Samsung’s Cheapest Flagship is a Great Phone in a Weird Time

Samsung’s Galaxy S20 is the company’s most affordable flagship, which isn’t saying much: the 6.2-inch smartphone costs £899. It is a very good phone with a very good – dare I say the very best – display of almost any phone on the market (the only better panels being the S20's larger siblings, the S20+ and S20 Ultra). In normal times, I’d say the Galaxy S20 is obviously worth the asking price. Read More >>

Huawei’s Flagship P40 Pro+ is Pushing the Limits of What a Smartphone Camera Can Do

The Samsung Galaxy S20+ is the Best Android Has to Offer Right Now

After checking out the Galaxy S20 Ultra, it’s difficult to forget it’s brawny build, avalanche of specs, and the impressive reach of Samsung’s Space Zoom. Unfortunately, it’s also a bit too expensive to love. At that price, the S20 Ultra has to be head and shoulders better than every other phone on the market, and it just isn’t. But perhaps the best argument against the S20 Ultra is the existence of the S20+, because for 15 percent less money, the S20+ delivers 95 percent of what you get from its more expensive sibling. So if you’re looking for a high-end Android phone with tonnes of bells and whistles, the S20+ is the one to get. Read More >>

A Smartphone With a Behemoth Battery You Could Actually Slip in a Pocket

When it comes to making phones with prodigious battery life, it’s easy to slap on a humongous battery and call it a day like Energizer did for its dummy thick P18K Pop last year. But for people who don’t like carrying a brick around, there’s now an alternative in the Doogee N100. Read More >>
