Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.36 Released to Insiders

Today, Microsoft released another Insider Preview build to Windows 10 Mobile Insiders. This time, it’s 10586.36. The build was released to PCs as a Windows Update, rather than an Insider build. After all, PCs are getting Redstone already through the Insider program while Windows 10 Mobile is stuck on trying to get Threshold 2 right. In the corresponding blog post, Gabe Aul stated that we shouldn’t expect any builds over the holidays, as many engineers…

LG Lancet on Windows 10, Speed Test with Lumia 640

LG Lancet on Windows 10, Speed Test with Lumia 640

Last week, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10586.29. They promised that this week, four new devices would be added to the list of supported devices: the Microsoft Lumia 550, 950, 950 XL, and the LG Lancet. Microsoft officially added those devices to the supported devices list on Monday (although many can’t seem to install the Preview build on the Lumia 950 XL), so I decided to install Windows 10 Mobile on the LG…

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 Device Recovery Tool Adds Support for LG Lancet

Windows Device Recovery Tool Adds Support for LG Lancet

Microsoft seems to be in the process of adding more devices to the list that the Windows Device Recovery Tool supports. This time, it’s the LG Lancet. It’s kind of a big deal. There’s two reasons that it’s kind of a big deal. For one, it’s the first phone supported that’s not made by Microsoft or HTC. Second, that means that it’s the first phone to be supported that’s not supported by the Windows 10…

LG Lancet vs Microsoft Lumia 735 Video Comparison: Verizon’s Windows Phones

LG Lancet vs Microsoft Lumia 735 Video Comparison: Verizon’s Windows Phones

I’ve been working with the LG Lancet for over two weeks now. It’s a very interesting phone. Then again, I find all non-Lumia Windows Phones to be very interesting. Verizon sells two mid-range Windows Phones, the Microsoft Lumia 735 and the LG Lancet, both of which have only been with the evil carrier for a couple months. While the Microsoft Lumia 735 is a bit more expensive, coming in at $192 (which is an amazing…

LG Lancet vs Yezz Billy 4.7 Comparison

LG Lancet vs Yezz Billy 4.7 Comparison

Recently, I received the LG Lancet to review. It’s LG’s first attempt at a Windows Phone since Windows Phone 7. Well, let’s just say it’s LG’s first attempt at a modern Windows Phone. So far, I’ve been pretty impressed with the LG Lancet. My first instinct was to compare it to the Microsoft Lumia 735. After all, those are Verizon’s two mid-range Windows Phones. As it turns out, the LG Lancet blows away the Lumia…

LG Lancet vs Microsoft Lumia 735: Verizon’s Two Windows Phones

LG Lancet vs Microsoft Lumia 735: Verizon’s Two Windows Phones

Currently, Verizon sells two Windows Phones. Well, in the mid-range. They still sell the HTC One M8 for Windows. You can still find a Nokia Lumia Icon in some places, both of which are amazing phones. But we have two brand new Windows Phones on Verizon now, the Microsoft Lumia 735 and the LG Lancet. The phones are very similar in that they use similar chipsets and have the same RAM and storage. They’re different…

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs LG G Flex 2 Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs LG G Flex 2 Comparison

By Rich W Woods NOTE: I wrote this a long time ago when I was reviewing the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. I found it in my drafts and thought I’d publish it. You may be noticing that I’m comparing the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL to flagship devices. Actually, I started by comparing it to the Nokia Lumia 635, while piling on the Nokia Lumia 1320 and Lumia 830. The purpose of this was to show…

LG Lancet Unboxing and First Impressions

LG Lancet Unboxing and First Impressions

By Rich W Woods I’ve finally received my LG Lancet. I have to say, I’m always really excited to review a non-Lumia Windows Phone. Lumia has this reputation as being the “real” Windows Phone and it’s not true. In fact, that reputation hurts Windows Phone as a whole. This is LG’s first Windows Phone, so it’s always very exciting to see a new entry into the Windows Phone world. I also really like to see…
