OnePlus One, touch screen problems… sound familiar?

The OnePlus One is a good phone. Heck, it’s a great phone for the price. In fact, it’s kind of like the Nexus line when you think about it. Don’t get me wrong, there are some things that were missing that could have made it an even

Google’s Project Fi to run on 2 networks

Before we start I should put in a slight caveat that this is just in America at the moment, but it is still an interesting development, especially given the network rivalry over the pond. Google are going to rent network capacity for voice, texts and data from

Three UK Network evening

Every network is pushing 4G at the moment, even the MVNOs – those networks that use the likes of O2, Vodafone, Three and EE as the back-end infrastructure but supply their own service on top. giffgaff is probably one of the most well-known, mainly due to their

MWC – Dell and their Skinny tablet

Dell are here at MWC 2015 and whilst some of you may be thinking that it is odd for this to be case it isn’t really. The reason why it is not that odd is that although they are currently not making phone hardware, Dell still have
