Nokia 808 Case Replacement (disassemble and reassemble)

In this tutorial, I will show you how to disassemble and reassemble your Nokia 808 PureView.
You can use this knowledge for repairs or to switch the housing to change the colour.

A long time ago, I wrote a similar Review/How To about disassembling the Nokia N8.
According to feedback back then, my tutorial was missing pictures and detailed descriptions... I hope this time I did a better job in documenting the process ;)

Windows 8 Gift Card giveaway

I recently won a 10$ gift card for the Windows 8 Store.
(Since the payment options of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 are linked to your Microsoft Account, that gift card should work on both and maybe even the Xbox?)

Unfortunately for me, I didn't check the exact "terms and conditions" of that online contest... the code I got is only valid in the USA.

So I can't use it myself.
If you are an Windows 8/Windows Phone 8 user reading this, located in the USA. You can have it!

Send me an Email to "theone1893 @" (no spaces), the first one contacting me can have the gift card code.

*Just to be clear here (legally), this is not a contest nor am I selling anything. All I am doing is giving away something I don't need. If the code doesn't work for you either (for whatever reason), don't blame me :p


Ok, that was fast... already got the first email.
I hope the code works for you, enjoy it Guillermo ;)

Swiss Indoors Basel: Video performance of the Lumia 1020

For the first time ever, I uploaded a video to Youtube :p
When it comes to the content, its probably not very interesting...

However, it shows lots of different aspects of the Nokia Lumia 1020's video performance, so it may be worth watching anyway ;)

The video took place at the Swiss Indoors in Basel (Denis Istomin vs Roger Federer).
It's at the very beginning of the match and shows the events from the players entering the court, up to the coin toss.

Unboxing the Nokia Lumia 1020 & first impression!

Some of you may already heard that I ordered a Nokia Lumia 1020.

I recently posted a Lumia 925 unboxing, which I got for free with a renewal of my contract (it will be a Christmas present for my brother)... now I got to unbox the Lumia 1020 and this time, the phone is for myself (replacing my Nokia 808)!

For the Lumia 1020 I paid 400.- CHF (~325.- Euro) with a renewal (24 months) of another family members contract (letting me use that subscription was kind of a birthday present to me :)).
At this point, I would also like to thank Franz for his generous donation, making the Lumia 1020 even more affordable to me ;)

I pre-ordered the Lumia 1020 at the end of September, which means I will get a free camera grip.
Unfortunately I will have to wait for that accessory, it is not available yet in Switzerland.

Last Tuesday my Lumia 1020 arrived and I took a few pictures of it for this unboxing :)
