How time flies

Adding some notes to Evernote on my iPhone 6 Plus a moment ago, I paused to think about what a great phone it is and how over the moon I was when it arrived last year. And yet... In just a few hours, Apple will have announced a replacement and the iPhone 6 will feel ...

iPhone 6 Plus: First Impressions

After some initial disappointment, my iPhone 6 Plus finally arrived on Monday. Unboxed (carefully) , sim-card inserted, I was up and running in minutes. I've been using it intensively all week, and while this isn't a full and detailed review of the phone, I can safely share the following first impressions: It's big It's big. ...

Take Note

I’ve been living with my new Samsung Note 3 for a couple of months now and can honestly say I’m still glad I made the switch. Every time I pick up @FrankDJS s iPhone 5s (which is, actually, my old one) I’m amazed I lasted as long as I did with such a small screen. Yes, the Note 3 is ...

While there, I ...

While this is not good news for Samsung (though I’m sure they can survive without me), it’s good news for me. Recently, I’ve been getting ...

Considering a bigger iPhone

It’s mid-January, so obviously rumours of the next iPhone model have started. Actually, I read iPhone 6 rumours the day after the iPhone 5s was announced. I suspect some people spend their entire technology writing careers creating and propagating crazy Apple rumours. Implausible rumours aside, the trend for bigger mobile phone screens continues, while Apple has retained ...

Tempted by the dark side…

I spent a worryingly long amount of time indoors last Saturday, fondling an Android phone handset. Despite the lovely weather outside, I was in a Vodafone store in Canary Wharf, giving serious thought to upgrading to a Samsung Galaxy 4 S. I know. I was shocked too. Here's the thing: It's gorgeous. A fantastic - ...
