MWC – Huawei Ascend Mate hands on

Looks like large phones are in fashion for a lot of people these days with the Samsung Note 2 being a big seller here in the UK and of course around the world. We have seen a few slightly larger phones here at MWC but none bigger than …

MWC – Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Demo

The Samsung stand this year is huge. I really mean it. HUGE. I’m sure it almost has it’s own postcode and takes up around a quarter of one of the halls. The picture above doesn’t really do it justice – I couldn’t fit it in the shot if …

Up-close and personal with the Nexus 7

So, we’ve seen the launch, the stock pictures and the press releases. Now we’ve got the thing in our hands, so we figured you’d like to see what the new Google tablet actually looked like in the flesh. No computer-generated mock-ups here. We’ve got stacks of shots taken …

Blue Samsung Galaxy SIII in video

So, as you’ll have probably seen from the previous story, we have ourselves not one but TWO Galaxy SIII handsets. One in white and the other in pebble blue. I’ve filmed a quick couple of videos to show the blue handset in the flesh, so click on to …

HTC One S Review

The HTC One S is the slimmer, ever-so-slightly-less-powerful brother of the HTC One X. It’s got a 4.3″ screen with 960×540 pixel screen. I say “slightly less powerful” but heck, a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU is still ruddy good. Powered by Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0, it uses …

MWC – Xperia U – Up close

Although we were at the launch, we thought you’d appreciate yet more up-close shots of the Xperia U. The Xperia NXT range goes down in screen size. The Xperia S has a 4.3″ screen (720×1280), the Xperia P has a 4″ and this here is the baby of …

MWC – Lumia 610 Hands On Photos

Although announced at MWC on Monday, today was my first real chance to spend time with the Nokia Lumia 610 which is their new low end Windows Phone. With lower specs will come a lower price and on testing Nokia found 95% of the apps worked on a …

MWC – ZTE Era Up close

The sheer amount of handsets over on the ZTE stand is almost mind-boggling. We managed to hunt down their new ZTE Era for a bit of hands-on time. Unfortunately the battery was flat, but we consoled ourselves with some serious up-close action (OK, I need some sleep now). …

MWC – LG Optimus 3D Max – Up close

We thought initially that Android 4.0 would be arriving as part of an update, but LG have this running Ice Cream Sandwich on the stand and they tell me it’ll hit the shops with ICS too. The Max features a 1.2GHz CPU with “tri-dual technology” (dual core, channel …

MWC – LG Optimus L5 – Up close

The Optimus L5 is part of the new L-Style range from LG. The version we snapped here looked really good in white and there’s a definite quality feel about it. It’s in the middle of their range – the L3 is the entry-level, this is more mid-tier and …

Nokia 800 leaks again..

It’s now getting really close to the Nokia 800 launch and yet more “leaks” are appearing. This time there’s a super up-close render of the new Nokia Windows Phone lovechild, and Nokia badly need it to succeed based on their recent drop in operating profit. The 800, which …
