Still, the Nokia N9 and its MeeGo Harmattan software platform remain unmatched in various aspects of user interface and user experience. Even though MeeGo Harmattan has essentially remained stagnant and frozen in time for 2 whole years, it still represents a benchmark in some ways for what a smartphone user interface should be.

Virtually every N9 owner I've ever talked to loves the N9 unconditionally. It could have been the Eve of Nokia's resurrection. Instead, it became the symbol of its demise.

Web pages took ages to load on the N9 compared to the Nexus 7, even over the same wifi. They're smooth enough once loaded.

I agree on the haptic feedback. My Nexus 4 is piss poor in comparison, as is the Lumia 920. The keyboard felt much better, in general, but Swype would lag from time to time.
