LG G5 rumour roundup

It’s been apparent for a while that you don’t really have a product to release if there aren’t leaks of it before you’re ready to announce. This time it was LG’s turn with the up and coming LG G5, due to be announced on Feb 21 (the

Shatterproof Moto X Force priced up

Fancy a handset with a shatterproof screen? It should be appealing for those of you with the infamous “dropsies” :) Our main man Garry has already unboxed the Moto X Force and you can see his video below, however it’s now showing up on Carphone Warehouse with

The Asus Zenfone Max ZC550KL – The details

Announced last year and available now, but it’s flown pretty low beneath the radar. Inside there’s a 5000 mAh battery, which makes it deserving of that “Max” name straight away. Big battery, big battery life. Even when used intensively, this puppy is said to last more than

Samsung Galaxy S7 – Supposed leaked image surfaces

Ahead of the launch event on February 21st there’s rumours about what the next Samsung Galaxy S7 will look like.  This could be anything really, but the plastic curved back doesn’t really light our candle – especially when Samsung went all “premium” with the S6 construction. Either

Android Turing Phone now with less Android

I have a thing for the weird and occasionally wonderful. The Turing Phone sits in the first category, and I am sincerely hoping that it will fall into the second category. Google, and by extension, its Android partner ecosystem weren’t afraid to try new things in the

Kingston Digital announces two new versions of MobileLite Wireless

When you think memory card solutions, Kingston Digital will no doubt be on your list. Today, Kingston Digital announce two additions to its Wireless family with MobileLite Wireless G3 and MobileLite Wireless Pro.

The Honor 5X arrives in Europe. All the details, right here.

I’ve got to admire Honor. Yes, they’re “really” a brand from Huawei but that, in a way, just makes them even better in my book. They deliver good phones at good prices and that’s something that you can’t really argue with. The Honor 5X has already appeared

We’re here, live in Germany, for the announcement of another well-priced marvel from Honor. All the latest news and our thoughts will be added to the live blog below, so keep an eye on the updates. Be warned: Matteo may make a few comments about mockodile too…

Google Play Music + Podcasts

A long time ago (in a galaxy far far away… no, not really) in the early days of Android, there was an app called Google Listen. This was one of the earliest podcasts apps. It was really popular and I used to really like it. Why? Because

LG Mobile readies the G5

I don’t know about you, but upcoming phone models are a bit easy to guess. The next HTC One? It’s got to be the M10. The next Samsung Galaxy? That’ll be the S7. So it’s with little surprise to anyone that the next premium device from LG

Google Hangouts losing SMS

Remember Google Talk? Well all those years ago when Android first launched it was the simply the instant messaging app. To be honest I don’t think take-up was that big, but over the years Google Talk was replaced with “Hangouts”, and we all got used to calling

Microsoft swipes SwiftKey. We have the exclusive boardroom transcript *

Well. I guess there’s some sort of logic to this. Perhaps there was a meeting at Microsoft that went something like this… “Hey guys, you bought Swype didn’t you?” “No, not yet. We bought Skype…” “Ohh bugger. I thought we’d bought that software keyboard company…” “No, we

HTC One M10 Rumours for MWC 2016

It has been no secret that HTC didn’t get the response they want with the HTC One M9 in comparison to their previous flagship models. They have trailed behind Samsung and Apple recently in sales however the HTC One A9 hasn’t done too bad. Now we are

WhatsApp grabs one billion users

Well, personal experience already led me to think that WhatsApp was becoming pretty commonplace, but now we’ve got the figures to back it up. The messaging app now has one billion users sharing 42 billion messages per day, 1.6 billion photos and 250 million videos.   To get

Got a HTC One M8 mate? You could be getting Marshmallow soon

We’re hearing on the grapevine (or, rather, via you lot on our contact page), that the HTC One M8 is starting to get some hot Marshmallow action right now. Not only that, but we’ve also got unconfirmed reports that the newer HTC One M9 is receiving the

Mobile Phone sales compared for 2015/6

In the last week or so we’ve seen a number of different companies release their 2015 sales figures.  Any guesses who was the highest selling manufacturer of 2015??  Read on and all shall be revealed… Perhaps the biggest, or at least most cited, story last week was

Moto X Force – Unboxing

Today is an exciting day. I have received a new phone to review. One that comes with a very bold claim. It apparently has a shatterproof screen. Yes, I’m talking about the new Moto X Force. This is a phone that, at first glance, looks unassuming and mild-mannered.

Two LG Flagships in 2016?

Mobile World Congress is drawing closer and the inevitable rumour mill starts picking up pace. Also at this time of the year though we get a variety of figures from the companies regarding revenue and profits for the preceding year. Apples figures are eagerly awaited (even the
