Lenovo Golden Warrior S8 is a wallet-friendly, er, warrior

On these shores, Lenovo hasn’t made much of an impact smartphone-wise, and is perhaps best known as the Chinese manufacturer what done swooped in and bought Motorola from Google earlier this year.

To be honest, that’s unlikely to change with this new chap, but it’s worth mentioning for its name alone. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Lenovo Golden Warrior S8.

Coming soon: plastic HTC One M8

Considering the HTC One M8’s aluminium body is one of its key selling points, and one of the things that sets it apart from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5, you’d be forgiven for frowning at the notion of a plastic HTC One M8.

But apparently such a device is heading to China as early as next month – just one month after the release of the aluminium chap. Confused? Read on!

Lewis Curdie  4 days ago

April 11, last Friday, marked the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5 in a whopping 125 countries, and of course what we all want to know is: how well is the thing selling?

According to an early report from out of South Korea, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is – in some territories – more than doubling initial sales of the Galaxy S4.

Five reasons why the HTC One M8 is better than the Samsung Galaxy S5 (by HTC)

While Five reasons why the HTC One M8 is better than the Samsung Galaxy S5 possibly sounds like the kind of feature I’d pen during the week, this is actually an HTC production.

Yes, HTC has kindly fired out a training document for sales reps explaining why its latest flagship is better than Samsung’s.

Review of the week

Review of the week

Lewis Curdie  6 days ago

And so ends another week in which I largely ignored the world of mobiles in favour of galavanting around and stuff. Don’t worry; I’ll be going into super-overdrive – aka punishment – mode next week.

The big story this week was probably the global release of the Samsung Galaxy S5, while the story about Samsung's legal action against ET News grabbed the most comments.

Vodafone Smart 4 Mini: 4in, dual-core, £50

Vodafone Smart 4 Mini: 4in, dual-core, £50

Lewis Curdie  Apr. 11 at 16:00

There’s no shortage of wallet-friendly smartphones at the moment, with the £100 Motorola Moto G really making people question if any phone is worth £500 – five times as much as the Moto G.

Chances are the Vodafone Smart 4 Mini won’t have quite the same impact, but it’s worth noting for its £50 price tag.

Good news if you happen to use Google Play Music and own some fancy Sonos wireless speakers.

The chaps at Google and Sonos have teamed up to make it possible to stream music directly from the Play Music app to Sonos hardware. Lovely.

Samsung Galaxy S5 global release date arrives

It seems like only yesterday that good old “Life Companion”, the Samsung Galaxy S4, came along and did, uhm, all the things that smartphone flagships do.

Just shy of one year later, its successor has touched down. I speak of the all singing, all dancing, all heart monitoring Samsung Galaxy S5.

Samsung takes legal action over negative Galaxy S5 press

Samsung takes legal action over negative Galaxy S5 press

Lewis Curdie  Apr. 10 at 16:00

Let’s face it; a good portion of the news we relay is of the negative variety, whether it’s delays, or production problems, or poor working conditions, or financial losses…

It comes as somewhat of a surprise, then, to learn that Samsung is going after one particular South Korean publication, after it refused to retract a vaguely negative story pertaining to the Galaxy S5.

Martin James  Apr. 10 at 11:00

The Sony Xperia Z2 will officially be available across the UK from the 1st of May – putting to rest fears that Sony's Android flagship would be held up for a while yet due to supply issues.

Even better, several mobile retailers and service providers, including Carphone Warehouse, Phones4U, Vodafone and EE, say they will have the Xperia Z2 in stock as soon as the end of this week.
