OnePlus 7T Pro Review: The Best Smartphone We Can’t Recommend

The OnePlus 7T Pro was revealed today at an event in London, and while it might not like much has changed, the 7T Pro offers a range of enhancements that elevate the already impressive experience on offer from the 7 Pro earlier this year. That includes a faster processor, improved charge speeds and new camera features, but is that enough to tempt consumers from the equally impressive OnePlus 7T? Find out in our OnePlus 7T Pro review. Pricing and availability As revealed at the London event, the OnePlus 7T Pro…

OnePlus 7T Review: More Than a Spec Bump

Following a flurry of teasers from OnePlus itself, the company took to the stage at an event in New Delhi, India to reveal the iterative upgrade to the current line-up, the OnePlus 7T. As with previous “T” iteration smartphones, the OnePlus 7T sports upgraded internals, but there’s much more to it this time around. We’ve spent a lot of time texting, calling, snapping and gaming on the OnePlus 7T, and here’s our full review. Price & Availability OnePlus has always offered high-end smartphones at a discount price, and that’s not…

Motorola One Zoom review: Solid mid-range

Motorola presented us with two new phone models at IFA, which took place this September. The first of these is a lower mid-range device with very decent specs, and a price that is even better. We liked the Moto E6 Plus (that’s what the budget model is called) for its good battery life, strong performance and good value for money. The second of the phones that Motorola presented (and the one which we will be talking about in this article) is the Motorola One Zoom, a new entry in the…

Vivo V17 Pro Review: Out of Sort Import

Vivo has not officially made its way into the European smartphone market yet unlike fellow Chinese manufacturers OnePlus, Oppo, Huawei and Xiaomi. But that doesn’t mean you should avert your phone-buying gaze from Vivo phones. The V17 Pro is an interesting mid-range option at the business end of 2019. It has premium features like a pop-up selfie camera, bezel-less display, in-screen fingerprint sensor and four rear cameras but sells for around half the price of default flagship phones like the iPhone 11, Samsung Galaxy S10 or the OnePlus 7T Pro.…

Sony Xperia 5 preview: A tough sell

Announced at an otherwise quiet IFA 2019 for Sony, the Xperia 5 is a cheaper version of June’s flagship Xperia 1. Sony has developed a clear strategy in an attempt to differentiate itself from the competition- focus on what it’s good at and fully commit to it. In the case of smartphones, it’s a cinematic, immersive viewing experience which simulates a true widescreen TV. The 21:9 aspect ratio is natively supported by Netflix for many of its films, while stereo speakers and Dolby Atmos support aim to provide premium sound.…

Google Pixel 4 Review: Pixel Imperfect

The Pixel range – the closest thing to a ‘pure’ Android experience out there – has become known more than anything else for its phenomenal cameras. But in a year that’s seen ballooning megapixel counts, extreme telephoto zooms, and Pixel-rivalling night modes from almost every phone manufacturer out there, what can Google do to stay a step ahead? The answer apparently is to do the one thing Google said it never needed to do: throw in a second lens. That’s the first of several major hardware changes to the device,…

Vivo Nex 3 Review: A Nex-Gen Flagship

The Vivo Nex 3 is the company’s first foray into 5G as part of its Nex line, and it’s going all out, with headline-grabbing specs from the display to the cameras, together with novel design choices like ditching physical buttons (almost) entirely. With a design that’s reminiscent of Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro – announced just a week after the Nex 3 – it’d be easy to overlook Vivo’s phone, but with a notchless display and Google app support, this might have the edge on the Mate in at least some…

Elephone U2 Review – Tech Advisor

It’s difficult to believe this is a circa-£200 phone when you take it out the box. Tested here in blue, but also available in red or black, the Elephone U2 has a premium design with a virtually full-screen IPS panel, its ultra-slim bezels and concealed selfie cameras ushering in a high screen-to-body ratio of 93%. Some impressive glasswork front and rear adds to the overall effect, and to the eye this is a good-looking mid-ranger with an incredibly low price point. At the time of writing Elephone’s U2 is available…

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 vs Note 9: S Pens At The Ready

Samsung has updated its flagship Note range once more with the unveiling of its new Galaxy Note 10. This iteration brings with it some new features as well as the retirement of some older ones. So, is it worth selling your Galaxy Note 9 and making the leap to the latest and greatest? We see how the two models compare. For a full look at the new device read Samsung Galaxy Note 10: Hands-on review. Price and availability The Galaxy Note 10 was revealed at Samsung’s Unpacked event on 7…

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ Review: Hands-on

As you now know, there’s a plus size model of the Galaxy Note 10 so you need to choose which of Samsung’s phones to get. We’ve been hands-on with the Note 10+ and here’s our initial review. Plus phones are nothing new in the smartphone world but Samsung has never gone this far with the Galaxy Note range. Arguably, the firm has never had to considering the long standing premium phablet status of the handset. Previous models aside, the Note 10+ is the Galaxy device you go for if you…
