iPhone 8 mock-ups reveal a beautiful phone… maybe

Many of my friends are still holding on to their rather dented and slightly battered iPhone handsets. They’ve dodged the iPhone 7, some have even skipped the iPhone 6s, in anticipation of the “big one” – the iPhone 8. Rumours are always to be taken with a large …

Honor 8 – Black Friday discount special

We’re quickly heading towards the credit-card bashing Black Friday sales and, amongst the emails this morning, I spotted that Honor were getting ready to drop their already-cheap Honor 8 to just £299 on Friday. The handset, which normally retails at £369.99, has two 4-core processors, a 5.2″ Full …

Honor 8 – Everything you need to know

I like Honor. They’re clever, produce good handsets and they price them sensibly. In certain ways it’s like the early days of branded HTC handsets. HTC were always keen to show us their kit and they wanted to impress. They were proactive and eager. Now Honor are doing …

The death of Windows Phone. Market share sinks further.

Say what you like about my Windows Phone tirade, it’s all sadly true. Call it what you want – Windows 10 mobile, Windows Phone, I’m angry at how easily Microsoft let their lead slip. I’m annoyed at how slowly they realised. I’m frustrated at how they treated the …

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 decided …

Lenovo Tab S8 review

Today we have a wealth of tablets in all shapes and sizes. You can choose between Windows 8, Android or iOS 8. There’s pretty much a flavour for anyone. I’m a fan of the smaller form factor and as a result I have swung toward the iPad Mini …

Windows Phone Update 3 Improvements revealed

With the Windows Phone sales share figure rising (at least, according to Kantar) and more than 175,000 apps now available, things are looking a little better for Windows Phone. Update 3, as it’s now known, has a number of improvements. Not only that, but there’s a developer preview …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 – Review

Tablets are becoming more and more popular these days with new features and different screen sizes allowing for all types of customer. Small tablets are great for travelling and for taking to work, where as the larger ones can almost act as a laptop replacement for lots of …

An updated version of Windows Phone 8 is on the horizon and GDR3, as it’s known, will contain a number of minor improvements. The rumoured changes include 1080p resolution support, the ability to have 3 medium-sized tiles in a row, orientation lock and a “Driver Mode” which will …

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is now available

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is an interesting device, as an 8″ device with the S-Pen it intrigues me, yet the slightly mediocre spec and the usual selection of Samsung software also appeals/worries me. The Galaxy Note 8.0 hasn’t exactly been pushed as much as the S4 and …

Windows 8 “No better than Vista”

Are you using Windows 8? Do you know anyone that is? Most people, it seems, are ditching traditional PC’s and are instead going for Android tablets, iPads or other devices. Now Jun Dong-soo, who is president of Samsung’s memory chip division, has really stuck the boot in about …

MWC – Exclusive photo of the Microsoft stand

The Microsoft stand this year took a very different appearance. It’s relatively small and carpeted, but has no logos, staff or products on display. The same can be said for the Android / Google stand, which is similarly sparse with a distinct lack of free drinks and snacks …

LG to show their Tablet – Notebook hybrid at MWC

Ahead of our RyanAir flight, I am packing my very small and lightweight bag ready for Mobile World Congress. This year, if I’m honest, we’ve seen more and more companies launching their phones outside of the event. This gives us chance to cover even more gadgets and companies …

ZTE announce the V81 8″ Jelly Bean tablet

Another day closer to MWC and another product that’s meant to be on show soon. This time it’s the turn of ZTE. Spec wise it seems to be a pretty basic device, which begs the question”why bother” neither high end or entry level. Here are the specs: Size  …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 snapped already?

We’re expecting Samsung to reveal an 8″ version of the Galaxy Note this year at MWC (last year, you may remember, it was all about the 10.1″ model) and now there’s some apparent photos of the device over on dday.it. The snaps seem to have been taken accidentally-on-pupose …

HTC 8S – Review

The HTC 8S was a phone I wanted to be good, REALLY REALLY good. I wanted it to be the phone that showed those LG Nexus 4 toting people that you didn’t need a huge great quad core CPU or 2GB of RAM to have a damn good …

Windows Phone 8 gets Skype

Much has been made about the fact that Skype, now owned by Microsoft, hasn’t been available for Windows Phone 8 at launch. However, a little late but better than never, it’s available – albeit in a preview version. You should be able to grab it through the Windows …
