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…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs LG V10 Camera Comparison

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

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…

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,…

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

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

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 vs Microsoft Lumia 735 Video Comparison: Verizon’s Windows Phones

LG Lancet vs Microsoft Lumia 735 Video Comparison: Verizon’s Windows Phones

I’ve been working with the LG Lancet for over two weeks now. It’s a very interesting phone. Then again, I find all non-Lumia Windows Phones to be very interesting. Verizon sells two mid-range Windows Phones, the Microsoft Lumia 735 and the LG Lancet, both of which have only been with the evil carrier for a couple months. While the Microsoft Lumia 735 is a bit more expensive, coming in at $192 (which is an amazing…

LG Lancet vs Microsoft Lumia 735: Verizon’s Two Windows Phones

LG Lancet vs Microsoft Lumia 735: Verizon’s Two Windows Phones

Currently, Verizon sells two Windows Phones. Well, in the mid-range. They still sell the HTC One M8 for Windows. You can still find a Nokia Lumia Icon in some places, both of which are amazing phones. But we have two brand new Windows Phones on Verizon now, the Microsoft Lumia 735 and the LG Lancet. The phones are very similar in that they use similar chipsets and have the same RAM and storage. They’re different…

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs LG G Flex 2 Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs LG G Flex 2 Comparison

By Rich W Woods NOTE: I wrote this a long time ago when I was reviewing the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL. I found it in my drafts and thought I’d publish it. You may be noticing that I’m comparing the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL to flagship devices. Actually, I started by comparing it to the Nokia Lumia 635, while piling on the Nokia Lumia 1320 and Lumia 830. The purpose of this was to show…
