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…

Amazon Fire Phone: User Review

By Rich W Woods The Amazon Fire Phone is the most well designed first generation phone I have ever seen. It is really something that you would expect to come out of Apple. How well designed a phone is is a matter of opinion. Comparing it to first generation models is a clear cut case. That being said, this is my review of the Amazon Fire Phone:

Amazon Fire Phone: The Price

By Rich W Woods When we were speculating that Amazon would release a phone, we thought it would be a cool phone and that it would be cheap. After all, and Kindle Fire comes in two prices: with ads and without ads. Many were shocked to see that the price of the Amazon Fire Phone is the same as a base model iPhone. Since I’m currently testing the Amazon Fire Phone, I thought this would…

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Nokia Lumia 1520

By Rich W Woods If you are an AT&T or a T-Mobile subscriber and you want a phone with the best camera possible, you are probably looking at a Nokia Lumia Windows Phone. They are the only phones that support RAW photos and the cameras are either 20 or 41 MP. If you are looking at camera only, you may see the Nokia Lumia 1020 and say that 41 MP is the way to go;…

My Customer Experience at Microsoft

By Rich Woods Admittedly, I haven’t had the best luck with Nokia phones. My first Windows Phone was a Lumia 920 and it had a faulty battery. Luckily, I had Microsoft’s Complete insurance plan on the phone so I brought it back a month later. By then, the 1020 had come out so they allowed me to pay the difference to get the new phone. When I started using my 1020, I realized that I…

The 5 Best Smart Phones

By Rich Woods Ok, I’ll admit it. It’s a slow news week (as far as the kind of tech news that I try to dedicate this site to), but as I pointed out in my previous post “The 5 Best Mini Tablets”, we do all love lists. Also, I will continue with my promise: no slideshows! So today, we’re going to look at the five best smart phones. Here it goes: 5. HTC One This…

A Better Way to Manage Photos

By Rich Woods A few weeks ago when school was starting, my wife made the annual comment of “they’re growing up so fast”. I responded with my annual reply of “take lots of pictures”. When iOS 7 was released to the general public, at least a dozen people came to me with the same problem. They could not update their phone because there was not enough space to do it. The only way would be…

The Ingenious Design of the Nokia Lumia 1020

By Richard Woods The most popular phone in America is clearly the iPhone. It doesn’t matter what the latest market share report says. Go in public and see what everyone is using. They’re all iPhones. So let’s ask the question: why do people keep buying iPhones? Of a number of answers, brand recognition is one and the fact is it’s just a really nice looking phone. The average consumer wants their friends to know what…

How Samsung is Killing Android and Helping Windows Phone

By Richard Woods The revelation came to me at an AT&T store watching a salesman try to sell a brand new Galaxy S4 to a young couple that clearly wasn’t very familiar with the smart phone market. The salesman had clearly made this sales pitch a thousand times before. Scrolling with your eyes, videos pause when you look away, answer your phone without touching it, near field communication. “The iPhone can’t do these things. Maybe…
