LG V30 pictured

The smartphone manufacturer has been keen to let us know certain bits of information about their upcoming V30 device. It’s going to have an F1.6 aperture camera with a glass lens. The dual camera setup also gets laser detection autofocus, optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization too. …

Selfie stick? Phone cover? Combined? Boom!

You want a case, but you also want a selfie stick. What to do eh? Just how are you going to take those arty shots and simultaneously annoy everyone in the surrounding area without that selfie stick? What you need, flower, is a Stikbox. It’s a world first …

Remember the HTC Re ? You can still get something like it..

It was an interesting idea. A camera, without a viewfinder, that you randomly carried around (probably with your camera-packing-phone) and generally pointed in roughly the right direction of whatever you wanted to film. We reviewed the HTC Re a couple of years back but now it’s vanished from …

Why do you need a camera in your car? Watch this..

The idea of having a dashcam would’ve seemed a bit weird some years ago but, with bad drivers and nearly everybody lying about everything nowadays, it’s good to get something that can’t be argued with. Thinkware have just launched their new full HD dashcam, which they call the …

Carl Zeiss lenses, back in Nokia devices 

Remember the Nokia devices of old? The ones equipped with the high quality ​Zeiss lenses? Together the two combined their skills to produce devices that could take stunning images. Take the 808 PureView for example, a device that still struggles to be beaten even next to the smartphones …

Honor 9 – Everything you need to know

Live from here in Berlin, we’ve got all the very latest details on the new Honor handset. The first thing you need to know is the price. It’s going to retail in the UK for a mere £379 and will be sold via Amazon, vMall and Three. The …

Honor Launch – Live

Yes, it’s me – I’m actually doing a press event. Early this morning, incredibly sore after my 340 mile ride to Edinburgh, I hopped onto a flight to Berlin. I’m now sat in a (thankfully) very comfortable seat, ready to bring you all the details of the new …

HTC U11 – Photo special

HTC have dropped out of the limelight of late. Vodafone don’t seem to be ranging any of their handsets and Three are all out of stock of the HTC 10. Whilst playing with their U Play and U Ultra it occured to me that both handsets had pretty …

Dropped action cam. What happens next will amaze you!

Yes, I’m trying a click-bait headline. Let’s get it pushed all over Facebook by some faceless SEO company and then earn stacks of cash from it, then I might be able to fix the massive hole in my kitchen ceiling shall we? I hate plumbing problems. Anyhow, there’s …

LG G6 – Review

I’ve gone through some phases with my smartphones. I switched over to Android with the HTC Hero. It was then a succession of HTC handsets before I switched to a Samsung Galaxy device, but since then I’ve been firmly glued to an LG device. The LG G3 was …

The Kitvision Immerse 360 Duo 360 Degree Camera – Review

Last November I reviewed the Kitvision Immerse 360 Action Camera for Coolsmartphone.com, and whilst generally my experience was positive, there was still plenty of room for improvement. The Kitvision Immerse 360 Duo is the latest version in the Duo range but does it improve on the original?? Let’s …

The Echo Look – An outfit decider

My wife can change into several different outfits before deciding in the right one. I’m usually the one who’s asked to help in this decision making, bit despite my advice she’ll change another few times anyway. However, Amazon are looking to replace me with this, the “Echo Look” …

OPPO F3 to feature dual front camera setup

We’ve started to see more and more smartphones coming out with three cameras instead of two. You’ll have two on the rear for wide-angle or clever RGB / monochrome detection and there’s usually one up front for selfie shots. However, Oppo want to turn that setup around with …

The Huawei P10 – First impressions and camera special

This comes on loan from EE, where it’s available for £40.99 per month with 5GB of monthly data and unlimited texts and calls. Although I’ve perhaps not totally unleashed everything it can do – I’m properly impressed so far. Out of the box, it was the build quality …

MWC – Hands-on with the Arlo Go 4G mobile camera

This one is still on pre-order but you can get it first in the US for $449.99, then you’ll need to put a SIM card in. It’s a camera that will monitor movement and, if you want, live stream from anywhere with a 3G or 4G signal. Created …

MWC – We finally got a look at the Kodak Ektra

We’ve given the press people at Kodak quite a few emails now. We’ve still not been able to borrow one, so during our trip around the Mobile World Congress we finally got a few minutes to have a look at the Ektra in the flesh. It sells for …

MWC – Hands on with the Doogee Shoot 2

Just the other day we took a look at the rather massive Doogee Y6 Max. Imagine one of those old cheap tablet devices but with less bezel and a better resolution screen. Now imagine it costing about the same amount as one of those cheap tablets but it’s …

MWC – Hands on with the Nubia Z11

This one was actually launched at IFA last year but still takes pride of place on the Nubia stand. First there’s a “Standard Edition” which comes in either silver or grey. This has 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage. It costs €499. Then you have the rather bling-tastic …

MWC – Oh wow, I’m in love! Hands-on with the Xiaomi Mi MIX

This morning I talk a walk to the China Mobile stand and there, amongst the robots and networking kit, was the Xiaomi Mi MIX we covered last year. This, though, was my first time seeing it in the flesh and .. woaha… A 6.4″ display oozes right to …
