Coolsmartphone Podcast 228 Podcast Interrupted

Matteo and Khellan tried. They tried really hard, but when life gives you a flaky internet connection you just let the Podcast Editing Porgs do their job. Anyway, the Porgs have done a wonderful job, and will be delivering another episode next week. Happy listening!

A meeting with Three UK. The #Roadto5G

With 5G being a big point of discussion, I was kindly invited to London and given the chance to listen to the plans that Three had coming up. Joining select members of the media, I got to meet CEO Dave Dyson, and from Head of Network Strategy, Phil …

The Honor 7S – Everything you need to know

From what we can see, the Honor 7S we mentioned yesterday is so new that you can’t even buy the thing yet. What we have been told is that it’ll sell for “around $110”, which is about £82 / or €93 but you can probably round that up …

Buy a phone, run a speed test, give to charity!

Wanna donate some cash easily? Well, there’s a couple of ways we’ve found of doing it. First, the Tesco Mobile guys are donating a crisp £5 for every single pink phone which is sold until June 26th. The money goes direct to Cancer Research UK and ties in …

Razer Phone – revisited

These days technology moves so fast it can be hard to keep up with the goings on. A smartphone that is new today often gets forgotten about when the next big thing hits the market, and this seems a shame considering all the investment made making the product …

Honor 10 – Video overview

As you’ll have hopefully seen our in-depth review of the Honor 10 by now. It’s a flagship smartphone at a sensible price. However, those photos don’t do the actual paint job justice, so I’ve filmed a YouTube video to try and show you just how utterly lovely this …

Filofax eniTAB360 Tablet Stand – Review

Getting your tablet to stand on its own normally requires some sort of folio type case. You know the sort – those ones that fold back onto themselves. However, they only hold your device at one angle, which typically isn’t “just right” to view content. Plus, if you …

Honor 10 – Review

This is a confusing one, but it’s confusing in a good way. The price of this, and possibly the brand, should scream “mid-range” at you. It really should. We’re kinda hard-wired to see phones costing less than £400 as perhaps sub-standard. Perhaps it’s because those really high-end, top-of-the-range …

We won some award or something

One day we might win a really big award. After all, I’ve invested a full 16 entire years of my life writing posts for this website and we’ve got a team of crazed smartphone nutters travelling all over the place to bring you the latest chunks of smartphone …

Meizu 15 – Review

We have been following and using Meizu devices for quite a while here Coolsmartphone. I personally am a fan of the M Note series of devices from Meizu ever since the good old Meizu M2 Note. The Meizu 15 is Meizu’s flagship for 2018 which also happens to be …

Crowdville – Earn in your spare time

I’m sure we’ve all heard about crowdsourcing. Many of you will have no doubt seen our coverage of Kickstarter projects, where your money is needed to get a product or idea off the ground. However, let me introduce you to something a bit different, and something where you …

Wait a minute – another EE deal. This time even more data

Just this morning I added this EE deal which delivers 20GB for £20 per month. The only minor snag was that I then had a look at the competition and found some arguably better deals. Anyway, EE sent me a mail and said, “Hey man, have you heard …
