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…

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 1020 vs LG G4 Camera Comparison

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs LG G4 Camera Comparison

When I get a new phone to review that has a great camera, I always compare it to the Nokia Lumia 1020. I call it the gold standard test. Now it’s time to perform that test for the LG G4. The Nokia Lumia 1020 is two years old now. Despite that, it still has a reputation for having the best smart phone camera on the market. From time to time,  a new phone comes out…

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Speed Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 535 vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Speed Comparison

By Rich W Woods This video was inspired by a post on WMPowerUser regarding whether or not Microsoft is ignoring dual core phones. I commented that people need to get over it. The dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus was a decrepit, old processor even when it was the only processor that was supported by Windows Phone 8. It really says something when your next generation low end phone outperforms your last generation flagship. Of course,…

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 640 XL vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Comparison

By Rich W Woods Yesterday, we compared the Microsoft Lumia 640 XL to the Nokia Lumia Icon. The results were surprising. While the Lumia Icon clearly beat the Lumia 640 XL in terms of performance, the Lumia 640 XL had the better camera. Now it’s time to compare the Lumia 640 XL to the legendary Nokia Lumia 1020. I’m not expecting the Lumia 640 XL to outperform the Nokia Lumia 1020. The Nokia Lumia 1020…

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Camera Comparison

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods It has been a week now since I started reviewing the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge. I can tell you that it is a stunning device. It’s blazingly fast, it has amazing battery life, and the display is just stunning. If you know me or you follow FTLoT, you know that I’ve never historically been a fan of Samsung devices. My review of the Galaxy Note 4 was called A Perversion of…

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Yezz Billy 4.7 Comparison

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Yezz Billy 4.7 Comparison

By Rich W Woods I have been using the Yezz Biloly 4.7 for about a week and a half now. I love it. It retails for $179.99 and I could see myself using this instead of a flagship. It might not be blazingly fast, but it makes up for it in form factor and fashion. It’s super thin and light and it’s beautiful. I want to compare it to the Nokia Lumia 1020. I don’t…

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Nokia Lumia 735 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods I’ve been spending some time with the Nokia Lumia 735, as many of you know. It uses a 6.7 MP rear camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. It’s one of the rare Lumia cameras that have a Carl Zeiss lens but it is not Pureview. Here’s the interesting thing about it. Pureview is Nokia’s (and now Microsoft’s) technology that takes a higher resolution image and oversamples it down to a lower resolution,…

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Nexus 6 Camera Comparison: The Gold Standard Test

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Nexus 6 Camera Comparison: The Gold Standard Test

By Rich W Woods Any time a new flagship phone comes in, it’s time to do camera comparisons and the Nokia Lumia 1020 is always the gold standard test. It is the closest smart phone camera to a DSLR, which is still not very close. The Nokia Lumia 1020 uses a 41 MP camera with a real xenon flash and a 1/1.5″ sensor. I’m not expecting the Nexus 6 to be better than the Nokia…

Nokia Lumia 830 vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Camera Comparison

Nokia Lumia 830 vs Nokia Lumia 1020 Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods The Nokia Lumia 830 is billed as Nokia’s first ever affordable flagship. In fact, it is the highest end Nokia phone to come to the United States since Windows Phone 8.1 happened. While the guts of the Nokia Lumia 830 are mid-range at best, the camera is certainly high end. That being said, it seems fair to compare the 10 MP Pureview camera of the Nokia Lumia 830 to the 41…
