Microsoft’s help channel have a video on how to update to Lumia Denim. Check out how the handset still says Nokia (not blurred out). Cheers Alvester for the tip!
Nat Geo photographer, Stephen Alvarez has gone from PureView Lumias to the selfie specialist, Lumia 735. That big kitty is super cute ^___^. Good thing the cheetah seems gentle. This is one of the newer videos from the Microsoft Lumia account (they had been reuploading videos from the Nokia YouTube)
As shared by the reddit folks, glance has been updated and glance background is back. I think this was something first popularised on the Nokia N8. This means you can select a picture and have glance change it to something that can always be displayed when the screen is on standby. These pictures are by […]
There was never much love given to the Nokia X family when it graced Microsoft’s lap. It was dubbed as a way to get Android users into Microsoft’s services. Well that strategy is being filed away in replacement of the above – an even more entry level Lumia. Honestly, as nice as it was to […]
I don’t know if this falls on the news of Microsoft giving out yet more of their ‘Microsoft exclusive apps’ like MSN NEWS/Weather etc to iOS and Android but WindowsPhone/Microsoft specialist, Tom Warren, writes on the Verge how he has given up on WindowsPhone. http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/11/7377021/ive-given-up-on-windows-phone He has gone and used other platforms before but now […]
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 […]
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?& […]
Microsoft owned Minecraft is available on WindowsPhone. Same price as Google Play Store and iTunes app store http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/minecraft-pocket-edition/1a625b44-b542-401b-bdff-52b4357c0573?signin=true International Store Link: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/minecraft-pocket-edition/1a625b44-b542-401b-bdff-52b4357c0573 No reviews yet but if it’s anything like the Android one, that’s highly rated at 4.5 stars out of 5 with almost 700,000 ratings. iTunes also rates this highly at 4.5 stars over 51,000 […]
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. […]
Check out this quick demo of some of the Lumia Camera features with Lumia Camera 5. A Nokia Lumia 830 on Denim without Lumia Camera 5 starts up about the same speed as a regular 1520 – a bit slow. Now, you can see that from pressing that camera button to getting the viewfinder is […]
The Lumia 535 from MM is going back to enty-level done right roots. A large 5″ display, 1GB RAM, Flash and front camera makes this a very strong offering. With this being 1GB, users won’t have to worry about waiting to get a game optimised for 512MB. They’re surprised that this plays Modern Combat 5 […]
In response to our last post, we got tweeted this which shows Lumia Denim on the RM-937 which is of course, the Nokia Lumia 1520. Those on developer preview may already have a lot of these Denim features. I expect most of us are waiting to get Lumia Camera 5 to take advantage of the […]
We got these screenshots emailed to us by Mariano on his 1020 (Finland hw) that there was an update. I’m not sure what specifically it updated from but now it’s on Cyan that’s as recent as 27th November 2014. Cheers Mariano for the tip!
Here’s a quick demo of Candy Crush Saga on WindowsPhone. I can’t understand the popularity of this game but millions seem to be addicted to it (I guess next on the waiting list should be Clash of Clans?). Tom tweets that it’s finally coming to WP. Candy Crush is finally coming to Windows Phone https://t.co/U52ieaTJY3 […]
Carphone Warehouse says that Nokia has the most colourful line up that they’ve ever seen so they go ahead and compare the lot. Nokia Lumia 530, Lumia 630, Lumia 635, Lumia 735, Lumia 830 and Lumia 930. It’s a shame the beastly 1520’s not there. On a similar note, Adrianisen compares an almost similar bunch […]
