Nokia Play 360 speaker review

I’m a family man. I’ve got a kid. I’ve gotten used to the thought that my big 5.1 audio system will be sitting quietly next to the TV and pop a tune once a couple of months. Metallica won’t be crashing trough, 5 hours a day anymore. But that’s fine, the kid more than makes up for it 🙂 The kid is now big enough to dance around the house and he started loving music just like his daddy did three decades ago. I’ve seen many people improvising all kind of sound systems for their kids, since there’s no niche …

Nokia Lumia 920 review

I’ve been waiting for a long time to get my hands on a Windows Phone 8 trial device, and my wait was over a couple of weeks ago. Having using my Lumia 800 for almost a year, I thought it was the fastest phone out there. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t say the best spec’d phone, just the fastest. I would soon discover that the 920 managed way better than I thought it would. First of all I have got to tell you that I’m a sucker for Nokia’s Fabula design. I loved the N9 when it first came …

Sooner or Later for Windows Phone – Todos made easy

One of the most complex things that everyone does with their smartphones is personal tasks management. Everyone hates adding todos and organizing them into lists and everything. Windows Phone was designed to simple and minimal, and the app that I’m about to introduce respects that in every way. I almost gave up using Todo list software until I encountered this little app. I was using the built OneNote for the most simple of things. No more. Don’t get me wrong, I still use OneNote, but not for such trivial things. Sooner or later offers you the ability to add todos …

SN Upload review – Sharing, sharing, sharing

Social sharing is a big and integral part of Windows Phone, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have it’s shortcomings. Photo sharing is one of those shortcomings. It’s easy to post a message on all your social networks but when it comes to pictures, you have to manually upload it to each social network at a time. Did you ever wondered what you would do if you had two Twitter or Facebook accounts? Windows Phone only supports one of them. How about posting to your Facebook Page? Windows Phone has no support for that whatsoever. This is where SN Upload …

Nokia Asha 308 review – Dual touch

The Nokia 308 does not pretend to be a smartphone, but it does claim to be a smart feature phone. The device looks attractive and will certainly appeal to the youth crowd. The build quality is good even though not extraordinary, but considering the price tag you get more than enough for your dollar. The 308 is made of good quality plastic material and offers a squeak free experience. The dual SIM capabilities are another plus for the budget phone buyer, but the lack of Wi-Fi is a show stopper for those who want internet on the cheap. No Wi-Fi …

Nokia 808 PureView review – The last Symbian

The Nokia 808 is nothing short of a wonder,a miracle. The looks of the phone don’t and can’t tell much about what goes on inside, about what the 808 is all about. The device has a very weird shape, going from beautiful to outright ugly depending on the angle you look at it from. The hump on it’s back is responsible for this transmogrification of the device. The curved body, however, is a pleasure to hold, fits neatly in the hand and the polycarbonate shell that covers the phone’s back provides an excellent grip. The front of the phone is …
