Lumia 900 or HTC Titan II. Just choose which ever you like better.

I went to look at the Lumia and the Titan yesterday, and I would definentaly choose the Lumia. It's screen is a bit smaller (not noticable) so the screen looks a lot better. The design looks cooler, and the weight is more substancial, which I like. Titan 2 is a great phone too though.

Are you really sure you would like WP though? I wanted it so bad and I bought a Samsung Focus. After about a year I hated it. You can add a wallpaper, can't customize tiles, theres no flash support, lots of good apps are missing, limited gaming power from a dual core, and average call quality. I Then upgraded to a Galaxy Note and I am loving Android.

The word on the street is the windows mobile os is dying, so its up to you....i like the windows os on phones, I think its great...but who knows how long support for it will be around. If I were u and dead bent on getting the windows phone, the 900 is pretty good from reviews.

Oh please... Microsoft has billions of dollars and will continue to support Windows Phone as long as they are around. Microsoft insider said many times that Windows Phone will be pushed to the mainstream, no matter what it costs.

I'd go with Lumia 900 due to exclusive Nokia apps, like maps, drive, etc.

What benifits would andriod have? iOS i don't want coz its 2 limiting.
I had a look at the HTC Titan II, and it looks nice as well, might give it some thought

I'm agreeing with the others, iOS is to limiting, (and too expensive imho for what you get) windows phones are fading,
I personally haven't used HTC much but i have heard great things, i personally love the droid system, i have the Motorola Atrix 2,
and i can overclock the dual core CPU in it to 1.09ghz I am an extremest, but droid is a great platform, and is fast, but this is just
one guys opinion, that 900 does look nice, but its hard to choose a windows phone.

Lumia is much better due to exclusive apps, build quality and it's cheaper.

As for Android

- You can spend months picking the best ROM instead of relying on Google's expertise
- Your life is always exciting as you have to keep rebooting the system and deal with fragmentation
- You can boast to your friends that your phone has a 4 core CPU, even though iPhone or Windows Phone runs smoother with a single core tech.



Android has left a bad taste in my mouth and I'll never use it again, ever. There is a reason why Android has the lowest satisfaction rate. No matter how hard the Android fanboys try hide the truth,
