Although the source describes the phone as "relatively unknown", the design of the Lumia 800/900 has been acknowledged to stand out in the crowd. Nokia has also been described as to "breathe new life" into the mobile world, as a result of the design.
Over 2125 users voted on the poll, and more than 19 per cent of them chose the Lumia 900 as the best designed smartphone. The voters also attributed 3 out of 5 maximum points for Nokia's creation. The overall score obtained by the Lumia 900 was 6,356, followed closely by the Samsung Galaxy S3, who managed to gather around 6,000 points.
The third place was given to the iPhone 4S, while the HTC One X can only be found in 4th, with 5,280 points. The Sony Xperia S and the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900 also participated in the vote, but did not fare as well as others.
After the voting, users described the Lumia 900 as having good looks and good ergonomics, as well as bringing something different to the market.
Moreover, Apple and Samsung devices have been criticised to maintain the same design over the years, although the Galaxy S3 did bring quite a change.
