The unibody polycarb constructions makes the phone feel absolutely fantastic in your hands.

B/c how scratch resistant the phone is, you almost never get any scratches on the front or back of the phone. Except, because the camera silver strip sticks out, it will get scratched if you put it down bottom side down. I find it to prevent scratches you have to put the phone down on its gorilla glass.

I figured it out. You have go go into people settings and down where your accounts are listed, if you tap and hold Facebook account, it give you the option to sync and it adds the new contacts thumb.gif

Happy owner, right here! Picked mine up (black body) on Monday evening and I'm just loving this thing. The screen is gorgeous! The response is always fluid and smooth. Never laggy. Nothing that I've noticed yet anyway. Maybe if I load it up but I'm kind of a minimalist so I doubt I will. Going from a BB non-touch 9700 I am really enjoying the touch interface and I was really expecting not to at all. Texting has been very easy when I thought it would be a challenge. This is my first touchscreen phone, btw. I've played with some before and it was always a PITA but not here for whatever reason. Can't explain why. Being a previous Zune mp3 player user may give me a leg up in understanding the interface and all that...the overall experience helps I think.

WRT battery life.... Well...it most certainly isn't like my BB. Looks like I can get one solid day with this as long as I'm not over working it. Usually, I would only use my phone for a handful of emails and texts in an average day. Since I've had this, I've been working it overtime. Screen is on a lot. Constantly flipping around doing things. Texting friends and stuff. Surfing the marketplace. Tried some games. Just contantly using it with everything turned on except for bluetooth. Using it like this barely lasted a full day but really, I kind of expected that. It's also unrealistic because I don't usually use my phone that way. I expect decent battery life with typical use. I will update about this in the coming week or so. Right now, I'm still into it and like playing around with it. biggrin.gif

The only negative I've noticed is that the alert vibrations make some strange rattle noise. I've read about other people having the same issue, I might try to exchange this 900 for a non-rattley one

No rattles detected from mine.

So far, completely solid.

I really don't like windows phone as after a year with one I got exhausted from lack of customization.

What sort of customization are you wanting to do? Android is generally the platform for people who want something they can completely tweak. Did you decide that later on or was it your goal to try and customize your Windows phone in the first place?

I think it's because its a well designed, well executed Windows phone. I wouldn't expect a diehard Android fan to be impressed with the 900 but I don't think Nokia would either. I'm not into Apple or Android, bored with BB and this caught my eye. I'm not sure I'd be as happy with either competing OS phones.

Definitely. The build quality was a big selling point for me. It feels solid and well built.

I'm not talking about anything but the design of the hardware, I think WP7 looks excellent and the lack of higher end specs keeps me away from it as much as I'd like to try it out. The Lumia 900, however, is not very good looking and I would go as far to say that my nexus is much ore pleasing to my eye.

If you say so. Many disagrees, but it's all subjective. I'm not a huge fan of it's looks either. But it feels better than anything I've held, including the nexus you mentioned.

I'm honestly curious, what are these people doing who keep saying they want higher specs? Are you benchmarking or running super intensive programs on your phone? I ask because I use my phone for, well, a phone. I also surf the web and write emails but I have yet to have ANY phone that didn't work as a phone...
