This post was meant to come in after a few more days into Android but there were some uni deadlines that needed to be prioritised. This was written after a week’s use and unfortunately got buried under a pile of other things but the last post about Tom giving up on WP reminded me to post it. […]

Nokia 3310’s kindred spirit: Oppo R5 smashing Apple and nails it

| December 11, 2014 | Reply

NOKIA is the name for robustness and durability. So much so that the interweb has the Nokia 3310 Meme and basically, Nokia is synonymous for build quality. When the Lumia 900 was announced, we saw a video of it being used as a hammer to knock a nail into a piece of wood. Excellent stuff. […]

Nokia McLaren vs iPhone 6, the cancelled last Nokia Lumia flagship, 1020 successor with MicroSD

Nokia McLaren vs iPhone 6, the cancelled last Nokia Lumia flagship, 1020 successor with MicroSD

| December 11, 2014 | 17 Replies

Here’s a comparison between the cancelled McLaren and the iPhone 6. First off, the McLaren phone is pretty big. Although it is Lumia 1020 in shape, it has a bigger screen than both iPhone 6 and 1020. Looking below, the hump isn’t as prominent. The iPhone 6 is extremely slim but the McLaren phone doesn’t […]

| December 10, 2014 | 2 Replies

We were asked by the team behind Perfect Shift to share some news about their new app. Here’s the press release below. It looks like a stunning game (and only 140MB? Is there more do download after?). It’s free and it seems to be a 5 star hit after 500 reviews at the store. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-gb/store/app/perfect-shift/a6e30499-a0c9-4183-ac5a-de377088e8ba?& […]

Congratulations Jolla: Tablet passes second stretch goal, $1.82M!

With 12 hours to go last night and 30K left to reach the second stretch goal, Jolla fans surged and got 100K for their Jolla tablet. 1.824 million (and 55 dollars!). 13,115 funders made that goal possible, at an average of about $139 each! Kudos to Jolla and the world’s first crowdsourced tablet. The second […]

I found this video left on an open tab from the weekend. It’s actually a pretty good comparison between the Nokia Lumia 920 and it’s similar looking, slimmer sibling, the Nokia Lumia 730. In a way, it’s even closer to the original N9 Fabula. All screen with no camera button. Although it is missing the […]

12 hours to go: Jolla Tablet less than $30,000 away from reaching second Stretch goal for Split Screen

12 hours to go: Jolla Tablet less than $30,000 away from reaching second Stretch goal for Split Screen

| December 9, 2014 | 9 Replies

Jolla reached their first goal super quick when it first introduced the crowdfunding of their tablet. After the million mark, things slowed a bit and they had just made the 1.3M for 128GB MicroSD support. It wasn’t looking like they’d reach the split screen options (1.75M) and definitely not 2.5M for 3G variants. Well, colour […]

A short promo from NOKIA at Nokia Networks. I thought from the title that it was a remnant about Cortana but this is about Nokia Networks leading the way that revolutionise voice calling. There’s also voice over WiFi when regular phone signals aren’t available. This isn’t something like Skype, but it actually connects your call […]

Steve over at AAWP compares the camera from Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 against the Nokia Lumia 930. I remember last year, a sales rep on the phone tried to sell me the Note 3 as having the best phone camera. LOL. I have the Note 4 and I’m just not that excited about the camera. […]

The Chinese smartphone manufacturers have overtaken their South Korean competitors. The nine from  China comprises of Huawei, Lenovo, Xiaomi, Coolpad, ZTE, TCL, Vivo, Oppo and Gionee. I haven’t heard of for of these,  but they make up  31.3% of smartphone marketshare.  This is up against 30.3% of ‘just’ Samsung and LG. It’s funny to think […]
