Yesterday at a lavish event in New York, Samsung unveiled the new Galaxy Note 9, along with the Galaxy Watch and a new Bixby-powered Galaxy Home speaker. Earlier it had launched the Tab S4 at a separate event. I wasn’t at either launch event, but I was invited […]
When Honor invited me to the Honor 10 launch, with many of the great features from Huawei’s latest flagships, I was very excited. Especially when the phone once again had Honor’s trademark multi-layered glass rear design. Having now had one to review for a few weeks, I’ve had […]
After using the Huawei P20 Pro for almost a month, I’m hereby ready to post my review that’s had the added benefit of restoring faith in an industry that was beginning to look like it was lacking innovation, with nothing but evolutionary updates and tweaks. The P20 Pro is strongly […]
Today in Paris, Huawei unveiled three new P-Series smartphones; the P20 Lite, P20 and P20 Pro. For reasons you’ll discover soon, I am concentrating my attention on the P20 Pro. Every time a new phone is released, you can be pretty sure the camera will be the centre […]
I’ve been extremely fortunate enough to have a Gemini PDA for a few weeks now, with only one other person getting an early review unit – the illustrious Mr Mobile. He’ll do a wonderful job of reviewing this in video form, but here’s mine in written form. Since […]
Last week, I posted my review of EE’s new 4GEE home mobile broadband service after having EE’s professionally fitted 4G antenna installed. This week, I replaced the EE-supplied router with a Huawei B618 LTE router, which has given a further speed boost to an already impressive service. The difference […]
I was once blown away by the incredible speed of ADSL. Now it’s like watching paint dry. Thankfully there may now be a realistic alternative for those who aren’t lucky enough to have fibre or cable alternatives. It’s pretty obvious why ADSL no longer cuts the mustard. The […]
A short hands-on with the Honor 9 Lite, and some first impressions of the new ‘affordable premium’ phone.
Honor invited me to see the launch of two exciting new smartphones just in time for Christmas. Check out the Honor 7X and View 10.
I knew that having been in the game for so long would pay off eventually, as I finally got a hands-on with a device I’ve longed to see for almost 20 years! The new Gemini PDA, from Planet Computers, is the spiritual successor to the Psion Series 5 […]
With the Mate 10 Pro going on sale this week, here’s my in-depth review. Read on to find out why I believe this phone is the best flagship phone on sale right now.
I’ve seen the future, and it’s not a smartphone! At least that’s the marketing that Huawei will be using to sell the brand new Mate 10 handsets announced today. In fact, it could very well be the smartest phone to date. The Mate 10 Pro accompanies a Mate […]
As part of Vodafone’s 2017 collection of own-brand smartphones and tablets, the network has today announced the Smart V8 as its new flagship. At a recent event I got one to take away for review, and here are my first impressions. Unlike last year’s high-end Platinum 7, which came […]
Having had the Honor 8 Pro for a while, I’ve had a chance to take a fair few pictures. Choosing the best ones wasn’t easy, so I’ve posted a sizeable gallery here instead. You can also see a short edited video of the 4K video the phone can now […]
Now the Honor 8 Pro is announced, I am happy to publish my full review. First of all, let’s get a disclosure over and done with. I was given a review unit just over a week ago, making this the quickest review I’ve ever written and published. Normally I work to a […]
Without a doubt, data roaming will be easier in Europe from June this year, but venture beyond the EU (that we’re trying to leave anyway) and things can be rather complicated. And by complicated, I mean expensive. Let’s face it, in most cases data roaming totally sucks. Even on tariffs that already include roaming […]
One year on from when Huawei and Leica first formed their alliance, is the P10 still as capable in the world of smartphone photography?
At last, the daytime photos I promised from my group test, comparing Huawei’s P10 with last year’s P9, and also the Mate 9 (which on paper has an identical camera set up to the P10). I’ve also added some videos, some 2x hybrid zoom shots and panoramas. This […]
I’ve been meaning to post these pictures earlier, but sadly had some trouble with the photos after a little trouble with backed up photos. I had more, but some got lost and left me without three photos at each location. It’s annoying, but hopefully what I’ve been able to […]
This morning I saw Alcatel’s new A5 LED, a mid-range smartphone that comes with a rear filled with colourful LEDs to add a new dimension in notifications. It’s not the first time coloured LEDs have been put in a phone that can do more than, well, notify. Nokia […]
