Are you a Windows Phone family? (poll)

image

Windows Phone has a high net promoter index ie people who own one are very likely to recommend them to others.

The people most often subject to these recommendations are of course our families, which often means that more than one person in a family will own a Windows Phone handset.

In my family it is me and my wife, with my iPhone 5s-totting daughter remaining unconvinced.

This allows better internal tech support, and the use of Windows Phone specific features like Rooms.

Have you converted or been converted by a family member? Let us know in the poll below.

After sifting through 32 handsets from Samsung, HTC, LG and Nokia and collecting more than 1 million votes the GSMArena’s Smartphone Championships League has hit its finale, and has settled on pitting the two best Windows Phones against each other.

On the left we have the Nokia Lumia 1020, with its unmatched 41 megapixel camera, while on the right we have the pinnacle of smartphone technology on Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 1520, with its quadcore Snapdragon 800 processor and 6 inch 1080P screen.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 beat the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Motorola Moto G, Samsung Galaxy S3 and LG Nexus 5 to win its spot in the final, while the Nokia Lumia 1520 demolished the Samsung Galaxy S Mini, Nokia Lumia 720, Sony Xperia Z1 and Nokia Lumia 520.

Vote for Windows Phone in the Smartphone Champions League Semifinals

Windows Phone has been doing pretty well in GSMArena’s Smartphone Championship League, starting with 5 handsets and ending with 3 in the semi-final.

Compare this with Samsung, who started with 16 and ended with none, and of course HTC, Motorola and Sony and LG all being eliminated along the way.

The last contender the the pure Google Nexus 5, up against the Nokia Lumia 1020, while the Nokia Lumia 520 is up against the Nokia Lumia 1520, set to be a rather uneven battle.

The semi-finals has already been raging for a few days, and will come to an end tomorrow at 5 PM GMT. Vote for your favourite handset at GSMArena here.

Nokia’s Lumia handsets have been progressing well through GSMArena;s Smartphone Championships League, and today we have the Windows Phone champion, the Nokia Lumia 520, up against the Sony Xperia M.

Sony is expected to be Nokia’s biggest rival in this contest, and have already deposed the Nokia Lumia 625 and Nokia Asha handsets, so every vote counts.

Smartphone Championship – Round 5: Vote for Windows Phone

nl1020

 

Today is the start of the 5th round of GSMArena’s Smartphone Championship League, and and the Nokia Lumia 1020 is up against the Motorola G.

So far Windows Phone has been doing pretty well, only losing the Nokia Lumia 625, while of the 16 Samsung handsets which started the competition only 2 remain.

Given that by proxy this is a battle between Microsoft and Google it is encouraging to see the Lumia is off to a good start. Anything can happen however, so vote for your favourite handset here.

Thanks Rili for the tip.

Round 2: Vote for the Nokia Lumia 520 in GSMArena’s Smartphone Champion’s League

round2

round1

Today is the start of Round 2 of GSMArena’s Smartphone Championship, and we are lucky enough to have the Nokia Lumia 520 pitted against the LG Nexus 4.

As can be seen from the image above the most popular Windows Phone ever needs a little bit of help, but after the Nokia Lumia 1020 beat the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 by more than 3000 votes I dont think the 520 will be lacking in support.

Your burning Nokia questions, summarized

Nokia Reinvented

Before leaving for Nokia World we put out a request for questions the community is burning to get answered.  As I sit here in my extremely  luxurious  hotel room I have collated and summarized the 70-odd responses we got into a more  manageable  collection of questions.

I have divided the entries into feature requests, advice, questions and explanations, and one have to bear in mind that, unless  tongues  slip, it is unlikely Nokia will be able to  answer  most forward-looking questions on record.

We will however do our best to present most to the Nokia  officials  we meet tomorrow.

See the questions collated below.

Feature Requests

  • Micro SDXC?
  • Battery percentage meter, wifi widgets
  • Snapchat app?
  • Call Recording?
  • Detachable camera?  Phoneblocks, different materials? Metal (NL 925) Cyan?
  • File Manager? Second most requested feature on Uservoice
  • Notification centre, multi-upload, attach other files besides pictures
  • Waterproof handsets? Miracast?
