Wileyfox Spark X – Review

There was a time, not too long ago, when phones costing £139.99 were best avoided. “Android landfill” they used to call them. Cheap devices with a questionable build quality, a dire camera and wonky screen resolutions. Here, for your money you’re getting a completely network-free device with an …

Honor 5X now £139.99 at Amazon

Prime Day has been and gone. I made the most of Prime Day and ordered a magenta coloured Fire tablet for my better half and 168 pouches of cat food. Great deals! On that note, you may have not missed out on all the deals yesterday: the Honor …

Honor 5X – Review

Recently I was at the Honor 5X European launch in Munich, Germany. Since then, as well as recovering from a Red Bull Cola high, I’ve been working on the review of the Honor 5X. In this article I’ll give you my review of the hardware and my impressions. …

Meizu M2 Note – Review

Meizu is a brand not particularly well known here in the UK. Leigh recently reviewed the Meizu M1 Note, and I have been using a Meizu M2 Note for a few months now. This is my review of the Meizu M2 Note, a device purchased from Shenzhen Chigon …

Karbonn A19 now available in the UK

Wait a minute, just a few minutes ago we reviewed the dual-core 1.2GHz Karbonn A5S. It’s about £70 but, for £85.54 you can get this, the Karbonn A19. It has an ever-so-slightly faster CPU – a dual-core 1.3GHz CPU. It also has a better camera (8 megapixel instead …

Motorola Moto G 2014 – Review

  The original Motorola Moto G was a great phone, it redefined a genre, it showed people that a reasonably cheap device could offer performance and an experience similar to phones costing way more than it did. Not only did the Moto G offer a whole load of …

Acer Liquid Z3 Duo – Review

Small things have a place in life, small phones definitely do too. Not everyone wants a huge device and not everyone wants a super complicated device covered in widgets and shortcuts. Good Points DTS Audio Small and compact Several different launchers designed for kids and the elderly Dual …

A powerful, cheap smartphone? Set yourself free

Regular readers will know that I’ve ditched my long-standing Orange contract mobe and switched to a rolling monthly deal instead. The benefits are that I’m not hooked into a 2-year deal, I’m spending less because I’m not subsidising that “free” handset, and I can hop to another network …

Prestigio MultiPhone PAP4500 Duo – Review

Now and again I like to try something a little different. Be it food, clothes, holidays, new words or just mobile phones. This weeks review is exactly that, something different. Prestigio have been selling tablets for a while now and recently they’ve branched out into Smartphones. There range is …

Acer Liquid E1 Duo now in stock

Once again another Dual SIM phone appears on the market and my imagination runs riot. The prospect of not having to carry two phones around all day gets my temperature racing. The fact it is made by Acer also means it will probably be well made, in the past I’ve had my …

Samsung Galaxy S DUOS now in stock

Dual Sim phones seem to be making a bit of a comeback. Back in the day you used to be able to get Windows Mobile devices with two SIMs. Then they just disappeared, bar a few low end ones from Viewsonic. Then the other week we reviewed the …

Acer Liquid Gallant Duo – Initial Impressions

For a while using a phone with two sim cards in has been a bit of a holy grail for me. I could use my normal sim for making calls and my Giff Gaff SIM for my data requirements. Sounds fairly straightforward but various manufacturers have tried their …

Sony Xperia Tipo – Dual SIM Smartphone

We have recently seen a couple of announcements regarding dual sim phones and whilst these are popular in some parts of the world they have yet to make an impact here in Blighty. Sony have decided however that there is a market for such a device and as …

HTC Desire V brings us dual-SIM action

Yeah I know, I bet you thought that we’d only see the “One” handsets from HTC this year. Wrong. Since the HTC One X, HTC One V and HTC One S appeared we’ve seen the HTC Desire C and now this, the slightly confusing HTC Desire V. I …

ViewSonic Dual-SIM V350 – Up close

Today we sat down for a chat with ViewSonic. They’re tucked away somewhat but we wanted to see the dual-SIM phone and dual-boot tablet. After being hurried upstairs and given free beer we took a look first at the ViewSonic V350. This is the dual-SIM device and, straight …
