Which phone should I buy among these reviewed?
I need a very detailed advice on which phone should I choose?
I am planning to buy a new phone, either Windows 8 or Android. Now, I like Windows Phone UI a lot and I hate Android's but in terms of specs, Android phones like Nexus and Galaxy S4 are a lot more ahead of Windows Phones but maybe its because WIndows phones don't need much RAM or processor. I'm more inclined towards Android for all reasons but the UI and the only thing I find less in Windows 8 is the number of Apps. Plus, I'm not sure... Read more →

Best Windows Phone apps for FB chat, Feedly, Instagram?
Yesterday I got a very good deal on a new Nokia Lumia 520, and since I wanted to learn more about Windows Phone 8 I am going to be using it as my daily driver for the next bit.
So far, three things I use regularly don't seem to have that great of an experience.
Facebook chat is the top thing I am scrambling to get a good replacement for. There is integration between the OS and FB chat, but it seems unreliable at pushing me notifications. I am giving IM+ a try at the moment.
My RSS feeds are synced... Read more →

How do I clear the cache on Windows Phone 8 without a factory reset?
I think I know the answer to this via a little research but I'll ask anyways:
My girlfriend has an HTC 8S which is a great budget smartphone. Really. However since she got it, the "Other" content is taking up more and more space, which is an issue when you only have 4gb onboard memory
A quick google seems to show that this is app data and cache, and Windows Phone 8 currently has no way to manage the cache, besides maybe a few third party apps.
Anyone have a good solid solution? Shame such a...

Would the MicroSD card be usable with the upgrade?
Certain Windows Phones have the ability to have a microSD card slot built in to it or even have it hidden inside its chassis. I would like to know if this card would be even transferable to the new Windows Phone 8 devices or are these microSD cards pretty much forever stuck with those devices they were installed into?

I know that there are ways to resurrect those cards by reformatting them with a Nokia N8 device but I'd like to know if Microsoft is doing anything about this phenomena.

Should I Stay (With Windows Phone) or should I Go (Back to Android)?
I'm a very simple person, Give me lots of memory(preferably expandable) and a huge screen. Simple right?
I have a Lumia 900, and I love what it does, and I love it for what it isn't, an iPhone or an Android phone. The 920 seems to be the Best Windows available from launch day, but with only a 4.5-inch HD display, and 32GB sealed with no expansion. This doesn't seem that much different from my 900; except the obvious WP8, camera, etc...
Sounds like Android is becoming more, and more what I want in... Read more →

other services baked in?
have there been any other services by Microsoft or 3rd parties that would be integrated to the system? Like having Skype or Twitter be used in the Messaging hub? Or video calls, using Skype or even MSN video chat be part of phone hub? it would also be nice to see other messenger provider built in that having to use so many apps.

Does anyone know of a backlit Bluetooth keyboard specifically designed for use with Windows machines?
I've been looking for one for a while now and haven't been able to find any that are designed for use with Windows. I've come across various options designed for the iPad, Android tablets and game consoles, some of which work with a PC, but require the user to implement some sort of a workaround for basic Windows keys like, well, the Windows key. I've also explored the option of other wireless technologies (especially Logitech's unifying receiver), but finally settled on Bluetooth because of its... Read more →

So, now that we know a bit more about Windows Phone 8, will it be coming to current devices?
In case you missed it, a leaked Microsoft video today told us a little bit more about the next major update to Windows Phone, namely including support for multi core processors, more screen resolutions, microSD cards, NFC, seamless integration with Windows 8 on the PC (will share a lot of code), an integrated Skype app (finally!), new data management features, and finally BitLocker encryption support. Sounds pretty great if you ask me.
What I want to know, though, is will they be upgrading the... Read more →
