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,…

Here are the Known Issues in Windows 10 for PCs Build 11102

Today, Microsoft released a new Windows 10 build to the fast ring, Windows 10 for PCs Insider Preview build 11099. It’s the first Redstone build that we’ve seen that actually has new features. Well, a new feature. This is, in fact, the third Redstone build. Up until now, I’ve been recommending that people not install the new Redstone builds.

If you’re part of the Xbox One Preview Program, you might be questioning the existence of the program by now. Much like Preview for Developers on Windows Phone, you might be wondering if, since Windows 10 is now on Xbox One, have you received all of the previews that you’re going to receive? The answer is a hard “no”. There was no preview update for the Xbox One in December but fear not, there will…

Check Out the New Dell Venue 8 Pro

Hey, remember the Dell Venue 8 Pro? It was that Windows 8.1 mini tablet that kind of sucked. It had a terrible touchscreen along with a terrible pen, which was notoriously hard to find. On top of that, Windows 8.1 sucked on mini tablets. To be fair, it’s not much better now.

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.

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.

Here’s the Known Issues for Windows 10 Build 11099

Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 for PCs Insider Preview build 11099. It’s the second Redstone build that we’ve seen so far. It’s also the second Redstone build that doesn’t have any front facing features. Gabe Aul said in a previous post that from now on, known issues will be listed in the Insider Hub, which kind of sucks for me, as any time I have to write about the known issues of a build, I’ll…
