Both of these phones are premium devices optimized to deliver the best Windows 10 experience on mobile devices.
Extreme Exorcism from Golden Ruby Games and Ripstone is an action-platformer with a twist. Whenever the player defeats a ghost, a new ghost will spawn that mimics the player's previous actions.

The Xbox One and Steam versions of Extreme Exorcism possess thirteen spooky Achievements. At first glance, these Achievements might seem difficult or impossible to unlock. Our detailed Achievement Guide tells you exactly how to get each one with a minimum of fuss – check it out!
Many people when they see Windows 10, they only see the new features and visual changes. For sure, they notice the new Start menu, Cortana, the Action Center, apps, including the new Settings app. However, many users fail to see that Windows 10 brings a lot of changes and improvements under-the-hood as well.
If you ever noticed, Microsoft made a lot of changes in Windows 10, and now the operating system uses even less space than its predecessor, Windows 8.x. In part, the changes were made to allow Windows 10 to run on devices with limited space, such as tablets and laptops with small size solid-state drives.
Windows 10 isn't just an operating system that works locally in your computer. It's also an operating system that works in combination with Microsoft online services such as with Bing and OneDrive. Furthermore, in Windows 8, the software giant introduced the Microsoft account, leaving the old time local account as a secondary option.
While Microsoft hasn't been doing well on the phone market, it doesn't mean that the platform isn't any good. Windows phones are great devices with very capable software -- perhaps the platform just need the right push to get more developers and customers actually using the handsets.
After setting up your accounts for Outlook Calendar in Windows 10 Mobile, you can change which calendars are visible on the app. Since one account can have multiple calendars like one specifically for holidays, another for birthdays, and another for work meetings, you can choose to filter what shows up to make it more manageable. We'll show you how.
Windows 10 is out the door, and millions of users have already upgraded to the latest version. In part is because the new operating system packs a lot of new features, such as a more useful Start menu that combines part of the Start screen in Widows 8.x and functionality found in Windows 7. The Action Center, which is the new centralized location to review system and apps notifications. There is also the new Settings app that slowly begins to replace the Control Panel; Cortana arrives on the desktop with Windows 10 as well, and many new features.
One question we see a lot of around these parts is how do you scan QR codes in Windows 10 Mobile?
Back in the days of Windows Phone 8.1 you could just launch the camera and dive into Lenses for Bing Vision. That app from Microsoft included a nice QR and barcode scanner, but it has since been deprecated and is not even in Windows 10 Mobile.
Unfortunately, for now, the short answer to the QR question is you need a third-party app in Windows 10 Mobile. Seeing as Windows 10 Mobile is not yet complete Microsoft could still cram one in somewhere. However, we don't see this feature exactly being a priority for them either.
Office 2016 has finally arrived on Windows. On September 22, Microsoft released the next version of the most popular apps for the office, and the suite is now available for Office 365 Home, Personal, University, Business subscribers, and for those who purchase the standalone version of the suite.
We've shown you how to get up and running with a new Sonos system with Windows 10 and how to get your Groove on and get set up with Microsoft's streaming service. So, you're enjoying your tunes now in potentially every room of the house. But did you also know you can create new Groove playlists from within the Sonos app?
Here's how. Again, as with other posts in this series we're using the offical Windows desktop application, so your mileage may vary in mobile and unofficial apps.
One of the features I like on Windows 10 Mobile preview is one-handed mode. Just tap and hold the home button and the whole display moves down to half the size, letting you navigate and interact with links or buttons with just your thumb. This feature isn't unique to Windows 10, though. It was introduced with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus by Apple as Reachability. How does it compare with the one-handed mode on Windows 10 Mobile? We'll show you.
If you're an old Sonos pro then you'll likely already know how to achieve everything written here. But, if you're new or thinking of getting into Sonos, perhaps because Microsoft Groove is now supported on the system, we're here to walk you through adding your favorite music service.
A quick note: Many of the steps contained within this guide apply to the range of services available on Sonos. There are some specific differences when it comes to authentication, for example.
We're rapidly moving from a wired to a wireless area very quickly as more people are switching to mobile devices, such as laptops, tablets, and phones, and moving away from traditional computers.
One of the new features on Windows 10 Insider preview build 10547 is the ability to remove the Windows background picture on the sign-in screen. Removing the picture is as easy as flipping a switch in the settings. If you need guidance, we'll show you how to do it.
Microsoft's Groove is now officially supported on Sonos, the popular Wifi connected audio system. While there's no official app in the Windows Store, there is still an official, Windows 10 compatible desktop application.
Here, we walk you through every step to getting your new Sonos system up and running using your Windows 10 PC or tablet.
Setting an alarm on Windows 10 Mobile is really easy. When you swipe towards the app list, Alarms & Clock is usually on top, so it's hard to miss. We'll show you how to set an alarm whether you need to set it every day for work or need to make sure to wake up after a quick nap.

With a 70+ hour career mode, new online leagues, and 24-car multiplayer races, it's safe to call this the biggest and best mainline Forza yet.
For creative gamers, a big part of the Forza series' draw is creating custom decals and car designs. Forza 6 does not disappoint, offering the same robust editor as found in Forza 4 and 5. Users can even share and download their designs, making it easy to decorate your car with community designs. This guide will walk you through downloading custom decals and applying them to your cars.
On September 15, Microsoft quietly began rolling out the third and last major update for its Windows RT operating system. As we have been expecting, Windows RT 8.1 Update 3 brings the new Start menu and a few other improvements to the now retired OS.
When sending an email on Outlook for Windows 10 Mobile, a signature is automatically inserted by Microsoft. It says, "Sent from Outlook Mail for Windows 10." If you don't mind having that in all your emails, then move along… nothing to see here. However, continue reading if you want to remove or change the default signature.
Your Windows 10 Mobile device normally recognizes the SIM card you are using, and you shouldn't need to change anything to have a working data connection. However, if you are experiencing problems connecting after inserting a new SIM card, you can check to make sure you have the correct Internet APN settings. We'll show you how to manually add your carrier's internet APN settings.
Forza Motorsport 6 has launched at last. The latest in Microsoft's racing simulation series, Forza 6 includes over 450 cars, 26 tracks, realistic rain and fog, and night racing. With a 70+ hour career mode, new online leagues, and 24-car multiplayer races, it's safe to call this the biggest and best mainline Forza yet. But we can always want more, right? That's where downloadable content (DLC) comes in!
Early editions of Forza 6 include a free DLC pack called the 'Ten Year Anniversary Car Pack.' Microsoft also offers the 'Fast & Furious Car Pack' for $9.99. Downloading either pack will unlock the cars it brings, but they don't just show up in your garage. Read on for a quick guide to grabbing your DLC rides in Forza Motorsport 6!
One of the first things I do when setting up a new Windows 10 PC is reverse the scrolling direction. When I scroll down with the mouse or touchpad, I want the page to scroll down. It seems more "natural" to me. Of course, many others will disagree and prefer the default direction. Either way, reversing the scrolling direction is as easy as turning on a switch.
Windows 10 has been out for several weeks, and it has already proven to be a great operating system, as it's getting closer to the 100 million upgrades mark. Aside from all the great new features, perhaps one of the best selling points is that it's a free upgrade for those running a genuine version of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
After a few tries, Microsoft hit the nail on the head with the Surface Pro 3. Today, the tablet that can replace your laptop is perhaps the best 2-in-1 device to experience Windows. Not only features a sleek design, but it's thinner and lighter than its predecessor. Also, the Surface Pro 3 is very powerful to tackle virtually any task, and you can easily connect to a 4K external monitor if you need more screen real estate.
