Dear MNB Readers, Unknown to some (myself included), the Nokia Lumia 620 (yes, six, two, zero) had a single HAAC microphone that enabled mono Nokia Rich Recording (PDF) just like the two (stereo)HAAC microphones that debuted in the Nokia 808 PureView. Here is what Nokia had to say about their HAAC mics in the 808 PureView: What you’ll […]
Dear MNB readers, In this episode of Weekend Watch, we cover the value that is to be gained in purchasing a Nokia Lumia 635 either for yourself or someone else as a gift. I consider value to be the sum of a lot of things and it varies from buyer to buyer, user to user […]
Dear MNB Readers! Welcome to another edition of Weekend Watch! For this episode, our focus (pun from picture above) is on Games or specifically, gaming on the Nokia Lumia 635. Some readers are rightfully concerned with the gaming potential of the $99 no contract Lumia 635 as it only has 512MB of RAM to stuff […]
As requested by some on my youtube on twitter, here’s a video detailing all the hardware, design and spec differences between Nokia’s lime-up of 9XX WP 8 devices. Of course the Lumia 930 has the upper hand coming out much more recently than the 920 and 925, but in terms of design and dimensions the […]
Since the Lumia 930 and the 1520 are Nokia’s current “flagship status” devices, here’s a quick video running down the differences between the two devices in terms of hardware, design and specs.
Rajeev Suri was just announced to be Nokia’s new CEO earlier this morning, here’s his video addressing the internet/world as the new head of Nokia. *Spoiler alert there’s no mention of devices* He basically mentions the forward plans of Nokia in terms of technologies, HERE and other sectors; and its relationship to customers consumers and […]
With WP 8.1 being out for a while now as a developer preview (which is featured locked; so nothing new will be added, just bug fixes); here’s a look at our top 5 favorite features. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgLcOdcvzks&feature=youtu.be&a So those are my top 5 features? Did yours make the cut? If not list yours below.
With WP 8.1 bringing more controls to your notification center via Action center, one of the most important features for me was the inclusion of custom notifications per app under the settings. So below is a quick video tutorial showing how to change the notification tone for each app separately, which is a godsend feature […]
Windows Phone 8.1 is a hell of an update; with so many features a lot of us have been asking for for the past two years. So here’s a quick video showing the main features in WP 8.1 (aptly titles the “short version”) as a full changelog will take some time (and a whole lot […]
Cortana! Possibly the most exciting thing about WP 8.1, a personalized voice assistant that can finally rival the likes of Siri and Google Now. So here’s a quick first look (but before that a video showing how to get Cortana if you’re outside the US). http://youtu.be/4A8NPXY_Vd0 Once you start Cortana you’ll be prompted to enter […]

Cyanide and Happiness is a pretty awesome web comic, that never fails (well usually) to get a laugh out of me, from their obscene and sometimes offensive comics to their slightly more tame ones. They also have an official Android and iOS app, but naturally no such app exists for WP; until now. Daily Explosm […]
In the video below, you can see how to put iOS like toggles to your Nokia X. Install Easy Controller app and after you open it once you can swipe from the bottom to access quick toggles. All buttons work except the torch since there’s no LED flash (XL has a flash). The camera button […]
The Lumia 1320 might share the screen size as the Lumia 1520, but when it comes to the camera they couldn’t be more unlike; the Lumia 1520 has a Pureview 20 Mp camera with OIS, Oversampling and some sweet lenses, the Lumia 1320 on the other hand is your standard old 5 Mp shooter without […]
Dear MNB Readers! Nokia currently has a Windows tablet, the excellent Nokia Lumia 2520 that is powered by the Windows RT operating system (OS). Windows RT is a great OS considering Microsoft’s intentions. Windows RT looks great, runs smoothly and provides features in a tablet form factor that you cannot get with an iOS or Android tablet.
