HTC One (M8) Unboxing


The HTC One was a popular and award winning handset for a number of reasons, so HTC have had to do something special with the 2nd generation HTC One (M8) to appeal to both existing and new users.

From the spec sheet it would look like they have done just enough to compete with other flagships, but that just enough becomes somewhat more meaningful when you hold the device in your hand and see what it looks like for real rather than in the photos.

The M8 has stiff competition from the likes of Samsung and Sony, however the stand out features such as Blinkfeed, BoomSound and HTC Zoe which made the original One unique have been improved upon and continue to differentiate the M8 from other similar handsets on the market.

We unbox the HTC One (M8) 2014 edition in the following video and a full review will be coming very soon.

Sony Xperia E1 Book Case By Roxfit


Protecting your new smartphone can be quite important for some people.

If you have made the decision that you want a case for your Sony Xperia E1, then the choice becomes as to which case to choose.

You could do a lot worse than selecting a Roxfit branded case.

Made under license by Roxfit for Sony devices, the case come branded with ‘Made for Xperia’.

There are a variety of styles but the one we unbox in the video below is the book case, which is available in Black or White.

Covering the back and sides of the device with a plastic shell the front is protected with a soft touch cover that protects the screen and that can be folded back when in use.

There are cut outs for the main ports and controls.

See the case in use below and find more information on the Black case here and the White one here.

KAZAM Trooper X5.5 Unboxing

KAZAM_TROOPER_5.5Over the last few months I have had hands on with a few of the KAZAM smartphone range.

It is easily to be critical of the product.  They are not particularly exciting nor do any of the devices make you go wow, I have not seen that before.

However, what can not be taken from KAZAM is their handsets offer what most of us need at a price point far below much of the competition in an all round no nonsense package.

The latest device I haven been using is the KAZAM Trooper X5.5.

Aimed at the Samsung Galaxy Note style devices, the 5.5 comes complete with a flip case in the box and retails for £150 all in.

In this £150 price tag you get a FREE screen replacement included if you manage to break yours within the first 12 months of ownership.  You can not deny, that is a great value added extra.

Some of the features of the KAZAM include:

  • Dual SIM functionality
  • 5.5″ touchscreen
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • Android OS
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • GPS

Check out our unboxing below and be sure to check back in about a week for the full review.

There is more to a smartphone than just hardware nowadays.  Software makes up such a big part of it and with devices like the HTC One, there is a lot of software features to look at test and consider.

Qi Wireless Charging Receiver Card for Samsung Galaxy S5

S5_QI_Wireless_Charging_ReceiverThe Samsung Galaxy S5 is just about to hit the shop shelves at the time of writing this post.

One of the features some would say it lacks is wireless charging.

This can be added through a replacement back cover or case. However there are are couple of downsides.  The phone becomes physically thicker and they are expensive.

Of course the added positive is that the the back cover and case are official Samsung accessories.

If you are however looking for a more cost effective solution, then a QI wireless charging receiver card could be a great option.

The card sits under the standard back cover of the S5 and connects to the appropriate connectors under the case.

The receiver card does not affect the NFC or the thickness of the device as it is sat inside the body of the phone.

Once inserted, the receiver will work with other QI enabled products such as a wireless charging pad be it the Koolpad or the official Samsung pad.

The receiver card is due to be available from late April and can be ordered here for a price of £16.80 including VAT.

CAT B100 Toughphone now available

CAT B100 5There are times and places where it’s not always convenient to have a top of the range smartphone. If you work outside, or in an environment not suitable for high end devices then the Cat B100 could be the perfect phone for you.

Whilst the B100 does not have the capabilities of modern web browsers and apps, 3G functionality is available so you can access the Internet for basic browsing and email retrieval.

Where the Cat B100 comes into its own is with its rugged nature. Rated to IP 67, the phone is dustproof and waterproof in freshwater up to 1.5 metres for half an hour. The military 810G protection rating also certifies the device for drops onto concrete up to 1.8 metres (6 feet).

Unlike other very bulky, rubber encased tough phones like the Cat B25, the B100 follows the same design as the B15 smartphone. The strength and durability come from a reinforced aluminium chassis with rubber surrounds only in the areas where they are most needed.

The result is a handset that can take some serious hits without being a complete brick. The keypad is also widely spaced with larger than average buttons, perfect for those with big thumbs or wearing gloves!
