Big Moment: Our First 24 Hours with Nokia’s Lumia 1520

Nokia and Microsoft have a new flagship. And it's a big one, to say the least. We had the pleasure to get a hold of the Lumia 1520, courtesy of Nokia Lebanon. I personally tried it, and so, I am going to share with you my first 24 hours with this beast of a device. When we first heard the news live at Nokia World, back in October, we were thrilled. The 1520 is the world's first quad-core, full HD, Windows Phone 8 phablet. Let me recap the 'firsts'. ...

Smooth & Classy: Nokia’s Lumia 925 Review

I have a bit of experience with Lumia devices, since I have always been the first to review all Lumias that came onto our desks, and the main Tech-Ticker/Nokia liaison agent over the past few years. In this review, I’ll try my best to focus on a number of areas that most Windows Phone 8 owners tend to feel are most important. In my personal time, I tend to use my smartphone(s) on a regular basis as a mean to communicate with family and friends ...

A Speed Date With the New Nokia Lumia Line-Up

We were invited to attend a speed date session with the new Nokia Lumia line-up; yep, a speed date. After all, we need to know if we do rightfully fit with our upcoming device. The setup and the idea were great and all of the attendees were eager to know which device will be their loved one. After having some 5 minutes quickies with the assigned Nokia representative of each device, I suddenly realized that i am not the #teamyellow guy I used to think ...

Budget Lumias: The (Three) Differences Between Nokia’s 520 and 620

The Nokia Lumia 520 has the same reliable internals and happy design language that have already proven their worth in the Lumia 620, but it makes a couple of sacrifices for the sake of its smaller price tag. these include the absence of a front-facing camera, camera flash module and NFC. Let us begin with the obvious: the 520 isn't quite as bright or bold as the Lumia 620. The matte, plastic back cover lacks the glossy, rubberized personality ...

Why Nokia Lumias Are the Best Smartphones for a New Mommy

Many old school geeks have admitted that their first smartphones were Nokias, but with the appearance of other smartphones, especially the iPhone, they have made the switch. Though I briefly tried other devices I always came back, but I have had to turn my back on Nokia too when my C7 decided to die on me and I believed it was time to go Android and have access to all the apps I so badly needed to do my job. A few months into it I understood the ...

Nokia Lumia 720 Review

Nokia's Lumia handsets are finally settling down; and they're settling down well. And the Lumia 720 is, in our opinion, a very important milestone for the Finns, since it definitely has the best design/features combination so far: it comes in the middle of the Lumia pack, with a midrange specsheet by Nokia standards, but attention to detail and built-in features nudges it closer to the high-end standards of many other manufacturers. Design, Build ...

Random Thoughts On Smartphones

Buying a smartphone in Lebanon is quite an easy task; there is no hassle of yearly plans and whatnot, and a variety of models are available to suit your exact needs , tastes and umm... the recommendation of the seller. When buying a phone, you simply go by two options: where to get the best price, or go directly to your "intimate-friend-seller" to get it; and there begins the hassle. Tech-aware people basically don't really have that big of a problem, ...

It was and remains one of the most serious mobile phone builders. Quality mobile phone builder that is. And the Lumia design, brought forward ...

Windows Phone 8 Review: Reborn, Again

I remember when I first watched the unveiling of Windows Phone 7 (WP7) back in 2010, I was completely impressed. An OS that was born again and it set itself apart from all the others by offering a completely different and re-designed user experience. Since then, WP has gone through many changes; but all under the WP7 title: WP7.1, codename NoDo, which brought copy and paste, faster apps and games loading, better market search and general improvements ...
