Mr Bet Review

There is, without doubt, a lot of competition out there when it comes to gaming. The truth is, if you’re watching TV after 9PM, you’re going to see a lot of casino ads and they will target the fact that you can use your smartphone. Your phone is …

Xiaomi announce new Mi Mix 3 offer coming soon

Remember recently we brought you the news the new Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 was heading to the UK? Well it must have been a huge success with the £50 off limited offer sold in just 28 minutes! To make sure customers are not left disappointed, Xiaomi have announced …

So, you want something different?

How about a folding phone then eh? Yep. Interested aren’t you? Me too! The ability to extend the display ad-hoc is definitely something I’d like to try out, although a piece of me thinks that there must be some sort of creasing on those edges after you’ve folded and …

Honor View20 – Review

I’ll be honest, Huawei and Honor seem to be cranking up the handset launches to a rate where I’m losing track slightly. Honor, let’s not forget, is a sub-brand of Huawei. You get the same quality, the same Huawei processor and the same user interface, albeit with a …

Honor View20 Announced. Spot the difference?

We’re here live in Paris and, just now, the Honor View20 has been announced. Known also as the V20 (you’ll see the letter “V” on the back too, it’s got a few things going for it. For a start, there’s a selfie camera, but it’s actually in the screen. It …

Live from Paris. See The Unseen with Honor.

Well, the lid kinda got blown off this one already, but no matter – we’re here in Paris to see the hot new flagship from Honor for real. As is usual, we’ll be bringing you live coverage via our Twitter account, which we’ve handily embedded here for you. …

Keep it locked. Complete Honor View20 coverage. Live.

Later today we’ll be at a phone launch. Nothing really different about that, it’s something we’ve done for years. However, this is the launch event for the Honor View20, and this phone has a bit of a cool trick up it’s sleeve. Actually, I should tell you that …

Windows Mobile – Yep, still dead.

Back in 2016 I stated that Windows Phone, or Windows Mobile, or whatever you wanted to call it, was dead. The article caused a bit of a stir, but hey – it was true. Still is. The short version was that, whilst the GUI and the experience was …

Make a successful home business with this 2019 idea list

If you’re looking for a secondary job or you want to do something part time, it’s now perhaps easier than ever. The guy that fixes and services my bike for example. He has a van. He has a mobile phone and a load of tools. That, and a …

Here’s a Kickstarter campaign that will totally fail

Well, I say it’ll fail, but I laughed when Donald Trump ran for President. So, perhaps I could be wrong. At the moment though, it’s looking like this particular idea isn’t getting a huge amount of cash. As I type, only 10 people have pledged and there’s nearly …

Wait, what exactly is a VPN and why do I need it?

Keeping yourself safe online. It’s something that you know you should do, but you either rely on someone else to protect you or you haven’t had the time. Just a few years ago, mention a “VPN” and literally nobody would know what you were talking about. They were …

RevoNext introduces its RX6-Sport

The catchy title sounds like a sports car but in fact, RevoNext has launched the RX6-Sport dual driver in-ear earphones and detachable Bluetooth cable which are perfect for any fitness or sports lover. The inner-ear hook stops the earbuds falling out on those very sweaty runs with noise cancellation to …

Apple releases new battery cases for the XR, XS an XS Max

Apple news is often few and far between so the release of several new battery cases is moderately noteworthy!  Older iPhones already have these, but Apple has now released battery cases for its latest handsets, the XR, XS and XS Max.  Each case comes with wireless charging built-in …

Charge your phone with an avocado!

OK, so it’s not a real avocado, but mis-leading click-bait headlines is how journalism works, isn’t it? This thing isn’t going to fully recharge your phone – it’s more of a top-up device as there’s only a 2200mAh battery in it. You charge it off the mains and …

Is Google Maps making us drive more sensibly?

Yesterday I made a slight error. It’s something I’ve done before, when I strangely only allocated myself 2 hours to drive from Heathrow Airport to Stoke. I did it again, but this time I was driving back from Reading. I knew I wouldn’t get back in time. I’d …

Palm – My thoughts on the mini-smartphone

This diddy smartphone is on Vodafone and you can get one here for £31 per month. In the USA this has been sold as a “companion phone” which I can sort of understand. See, I’m a little confused. It’s like Brexit in a way. There’s really no middle …

The Honor View20 – Look closely. Notice something?

Creating a phone that looks a bit “different” is definitely in the interests of most phone manufacturers, however if you do there’s the risk that the phone isn’t going to be as popular. So, there’s smaller but rather cool tweaks happening to new phones now, and although they’re …

Cycling glasses with a HUD. Meet Raptor.

Over the last few years I’ve become one of those Lycra-clad cyclists. It all started because I was basically getting out of breath running up the stairs and suddenly I figured, “Wait, that can’t be good”. A few weeks later I’d got myself a cheap mountain bike and …
