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…

Windows Phone 8: A Look Back

Windows Phone 8: A Look Back

To many Windows Phone fans and even Nokia fans, Windows Phone 8 was the golden age of Windows Phone. It had the design elements of Windows Phone 7 while it marked the beginning of bringing Windows Phone into the modern age by replacing the Windows CE with the Windows NT kernel. There are many that still swear by their Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 925, or even their HTC 8X. Probably the most sworn upon…

HTC 8X will Not Receive Windows 10 Mobile

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.

Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.29

I don’t think it’s a shock to anyone, but yesterday, Microsoft released another Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview. It has the same build number as before, 10586, but this time it’s 10586.29 where before it was 10586.11. If you’re wondering, the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL ship with 10586.0. Microsoft said that this build was all about responding to feedback, but the reality is that it’s fixing bugs. After all, everyone has been complaining…

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586 vs Windows Phone 8.1 Speed Test

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586 vs Windows Phone 8.1 Speed Test

This is the big one. Quite a few times while Windows 10 Mobile was still in beta, I ran speed tests comparing the OS to Windows Phone 8.1. Windows Phone 8.1 would typically win and I’d conclude that it’s to be expected since Windows 10 Mobile has more features. My theory has remained the same. Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 8.1, and Windows 10 Mobile have all added significant features to the…

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586 Walk Through

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586 Walk Through

On Wednesday this week, Microsoft finally released the RTM build of Windows 10 Mobile, build 10586.11. I say finally because, despite the fact that Insiders should get it before anyone else, many people were receiving Lumia 950s that day that were, in fact, running Windows 10 Mobile build 10586. As always, I did a walk though; however, don’t expect to see a lot of new features. This build was all about getting it ready for…

Hands On with Windows 10 Mobile Build 10581

Hands On with Windows 10 Mobile Build 10581

Yesterday, Microsoft released Windows 10 Mobile build 10581, alongside Windows 10 for PCs build 10576. There wasn’t a whole lot that was new, but there was a whole lot of fixes and such. The main point of Windows 10 Mobile build 10581 was so people could update from former builds, since build 10549 and 10572 required users to roll back to Windows Phone 8.1 to get them. Because many people never got their hands on…
