How would you change Nokia’s Lumia 1020?
It’s a flagship Windows phone! It’s a groundbreaking photography device that could revolutionize imaging! Nokia’s Lumia 1020, with its 41-megapixel “Pureview” lens, promised images that could send Canon and Nikon’s executives into fits of panic. When we placed it in the hands of Brad Molen, he said that the results were “stunning” and being able to tweak the focus, ISO, shutter speed etc was a... Read more →

Has your phone replaced your camera?
It's that time of the year when we get all the latest bits on the camera industry: Photokina. Of course we're there and covering it [1]. I know it's still early but one thing I'm noticing is we're not getting a ton of announcements for point and shoot cameras. Sure, Canon has a fancy new rival with the RX 100. Panasonic followed up with the update the LX7. But these are higher end cameras commanding something in the $500-700 price range.
As our phones get more and more powerful, we're getting... Read more →

What apps help you get things done?
We've got laptops, phones, tablets and now WATCHES....but even with all the tools in the world it's easy to forget about what you were supposed to do today. Apps are getting more powerful and their cross platform integration is getting stronger and stronger too. There is also the good ole pen and paper and some different ways of tackling lists, like Dash Plus (http://patrickrhone.com/2013/04/22/the-dash-plus-system/).

Is the Price going to drop.
The only disappoint for me is my Samsung Omnia7 had a AMOLED display which is blacks are clear blacks and even though the pixel count is not what does the magic the brightness is amazing. considering the Lumia is a non AMOLED don't know why the price is so high, Nokia can say 1000 things about the display when i did a compare in the phone shop next to my AMOLED Omnia7, Omnia still worked better with colors, yeh agree there is a hue but Super AMOLED should address that.

HTC One & One Max, Sony Xperia Z & Z1, Nokia Lumia 1020, 1520 & Lumia 925, Apple iPhone 5S & iphone 5C, Samsung... Read more →

CamSpeed, Camera Speed Comparison (Iphone 5s, Galaxy S4, Lumia 1020..)
Here is a result snapshot of the CamSpeed database comparing some of the most popular smartphones currently available.
List contains average measurements of the listed models in normal light conditions.
As you can see Oppo Find5 is a lot faster to take the first picture than Lumia 1020. Those 38MP have their cost, but on the other hand Sony Xperia Z1(C6903) with its 20MP camera is still pretty fast.
Another interesting thing is... Read more →

Wireless Charging: Is it worth it yet?
Ever since the Nexus 4, and early Nokia Lumia's were announced, I was somewhat excited by wireless charging. This was the future. I wanted to have this functionality.
Over a year later, I own a nexus 4 and still plug in a cable every night. In my opinion I still don't think wireless charging is at the place I want it to be. Here is why:
1. You have to find one that will work well for your phone
I know Qi charging is rapidly becoming the best standard in wireless charging, but a lot of the wireless... Read more →
