Microsoft Lumia 640 Video Review

By Rich W Woods Yes, I know. I already wrote a review for the Microsoft Lumia 640; however, there were a few extra things I thought I could talk about that would be better for video. Also, it’s such a great phone that I’m so excited about, I really wanted to talk more about it.

Microsoft Lumia 640 Review: The Mid-Range Done Right

Microsoft Lumia 640 Review: The Mid-Range Done Right

By Rich W Woods Let’s face it. The numbering scheme for Lumias is downright confusing. Historically, it has been 5xx for the low end, 6xx through 8xx for the low end of the mid-range to the high end of the mid-range, and 9xx for the flagships. The Nokia Lumia 520 is the best selling Lumia of all time. The successor to the Nokia Lumia 520, the Nokia Lumia 530, really seemed like a downgrade, with…

Microsoft Lumia 640 vs Yezz Billy 4.7

By Rich W Woods It’s been a couple weeks since I published the review of the Yezz Billy 4.7. In case you don’t remember it, it was called It Fills a Hole Left by Lumia. The Yezz Billy 4.7 sits right in between the Nokia Lumia 635 and the Nokia Lumia 735, at a price point not recognized by Microsoft with the Lumia line. The Yezz Billy 4.7 is a stunningly beautiful phone, much like…

Microsoft Lumia 640 vs 2nd Gen Moto E Comparison

By Rich W Woods Yesterday, I published a comparison between the Nokia Lumia 635 and the Microsoft Lumia 640, proving that the Microsoft Lumia 640 is a massive upgrade from the Nokia Lumia 635. It even changed my position on the 6xx series of Lumias from good low end phones to decent mid-range phones. The same thing goes for the second generation Moto E.

Some Lumia 640s Cannot Upgrade to Windows 10 Preview

By Rich W Woods Microsoft reports that certain Microsoft Lumia 640s will not be able to sign up for the Windows 10 Technical Preview, at least not yet.

As I said, I was at the conference, so to be very fair, this is not quite my first impressions of the device. I…
