What can you expect from the Nokia Lumia 530?

If your contract is up and you don’t fancy spending the big bucks on a new smartphone you could well be in luck, as the Nokia Lumia 530 has officially gone on sale this week.

The handset, which is the obvious successor to the immensely popular Lumia 520 budget phone, is available in all good high street retailers and online stores for a price of just £100 sim-free.

Powered by a Snapdragon 200 processor and 1.2GHz quad-core processor, the Nokia handset runs surprisingly fast.

512MB RAM and 4GB expandable memory handle all the storage in the Microsoft made device, which is also available in an array of colours to suit any taste.

Windows Phone 8.1 is the operating system that finds a home in the handset, boasting all of the latest features like Cortana, Windows’ very own voice operated assistant.

The Lumia 520 is available on all major UK networks, with contract deals based with the handset also on the shelves to help those handle a monthly budget.

Sharp Aquos Crystal Phone Revealed

20th Aug, 2014 | Comments Off

Will the Sharp Aquos Crystal be a hit?

Sharp isn’t the biggest name on the mobile market by any means, but it looks like it could be making some waves this year after officially revealing the Aquos Crystal phone.

Featuring a distinctive style, the Aquos Crystal sports a practically bezel-free design, making for an extremely attractive look.

The device boasts a 5” 720p display, making for high quality viewing angles, whilst also including 8GB expandable storage.

A Snapdragon 400 chipset assists a 1.2GHz quad-core processor under the hood, which gives the Sharp handset a mid-range feel.

If you’re a fan of your music then you’ll be thrilled to see Harman Kardon audio included in the Crystal phone, making for one of the most vivid audio experiences from a smartphone since HTC’s partner ship with Beats Audio.

Android 4.4.2 KitKat, 1.5GB RAM and a 2040mAh battery top off the specs of the soon to be released Sharp handset, that is currently being set-up for sale in the US and Japan.

Currently, the Sharp Aquos Crystal is being priced up at $240 in the US, which translates to approximately £145 here in the UK.

August 29th is being lined up as a possible release date for the Sharp handset, but details on a UK release haven’t been mentioned as of yet, so it could be a while before we see it on shelves here.

It’s safe to say that we can’t wait to give it a go, even if it does take a while for us to get our hands on it! Of course, if you don’t fancy waiting, you can take a look at our great smartphone deals here!

Sony to Release Low-End Phablet

13th Aug, 2014 | Comments Off

Can we really expect a low-end phablet from Sony?

The ever growing love of phablets seems to have taken off this year, with a number of manufacturers producing larger screened devices to help cope with the demand from the daily consumer. But one niche which hasn’t been taken on as of yet is the low-end phablet market, something that Sony has clearly seen an opportunity within.

Sony has become synonymous with producing quality smartphones; with the likes of the Xperia Z2 showing a superb amount of quality alongside powerful specs. But now it’s turning its attention to less powerful handsets, proven by its intention to release a low-end phablet.

Packing a 6.1” 480×854 display, it’s safe to say that the screen on the device won’t be the sharpest we’ve seen, and the rest of the spec sheet isn’t exactly mind blowing. A Snapdragon 400 chipset couples a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, whilst 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage also feature on the phablet.

With specs like these, the larger than life Sony phablet won’t be competing with other phablets on the market, giving it an open run for fans of larger screens without the budget to shell out for more expensive devices. However we haven’t been given a price tag or release date for the handset yet, so we shouldn’t count our chickens just yet.

If you don’t fancy waiting for this Sony phablet to hit the market, you can always take a look at all of our brilliant phablet deals right here!

We can expect more information about this low-end Sony device in the near future, with a possible release before Christmas, so make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ for all the details!

iPhone 6 to be Unveiled September 9th According to Leak

6th Aug, 2014 | Comments Off

When could we see the iPhone 6?

It looks like someone from apple might have blabbed sometime this week, after a site leaked Apple’s apparent media event date for the upcoming iPhone 6. The website Re/code released the information into the public domain, slating the event for Tuesday September 9th.

The website in question has a reputable standing within the technology market and has the enviable reputation of having ‘guessed’ every Apple launch date correctly. This could well be dumb luck of course, but it’s highly likely that they have a contact within Apple who is supplying them with information.

The strange thing about the leak though is the day it’s based on, with Apple normally favouring Fridays as opposed to weekdays, in an effort to build publicity over the weekends. This could mean that Apple has diverted away from the normal day of announcement, or it could mean the leak isn’t quite trustworthy.

Apple is expected to launch two version of the iPhone 6 in September, with a smaller 4.7” model being revealed alongside a phablet-esque 5.5” handset. Apple is also widely expected to launch the iWatch as well, coupling the latest Apple hardware with a smart watch for the first time.

As ever, Apple hasn’t commented on the leak, so we won’t be getting confirmation until the company itself releases invites to media for the event. Of course, if you don’t want to play the waiting game, you can always check out our other iPhone deals here!

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini Gets UK Release Date!

30th Jul, 2014 | Comments Off

Will the S5 Mini prove to be a success?

Samsung’s latest small smartphone has finally been given a UK release date, with the 7th of August being officially revealed by the South Korean company as its day of reckoning.

The Galaxy S5 Mini is the obvious follow-up to the hugely successful S4 Mini which was released last year, and takes a lot from the Galaxy S5 flagship handset released this spring.

The handset will be available in four colours; black, white, blue and gold and will retail at a rather expensive £398.95 sim-free, with contract handsets costing around £30/month.

Packing a 4.5” Super AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 1.5GB RAM and 16GB internal memory, the S5 Mini is one of the stronger small smartphones on the market though, so could well warrant its price tag.

Also included on the handset is a fingerprint scanner, heart rate sensor and an IP67 protection rating, meaning a quick dip in the sink won’t be leaving you with a toasted device.

You’ll be able to find the Galaxy S5 Mini online and in high street stores on August 7th, with all good phone retailers stocking the handset in some shape or form.

What are your thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini? Will you be grabbing it on release day? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Google+.
