Hands On With The Huawei P10: Behind The Keynote Bullshit Is One Nice Looking Phone

The problem with a phone launch event is that there are only so many times that you can watch an executive say in front of an enormous projection screen that their new rectangle - the one that their company has spent a year working on - is the most innovative thing since sliced bread. So it is pretty easy to become jaded. Read More >>

Huawei’s Watch 2 Is The Launch Of A Revitalised Android Wear

Huawei P10 vs P10 Plus: Which One Should UK Folks Go For?

Huawei's just unveiled its two flagship phones at Mobile World Congress: the P10 and the P10 Plus. They're follow-ups to the Leica-cobranded P9, and once again there's a big focus on photography (pun totally intended) - and, slightly oddly, colours. There are 8 of them, globally. Read More >>

How to Take the Best Pictures with a Dual-Lens Camera

Some of the biggest names in the smartphone business—including Apple, LG and Huawei—now make phones with dual-lens cameras installed, and other manufacturers are tipped to follow suit soon. Not all phone makers use two lenses in the same way: on the Huawei P9 one takes shots in black and white to tease out more information about light, whereas on the iPhone 7 Plus you get the advantage of 2x optical zoom for a closer look at your subjects (one lens is wide-angle, and one is telephoto).

The Guy From The ‘Get A Mac’ Ads Has Switched To Android

Everyone remembers the "I'm a Mac" "And I'm a PC" ads - mainly because they were one of the only tech ad campaigns ever to be not only not-terrible, but also actually funny. Or maybe just because somehow, there were over 60 of them. Read More >>

Selfie Exhibition Examines History of Doing Things Right Yourself

People always used to shy away from the camera lens in the olden days, saying things like "Please, no, I'm hideous" and "Point that thing at me again and I'll kill you" -- until the ability to delete photos, repose, smile the way that hides your wonkiest teeth and try again was introduced by the digital era. Now everyone seems to be happy with their faces as long as they can spend half an hour getting it to look best. Hence an art exhibit looking at the history of the selfie. Read More >>

Reminder: It’s Not Cool To Exploit Your Fanbase, Honor

Phone brands know how valuable their audiences are. The dedicated Apple fanbase has been a large part of the firm's success, and OnePlus's almost obsessive community has propelled the little-known brand to international success in record time. So it makes sense to keep fans in the loop and give them backstage access whenever possible, to top-up their enthusiasm and keep them on board. Read More >>

Huawei Builds Alexa into Android

Huawei Fit Gives Fitbit a Run For Its Money

The smartwatch and fitness tracker markets might be in a race to the bottom, but that hasn’t stopped Huawei, the Chinese phone maker, from tossing a watch-shaped tracker into the ring. It’s an interesting tack for a company known primarily for its phones. The Huawei Fit looks like the Pebble Round smartwatch, functions like a Fitbit Charge, and costs less than both. Read More >>

The Huawei Mate 9 Rises From the Note 7’s Ashes, But Has the UK Been Snubbed?

The Pixel XL and iPhone 7 Plus followed it into the world, but there’s still a Note-shaped hole in the smartphone market. Without wanting to rub salt into Samsung’s wounds, I have to reiterate that the Note 7 was looking like a potential phone of the year before it went up in flames. Huawei’s looking to capitalise on its South Korean rival’s spectacular failure with the Mate 9. Read More >>
