YouTube Friday – Honor 7X Review

Iron Bru, Scotland, Matteo Doni. They all go together brilliantly, so we decided to add an Honor 7X into the mix too. We’ve already had a full hands-on with the device in November and it then appeared in December. However, the price has gone down a bit now …

Honor 9 Lite – Video review

This morning I had a bit of a rant about this phone, and I’ll tell you why. I’ve been in this business since 2002. For years I’ve reviewed the “top-end” phones and a smattering of “budget Android handsets”. The latter, and let’s not beat about the bush, are …

Honor 9 vs Honor 9 Lite – The camera test… and a rant

I’m properly intrigued by these two phones. The Honor 9 has been in my pocket for many months now and I think it’s a brilliant handset. It’s £349.99 from the official UK store. The newly-announced Honor 9 Lite, on the right here, has an arguably better screen and …

Honor 9 Lite vs Honor 9

We’re lucky enough to have an Honor 9 and an Honor 9 Lite, so we figured a big batch of comparison photos was definitely worth showing. They’re both blue (here at least, you can get the 9 Lite in grey too) and they’re both shiny, but which is …

Honor 9 Lite now on sale

Want to get the Honor 9 Lite we revealed the other day? Well, now you can. Splash out £199 on the Honor Store and then get yourself a good SIM only deal. Boom. You’re done. Why they’ve called it “Lite”, I really don’t know. OK, it’s got a …

Official. The Honor 9 Lite.

A new phone, with an extremely attractive pricepoint, has just been announced in London by Honor. It’ll cost, get this, just £199.99. Why is that a big deal? Because it’s got 4 cameras? Because it’s got the nano-scale optical coating? Because of the high-end glass casing? The 5.65″ …

Honor 9 and Honor 8 Pro getting Android Oreo very soon

It’s not arrived on my Honor 9 just yet, but Honor UK tell me that the Honor 8 Pro handsets should be getting a big dose of Oreo goodness very soon indeed. The company tell me that you’ll have improved boot times, better speed, more efficiency and reduced …

Get an Honor 7X, grab yourself some in-game credit and a free case

Back in November last year we took a good look at the Honor 7X. It comes equipped with a 5.93″ (2160 X 1080) edge-to-edge “FullView” screem (at the 18:9 ratio). For £269.99 you get 4GB of memory, 64GB storage, a dual-lens 16 and 2 megapixel camera arrangement, microSD …

Honor View 10 Sample Galleries

I’ve been using the Honor View 10 for a few weeks while travelling now and working on a full review which will have another awesome video review (no pressure Lukasz…). One of the features where the Honor View 10 delivers exceptional value is in the camera department: essentially …

CES 2018 – Honor 7X will get Face Unlock soon

Face Unlock seems to be the “in thing” with phone makers right now. We have seen it being implemented very well by Apple on the iPhone X and the team over at OnePlus have put their own slant on it too. Both these “Face Unlock” Systems use very different technologies to allow …

As a start to 2018, we have gone all fancy with our video production values. Thanks to an excellent contribution of direction and editing from our friend Lukasz Suliga, we now have our exclusive Honor View 10 Preview. So, what do you think? Please let us know in …

Honor View 10 photo special

We are deep into the mid festive slump but, for some of us, work has to carry on for a few more days before the shenanigans of the New Year begin. In an effort to cheer you all up, I have been busy taking pictures of the soon-to-be-released …

Unboxing the Honor View 10

A few weeks ago I was down in good old London town where I bore witness to the latest Honor flagship. Today I have received a pre-production unit for review here at Coolsmartphone Towers. The phone is now available for preorder from the Honor website and, if it is …

Want to use Strava? Don’t get an Honor or Huawei handset

Over the years I’ve grown to love the Huawei and Honor handsets. Right now I have the Honor 9 and it’s a fantastic device for the money. Great camera, great performance and great looks. Love it, I really do. Trouble is, there’s one thing it won’t do. For …

Honor 7X – Thoughts and Unboxing

Yesterday I was allowed to leave the confines of Coolsmartphone Towers and escape into the depths of London for a few hours. During my brief sojourn into the real world, I was able to attend a small gathering of phone enthusiasts and bloggers (okay it wasn’t that small, there …

(Update) Welcome your new look. The Honor View 10

Honor have today launched their now familiar “well priced but still very, very good” handset in the shape of the Honor 7X. However, if you want to spend £449.99 and get some artificial intelligence, have a look at this – the new Honor View 10. It doesn’t look …

The Honor 7X touches down in the UK. Time to max your view..

Remember our full hands-on of the Honor 7X ? Well, time to open a bottle my friends, it’s coming to the UK and – as we suspected – it’s going to be pretty cheap too. The Honor 7X has that 5.93″ (2160 X 1080) edge-to-edge almost bezel-less screen …

Honor have got something to unveil…

Today we have travelled down to London Town to secure what it is that Honor are going to unveil to allow us to “Max our view”. We know that there will be at least the confirmation of price in the Honor 7x that was invited a few weeks …

Hands on with the Honor 7X

Good morning you wonderful people. Now, I’m going to put some information into this article and it’s totally up to you what you do with it. OK? In a few days Honor will be launching a new phone. They’re telling us how this new phone will “Max your …
