    So after using my Lumia 635 for 8 weeks straight, I have come to the following conclusion. MSFT really needs to make a Lumia that would be similar to the Z3C. Bigger battery, better screen, screen size is actually perfect, camera button, wireless charging, better main camera with flash and FFC in the same form factor as the 635 and about the same weight. I can see myself using that on a daily basis....wait a minute, that is why I used the Lumia 810 for 12 months straight as a daily driver:-)

    As much as I like the Lumia 830, I still think it is a tad too big for my personal taste. I will post my impressions of the Z3C next week and also the 2014 Moto X.
    What MS really needs to release is a newer version of the L925 or something similar. Something that stands out but is stylish at the same time. There really has been very little compelling in WP aside from everyone's fav L1520 or the L1020 for the camera but neither are for everyone.

    Any 'flagship' they release or any mid range phone needs to stand out more. Of course having the app issue still around isn't helping either.

    That is still a possibility but who knows? Maybe MS has a few tricks up their sleeve we don't know about.

    And they do have such spacey sleeves *coughs* hololens.

    If I'll upgrade to Lumia 640 I'll miss my camera button on the Lumia 620.

    Hololens is a neat concept but until I see it taking off I won't say much about it. I can see some people getting into that fairly quick.

    If that video they showed of it is anywhere realistic of how it's used it will change computing.

    I don't see myself using it any time soon though. I have a life outside tech...

    Makes me think too much about Total Recall as well.

    Ah yes, the dying camera button of WP on mid and low end phones. I guess that's the price one pays to have a 'cheap' phone.

    I'm giving up on 10052 as it causes reboot to become a daily habit. Back to 8.1 Update 2 for my 636.

    I've touched (played around) with the S6 and S6 Edge and it seems Samsung has come a long way. I somewhat prefer the S6 rather than the Edge.

    The S6 Edge does look nice. I haven't seen one yet myself. I have heard of some handsets with defects but that's nothing new. All manufacturers have those.

    The S6 and S6 Edge look and feel nice. I got to test them both out. I might get S6 Edge or the Note 4

    I'll get around to seeing one sooner or later.

    I'm quite happy with my Sony Z3 for the moment.

    Hi guys. Be en an eventful weekend... My car failed it's mot, so having to organise getting parts for that before I end up settling it on, which means looking around for a new car. Currently deciding between the TT I always wanted and an A3, which is the more sensible choice.

    Cars are a pain...

    I like the TT but I find getting in the car a bit awkward which is why we decided against it. We still like the A4 and the BMW 120i Sport which is a touch expensive.

    Cars are so hard to figure out. :P

    My 620 is a cheap phone but still has the camera button. 😉

    That was Nokia. MS seems to have changed their minds however.

    The 640 is cheaper. Physical button requires additional components (cost) on the logic board and more complexity in cover and frame components etc.

    MSFT is being smart about it and also pricing the phone correctly versus Nokia.

    I drove my friend's TT last Thanksgiving. It is a fun car to drive, he has the fully decked out version, and consequently it is quite fast as well.

    Rubino wrote an op eds piece on this last year...this phone would be a great alternative to the Sony Z Compact series. Personally, I'd do a 5.5" flagship and a 4.5" Compact flagship. But hey, I'm just another armchair CEO.

    Most people feel there is no choice any more. It didn't help BB so I don't know how it will help WP. But then who knows?

    It won't help them. Lol.

    If that's the case, I won't update my 930 any further. What a shame indeed.
