Pre-Order Samsung Galaxy Alpha – £499.99

04_SM-G850F_012_whiteThe Samsung Galaxy Alpha has today been announced.

Based on the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Alpha is designed to offer a more premium feel and form factor thanks to the use of a metal frame, lightweight and thin design and optimum internal hardware.

The Alpha features:

  • Octa core processor (Quad 1.8GHz & Quad 1.3GHz)
  • 32GB internal memory
  • 2GB RAM
  • 12 megapixel rear camera
  • 4.7″ Super AMOLED display
  • 4G
  • 1860mAh battery
  • Less than 7mm thick
  • Just 115g

The Alpha does not have the IP rating like the S5, nor does it have a microSD memory card slot.

Clove’s top 10 smartphones of August 2014

Where has the time gone? It is the middle of summer here in the UK and everyone is using their photos to snap pictures of beaches, planes, far flung destinations and family members enjoying themselves.

August tends to be a quiet month in the mobile industry as people wind down after a busy few months and prepare for the run up to that big day in December….(yes we are already thinking about this).

Although things may be calming down that has not stopped a battle emerging for a space in the top 10 smartphones this month.

We have a new addition in the form of the Nokia Lumia 930 and a few movements amongst other strong contenders.

So after a bit of discussion, we have come up with the list below.

Please do remember that this list is our top 10 based on our preferences, feelings, sales and customer feedback.  Others may have a very different opinion on what makes their top 10.

If you have any questions then contact us on sales@clove.co.uk or by phoning +441202552936 and we will happily help.

 

Motorola Moto E Front_small10. Motorola Moto E

A less featured Moto G but below with £100 price point the Moto E brings great value performance and features to the mass market. Dual core processor, 5 megapixel camera and 3G connectivity.

It might not be all that inspiring in terms of design but it offers what the majority of us will need for communicating on the go and there are interchangeable covers for that added personalisation.

Like the Moto G the E offers all round value but does away with the added power and features that not everyone needs.  As an upgrade from a feature-phone this is a good example of a first smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini arriving in stock tomorrow

SM-G800H_GS5 mini_WhiteSamsung are well known for their ‘mini’ phones.  We have had the S3 Mini and the S4 Mini.

It is only right then, that a couple of months after the Samsung Galaxy S5 came on the market that the S5 Mini should make an appearance.

Tomorrow, Wednesday 6th August, we will be receiving the first stocks of the S5 Mini.

Key features and reasons to consider this phone include:

  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 1.4 GHz quad-core processor
  • 1.5 GB RAM
  • 4.5″ Super AMOLED 720 x 1080 screen
  • 8 MP camera with autofocus, flash, HDR & panorama
  • 2.1 MP front facing camera
  • Fingerprint scanner for locking & authorisation
  • Ultra Power Saving Mode
  • Private / Kids Mode
  • IP 67 rated (water & dust resistant)
  • 2,100 mAh removable battery
  • 131.1 x 64.8 x 9.1mm
  • 120 grams

Not a bad specification list there.  Although this is not a flagship phone, it does have a lot to offer those who want a solid performing device, without the bulk of the larger phones and of course quite such a high price tag.

From tomorrow we will have the Black coloured EU variant of the S5 Mini in stock.

The EU variant is exactly the same specification, but has been brought in from central Europe.  The 2 pin EU mains adapter has been replaced with a 3 pin UK adapter and the warranty is still valid in the UK.

Other colour options and UK spec units will be following very soon.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Multi Charging Cable – Charge 3 micro USB items at once

aSamsung_Multi_Charging_CabYou didn’t know you needed this until now!

You might be asking what is a multi charging cable? We asked the very same thing when we heard about it.

It is a relatively simple principle.  On one end of a cable is a a standard USB connection.  On the other is 3, yes 3 micro USB connectors that split off from the main cable.

Simply connect the USB connector into a USB port on a computer or mains power adapter, then connect 1 or more of the micro USB connections into your micro USB powered equipment such as your smartphone, smartwatch and games controller.

The cable allows multiple charging of products, with the use of only one mains power adapter or USB port.

Many homes and offices are littered with charges for mobile products, but with this cable you can connect to just one socket but charge multiple devices and free up sockets for other equipment.

This is an official Samsung packaged and branded product.  It is available in Black or White colour options for £24.99.

Buy the Black multi charging cable here.
