But - like any intelligent person - you'll have been looking around at other smartphone platforms, eyeing up shiny new phones. Posted by Steve in Features Comments A review of a smartphone that doesn't run Symbian on AAS?
Actually yes - it's my first look at the new Nokia 6, running Android. And it's here because it's the return of the classic Nokia brand that I've written about so many times on these sites. The personnel behind it are mostly different, the OS certainly is, but is it worth casting a look in the 'new' Nokia's direction? Posted by Steve in Reviews Comments Over the years I've reviewed dozens of smartphone accessories, maybe even hundreds. But, of this mass of plastic, metal and, often, lithium, which accessories really made the grade?
Which ones do I personally carry around with me on any trip out of the house of more than a few hours? Here's a glimpse into my standard kit. The tech media has been falling over itself in the last week to talk about the ten year anniversary of the Apple iPhone, that moment when Steve Jobs revealed the shape of smartphones to come.
All singing, all dancing? Revisionist history says that the iPhone introduced all the features we see in today's smartphones, but that's not accurate With every rating that the much-quoted DxOMark site puts out for phone cameras, the more I think that it's missing a healthy dose of real world experience and use cases.
Not to mention a few key phone models e. Given that I've tested the majority of recent smartphones for AAS and then AAWP, usually against the best of the competition, I wanted to aggregate my experience into my own 'Top 10' camera-phones of all time. The naming of Microsoft's latest Windows 10 branch as the 'Creators Update' has been viewed from some quarters as somewhat hollow from the perspective of mobile, since the new 3D and Ink features are not mirrored on the phone.
Yet in some ways, this is the desktop catching up - we've been 'creating' on smartphones for over 10 years now, I'd argue. With some of may all time favourite power banks reviewed here , here and here recently, what possible reason could I have for featuring one more? It is, in fact, jaw droppingly impressive - despite an otherwise less-than-cutting edge electrical spec.
It's that time of year, when the sun starts making regular appearances in the sky and when I start to think about walks, camping and the great outdoors. Which means smartphone accessories that - ideally - prove really useful, doing multiple jobs with minimal bulk.
In this case, a USB power bank that you can leave facing the sun to charge itself from empty, and which doubles as a powerful flashlight or tent lantern. Wrapping up MWC week, and with Rafe exhausted after , steps in five days, I wanted to provide at least a taste of this year's show, via Rafe's Twitter feed, via my own analysis, and so on. My series 'Anatomy of a Lumia photo' here's 1! Anyway, here goes another, reverting back to the Lumia XL again - light is again one of the key themes.
