Huawei P30 leak brings good news… Jack’s back in town

Huawei P30

TWITTER USER STEVE H. MCFLY (@OnLeaks) has teamed up with 91mobiles to bring the world a Huawei P30 leak comprising 3D renders and a 360 degree video showcasing the device. This is our first look at a new Huawei smartphone since the Chinese tech giant unveiled the Mate 20 Pro.

The renders showcase the phone’s three camera setup, which, similar to the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, will be aligned vertically. This is a step away from the square block of lenses on the Mate 20 Pro. However, Huawei seem to have decided that the textured finish on the back of the Mate 20 Pro was a good move, and have incorporated it into the P30. The phone will also apparently come with a gradient of colours, similar to the P20 Pro upon release.

Huawei P20 review – the P20 Pro’s baby brother is all grown up

IF YOU’RE NOT A CAMERA BUFF, then you probably don’t want to be forking £800 for the triple-lensed Huawei P20 Pro. Thankfully, the standard P20 model, which doesn’t let MI6 spy on you in 40MP resolution, is ‘just’ £600.

For that price, you’ll be getting an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor running at a maximum of 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Unfortunately, the storage is not expandable by way of microUSB. The battery stands at a sizeable 3400mAh.

THOUGH YOU DON’T SEE many people walking with an Asus phone, you may be surprised by the quality of the mid-range Asus ZenFone 5 flagship.

Coming in at just £349.99 on the Asus website (though you can find it much cheaper elsewhere), the ZenFone 5 features an octa-core Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB or 6GB RAM, 64GB storage and a whopping 3300mAh battery. The storage is expandable via a microSD card up to 512GB which fits into the SIM 2 slot in the dual-SIM tray.

Google Pixel review – a new player or just a speck of colour?

Google Pixel review - a new player or just a speck of colour? 5

So, Google recently released their newest innovation – the Pixel. The Pixel is the first smartphone designed by Google in-house, unlike the Nexus range which has more designing companies than I have had smartphones in my lifetime.

I will freely admit that I was uncertain whether or not I wanted to buy the Pixel when it came around to getting a new phone. Having always been an Apple user, you could say that the idea of having to use an Android phone wasn’t particularly enticing.
