Nokia Lumia 930 Review: The Dark Horse

Published by on Nov 24th, 2014, 5 Comments

Nokia-004In the shadow of the Apple vs. Android smartphone war lurks the dark horse of the market. The Nokia Lumia range has steadily gained market share over the past couple of years and today they produce some spectacular smartphones. We were given the opportunity to review the Nokia Lumia 930 and I really wanted to see why my dad and brother (who both own Nokia’s) rant and rave about the user interface and design. The other itch I wanted to scratch was just how good the Carl Zeiss lens performs with the 20MP snapper. The media seems preoccupied with what Apple and Google are doing on a daily basis, which suits Microsoft just fine as they can keep their new products and reveals under wraps to surprise the market when they unveil them. So does the dark horse deserve to run with the thoroughbreds? Read our Nokia Lumia 930 review and find out… (more…)

M9concept2Over the past couple of years HTC has arguably made the best looking smartphones around. The curved aluminum design of the HTC One M8 is truly a thing of beauty and it seems as though the company will be hard pressed to top such a great design. Well if they are at a loss as to the M9′s design maybe they should hire some of the concept designers out there. These designers proves that even though you have an award winning design, there is always some room to grow. (more…)

SCiOWhilst your smartphone may be able to tell you how far you are from home, or how much traffic is on your route or even how much steps you took today. Even though all these technologies exist, your smartphone does have its limitations. For example, can it tell you how many calories does your lunch contain? Can it tell you the chemical makeup of the vitamins you are about to take? No? Well this new smart little device can do all that and more with a click of a button… (more…)

LGG3The hype train that is the LG G3 has finally hit our South African shores! Last night saw LG unveil their latest flagship device to the South African media at The Venue in Melrose Arch Johannesburg. Since the launch of the LG G2 last year the LG SA marketing team has certainly stepped up their game.

The Alcatel One Touch 2000 is an entry level phone in any way you look at is. It is priced at a measly R459 and is meant for people who want a device that does the basics, and does it well. It is also targeting elderly people or people who are somewhat visually disabled or is hard of hearing with its great big buttons and voice-on-touch. Let’s see how it shapes up.

Compared to other feature phone targeting the same demographic, it is truly a great deal when you look at the price, as is compares favourably with similar competitors.

There is also an SOS button on the back, which can be customised to call and/or text a variety of contacts.  It also comes with a handy charging dock so no one needs to struggle with tiny ports or cables. (more…)

Sony is reportedly releasing a couple of mid-range phones at Mobile World Congress this month, along with a couple of low-end ones. But it seems that the Xperia G will be headlining that line-up of non-flagship devices.

A photo claiming to show portions of the Xperia G was tweeted out along with some specs: LTE, 8GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera and a gig of RAM, plus a 4.8-inch screen. Those internals, if accurate would position the G as a mid-range handset with a slightly smaller size and similar design as the Xperia Z1S (which was only available in the US). (more…)
