One more thing: Apple announces iPhone X (pronounced iPhone Ten)

Apple had “one more thing” for us, because of course they did. The iPhone X, which is the iPhone Ten if you’re taking about it (nobody’s going to be calling it the X, folks), is indeed a thing and it’s indeed a whole lot of screen. A whole lot of OLED screen. For a change, the rumours were mostly right. That designer screen The rumours being mostly right also means th...[Read More]

Apple returns to glass, skips the S, announces iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus

We’re not quite sure what we were expecting. There was a lot of confusion about what Apple was going to call this year’s handset updates.

Nokia 8 is go for launch on 16 August

Recently revealed in a hard-to-deny image leak, the Nokia 8 was initially thought to have a 31 July announcement date. That was wrong. Instead, we’re going to be getting our first official look at the Nokia 8 on 16 August, the date that Nokia HMD have chosen for a London unveiling fo...[Read More]

Facebook has been posting some very Dr Evil-like numbers of late and their newest is also their largest yet. The social network is very pleased with itself, announcing that it has topped 2 billion monthly active users for the first time.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 sells more than 5 million units (and there’s a lot of year left to go)

Samsung’s well on its way to complete its bounce-back from 2016, with their new Galaxy S8 handset selling in excess of 5 million phones since launch. We already knew that Samsung was having a good year but we didn’t have anything more than vague percentages to back that up. 5 million, though… that’s a serious number for a phone that has been on the market for about six week...[Read More]

Hands-on with Samsung’s Galaxy S8 – Something to prove

Samsung has finally revealed the Galaxy S8, as well as its bigger, beefier brother the S8+, and it really had to turn the knob up to eleven and then break it off to make up for the events of 2016. We’ve had some time to actually handle the phone and we’re able to conclude that Samsung has probably achieved what they’ve set out to do. Most of our being is crying out for this hands...[Read More]

Watch the new OnePlus 3T being unboxed in the back of a fighter jet

There’s more than one way to unbox a phone but up till now we’d never seen anyone try to do it from the inside of a fighter jet. The OnePlus 3T gets that honour, if that’s the right term for it, thanks to a video sponsored by the company for the European launch of the new handset. The company got one Jake Paul to do the unboxing while in the back of a jet, sourced from the Czech ...[Read More]
