iPhone XR vs Huawei P20 Comparison

All-new iPhones are few and far between, but the XR is one of them. Some are calling it the ‘cheap’ iPhone, but that’s purely relative. What it is is a new size of iPhone which offers many of the flagship features you’ll find in the iPhone XS (and Max) at a lower price with some funky colour options. In the opposite corner of this particular fight is Huawei’s P20. This is only a few months old, appearing as it did back in the spring of 2018. It is a similar…

The Best Huawei Phones of 2018

You can’t ignore Huawei any more. With increasingly premium smartphones on the market, the Chinese company is having a very good go at challenging Samsung, LG and Sony. In fact, it now outsells Apple globally.  The company has flagship devices in its P and Mate lines that are among the best smartphones out there. The P series is slightly more mainstream thinking, while the Mates are often photo-minded phablets but the lines are beginning to blur. Luckily, we are left with excellent phones either way. But a Huawei phone doesn’t have…

iPhone XS Max vs Samsung Galaxy Note 9

Oppo Find X Review: The Future Isn’t Ready Yet

If this is the future of smartphones, we hope there are some refinements along the way. The Oppo Find X has one of the cleverest (not the best) designs in smartphone history, but with that comes too many caveats. The build quality is excellent, the cameras are better than expected and the sheer engineering on show is enough to make us swoon. But Oppo has poured so much attention into the design for the Find X, the phone that it chose to enter the Western market with, that it forgot…

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium Review: Elephant in the Room

Sony’s somewhat baffling roadmap and naming system for mobile phones continues and the latest to get the premium treatment is the XZ2. It’s the first Sony Xperia with dual rear cameras but at some serious cost. Find out why in our full Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium review. It’s normal for Sony to announce the Premium version a few months after the regular model, but the XZ2 Premium has taken a while to arrive since being announced in April – so it’s almost gone on sale the same day as the…
