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

You want a serious amount of online storage?

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

What’s on the end of your stick? Oh, it’s your phone.

Yes, you really are seeing this. That “joke picture” circling around the internet featuring a guy holding his phone on the end of a stick is an actual product. It’s called the Me-Shot Deluxe and, to be fair, is a bit more than just a big stick.

More shots of the LG G3 leak

Cat photos overtake ‘selfies’

Not too many years ago we were amazed at the thought of having a 1 megapixel camera on our mobile phone. Little did we know where all this was heading. If you think the current ‘selfie’ ¬†craze was big, it seems people sharing cat photos is even

Android App Review – Focus photo sharing

Don’t you just hate it when you hand your phone to a friend to have a look at a picture you’ve taken and they then start looking through the rest of your shots? Well there’s an app for that now. Focus photo sharing deals with this exact

Just what were you doing on Christmas morning?

Every now and then, usually when I’m just falling asleep, I have mad ideas for the site. I tried to stick a smartphone to my car once to try and create a cheap version of the GoPro sports camera. It didn’t work. The phone fell off somewhere

HTC Desire 500 – Photo Special

Take yourself a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, 4GB of on-board storage (plus a microSD card slot for more space) and a 4.3″ WVGA screen. Sounds good so far. Add a dash of GPS, a 3.5mm audio port, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA, WiFi and the Beats Audio technology. All this

Time to sell the standalone camera?

For years now many have said that a phone camera will never replace a normal standalone digital camera. However, has that now changed with the introduction of smartphones such as the Nokia 808 PureView, Samsung S4 Zoom and the 41 megapixel Lumia 1020? These new advanced low-light

HTC One mini comparison photos

We’ve got a few precious days with the ever-so-slightly-smaller brother of the HTC One. Sure, the CPU, memory and storage on the HTC One mini is not quite as good as the bigger HTC One, but it’s still a gorgeous looking handset which packs the BoomSound technology,

Nokia Lumia 925 tours New York

Recently I went on a holiday I have always wanted…. a week in New York. I was also lucky enough to have a Lumia 925 on me at the time (big thanks to Nokia Connects). The camera is really good at low-light photos and the PureView technology
