Sony Xperia M2 Unboxing

Sony Xperia M2 (Clove)The Xperia M2 is Sony’s most recent mid-range device and it offers quite a lot of punch for the price.

At just £210 you’d be forgiven for thinking it might be a little underpowered, however Sony have managed to push the specification as far as possible at this price point.

Of course you don’t get the glass & metals of their flagship Z range, yet the cost-effective plastic construction keeps the weight down.

This also makes the slick qHD 4.8 inch screen all the more impressive, no other big name manufacturer offers this much real estate at the 200 pound mark.

As is the way forward with devices now there is also complete support for 4G LTE & NFC as with all Sony handsets. Check out our unboxing below to see it in action

Defender from ‘The Toughphone’ unboxing

Subtle is not what the Defender phone from The Toughphone is.

It has nothing to do with bold stand out colours, in fact the Defender phone does not really stand out at all in a sea of similar rugged phones, unless you see it with its optional antenna attached.

Designed for some of the most hostile and harsh environments, the Defender is a toughened Android handset with an IP68 rating and dedicated SOS button.

A built in walkie-talkie with push-to-talk button further adds to the appeal of this device for its intended market.


It will unlikely be the phone many of you desire to own, however if you work in construction, oil, security or similar fields, such a handset could offer you many benefits. Your mobile and walkie-talkie communications are rolled into one device capable of also taking a decent submersion in water and heavy impacts.

The handset also has 2 SIM card slots, NFC and other standard smartphone features so in all is well rounded.

In the following video we unbox the handset and show you what is included as well as what you can expect.

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 Unboxing

The Samsung Galaxy Ace series of smartphones are amongst some of the most popular handsets out there as they offer a great combination of performance and style to match a more competitive budget.

The Ace 3 is as the name implies the third generation of the Ace family.

Whilst the Ace 3 sits in the shadows of the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Note 3, the Ace still offers a lot of what you will require of a smartphone, but it doesn’t quite have the same processing power and high resolution screens.  Not all require this though and at just over £200, the Ace 3 offers quite a bit for the money.

What features do you get?

  • Android 4.2 Jelly bean
  • 5MP 2592 x 1944p camera
  • 4″ 480 x 800p display (233ppi)
  • 8GB internal storage
  • 1GB RAM
  • NFC and Bluetooth
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n

We have recently received the Ace 3 into stock and have brought you one of our unboxings so that you can see the phone in the hand and get an idea what it looks like in real life rather than the lovely marketing images.

LG G2 unboxing

It has to be seen to understand how great it is.

With so many smartphones on the market offering similar features, standing out from the crowd can be difficult, but the G2 does that with having no physical buttons on the sides of the device.  You will find 3 buttons on the back of the phone that control the power, volume and allow quick access to apps.

Check out our unboxing and hands on of the phone in the following video
