Realme’s latest launch is the X3 SuperZoom. As the name suggests, it boasts a premium camera experience at a very affordable pricepoint.
My first experience of a Realme phone was the flagship X50 Pro 5G and now I’ve had a chance to try a far more budget offering in the form of the £189 Realme 6i. There are naturally a number of differences between the two, but hopefully not so much to… [Click for more]
Whether you’re an early adopter or intending to change phone once every few years, it makes sense to buy a 5G device for future proofing. The Realme X50 Pro 5G is an affordable way to do it.
I’ve had a OnePlus 8 for a while, but the current situation made it difficult to get all the photos I’d normally seek to take with a new phone. This is the camera review part of my full OnePlus 8 review. Below you’ll find a selection of photos and some… [Click for more]
OnePlus has once again nailed it with the affordable and mainstream OnePlus 8, but don’t assume that means low-spec. Far from it.
In a little over a year in the UK, Oppo has rapidly become a manufacturer to keep a close eye on. Following the original release of the groundbreaking Find X in June 2018, featuring a motorised pop up camera system, there has been an extremely long time until its successor… [Click for more]
Amongst a series of announcements from Huawei in Barcelona this morning, the Mate Xs was perhaps the most exciting. I’ll be covering the other new announcements later (there’s a new laptop and tablet, plus fast wireless routers with and without 5G) , but for now I was able to get… [Click for more]
I’m in a rather fortunate position to have access to a lot of different devices, and sometimes it’s nice to change for the sake of change. There’s simply no such thing as one-size-fits-all, so I thought I’d post some personal choices and recommendations of phones I think are suited for… [Click for more]
Everyone and their dog is making wireless earphones these days, making it a highly competitive market. Even though wireless earphones have been around for a considerable time, it can be said the real interest didn’t happen until Apple launched the AirPods. Since then, we’ve seen clone after clone with eBay,… [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]
With a large screen, decent battery and a power-efficient mid-range chipset, the Honor 8X was a great phone. One year later, Honor is hoping to repeat its success with the Honor 9X. Last year’s Honor 8X started out with a retail price of £229.99, while the Honor 9X starts out… [Click for more]
In early 2019, Sony launched the flagship Xperia 1 with a large 4K cinema-wide display. In September, it gave consumers the smaller Xperia 5. The Xperia 5 is considered by Sony to be a flagship, and at £700 it is certainly priced like one. The only problem is that it… [Click for more]
Honor has today launched its own version of the Huawei Watch GT 2, and with the promise of a highly competitive price, it is arguably the better buy. Powered by the exact same Huawei Kirin A1 chipset, with the exact same (up to) 14-day battery life, the exact same user… [Click for more]
Oppo only introduced the Reno range in April this year and already it has built up quite a portfolio. Then in October, it launched the Reno 2 in the UK. You’ve probably already seen my photo galleries (here and here and here), showing off the impressive camera, but it was… [Click for more]
The Huawei Nova 5T seems a welcome return of the Nova brand to the UK, but I can’t help but think I’ve seen it before…. Oh, that’s right. It’s because the Nova 5T is in fact a rebadged Honor 20. Once you take away the different finish on the rear… [Click for more]
I’ve taken a bit longer to review Huawei’s latest smart watch, and I place the blame firmly on Huawei. If you’re going to produce a watch with such long battery life (Huawei says it will go for up to two weeks), don’t be surprised when I have to wait to… [Click for more]
I haven’t reviewed a wearable for a while, as I’ve been perfectly content with my ageing Amazfit Bip, but I can’t claim to be into technology without looking at other products from time to time. When Honor gave me a Band 5 to check out, I was immediately impressed based… [Click for more]
At the start of this year, Planet Computers (the company behind the Gemini PDA) showed off a prototype of its second-generation portable computing device that uses the classic Psion keyboard design, connected to modern-day hardware. The Gemini is still available to buy, but the Cosmo Communicator takes things to the… [Click for more]
