The new Motorola RAZR. Take my money.

Well, this one was a bit of surprise when it appeared in our inbox. After many very similar-looking slate handsets, out of nowhere, comes this… I know, right? At last, a phone with a refreshingly old-but-new form factor. Not just a big screen, but a big screen that’s …

Microsoft are back in the phone game

A phone? From Microsoft? And it’s running Android? Are you having a laugh? Well yes, possibly, the release date on this is over a year away – Christmas 2020 – so whether the Microsoft Surface Duo and slightly larger Surface Neo will ever actually appear is up for debate, …

Galaxy Fold release postponed

The revolutionary latest folding device from Samsung, the Galaxy Fold, was due to hit the market this Friday.  Earlier we’d told you how the launch had been delayed, but now been postponed indefinitely. Apparently Samsung has e-mailed customers that have pre-ordered the device, stating that orders may well …

Samsung Galaxy Fold delayed

Last week we told you about the rather poorly Galaxy Fold handsets. Broken hinges, busted displays and a peel-able screen protector that, if removed, breaks the screen. Now Samsung have pushed back the launch of their new folding device in order to “fully evaluate the feedback and run …

Samsung Galaxy Fold units breaking already.

Oh dear. Some serious problems for Samsung this morning as first users of their Galaxy Fold experience broken hinges and flickering displays. This is not what the company wanted at all. Before I type another word, I should mention that a proportion of the problems appear to be …

The Samsung Galaxy Fold bend test. Strangely hypnotic.

That clever folding Samsung smartphone looks beautiful, no denying that. However, deep down we’re all thinking, “Surely it’s going to develop a crease or crack somehow?” I tend to use my wallet as an example. It’s got folds and stretches all over it so, despite what my head …

EE to take the Samsung Galaxy Fold

It’s not the Mate X. Not yet anyway, but EE have now picked up the Samsung Galaxy Fold and will be selling it here in the UK very soon. EE will have the network exclusive, while Samsung will be making the Fold available on the Samsung Online Shop …

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 …

So, you want something different?

How about a folding phone then eh? Yep. Interested aren’t you? Me too! The ability to extend the display ad-hoc is definitely something I’d like to try out, although a piece of me thinks that there must be some sort of creasing on those edges after you’ve folded and …

A look at the first foldable smartphone – the FlexPai

With smartphones looking more and more similar by the day, there’s always a keen interest in anything that doesn’t look slate-shaped. However, making it fun, different, usable to actually something that people will want to buy is a whole new thing. This, then is hopefully where the Royole …

Jump on my USB-powered hot seat.

Right, short version. This is on Kickstarter right now and you can (if you’re really very quick), pledge just $69 to get one. It’s basically a comfortable, portable, self-supporting seat which has a heat pad to warm your bottom. The power for this is provided via any portable …

A smart folding mobility scooter with style. Relync

I like this one. It’s called Relync and, unlike a lot of mobility scooters you’ll see, it’ll fold effortlessly and neatly in just 3 seconds. This, the Relync R1, can also be easily carried on a train or plane after switching to a “trolley mode” so that you …

Samsung grab a patent for a flip phone … sort of 

Earlier this year the interwebs was full of rumours that Samsung was planning to ship smartphones and tablets with a bendable OLED screen. In fact in June this year Lenovo displayed a prototype of its own bendable phone. Well a recent leaked patent application from the Korean Intellectual …
