MWC – THAT new BlackBerry. Hands-on with the KEYone

This was tucked away around the back of the Alcatel stand but there was no shortage in interest. It’s a bit of a heavy thing at 180g and we’ve already posted a BlackBerry KEYone gallery after it leaked all over the place last Saturday morning. This one is …

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 – Samsung Galaxy S8 leaked image

The one device we’ve not seen here is the much anticipated Samsung Galaxy S8. Although Samsung did have a press conference, and although they have a massive stand here, the S8 hasn’t shown up. Until now.. Serial leaker @evleaks has just posted this image, which has the date …

Samsung Galaxy S8 handsets leaked

The grand-master of the phone leakers, Evan Blass, has just dropped this little nugget on Twitter. It’s the new Galaxy S8 from Samsung.. When I say “it”, there’s actually going to be two phones. Gone are the navigation buttons you’ve grown used to in previous Samsung Galaxy handsets …

Fancy a Selfie Ring ?

Christmas seems to have just flown by, and somehow we’re just days away from February. During the festive season, as part of the regular “works Christmas do”, I got to go to the Zulu Sundance party  at the NEC in Birmingham. It was definitely different, and you’re met …

Honor 6X First Impressions

First impressions matter. Or so we are led to believe. My Honor 6X arrived today and I’ve wasted no time taking it out of its box and popping my SIM and a memory card into it. The things I do for Coolsmartphone.com and you readers. The Honor 6X …

The Honor handsets are helping to cause problems for Android manufacturers wanting to price their phones highly. As part of Huawei, the Honor handsets deliver all the Huawei technology but at a crazily competitive price. This is the Honor 5C. A phone you can buy for £149.99 unlocked. …

Huawei P9 – Camera test and up-close images

Yesterday we reported live from the Huawei #OO launch and it quickly became apparent that the “double OO” referred to the double lens setup of the new Leica camera at the rear of the P9 and the P9 Plus. First, the difference between the two phones. The P9 …

3 in 1 Lens Set – Review

Taking snaps on your phone is something everybody does. Taking artistic ones, well… that’s maybe a bit tricky unless you have something like this. Now, you may have seen these clip-on lens gadgets before. It’s a simple idea. You use a clip which is almost like a soft …

Nexus 6P – Night shot special

I’ll be honest and say that this is a bit of a quick and dirty post. See, I had a read of our Nexus 6P review and I’ve had chance to borrow one. I’ve been using the phone to take some photos, including some of the ones used …

Sony Xperia Z3+ – Photo Special

Today we were lucky enough to get hands on with Sony’s new flagship the Xepria Z3+. This is a really nice evolution of the Z3 and one that would make a nice upgrade from anyone who is using a Xperia Z or Xperia Z2. It is also a …

LG G Flex2 – Photo special

Way back in March 2014, before I started going grey after typing a ber-zillion posts a week, I took a look at the banana-shaped G Flex from LG. What they were basically trying to do was make an impact. People had seen the same old political parties slab-shaped …

Smartphones – Killing conversation, stopping friendships.

You guys come here, hopefully, because you love your gadgets and smartphones. Even those who don’t have a vested interest in the latest technology probably still have a smartphone of some kind, and they’re probably more than capable of surfing the web, getting Facebook updates and plugging themselves …

Drivers fined for snapping photos whilst driving

Picture the scene. You’ve been held up in traffic for ages. You’ve got sunburn from the brake lights of the car in front. Eventually, after shuffling along on the motorway for what seems like hours, you see the cause of your misery. A truck, on it’s side and …

You want a serious amount of online storage?

Whether you’ve got a big microSD card in your phone or you’ve got plenty of on-board storage, backing your stuff up to the cloud is always a good idea. There’s a big selection of online storage providers, or you can get yourself a NAS drive and backup those …

Up-close with the LG G Watch

Packing an always-on display, 400mAh battery (which is enough for a day of activity) and powered by Android Wear, this is the LG G Watch. It’s both dust and water resistant, plus you can just say “OK Google” to ask it questions, such as “Come on KITT buddy, …
