Huawei Mate 20 Lite Review: An iPhone XR competitor for half the price (but with even cheaper alternatives too)
Alongside the new Huawei Mate 20 Pro comes the ‘Lite’ version, which the company has been pitching as a direct competitor to the iPhone XR. At £379, compared to £749 for the iPhone, it’s quite a bold comparison to make – but on paper the specifications are certainly pretty close,… [Click for more]
Honor 8X Review: The screen size of an iPhone XS Max for almost a fifth of the price. That’s insane.
It doesn’t seem like very long ago that released the Honor Play, the first ‘gaming-centric’ phone from a company targeting ‘brave’ digital natives. It ticked all the right boxes for a respectable £279 retail price, but that hasn’t stopped Honor releasing an even bigger screened device, but with a slightly… [Click for more]
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 to go… [Click for more]
When Honor invited me to the Honor 10 launch, with many of the great features from Huawei’s latest flagships, I was very excited.

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.

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 my preview… [Click for more]
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.
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.

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 record. It’s… [Click for more]
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 strict two-week… [Click for more]
One year on from when Huawei and Leica first formed their alliance, is the P10 still as capable in the world of smartphone photography?
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 had a… [Click for more]
