The Realme X3 punches way above its weight when it comes to the camera, but it doesn’t disappoint in other departments either.
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]
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]
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]
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]
Honor’s 20 series launch event couldn’t have come at a worse time, but thankfully all three models are now available to buy in the UK. I’ve already talked about the Honor 20 Lite and shown off the surprisingly good photos from the entry-level handset, but the Honor 20 is quite… [Click for more]
OnePlus came about with bold claims of building ‘flagship killer’ handsets at far more affordable prices. With the OnePlus 7 Pro, including its first 5G model, the company is gunning for top spot. I’ve been fortunate enough to get both the standard and 5G models, and you can read more… [Click for more]
When it comes to flagship Huawei phones, you can be assured of two key launches every year. In the autumn, the Mate series showcases the latest chipset. In the spring, it’s the turn of the P series to break new ground on the camera tech. In the past, there has… [Click for more]
While some of you might be familiar with Oppo, having perhaps imported your own from China, many will have little to no idea of who, or what, Oppo is. At the start of the year, the Chinese phone maker announced its entry into the UK, with a launch at London’s… [Click for more]
Cast your mind back to 2013 when Nokia launched a phone with a 41-megapixel camera. Many people thought the company had gone mad. Today Honor has launched a 48-megapixel endowed phone in the form of the Honor View 20. Almost six years on, I doubt anyone will think the company… [Click for more]
If you look at the flagship Mi MIX 3 alongside the forthcoming Honor View 20 and a bunch of other phones on the horizon, it would appear the short lived love affair for screen notches has come to an end. At £499, the Mi MIX 3 is a flagship handset… [Click for more]
