Yay! Whilst IE was steadily improving and although there are a lot of “alternative” browsers, this is the first one I guess that is actually not simply a different IE wrapper. It’s Opera Mini! Whilst yes, ideally it would have been Opera Mobile, at least it’s new. http://www.opera.com/wpbeta Their test version is available and they want […]

  Windows Phone’s settings. They’re possibly one of the most ill conceived settings menus I’ve ever come across and it’s gotten a lot worse since WP8.0 when it was given more features. Back in early WP7 days, it sort of made sense for more common things to be there at the start. It wasn’t so […]

As the rumor war heats up about the Lumia 830, WPDang claim that the Lumia 830 will not have a 20Mp camera as many seem to assume, instead it will most likely have a 10 Megapixel camera, something that lines up with what we have personally heard. Other specs for the upcoming device include a […]

Plastic Surgery back to black: DIY Housing change on Nokia Lumia 1020

| September 1, 2014 | Reply

Reddit user, kertong, wasn’t a fan of the yellow colour on his Nokia Lumia 1020. So he changed it with a housing he bought  along with matching SIM tray. Apparently it wasn’t all that difficult and gives the 1020 a “serviceability rating” of 9/10 http://www.reddit.com/r/windowsphone/comments/2f4bje/got_tired_of_the_yellow_so_i_bought_a_new_rear/ the hardest part was prying the screen out of the body […]

Lisa from Mobile Tech Review compares two very similar windows phone powerhouses. Nokia’s miniature 1520, a Nokia Lumia 930/ICON and the WP version of the HTC One M8. It’s a great offering from HTC. The camera, camera button and AMOLED might sway more towards the Nokia, but that expandable memory, IR blaster and newer CPU […]
