Honor 9 Charm Sea Blue SIM Free UKIn the past few years, Honor has slowly stolen the limelight from a number of established global brands.

Honor’s phones have evolved from simple and affordable options, to some of the most sought after models in the current market. All without sacrificing their relatively low price tags.

Their 2017 flagship, the Honor 9, has specifications to rival the cream of the smartphone world. Impressive dual camera technology is matched by some beautiful industrial design and powerful processing.

Pound for pound, this could well be the best power-to-price available in 2017.

Honor 9 Features

Honor 9 SIM Free UK RearIf you want premier features at a low price, then the Honor 9 is the phone for you. The Huawei Kirin 960 processor is on a par with chips from Qualcomm and Samsung, delivering a high speed octa-core performance and top-level graphical fidelity.

The rear of the phone houses a dual camera set up. This includes one 20MP monochrome (black & white) sensor, flanked by a 12MP RGB module.

Black and white photography can be natively, rather than with post-processing filters. The combination of sensors can also provide a hybrid 2x optical zoom, plus additional Bokeh depth-of-field effects.

The screen is a fairly standard 1080 x 1920 panel, at a moderately sized 5.15″. Probably the least exciting part of the phone, this is where savings have likely been made. Still the size and resolution are perfectly acceptable to most.

Other notable features include the front-adorned fingerprint sensor with ceramic cover. This also doubles as the home button and navigation key. The rear of the phone is stunning too, with a 15-layer optical coating to the glass that reflects light at every angle.

Honor 9 Key Specifications

Unless you live in an Adele video, most Western consumers would be forgiven for considering flip phones a dead form factor. However it remains popular further afield.

It might be a fashion thing. Perhaps there’s an affinity for typing graphic languages on physical keys that suits this design. The lower retail cost versus smartphones is also no doubt attractive in emerging markets too. Whatever the reason, flip-phones have never truly gone away.

The Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 hit the news last week after being announced in Seoul. Many Western-oriented outlets looked at it with a sort of puzzled interest. Headlines were a touch snarky, boiling down to “Flip Phones – Remember Them LOL?” Yet in Samsung’s native Korea, along with other areas, this is simply an up to date version of a popular design.

The launch in Korea follows initial sales in China, so Samsung have committed to launching in more than one market. I doubt though that the phone will ever see an official release outside of Asian regions.

Personally I’d quite like to play with the Folder 2. This is far from a ‘dumb’ or feature phone, although evokes the same sensibilities. I think both the design and ideal it represents have a place.

Powered by Android 6.0 with a Snapdragon 425, this is a decent mid-tier specification. The small screen though dials back the phone’s capabilities. You won’t be binging GLOW on this.

Nostalgia meets modern function

I think the Folder 2 and similar phones would appeal to those caught up in a recent desire for simpler technology. They also do this without completely sacrificing modern conveniences.

Phones like the new Nokia 3310 caused a disproportionate amount of media hype for a feature phone. Nostalgia seemed to outdo common sense. I wonder just how many potential 3310 customers are actually aware of that particular handset’s limitations (2G only, no Whatsapp or even email etc.)

There is a reason technology moves steadily forward. Smartphones and the converged communication technology they integrate have changed our world. Yet for many, the ‘superphone’ is an unnecessary extravagance. Even highly-affordable smartphones such as the Moto C are not desired by those who simply don’t want a full touch device.

The Android flip phone could be the best possible bridge here. This marries a familiar and convenient form factor (it’s very difficult to break the screen!), with enough modernisation to be useful. It also addresses a whole host of accessibility issues for those who find all-touch devices difficult to use.

So would you be interested in an Android flip phone? Because oddly I think I would…

Xperia XZ Premium SIM Free UKWith their own imaging wing, Sony have long used their own sensors for mobile phones. In fact, many other mobile manufacturers use Sony sensors when they become available.

Not always part of the recent smartphone conversation compared to iPhone and Samsung, the Xperia range has always looked to push boundaries in a different way.

The competition often produces over-saturated colours with heavy post-processing effects. With a Sony smartphone, the results tend to be more natural – leaving it up to you to do the post editing.

Built using technology from the respected α™ and Cyber-shot™ ranges, the MotionEye camera should be the discerning users choice.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium | £649 | SIM Free

Super Slow Motion

On top of the usual imaging features in a mobile camera, Sony are touting super-slow motion in the XZ Premium. This is the first time a smartphone has included the ability to shoot video at 90 fps.

Accessible from the camera apps, the feature provides incredible detail that can be cut into your videos.

Predictive Capture

When you have the camera app open, MotionEye is constantly waiting. When you press the shutter button, the immediate moments before and after are also captured.

This type of feature has been used in the past to create contrast-rich HDR images. Now Sony are going a step further with Predictive Capture.

Best used for action shots and fast subjects, Predictive Capture offers up to 4 still images to choose from. Just in case you weren’t as spot on with your timing as you’d thought!

Sony Imaging Technologies

Exmor RS™: Sharp shots with less noise. The new memory-stacked sensor has 5x faster image scanning for sharper motion images

Sony G Lens: The redesigned G Lens captures detail and texture accurately, for higher optical clarity

BIONZ™ for mobile: An upgraded intelligent image processor. This provides more accurate motion detection and faster image processing

Sony Xperia XZ Premium Key Features

  • Android 7 (Nougat) – Enjoy the most recent version of Google’s OS
  • 64GB internal storage / up to 256GB micro SD
  • 2.45 GHz Snapdragon 835 / 4GB RAM
  • 5.5” screen – world first 4K HDR mobile display with Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • 19 MP main camera – 4K recording, steady shot & MotionEYE slow motion
  • 13 MP selfie camera – stabilised for great images even in low light
  • Bluetooth 5.0 – Faster more reliable connections to peripherals and IoT equipment
  • 3,230 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 & QNOVO adaptive charging
  • IP65/68 water resistance (up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes)
  • USB Type-C / Fingerprint sensor / NFC

Moto C SIM Free UK CloveA large proportion of us now have a smartphone. For the uninitiated though, the choice on offer is simply staggering. If you don’t know your Android from your Snapdragon, then wading through the possibilities is a daunting task.

If only there was a basic, cheap smartphone that ticked all the boxes for a first time user..? The new Moto C is just that phone.

It’s a no-frills handset, designed provide a full smartphone experience, without any unnecessary features or specifications. In stock now with Starry Black or Cherry Red options, the Moto C can be ordered at the following link:

Moto C | £88.99 | SIM Free

First things first, the phone costs only £89. Don’t let price lead you into thinking the Moto C will under-perform though. Cheap smartphones of the past may have been slow, however improvements in technology now mean that even the lower-tier processors can reliably run mobile systems.

Of course there is a world of difference between the Moto C and a superphone that costs more than 5 times this. The differences are in places many may consider superfluous though.

For instance the camera fidelity, screen resolution and raw processing speed are quite basic. They are all still perfectly usable however. Low by today’s standards, these specifications would have been cutting edge just a few years ago.

Designed primarily for communication, the Moto C will give you access to the Internet, social media applications, video streaming services and navigation.

Moto’s marketing says it all: the c range is their attempt to provide just the smartphone essentials.

Moto Smartphone Range

Moto C Key Features

  • Android 7 operating system – access to the latest software and features from Google
  • 5-inch touchscreen display – large enough to view lots of content, small enough to keep the device pocketable
  • 16GB internal storage with support for memory cards up to 32GB
  • 2,300 mAh battery – A well-sized cell that will keep the phone powered through a full day’s use
  • Rear 5MP camera with LED flash
  • 4G / LTE – support for high-speed mobile data connections across Europe
  • Wi-Fi – connect to your home Internet connection wirelessly
  • GPS – access location services and navigate with Google Maps (Internet connection required to download maps)

Macally Universal Cup Holder CloveAt Clove we find one of the most commonly requested phone accessories is a car mount. There are plenty of dash and windscreen mounts available to pick from. The Macally Universal Cup Holder Mount is a little bit different though.

Where the majority of universal holders use a suction pad, or mounting clip system like Brodit, Macally does something a little different.

Ever noticed how cup holders in modern cars all seem to be around the same size? Almost all modern cars now come with cup holders and due to the global market, a standard size is used by many.

The Macally Universal Cup Holder Mount has a shaped base that fits this perfectly. This can also be adjusted to accommodate a few non-standard sizes too.

£19 | Macally Universal Cup Holder Mount

Simply slot the Macally mount into the cup holder and it will be secured in place. You can then adjust the 10cm (4”) neck through a wide range of positions; this accounts for the cup holder position in your vehicle, as well as your preferred driving style.

Your phone sits in a solid universal mounting bracket. Spring-loaded arms (for phones 44-105 mm) provide a stable mounting platform and the soft-touch panel avoids scratches to the handset. The holder also rotates through 360 degrees.

Many smartphone holders attach to the windscreen and can potentially obstruct your field of view. The Macally Universal Cup Holder Mount can be positioned safely out of your line of sight, but still within a usable distance.

A hassle-free installation, the holder does not require screws or a permanent fix.

Macally Universal Cup Holder Mount Video

Reasons to buy Macally Universal Cup Holder Mount

  • Adjustable base fits most vehicle cup holders
  • Adjustable grip fits devices (in cases) 44 – 105 mm wide
  • 10cm (4”) flexible bending neck
  • 360º degree rotating holder
  • Soft-touch grip on arms and back panel
  • Arm grip release button

For those not familiar with Android or smartphones as a whole, Doro have crafted a simplified interface. This helps novice users learn to use the system, by more prominently displaying important features and putting more advanced menus and settings out of sight.

Doro have also put together an excellent ‘smartphone school‘ for looking at smartphones for the first time.

IP67 water-resistant and drop-protected

The Doro smartphone range has been available for a couple of years now and has proven very popular.

A new addition to the range, this Doro 8020X model incorporates something many might be looking for: water-resistance and drop-protection.

The casing of the Doro 8020X has been thickened compared to other Doro smartphones. This helps to dissipate impact forces should it be dropped or knocked from a raised surface. For those who have issue with their grip, this can provide peace of mind should you be concerned about dropping the phone.

Water resistance has also been added. The phone is IP67 rated. We have an explanation on IP ratings available HERE. With an IP67 rating, the Doro 8020X is water resistant to a depth of 1.5 metres for up to 30 minutes.

This adds further protection in case the phone is accidentally dropped in a puddle or has something spilled on it.
