Nokia 3310 vs iPhone 6 vs OnePlus One Comparison

By Rich W Woods People often ask me what phone they should purchase. The first question I ask is what is important to them. After all, people debate all the time on what phone is better. People go on and on about wanting better battery life or a better camera. Sometimes you’ll see a phone with great battery life and a great camera and people say “Yea, but for the price…”.

Nokia Lumia 735 Review: It Reminds me of an iPhone

By Rich W Woods I have been spending the last couple weeks with the Nokia Lumia 735. I really have to say, Microsoft really knocked it out of the park on the mid-range with this one.

Nokia Lumia 830 Review: An Affordable Flagship

Nokia Lumia 830 Review: An Affordable Flagship

By Rich W Woods On September 5, 2014, Nokia announced their first ever affordable flagship, the Nokia Lumia 830. To say the least, I was skeptical.

Nokia Lumia 635 Review: A Whole Lot of Bang for your Buck

Nokia Lumia 635 Review: A Whole Lot of Bang for your Buck

By Rich W Woods The Nokia Lumia 635 was released back in June 2014 and I’ll be honest. I overlooked it. Last weekend, the Nokia Lumia 530 was released in the United States on Cricket and T-Mobile. Unfortunately, the Lumia 530 looked like something that was made for emerging markets. It has 4 GB storage, a Snapdragon 200, and a 5 MP camera that can’t focus. The Nokia Lumia 530 really isn’t a fair successor…
