Microsoft Owns the Domain SurfacePhone.com

Microsoft Owns the Domain SurfacePhone.com

As it turns out, Microsoft owns the domain SurfacePhone.com. You can check it out if you’d like. There’s nothing exciting there. It just redirects you to the Surface web site. Izzi from OneTechStop.net discovered this. OneTechStop.net is a friend to For the Love of Tech, but I have to disagree that this is confirmation that Surface Phone exists. Make no mistake, I believe Surface Phone exists. I also think that it’s not going to change…

The Ultimate Guide to Flagship Windows Phones

The Ultimate Guide to Flagship Windows Phones

I just finished writing the definitive review of the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Normally when I get a phone to review, I’m able to write a full review within two weeks. While I’ve recorded video reviews for both the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, here I am writing a review two months after their launch. There’s really just so much to talk about in the flagship Windows Phone space…

Microsoft Promises New Plan to Deliver Firmware to Insiders

Microsoft Promises New Plan to Deliver Firmware to Insiders

Today, Jason from Microsoft posted in the Answers forum about firmware updates to Insiders, saying that Microsoft is working on a way to make them available. As it stands, Insiders don’t have access to firmware updates, as firmware updates are on the production servers, not on the Insider servers. In order to receive a firmware update, the Insider must roll back through the Windows Device Recovery Tool to get the update, and then update again…

How To Transfer Files from your Windows Phone to your Mac

I know exactly what you were thinking when you read that headline. “Who the hell has a Windows Phone and doesn’t use a Windows PC?” I’m glad you asked. The answer is probably no one. While just about every Windows Phone owner also owns a Windows PC, there’s a solid chance that they might also have a Mac or that they might be experimenting with Linux. Whatever the problem might be, there’s a real problem…

Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL: The Definitive Review

Welcome to the definitive review of the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. First, a little bit of a backstory. Normally when I receive a new phone to review, it takes about two weeks before I can write a proper review. The Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL have been on the market for over two months now and I’ve been using them since day one. In the past two months,…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs LG V10 Camera Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs LG V10 Camera Comparison

It’s about time for me to return my LG V10 review unit to LG, so before I do, I really wanted to compare the camera to the Microsoft Lumia 950’s camera. I’ve been pretty vocal about the cameras of the LG G4 and the LG V10, which use the same sensor. I find that both cameras don’t do a good job in automatic mode. They’re great if you know how to use manual controls, but…

Windows: State of the Platform

Windows: State of the Platform

Last year was the first year that For the Love of Tech started to establish a brand, so at the end of 2014, I started a few traditions. One of those was the FTLoT Awards. Another was State of the Platform. It’s probably my favorite of the traditions that I started because I get to look back at the year that’s passed and analyze the state of the platform. Last year, I wrote about the…

HTC 8X will Not Receive Windows 10 Mobile

Well, it’s official. The HTC 8X will not receive the Windows 10 Mobile update. I can’t say it’s particularly surprising. The HTC 8X was never supported by the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview and it’s not even supported by the Windows Device Recovery Tool. The news comes from a tweet from the HTC UK Twitter account.

More Lumia 950 Back Covers Now Available!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I used to use cases on my phones. I owned a lot of cases so my phone would look different according to my mood. Eventually, I came to a realization. Part of the reason that I’m buying this phone is because it’s a beautiful piece of hardware. Why would I want to cover that up?
