Moto G7 vs Honor 10 Lite: Which is Better?

For a few years now the Moto G series has represented good value in the Android smartphone market. Proving that you don’t need to pay through the nose to get a more than acceptable phone experience, the Lenovo-owned brand has made phones with decent build, good performance and attractive prices. While those prices rise a tiny bit each year, the Moto G7 is still wildly affordable. Luckily for competition’s sake, Honor has emerged as a like-minded smartphone brand with similar pricing. The Moto G7 and Honor 10 Lite are two…

Moto G7 review: Hands-on – Tech Advisor

We’ve always loved the Moto G series. It has long represented true smartphone value, and still does in an age where the high end now tops out at over £1,000 or dollars. Yikes. Much more reasonable is the £239 Moto G7. The flagship device of a four-phone G7 line up that all have notches (G7 Play, G7 Power and G7 Plus are the others), it promises better cameras and more new features besides. We went hands-on with the Moto G7 on launch day. Here’s what we think before we decide…

Ulefone Armor 6 Review: Brains Meet Brawn

The Armor 6 is a durable phone from Ulefone, mixing decent mid-range specs and long battery life with a tough outer shell, and is just the job for those who are known to break their phone as often as they break into a sweat. For extreme sports fans, labourers and the downright clumsy, this tough phone has their backs with IP68 waterproofing, Gorilla Glass 5, and a metal- and plastic outer shell that is strangely alluring with its rugged looks. Adopting the same full-display design as today’s flagships this trendy 19:9 smartphone,…

Following an October Chinese launch, Mi Mix 3 is coming to the UK on Wednesday 16 January where it will be available in its 6GB RAM, 128GB storage configuration for just £499 – an astonishing price for a flagship phone with some interesting new features. It’s all about the cameras and the display in the Mi Mix 3, which refines the already great Mi Mix 2S on two primary fronts. This new generation also includes a dedicated button for calling up either the Google Assistant or Mi AI client, depending on…

Royole FlexPai Review: Hands-On with the First Flexible Phone

While the phone industry wrestles with notches, pinhole cameras, and full-screen displays, there’s another massive smartphone revolution waiting in the wings: flexible displays. And while Samsung is expected to reveal its own in February, it’s been beaten to the punch by a little-known company called Royole. Royole is one of the companies that’s developed the flexible screen tech itself, but is making its proper smartphone debut with its own device, the FlexPai. We tracked it down at CES 2019 to give it a bend ourselves and see what it’s like.…

Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 Review: Best Budget Battery Life

Asus is not a big player in the western phone market but it quietly makes phones that are sometimes available globally. The iPhone X-esque ZenFone 5  caught our eye in 2018 so we have taken a look at one of its cheaper options, the clumsily named ZenFone Max Pro M1. We were drawn to it as it’s easy enough to import, runs stock Android and has a whopping 5,000mAh battery that lasts ages. It’s not as ubiquitous as the cheaper Moto and Honor phones in the UK but that doesn’t mean…

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review: The Honor 10 Lite with a Different Badge?

On the face of it, the P Smart 2019 is a bargain. It has a 6.2in screen with tiny bezels and the tiniest of notches for the selfie camera. It runs Android 9 Pie and performs well for the price, so what else could you ask for from a sub-£200 phone? Well, as it turns out, you can have a better phone for £199 and it comes from Huawei’s sub-brand Honor. It’s called the Honor 10 Lite. Huawei P Smart 2019: Price & availability Both the P Smart 2019 and…

Honor View 20 Review: Hands-on

These days, CES is dominated by laptops, TVs, and smart home tech, so it’s a little bit of a surprise to see Honor use the show as an excuse to show off its latest flagship device: the Honor View 20. Still, you can see why the company wants to put the phone in front of people at the year’s flashiest tech show: thanks to a punch-hole camera and a fancy ‘nanolithographic’ rear, the View 20 is a very striking device – even by Honor’s standards. Price and availability We’re not…
