    I went to my local at&t store at lunch and spent some time with the HTC Titan II. It's a nice phone. Seems well built. BUT, I wouldn't trade my Lumia for 2 of them. The Lumia is just nicer in every way. When you consider that many of us got the Nokia basically free after the $100 credit while the HTC cost $200 it's REALLY a no-brainer. Of course this is just my opinion.

    I like the lumia design and screen much better, but I cannot seem to get one that works well. I'm on my third, and I think I may be done trying...

    I had the Lumia 900 and traded it for the Titan II. Was MUCH happier with the Titan II over the Lumia. The colors on the Lumia are WAY over saturated and don't look right. The Titan II screen is very nice and has correct colors.

    Good luck finding a Lumia with no issues...

    I have since abandoned windows phone and went back to Android. Missed it and the features too much. I have had a an HTC One X since launch and the One X is BY FAR the best mobile phone I have used. Speed, software and the screen is the best mobile phone screen hands down.

    Talk about an absurd sweeping generalization! I haven't had any issues with my device, and obviously the One X is not perfect. If I dig through forums, I'll be bound to find posters with bugs/flaws in that device too.

    One X far from perfect. I traded my lumia in at day 29 for a one x and regret it. Wifi flakier than lumia's was before the update. Update promised at end of month. Overall experience doesn't compare. I think the grass always looks greener. Even the camera on the One X, while nice, isn't perfect.

    I think Nokia is bringing a lot to the table, pushing the WP7 ecosystem forward. I'm selling the One X and coming back to WP7. I think it's all about finding what works for you. Maybe there are more "features" in Android, but to me the overall experience is nowhere near as tied together and functional for my day to day use. I enjoy android on my tablet (though I'm looking forward to the WP8 tablets coming) but not on my phone.

    I've had my 900 since day one. No issues and I'm very happy with it. B4 the Nokia I had a Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, loved it. B4 that, an iPhone 4, loved it. The way I see it there are NO perfect smartphones. There are some very good ones though and I'm gonna try as many of them as possible. Arguing over which phone or OS is better is futile. They're all good in some ways and not so good in others.

    I tried 3 different Lumias before giving up. I returned the last one and got the T2. I guess you could say I gave up 3 Lumias for a T2. jk

    Sorry but IMO the T2 feels better, looks better, and performs better in the ways that count the most.

    Also, there is no need to hate on other WP7 devices. They each have their own pluses and minuses.

    Bill, I'm glad you like your T2. It's cool you are staying with Windows Phone and found a great device. :)

    I agree with not hating on any Windows Phones. I am tired of all the Android talk, though.

    Still enjoying my "first" Lumia 900 that I picked up on launch weekend. No troubles. Screen is beautiful, indoors and out. Very responsive. No data issues whatsoever, before or after the update. Couple little software nits that I am certain Nokia will address shortly. Wouldn't trade it for anything available today.

    T2 screen is just inferior. Just take a look at the blacks, they are almost grayish in comparison to the Lumia. Even when the screens are off, the Lumia screen almost looks the exact same color as the black glass faceplate, unlike the T2 which looks grey.

    The T2 is also ALLOT darker at its brightest than the Lumia too.

    I got a 900 and I'm trying to trade for a T2. My 900 is cool but to me it just feels puny next to the T2.

    The T2 is MUCH brighter than the Lumia. Especially with white screens. The T2 display does not look grey when off either.

    The Titan II is a good phone but doesnt stand out for me, its just a big phone. The Lumia is stylish, and that screen is truly beautiful with the blacks widely acknowledged to be better than the Titan. Cant argue with that outdoor visibility either. I'm on my second one, returned the first because of poor battery and the replacement is better in that regard but has the purple tint, but that has been marked for remediation so I'm good with waiting for the fix. No other problems with my current device, got it in a gel case, no screen protector (messed up 4, cant be bothered anymore) and it looks and feels fantastic. Camera is obviously worse but usable enough, and judging by the 800 its not too much to expect some improvements with updates so that's not a big issue right now.

    Personally, its no contest, I would choose the Lumia over the Titan II anyday as there's nothing it offers that I feel is worth switching for, definitely not a CPU increase of .1Ghz. Just too much goodness that comes with the Lumia 900 to give it up.

    Ditto. I'm on my original pre-order Lumia 900 and I've had ZERO problems. I wasn't even affected by the "data bug".

    That's nice that you feel that way. However its a proven fact the Lumia's screen is much better. In fact it's the best of them all and I have science to back that up, not just opinion.

    Socialcarpet, either your reading comprehension has failed or you are being intentionally misleading. That test was under high ambient lighting conditions. In other words, bright sunlight. This is not where most use occurs. If you look at both devices under normal lighting conditions, you will see the T2 is obviously brighter under these typical conditions.

    Am I saying the T2 is better, not exactly. Overall, the Lumia display is better because of black blacks, vibrant colors, and outdoor view ability. The T2 is better in typical use brightness and typing with larger hands, like mine. Reading text on the T2 is immensely better because of this.

    The Titan 2 did feel better in the hand to me but it didn't seem as responsive as the Lumia 900. Could have been isolated to that particular T2 though. The T2 looks too bland, too much like the Inspire 4g i came from. Inspire 4g & T2 both have SLCD, and the AMOLED looks much better to me

    I moved to the Titan II after my second L900 left me stranded without a phone. I know or hope this was an isolated case but I just can't have my phone dieing when all I did was turn it off. The L900 is superior in some ways but build quality doesn't seam to be one of them. The TII is the better device for me. Anyone thing of changing from the L900 to the TII will be getting a different device with the same WP goodness so don't be scared to make the change. My opinion is you can't go wrong with either device. After 2 tries with the L900 I decided it wasn't worth the hustle looking for a good one when the TII was right there ready to go. After 3 weeks with the TII I haven't had one single issue.

    This and durability are the only places that the L900 beats the TII. Don't get me wrong the difference isn't enough to make me want the L900. The Clear black technology used it the L900 does makes the it the clear winner in this category. Size and Price, these devices are almost the same size so don't worry about the TII screen making it a bigger device the difference is minimal, but the TII does cost $100 more.

    If build quality, camera and screen size are important to you get the TII. If screen quality and durability are what you need get the L900 just be prepared to go through a couple of device looking for a good one. Many people get a good one first time around it just didn't work that way for me. Hopefully you will be one of the lucky ones and get a good L900 first time around.

    Man, these L900 vs. T2 threads are getting old. I own a L900, but will admit both phones have their advantages, so it's your choice.

    It seems there are about a dozen or so WPC users who have had "real" problems with their L900s (notice the s). (About half that many at XDA). And you know that people with issues speak the loudest. One was resolved by Nokia (great story) recently. I wish Nokia could take care of the rest, with QC certified devices. Wouldn't cost any more than a few emails and some free shipping. For every one problem user there are most likely 10 or 20 lurking around with beautifully different original L900s. Just gets tiring posting in every thread, "my original L900 works great".

    The HTC One X screen is by far the best screen on any mobile device. Read any review tech site and you will see whatevr proof you need.

    Review? My Review is in store test and looking at it directly under sunlight it failed. Other than that, I didn't notice much difference.

    Plus Lumia is outselling HTC-X one....have fun.
