The lower end of the smartphone market is booming at the moment, with new budget phones offering decent specs for a fair price. Acer's push in this market is the Liquid Z5, a sub-£100 smartphone with a large 5-inch screen, making its rivals seem small... >>

LG G3 review

By 30 June 2014

The LG G3 follows hot on the heels of the acclaimed LG G2, a device that really pulled LG back into focus at the top-end of Android smartphones. The G2 set the bar high, a tough act to follow, especially having been on the market for less than a year... >>

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III review

By 27 June 2014

By 27 June 2014

During Hamleys' Christmas in July showcase held technically in June (and nowhere near Christmas but such is the nature of these things), Pocket-lint's eye was attracted to a new range of dolls coming to the store the very next day. Makies, a British brand... >>

Citroen C4 Cactus in pictures: The car with air cushions for bumpers

Ford Fiesta ST3 (2014): First drive in peppy new 1.6L turbo
