Z2 Force on the way to Vodafone

We took a look at the new Moto Z2 Play in June. Shortly after that, the Moto Z2 Force appeared. This has a guaranteed shatter-resistant screen and more of those lovely MotoMods. It’s thinner too – just 6.1 mm and that P-OLED 5.5″ screen is 1440 x 2560 …

Tag your bag. Prevent a scallywag.

The V-Bag by Vodafone is, if I’m honest, actually called the Alcatel MOVETRACK. You can attach this little gadget to yourself, a loved one, a bag, a suitcase, a car, a piece of equipment, whatever you fancy really. Clip it on or put it inside your bag and, …

The iPhone X is now ready for pre-order

A little bit of me still whinces when the price tag on a phone is four digits long, and I can’t buy an iPhone X myself because it would be worth more than the car I’m driving. That’s just weird. There’s no getting away from the iPhone X …

Hands on with the Moto Z2 Play

The new Z2 Play is available with Vodafone. We’ve covered it before but now there’s one right here for you to have a good look at. The bright and vivid 5.5″ screen is a 1920 x 1080 pixel unit and the entire phone is just 5.99mm thick. This …

Motorola Moto Z2 Play now available on Vodafone

Just last week we told you that the new Motorola Z2 play was about to arrive on the Vodafone UK network. So, just like clockwork, here it is. If you want to be a bit different or try something that isn’t a Samsung or an iPhone, the modular …

Voda to carry the Moto Z2 Play

Yes, that’s pretty much the entire content of this story, right there in the title. Still, I’ve read the Daily Mail website and, if we now throw in 40 very similar photos with 4 paragraphs of text, it will apparently constitute a story. The Moto Z2 Play, which …

Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact now available on Vodafone

Fancy a new handset with the Sony design skills and a 5.2″ 1080×1920 pixel screen? Want it to be dust and waterproof? Want it to measure 148 x 73.4 x 7.4 mm and weigh in at 155 g? Sorry. I can’t help you with that. ONLY KIDDING! Coming …

More iPhone X contract deals

Looking for the iPhone X prices? Need to know just how much you need to put aside for that early Christmas present to yourself? Well, a contract deal will ease the pain a little, and we’ve already had a look at the Vodafone iPhone X pricing. However, there’s …

Samsung Note 8 – The deals!

The jury is still out on whether we should actually be calling it the Note8 or the Note 8, but either way you can get all the details here. If you want one, we’ve got you a list of all the offers and deals, courtesy of the various …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – All the details and the live launch

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Yeah. That didn’t go well did it? It became famous for all the wrong reasons – appearing on warning signs at airports and generally becoming the butt of jokes involving explosions or fireballs. Today marks the launch of the Note 8, and the …

Vodafone Smart V8 Unboxing

Newsflash. I have a problem. Once upon a time we’d get budget, network-branded phones delivered to the Coolsmartphone HQ and they would be.. for want of a better word.. crap. Now they’re not. They’re really not, and when I see someone walking around with a “big name” budget …

Vodafone E8 now available – Just £49 too!

OK, let me set out my stall first. This, the Smart E8, isn’t going to be faster than the likes of the new Samsung Galaxy S8 or the HTC U11. Likewise, it’s not going to have as much on-board memory or storage. But… but.. it’s not over £600. …

Vodafone reveal continued increase in data usage

A trading update? That’s normally quite a dry document and not one we’d feature here on Coolsmartphone, but the latest one from Vodafone has a number of pretty interesting points. Amongst mentions of “Q1 organic service revenue” and “acceleration in AMAP”, it also shows that data traffic has …

Making the air ..a bit.. more fair

There’s long been discussion about the share each network has of the mobile spectrum. Three UK, among others, have also started a campaign to stop one or two networks from being able to grab the larger slices. Today Ofcom have revealed that they will indeed put a cap …

Fresh ‘n Rebel Lace Earbuds – Review

  I’ll admit that I’d not heard of Fresh ‘n Rebel until I reviewed their speaker recently but, after testing these headphones, they seem to be a good manufacturer. These are £20 from the Vodafone store but you can get them elsewhere too. The headphones come with three …
