OnePlus 8T to get a 120Hz screen

The title of this particular item is all you’ll probably need to read in all honesty. The all new OnePlus 8T is coming and will be unveiled on October 14th. Today the company is announcing that it’ll have an ultra-smooth 120Hz FHD+ HDR10+ fluid display with an A+ …

Virgin Mobile adds a free screen repair service

Hold up, it’s not for all smartphones, but Virgin Mobile have added a completely free screen repair service on some top-end models, including the Samsung Galaxy Note20 Ultra 5G, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. Those phones, I think it goes without saying, are expensive to …

Comparing mobile phone insurance. Get it right!

It’s got to the point where I now have the cheapest mobile deal in the house. My wife, however, is spending nearly £58 per month on her two-year contract. It’s a crazy amount for a Galaxy S9, however there’s a few “additions” to the package she’s got. The …

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip – Is that flexible glass really glass?

The people at JerryRigEverything have been taking an up-close look at the Galaxy Z Flip and they’ve come up with some very interesting results. Of course, let’s get over the immediate problem that here in the UK we call it the “Zed Flip” whilst in the USA it’s …

OnePlus goes 120 Hz

So, you thought the super-slick screen on the OnePlus 7T was smooth ? That’s 90 Hz and slides along like butter on a hotplate, but now OnePlus want to go further. The company have just finished off a 120 Hz Fluid Display and they’ll be introducing it this …

Mujjo Double-insulated Touchscreen Gloves – Review

A few days ago I mentioned the improved Mujjo touchscreen gloves. Pricey they might be (these ones here are €59.90 from the Mujjo website but they really are top-notch quality. These gloves have been a bestseller for Mujjo for quite a while, but they’ve recently improved these gloves …

New ultra-warm touchscreen gloves now available

Was it really a year ago that I reviewed the Mujjo Touchscreen gloves? Well, time has certainly flown by, but the cold weather is back again and – in all honesty – you’ve probably lost whatever gloves you had last year in the back of the cupboard somewhere. …

Realme X2 Pro on the horizon, looking good

Despite what people may say, here in the UK we’ll still be part of Europe no matter what happens. That, bear with me, matters because companies like Realme are heading to Europe and they’ve got some serious kit in tow. This, the Realme X2 Pro, is on the …

Xiaomi go utterly bananas. Meet the Mi MIX Alpha!

It’s a concept phone, surely? You won’t be able to buy it.. will you? Oh wait. No, Xiaomi tell me that they’re going to start small-scale production of this one at the end of September! The Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha is pretty much all screen. A 180% screen-to-body …

OnePlus 7T Series – Incoming!

Given the issues that Huawei and Honor are facing, it’s fair to say that the competitors are smelling an opportunity. One in particular is OnePlus, who’s today announced the launch event details for its OnePlus 7T Series. Things kick off at 4pm BST on October 10th, with the …

The iPhone 11 screen. Why is it worse than a budget Android?

We’ve just put our Huawei P30 Lite review online and, whilst writing our second article about the new iPhone 11, something stuck out. Sure, without doubt the iPhone 11 is a high-end smartphone. Available in six colours, it has an A13 Bionic CPU and is splash, dust and …

IFA – TCL brings us a Dotch-packing PLEX

Wait, who? Well, TCL were behind the re-emergence of the mighty BlackBerry. We had a look at their KEYone handset a couple of years ago and this year they showed off the new red BlackBerry Key2 and some very nice flexible screens this year. But what else have …

Nubia – Dual-screen smartphone? Look over here!

With LG teasing a dual-screen V60 ThinQ at IFA, the guys at Nubia want you to remember the fact that they’ve already shown one off. The Nubia X appeared at CES, but now they’re bringing that same dual-screen technology to the new Nubia Z20, and it’ll be available …

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 announced

  I’ve still not really got “into” smart watches, but the new Galaxy Watch Active2 could well change my mind. For a start, it’s a very sexy looking thing and, whats more, it’ll do 4G connectivity too. There’s also two sizes – a 44mm and 40mm diameter watch, …

Two-screen LG V60 ThinQ smartphone coming to IFA 2019

Announcing your next phone before it’s announced? Well, sounds a bit crazy but that’s what LG have one. A teaser trailer of a new LG phone launching in September at IFA shows what initially could be a shark-fin camera, an opening smartphone, a dual-screen phone or a phone …

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 …

Give your phone some liquid foundation

Keeping your phone in good condition usually involves a case or cover and a screen protector. Situation normal there, but Invisible Shield have now come up with some foundation for your phone instead. Yes, foundation. It’s basically a liquid protector for your smartphone, smart watch or tablet with …

Children, tablet and phones. Here’s my advice.

A lot has been said in recent days about children and mobile phone use. A number of recommendations have come out, ranging from banning mobile phone use in schools, limiting screen time and banning phones at the table. In all honesty, it can be tricky. Parents secretly like …

New Mujjo Touchscreen Gloves – Review

Paying €49.90 or $49.90 for a pair of touchscreen gloves might seem a bit much, but believe me – I’ve tried touchscreen gloves in the past. Yes, you can get cheaper gloves out there, but you’ll be walking around in a minefield of gloves which either make your …

Mujjo launch their new touchscreen-friendly gloves

Right. It’s cold. We all know that. Well, it is here in the UK at least. Yesterday I went for a lunchtime bike-ride and couldn’t feel my fingers after a few minutes, which isn’t good. If you’re walking to work, or heading to the train station, college, Uni …

Research reveals our tech-addicted kids

If you’ve got children then you’ll probably be having the same tech battle as many other parents up and down the land. You’ve no doubt remembered how you used to play outside as a child but now, in 2018, kids find the lure of a gadget, a TV, …

Breaking – I’ve killed another phone

I was already having a bad enough few months. Remember my busted Galaxy S7 ? I smashed the back on that. Then there was the Honor 9 which, although it still works fine to this day, has a small crack across the camera lens and means that all …

So, there was an incident…

I’ve been on holiday recently. I had a lovely Huawei Mate 10 Pro with me. It was the very one that I was using when I showed you the Huawei Desktop Mode and you can see our full Mate 10 Pro review if you’re looking to buy one. …

Airtame. Give monitor cables the boot.

On Friday I spent a good ten minutes running around to try and find a VGA cable. The reason? A client informed me, just before I headed out of the door, that their projector only had a VGA input. This, in 2018, seemed a little strange. In my …

How to screen record on iPad and iPhone in iOS11

Late last year Apple added an excellent new screen record feature to iOS11 which, for many, may have gone unnoticed. Instead of taking a dull screenshot and drawing on it with digital ink, you can now record and describe what’s happening on you iPhone or iPad screen. A …

The LG G7 ThinQ is finally launched

Well, where do I start here? We saw the LG G7 ThinQ back in February at Mobile World Congress. It was all a bit weird, because they displayed it around the back of the stand, supposedly to invite-only people, but then didn’t stop said people taking lots of …

More details of the LG G7 emerge

Just in case you missed it, the LG G7 made a rather unscheduled appearance at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year. There was rumours that it wasn’t the finished product, but then it became clear that it actually was. Very strange. Now we’re just days away from …

#MWC18 – Come on PanzerGlass, give it a PROPER whack!

On Monday we saw the guys from PanzerGlass hammering their own screen protectors to prove how well they protect your phone. Now, truth is that they do break sometimes, and they’re designed to do that if there’s a really, really hard impact. After all, it’s better to have …

#MWC18 – PanzerGlass, a phone, a hammer. What could go wrong?

Misleading headline that because, in reality, nothing went wrong. I am, though, learning the art of click-bait 😉 Yes, we’re back again in Barcelona and we’re back to see those crazy guys at PanzerGlass as they show just how good their screen protectors actually are. They’ve roped in …

Face off – The Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8+

Hello people. I’ll let you into a secret and I’ll also get some admin out of the way. I’ve borrowed these two phones from the people at O2. Trouble is, I’ve had them for a bit longer than I originally intended, so I have to pimp O2 a …

Living life through a screen

For those who aren’t based on the UK, the artist simply known as “Banksy” is an anonymous activist who displays street art and political messages in graffiti across the country. His stenciled images usually attract high valuations too. Just a few hours ago, Banksy shared this tweet. He’s …

What really happens when your phone or iPad goes in for repair

If you were travelling back into work this morning then, if you’re on the train or Tube, I’ll bet you’ve seen someone using a broken phone. Phones, let’s admit, are expensive things. We already pay enough per month to buy the things, so the thought of paying even …

Curved glass ? Big replacement cost.

I’m going to start this piece by saying that I’ve never been greatly bothered by phone insurance. It’s not something I’ve considered getting because I’m generally pretty careful. However, thanks to our bank (and a regular monthly fee) we have a few “perks” which includes travel and mobile …
