Oppo introduces the world’s thinnest smartphone (but with no headphone jack)

How thin a phone do you need? If you pass off everything today as being too thick, something else is coming, but you’ll have to be prepared to make a sacrifice or two.

Aldi’s $279 Bauhn Sphere smartphone reviewed

Remember when you had to go to a phone store to buy a phone? No more, with phones available everywhere, and Aldi is getting on that with the Sphere, a budget phone for a budget price. Worth it, or is there better value at some other place?

Aldi takes on Motorola with a sub-$300 dual-SIM smartphone

High-speed 4G isn’t everywhere yet, and there are people that just don’t need it, so if you don’t want to spend more than $300 on a phone, where do you turn? Apparently Aldi is one such place.

Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus reviewed

Apple has steered clear of tablet-sized phones for a while now, leaving it to Samsung and other manufacturers, but now Apple is here with a phablet of its own. Is the iPhone 6 Plus the best big phone of the lot?

HTC, Telstra team up for sub-$200 4G in BlueTick certified Desire 510

We’re still surprised that so many 3G phones are out there, but once you’ve gone 4G, you’ll never want to go back, and if cost was the thing stopping you before, it’s never been cheaper to try it out, as demonstrated by Telstra and HTC.

Aussie design house firms up Apple’s iPhone, stops #bendgate with a case

Review: Moto G (2014, G2)

Big phones are in, and to go with that trend, Motorola is upgrading one of its entry-level handsets, increasing the screen size of its G series phone to make it a sub-$300 5 inch handset, but is the G2 better or just a bigger version of the same?
