Realme – Surely those are sale prices, yeah?

Those of you who were watching our live Realme coverage may have spotted this pricing slide.. Notice how, down at the bottom there, it says, “Flash sale”? Well, we were a bit concerned by that. The pricing of the entry-level Realme 5 Pro, the mid-range X2 and the …

Huawei reduces sales forecasts, delays the Mate X

The Trump Trade Termination is now having a big impact on Huawei. Donald Trump, who spent much of yesterday tweeting about fake news, has put Huawei on a (very short) list of companies that US and US-connected companies must not deal with. The result is a big loss …

Huawei goes 5G. Welcome in, the Mate 20 X

A mobile phone company called Huawei announced a phone late last night. You might not have heard about them because they’re hardly ever in the news :) Thing is, this is a 5G phone, and it’s a first for the company. The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is …

An afternoon with a Tesla Model X

I was very lucky today that, thanks to David Wildman of Btekt, I was able to spend the afternoon with a Tesla Model X in stunning blue. The car is a true technological marvel, and it’s fair to say that I was very impressed with all the gadgetry and …

MWC – Vodafone and EE to carry the Huawei Mate X

Here in Barcelona it’s all about foldable phones so far. Samsung did their big launch a few days ago but then Huawei came along and gave us this.. A 4500mAh battery, 5G connectivity, super-fast charging, a power switch and fingerprint reader in one, Leica camera tech and that …

MWC – Huawei Mate X sneakily snapped

A folding phone. I know, mad huh. Who’d come up with one of those? Samsung. OK. Samsung. They announced the Galaxy Fold just recently. It’s mad expensive but secretly yes, you want one. Now, as Spanish builders put the finishing touches to the Barcelona staging at Mobile World …

What’s the issue with the iPhone X?

Prior to the release of the iPhone X, there were rampant expectations that Apple’s 10-year anniversary device would break all sorts of sales records. With a handful of groundbreaking new features and a stellar, OLED display, everyone anticipated that the hot new iPhone X would dominate the market …

#MWC18 – A look at that NOA N10 iPhone X lookalike

No prizes for guessing what this handset reminds you of design-wise. It is, to be honest, the second handset with a “notch” that I saw in the very same hall, and some manufacturers aren’t afraid if taking “design ideas” from Apple. On the NOA stand it was the …

iPhone X – Watch as people queue up outside a fake Apple store.

I’ll be honest here. I don’t have £999 for a phone. I’m using an Honor 9 for £379.99 (read all about it here) and.. well, it’s perfect for me. Lovely camera, a speedy experience, great screen and it looks bloody gorgeous. If I had £999 floating around, I’d …

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 …

The iPhone X …let the parodies begin

As we mentioned earlier on Twitter, new iPhone handsets tend to go through a number of stages during their lifespan. Stage 1 – The iPhones are announced in front of a set of carefully-selected press. Stage 2 – The handsets are derided and criticised. Stage 3 – The …

Apple Event – Live

Ok, we’ll give this a try. You already know quite a bit about the iPhone X / iPhone 8 from our earlier exclusive post and, as is usual with anything Apple related, the excitement surrounding the launch is palpable. We’ve seen what it should look like, the details …

The new iPhone. It’ll be expensive. Get used to it.

Every time I write about the iPhone I seem to upset someone. Look, the new iPhone will be been announced today, so I’m writing about that. However, this same story could also apply to the Samsung Galaxy Note8. That’s £869, which is a lot of money. The Samsung …

Massive iPhone X leakage ahead of launch event

At the weekend I found this, my old HTC One V. Released just five years ago, it has a 3.7″ screen which looks tiny when sat next to the latest smartphones. A 1GHz CPU and 512MB of memory also meant that the experience was hilariously slow. How far …
