Roughly every six months we let you know what devices the staff here at Clove use.
We get to handle many different phones. Many we sell, some we chose not to. However you look at it many would argue that we have the pick of the bunch.
Regretfully we can’t all just pick and chose a new phone as and when we want it, but we do get the benefit of testing handsets before we decide.
Also whilst our staff may work with and sell the latest phones, it does not necessarily mean they are using them.
So here is the list of devices some members of staff are using and their thoughts. What is interesting is how many of us actually hold onto handsets for many months, which may surprise some.
So in no particular order, here is a list of what some of us use.
Chris Love – LG G3
I have recently changed my Smartphone to the LG G3 from the HTC One. I choose this mainly due to its large 5.5 inch screen, yet slim and stylish design. The LG UI allows some cleaver customisation and I like the Knock Code feature, where I can tap the screen in a simple sequence to turn on, but still have a level of security over this. Moving the buttons to the rear make this a very clean design and programming these as shortcuts for the camera is useful.
The screen quality is excellent and due to its 2.5GHz quad core processor it is very fast in all applications, battery life is good, but not exceptional, however the wireless charging is a very convenient feature. Sound quality from the speaker is good, but having been used to the front facing speakers on the HTC One, not such a strong performer on this score.
I am however overall very pleased with the G3 and think it is one of the most stylish Smartphones available at this time.
