Microsoft CMO Confirms Lumia 650 Existence

Microsoft CMO Confirms Lumia 650 Existence

Chris Capossela, Microsoft’s Chief Marketing Officer, is a guest on Windows Weekly right now with Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott. Mary Jo asked when the Lumia 650 would be released and his response was that they hadn’t announced a release date yet. Of course, up until this point, the Microsoft Lumia 650 was a rumored device. Some leaks have said that it would have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset while Windows Central reported Snapdragon…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Nokia Lumia Icon Camera Comparison

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…

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…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs iPhone 6S Plus Camera Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs iPhone 6S Plus Camera Comparison

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL are the best Lumia cameras we’ve ever seen. We’ve seen Lumias redefine smart phone cameras time and time again. Lumias have become known for their camera performance. The Nokia Lumia 1020 had an amazing 41 MP sensor, but it had its shortcomings in that it was very slow to launch the camera and take a picture. Sure,…

The Delusions of a Surface Phone

The Delusions of a Surface Phone

I’ve been hearing about it for as long as I can remember, or at least since Microsoft launched the Surface brand. The Surface Phone would be Microsoft’s entry into smart phone hardware. I suppose it’s only natural. When Amazon launched Kindle Fire, people asked for a Fire Phone. When Microsoft launched Surface tablets, people asked for a Surface Phone. Of course, that was 2012 when Surface Phone only meant Microsoft’s entry into mobile hardware. Surface…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Camera Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Camera Comparison

One of the features that Windows Phone enthusiasts are most excited (and skeptical) about in the Microsoft Lumia 950 is the camera. It’s fair. Windows Phone enthusiasts are used to being jerked around. Remember when the best bargain in smart phones was the Nokia Lumia 520? A quality phone for under $50. Then, low end Lumias ended up being a race to the bottom. Remember when Windows Phone had the best voice assistant? Now, it’s…

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…

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…
