It has been a long time since we’ve seen a Lumia flagship. The 1520 to me is THE reigning flagship but that was from October 2013. 2013! We almost saw something amazing with the cancelled Nokia McLaren but alas that was no more. According to TheVerge, Microsoft are of course working on a Lumia Flagship […]
Here’s some hands on videos of the newly launched, newly named Lumia 640 XL! The 640 XL has a new display size for Lumia at 5.7″. Not the completely huge 6″ of the 1520 or 1320 but larger than the plethora of 5″ Lumias. It’s an almost all touch variety with physical buttons only for […]
About an hour ago in Barcelona Stephen Elop took the stage once again in Barcelona, just as in the Nokia days to announce a couple of new Lumia devices. The new Lumia 640 and the 640 XL, an attempt by Nokia to streamline the naming scheme and make it a bit more comprehensible to understand where […]
In what appears to be an interesting change from being called 1330 (phablet successor to 1320) there may instead be a 640XL. Reflecting perhaps the 640 specs but in a larger frame. Could this help out with the confusing numbering between generations? Tom Warren has previously tweeted expecting both the 640 and a 1330 (640 XL?). […]
You may or may not have a 4K screen to appreciate the extra pixels, but you’re probably more likely to have some good enough headphones to realise how superior Nokia’s history of audio recording has been, climaxing with the 930 and 1520. Having something as simple as stereo recording changes the whole environment of the […]
The Lumia 435 was announced last month, and marketed as the “most affordable Lumia ever”, and with starting price tags at 70 Euros that’s a well deserved title. Of course you can currently grab a Lumia 520 for ~$30 or even a Lumia 635 for $50, but neither of those devices launched with such […]
Here are a collection of videos that check out the latest low end Microsoft handset, the Lumia 435. The packaging is back to the rectangular cuboid block, the phone looking more like a cousin of the Nokia X but with WP. It’s kinda cute! PhoneDog Games are at least playable. That’s quite different from the cheaper […]
It’s been a long time since the launch of the Nokia Lumia 1020, the last camera Lumia flagship. The 830 tried in ways to bring PureView to the masses. Michael Fisher from Pocketnow compares the two devices. Basically, the obvious part is if you’re strictly talking about the camera, yes go for the 1020. But […]

However the first wave of updates is only available for a select few number of devices, the LUmia 630 and it’s variants, the Lumia 730 and the Lumia 830. Here’s how to upgrade your […]
Although Nokia had tweeted that all WP8 devices would get Windows 10, there were some concerns when an official LumConv post claimed that they were aiming for most devices, indicating that some might not get it. Recently, there were news that Microsoft were pushing to get W10 on lower end devices. Today, there’s some reports that a […]
I love seeing how people personalise Lumia tiles (especially given the initial limitations of them). The promo talks about the cool parallax effect – is that still present with WP10 and background. Here’s one of the apps to achieve this effect. Cheers Alvester for the tip!
Put away your cables, don’t worry about Bluetooth… LumConv has a few ways in which you can transfer some of your data from Lumia to PC. These include apps like: Lumia Share Easy Transfer Flyer Files Another alternative mentioned in the comments includes DUKTO.
A rarity for Sprint to have a Lumia but here’s their promo for the Lumia 635. Whilst they mention a whole host of Microsoft services, they also mention having MixRadio for music.
