I was first introduced to smart phones when I attended a Microsoft user conference a long, long time ago. The moment I saw the demo I said to myself this is the future of computing and indeed it was.
My first smart phone was an I-mate SP2 which was a gift from S, up until now she’s been looking out for the same expression that she saw in me when I saw her gift. Well, as they say, you never forget your first.
I still have the device but not working anymore because of my own fault, I explored to find out what is inside the phone. I was able to restore it, worked for a while but them some components gave up. It was at a time where smart phone is booming, so model after model started coming out. Unfortunately for me the model I had became obsolete.
I went back to basic phones until I found the next one that I wanted, an Eten X-500, I still have this one with me and still working, I even joined a Twitter contest to showcase it as my geekiest gadget.
I have always been a fan of Windows phone, before the one I have now, I wanted to get a Microsoft Lumia 535, as normal techie, I searched for reviews and I didn’t like what it says about the touch screen. So I went for another phone which is from a relatively unknown brand in this side of the world.
After I read about Windows 10 Mobile, it reignited my interest in a Windows-based phone. I am particularly excited about the Windows Continuum. Just imagine being able to use your mobile to device for your desktop applications.
No need to bring laptops during travels that means I would be able to carry up to 2 kilos more on my carry on. OFWs will definitely love a Windows phone.
A couple of my colleagues just bought the latest model of the leading Android phone. I told them not me, my next phone will be a Windows 10 phone.
Windows 10 – #DoGreatThingsDXB
I’ve had this in my draft since Nov/2015 but then last week I got invited to the @MicrosoftMEA #DoGreatThingsDXB Event.
I got to see and know more about Microsoft upcoming devices powered by Windows 10. From Surface Pro 4 to Lumia 950 powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon Hexacore processor. I didn’t even know that there is a hexacore processor. What I liked out of all the devices was the Lumia 950 XL. It’s got everything that I am looking for in a phone.
- 2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Octacore processor
- 3 GB ROM
- 32 GB RAM expandable with up to 128 GB Micro SD
- 4G LTE
- Wireless charging
- Dual SIM
- 20 MP main camera and 5 MP front Camera
And most of all it comes with Windows 10 enabled with Continuum (Microsoft Display Dock Required – Sold separately). If it wasn’t for already planned expenditures, I would have purchased one already.
Microsoft Lumia 950 XL – I “A”prove.
