Review – Case-Mate Naked Tough Case for the HTC One for Windows

7

Covering your phone with a case is never an easy decision, nor is choosing one from the hundreds out there. One of the benefits of the HTC One for Windows is that it comes with a vast army of accessories due to the Android version paving a path. Now, Windows Phone users who grab the phone can benefit.

The Lumia 1520, nearly ten months after release, is still wooing fans around the world. Partially due to its forward-thinking hardware and its unapologetic size, owners of the six-inch phablet tend to be very proud of the gargantuan Windows Phone.

Lumia update support portal is now available on Microsoft's website

71

Microsoft has moved across the Lumia support section for software updates to its own website. Previously available on Nokia's online portal, it makes sense for Redmond to move things across post-acquisition of the Nokia handset division.
