The Nokia 5.1 comes back to the UK

Four years ago I was writing about the end of Nokia and how much I remembered my trust Nokia 5.1. I always called it the 5.1, but it was also known as the Nokia 2110 and it’s something I wrote about again just a month ago. Now, for …

My kitchen radio setup

I mentioned in a post yesterday about my kitchen radio setup. Many years ago, before DAB was ever really a “thing”, I got an internet radio because the choice of FM stations was a bit bland. Now, we’ve got smartphones that can get on-demand content, live radio and …

The Honor 7S arrives in the UK

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get a hands-on with the Honor 7S. It’s a budget smartphone and we’d been given a privileged early look at it. When we asked about the price we were told that it would sell for “around $110”. If you …

One million Honor 10 handsets sold in first month

I’m using the Honor 10 right now. I’m actually writing this very article on the thing. After a few days with it, you do have to admit, for the money, this is insanely good. It’s £399.99 and looks just amazing. The free case helps to keep it in …

Honor 9 Lite, now even cheaper

Calling Virgin Media customers! SIM only deals!

If you’ve got Virgin Media then it’s in your own interests to get a SIM card from them too. They, like Sky and BT, try to hook you into as many of their services as possible. The Virgin Mobile network runs on EE masts, so you’re going to …

Cheap iPhone? Want one? Try this

Kids. They’re brand magnets. My son and his mates all seem to want an iPhone, even though other phones would suffice. It has too have that Apple logo otherwise it’s just not cool, apparently. So there’s you, the responsible parent, facing a barrage of peer pressure and a …

The Huawei P smart – Review

I’m going to soak up a lot of this piece with a comparison. I know you’ve come here for the Huawei P smart review but it would be remiss of me if I didn’t mention the brother from another mother. In the past couple of weeks I’ve used …

Feature – My makeshift office / exercise bike

I write this whilst cycling. Yes, actually cycling. It might seem a little mad, and yes, it would be if I was actually moving, but I am instead sitting on an exercise bike in my garage. In truth I’ve had this particular exercise bike for a while now. …

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 …

Hello, you fool, I love you

Well, well, well! Welcome 2018! Just after Christmas I got knocked sideways by this Australian Flu thing and I’ve only just got rid of it. Put it this way, you really don’t want it. It’s bloody horrible. I’ve spent so much time in bed, and not in a …

Watch – Hydrofoil surf board is basically brilliant in every way

Click-bait title? Check. A story which has nothing to do with smartphones? Check. This is something I spotted last night and it’s frankly brilliant. I love proper back-to-basic inventions like this. It makes me wish I had one at my previous job – then I would’ve travelled up …
