Huawei Mate 10: Everything we know so far

With winter almost drawing to a close (though you wouldn’t believe it over the past week or so), the smartphone world is gearing up for a busy Q3 launch window – and Huawei wants to be front and centre with the Mate 10. Last year’s Mate 9 was a beast of a phone, taking everything we loved about the P10 and making it bigger, better and more powerful. Plus it didn’t have to g...[Read More]

8 things you need to know about the Nokia 8

The ‘new’ Nokia’s first flagship phone is official, and it’s a bit of a doozy. With hardware specs that leave the cheaper Nokia 3 and Nokia 6 in the dust, a much slicker design, and the return of the familiar partnership with Zeiss optics for the camera (or should that be cameras?), the Nokia 8 looks every bit the high-end hero Nokia needs. But there’s more to it than...[Read More]

Nokia 6 — New Nokia, familiar looks – but that ain’t no bad thing

With HMD Global behind the helm, the Nokia 6 is the first ‘real’ new Nokia phone. It’s a mid-range handset at heart, then,...[Read More]

Sonic Mania — After two decades of mediocrity, the ‘hog is finally back on track

Are you sure we’re not back in the ‘90s? With everyone playing Crash Bandicoot, Wipeout and a spiritual Banjo-Kazooie successor, we’re starting to wonder whether we somehow passed out in a DeLorean during the New Year’s celebrations. Most interesting of all these retro rebirths, though, is Sonic the Hedgehog. He was one of the biggest stars of the decade, but ever since? He crashed harder th...[Read More]

iPhone vs the world: 2007-2017 — The best takes on the rest

Three things are certain in life: death, taxes and a new iPhone arriving every year.

Fujifilm XP120 — This tough cam proves that indestructibility needn’t cost the earth

Nokia 3 — Stand-out styling, but sub-power power

A flagship phone is like a tailored suit – sure, you pay more, but that’s because it’s been nipped and tucked in all the right places. The Nokia 3? It’s something you’d pick up in Mr Price, not from Prada. But when you’re paying less, it’s easier to forgive a few bulges and sags. With looks that punch well above the price and an unmolested version of Android, there’s a lot here to like ̵...[Read More]

The Apple Watch has had a pretty easy time of it in smartwatch town. But galloping over from a nearby town called Fitbit is a smart gunslinger who reckons this town is big enough for the both of them. Fitbit has confirmed that it is definitely building the logical evolutionary step from fitness trackers like the Blaze. To be fair, we had our suspicions when it bought Pebble and Vector last year.
