Microsoft Lumia 640 camera sample gallery

The new Microsoft Lumia 640 comes with a respectable sounding 8MP camera on the back. It's a step up in resolution from its predecessor, the Lumia 630, and despite no Pureview or Zeiss lens, it does have the benefit of the latest Lumia Camera 5 software.

We're in the process of putting together a full review, but since the camera is a popular point of conversation, we've put together a very quick sample gallery for everyone to have a look at.

Threes! is a big name game, having first been named 2014 iPhone game of the year, launching on Android then finding its home as a snappable game on the Xbox One. Now, it looks as though we may finally, one day, see it find a home on Windows Phone as well. One Windows Central reader put the question to the developer, with an interesting response.

You can now control the camera on your Windows Phone device by giving vocal commands to your Microsoft Band. This is possible thanks to the app, Band Camera Control. After installing the app, just press and hold the action button on your Band and say commands such as 'Camera take a photo' or 'Camera take 4 photos in 5 seconds.' We tested it out on the Lumia Icon and it actually worked. See it in action in our hands-on video.

If you use the HTC One (M8) for Windows, the question if the company behind it will give you Windows 10 may be heavy on your mind. HTC has a mixed record with updates in the past, so skepticism for some in the community seems warranted.

When it comes to the flagship HTC One for Windows, the company is stating on Twitter that users can expect software updates for 2 years after its launch. Since the One was released last August of 2014, a Windows 10 update certainly seems reasonable.

If you like to keep up on your Reddits when out in the world, you have a few client apps for Windows Phone to meet your needs. Our top choice for some time now has been Readit, and today version 2.0 has gone live in the Store after it started testing in January.

What's new in Readit 2.0? According to the app developer, there is no changelog because it is "so huge that I could not complete it... The whole app has basically changed since it was mostly rewritten".

The Bridge is a puzzle combined with beautifully hand-drawn art in the style of a black-and-white lithograph. Before we continue, let's get one thing out of the way. It costs $5.99 at the Windows Phone Store without a free trial. We've probably turned off many people by now, but on a positive note, you can buy the game once, and download it both for Windows and Windows Phone. The Bridge has also won the Unity Game developer contest, standing out from over 600 other entries. Watch our gameplay video to see it in action.
