It’s that time of week again where we give you the rundown of everything that’s been happening in the world of mobile technology. Over the past seven days we’ve seen a fair old bit of news, so to help you stay on top of it all, here’s our Mobile News In Brief.
Sit back, enjoy and most of all, have a good weekend.
We put the Nokia Lumia 1020’s mammoth 41 megapixel lens and Xenon flash to the test in our in-depth camera guide. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a David Bailey or just want to take some good snaps, have a look at our feature and learn everything you need to know to become a master photographer.
If you don’t know your Froyo from your Jelly Bean, fear not. Our quick ‘How To’ guide will help you untangle the jargon and get your Android smartphone fully updated. Packed with tips and tricks, we won’t leave you struggling to get to grips.
The week certainly can’t be all work and no play, so we kindly put together some weird and wonderful web offerings in our Take Five feature. Question: What do you get when you put Stephen Merchant, Jimmy Fallon and Joseph Gordon-Levitt together? A lip-synch off, of course!
Although the next generation Note 3 only landed a few short weeks ago, Samsung is already rumoured to be releasing a special edition of the phablet. It’s thought the new version could feature a flexible display and hit the market as soon as next month.
Mobile phones could be banned from next year’s Standard Charted Hong Kong Marathon after mass injuries were suffered. Participants in the race stopped to take a selfie souvenir and in short, caused a pile-up.
In light of the recent Emmy awards, we thought it only appropriate to present you with our favourite TV themes in our Phones 4u Playlist. Much-loved shows of past and present cropped up but we can only apologise for the accidental omission of Dawson’s Creek…
