When it comes to commercials for Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone, as they say in Hollywood, everyone is a critic. Either the ad should be complex or minimal, long or short, everybody has his or her idea of what works.

Philippines-based Cherry Mobile is one of the more recent budget manufacturers to jump on the Microsoft train, and they seem to be going all in with their latest commercial.

Microsoft has migrated the main sections of what was the Nokia UK Lumia website to its own online portal. The tech giant recently pushed across the support pages covering Lumia software updates and now it appears as though the green light has been given to absorb remaining content. A combination of notifications and redirects have been set up to send consumers from the old Nokia website to Microsoft's new home of its own mobile products.

Yesterday, I did a deep dive into the Duo Ultrapixel camera on the HTC One for Windows in an attempt to combat some of the negative pushback from Lumia users. One app that I did not mention in that coverage is HTC Video Highlights, as it was tangential to the camera's performance.

What is Video Highlights? For Lumia users, it is akin to Lumia Storyteller, but it does it a bit differently.

Next month will be a landmark time for horror games. Sega and the Creative Assembly have Alien: Isolation, a game inspired by the first Alien film, on the way on October 7. Just one week later, Bethesda and Tango Software will unleashed The Evil Within, the long-awaited return to horror from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. Both games are due out on Xbox One and 360, so our last-gen brothers need not miss out on the scares.

With both games drawing near, the publishers are keeping them in the spotlight with new information and trailers. Alien: Isolation will be getting post-launch DLC for six months in the form of challenging new Survivor mode missions, we recently found out. As for The Evil Within, I recently had the opportunity to play the game and experience its disturbing atmosphere. Continue reading for detailed impressions and a look at both games' new trailers!

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.

Although full of pride, many Lumia 1520 users also have a sense of humor in regards to wielding such a massive device in public. Take, for instance, the following two videos made by WPCentral Forum member nickniko, which shows some humorous benefits in owning a coveted Lumia 1520.

Usually when it comes to smartphone image leaks, it is the high-end flagships caught in a flash. A few days ago though, Celkon's new Win 400 was spied for the first time on Gizbot revealing its white or black color schemes.

If Celkon does not ring a bell, the company is yet another white-label, budget smartphone maker popular in India and other emerging markets. Back in June, the company came forward with an announcement for supporting Windows Phone, hot on the heels of fellow rival Micromax and Cherry Mobile.
