Clickbait headline or reality? Most definitely the latter. The Mac Mini is one of my best purchases of 2020, if not longer.
Three has quietly dropped Go Binge, its zero-rated streaming service aimed at customers not on an unlimited data plan.
5G has been in the news a lot these last few days, for all the wrong reasons. Here are some links to try and break through the craziest theories doing the rounds. We’ve sadly gone from crazy people posting silly links from their bedrooms, to offensive theories about a link… [Click for more]
So today is the day I’d have returned home from what should have been the biggest global event in the mobile industry. The cancellation of Mobile World Congress was almost certainly for the best, even if some people thought it a massive overreaction at the time. Unless someone has access… [Click for more]
My relationship with Huawei goes way back. Back to a time when they were unknown by most consumers (just like HTC) but the company behind a considerable number of products people used all the time. My first real involvement was working on a supplement magazine featuring Huawei data products, amongst… [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]
Has Huawei got a potential lifeline to solve the Google apps issue and bring the Mate 30 Pro to the UK?
Possible deal could see Google Apps coming after all Plus, it’s not time to write off the P30 Pro yet! We already know the current situation with Huawei and the Mate 30 Series lacking access to Google apps, but earlier this week there were some positive signs that the situation… [Click for more]
Last night at an absolutely huge event in Barcelona, Samsung revealed what we already knew – the two new Galaxy S9 products, the £739 S9 and the £869 S9+. Let’s hope your credit cards aren’t already maxed out, for they soon will be! There was little in the way of… [Click for more]
First of all, let me say that I really like Three for everything it has done to shake up the market over the years. And when Feel at Home launched, I was one of the many customers who could save a packet when travelling abroad. But as someone fortunate enough travel… [Click for more]
For a good few years now, I’ve spent much of my time writing about more affordable phones that offer exceptional value for money and without many compromises. But there’s always a recognition that if you’re happy to shell out top dollar, you’ll likely get the absolute best of the best. At least you’d expect so…. [Click for more]
The Verge reported this week that the current CEO, Eric Xu Zhijun, is no fan of the smartwatch. Huawei rotates CEOs every six months, so the same site also points out that the previous acting CEO can’t have been much of a fan either. This perhaps explains why, as I… [Click for more]
If you’re wondering why there were no Tweets from me today about the long-awaited Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ launches, it’s because Samsung didn’t invite me to its latest (and arguably most significant) Unpacked event. But I couldn’t sit by without writing something about these devices, given the fact these… [Click for more]
So as MWC 2017 ended, I got to summarise my three-day trip and detail some of the highlights, some of the gimmicks and some opinion. A lot of opinion as it happens. The key theme of the event was 5G, but from a consumer perspective, 5G is still a fair way off… [Click for more]
Time was when we were all gagging for the newest, latest phone. It had been shown at MWC, CES or IFA, and we’d all count on our fingers to work out how many months left until our existing contract expired. That doesn’t happen anymore. Phones have become boring, despite becoming… [Click for more]
Yesterday, on Pixel launch day, I went along to a local store to see the phones for myself, and how they were being received by the general public. I visited an out of London EE store yet to put the phone out on display, but by mid-afternoon it had already sold… [Click for more]
If you follow me on Twitter, or on the various forums I frequent, you’ll already know that in the days leading up to Google’s Pixel phones launch, I have hardly shown many sign of being impressed. But I did add that I hoped Google was holding out on some killer reveal that would make… [Click for more]
Last night, one day ahead of Apple’s big iPhone 7 unveil, LG took the covers off the new V20 handset. Like the G5 and earlier releases, LG drip-fed the world with teases ahead of its launch so it was only really a case of filling in some blanks for this latest… [Click for more]
Earlier this week I did something a little crazy on impulse. I decided to buy a cheap Chromebook. Why? Because Amazon customers are able to get a Lenovo N22 Chromebook (with 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage) for the incredible price of £99.99. At that price, it hardly feels like a high… [Click for more]
