    Any difference in these two processors ?
    As they have same clock speed :|

    I’ve just bought the Nokia Lumia 800, I couldn’t see why there was such a price difference between the two.

  3. For those curious about the differences between the two, here are some major ones: Lumia 900 is true RGB while Lumia 800 has Pentile screen. Lumia 900 has better sound capabilities. Lumia 900 has gyro which means it recognizes not only up, down, left, right, forward and backward, but also when it move in a tridimensional space, pretty much like the new Wii Controller (Motion plus). Lumia 900 has a 4.3 inch screen against a 3.7 from Lumia 800. Lumia 900 has a flat screen whereas Lumia 800 has curved screen. Lumia 900 is thinner. Lumia 900 has a better battery capacity.Lumia 900 is extremely faster for downloading. Lumia 800 has no front camera. Lumia 800 does not support internet sharing which is a shame (perhaps there’ll be an update soon, I hope.). Lumia 900 has a better processor, but it’s not even noticeable, so let’s skip this one. From the top of my head that’s all I can remember. I hope that helps and if there is anything else any of you wanna know, just let me know. Take care.
