Camera head to head: Lumia 950 vs Honor 10 dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-20 17:02:00

Brand new this week is the Honor 10, which - despite its sub-£400 price tag - boasts a ground-breaking new 'AI-based' camera. Software-based stabilisation, analysis of scene details to adjust processing for each interpreted depth layer, and to enhance subjects according to how people like seeing them. But how does all this hold up to the classic Lumia 950 - can all this new computational...

Radiolise PWA brings Windows 10 Mobile another Internet Radio option dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-18 18:04:05

Internet Radio is perennially popular and for good reason. Music and chat around the clock, and all for free. But did you know that in this world of PWA (Progressive Web Applications) you don't even need an application anymore? Radiolise is a PWA that works just fine in a tab in Edge all on its own, streaming music to your phone even in the background and even when the phone screen is off. One...

Mini-review: Gravity Touch Qi charging base dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-18 11:58:25

It's all very well having a wireless charger on your desk or bedstand. But is it made of plastic? Is it a bit cheap and nasty? If you want a materials upgrade then the oddly named FUSE Chicken have just the thing: the Gravity Touch Premium Wireless Charging Base. They sent this for review and I gave it a whirl here. Nothing special on the specs front - it delivers a standard 1A wirelessly - but a...

AAWP Insight #252: PWAs and Platforms dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-18 08:08:00

I collar Rafe for a chat and catch-up - we talk PWAs, platforms, the changing of UIs and form factors, Skype and Teams. And a few tangents besides. So break out your classic 8.1 Lumia, unfold your Surface Mobile cardboard mock-up and sit down for a chatty 41 minutes of Insight!

Uber goes PWA or bust on Windows 10 Mobile dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-17 10:06:53

Uber's UWP application for Windows 10 was always a little still-born and their cross-platform PWA has been coming on nicely. So it's not really a surprise that a new update to the UWP app is today announcing that as of 1st June 2018 the UWP will stop working altogether and that the PWA on the wider Internet will be the only way to 'request a ride'.

Mid-price head to head: Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro vs Honor 10 dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-17 09:32:00

Just to ring the changes, with a new mid-priced 'flagship' coming along from the Android world, I had the usual choice of what to compare it to from the Windows side - in the end, I plumped for the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro, being of similar size, weight, style, and with similar levels of err... compromise. They're a good match overall, I think. Yes, Android is the smartphone OS of the modern age (90%...

Support dates for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams extended, for Windows 10 Mobile dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-16 18:39:35

A few weeks ago, I reported on some cessation dates for some Microsoft services, but two of these have now been extended, even well into 2019. Matching more closely to the support timescales for the OS itself? Anyway, well worth noting, especially for those using Windows on phones in the enterprise.

24 hours with Windows Phone 8.1 - in 2018: the trials... and successes dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-16 09:21:00

Two weeks ago, I posted about considering the Lumia 1020 under its original Windows Phone 8.1 as a viable set-up, even in 2018. And it is, on the whole, I stand by everything I said in the original post. However, while it may be a viable set-up, it's most certainly not optimal, five years after launch, and six years after the launch of the Lumia 920, the archetypal 8.1 device. In an attempt to see...

FileTag 2 UWP colour codes your files dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-15 10:10:11

A novel idea that's perhaps more use on the Desktop but nonetheless works on Mobile as well, FileTag 2 UWP lets you associate coloured tags with specific files, in theory organising and grouping files in a new way. Perfact for project management or one extra step of file management complexity? Your call!

Review: NASA Picture Galleries UWP dans Téléphonie
All About Windows Phone 2018-05-14 14:36:00

Only ever mentioned in passing here before and with all the SpaceX goings on awakening public interest in all things astronomical, I wanted to feature NASA Picture Galleries UWP in all its glory, for all Windows 10 Mobile handsets, Windows 10 hybrids, and so on. It's not a first party (i.e. NASA) application, but it does a cracking job of 'raiding' the NASA image archives in app form.
