• Pokemon Go is a super-cool game. The only problem is... it's geo-limited to the US at the moment, although only by download - if you CAN get it installed, it works in other places (such as the UK). So what do you do? Download and install an APK from [insert random site here]? That probably isn't a good idea... because you have no way of knowing if it has been tampered with. A version with malware embedded has already been found. A better option? Install from the Play Store! Here's how.

    In the race to connect everything to the Internet, there are some devices that just make sense. Connected heating (and hot water) control is one such case - we can likely all think of a time when we would like to have switched our heating on or off from outside the home. With the backing of Alphabet, Nest is unquestionably one of the giants in this field - but how does reality match up to the promised convenience? We tried out the latest Nest Learning Thermostat to find out.

    Just recently, I worked to get official TWRP support added for the Honor 7. After doing so, I got somewhat addicted and set about arranging support for other Huawei / Honor devices, particularly those that use encryption. This proved to be something of a challenge, eventually overcome by by working out exactly how the stock recovery decryption worked on the P9. This gave which gave me the information I needed for other devices too. I'm pleased to announce that official TWRP support was added today for 8 more Huawei / Honor devices!

    WileyFox have now announced their new devices - the £90 Spark, £115 Spark + and £130 Spark X. Seriously cheap devices, no question, and we'll be working on full reviews - but the entry level Spark has only 8GB of storage, 3.6GB of which is available on first boot, less than 2.5GB of which is available after updating just the built in apps. Is this acceptable?

    WileyFox, fledgling purveyors of the Swift and Storm CyanogenOS equipped Android Smartphones, are set to launch their 2016 products tomorrow at an event in London. A teaser, which mentions a 'handset range', gives little away about the new devices, however our sources suggest that we should expect more of the same from the company - low cost, high value, SIM free phones.

    Honor have today announced their latest entry level device, the £149 Honor 5C. The 5C, which shares the majority of its specifications with the Huawei P9 Lite, features a 16nm Kirin 650 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, full HD 5.2" IPS screen and f/2.0 cameras on both the front and back (13 Megapixels on the rear, 8 Megapixel front facing). A 3000mAh battery sits inside the metallic, 8.3mm thick body. What's missing for the knock down price? Just a fingerprint reader really, which strangely features on the Chinese 5C but not the European version. In a Honor first for the UK, the 5C includes NFC and therefore Android Pay support.
