseller. This was entirely unexpected given the fact that the handset was released on a Sunday that also fell on a National Holiday (Easter Sunday), a move unheard of in the smartphone competition. This could only mean that the Nokia Lumia 900 4G is really that good and could even be considered as the best handset in the Windows Phone ecosystem as of the moment.
Sad to say, despite of the seeming popularity of the handset, the Nokia Lumia 900 4G still had it shares of bugs and issues just like any other smartphone. In the case of the handset, it was plagued at first by Wi-Fi connectivity issues. Not only that, the handset also had issues with its display having a purple tint whenever its brightness level is set to low. Nokia for its part already released software updates to get these issues take care of.
After the said software updates, there were no more reports of the purple tint on the handset’s display. However, we still the odd complaint about Wi-Fi issues on the handset even after the update has been applied. Several users reported that they are able to connect to Wi-Fi with no issues but when their Nokia Lumia 900 4G handsets go to sleep, that’s when the issues come up. One user said that although the handset is still connected to the Wi-Fi hotspot, he can’t seem to connect to the web and get online.
Other users on the other hand reported that they started experiencing issues with their Nokia Lumia 900 4G handsets AFTER they applied the latest update rolled out a couple of weeks ago. They mentioned however that the issues were intermittent and do not happen all the time but it still is very annoying to have these data issues with the handset.
Although not as widespread as expected, this Wi-Fi issue with the Nokia Lumia 900 4G is still an irritating problem to have on a handset that is considered by many as the best Windows Phone device as of the moment. Hopefully, Microsoft and Nokia can take a closer look at this and work together in getting this Wi-Fi issue with the Nokia Lumia 900 4G sorted out completely.
As for the Nokia Lumia 900 4G, the handset is still very impressive despite the bugs plaguing It. The circuitry of the handset is built around its QualComm APQ8055 SnapDragon chipset and its smooth and snappy performance is brought about by its 1.4 GHz Scoprion processor and 512 MB of RAM. The storage space of the handset comes up to 16GB while its ClearBlack Display-powered 4.3-inch AMOLED panel has a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. the camera department of the Nokia Lumia 900 4G is just as impressive with its main 8MP shooter at its back panel and a front-facing 1.3MP video chat camera.
