Windows 10’s latest update along with the iteration for phones was announced last week. Microsoft really adressed a lot of issues and Windows 10 is looking better than ever. However, there’s always room for improvement so we asked what was missing. Here are your top rated requests: T9 search in contacts. This really is […]
Are you on Lumia Denim? If so, how are you finding the changes? I’ve seen a few comments and tweets mentioning issues that have cropped up after installing Denim (e.g. slower rotation?). I haven’t got it yet so I’m in the “still waiting” category.
Windows 10 for phones looks great! So many new welcome improvements. Until the consumer update is ready, there’ll still be improvements that Microsoft will be adding. What do you think Microsoft has left to add? Here’s one: Frequently mentioned is the possibility of split screen. Genuine split screen of all apps and not the appalling […]
If you watched the Tech demoes by Belfiore yesterday, you’ll remember he demoed most of the live features of Windows 10 for phones on the Nokia Lumia 1520. Here’s a promo which shows some of those new features(e.g. new office, as per screenshot) as well as what’s available on desktop. Windows
Reddit’s r/technology Reactions and Ideas for Microsoft’s HoloLens – #HoloCorana #HoloMineCraft #HoloPokemon
Microsoft’s HoloLens is causing quite a stir. One of the best places to gauge how the reaction will be across a wider range of people is Reddit. Warning: profanity here and there. As per the promo – imagine Minecraft with this. It was interesting to see it portrayed with minecraft creations placed on top of […]
Well Done Microsoft! Good work on Windows 10 for phones :) My Nokia Lumia 1520’s gonna be epic again
Today, Microsoft announced their changes for WindowsPhone. In summary? I thought they did a great job! I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect. The jaded side of me wasn’t expecting a lot even though my mind knew that Microsoft had a lot to prove. I think they’ve done that. There’s a lot of new things but […]
Built for the web today, we have “project spartan”. It’ll come a little later on PC and then the phone so it won’t be on the first insider builds. But it will come. Three significant new features? 1) How you interact with the web and communicate with other people about the web Funnily enough it […]
Oh Hey, another one of those annoying Windows Phone things – the badly implemented calendar. It looks great on Windows 10. I hope we can view 7 days in a row. I like seeing the full week. But now I can have a time line by hour on the left and compare what’s happening on […]
Here’s a look at Windows 10 for phones. It’s looking pretty good! Some of these are from TheVerge liveblog and the official livestream. Recently installed appears on top. Good stuff! Slight translucent white background over the home wallpaper. Same into the notifications. Which can now be expanded Settings is revamped and is identical to the […]
The Nokia Lumia 520 was the entry level smartphone that packed a huge punch. It was no surprise that it quickly became the best selling Microsoft product at the time. The 530 successor tried to repeat the same success but had taken a bit too much in the way of compromises. The 535 fixed all […]
A couple of related posts – both PocketNow and TheVerge share their feedback on the new Lumia Camera with Lumia denim and they’re really impressed, in particular with Rich Capture. PocketNow finds the 930 to take some of the best smartphone photos they’ve ever seen on a mobile device. 8.3MP shots from 4K video […]
One of the things that I’ve found frustrating on most phones is the lack of logic in organising settings. It felt like they were just thrown together and that was that. WP did make some of the basic/most used settings available first but beyond that, it felt confusing. It’s not much better with iOS […]
Lumia Denim Promo: Claims to be the fastest and most intuitive photo taking experience on smartphone. EVER.
Here’s an official hands on demo with Lumia Denim. Having Kristina Björknäs, a Finnish Nokian now Microsoftie doing the demo makes it feel like part of the good old days :). You may remember Kristina from the 1020 launch. She’s a physicist who is passionate about imaging.
