The Nokia Lumia 900 and the Galaxy Nexus for Verizon. These are two top phones on the largest carriers in the US. Both feature 4G LTE data speeds and both have the latest versions of their operating systems. I have both in my possession right now; and while the Lumia 900 feels better in-hand, the Galaxy Nexus is thinner and lighter.
Price not a factor…
In terms of price, there is no difference. Amazon, which has the lowest prices you’ll find in the US, has deals on the Nokia Lumia 900 (here) and the Galaxy Nexus (here) for $49 with a 2-year contract.
Let’s take a look at the full gallery of photos. Let me know in the comments at the end of the article if you have any questions about either device.
Gallery: Galaxy Nexus vs. Nokia Lumia 900 in photos
As you can see in the photo above, the Galaxy Nexus is only slightly thinner.
Below you can see the back of both phones and there camera areas. Notice the Lumia 900 looks very discrete, with almost nothing on the back (ignore the Nicki Minaj signature). The Galaxy Nexus has a pattern and texture on the back that make it easy to grip, but takes away from the otherwise sleek design. Since the matte finish on the Lumia 900 is easy to grip as well, I prefer it over the Samsung design.
And below we have the displays of both devices. The Galaxy Nexus checks in at 4.65-inch while the Lumia 900 has a 4.3-inch screen.
That image is not a great comparison of the screens. In another article I’ll give you better photos with both phones showing the same image.
