LG has now made it official; that’s it for its smartphone operation. Instead, it will now focus efforts on other growth areas, like EV components, smart homes, AI, and b2b solutions.
As of now, the RPI increase on contracts is no more for new contracts and upgrades. Instead, Three has introduced a fixed annual increase of 4.5%.
Originally intended for release in May, but delayed due to Covid-19, the Pixel 4a has been made official today.
Realme’s latest launch is the X3 SuperZoom. As the name suggests, it boasts a premium camera experience at a very affordable pricepoint.
OnePlus has just announced the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro, and OnePlus fans can now go on and order the new phones to get it delivered before the on-sale date. While the most exciting model is arguably the OnePlus 8 Pro, the model that will generate the most sales… [Click for more]
5G has been in the news a lot these last few days, for all the wrong reasons. Here are some links to try and break through the craziest theories doing the rounds. We’ve sadly gone from crazy people posting silly links from their bedrooms, to offensive theories about a link… [Click for more]
It’s a crazy time right now and clearly everyone’s mind is on other things at the moment. A lot of what I do here almost feels pointless now, as people settle in to a new life working from home, looking after children kept home from school, and people come to… [Click for more]
So here’s my third attempt to find the ‘Real 5G’ on Three, and it doesn’t seem to be going so well… That said, it was the best result so far – and EE didn’t even have 5G in the same location, so maybe I’m getting closer to finding the elusive… [Click for more]
So, after a disappointing start to Three’s 5G service north of London last week, I ventured into (north) London to try again. As before, I went armed with a 5G phone to try out Three’s service, plus a phone to try EE’s service in the same location. I’m quickly coming… [Click for more]
So today is the day I’d have returned home from what should have been the biggest global event in the mobile industry. The cancellation of Mobile World Congress was almost certainly for the best, even if some people thought it a massive overreaction at the time. Unless someone has access… [Click for more]
So today is when Three finally switched on its 5G network for handset users. Three’s 5G coverage is still very sparse, but that will obviously improve over time. What I wanted to do was see how fast the service is, given Three’s entire marketing campaign is based around superfast data… [Click for more]
LG has announced the LG V60 ThinQ 5G, and the good news is that it has continued with its dual-screen add-on accessory. Whether LG can achieve great sales remains to be seen, as LG has been going much the same way as HTC or Sony of late. It’s a shame… [Click for more]
I’ve assumed it before, and still BlackBerry has continued in some form or another, but the statement issued today doesn’t sound promising for the future of BlackBerry. While a lot of people have long since moved on from using a BlackBerry, despite almost certainly having fond memories of owning and… [Click for more]
My relationship with Huawei goes way back. Back to a time when they were unknown by most consumers (just like HTC) but the company behind a considerable number of products people used all the time. My first real involvement was working on a supplement magazine featuring Huawei data products, amongst… [Click for more]
Yesterday I got a chance to have a play with the Motorola Razr built for a new generation, featuring an exceptional folding display. With pricing rumoured to be upwards of £70 £99 per month on a 24-month contract when it goes on sale exclusively with EE in the new year,… [Click for more]
In addition to the Magic Watch 2, Honor has launched the View 30 and View 30 Pro, plus two MagicBook laptop PCs at its launch event in China’s capital. The Kirin 990 powered View 30 and View 30 Pro each come with 5G support and a SuperSensing AI triple camera,… [Click for more]
Wuntu is closing, which may not come as much of a surprise. A bigger surprise might be that people were actually using it in recent times. Three customers will be receiving notifications in the coming days to thank users for using the service (or not) and stating that all offers… [Click for more]
