You might want a big phone, but you also probably want one that won’t cost an arm and a leg. HTC wants to be there too, and in the latest Desire, is aiming right for that.
One of the key features for 2016 phones is coming to a mobile under $300, as Alcatel unveils a budget device ready to take on the water.
It’s not just Oppo and Huawei that are playing a smart game with smartphones, because Alcatel’s latest announcement is a little more than another iClone.
If you spend a lot of time on the internet when you’re out and about, chances are you’re using your mobile as a hotspot. But how do you get the fastest speeds? You use a faster modem.
There’s a new speed king in town, or it will be in the next few weeks, as Telstra announces that it will support the Samsung Note 5 and S6 Edge+ on Category 9 LTE.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: mid-range is the new major area for smartphone makers to aim for, and Aussie e-tailer Kogan thinks it has a way to victory with a new cut-price 4G phone on the way out.
The next battleground for smartphones might be price, not just features, as one of the makers of the phones for telcos makes a model of its own, and it really looks to compete on value.
The big brands might dominate the top end of the phone selling spectrum, but the battle for mid-range is about to have more choice with Alcatel joining the fight this year in Australia in more than just the low-end part of the market.
You can expect a fair amount of mobile news next week at Mobile World Congress, and we’ll be there reporting on it as it happens, but before all eyes go to Spain for that, HTC is one of many companies showing what’s coming to Australia shortly.
It’s not unusual to see a release here and there ahead of Mobile World Congress, but Samsung has two for Australia barely a week before it unveils the Galaxy S6.
While we’re all waiting for the National Broadband Network to be little more than words from the mouths of politicians, some people want more speed than what ADSL2 can offer, and if that’s you, Vodafone has something that could do the job.
We’re seeing so many 3G budget phones that sometimes you forget we’re living in a 4G world, but Vodafone, it seems, hasn’t forgotten, ready with a budget LTE phone.
We’re still surprised that so many 3G phones are out there, but once you’ve gone 4G, you’ll never want to go back, and if cost was the thing stopping you before, it’s never been cheaper to try it out, as demonstrated by Telstra and HTC.
Self-portrait photos are all the rage, but are two megapixels really enough? That’s the question HTC is trying to find an answer to with the Desire Eye, a smartphone packing dual 13 megapixel cameras, announced this week alongside an interesting little camera.
Sony’s tendency to release a flagship at both the beginning and the end of the year is about to prove itself, as the company shows off its Z3 range, pricing them locally and even hoping to tempt you with the possibility of a gaming console.
Following the Android driven trend of larger mobile phone displays, Apple has released two new models, both of which are larger, and thinner, than previous iPhones.
