#7: OK, I need to go back and watch the Lumia 830 reveal again. I swear they showed a camera that was both high-quality and fast. I keep hearing that iPhone photos are "good enough". How fast...

Maybe so, but Paul is suggesting the camera on the iPhone 6 Plus is a better choice "for most people", since the camera is faster pocket to picture. Taking 100+ burst shots doesn't seem to be an...

Lumia phones don't require two photos to be saved. That's only with the Nokia Camera app. And while even the Microsoft Camera requires processing the captured image to save a smaller (normal-...

Hopefully Microsoft will remove "the most partisan hack propaganda 'news' channel" (Fox News) from Cortana. You're complaining about a name that used to be associated with MSNBC, but for people...

Portrait-oriented videos? That's a bigger sin than taking pictures with an iPad.

That is not correct. The article sounds misleading, but I think the key word he used is "redundancy". I think he's downloading the high-res version to his Surface Pro 3 and syncing that to...

That would make it function like a modal window. That wouldn't be consistent with Windows Phone's UI at all. I like that you can open another folder or launch an app without having to first...

Have you considered that the weak link could be the APIs Microsoft is providing, or the constraints the OS is putting on this feature? It's a brand new feature, with APIs Microsoft hasn't even...

Sunday, July 27, 2014 - 10:13pm

My guess is they needed to figure out what changes they needed to make to the APIs before making them available to everyone. Once APIs are released to all developers, then it's harder to change...

Sometimes it's the small things that can make your phone feel fresh and new. After installing this app I realized that the WP lock screen had become old and tired, looking nearly identical to how...

I'm in that boat. For me, I'm keeping the Office 365 Home subscription since I paid up until sometime next year. In addition I'm getting an Office 365 Small Business subscription (soon to be...

I wonder if the rumor of Microsoft working to run Android apps on Windows Phone is part of an effort to switch Nokia X from Android to Windows Phone. It would expand the reach of Windows Phone,...

Why no Windows RT driver? They don't even mention it.

Saturday, May 17, 2014 - 8:05pm

Maybe they will allow us to play our old Xbox 360 Halo games on Xbox One. At least then we could say we can play Halo on Xbox One. Or maybe Anniversary Editions for later Halo games, if they...

I agree. My two biggest issues weren't solved either. #1: Loading artist and albums takes forever when you have a large collection. It used to say "Loading..." for all the artists names in WP8....

I wish this was configurable. It's driving me nuts. Trying to click tiny full-screen icons is nearly impossible without zooming in while trying not to pause the video by touching it. It's just...

There are also "Bluetooth" and "Headphones" volume settings when you use those. These are even more important to me than the others.

Thursday, April 17, 2014 - 3:46pm

I thought the entire "audio" Settings menu was provided by Nokia's "audio" app, not WP8.1....

This is interesting. I don't usually play multiplayer games, but recently I've played almost 30 hours of Titanfall. I have not heard a single curse word or racial slur. It's actually eerily...

Saturday, March 8, 2014 - 11:24pm

There is an option: "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to the desktop instead of Start" that I would think would apply here. But at least for me, on this latest leaked build, it...

I find Twitch to be useful for looking at games I may want to purchase. This replaces game clips and images in the Store. I find it better than video game reviews for determining if I'm going to...

Alright, you're still picking on those of us that want music match in Xbox Music. I'm a Beatle fan, and I'm currently listening to a Beatle album on my Xbox One from a CD, because there is no...

Monday, February 24, 2014 - 10:46pm

How come you can buy a console with a download code, but there is no way to preorder a downloadable game? I knew I was paying top dollar for my Xbox One when I got it on Day One. Would I have...

Saturday, February 15, 2014 - 1:10am

Maybe you're looking at this too much from a developers perspective (and I say this as a developer). Maybe Microsoft is planning for a way for a user to purchase an app on either Windows Phone 8....

Microsoft used to say you should think about the Desktop as just another Metro app. Now it looks like they are abandoning that and making Metro apps runnable on the Desktop. I'm ok with that...

Saturday, January 25, 2014 - 3:38pm

It would be nice if a pinned Metro app on the taskbar would show the full-sized Live Tile for that app when you hover over the icon. Maybe if the app is running it should show the app preview,...

Chrome seems like a poor choice for Windows users, as there are significant trust issues with Google, since they have proven many times that they are willing to screw mutual Microsoft/Google...

Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 11:16pm

And like the iOS version, the app uses up one of the Xbox Music Device slots, even if you don't download any music. Even worse, if you don't have any open slots, the app doesn't even let you...

Paul did mention some good points about the phone. I bought the Moto G and I think Paul's negative points are all valid. Keep in mind a compelling use of the Lumia 520 is to expand the memory...

Friday, January 10, 2014 - 4:17pm

Being a dedicated WP user, I like to keep a fairly up-to-date Android phone handy for comparison. For that purpose, the Moto G is the only Android phone available at $100 with this good of a...
