The Sony Xperia Z3 on EE is currently £23.49 a month from e2save

Although not the freshest face on the block, the Xperia Z3 is still one of the better Android phones out there. The 24-month contract includes 1000 mins, unlimited texts, and 2GB of data allowance at £23.49 a month. You can even choose what colour handset you want, with black, green, orange and white versions available.

Positive reviews described the Xperia Z3 as a great all-rounder, with the highlights being its high build quality and its long-lasting battery life. Other than that, it isn’t a huge step up from the Z2, but it’s still one of the better Android phones out there, especially at the price of this offer. Thanks to goonertillidie for the tip!

Get a Used Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 for £160.99 from Currys via eBay

Get a Used Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 for £160.99 from Currys via eBay

Carl P  Mar. 24 at 16:20

Samsung Galaxy TabPRO 10.1 (Used) is currently £160.99 from Currys via eBay

While it isn’t a brand new item, you’ll save yourself £60 over the next best deal elsewhere for the Galaxy TabPro 10.1. As for the device itself, its size and form factor are highly rated, but its Magazine UI is definitely a divisive topic, despite being highly customisable. Still, for £160 it’s pretty good going if you’re in the market for a cheap Android tablet. Thanks to mcseguy @ HUKD!

Get an Unlocked LG G3 for just £219

Get an Unlocked LG G3 for just £219

Carl P  Mar. 24 at 15:53

The LG G3 Sim-Free is currently £219 from Smartfonestore

Coming in £40 cheaper than the next best deal elsewhere, this offer for an unlocked LG G3 is one of the best we’ve seen since its release. There’s a reason for this though – it’s not brand new. However, it is listed as ‘Grade A’, meaning it comes in the original box along with all its accessories

The Android-powered phone boasts an improved screen to match its size, and a revamped interface that is easier to use, although the casing reportedly feels a bit cheaper than previous models. Still, it’s a great deal for the price if you’re after a dependable Android handset, and is ready to be upgraded to 5.0 Lollipop. Thanks to Maroine80 @ HUKD!

The HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is a more attractive proposition at £296

The HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is a more attractive proposition at £296

Carl P  Mar. 24 at 13:13

The HP ElitePad 1000 G2 is currently £296 from IT Supplier

Despite the fairly impressive specs, the HP ElitePad 1000 G2 only really becomes a decent  Win8 tablet when paired with its accessories. Thankfully, this offer from IT Supplier sees the price fall to £296, making it the cheapest deal around by a significant margin. That should mean that buying essential add-ons like the ElitePad’s jacket (for an extra 20 hours of battery power) and the accessory dock (which adds USB 2.0 ports) to create a complete computing experience won’t break the bank overall. Thanks to crazyfrog79 @ HUKD!

Get the EE Buzzard 4G In-Car WiFi adapter for just £9.97 over at Currys / PC World

Get the EE Buzzard 4G In-Car WiFi adapter for just £9.97 over at Currys / PC World

Carl P  Mar. 24 at 11:10


The EE Buzzard 4G In-Car WiFi Adapter is currently £9.97 from Currys / PC World

Here’s a great offer for those needing a WiFi connection on the go, as Currys are asking for just a tenner for the EE Buzzard. It comes with 2GB of data connection pre-loaded onto its sim that lasts for 30 days (starting from when you first connect to it), and is capable of hosting up to 10 devices at a time via 4G. It’s also PAYG, meaning you can top it up as you need to beyond the initial 2GBs. Considering how prices elsewhere are two or three times the price here, it’s an absolute bargain. Thanks to Jelavic18 @ HUKD!

Anti-abuse filters arrive on Twitter for verified accounts

Anti-abuse filters arrive on Twitter for verified accounts

Carl P  Mar. 24 at 10:55

Early this year Twitter’s chief executive Dick Costolo admitted that the short-form social network needed to improve its ability to deal with online abuse, and it looks like they are finally putting those words into action. New algorithms have been added to the service which will detect threatening and abusive language, as well as scan for context, and will block tweets from a user’s timeline if it deems the content goes too far.

Before we all start celebrating, there are some limitations for now. Only verified users (those with blue ticks by their name) will qualify for these new filters for now, and the algorithms in question are only available in the app for Apple devices. Of course, there will be an option to turn off the new feature, allowing users to have an unfiltered experience if they so wish.

HTC One M9 Plus specs: 5.2in display, massive body, fingerprint sensor, Duo camera?

Lewis Curdie  Mar. 23 at 19:00

To be honest, we’d pretty much given up hope of the HTC One M9 Plus being a real thing, much like the rumoured One M8 Max (Ace) faded into nothingness this time last year.

However, a fresh HTC One M9 Plus rumour breathes new life into the idea, as well as some new specs.

12-year-old girl tries to poison mother twice after iPhone confiscation

Lewis Curdie  Mar. 23 at 18:00

We’ve heard all sorts of stories over the years about the lengths some people will go to for an iPhone, including the Chinese chap who sold a kidney, and the Chinese lass who offered to exchange her virginity for an iPhone 4.

The 12-year-old girl in this story already had an iPhone, but reacted in the worst possible way when it was taken away: by trying to kill her own mother. Twice.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 815, which hasn’t actually been announced yet, supposedly runs cooler than the troubled Snapdragon 810.

Facebook reportedly testing ‘call-blocking’ Phone app

Carl P  Mar. 23 at 15:00

It looks like Facebook are gearing up to put yet another app on your smartphone in another move that will concern fans of data privacy. A tip-off sent in to Android Police revealed that the social network giant is testing out a new app titled ‘Phone.’ Invites to test it were apparently sent out by mistake to Android users, but that didn’t stop someone from screen-grabbing it and passing on the details of what it will do.

Samsung Galaxy S6 pre-installed apps to be removable?

Lewis Curdie  Mar. 23 at 14:00

For years, Samsung has endured criticism pertaining to its laggy TouchWiz UI, but all signs point to significant improvement on the imminent Galaxy S6.

We heard before that only a few apps would be pre-installed on the Samsung Galaxy S6, and this latest rumour suggests those apps that do appear out of the box will, in fact, be removable.

Carl P  Mar. 23 at 13:30

HP Stream 7 Signature Edition Tablet is currently £49.99 with voucher code from Microsoft Store

UPDATED: A new code has now been issued, meaning there's still time to take advantage of this superb deal!

Those of you in the market for a Windows 8 tablet should definitely take note of this deal for the HP Stream 7 Signature Edition. By using the voucher code ft6kn75gg at the checkout, it knocks £25 off the asking price for this impressive piece of kit. While it is reportedly a bit chunky for a 7” tablet, it boasts impressive specs for its size including 32gb hard drive space, and comes with 1TB of online storage space along with a one-year subscription to Office 365. Best of all, it doesn’t include any extra software to slow the OS down. That’s pretty good going for the price. Thanks to chriswilsonuk @ HUKD!
