Xperia Z3 proves to be a photo pro

Don’t ask me quite how I do it, but I can easily make any low-light photograph look like a hideous mess. The resulting images are either pasty white faces or blurry dark ones, so to see such stunning photos from a phone is always a strange thing

Blogging like a train!

This weekend we’re doing something a bit different. It’ll involve one phone, a few battery packs and a lot of train journeys. From Friday all of my posts, pictures and updates across the weekend will be created and sent purely from my phone. We’re going to see

Xiaomi Mi Band – Review

Samsung Galaxy Alpha – Review

For so long Samsung fans have hoped to see a new phone with metal design instead of the traditional plastic material used on so many high value devices. And as if by magic we now have two – the Galaxy Alpha and the much larger Galaxy Note

Can you really get something for nothing?

Free stuff. At this time of year it’s in short supply. If you, like me, are looking to get something for nothing then, via your smartphone, you can get exactly that. This, at least, is what my good friend told me after a few beers in the

BT in talks to buy O2

If you’ve watched football on TV recently you’ll no doubt be aware that BT aren’t afraid of splashing their cash. They’ve already upset Sky TV by grabbing a big chunk of Premiership matches and viewers t’boot. So, if you’re gunning for the “quad play” market (broadband, TV,

Review – LuguLake Bluetooth speaker and built-in stand

This is a pretty decent idea if you think about it. Having a Bluetooth speaker is good, but you’ll find that your phone is usually placed on a worktop somewhere. Listening to podcasts, streaming media or internet radio is a little better if your phone is propped

OnePlus Two anyone?

It’s hardly a surprise that OnePlus are thinking about a making a second device, as the demand for their first phone has been rather high. Demand that was partially created by a ludicrous invite system and also by the fact they were offering a phone with great

Browse and travel at high speed with EE

Inateck TPB-IM iPad mini Sleeve Case Review

Do you use your iPad naked (ooooo missus, the iPad, not you) or do hide all of the Apple design inside a case ? I recently took my iPad mini out of its case and instantly remembered how thin and light the device was. I decided that’s

Adding a Joystick to your Tablet – a look at the Satzuma Joystick

A lot of mobile games have a problem to resolve, most of us are used to playing games with a physical control pad, and most Tables and Smartphones can’t provide that option. Games designers obviously provide different control mechanics to get around the lack of buttons on

LG G3 unlocked for less than £300

I do rather like the LG G3. It’s the first LG device I’ve owned in a long, long time and overall I’m very impressed. It packs a 1440×2560 5.5″ inch screen at 534ppi WiFi, Bluetooth 4, 4G and a 13 megapixel camera at the back with laser

Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact review. Greatness delivered

Here we are folks, the long awaited Xperia Z3 Tablet Review. First things first, why has it taken so long to get this review done? It’s simple really. The first tablet developed a dead pixel line from top to bottom and needed to be replaced. I also

Jolla crowd-sourced tablet smashes funding target

  Well that was fast! In less than 24 hours Jolla have smashed their target for the first crowd-sourced tablet that we originally reported on yesterday here. The initial target of the kickerstarter-like funding campaign was $380,000 and Jolla has (as of 12 oclock noon uk time

Gift Idea – How about this WikiPad?

Well now, I’m not totally sure on this thing. It starts off as a pretty decent cheap tablet – this is £69.99 and has a Tegra Quad Core CPU. There’s 16GB storage, 1GB RAM, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 7″ screen which is 1280×800. It has a
