If you needed a reason to buy yourself Sony's latest mobile offering, whether it's the XZ2 or its Compact sibling, Sony's just offered something that might make the decision quite a bit easier. It's offering a free PS4 or PSVR Headset to anyone who pre-orders either phone. Read More >>

Rumour Claims Sony is Developing a Bezel-Less Phone With a 4K Display

Take a minute and think of as many phones with 4K displays as you can. Chances are the only company that will come to mind is Sony, specifically the Xperia Z5 Premium and Xperia XZ Premium. Other phone companies seem to have stuck their displays with a maximum QHD resolution, at least for the time being. Sony isn't falling in line with the crowd and giving up 4K phones, however, with new reports from China claiming it has a bezel-less phone with a 4K display on the way. Read More >>

Here Are the Most Mesmerising Things I Saw at MWC 2018

Go to any big trade show and you will see plenty of things on show. Tech shows are no different, and even though MWC is primarily aimed at businesses and enterprise users, there was no shortage of interesting things on display. Most of it was mobile and 5G related, but there were plenty of wacky things on show that you could easily sit and watch for hours. Here are all my favourites. Read More >>

MWC 2018: It Doesn’t Feel like Sony’s Xperia XZ2 is Even Trying to Compete With the Big Dogs

When you think about the race to the top of the 'Best Smartphone' list over the last few years, you'll see names like Apple, Samsung, Google, LG, OnePlus, and maybe Huawei pop up time and time again. Back in the day, those lists would also include HTC and Sony, and while HTC seems to have been trying quite hard to keep itself up at the top, it's never felt like Sony was putting in a significant amount of effort.

MWC 2018: Did You Think the Landline Was Dead? Guess Again

It's 2018, and being in my 20s I have never personally owned a landline. My parents have one, but I don't. It's probably quite annoying for the Virgin Media salesman trying to upgrade my broadband, because that's yet another thing they can't try and upsell (I refuse to pay for a live TV service when I have the internet).  In fact, I'm not even sure whether or not the phone line into my house even works.

MWC 2018: Can Nokia’s Breezy New Sirocco Phone Stand Up to Samsung’s Mighty Devices?

As slick as the designs on the Galaxy S8 and the brand new S9 are, some people just can’t get down with all the changes Samsung makes to Android on the inside. It’s an understandable complaint, especially since just a few year ago, Samsung’s TouchWiz skin (which is now called the Samsung Experience), was often responsible for causing phones to lag. But what if there was a phone with the good looks of a late model Galaxy S, but with stock Android inside? Well here’s your answer, it’s the Nokia 8 Sirocco. Read More >>

Samsung Galaxy S9 Hands-on: An Unremarkable Looking Phone With Remarkable Insides

Today’s the day Samsung fans have been waiting for since the launch of the Note 8 last August. As you’re reading this there should be some sort of businessman or executive on stage revealing the brand new S9 and S9+ to the world. We were lucky enough to spend some time with the phone, all so we can pass on our thoughts to you lovely readers. Read More >>

Land Rover’s Explore Outdoor Phone is Smartphone That Can Handle All Your Wilderness Adventures

Outdoor activities are quite popular with people who aren't like me. Walking, climbing, sailing, they're all the kinds of things people love to do, but the issue has always been that the conditions they come with don't exactly play nice with the comforts of modern technology. Water, rocks, and the cold weather are all things that can  destroy your phone, and it's just not worth risking it with an expensive device. Read More >>

CAT’s Smartphone Range is Getting a Thermal-Sensing Upgrade With the New S61

Back in 2016 CAT launched the S60 smartphone, with a FLIR thermal imaging camera built in - a feature that basically gave the phone superpowers. It's been nearly two years, though, which is an eternity in smartphone time, so the S60 is getting a successor in the form of the S61. With it comes some much-needed upgrades to the thermal imaging camera, along with other tools many of you might be interested in. Read More >>

Sony’s Teasing a Brand New Phone Launch for MWC

Poor Sony. It hasn't really had that much attention as a phone maker the last few years, not since it became the first (and seemingly only) company to release a phone with a 4K display. But despite the Xperia Z5 being a distant memory, Sony hasn't given up and from the looks of things it won't be giving up anytime soon. Something new is arriving at MWC, and there's a teaser to try and drum up some hype. Read More >>

People Are Spending Thousands of Pounds on ‘Distinguished’ Mobile Phone Numbers in Iraq

The Samsung Galaxy S9 Might Finally be Getting Stereo Speakers

Since there are only 12 days between now and the day Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy S9 to the world, the world of phone rumours and leaks has gone into overdrive to spill the phone's many secrets before the big day. Today's revelation? The S9 might finally be benefiting from a set of stereo speakers. Read More >>

Honor’s Mid-Range Phone is Trying to Save Us From the £1000 Flagship

For the last few years, £600, £650, or maybe even £700 was all you needed to get a brand new top-of-the—line phone. But in 2018, a lot of people are going to tasked with a difficult choice: shell out another £200 or £300 to hit the increased price tags flagships are now demanding, or settle for something a bit more affordable. And at first, this proposition might sound like another frustrating aspect of an increasingly crazy product cycle, but it doesn’t actually have to be that way. That’s because there are mid-range phones like the £500 OnePlus 5T and this new £520 Honor View 10 (currently marked down to £450), that can make that second option feel less like a compromise and more like a good way to stop getting screwed.

Network Accidentally Reveals Samsung Galaxy S9 Specs Two Weeks Early

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 is set to take place on 25th February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but as is the way with modern phone launches it's basically a formality. Details about the S9 have been leaking since the release of the S8 (at the very least), so we already have a pretty good idea on what to expect. That doesn't mean we don't take notice when phone networks accidentally release the phone's specs ahead of time. Read More >>

Samsung Fans Better Prepare for a Ridiculously Expensive Galaxy S9

With less than three weeks to go until Samsung officially unveils it next flagship Galaxy S phone, leaks and rumours have already given us what seems like a pretty good look at the phone. And despite a body that’s almost indistinguishable from last year’s phone—especially from the front—the Galaxy S9 is shaping up to be a solid update. However, there is one tidbit of info regarding the S9 that is much less encouraging: Its price, which according to multiple reports will be higher than any Galaxy S phone ever before. Read More >>
