Huawei’s Honor 5X is headed to the US before the end of January, but the European launch was held last night, with the phone now being available from £169.99. This is a big phone with a decent specification for not a lot of money. The Honor 5X comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, a 5 MP selfie snapper, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 chipset (with a 1.5 GHz octa-core CPU), 2 or 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a 3,000 mAh battery.

Kidigi Nexus 6P Desktop Charging Dock Review

This is a mini review for the Kidigi Nexus 6P Desktop Charging Dock that was kindly supplied by mobilefun.co.uk. As the title suggest this is a dock for your Nexus 6P, it comes without a power supply so you will have to plug it into your PC USB or into a USB plug. The mount is reasonably well made, and has a weighty feel to it, so you don’t feel like your phone will fall over when mounted. Probably the best feature about it is the adjustable USB-C connector as well as having quite a long USB socket itself....

Sky Q launches February 9th starting at £42 per month

With the massive growth of online streaming, tablets, and the launch of 4K, Sky has been starting to look a little dated. With the launch Sky Q is the biggest innovation from Sky in years and clearly hopes bring Sky into the modern era. I have to admit the whole concept sounds very impressive, the master box, the Sky Q Silver has 12 channel tuners and 2TB which will store 350 hours of HDTV and is 4k compatible. There is a lower specced Sky Q box which will do normal HDTV and has 1TB of storage. The system is...

Extreme One Eighties Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review

EXTREME ONE-EIGHTIES are the new active noise cancelling headphones from the “global pioneer of action sports content since 1995” – EXTREME. Priced at £149.99 they are right in the middle in terms of pricing in comparison to other noise cancelling headphones. The gold standard is the Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones, which are priced at an eye watering £269.95, however in my experience nothing has come close to these in terms of noise cancelling performance. On the other end of the scale are the 7dayshop AERO 7 or the Aero Freedom, priced around £45. The performance of these is excellent,...
