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.

HTC One M8 for Windows vs Nokia Lumia Icon: Which is the best Verizon Windows Phone? Part 3 Final Comparison

By Rich W Woods Verizon has always had a limited selection of Windows Phones. When Windows Phone 8 launched, they got the HTC 8X and the Nokia Lumia 822, both mid-range phones.

HTC One M8 for Windows vs Nokia Lumia Icon: What is the Best Verizon Windows Phone? Part 2: Front Camera

By Rich W Woods I don’t like Verizon. I also don’t like Sprint. The reason is that with either of those networks the only phones that you can use are ones that they sell.

HTC One M8 for Windows vs Nokia Lumia Icon: Which Verizon Windows Phone is the Best? Part 1

By Rich W Woods I am not a fan of Verizon. In fact, I’m not a fan of Sprint either and it has nothing to do with the quality of their networks. It has to do with the fact that if you own an unlocked phone or if you want to buy one, you can’t use it on theirs. They use CDMA while the rest of the world uses GSM so if you have your…

By Rich W Woods The HTC One M8 is the first computer in history that allows the customer to choose the operating system at the time of purchase. While the HTC One M8 is an incredible phone with a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor and a 5 MP front facing camera, there has been some disagreement as to whether the rear camera is up to par.

HTC One M8: Windows Phone vs Sense vs Google Play: Front Camera

By Rich W Woods One thing you may or may not know about the HTC One M8 is that it has a 5 MP front facing camera. That may not seem like a lot compared to the rear facing cameras on Nokia’s Lumia line that get up to 41 MP or Samsung’s 13 MP or even Apple’s 8 MP rear camera. What you may not realize is that most phones have an extremely low resolution…

HTC One M8: Sense vs Windows Phone vs Google Play: Rear Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods Yes, I know. I did this already. The problem is, last time I compared the cameras I just said why someone purchasing an HTC One M8 should not purchase the Google Play Edition rather than actually including it in the comparison.

HTC One M8 vs HTC One M8 for Windows: Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods While the HTC One M8 for Windows is the first device in history to ship with an option of which operating system to use, there is a third variant out there. The three versions of the HTC One M8 are the HTC Sense version, the Google Play edition, and now the Windows Phone version. Going to prove that theory wrong. If there is one thing I know about Windows Phone users,…
