It wasn’t always a guarantee that the successive Lumia (at least in the entry level range) would have the same combination of features/build expected to match the price. But with the Nokia Lumia 735, TheRegister reckons almost everything was done right this time. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/10/06/microsoft_nokia_lumia_735_review Advertisements They’re pretty pleased with the unibody-looking fabula design that first […]

Not quite sure what this handset is but androidworld.it are demoing Nokia’s HERE maps on it. As we’ve been told in reviews, HERE matches Google Maps in certain aspects apparently and betters it in others (such as completely offline maps). The only thing that bothers me personally is POI.

I’m a big fan of  the wallet case. If you’re not using them you must have seen someone else with a wallet case. As well as adding protection to the phone, they act as storage (no more wallet needed), as well as a stand when watching and that book shape helps hide what’s on the screen […]
