Skype and the constant syncing problem on Windows Phone 8

58

Ever since Windows Phone 8 came out people have rightly wanted Skype. And so they got it, albeit a preview edition which in our vernacular reads ‘beta’ and beta it is.

Previously we’ve passed on a few tips for people who have had battery issues and we can absolutely confirm one of them now: Skype. No, it doesn’t occur often in fact this was our first time with the problem ever since Skype hit the Store a few weeks ago.

The issue started when we were updating some contact info and then we force synced our Microsoft Account under Settings (hold down the account, hit Sync). Only problem was, it wouldn’t stop ...ever.

HTC 8S reportedly features keep-WiFi alive and SMS draft OS additions

26

The HTC 8S, though widely praised as exceptionally designed, has been MIA ever since the Windows Phone 8 launch a few weeks back. Rumor that we heard was HTC was finishing up a few last details to the software and may even had some early issues to fix before release. Regardless, it was just a matter of time before that mid-range device sees the light of day.

Nokia Deadmau5 contest goes live on Facebook, enter to win

14

The other day we reported on the super secret deadmau5 show occurring at the end of the month (Wednesday 28th November) in conjunction with Nokia. Much like the last show, which was to quote some of our California friends 'hella cool', the new deadmau5 concert is meant to celebrate the launch of Nokia's new Lumia lineup.

Why the UK consistently gets these awesome shows and not the US (or elsewhere) we'll never know...

HTC 8X Camera: A Closer Look

HTC 8X Camera: A Closer Look

While Nokia has been busy turning heads with the Lumia 920, HTC has quietly produced a decent Windows Phone in the 8X. The Lumia 920 touts an 8.7MP camera with optical stabilization and Pureview technology.  And while the 8X's camera may sound meager in comparison, it's not a bad performer in it's own right. If the camera is a factor in choosing the 8X, I think most will be pleased with the results.  

We touched on the camera slightly in the 8X's main review and now we'll take a closer look at things with regards to still images.

HTC Windows Phone 8X Review

Windows Phone Central's review of the HTC 8X - a powerful yet sleek Windows Phone 8 device

While the Windows Phone 8 launch spotlight has shined brightly on the Nokia Lumia 920, there's another Windows Phone that has been lurking in the shadows. The HTC 8X launched over at AT&T on the same day and is a respectable Windows Phone within its own right.

The 8X is fitted with a 4.3" Super LCD screen, NFC (Near Field Communication), BEATS Audio, and an 8MP camera with BSI sensor (helps with low-light performance. The 8X is noticeably narrower than the Lumia 920 and reminds me of how the Samsung Focus Flash compared to the Focus S.

If you prefer a more compact Windows Phone, the HTC 8X isn't a bad choice.
