Nokia Lumia 735 review

Nokia would like as many people as possible to get a Windows Phone in their hands and enjoy the experience. In fact Microsoft would also like that as it helps build out their platform even further, which is why the two companies working together under the Microsoft brand

Would you buy a phone with “Microsoft” on the front?

Here’s a question for your Friday morning. Imagine yourself in a mobile phone shop. To your right there’s a stack of iPhones with the instantly-recognisable Apple logo. To your left, some Galaxy handsets with the Samsung branding. Then, in the centre, a phone with this written on

Nokia. Thank you for the memories.

Bear with me here, because I’m in a rather strange mood after listening to a pirate radio DJ shouting “Oh my days” several times this morning and “Oi Oi” quite a lot. I think it’s gone to my head. Nokia, as you’ll know already, is dead. We

Lumia Denim update coming soon

One of the most exciting things about getting a new phone is checking the latest version of the OS.  On Windows Phone this takes two forms: the OS version (currently 8.1) and, if you’re running a Lumia phone, the firmware version.  Cyan is still being pushed out

Microsoft continues killing off Nokia name

It seems that Microsoft have started the process of moving the business and branding from Nokia to Microsoft directly. If you head over to Nokia’s UK website you now get redirected to Microsoft’s own website. This doesn’t come as a complete surprise, there have been rumours that

Goodbye Nokia.

I’m always banging on about it, but brand is a major fact when people are buying a phone. Buy an iPhone and the Apple logo on the back is part of what you’re after. Say “Nokia” to someone and, unfortunately, a lot of people will think of

Nokia Lumia 830 and Lumia 735 – Up close

We took a detailed look at the new Windows Phone handset on Thursday but our friends at PhoneDog have got a great hands-on demo showing the device in action. Equipped with that PureView 10 megapixel camera, the Lumia 830 is just 8.5mm thick and has a solid

Lumia 730 and 735 Launched. Can I take a selfie?

Two additional Lumia handsets have just been launched by Microsoft – the Lumia 730 Dual SIM and Lumia 735. They are, to quote the PR people, “Built for Skype and selfies”. If you’re into that, these might be for you. So, to Skype and take snaps of

Microsoft launch the Lumia 830

Having a fancy camera phone is great, but if it’s too expensive then people could go for a cheaper option. That’s the thinking from Microsoft at least, who have today announced new Nokia Lumia kit at “more accessible” price points. The 830 is known as their “affordable

New Nokia Lumia 830 to Microsoft Mobile branded

Microsoft announce availability of the Nokia Lumia 530

The Nokia Lumia 530 will be the lowest spec and cheapest Windows Phone 8.1 available and it’s going to be available soon. For some reason I’m a little bit excited. Spec wise it is predictably basic. – Processor type: Quad-core 1.2GHz. – Processor name: Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 200.

Nokia Lumia 930 – Review

The Nokia Lumia 930 is possibly one of the last phones to be released under the Nokia banner, with future devices coming under the Microsoft banner. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that the Lumia 930 is the highest spec’d phone they’ve ever released. But is

Nokia Lumia 635.. 4G for under £120

  I have been lucky enough to borrow Lumia 635 to use for a few weeks to see how it fares up as one of the cheapest 4G phones around. I ditched my current and only 2-day-old LG G3 to spend a few days with the Lumia

Cortana to speak with a British accent

A week ago we reported that the developer preview for Cortana in the UK should be heading to these shores in the next few weeks. It has now been confirmed from two Microsoft employees that when she arrives, she won’t be voiced by Jen Taylor, the actress

O2 Lumia 1520 Cyan Upadate now AVAILABLE

Despite what the Nokia Availability site  says, the Cyan Update for Windows Phone 8.1 is out now on O2 at least. Since early July I have been using the “Settings & Phone Update” option to check and this morning it paid off. After a small Nokia Update I

Has the Lumia 930 had its chips?

I’m honestly not sure where to start with this one. Yes, I could throw in a large amount of potato-puns, but to be honest I’m trying to pick myself up after seeing the picture associated with this story. The idea and PR stunt itself is a great

Microsoft announce the Lumia 530

The Lumia range is stretches right across a wide price range, with many budget entry level devices being available. The Lumia 520 was the most successful Windows Phone ever and Microsoft/Nokia will be hoping the latest addition to their portfolio will share a similar success. This new
