There’s surprisingly little to visually differentiate the G4 from last year’s flagship G3. With the notable exception of more covers to choose from, including those leather covers that LG used to attract attention ahead of its launch. Beyond those, you’d be hard pushed to tell the difference. Perhaps LG thought that… [Click for more]
On paper, this low cost 4G smartphone appears to be quite a bargain – but can it really offer a similar experience to any of its more expensive rivals?
Introducing the Rook smartphone from EE, one of the cheapest smartphones to bring high-speed 4G access to the masses, and also shipping with Android 5.1 out of the box. It’s on sale to buy from today, but is it any good? I’ve written rather a lot about devices at the… [Click for more]
I’ve had my ‘Kickstarter Backer’ Pebble Time for about two weeks now, and in that time I’ve had people asking when I’ll finish my review. It’s fair to say that I should have written my thoughts earlier, but I wanted to try a few things out properly. See the Pebble… [Click for more]
At the P8 launch event yesterday, I got to meet light artist Michael Bosanko – a man who has created some awesome photos using various light sources (seriously, check out his site) and later I got a chance to create some pictures of my own, using various lights provided that Michael uses for his own… [Click for more]
My Pebble Time is here! Just over 12 hours from when I got my initial shipping notification from DHL that it had left Ireland, which more than makes up for the extra fee I had to pay to avoid the standard 4-6 week shipping from Hong Kong. Naturally I couldn’t wait to… [Click for more]
It might make for good copy saying ‘from the company you’ve never heard of’, but it isn’t particularly good for Huawei – the company behind the Honor brand and the manufacturer of the 6 Plus. However, that’s exactly how many reviews have kicked off, and I’ll confess that I planned to do… [Click for more]
The days of having to spend a fortune to get a decent spec smartphone are history. While there are still some features that remain available only to those willing to shell out a sizeable sum on a new phone, there’s nothing to say you can’t get virtually the same experience from… [Click for more]
In the second of my Disney related posts, here are a collection of photos taken with Huawei’s flagship P8 smartphone.
Here’s a rather extraordinary camera test, as I took the Honor 6 Plus (available exclusively on Three in the UK) to Disneyland Paris.
Check out the battle of the benchmarks, putting Motorola’s £159.99 Moto G 4G up against the £149.99 Honor 4X. The Moto G, first introduced in late 2013, has had many revisions until the 4G 2nd Generation model came along in March this year, and now comes with a 5-inch 720p display, 8-megapixel… [Click for more]
Honor’s £150 budget smartphone is in the house! Later this week I’ll be giving a thorough test of the Honor 4X, and its not-too-shabby 13-megapixel camera. The same week I hope to be taking delivery of Honor’s other new release, the Honor 6 Plus – but more of that another day. The dual-SIM… [Click for more]
Huawei P8 Review: Slim, powerful, good looking and won’t hurt your wallet [updated for new battery saving features]
Huawei has always been good at building solid flagship models that pack a punch, and look luxurious to boot. The P8 is no exception, and the only issue facing Huawei now is getting this phone into stores so people can actually see, and potentially buy, it. I’ve had mine since mid… [Click for more]
Some more photos, this time in the daytime. (See the night shots here). These are quite green, so I’ll be taking more later with a bit more variety! [Edit: Added a couple to the end of this gallery] SEE MY DETAILED FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF THE HUAWEI P8 See some sunset… [Click for more]
Find out more about this phone with my earlier hands-on (March) and also see some of the photos taken with the innovative dual 8-megapixel camera.
Having only just got my P8 today and started the long process to set it up with all my apps and widgets, my ‘first impressions’ review will take a couple of days, but I decided it might be an idea to play with the camera early on to get some early opinions. I’ll do… [Click for more]
