Honor deals for the upcoming Bank Holiday

Apparently there’s another Bank Holiday coming up. In all honesty, I’m having enough problems keeping track of the days on lockdown, so chucking a Bank Holiday into the mix really isn’t going to make much of a difference. Anyhoo, Honor are offering up some deals on their smartphones, …

Honor 20 Pro – Review

So you’ve decided that you want to get a top-end smartphone, but you don’t have a spare £800 down the back of the sofa. Well, the good news is that you do have a lot of options these days. You have the likes of OnePlus and Xioami, alongside …

Honor 20 Pro – First Impressions

Now, normally this is where I would be talking about the unboxing of a new phone and would introduce you to video where I do just that. However, in the case of this phone, I’ll be doing something more. The reason is quite simple. It has been done …

Honor juggle their marketing messages

There has always been a perceived notion amongst the older generation that young people use their phones too much. On the flip-side, the younger generation seem to think that the older generation don’t use them enough due to lack of understanding. This, as with most perceived notions, is …

Honor 20 Pro to launch here in the UK on Thursday

We were there back in May when it was announced and we’ve shown you all around the phone. It’s got a 48 megapixel AI-powered quad camera, the powerful Kirin 980 processor and a 6.26″ “All View Display” with a stunning 91.6% screen-to-body ratio. The four lenses include a …

How popular is repairing your own phone?

Let me tell you a story. Right now I have a poorly Honor View20. It’s a fantastic phone and I wanted to enjoy the rather cool rear panel. It reflects and bends the light as it hits, displaying a “V-shaped” shimmer which looks incredibly cool. To enjoy this …

Honor View20 – Price drop. Get one. Go on, get one.

I bloody loved this phone. In fact, I think I loved it too much. After giving it a glowing review I somehow broke the thing. Honestly, I was proper gutted when “a small chip” on the corner of the phone turned into a screen-filling shatter. Nightmare. Proper decent …

Honor 20 – Unboxing and mini-review

About a month ago, on a day as similarly hot as it is today, I was down in London attending the launch and announcement of the Honor 20 series. Whilst I was there I was mostly focused on the biggest brother in the lineup – the Honor 20 …

Huawei goes 5G. Welcome in, the Mate 20 X

A mobile phone company called Huawei announced a phone late last night. You might not have heard about them because they’re hardly ever in the news 🙂 Thing is, this is a 5G phone, and it’s a first for the company. The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is …

Honor 20 Pro official images appear

We know that the new Honor 20 Series is coming on May 21st, but – rather interestingly – they’ve decided to let us take a look at the phone ahead of the actual launch. The official image is above. That’s a bit weird, sure, but if you notice …

New HONOR 20 Series incoming

The naming convention is getting me a little confused this early on a Monday morning. We’ve already had the excellent Honor View20, which I reviewed here and loved. Now, though, it looks like there’ll be more “20 Series” phones coming soon. Honor have put out this launch notification …

Easter discounts on Honor handsets

Seen my Honor View20 review? Like the Desktop Mode and the long battery life? Well, if you want it and you can pay up front, you’ll be glad to hear that there’s a time-limited discount on this particular device. It means that you can get a stonking 128GB …

Honor View20 – Stellar battery life

I mentioned how good the Honor View20 battery life was in my recent review but, as some of you may have seen on Twitter last night, I’m constantly surprised by just how long it does last. It’s like the Energizer bunny. In years past, Huawei / Honor were …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Huawei Mate 20 Pro – The unboxing

As this is Coolsmartphone, we haven’t rolled out our Huawei Mate 20 Pro review just yet because we like to review things in-depth. As is usual, we’ve put our main SIM into the device and we’re using it as our main phone, just as you guys would. However, …

Discounts available on reconditioned kit at musicMagpie

I love the fact that contracts aren’t as popular as they once were. Why pay nearly £60 per month for a phone every month for two years? It’s nuts when you think about it. Retailers like musicMagpie and, as we mentioned earlier Laptops Direct, are doing PayPal credit …
