Microsoft Lumia 950: Windows Hello

Microsoft Lumia 950: Windows Hello

One of the biggest deals about Windows 10 is Windows Hello, Microsoft’s biometric login system. Windows Hello comes in three different flavors: fingerprint readers, facial recognition, and iris scanning. Of course, facial recognition and iris scanning are perfect for a laptop or a desktop PC, since you’re sitting in front of it. Fingerprint readers make more sense on a phone, since you’re unlocking it with your finger. That’s why we’re seeing so many phones coming…

Hands On with Wireless Continuum on the Microsoft Lumia 950

Hands On with Wireless Continuum on the Microsoft Lumia 950

I picked up a Microsoft Lumia 950 on Friday. Of course, the headlining feature is continuum, the idea that you can use your phone like a desktop PC. I don’t have the display dock just yet, but I do have the Microsoft Screen Sharing Accessory, so I figured that I’d give it a shot. Have a look.

Microsoft Lumia 950 Unboxing and First Impressions

Microsoft Lumia 950 Unboxing and First Impressions

I’ve been using the Microsoft Lumia 950 for almost 24 hours now. I have to say that I’m much more impressed with it than I thought I’d be. It’s really exciting. As a Windows Phone fan, I’ve been waiting to see new flagship hardware for a full two years now. I did my camera tests today, so be sure to check back for comparisons with the Lumia 930 (using Lumia Camera on Windows Phone 8.1),…

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…

Microsoft Finally Releases Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.11

If you’re a Windows fan, today is the day you’ve been waiting for, Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 10586.11 is now available. Early last week, we saw build 10586 released for Windows 10 for PCs as well as the Xbox One. Knowing that 10586 is the RTM build, we assumed that we would get it for Windows 10 Mobile as well, at least by Thursday when it was publicly released to PCs and Xbox….

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10581: Ready for a Daily Driver?

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10581: Ready for a Daily Driver?

I have to say, I’m sort of happy that this is probably going to be the last of these videos that I have to make. I wasn’t going to make it, since there’s not a lot of changes from Windows 10 Mobile build 10572. As always, some folks requested a video about this so I made it. Of course, Windows 10 Mobile build 10586 should be the RTM build, so if you don’t want to…

Lumia Camera Finally Available in Windows 10 Mobile Store; Doesn’t Work

Lumia Camera Finally Available in Windows 10 Mobile Store; Doesn’t Work

Well, we finally know the fate of Lumia Camera. First, a bit of a history. Lumia Camera used to be Nokia Camera, before Microsoft bought Nokia. It was generally known as the best Windows Phone camera app. When Lumia Denim came out, we saw a redesigned Lumia Camera 5, including new features such as Rich Capture. Only a select number of phones supported Lumia Camera 5: the Lumia 640, 640 XL, 830, 930, Icon, and…
