Oppo N3 shows up with freshly tweaked swivelling camera

Oppo N3 shows up with freshly tweaked swivelling camera

Martin James  3 days ago

Last year's Oppo N1 was noteworthy for two reasons: first, the whole CyanogenMod business, and secondly for its quirky camera you could swivel to face either the front or the back as desired.

We've no idea how well it actually sold, but clearly it was well enough that Oppo thinks it's worth having another crack: feast your eyes upon the forthcoming Oppo N3.

Clove: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 price set at £575 SIM free; no Galaxy Note Edge for UK

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge were launched a couple of weeks ago, though several key details remain elusive, most notably pricing and a release date for both, and - in addition - regional availability for the Edge.

Clove is the first UK retailer to blink, offering to hook you up with a SIM free Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for just (ahem) £575, while revealing that the Galaxy Note Edge won’t be available in the UK at launch - not officially, at least.

HTC's Double Exposure event to focus on the Eye?

Martin James  3 days ago

It's been nearly a week since invites went out for HTC's “Double Exposure” event in New York on 8 October, and we still have no idea what the whole thing is about.

We may, however, have a name for HTC's mystery device – one that fits nicely with the clear focus on photography implied by the invite: the HTC Eye.

Apple iPhone 6: demand to outstrip supply until November?

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

Apple finally lifted the lid on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last Tuesday, and it came as little surprise to hear that the phones quickly set pre-order records. Indeed, writing in a press release yesterday, Apple proudly revealed that pre-orders topped four million in the first 24 hours.

As per annual tradition, it’s suggested that new-iPhone demand will exceed supply at launch (quelle surprise), but this time around, we’re told it might take until November for things to balance out. Sacré bleu, as the Russians say.

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are now a reality, and all set to go on sale this coming Friday. Question: Which one should you buy?

In layman’s terms there’s a big one (the iPhone 6) and an even bigger one (the iPhone 6 Plus), but there’s a little more to the story than that. Fortunately, some dude has drilled deeper below. Check it out.

EE’s Cash on Tap now active on London Tube, DLR and Overground

Lewis Curdie  3 days ago

Back in July this year, EE fired out a meaty press release declaring that its customers would soon be able to pay for travel on the London Tube, DLR and Overground using their phones.

Fast-forward to September 16, and you’ll never guess what’s happened. That’s right; said contactless payments are now live around the capital.

Dodo Master iOS review

Lewis Curdie  4 days ago

Ever seen a dodo with a teapot on its head jump on top of a giant spider, causing it to explode in a burst of orange light? Me neither. Until last night, that is.

Dodo Master comes from the mind of Semir Saleh (and Semir only, he jokes modestly in his email), and it might just be one of the best platformers the App Store has seen to date.

With Android One, Google has its eyes on “the next five billion”, offering affordable phones with decent specs – and a handful of other neat twists. Positivity abounds below.

Apple A8: marginally better than Apple A7

Lewis Curdie  4 days ago

One of the headline features of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is the spanking new Apple A8 processor, with its 64-bit architecture and M8 motion coprocessor.

The Apple A8 chipset has now been put through its paces, with benchmark scores suggesting it’s – surprise, surprise – a wee bit better than last year’s Apple A7.

LG G Flex 2: smaller display, higher resolution?

LG G Flex 2: smaller display, higher resolution?

Lewis Curdie  6 days ago

One of the most pointless phones of last year, for our money, was the Samsung Galaxy Round, an utterly bizarre device that was curved around the vertical axis. What the...?

Slightly less pointless was the LG G Flex, which was at least sensibly curved around the horizontal, though the specs left a lot to be desired - particularly as pertains to the display.

Enter: the LG G Flex 2.

If you thought Motorola calling the new Moto X the Moto X was confusing, things are about to get, well, a little more confusinger.

The US has had Google Play Edition phones in the past with stock Android; Motorola’s Moto X "Pure Edition" does away with carrier bloat, yielding a near-stock experience.

Lewis Curdie  6 days ago

We were saying yesterday that the Apple site seemingly had trouble coping with the initial influx of iPhone 6 pre-orders, and that waiting times were already hitting several weeks for certain models.

In case there was any doubt about the iPhone 6’s popularity, Apple has confirmed that it’s set some sort of pre-order record.
