  • I suspect most of us own a battery bank. It feels like device battery life is generally getting better, particularly in standby, but also we're using them more and with the odd exception (*cough* Lenovo P2 *cough*) batteries aren't really getting bigger. Having a backup option in your bag always feels sensible. So how do you choose which battery bank to buy? Getting the right one for you can be surprisingly complicated given the options available. So we'll help you choose!


    EMUI, aka Emotion UI - the custom UI layer for Android that features on Honor and Huawei devices - has always taken a lot of criticism. Of course, this is true for all manufacturer software versions that aren't 'stock Android', but EMUI has previously been particularly 'heavy', which means it taken more flak. One key criticism was the battery optimisations that used to lead to missing notifications. Thankfully, this isn't the case nowadays - we'll take you through what EMUI does include on the battery front and how to manage it.


    It might feel like Android tablets are dead (on the whole, it's hard to argue, let's be honest), but there are still some pretty compelling devices out there. One of my personal favourite tablets is the Samsung Tab S2 8.0, which I have in Qualcomm / LTE flavour. It's great, but unlike the Tab S3 (which unfortunately is only available in the larger size) it doesn't have any specific stylus support. So, as a big fan of previous Adonit stylii, I jumped at the chance to try the new 'Droid' model.


    Android has a feature known as 'FRP', or 'Factory Reset Protection'. This is designed to prevent someone stealing your phone, performing a factory reset, then selling it on. If you don't do things in the right way however, this can also trip you up when selling your device. Follow our guidance to avoid this happening to you!


    Thanks to Huawei Mobile UK, we're giving away a Huawei P Smart in the rarer Gold and White colour, featuring 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, a 5.65" Fullview display, 13MP+2MP cameras and super-quick fingerprint unlock. To go with your phone you'll also win a Huawei Band 2 Pro (that's the higher spec one with GPS built in). Entering is easy, with a required Twitter re-tweet and additional options for more entries!


    The Huawei / Honor march towards domination rolls on with the introduction of a raft of mid-range devices featuring the previously flagship 18:9 screen size. For the UK at least however, exactly which device you should buy isn't clear at all. With the Honor 7X, the Honor 9 Lite and the Huawei P Smart all close in price, which one is the one to have? Our guide should help you choose!


    The Amazfit Bip is not a Smartwatch. The Amazfit Bip is a fitness tracker with some Smartwatchy traits and a whole host of possibilities. The Amazfit Bip is basic in many ways and lacks the features on many of its peers. The Amazfit Bip is cheap, fun and I love it. Intrigued? Read on!
