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…

Nokia Lumia 730 and 735: The Nokia Tradeoff

By Rich W Woods I love Nokia phones, but there are certain things that I hate about them. For example, the original flagship Windows Phone 8 phones were using Snapdragon S4 processors. They were slow and frustrating to use. Today they announced the Nokia Lumia 830 which they dubbed “the first affordable flagship” which uses a Snapdragon 400. They went so far as to say that it’s better than Samsung and Apple’s flagship, even though…

If you buy an unlocked phone, you can use it on any network in the world except Verizon and Sprint.

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.
