LG Lancet on Windows 10, Speed Test with Lumia 640

LG Lancet on Windows 10, Speed Test with Lumia 640

Last week, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 10586.29. They promised that this week, four new devices would be added to the list of supported devices: the Microsoft Lumia 550, 950, 950 XL, and the LG Lancet. Microsoft officially added those devices to the supported devices list on Monday (although many can’t seem to install the Preview build on the Lumia 950 XL), so I decided to install Windows 10 Mobile on the LG…

Windows Device Recovery Tool Adds Support for LG Lancet

Windows Device Recovery Tool Adds Support for LG Lancet

Microsoft seems to be in the process of adding more devices to the list that the Windows Device Recovery Tool supports. This time, it’s the LG Lancet. It’s kind of a big deal. There’s two reasons that it’s kind of a big deal. For one, it’s the first phone supported that’s not made by Microsoft or HTC. Second, that means that it’s the first phone to be supported that’s not supported by the Windows 10…

LG Lancet Review: The Sixth Most Powerful Windows Phone

LG Lancet Review: The Sixth Most Powerful Windows Phone

I wasn’t sure what to make the title. It was either going to be “The Sixth Most Powerful Windows Phone” or “The Most Powerful Non-Flagship Windows Phone”. Either way, it’s true. Once you kick the flagship phones out of the way, including the HTC One M8 for Windows, Nokia Lumia 930, Nokia Lumia Icon, Nokia Lumia 1520, and Samsung ATIV SE, the LG Lancet is the most powerful Windows Phone in the universe, and it’s…

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…

LG Lancet Unboxing and First Impressions

LG Lancet Unboxing and First Impressions

By Rich W Woods I’ve finally received my LG Lancet. I have to say, I’m always really excited to review a non-Lumia Windows Phone. Lumia has this reputation as being the “real” Windows Phone and it’s not true. In fact, that reputation hurts Windows Phone as a whole. This is LG’s first Windows Phone, so it’s always very exciting to see a new entry into the Windows Phone world. I also really like to see…
