Unihertz Atom – Unboxing

About a year ago I reviewed the £99 Unihertz Jelly Pro. It had 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot and ran Android 7 on a quad-core 1.1GHz chip. Oh, and did I mention? It was tiny. Only around 9cm tall and about 4cm wide. The …

Huawei P20 – Review

The introduction Huawei are no longer a company who are sitting on the sidelines letting everyone else steal the show. Since the P9 their devices have really been impressive and put them on the map. Now everyone is sitting up and watching as the company are producing some …

Mixcder E7 active noise cancelling headphones – Review.

Back in December I carried out a review of the Mixcder MS301 Premium Bluetooth headphones. I was extremely pleased with them. Both the sound and build quality was excellent, and I gave them an overall score of 92%. You can read that review here. Well now I’ve been sent …

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 …

BlackBerry Motion – Review

The Introduction BlackBerry have always been a brand with a dedicated base of followers around the world. When that brand made the switch from its own BB OS and moved to Android, it opened up a whole new world of apps and services. The Motion is not an …

Unboxing the Honor View 10

A few weeks ago I was down in good old London town where I bore witness to the latest Honor flagship. Today I have received a pre-production unit for review here at Coolsmartphone Towers. The phone is now available for preorder from the Honor website and, if it is …

Honor 7X – Thoughts and Unboxing

Yesterday I was allowed to leave the confines of Coolsmartphone Towers and escape into the depths of London for a few hours. During my brief sojourn into the real world, I was able to attend a small gathering of phone enthusiasts and bloggers (okay it wasn’t that small, there …

Is this the Oneplus 5T?

OnePlus have already brought us some exciting new smartphones, and they do this without charging a huge premium. Their previous offerings were popular, and more so with the recent OnePlus 5 which featured a dual camera system, great battery and huge amounts of RAM. However… It seems like …

Home, Sweet Home. NAS and WiFi picture backup

At home I have a NAS box. I originally purchased one of these because I’ve somehow used all the storage that my cloud provider had available and the cost to upgrade was nothing short of insane. I’d tried other providers, however the cost, the reliability, and the fact …

Sharp Aquos S1 and S2 leakage

It’s definitely been a substantial amount of time since we last wrote about a Sharp smartphone on here. (I think this 2014 post was the last one). Today though, we hear that the Sharp Aquos S1 and S2 have leaked, and yet again we’ve got the phrase “bezel-less”. …

Selfie stick? Phone cover? Combined? Boom!

You want a case, but you also want a selfie stick. What to do eh? Just how are you going to take those arty shots and simultaneously annoy everyone in the surrounding area without that selfie stick? What you need, flower, is a Stikbox. It’s a world first …

Sunnycam Xtreme 1080p HD Video Glasses – Review

You have to be a little careful when describing this particular product. They are a pair of sunglasses with a hidden camera at the front. It sounds a little dodgy if you put it that way. The camera is noticeable, however many won’t spotted on a day-to-day basis. …

Wileyfox Swift 2 Plus – Review

OK, first things you need to know. This, the Wileyfox Swift 2 Plus, is £189 on the Wileyfox website or (as I type) £164.99 on Amazon. SIM free in both places of course. It has a 5″ 1280×720 screen at 296 PPI with 2.5d Corning Gorilla Glass 3. …

LG G6 – Review

I’ve gone through some phases with my smartphones. I switched over to Android with the HTC Hero. It was then a succession of HTC handsets before I switched to a Samsung Galaxy device, but since then I’ve been firmly glued to an LG device. The LG G3 was …

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S+ … Everything you need to know

In London it was cold. In New York it was cold too. However, despite our efforts Samsung wouldn’t let us attend the launch events. We have instead seen the very strange “live in London” TV advert featuring some extremely eager people watching the “unboxing”. So, what’s the big …

Polk BOOM Swimmer Duo Bluetooth Speaker – Review

Going for a bike ride? Taking a shower? A bath? Perhaps you’re on a boat or you’re taking a holiday? Want some music for your travels? Well, check this new speaker out from Polk Audio. It’s the Swimmer Duo speaker and, although it’ll work fine on it’s own, …

MWC – Hands-on with the Alcatel A3

Available in May, this will cost you €149 (£127.74) in either black or white. It’s another phone from TCL and this is a pretty entry-level affair. The Alcatel A3 actually has a higher resolution camera than its bigger brother, the A5 LED. Here you’ll get a 13 megapixel …

MWC – Alcatel goes back to the old days with the A5 LED

Standing out from the crowd here in Barcelona is particularly difficult. I’m not talking about the stands, because it’s already tricky enough in that respect. Money (a lot of it, think millions of pounds) buys you big floor space and a bigger impact. Some companies resort to sweets, …

So, the LG G6 just leaked

Trusting leaks can be a dangerous game, but when it’s long-time leaker @evleaks, we do listen. He’s just posted this picture on his Twitter feed, purportedly of the incoming LG G6, which we’ll be able to get our hands on this coming Sunday when it’ll be launched officially. …

Honor 6X First Impressions

First impressions matter. Or so we are led to believe. My Honor 6X arrived today and I’ve wasted no time taking it out of its box and popping my SIM and a memory card into it. The things I do for Coolsmartphone.com and you readers. The Honor 6X …
