Display

  • Lumia 800: A 16-bit, 3.7-inch curved screen with pentile matrix sub-pixel layout.
  • Lumia 900: A 24-bit, 4.3-inch flat screen with RGB sub-pixel arrangement.

The RGB sub-pixel arrangement of Lumia 900 will ensure crisp images and avoid subtle color-fringing (cannot be noticed easily) that the Lumia 800 exhibits on high-contrast edges.

Front camera

  • Lumia 800: No front camera
  • Lumia 900: A 1MP (according to official Nokia site, but said to be 1.3MP) with F/2.4

The addition of secondary camera in Lumia 900 has silenced a lot of Lumia 800 critics.

Battery

  • Lumia 800: 1450 mAh
  • Lumia 900: 1830 mAh

A better battery is what every customer wants, and Nokia has delivered it perfectly!

We know that the location of the LED flash light besides the rear camera and the top part of Lumia 900 is different from Lumia 800, but we are sure that it would not affect a normal user that much! We expect, the biggest difference between Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 to be in the prices. But, Lumia 900 price is not yet announced, we cannot comment on that.
