Samsung Galaxy S20 / S20+ Review – A Mixed Bag, Not a ‘Must’ Upgrade

Samsung Galaxy S20 / S20+ Review – A Mixed Bag, Not a ‘Must’ Upgrade

It’s 2020, so why not the Galaxy S… 20. Rather than the S11, which is really what it is, a continued iteration from the decent S7, S8, the superb S9, and the slightly compromised S10. In essence, the S20 retains the ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor, which I was never that keen on, fiddles with the camera system – as Samsung does every year – and… gets rid of the popular 3.5mm audio jack and heart rate/blood oxygen sensors. The main attractions here then are probably the 2020 chipsets and increased RAM, plus the optional 120Hz display. But are they enough? Find out in my full Samsung Galaxy S20 review.

Google Pixel 4 XL Review – six weeks on, still early days for this flagship

Google Pixel 4 XL Review – six weeks on, still early days for this flagship

The Pixel 4 XL (and, by extension, the slightly smaller Pixel 4) is a stunning piece of technology and a worthy flagship. It really is. And yet, even six weeks on, I can’t possibly recommend anyone buy it… yet. While its camera system is stunning, while its stereo speakers are jaw droppingly good, while its face recognition system is fast and effective, at least for unlocking the phone, real world activity is still massively impacted by third party banking and password apps not supporting the new biometric APIs (think Face ID) system. Again… yet. It’ll all come together in time and, as usual Google will need an update or two of their own (a ‘feature drop’ is happening as I write this), so I’ll leave a lengthier verdict for some time in early 2020.

Google Pixel 3a to 3a XL: Differences, Hands-on Review

Google Pixel 3a to 3a XL: Differences, Hands-on Review

Last week, I reviewed the new Google Pixel 3a, concluding that it was a huge deal in terms of getting guaranteed updates and Google’s vision for Android (plus that excellent camera) to the true mainstream, at a price half or a third that of other top smartphones, many of which will be left high and dry in terms of support after a year or so. So here we have the Pixel 3a XL, the sister device and – obviously – larger. So what’s different and is there any more significance to the XL?

Which Color Pixel 3a or Pixel 3a XL Should You Buy — Clearly White, Just Black or Purple-ish?

Which Color Pixel 3a or Pixel 3a XL Should You Buy — Clearly White, Just Black or Purple-ish?

The Pixel 3a is Google’s first attempt at a mid-range device. And so far, it looks like they’ve delivered a great device. It’s the only mid-range Android phone with a great camera. If you’re looking for a great Android phone under $500, Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL are definitely worth considering. But the question remains. Which color Pixel 3a or Pixel 3a XL should you buy?

Google Pixel 3a Review: Peace of Mind and a Superb Camera for the Mainstream

Google Pixel 3a Review: Peace of Mind and a Superb Camera for the Mainstream

It has to be said that the Google Pixel 3a (and 3a XL, not shown here) is something of a work of material science magic. So much of this handset screams ‘premium Pixel’, yet it’s plastic and yet it costs less than £400 in the UK, roughly 60% the cost of last Autumn’s Pixel 3. So what’s missing, does it matter, and how will the Pixel 3a fare in the mainstream ‘normob’ market? Read on for my verdict!

Huawei P30 Pro Review: Impressive, Inconsistent Flagship!

Huawei is in the news for either all the wrong reasons — stealing tech secrets of U.S. companies, helping create backdoors in its products to aid the Chinese government spying activities — or for its impressive smartphones.

Huawei has managed to outdone Samsung in terms of the hardware and camera department with the P30 Pro but does that make it a better phone than the Galaxy S10. Find out in our review.
