Having now got every single budget Motorola smartphone (bar one) since the first Moto G hit the shelves in November 2013, with the Moto E marking its debut soon after, I thought it was as good a time as any to see how each successive model compares against the last. Advertisements

This morning, BT finally got back into the mobile game with the (re) launch of BT Mobile, this time as an MVNO for EE – a company BT is in the process of acquiring, subject to regulatory approval. It has been teased on forums and social media for […]
After a release of the 4G version of Motorola’s second generation Moto G in some markets late last year, the company has today announced its UK release. £159 gets you the Moto G 4G (2nd Gen) and it’s on sale now via the Motorola website, and from next week […]
These camera photos were supplied by Honor and were taken from a pre-release Honor 6 Plus handset. As such, I had no control over the subject matter and will do my own test with a final retail model as soon as I can. The Honor 6 Plus has two 8-megapixel […]
At Mobile World Congress this week, Honor launched its latest smartphone to the world. The Honor 6 Plus will also be the first phone to be sold in the UK through a mobile operator, Three. I was at a small London preview event for those not in Barcelona, where we […]
Last year I put EE, O2 and Three to the test in central London to see how 4G was performing. I also tested 3G as not every network was able to offer 4G in the places visited. At the time, Three was yet to launch its fledgling service to the general […]
Last year at Mobile World Congress it was easy for journalists to make jokes about the Galaxy S5 being anything but original, and full of gimmicks. But then we all got our hands on the device, and it was actually a pretty decent phone. Sure it was possibly a […]
Besides the awesome Moto G family, Motorola last year introduced an even cheaper entry-level model, the Moto E. And today comes the even faster and more impressive successor.
At 3pm UK time, Pebble unveiled its new smartwatch, called Pebble Time, and the company has returned to Kickstarter to attract investors in the watch that is due to go into full scale production in time for a May release.
The Verge has today reported that Pebble shipped its one millionth Pebble at the end of 2014, as well as revealing plans to launch new watches in 2015. This is great news, as hearing very little from Pebble for some time had me wondering if all was well at […]
I don’t normally review Windows PCs, but felt I should make an exception here, especially as reviews of the Linx 10 Windows Tablet are surprisingly thin on the ground. In fact, the only one I’ve found so far is by PC Pro.
EE’s announcement of 7.7 million 4G customers is impressive, but even more impressive is the news that 4G data grew massively in 2014 compared to the year before.
I was blown away by the original Hudl, and having now had a Hudl 2 since October, I have to say that Tesco has created something quite exceptional.
While Sony didn’t have much in the way of new mobile devices at CES (Mobile World Congress being the big one where we’re likely to see the Z4 range unveiled), I had to post this video of my friend Lucy Hedges giving a round-up of what was there. […]
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here, due to other work commitments and projects, but this site is definitely not dead. Far from it, especially with some impressive stats provided by WordPress just before Christmas that gave me a real buzz. It seems my promise not to […]
One thing I never liked about the Xperia Z2 was the, frankly, awful sound if you were recording a video in a noisy environment – such as a gig. But the Z3 and Z3 Compact came along with a new option to set the microphone gain, and now with the […]
They say all good things come to an end, and users on Three’s One Plan will soon be told it’s game over, marking an end to the unlimited tethering facility that was exceptional value for money, but arguably totally unsustainable.
A crowd-sourced survey conducted by OpenSignal in conjunction with Which?, today reveals the current state of the UK mobile phone network. Based on over 67 million data readings provided by users running the OpenSignal app on their Android or iOS device, the survey also shows that in the […]
I promised more photos from the Xperia Z3, and here are over 100 pictures, which include indoor, outdoor, daylight, night and near total darkness situations.
