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 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…

Nokia Lumia 930 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Comparison

Nokia Lumia 930 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Comparison

When Samsung first sent me the Galaxy Note 5 to review, the first comparison I wrote up was with the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 is a year old now and it still outperforms many of the top of the line Android flagships, so it seemed fair to write up a comparison before I get my hands on the iPhone 6S, which is coming in a couple weeks. There’s another phone that’s well over a…

Windows 10 Mobile 10512 vs Windows Phone 8.1 Speed Test

You may recall that there was this little bit of software that got updated last week. It’s called the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview. This time, it’s build 10512, which means that it’s getting much closer to the release. Because of this, it seemed fair to compare Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 10512 to Windows Phone 8.1. Check it out.

Lumia Camera Classic vs Lumia Camera 5 Comparison

Lumia Camera Classic vs Lumia Camera 5 Comparison

This is going to be the first installment in a three part series. It will be three comparisons and the third contender will be the Windows 10 Camera app, which is supposedly the replacement for Lumia Camera Classic. Nokia Camera was a terrible camera app. I’ll say it again. Nokia Camera was terrible. We put up with it because the app took such amazing pictures. It took a long time to focus, there was no…

Nokia Lumia 930 vs OnePlus One: Rear Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods There is not much that the Nokia Lumia 930 and the OnePlus One have in common. One runs Windows Phone and one runs Android. One uses Snapdragon 800 and the other uses Snapdragon 801.

Nokia Lumia 930 Dethrones Nokia Lumia 1020 for Best Camera

Nokia Lumia 930 Dethrones Nokia Lumia 1020 for Best Camera

By Rich W Woods I always found the Windows Phone 8 platform to be exciting. iPhones work great, but you can upgrade your iPhone every year when a new one is introduced and never actually feel like you got a new phone. That’s what Windows Phone 8 feels like. New. From June 2013 through April 2014, my personal phone was a Nokia Lumia 920 and then a Nokia Lumia 1020. Although the photos produced by…
