Surface Pro 3 made a bid to be your laptop replacement tablet. It was nice but maybe pricey. My ortho’s secretary uses one back in Ph. It looked really cool. Here’s the Surface 3. Similar offering in ways but cheaper starting at $499. The $599 version seems to have a better balance for me at […]

Video stabilisation and Hyperlapse for Windows 10

Video stabilisation and Hyperlapse for Windows 10

| March 31, 2015 | Reply

Back in January we requested that video stabilisation make it back as an option for windows phones, especially given how well iPhone has implemented it. OIS is great, especially in longer shot photos. In videos too OIS has made a huge difference over digital stabilisation seen in competing HTC and iPhone smartphones at the 920’s […]

For detailed video tech reviews, you’ve probably seen an Erika Griffin video. Here she is on the Nokia N1. She says she really liked it when she tried one at MWC, but how about her own N1? Erika says the N1 is a tablet she’d really like to carry. Performance wise, it’s pleasing, especially considering […]

In a post that seemed to be complaining about the amount of space the S6 is eating (especially since there is no memory card slot) the users all posted the amount of free space they get. http://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/30kv6x/a_32gb_samsung_galaxy_s6_has_23gb_user_available/ The Nokia Lumia 930/1020 has 29.1GB. The likes of the HTC One M9 has 21GB. This is unrelated […]

Nokia Lumia 930 camera still beats HTC ONE M9, iPhone 6 and Note 4

Nokia Lumia 930 camera still beats HTC ONE M9, iPhone 6 and Note 4

| March 28, 2015 | 7 Replies

Remember when HTC dissed Nokia’s direction for more pixels and said theirs was the better route, i.e. 4MP “ultrapixels”. Since then, their ultrapixels have been the main thing lacking in all the reviews, so much so that their M9 suprisingly goes back the opposite direction with 20mp. Either way, more pixels at least for HTC […]

Grass made rugby and recycling inspired O2 Windows Phone

Yes, the above is somehow made of grass. 240 hours of pulping Twickenham grass clippings which are then moulded into a template which is then encased in an eco friendly resin. I can’t tell if this is a separate WP or a Lumia 520 with an alternative case. The whole thing is bonded together with locally […]

Lumia 435 vs Lumia 532 vs Lumia 535

Lumia 435 vs Lumia 532 vs Lumia 535

| March 22, 2015 | 3 Replies

Italian blog, HDBlog.it compares the low end offerings from Microsoft, Lumia 435, 532 and my favourite of the bunch 535. The first two seem identical in design but differ slightly in internals. Note that despite the 535 being highest numerically, the 532 one ups it in the glance screen arena.

I guess this is something I hadn’t encountered before since I had always been using phones with a minimum of 16gb storage. My aunt is now using the Lumia 530 which I set up for her some weeks ago.  But she’s unable to complete the requested update because there isn’t enough space on the phone. […]

Couple of updates for OneDrive and Z-launcher on my Note 4. It was also requesting for an update for HERE maps but it doesn’t download anything upon clicking. OneDrive supposedly has some visual changes. Next Lockscreen also seems to have a minor update.

Yes, I know I’m mixing up hashtags for brands but this is a great example of making something as cold as tech feel for human and personal. Though I guess majority of Cortana enabled devices are still Nokia branded. Anyway… Some redditors have shared Cortana’s responses to either being sick or feeling sad. The responses […]

Cortana on Android and iOS – lack of exclusivity on windows, good or bad?

| March 15, 2015 | 23 Replies

This topic had been specifically discussed a few times already when the notion that Cortana might be heading outside of the Windows Phone platform. Some welcomed this as simply being on Xbox and PC but others thought it was a sign to go cross platform. As a cloud first and mobile first company, Microsoft seems […]
