| October 2, 2015 | 6 Replies

Although we were expecting the Lumia 950 and 950 XL to be unveiled later this week at Microsoft’s October 6th event, it seems Microsoft might also slip in a new low-end device to make it a Lumia trifecta. According to the latest leaks, courtesy of Evan Blass/@evleaks the image above is the Lumia 550, the […]

Editorial/Rant: Lumia 950/950 XL’s Design, In a World of Glass and Metal

| September 30, 2015 | 13 Replies

Since the latest leaks and renders have given us a pretty decent idea of what Microsoft’s upcoming flagships, the Lumia 950 and 950 XL are set too look like, there’s been a lot of debate (and hate) about the phone’s look and design. A large number of you have even flat out called the phones “ugly”, which […]

Why is it so difficult buying things from Carphone Warehouse?

Why is it so difficult buying things from Carphone Warehouse?

| September 24, 2015 | 3 Replies

  First off, this may just be coincidental but my last two purchases from Carphone Warehouse have been a lot tougher than they should have been. Basically no one able to help properly, and being shoved back and forth from customer service and the physical store. The first was regarding the free wireless charger that comes […]

What is the key to Lumia’s success? If you strayed, what will make you come back?

What is the key to Lumia’s success? If you strayed, what will make you come back?

| September 23, 2015 | 35 Replies

It’s been so long since the last Lumia flagship. Microsoft has been concentrating on other things, cloud first, mobile first, switching things to Windows 10 for desktop/tablets and phones. In a few weeks we’ll see the latest and greatest but will that still interest those that left the platform? The render above of the 950 […]

Unboxing the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus 64GB Gold Platinum

I thought I could wait until the new iPhone was announced to make up my mind. My 1520 on W10M was getting too frustrating to use (twitter tells me a few did the same and just reverted back to 8.1). So now, after my stint with Android on the Note 4 (good but then infuriating […]

Nokia C1 Android phone render

This is supposed to be what the Nokia C1 might look like. Nokia’s first dedicated Android device post Microsoft hoo-haa. It’s a lot like the Nokia N1 which of course was mentioned to look like iPhone. It’s certainly a lot better than the supposed leaked Lumias. Hurray to no MS logo at the back as […]

Phablet designs: Nokia Lumia 1520 vs iPhone 6 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

| September 3, 2015 | 2 Replies

On Saturday I got to play with the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Although I’ve never really been a fan of previous Samsung designs, since the S6 Edge, they’ve really got me interested. It reminded me a lot of the Nokia N9 in the way curved screen edges were an integral part of the […]

Mobilissimo’s 30 minute Nokia N1 Review

| August 22, 2015 | 2 Replies

What ever happened to the Nokia N1? I was kinda hoping to get my hands on one but availability of the thing and chatter about it seemed to have completely disappeared (and there doesn’t seem to be a social media component trying to get this device any attention). Anyway, as reviews come in dribs and […]

The final and closing chapter to the Meltemi story. Thanks to our anon source for this piece and also bugging as after many missed emails. ___________________ After previous parts it would be best to explain how the Meltemi UI looked like. On devices there were no buttons in front, only volume and lock buttons (like in […]

  The title pretty much says it all, one youtuber has pitted the indestructible Nokia 3310 vs a flaming red ball of Nickel, who will win? Ok the 3310 didn’t win, but it did take a VERY long time for the ball of nickel to melt through the phone, especially given that the phone is […]

According to @evleaks, Microsoft’s got an event around September time (usual period for past Nokia Worlds/Nokia/Lumia launches). Will it be a big event? Small one for the media?

Weekend Watch: Music video featuring Clippy killing Siri/Cortana

Check out this video, full of 90s Windows Nostalgia. It stars clippy as he comes back to get revenge on a female voice assistant “Shania” (Siri/Cortana? Siri in the Apple/icon but Cortana in the syllables and ending in A) as well as showing modern day memes. Clippy ends up hacking the rest of the world. […]
