We saw 3 phones officially launched at MWC that are powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system on chip. This chip is the latest high-end SoC from Qualcomm and will be the chip powering most of this year’s flagships. With the Snapdragon handling the vast majority of the functions, it is interesting to see what aspects of the chip manufacturers focus on, which they omit, and how the phones are priced. During my Snapdragon roundtable, it was highlighted how the current 3 announcements all appear to focus on a specific feature to promote their phone, and how it...

Watch the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015 Live Stream Here with Galaxy S6 Launch

The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event is just over 3 hours away with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and possibly the Galaxy S6 Edge due. Based on leaks it appears Samsung are deviating from the Galaxy styles of previous devices with an all metal, glass back design which will like mean no removable battery, microSD slot or water proofing.  This is already causing quite a bit of a stir among Samsung fans on Reddit, but I guess a sleeker design will have more mass appeal. Either way we will find out what all the fuss is about at...

Couple of Budget Phones for you

Ok their not smartphones by any means but Samsung and Nokia have two new budget phones for the pay as you go market, the cheapskates and the technophobes. Smartphones they are not but they certainly do the job of ringing people and texting with the added bonus of some basic features. Firstly we have the Samsung Corby II. 3.14” Touchscreen EDGE connectivity microSD up to 16GB Bluetooth 3.0 WiFi Samsung TouchWiz UI Social Networking Functions As you can see it is pretty basic but obviously the price will reflect it’s lack of “smartness”. Available first in Germany of all places first we should see it appear on our shores soon afterwards although we don’t have a retail price for it just yet. Secondly there’s the Nokia X1-00. Nokia are really good at making the ultra-budget phones and have made some in the past cheaper than anyone else but still with that Nokia build quality you expect from the Finnish mobile makers. This is even more basic than the previous phone however. It doesn’t even have a touchscreen It does have its own stand out features though although i think the market they’re aiming for are the annoying kind that make public transport unbearable Colour screen Series 30 software microSD support to 16GB Speaker on the reverse (increased frequency range so the sound quality is better than your average phone...
