Microsoft’s Lumia Sales: Why it’s Good News

Microsoft’s Lumia Sales: Why it’s Good News

Wait, what? Did I just say that Microsoft selling 4.5 million Lumias in a quarter is good news? You’re goddamn right I did. After Microsoft reported their earnings and the abysmal number of Lumias that they sold, most analysts said something to the like of “there’s no way that anyone could put a positive spin on this.” Tom Warren of The Verge pronounced Windows Phone to be dead and every tech blog that covers Microsoft…

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…

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…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Nokia Lumia Icon Camera Comparison

When I first got my hands on the Microsoft Lumia 950 a few weeks ago, I wrote up a comparison between the Lumia 950 and the Nokia Lumia 930. Of course, the Nokia Lumia 930 was running Windows Phone 8.1, so the photos were taken with Lumia Camera. I had promised to do another comparison between the Lumia 950 and the Nokia Lumia Icon, which is the same hardware as the Lumia 930, but running…
