The number of people that say they can't live without their smartphone may (or may not) surprise you
I was a big fan of Windows Phone 8 when it was released, but with Microsoft neglecting their smartphone platform in the last year, the OS has slipped far behind Android 5.0 and iOS 8. What follows in this article is a list of changes, improvements and new features we hope Microsoft includes when Windows 10 Mobile lands later this year.
Since Microsoft acquired Nokia’s smartphone division, the company has focused its efforts on mid-range and entry-level handsets, with the Lumia 640 we are reviewing today being their latest. It's got a decent hardware package for the price and runs Windows Phone 8.1 out of the box, with a promised upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile later this year.
If you’re one of the 700 million people that use WhatsApp and you also have a desktop or notebook, you’ll probably be interested to learn that the Facebook-owned company has finally released a web-based client.
Selfies are a huge trend and yet most front facing phone cameras still suck. Looking to address this problem, Microsoft's latest mid-range handset dubbed the “selfie phone,” comes with a higher resolution five megapixel front facing camera. Although the Lumia 735’s standout feature is the selfie cam, it comes packing many other features we’ve come to love from Lumias.
