I believe Paul is right but to me Microsoft's strategy seems flawed - in the U.S. In the U.S. low- and mid-range phones won't entice people to move from iPhone and with the app differential it won...

I wonder if the quality of the Lumia phones will decrease without the Nokia manufacturing capability. Or are they just trying make their cheap phones too cheaply?

Good advice. Which I follow. I charge during the work day and while showering. Every day. Has worked out well.

BTW. I have gotten more than 48 hours a number of times.

After listening to this week's Windows Weekly and What the Tech, I am convinced that there is no reason to recommend getting a Windows p/Phone or tablet to any consumer. Microsoft will address/...

That's good. So flagship Win10 phones by end of next year???

This does make sense for me as I currently pay for 3 of the 4 components of the bundle. Fortunately I live 30 minutes from a store, otherwise I would be upset.

Well now I have Lumia Cameria Classic but still no Lumia Camera. Nokia Camera is still on my 1520.

Tuesday, November 4, 2014 - 15:29

I don't see the Lumia Camera (or Nokia Cameria) in Store on my 1520. Also don't see the beta or classic versions.

I agree. Definitely not "game over" for DropBox, Box, Google Drive, etc. If the PC Desktop is not your main device then I can see the OneDrive competitors still being attractive. MS better not...

Whoa! Will have to look into that...

Paul,

Thanks for the focused but information-rich review. It does seem like the iPads, especially the mini, are increasingly the high-end tablet. I have a 16 gb mini "1" and would like to...

The iPhone 5/5S and iOS7 did not grab my attention. Now, the iPhone 6 Plus/iOS8 is making me think about going back to iPhone. Paul is providing some good information./things to consider for the...

It will be interesting how your preview, then review, progresses. The 6 Plus looks very desirable.

I went from a iPhone 4S to a Lumia 1520. Love the 1520 though I have always wished the...

Thanks, Paul. This post helped clear up a few key issues for me. For example, that the CHARMS bar would still exist for touch-based devices.

As an everyday user of Win8.1 - on a desktop and...

What is the difference btw. the new Arc Touch Bluetooth Mouse and the Arc Touch Mouse SE (which is Bluetooth)?

I have the SE version and it is Bluetooth.

I know we are in a brave new world where Microsoft is "mobile first, cloud first." But I keep thinking that I will not keep my Windows Phone/tablets and go back to the iPhone/iPad I used to use...

Web apps make sense to me. However, it most cases, I have liked the Native app better in terms of features and functionality. I assume that it is likely due to effort (and current develop skill...

"But, as long as Microsoft configures Metro as a UI *option* for Windows that can be completely ignored if a user so wants, I'll be content."

I agree with this and cannot fathom why MS did...

Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 15:25

As usual MS responds to bad press by going too far and not sticking to their original design ideas. Doesn't makes sense for desktop but I use if everyday on my Win8 tablet.

You swipe up on...

Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 11:23

I agree - poor for non-touch but makes sense for touch. I use Win8 tablets daily and found I really like the Charms bar over. (I am now used to using the Charms on my non-touch desktop, either by...

Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 11:18

The Charms are dead. Long live the Charmsv2???

I use Win8 tablets everyday and I found very Charms UI very useful. As long as the new UI is better/easier/faster then I will be okay....

I glad there is a fitbit app; I may get a fitbit force now. I was also happy to see that NetAtmo has a WeatherStation app.

Now I am hoping Sonos releases a WP8.1 app.

Following this guide worked on my 1520. Still downloading my apps (I have many). Looks like I have to re-pin a number of apps to Start.

RE: Support All Devices: "This is still controversial in some circles, though I've argued that it's time to let go of the past."

Not sure why this being a discussion topic is considered "...

I second that notion re: syncing issues. I have had so many issues with syncing when using SkyDrivePro and OneDrive for Business that I have been using OneDrive only.

Updated my Lumia 520 successfully. Require 2 rounds of updates but went smooth. Took about an hour in total.

Tuesday, April 8, 2014 - 16:40

Exactly what happened to me : 5 updates (download/install/reboot) then the "Update" appeared in Windows Update (download/install/reboot), then another update (download/install/reboot).
