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 …

Doro 8020X Overview

If you’re of a certain age the Doro handsets will definitely appeal. They’re simple to understand, easy to use and have an intuitive method of getting tasks done. Some of their line-up, like the 6050 we looked at yesterday, are more simplistic. Other handsets pack further features, such …

Wileyfox Spark X – Review

There was a time, not too long ago, when phones costing £139.99 were best avoided. “Android landfill” they used to call them. Cheap devices with a questionable build quality, a dire camera and wonky screen resolutions. Here, for your money you’re getting a completely network-free device with an …

Moto X Force – Dropped from a drone

Sure, our Moto X Force review was pretty comprehensive, but the one thing we didn’t do was… drop it 900 feet from a drone. Yes, the phone does have a shatterproof screen, but surely it wouldn’t be able to survive that, would it? Plus, even if it did, …

Say goodbye to the Xperia Z series

We paid another visit to the Sony stand yesterday but nobody could tell us quite what was happening with the Z series. Sure, the new Xperia X series phones are beautifully designed, but what of the Z series? Well, according to a Sony rep, it’s now dead, so …
