Lumia 1520 vs iPhone 6 Plus: Which is better?

Display – This is obviously personal preference, but I find the 6+ display much more comfortable. Truth be told I never found the 1520′s size quite comfortable, but it was my only option as a 5" screen was just too small for me.

RAM – Yes the 1520 has more RAM, but I’ve seen no use case yet where the 6/6+’s 1GB of RAM has hindered user experience (I’ve even had mutliple pages open in Safari in the background and regular tasks were performed fine). My 1520 on the other hand occasionally gets the "Resuming" issue, and at times has felt slow switching between open applications. Xbox Music is my biggest offender when it comes to this.

Blu Win HD Review: Worst windows phone out there

So with the recent posts of the BLU Win HD phone going on sale, I thought some people may be interested in my review.

Some Background:

Before this phone I had owned two other smartphones previously, the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. I had been wanted to make the jump to WP for about a year and after my SO upgraded to an Android phone from iPhone I couldn’t resist getting a new phone and the Blu Win HD matched the price I wanted to spend perfectly! I’ve had the phone for close to 3 weeks now.

Nokia Lumia 1020 vs Lumia 830: which one is better?

Depends. 830 is a newer generation device, so its got newer gen specs that support stuff like SensorCore (think fitbit), will support voice-activated cortana when that comes out, etc. Because its a quad core you’ll likely not run into “Resuming…” screens to much and you performance when taking pictures should be snappier. The Battery life is also much likelier to last longer because its a bigger battery on top of the processor being more efficient.

Nokia Lumia renamed to Microsoft Lumia

To be fair and based on facts, Microsoft remains as one of the world’s valuable brands only behind Apple; and #4 in market value only behind Google, Apple and IBM. Sure Microsoft can never be a Nokia brand because at the end of the day, they are two different brands. It’s not about "killing" the Nokia brand, because again, Microsoft only bought the smartphone division from Nokia. Nokia on the other hand, remains intact focusing on HERE, technologies and mobile solutions. Letting go of the "Nokia" branding was foreseen ever since the deal with Microsoft, there’s no argument there.

Windows 10 will decide fate of Windows Phone

I would think that Windows 10 will either be the saving grace or the final nail in the coffin for Windows Phone.

If Universal Apps take off, there wont be any excuse not to develop for Windows anymore. 1 billion prospective users is something you don’t simply shrug off and not care about. It’ll be a rude awakening for app developers. This is dependent on Win10′s pricing models and everything though, if its poorly executed then there’s not much of a point.

Why I hate coding Metro applications even though I love Windows 8

The apps load in full screen. The simple fact (for me at least) is that for most of those apps, I either plan to use them for 30 seconds and then close them again, or I want to leave them open to quickly check, but don’t like them taking up a full screen. This is less of an issue for me than it probably is for others, since I have two screens and can just leave an app open on the second screen if I want. However it is still an issue – and one which Windows 10 fixes. The ability to have Metro apps resized should make a huge difference in how much they’re used.

Similarities and Differences in Laptop Repair Costs

Many consumers prefer portable computers such as tablets and notebooks, otherwise known as laptops. While they are lightweight and far more versatile than a PC that sits on a desk, they are more fragile and often more expensive to repair. This is the inherent problem of fine technology: Components are either solidly attached or are manufactured only for a specific line of computers.

Apple iPhone 3GS vs iPhone 4: What is the difference?

So put the two best selling Apple devices head to head to help you decide which is the best one.

Design – When it comes to design the iPhone 4 flat out beats the 3GS thanks to the glass panels on both front and back. The iPhone 3GS has a curved back and it feels better in hand even though it is bit on the thicker side.
