Just got my white L900 that replaced my Focus 2. This is one nice piece of hardware. I like it better than the iPhone 4 I have. I can't say a single negative thing about the hardware.
Saying that, and I am running this side by side with my Focus 2. The processing and screen/touch sensitivity seem...off. Sometimes I'll hit the back button once and nothing happens, then I tap it again and it opens up the multi-tasking windows. It takes a bit of time to get used to, I've learned to use this phone a bit differently than the Focus 2 and Focus. After a short period of time, I actually checked and double checked to make sure I had all of the updates and I do.
Overall, I am extremely happy but the actual UI and processing doesn't seem as smooth as my other WP's.
Update: Glaring issues are starting to pop up as using the phone more. The buttons on the bottom of the phone are extremely frustrating. Hitting the back button while playing almost any game opens up the multi-tasking windows. My phone also has the dreaded vibration rattle - it's frustrating. I had to turn off vibrate notifications.
I am still pretty happy with this but after doing some research, Nokia has known about the input lag, button issues, and vibration rattles for months with no fix as of yet.

Did you buy your 900 new? The vibration problem popped up on some of the earlier models but I haven't seen anyone with that particular defect in a while."Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

Just bought a used black Lumia 900 for a really good price. The phone is almost new no scratches and I'm really impressed coming from a Samsung focus. The faster processor and LTE speeds really makes a big difference I notice. Can't wait to have 7.8 update on this phone!

The reason I quoted you is because I did have that back button problem as you mentioned. Annoyed the **** out of me but I did learn that it is a defect... In fact it did not even have the vibrate rattle. Obviously they switched the phone out for me and I was so relieved that the 900 didn't do the back button/multitasking issue! Only downside is I now have the vibrate rattle :/
Oh well!! Fair trade off and I still love this phone anyways. I really really want 7.8

You are right, Dan. I received my replacement L900 yesterday and it's amazing. The people at Nokia wanted to make sure that what I was experiencing was, in fact, a default of my device. I was worried that it plagued most 900's.
The replacement device they sent me is amazing! I am so relieved that most of the issues seemed to be the old unit as this new unit has no issues.
