Are you one of the lucky few (thousand) people off to the Glastonbury Festival this year? How are you planning on keeping your phone charged in the muddy campsite after filming 64 of your favorite bands and uploading them to YouTube? A backup battery is a good
With more and more devices now using USB 3 there’s always call for a hub, but charging your phone from one can be a painfully slow process. Add an external drive into the mix and things start to fall over. To solve this HooToo have created a
There’s been more than a few rumours splashing around about an Active version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, as there have been about a ‘Prime’ version. An anonymous, and very kind person has sent a pre-production Samsung handset to video blogger TK Tech News that seems to
Have you ever felt that iPad cases just aren’t bookish enough? Not in a geeky student wearing glasses and beige slacks way, I mean that they tend not to look like books. Well, you’re in luck if you have, because BUKcase have it covered… so to speak.
What’s in a name? Well, Microsoft think that there’s enough to rename Nokia’s phone division as Microsoft Mobile. In a press release today, Nokia has announced that the Microsoft phones division will finally take over the full Nokia mobile phone operation at the end of the month
Yesterday we brought you the news that Vodafone have announced the release of their own branded Smart 4 Mini Android smartphone. It’ll set you back less than a tank of petrol at £50 on pay as you go. Wow! Before you rush out to the nearest Vodafone
No sooner have the latest two HTC phones been released amongst a flood of leaks than a fresh fissure has revealed the existence of another new handset, dubbed the HTC M8 Ace. There isn’t much to go on here, apart from a photo/render that’s had the screen
Stand aside Pebble, Toq, Samsung and all you other smartphone wannabes, a true technological genius is about to rip up your business plans and take the market by storm! That’s right, Will.i.am, a musician who previously failed to revolutionise the iPhone camera with the i.am+ megapixel enhancer,
Chinese social network Weibo is awash with the news that Apple are apparently going to launch a Google Glass type accessory that will pair with any device running iOS 6 or above. A well known source from Fox Con, the company that manufactures the iPhone in China,
Archos may not be the first name you think of when it comes to buying a mobile phone, but maybe it should be on your list. I spent a fortnight in the company of the Archos 50 Oxygen to see what the French company had to offer.
OppoStyle, the only European distributor of Oppo phones and accessories, has announced today that the Oppo Find 7a will be coming to Europe “soon”. In a press release today it revealed that there will be a limited quantity of pre-orders of the Find 7a (the lower spec
You would have thought that Oppo had done enough for the time being, what with announcing the two Find 7 variants, but the engineers have been hard at work shrinking the elephantine N1 into a smaller package. This time it will have the same swivelling camera arrangement
Huawei recently revealed plans to release a dual operating system handset running Android and Windows Phone, but in our article about it we suggested that it may be unpopular with the two tech behemoths, and this could cause trouble. Now we don’t like to say that we
Archos? I know what you’re thinking: the ones who make the weird Gamepads, right? No thanks… But wait, what if I told you Archos make a quad core Android phone with a 5″ Full HD display, a 13MP camera, and costs less than £300? Still dubious? Me
Whenever anything is rumoured to be happening on April fool’s day it has to be viewed with suspicion, but when a senior manager at HTC Global Communities tweets that he’s excited about the announcement on 4.1.14, it’s worth taking note. I’m almost as excited for our 4.1.14
The Ravpower RP-PB08 is a small portable battery backup pack for charging phones when away from mains sockets. I carried one with me for a week to see how it performed with a variety of phones, and these are my findings. Good Points Size Charge level indicator
Rootmetrics, a company that gives supposedly unbiased data reports about the mobile industry, recently voted EE the best mobile provider in the UK. Vodafone, unsurprisingly, disagrees. However, rather than just grumbling into their morning coffee, management have released a statement on the company forum lambasting Rootmetrics, saying
“I like the Windows Phone platform, but I couldn’t have it as my only phone”, is something I hear all the time. Unfortunately there’s a lot of merit to that statement and, even now, I agree. Huawei has heard our gripes and is doing something about them.
You may not be fussed about the launch of the Oppo Find 7 (or you may be squirming with excitement like me), but I defy anyone to be unimpressed by the invites for the announcement event that have gone out to the Chinese press. They are so
Oppo may as well just announce its latest flagship now, because it seems like it’s hell-bent on leaking all its own data before the launch event on 19th March in Beijing! In the latest development we see confirmation of the key specs of the Find 7 scribbled
Leaky old evleaks has spoilt HTC’s party once again with a tweet consisting of the image above, and the wording: Holes. Time. Colors. Also, like its predecessor, look for M8 to arrive as a Google Play Edition. The second statement is pretty self explanatory, but the picture
Whilst Oppo is busy leaking veiled images and suspiciously high resolution photos that beat around the bush as to what its new flagship phone is going to look like, design award website Red Dot 21 has gone and published some full-frontal renders of the Find 7. The
It seems that, once again, I’ve found myself a device that splits opinion. So, the Lenovo Yoga Tablet 8 is lopsided, has a built in stand and is made by a manufacturer not known for its tablets. Let’s just say that it’s got some persuading to do!
Yota Devices is putting the big unused area on the back of their phones to an innovative use – a second screen. Hold on, I hear you say, I can only use one at a time, what’s the point of that? You’re right, of course, but Yota
