The Ultimate Guide to Flagship Windows Phones

The Ultimate Guide to Flagship Windows Phones

I just finished writing the definitive review of the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. Normally when I get a phone to review, I’m able to write a full review within two weeks. While I’ve recorded video reviews for both the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL, here I am writing a review two months after their launch. There’s really just so much to talk about in the flagship Windows Phone space…

Microsoft Promises New Plan to Deliver Firmware to Insiders

Microsoft Promises New Plan to Deliver Firmware to Insiders

Today, Jason from Microsoft posted in the Answers forum about firmware updates to Insiders, saying that Microsoft is working on a way to make them available. As it stands, Insiders don’t have access to firmware updates, as firmware updates are on the production servers, not on the Insider servers. In order to receive a firmware update, the Insider must roll back through the Windows Device Recovery Tool to get the update, and then update again…

Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL: The Definitive Review

Welcome to the definitive review of the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. First, a little bit of a backstory. Normally when I receive a new phone to review, it takes about two weeks before I can write a proper review. The Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL have been on the market for over two months now and I’ve been using them since day one. In the past two months,…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs LG V10 Camera Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs LG V10 Camera Comparison

It’s about time for me to return my LG V10 review unit to LG, so before I do, I really wanted to compare the camera to the Microsoft Lumia 950’s camera. I’ve been pretty vocal about the cameras of the LG G4 and the LG V10, which use the same sensor. I find that both cameras don’t do a good job in automatic mode. They’re great if you know how to use manual controls, but…

More Lumia 950 Back Covers Now Available!

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, I used to use cases on my phones. I owned a lot of cases so my phone would look different according to my mood. Eventually, I came to a realization. Part of the reason that I’m buying this phone is because it’s a beautiful piece of hardware. Why would I want to cover that up?

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Nokia Lumia Icon Camera Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Nokia Lumia Icon Camera Comparison

When I first got my hands on the Microsoft Lumia 950 a few weeks ago, I wrote up a comparison between the Lumia 950 and the Nokia Lumia 930. Of course, the Nokia Lumia 930 was running Windows Phone 8.1, so the photos were taken with Lumia Camera. I had promised to do another comparison between the Lumia 950 and the Nokia Lumia Icon, which is the same hardware as the Lumia 930, but running…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs iPhone 6S Plus Camera Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs iPhone 6S Plus Camera Comparison

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL are the best Lumia cameras we’ve ever seen. We’ve seen Lumias redefine smart phone cameras time and time again. Lumias have become known for their camera performance. The Nokia Lumia 1020 had an amazing 41 MP sensor, but it had its shortcomings in that it was very slow to launch the camera and take a picture. Sure,…

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Camera Comparison

Microsoft Lumia 950 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Camera Comparison

One of the features that Windows Phone enthusiasts are most excited (and skeptical) about in the Microsoft Lumia 950 is the camera. It’s fair. Windows Phone enthusiasts are used to being jerked around. Remember when the best bargain in smart phones was the Nokia Lumia 520? A quality phone for under $50. Then, low end Lumias ended up being a race to the bottom. Remember when Windows Phone had the best voice assistant? Now, it’s…

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Microsoft Lumia 950 Camera Comparison

At the time of writing this particular sentence, I’ve been using the Microsoft Lumia 950 for less than 48 hours. If you’re a Windows Phone fan, it’s certainly the phone that you’ve been waiting for. Microsoft has included all new camera technology in the Microsoft Lumia 950 and the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL. About a year ago, I wrote an article that said that the Nokia Lumia 930 dethroned the Nokia Lumia 1020 as the…

Nokia Lumia 930 vs Microsoft Lumia 950 Comparison

Nokia Lumia 930 vs Microsoft Lumia 950 Comparison

Earlier this week (possibly yesterday. Honestly, I’m writing this one right after that one. I’m not sure when I’m going to publish this one. In fact, it might be last week, but I digress…), I published a camera comparison between the brand spanking new Lumia 950 and the brand spanking old, but still relevant camera Lumia 1020. Now that we’ve seen that the Microsoft Lumia 950 can hold its ground against the best Lumia camera…
