Please Don’t Download Fortnite for Android From Sketchy Places

When Fortnite developer Epic Games decided to skip the Google Play Store and asked players to install the newly released Android app from its website instead, the decision made a lot of sense financially. By cutting out Google, Epic could now retain 100 percent of the game’s profits on Android, rather than let Google take its traditional 30 per cent cut for apps hosted on Google Play. Read More >>

Your Call Recording App Isn’t Going to Work With Android Pie

The rollout of Android 9 (Pie) has already begun, but there's a problem for one very particular kind of app. While there had been rumours Google was going to offer a built-in call recording feature on Pie, it seems that the latest version of Android has stopped many of the third party apps from working. Basically if you want to record your phone calls that badly you're probably going to have to root your device. Read More >>

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 Is the Best Big Phone

Since the beginning, the big honking screens on Galaxy Note phones have been their most memorable characteristic. But as the rest of the smartphone world caught onto the jumbo display trend and screen sizes from various makers started to converge around six-inch displays, the throne on which Samsung’s Note phones lorded over lesser devices just didn’t have the same kind of sway. So now, the question is: What’s the purpose of a big ass flagship handset in 2018, especially one that starts at the pearl-clutching price of £899? Read More >>

CAT S61 Review: A Well-Rounded Rugged Phone, With a Hefty Pricetag

In this day and age, smartphones feel like they cost the Earth. The big names all seem to be loaded with gimmicks, and still seem as fragile as a champagne glass in an opera house. Then you have rugged phones, which are hardier and more durable, but are often overlooked because their primary focus is trade workers and people who need a phone capable of handling more dangerous situations.

That New Android Update Broke a Key Perk of the Pixel XL 

While some folks may be worrying about Google’s next phone, especially with leaks suggesting the Pixel 3 could sport the biggest notch we’ve seen on a handset yet, it seems Google may have more immediate concerns after the release of Android 9 Pie created issues with charging speeds on the original Pixel XL.

Finally, a Perfect Phone for Small Hands

Whether it’s because you’ve got small hands, prefer a more pocketable device, or simply don’t care about having a giant display, when it comes to truly small phones, there just aren’t a lot of options. Your choices are essentially the iPhone SE, the standard Pixel 2, and this: the Xperia XZ2 Compact. However, with Apple not having bothered to update the SE in more than two years, and the Pixel 2 having been cursed with a half-assed design that makes it seem like the neglected member of Google’s 2017 offerings, even those handsets have issues. I know small phones aren’t super popular, but it’s almost comical at how little effort companies put into making modestly-sized devices with competent specs. Read More >>

How Two Big Things Stopped the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 From Winning Me Over

After checking it out briefly when it first announced, I was prepared to hate the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4. Sporting outdated specs similar to last year’s Galaxy Note 8 (except with 2GB less of RAM and worse cameras), no fingerprint reader, and a price tag of £600 (and that’s not including its keyboard dock), the Tab S4's underlying components just didn’t make sense. And for all that, what was Samsung offering in return? A slightly larger screen with slightly smaller bezels and Samsung’s Dex software instead of Chrome OS? Read More >>
