MWC – Doogee S90 shown off

Just before I left MWC I was able to see one last phone and this was one that I was particularly interested in. It is from a company called Doogee, which is a Chinese brand that has been specialising in making ruggedised phones. They have been doing this for a while …

MWC – Are you on a stand or booth? Give us a shout!

OK, we’ve not done this before. Let’s give it a try. If you’ve paid a lot of money to get a presence at Mobile World Congress and want some coverage here, hit our contact page right now. Here in Barcelona there’s lots of huge halls, so trying to …

MWC – Cosmo Communicator and Gemini Updates

Last year we had the pleasure of being introduced a new device to the market in the form of the Gemini, which I was able to put through its paces in an extensive test for a few weeks. I was very impressed by it but unfortunately, with it …

MWC – Huawei P30 Pro appears

A strange one this. The upcoming P30 Pro flagship, which hasn’t been launched, got shown off to Digital Trends today. However, there were a few caveats. First, they couldn’t take a photo of the front, second, it wasn’t actually the real device – it was actually a dummy …

MWC – Meet the nubia Alpha wearable phone

We’ve seen foldable phones in Barcelona, and – in years past (actually, it was 2016!) – we’ve seen flexible displays. The latter was actually first brought to our attention as a possible wearable by FlexEnable but they didn’t have the necessary capacity to make it a full-on production …

MWC – Up close. The Samsung Galaxy S10.

I’m kinda on the fence with the wide slit on the back of this thing. Sure, I like cameras and yes, all the phones here seem to be brimming with them, but the letterbox shape on the back is a bit distracting for me, especially with some of …

MWC – Up close. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3

So, 5G, right? For £499? Well, that’ll tick a few boxes with a lot of people methinks. The Mi Mix 3 is showing right now on the Mi.com site and she slides baby. She slides. That 6.39″ Full HD+ Samsung AMOLED has a 19.5:9 aspect at 2340 x …

MWC -3MK have new cases to show us

So we know that 3MK make some awesome screen protectors that we saw last year whilst we were here. Since then I have been using their screen protection for my various phones since then. They have not let me down and survived the various trails and tribulations that …

MWC – Up close. The Xiaomi Mi 9

She’s got a waterdrop notch and will be available in lavender violet, ocean blue or a piano black. You’ll get yourself a transparent one too, and no matter how real or not real that whole CPU / NFC rear-end is, we still like staring at it like crazy. …

MWC – HTC unveil their 5G hub

There was a time when HTC were doing big phone launches here in Barcelona. No longer. Instead this morning they’ve unveiled a new HTC 5G Hub. There wasn’t a big event or a launch here this morning. Instead it’s just a few pictures and a press release. No …

MWC – More flexible screens from TCL

So while having a wander of the booths we came across the TCL booth and on the inside of this booth, we saw some very cool looking folding screens. It turns out that TCL has been working with sister company CSOT in the development of flexible screen tech …

MWC – Sony launch Xperia 10 and Xperia 10+

As we have mentioned in our article about the Xperia 1, Sony where also announcing two other devices today at MWC19. These came in the form of the Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus. These devices are lower tier devices than the flagship Xperia 1  The key feature that …

MWC – Sony Xperia 1 launched

Sony, remember them? Yeah. We love their kit but they don’t seem to get the exposure or success that manufacturers such as Huawei and Samsung enjoy. Just now, just minutes ago, they announced the Xperia 1, their new flagship. Two mid-range handsets were also shown off in the …

MWC – LG brings us a foldable too.

Yesterday we brought you news of the LG V50, which is a new 5G phone being picked up by EE in the UK and Sprint in the USA. It’s got a 6.4″ QHD+ OLED FullVision Display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and DTS:X sound technology. It’s powered by a …

MWC – The LG G8 and LG G8s

Last year things got a bit “weird” with the LG G7 here in Barcelona. It appeared, but apparently wasn’t mean to appear, and then things got a bit strange. This year it seems a little better. There’s not one G8, but two. Both have the Thin Q name …

MWC – Vodafone and EE to carry the Huawei Mate X

Here in Barcelona it’s all about foldable phones so far. Samsung did their big launch a few days ago but then Huawei came along and gave us this.. A 4500mAh battery, 5G connectivity, super-fast charging, a power switch and fingerprint reader in one, Leica camera tech and that …

MWC – EE confirmed to range LG V50

In a busy day for the mobile industry, EE have just confirmed the LG V50 that was just announced in Barcelona will be coming to their 5G network. In the USA you’ll be seeing it on Sprint. With a 6.4″ display, the V50 will be a great phone …
