I’m not exactly sure how many of you are racing enthusiasts, even if you aren’t I suggest you try this app (Yes I’m recommending the app before even starting the review, here’s why). Personally I consider myself an above-average car fan, nothing over the top but just enough to get excited when I see a rare car […]

Share With Us: Thoughts on Nokia Phones Build Quality…

It’s been a long known fact that all Nokia phones no matter what OS they run have one thing that makes them superior to any other brand; their build quality, and in all honesty that’s what really matter, who cares if your phone has a 23GhZ processor if it breaks the first time you toss […]

Review: iWindows for Symbian

| October 31, 2011 | 4 Replies

This review comes from our reader FireDragon. He installed iWindows on his N8 running Anna. Here’s what he thought. I was checking this application and I like it so far other than how it looks. iWindows brings a Windows Start Button to the Homescreen, over lapping the “Option” button. The Start Button’s graphic is horrible […]

Nokia N9 Review – Summary and overall thoughts (Warning: Long read)

| October 12, 2011 | 92 Replies

Okay so I know I haven’t done the best job out there and I’m the first to agree it was rushed. Mainly because people want to know everything about a phone before they buy it, and seeing as it’s being released already in many countries, there isn’t really the luxury of taking my time. Still, […]

After the feedback about how bad the Accounts, Facebook, Twitter and Settings video was, I filmed it again. I didn’t go in depth again, as there isn’t really a point to it, as settings is the only in depth thing needed there, and well, that was watchable. Apologies for lack of auto-focus and the high […]
