How popular is repairing your own phone?

Let me tell you a story. Right now I have a poorly Honor View20. It’s a fantastic phone and I wanted to enjoy the rather cool rear panel. It reflects and bends the light as it hits, displaying a “V-shaped” shimmer which looks incredibly cool. To enjoy this …

Honor View20 – Price drop. Get one. Go on, get one.

I bloody loved this phone. In fact, I think I loved it too much. After giving it a glowing review I somehow broke the thing. Honestly, I was proper gutted when “a small chip” on the corner of the phone turned into a screen-filling shatter. Nightmare. Proper decent …

Easter discounts on Honor handsets

Seen my Honor View20 review? Like the Desktop Mode and the long battery life? Well, if you want it and you can pay up front, you’ll be glad to hear that there’s a time-limited discount on this particular device. It means that you can get a stonking 128GB …

Honor View20 – Stellar battery life

I mentioned how good the Honor View20 battery life was in my recent review but, as some of you may have seen on Twitter last night, I’m constantly surprised by just how long it does last. It’s like the Energizer bunny. In years past, Huawei / Honor were …

Honor View20 – Review

I’ll be honest, Huawei and Honor seem to be cranking up the handset launches to a rate where I’m losing track slightly. Honor, let’s not forget, is a sub-brand of Huawei. You get the same quality, the same Huawei processor and the same user interface, albeit with a …

Well, the lid kinda got blown off this one already, but no matter – we’re here in Paris to see the hot new flagship from Honor for real. As is usual, we’ll be bringing you live coverage via our Twitter account, which we’ve handily embedded here for you. …

Keep it locked. Complete Honor View20 coverage. Live.

Later today we’ll be at a phone launch. Nothing really different about that, it’s something we’ve done for years. However, this is the launch event for the Honor View20, and this phone has a bit of a cool trick up it’s sleeve. Actually, I should tell you that …

The Honor View20 – Look closely. Notice something?

Creating a phone that looks a bit “different” is definitely in the interests of most phone manufacturers, however if you do there’s the risk that the phone isn’t going to be as popular. So, there’s smaller but rather cool tweaks happening to new phones now, and although they’re …

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 …

(Update) Welcome your new look. The Honor View 10

Honor have today launched their now familiar “well priced but still very, very good” handset in the shape of the Honor 7X. However, if you want to spend £449.99 and get some artificial intelligence, have a look at this – the new Honor View 10. It doesn’t look …

The Honor 7X touches down in the UK. Time to max your view..

Remember our full hands-on of the Honor 7X ? Well, time to open a bottle my friends, it’s coming to the UK and – as we suspected – it’s going to be pretty cheap too. The Honor 7X has that 5.93″ (2160 X 1080) edge-to-edge almost bezel-less screen …

Hands on with the Honor 7X

Good morning you wonderful people. Now, I’m going to put some information into this article and it’s totally up to you what you do with it. OK? In a few days Honor will be launching a new phone. They’re telling us how this new phone will “Max your …

Honor are about to max your view

I’m lucky enough to get invited to press conferences fairly often but sometimes, just sometimes, I’m unable to make it. Instead, one of my esteemed Coolsmartphone colleagues intends instead. The recent email from Honor is a case in point. I couldn’t go to their December 5th launch event …

T505 LED Headlamp – Review

Strap yourself in people, because we’re going to be reviewing a headlamp. Nope, not a headlight on your car – but one that you strap to your head for seeing in the dark. This is a pretty big one – it has a 8cm diameter on the lamp …

Got the SIII and want the Samsung Smart View app?

This might only target a fairly small subset of people, but they’re no less important than anyone else. If you, dear reader, have gone out and bought yourself one of those whizzy Samsung Smart TV’s and then bought a brand new Samsung Galaxy SIII, listen up. On the …

My view of Google’s step to gain control of Android skinning.

Since the start, Android has always been on the forefront of becoming the largest open source OS. This was to give manufacturers the chance to skin the platform. But, now it seems to be changing. During the last month, sources have provided us information that all is about …
