Honor 9 Lite, now even cheaper

Morning all. How are we today? Well I hope. The sun is out and tomorrow Harry and Meghan tie the knot, so it’s a grand excuse for “popping to the pub for a quick pint” to watch the ceremony. Of course, you know that the next thing you’ll …

Honor 10 sells out quickly.

Word up. It’s Thursday. Nearly the end of the week already and yes, the sun is out here in the UK. Here in the Coolsmartphone office we’re still recovering from Prince Harry’s stag do but the Honor press team have been banging down our door since dawn. Their …

Honor 10 Flagship – The Launch

In all honesty we just couldn’t afford the train fare to London for this one as we’re prioritising the costs of our servers (we’re running a donation drive right now if you can help) and we’re properly gutted about it. Why? Well, Honor have been rocking the smartphone …

Honor 7X Receives Face Unlock and EMUI 8.0 Update

Got yourself an Honor 7X? We got our hands on the thing late last year but now it’s just received the updated EMUI 8.0 user interface. This delivers the face unlock functionality too. Honor din’t just go ahead and deploy this – they’ve actually got hold of 561 …

YouTube Friday – Honor 7X Review

Iron Bru, Scotland, Matteo Doni. They all go together brilliantly, so we decided to add an Honor 7X into the mix too. We’ve already had a full hands-on with the device in November and it then appeared in December. However, the price has gone down a bit now …

YouTube – We made a boob.

Becoming a well-paid YouTube video star seems to be really high on the list of “wants” for kids in 2018. Many think that they don’t need to concentrate at school, because they can merely chuck a few YouTube videos up, get loads of subscribers, then live like a …

Honor 9 Lite – Video review

This morning I had a bit of a rant about this phone, and I’ll tell you why. I’ve been in this business since 2002. For years I’ve reviewed the “top-end” phones and a smattering of “budget Android handsets”. The latter, and let’s not beat about the bush, are …

Honor 9 vs Honor 9 Lite – The camera test… and a rant

I’m properly intrigued by these two phones. The Honor 9 has been in my pocket for many months now and I think it’s a brilliant handset. It’s £349.99 from the official UK store. The newly-announced Honor 9 Lite, on the right here, has an arguably better screen and …

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 …

Honor 9 Lite now on sale

Want to get the Honor 9 Lite we revealed the other day? Well, now you can. Splash out £199 on the Honor Store and then get yourself a good SIM only deal. Boom. You’re done. Why they’ve called it “Lite”, I really don’t know. OK, it’s got a …

Official. The Honor 9 Lite.

A new phone, with an extremely attractive pricepoint, has just been announced in London by Honor. It’ll cost, get this, just £199.99. Why is that a big deal? Because it’s got 4 cameras? Because it’s got the nano-scale optical coating? Because of the high-end glass casing? The 5.65″ …

Coolsmartphone Podcast 220 A Bristol Chart For Phones

Podcast Editing Porgs are working through the backlog. We quite like the friendly little screamers. Here is another two month old episode of the Coolsmartphone Podcast, edited with love, just for you… There you go. Another session of Matteo, Majid and Garry rambling on about Huawei, Honor, android …

Honor 9 and Honor 8 Pro getting Android Oreo very soon

It’s not arrived on my Honor 9 just yet, but Honor UK tell me that the Honor 8 Pro handsets should be getting a big dose of Oreo goodness very soon indeed. The company tell me that you’ll have improved boot times, better speed, more efficiency and reduced …

Get an Honor 7X, grab yourself some in-game credit and a free case

Back in November last year we took a good look at the Honor 7X. It comes equipped with a 5.93″ (2160 X 1080) edge-to-edge “FullView” screem (at the 18:9 ratio). For £269.99 you get 4GB of memory, 64GB storage, a dual-lens 16 and 2 megapixel camera arrangement, microSD …

Honor View 10 Sample Galleries

I’ve been using the Honor View 10 for a few weeks while travelling now and working on a full review which will have another awesome video review (no pressure Lukasz…). One of the features where the Honor View 10 delivers exceptional value is in the camera department: essentially …

CES 2018 – Honor 7X will get Face Unlock soon

Face Unlock seems to be the “in thing” with phone makers right now. We have seen it being implemented very well by Apple on the iPhone X and the team over at OnePlus have put their own slant on it too. Both these “Face Unlock” Systems use very different technologies to allow …

As a start to 2018, we have gone all fancy with our video production values. Thanks to an excellent contribution of direction and editing from our friend Lukasz Suliga, we now have our exclusive Honor View 10 Preview. So, what do you think? Please let us know in …

Honor View 10 photo special

We are deep into the mid festive slump but, for some of us, work has to carry on for a few more days before the shenanigans of the New Year begin. In an effort to cheer you all up, I have been busy taking pictures of the soon-to-be-released …
