Top 5 Halloween games for mobile (deals inside!)

Lewis Curdie  3 hours ago

I’m not sure if it’s purely symptomatic of my becoming an old man and associating exclusively with similarly ancient humans, but Halloween is fast becoming every bit as popular as – if not more so than – Christmas. Once synonymous with kids chapping on strangers’ doors and asking for sweet candy (something that’s almost unthinkable in this day and age), us old folk have seemingly claimed Halloween as an excuse to dress up in stupid costumes and drink copious amounts of booze.

Anyway! The other thing you’ll want to do - in addition to getting drunk while dressed as a zombie or Batman or zombie Batman - is grab a selection of suitably scary games for your smartphone and/or tablet, and I’m here to point you in the right direction. Top 5 Halloween games for mobile below, baby.

LG says ‘Die, bezel!’ with new 5.3in display

Lewis Curdie  Yesterday

The Sharp Aquos Crystal is probably the closest we’ve come to the elusive bezel-less smartphone, but LG seems intent on going one step closer.

LG Display has officially unveiled what it describes as – deep breath – the “world’s narrowest 0.7mm bezel FHD LCD panel for smartphones”.

EE’s 300Mbps 4G+ is go! Er, in Central London. On certain phones. And certain plans

EE’s 300Mbps 4G+ is go! Er, in Central London. On certain phones. And certain plans

Lewis Curdie  Yesterday

To be fair to EE (formerly Everything Everywhere), it’s generally ahead of the game when it comes to UK 4G, and indeed it’s officially the first UK mobile network to offer LTE-A technology – or LTE-Advanced to use the name on its birth certificate.

EE is calling its LTE-A service 4G+ - not be confused with plain old 4G, or EE’s existing Double Speed offering. Facts and figures below.

Five reasons to buy an iPhone 6 Plus over a Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Lewis Curdie  Yesterday

I feel I should start with a disclaimer, lest I find myself burned at the stake as Head Apple Fanboy. See, I’m intentionally donning the iBlinkers here and being, well, not biased exactly, but admittedly one-sided. However! I’ll follow up next week – in the interest of fairness – with an equally one-sided take from the opposite side of the fence.

What the hell am I rambling on about? Oh, just five reasons to buy an iPhone 6 Plus over the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Hear me now.

Samsung Mobile: back to the drawing board

Lewis Curdie  Yesterday

We were saying just yesterday that LG is having a great old time in smartphones at the moment, while its South Korean cousin, Samsung, is struggling to hold onto that top spot amid fierce competition.

Samsung recently endured its worst quarter in years, so it comes as little surprise to hear that the world’s number one (for now) is reassessing its smartphone strategy.

BlackBerry's Passport launch got plenty of coverage recently – rightly so, as it's clearly one of the most groundbreaking new devices launched all year.

But what's the latest on the other new 'Berry we're waiting for – you know, the BlackBerry Q20 Classic first outed by BB boss John Chen all the way back in February?

République Episode 3: Ones & Zeroes iOS review

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

I was impressed by – though maybe not completely in love with – République Episode 1, and further won over by République Episode 2: Metamorphosis, ultimately musing: “If it continues improving like this, I might even be sold on the idea of it setting a ‘new benchmark’ for mobile gaming."

République Episode 3: Ones & Zeroes is available now through the App Store and Google Play, and – I’m pleased to say – it’s the best episode yet.

Motorola's mighty Droid Turbo may be headed to the UK

Martin James  2 days ago

Motorola launched a new smartphone yesterday, the 2.7GHz quad-core, 5.2in QHD Droid Turbo. Pretty special? Yes.

So why didn't we cover it, you ask? Simply because like so many Droid-branded Motos before it, the Droid Turbo is US-only, being a Verizon exclusive. But wait! There's hope.

Huawei Honor 6 available now in Europe, a whole lotta smartphone for £250

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Remember the Huawei Honor 6? It launched in Beijing way back in June this year, but only now, four months later, is it making its way to Europe.

But we'll forgive the Chinese chap's tardiness, as the Huawei Honor 6 offers entirely decent specs at a reasonable half-the-price-of-some-flagships price point.

LG shares impressive 3Q14 results, 16.8 million smartphones sold

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Samsung is still technically King of Smartphones, but it’s really struggling to hold onto that reputation of being an unstoppable juggernaut, as evidenced by its disappointing quarterly results.

Fellow South Korean manufacturer LG is a few places down the Top 5, yes, but it’s had yet another record-breaking quarter, its best quarter, in fact, since 2009.

Oppo N3 launches with 16MP motorised camera, Oppo R5 is world’s thinnest smartphone

Lewis Curdie  2 days ago

Today was the day for Oppo pulling back the fancy red curtain on its latest wares, and as promised late last week, we’re looking at not one but two new smartphones.

They are the Oppo N3 (left), notable for having a motorised front/rear camera, and the Oppo R5 (right), which dethrones the Gionee ELIFE 5.1 to become the latest “world’s thinnest smartphone”.
