Over 500K Lumia 535 in India alone

| January 19, 2015 | 1 Reply

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 […]

Windows”phone” 10 with grouped settings?

| January 17, 2015 | 4 Replies

  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 […]

New 4series Lumia; 435 and new Lumia 532 – most affordable Lumias yet – WP Nokia X #Specifications

| January 14, 2015 | 40 Replies

There’s two new even more affordable Lumias today, Lumia 435 (which looks a bit like the Nokia X – though the white one kinda reminds me more of a mix between the Asha 5 series mixed with 925) and the Lumia 532 which I can’t tell the immediate difference. The specs seem to indicate that […]
