Nokia Lumias were prominent all over the prior seasons of the Netflix hit series, “House of Cards”. It was nice to see even more of them in this season. Now all phones aren’t Lumias, just 90% of the phones you see. Sounds and visual aids (text messages superimposed on screen) are also WP related. The […]
Knowing where their efforts lie, Microsoft continue to update their lockscreen experience for Android. The Garage project for WindowsPhone however is retired. Next lockscreen can hide the pin or pattern as well as bug fixes and performance improvements. Design wise, Tetra lockscreen’s various lock options look a whole lot better than the Microsoft Next lockscreen for […]
Today Microsoft are launching another OS. MS-DOS Mobile. The purpose? Going back to BASIC and rebooting back to the stripped down essence of the OS. Download the technical preview here. You can run all apps you have before. More detail in the video.
Back in January we requested that video stabilisation make it back as an option for windows phones, especially given how well iPhone has implemented it. OIS is great, especially in longer shot photos. In videos too OIS has made a huge difference over digital stabilisation seen in competing HTC and iPhone smartphones at the 920’s […]
Italian blog, HDBlog.it compares the low end offerings from Microsoft, Lumia 435, 532 and my favourite of the bunch 535. The first two seem identical in design but differ slightly in internals. Note that despite the 535 being highest numerically, the 532 one ups it in the glance screen arena.
Yes, I know I’m mixing up hashtags for brands but this is a great example of making something as cold as tech feel for human and personal. Though I guess majority of Cortana enabled devices are still Nokia branded. Anyway… Some redditors have shared Cortana’s responses to either being sick or feeling sad. The responses […]

Play the most intense hack ‘n’ slash game ever on mobile with Dungeon Hunter 5, and experience a break from traditional RPG mechanics with the addition of gear fusion and […]
This topic had been specifically discussed a few times already when the notion that Cortana might be heading outside of the Windows Phone platform. Some welcomed this as simply being on Xbox and PC but others thought it was a sign to go cross platform. As a cloud first and mobile first company, Microsoft seems […]
Here’s CJ from unleashthephones.com reviewing the recently launched (Jan 2015) Lumia 532 from Microsoft. It’s a good phone for the price range but how does this fare in comparison to the other budget/entry level Lumias?
The first concept, a Microsoft Lumia 935 – successor to the 930 brings a 31MP camera with Xenon. Xenon in built in a somewhat slim invisible hump free 31mp shooter is more than welcome. https://www.behance.net/gallery/22935367/Microsoft-Lumia-935 There’s a 5.5″ QHD screen that’ll be a fantastic viewfinder. A 1020 accessory reborn: Next up the latest concept for […]
Thanks to our friends over at Mixradio, we got a chance to play around with Microsoft’s HD-10 Screen Sharing device for Lumia phones (and tablets!). The HD-10 is a small circular hub, with a detachable NFC plate up top (used to keep on your desk, bedside etc. to quickly share your screen without having to […]
WP reports that in the latest update 2 for WP8.1 finally gives us the ability to individually pin WP start screen settings. Ever since WP7, I thought that was how it should work. Everything pinnable. At the moment I’m missing the basic ability to pin albums, app sections and playlists so easily on the various […]
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 […]

Daniel Rubino of Windows Central writes: Although app and OS updates are great, what is even better is when companies post the entire changelog of what exactly is new. Luckily for us, AT&T agrees with this idea. Daniel […]
