  • The five top smartphones of 2012

    As another year draws to a close, you’ll start seeing an incredible amount of “best of” lists popping up and in the modern world, there are few of those lists which can be as relevant as this one, the best smartphones. We’re so attached to our devices that life before smartphones can seem a lifetime away for those lucky enough to have one, and when it comes to significant releases, 2012 has been a bumper year. This year has seen the release of some incredible handsets, and here are my top five: 5. Nokia Lumia 920 This is the only Windows driven...

  • Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini hands on: is smaller always more beautiful?

    Samsung has decided that it can milk more from the success of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and has punted out a lower-power little brother. Coming in without the quad-core power, the higher-spec battery or the huge screen with the impressive HD resolution, the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini is still a decent phone in its own right, with 1GB of RAM, a microSD card slot and the exact same styling as its predecessor, albeit in a much smaller form factor. However, coupled with a £300 price tag, you can see that the lack of high end features is going to hurt a device...

  • Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini rumored for 11 October release

    Samsung is possibly set to unveil the Galaxy S3 Mini in the coming weeks. Rumor mills have been working overtime following a leaked image of an invite to the German press. Spreken ze Deutsch? For those of you not fluent in German, the invite basically translates to “That’s how big small can be”. This has led many to believe that it refers to the S3 Mini which would be a welcome addition to the Samsung range. The rumored specs on the S3 Mini are a 4-inch AMOLED screen and 5 megapixel camera which immediately addresses the size issue of the S3,...

  • Too good to be true? Samsung to launch Galaxy S4 in February

    The Samsung Galaxy S4 will be unveiled at the 2013 Mobile World Congress according to “internal sources at Samsung who wish to remain anonymous.” With 99% of the iPhone 5 leaks being confirmed as legitimate and with the same phone being a contender for the device to have for 2013, the chances of the Galaxy S4 coming out next year is even money. This “leak” comes a mere three days after the launch of the excessively hyped, and poorly-received iPhone 5. Here’s what the unofficial “official” announcement says: “Samsung is ready to unveil the next Galaxy smartphone, the Galaxy S4, at early next year’s mobile world congress...

  • Reviewed: Acer Aspire S3 – beefy but boring

    The progress of technology is astounding. Every couple of years, computing power doubles. We keep packing more features into mobile devices. Features such as GPS, Accelerometers, Quad Core Graphics and resolutions so high you cannot distinguish the pixels anymore. My cellphone now has a faster processor than the Windows 7 machine I’m typing this review on. Notebook computers are getting lighter, faster and have more battery life than ever before. So you’d think that these days PC manufacturers would have figured out how not to f**k up the small things. Small things such as a basic build quality, input devices, speakers,...

  • The Samsung Galaxy S III: The new benchmark?

    Today’s launch event in London saw the end of months of fevered speculation on what Samsung’s next flagship device would bring. As the hype crescendo fades, we take a moment to reflect on what many consider to be the new benchmark for Android phones and possibly, the biggest threat to Apple’s best. Here are the details. The Samsung Galaxy S III has a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED display with a 720p (1280 x 720) resolution. Compared to the S II, the display is 22 percent larger, but the device itself is not much bigger due to a slimmer bezel. The S III has...

  • Samsung Galaxy S3 delayed and rumour roundup. Caught on video?

    Bummer. It doesn’t seem like the Galaxy S3 will be making its appearance later this month at MWC 2012 as rumoured. Samsung told Techradar that there will be a separate launch for the S3 in the first half of this year: Samsung is looking forward to introducing and demonstrating exciting new mobile products at Mobile World Congress 2012. The successor to the Galaxy S2 smartphone will be unveiled at a separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product. Samsung stays committed to providing the best possible mobile experiences for customers around the...
