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…

Windows Phone 7: A Look Back

Windows Phone 7: A Look Back

I’ve been making videos lately that take a look back at our technology history. Many people don’t remember Windows Phone 7. In fact, things that happened only a couple years ago feel like they happened decades ago. Technology moves so fast. The younger generation doesn’t realize it, but it’s quite amazing just how different the world was just five years ago. Forget about 10 years ago. Back in 2010, few people had smart phones. This…

Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.36 Released to Insiders

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…

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Microsoft Lumia 950 Camera Comparison

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Microsoft Lumia 950 Camera Comparison

At the time of writing this particular sentence, I’ve been using the Microsoft Lumia 950 for less than 48 hours. If you’re a Windows Phone fan, it’s certainly the phone that you’ve been waiting for. Microsoft has included all new camera technology in the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. About a year ago, I wrote an article that said that the Nokia Lumia 930 dethroned the Nokia Lumia 1020 as the…

Nokia Lumia 930 vs Microsoft Lumia 950 Comparison

Nokia Lumia 930 vs Microsoft Lumia 950 Comparison

Earlier this week (possibly yesterday. Honestly, I’m writing this one right after that one. I’m not sure when I’m going to publish this one. In fact, it might be last week, but I digress…), I published a camera comparison between the brand spanking new Lumia 950 and the brand spanking old, but still relevant camera Lumia 1020. Now that we’ve seen that the Microsoft Lumia 950 can hold its ground against the best Lumia camera…

Microsoft Releases Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.29

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 on 512 MB RAM: Nokia Lumia 520

Windows 10 Mobile on 512 MB RAM: Nokia Lumia 520

Many have requested videos about Windows 10 Mobile for their devices. Even more people asked about 512 MB RAM. Personally, I don’t think that’s the right question. People should be asking about how it performs on a 1 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus. Nevertheless, this video should cover the Nokia Lumia 520, 521, 620, 625, and 720. Have fun.

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…
