18 February 2012 – The Nokia Lumia 900 is Nokia’s first LTE phone that was announced at CES 2012 recently. On the other hand, the phone-tablet hybrid Samsung Galaxy Note was announced in October 2011.

Generally, the Nokia Lumia 900 and the Samsung Galaxy Note share many similarities in terms of hardware. Both devices have an AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass, an 8-megapixel primary camera with LED flash and a 16GB internal storage.

Obviously, the Galaxy Note has a larger display than its rival (5.3 vs 4.3-inch) and a higher screen resolution (800 x 1280 vs 480 x 800 resolution pixels). It has more processor cores (dual vs solo-core) and is equipped with a higher RAM capacity (1GB vs 512MB). In addition, the Galaxy Note comes with a stylus and an S-Pen input which is convenient for users to scribble down notes or draw an artwork. The phone-tablet hybrid also accepts microSD cards up 32GB.

On the other hand, the Lumia 900 is smaller and lighter (160 vs 178g) than the Galaxy Note, making it more convenient to be carried around. The Lumia 900’s camera is equipped with f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens, allowing you to capture better photos in low light condition without flash.

These two devices do offer LTE support. However, the LTE support for the Galaxy Note is currently limited to selected countries.

No official pricing for the Lumia 900 is available yet, but we expected it to be priced around RM 1800 to remain competitive in the smartphone arena. Getting a LTE phone might be too early for now, not until the LTE connection has officially rolled out in our country. No doubt the price of the Galaxy Note looks steep, but you are getting what you are paying for.
