Huawei P10 – SIM-free just £399.99

As you’ll know if you read my impressions of it, I loved the Huawei P10. I really, really didn’t want to give the thing back. With a lot of smartphones now becoming fairly similar with their specs, I’m always on the look-out for three key points… A good …

Got a fiver? Grab a SIM-only 1GB plan here.

OK, I’ve got to be quick with this one as iD Mobile have, after pushing out lots of bonkers adverts, gone a bit nuts with this one particular deal and I’m going to make the most of it. If you’re looking for a low-cost SIM-only plan for a …

Quick Friday offer for SIM only data junkies

I’ll keep this brief, because I’m hopefully talking to those who want a massive slice of data on a network with great coverage. This one is with Virgin Mobile, who use EE. Their SIM-only offer will give you a massive 20GB of data plus 5000 minutes and unlimited …

More iPhone X contract deals

Looking for the iPhone X prices? Need to know just how much you need to put aside for that early Christmas present to yourself? Well, a contract deal will ease the pain a little, and we’ve already had a look at the Vodafone iPhone X pricing. However, there’s …

US cellular Apple Watch 3 won’t work in the UK

In just a couple of weeks I’m heading off Stateside for my annual hols. So, as I normally visit the Apple shop, I thought I’d pick up a bargain. I had devised, in the famous words of Baldrick, “a cunning plan”. I was to buy a new Series …

Want a new iPhone, but don’t want to pay a crazy price?

OK yes. The iPhone 8 is a great phone. The iPhone X is an even better phone. But if your son, daughter or significant other wants one of these, it’s a LOT of money to be spending. Take, as an example, the iPhone X pricing we covered recently. …

STK now available in John Lewis too.

Morning, morning all. It’s Thursday already so we’ve nearly made it to the weekend. Remember STK? They were once a distribution company before becoming an accessories brand and then a mobile phone manufacturer selling well-priced feature and smartphones. Designed in London, we last saw the handsets arriving in …

Vodafone Smart V8 Unboxing

Newsflash. I have a problem. Once upon a time we’d get budget, network-branded phones delivered to the Coolsmartphone HQ and they would be.. for want of a better word.. crap. Now they’re not. They’re really not, and when I see someone walking around with a “big name” budget …

Vodafone E8 now available – Just £49 too!

OK, let me set out my stall first. This, the Smart E8, isn’t going to be faster than the likes of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 or the HTC U11. Likewise, it’s not going to have as much on-board memory or storage. But… but.. it’s not over £600. …

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 …

Vodafone Smart N8 now available

Vodafone have today launched their latest own-vranded smartphone, the Smart N8. In a time where you don’t need to spend a fortune to get a great feature-packed device, Vodafone have been producing some of the best for a while now. This is the latest in the range and, …

DOOGEE Mix shrinks the bezel. Cheap too.

OK. I’ve caved. The PR people for DOOGEE have mailed me each and every single day for months now. The daily updates range from orchestrated “leaks” and “rumours”, so it’s difficult to know when an actual handset has been announced because I’m buried in their mails. Today though, …

Nokia 3310 – Buy now on Vodafone

The Nokia 3310, even with its slightly newer skin, might seem a bit “old tech” for some. However, it could be just the thing for your summer holiday. For just £39 (when purchased with £10 “Big Value Bundle”), you won’t mind losing it on the beach or out …

Doro 6050 feature phone now available to buy

Remember Mobile World Congress? I certainly do. Let’s be honest, we here at Coolsmartphone don’t have the same budget as The Times or The Guardian, so I ended up stopping in a camper van, parked up in a local street. It was definitely an … experience. However, we …

Cutting the cord. Trying to kill off my landline.

Now, I’ll admit, I’m a penny pincher at times. If there’s a cheaper way of doing something, even if it’s a bit geeky, I’ll give it a go. Stick with me on this one, because it involves something that Virgin have just announced which I think is a …

Honor 8 Pro now available to pre-order

Our very own Matteo had some hands-on time with the Honor 8 Pro and he was so impressed that he ended up ordering one for himself. That’s saying something. So now, following all the specs and details plus our bulging gallery of Honor 8 Pro pictures, we’ve got …

Get the LG G6 with giffgaff a week before release

Look at me. I’ve got me an LG G6. Aren’t I all big and clever? I get phones first. I’m so amazing. Wait though… it’s not like that at all. In fact, I get phones on loan for a few days or a couple of weeks, then I …

Those budget Android smartphones. Now even cheaper.

The price of smartphones seems to be going in two different directions at the moment. At the top end, the likes of the iPhone 7 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 will see you paying more and more for your flagship mobile. At the bottom end, something else is …
