Face off – Huawei P10 Plus and the P10

Yesterday we took a look at the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus and yes, those are the “hot” phones at the moment. You’ll no doubt see the S8 advertised no TV, on billboards and pretty much everywhere else. However, I have a certain love for the Huawei …

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 …

Going for a bike ride? Taking a shower? A bath? Perhaps you’re on a boat or you’re taking a holiday? Want some music for your travels? Well, check this new speaker out from Polk Audio. It’s the Swimmer Duo speaker and, although it’ll work fine on it’s own, …

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 …

Honor 5C – Review

You may have seen recently the little photo special our Dear Leader posted on the Honor 5c. Recently Huawei have caused significant disruption in the phone market both with their own devices and sub-brand Honor devices. Devices such as the Honor 6 Plus, the Honor 7 and the …

Hands on with the ZUK Z2 Pro – MWC Shanghai

Some of you more ardent fans may have heard of us mentioning the ZUK brand before. It’s a sub-brand of mega corporation Lenovo. Well, while I was roaming the halls of MWC Shanghai I came across the Z2 Pro and I was very keen to see what it …

Vodafone Smart Prime 7 Video walkthrough

Right, we’ve got a review of this one coming very soon indeed. However, until then we’ve got another video to show you. This is the up-rated and much thinner version of the Smart First 7 we looked at from yesterday. This is just £50 more expensive than that …

Vodafone Tab speed 6 Review

Let’s have a look at this then. First up, it’s a well-built Android 5.1.1 tablet with an 8″ 1280×800 IPS screen. Inside you’ll also find a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU plus a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front one for those selfies. GPS, Bluetooth and, of …

OnePlus X – Unboxing

Have you been thinking to yourself, “It would nice to have a handset that didn’t require a backpack or a monolithic battery”? I had the thought occur to me the other day but then instantly dismissed it as nonsense and told my brain to behave itself. Of course bigger …

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ video overview

Yesterday you’ll have hopefully seen our Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ review. It’s a big-screen phone with a sexy curved screen which can display additional information down the side of the handset. It’ll also let you hop quickly into your favourite contacts and apps. However, there’s more tricks available, …

An afternoon with the LG G4

I’ve been quite a fan of the LG G3 for a while now. Until I actually had one in my hand I’d perhaps not considered LG as an option and, to be honest, that’s a bit of a shame. The new LG G4, like the G3 before, is a …

Remix OS overview.

The other day I unboxed the Remix Ultra Tablet and posted an article with my first thoughts. I have now had a bit more time to use the tablet and I now wish to share an overview of the OS as it is very similar to the Android …

Honor 4x – Video overview

I seem to be bumping into phone bloggers who are getting widely recognised by PR people, networks and manufacturers for adding a few YouTube videos and making a couple of posts on Facebook. No website. No slaving away for hours writing huge reviews. Just a quick video, a …

ZAGGkeys Universal Keyboard – A closer look

It’s been a few days since I told you about ZAGGkeys Universal Bluetooth keyboard. The official site has it on sale for nearly £50 but eBuyer are doing it for £40. Anyhow, I’ve started to use it more and more and I’m currently using it to type this …

Unboxing of the Huawei Ascend P7 and first impressions

I have now had the Huawei Ascend P7 in my hands for a little under 12 hours and in that time I have had a play with the device properly. This includes that new “Panoramic Selfie” feature. All in all I think it is a very nice handset. …

HTC One – Video Demo and my thoughts

Here it is then, the HTC One. This huge event at the German Gymnasium in London wasn’t just a phone launch or the confirmation that the leaked M7 was indeed the HTC One. This was showing what mobile companies must do now, because all phones are getting similar …

BlackBerry Z10 – Video overview

I seem to have a got a name for myself somehow. I’m known across the t’interwebs for many things (sorry, I needed the money) but you may know me as “the guy who films videos in the car”. I’ve not done one for a while, so it’s time …

Huawei Ascend P1 Review

I’m going to start this review in a rather unconventional way. Bear with me. Straight away. Gotta admit it. This really isn’t bad. I mean sure, when I hold the Samsung Galaxy SII, then switch to this, there’s an ever-so-slight quality difference. The camera sticks out ever-such-a-little too …

A week with … the Samsung Galaxy SIII

So, this week I’ve got myself a Samsung Galaxy SIII. It’s been loaned to us from UR-Mobile and we’ll be giving you a daily dose of this hot new handset. Simply check back at 9.30 AM every day for the latest video. I’ve had quite a bit of …
