Review: Delikatessen iPhone Cover from Tucano

I have tried out a fair few iPhone cases over the last couple of years and I have to say I think this new one I’ve been sent to review is one of my favourites. It is the Delikatessen from Tucano, and it has something I have never seen in gadget cases before – texture.

Review: Nokia Lumia 1320

Following my review of the Nokia Lumia 925 I was given an opportunity to try out another one of Nokia’s smartphone offerings – the Lumia 1320. I was loaned a bright yellow one to try out for a couple of weeks. As all my reviews here on Splodz Blogz are based on my own personal

Review: iPhone 5 Telescope Camera Lens

I love the convenience of my iPhone for taking photos. I love how I can hold it in my hand and grab a snap at any given moment. The quality isn’t bad either – fairly decent clarity and file size meaning I’ve been able to take part in a couple of photography exhibitions showing pictures

Review: Nokia Lumia 925

For the last three weeks I have swapped my beloved iPhone for a very shiny Nokia Lumia 925, which I’ve had on loan from Nokia to try out. It’s been an interesting test, starting with incredible frustration over not being able to find anything or type simple words using the keyboard, to actually feeling a

Review: Wrappz Personalised iPhone 5 Case

Personalised bits and bobs make great present ideas; Wrappz specialise in personalised skins and cases for phones, tablets, e-readers and other similar things – and the simple online user interface means it is an absolute doddle to create a unique product for yourself or someone else. Wrappz got in touch to see if I’d like

Review: Bloom FM iPhone App

Waaaaay back before the summer I was given an opportunity to test out the Bloom FM app for iPhone. Six months on, my subscription has run out, and it’s time for me to tell you all what I thought. Bloom is a free radio-style music streaming app for iPhone and Android that allows you to

InstaChimps Exhibition 2 – My Shots

Thank you so much to everyone who was able to get over to Lincoln Central Library sometime over the last two weeks to view my six black and white smartphone photographs, along with the 90 others on display. We have now taken the pictures out of the Library, and so for those of you who

InstaChimps Smartphone Photography Exhibition #2

The second annual InstaChimps photography exhibition opens on Monday, and I will once again be showing a handful of pictures I’ve taken on my iPhone.  InstaChimps is a group of mobile photographers based in Lincolnshire. After the success of our inaugural exhibition last year, the group has doubled in size and has expanded beyond its

Review: Artwizz SeeJacket Flap Plus Leather Case

Do you like my new iPhone case? It’s rather professional looking don’t you think? Very clean lines, and a lovely creamy grey colour. It’s the Seejacket Flap Plus Leather Case by Artwizz (in dark grey) that I recently received from MyTrendyPhone.co.uk to review. The case is a solid flip-style grey leather with soft brushed interior. The phone

Review: Beachbuoy Waterproof Phone Pouch

Following the experiences of a number of our motorbike trips over the years, being sent a completely waterproof pouch for my phone to review was incredibly useful – thanks Mobile Fun! And, as expected but not wanted, when we woke up on Tuesday last week and it was teeming it down I reached for my

Phone Photography Pointers

Taking photos on our phones is quick, simple and can be instantly shared with others. The fact that cameras on mobile phones are now of a pretty decent standard we have more opportunity to capture moments as they happen without needing to carry around a “proper” camera – and we can keep and even print

Review: BassBoomz Portable Bluetooth Speaker

I’ve seen these little Bluetooth speakers around for a while now. They come in all sorts of designs, all claiming to give you a great sound. The idea is that the speakers in your phone or MP3 player are pretty rubbish – they are, the speaker is definitely not an iPhone’s strong point – so

Review: iPhone 5 Dock from Mobile Fun

Docks are designed to allow you to sync and charge your phone while it is sat upright on your desk or bedside table. This one (showing off my very dusty iPhone!) is from Mobile Fun. The dock is good for charging and syncing your phone with your computer, as well as plugging into the mains

Review: Mobile Fun Lightning to USB Cable

One of the problems with upgrading to the iPhone 5 or the new iPad is that because Apple changed to their new lightning connection, using old accessories requires new cables or adapters (or new accessories entirely). Whether you believe lightning is genuinely better (faster, smaller, etc) or that it’s just an exercise to make our old accessories defunct, the

Review: Power Support Crystal Film Set

I’ve had a number of generations of the iPhone over the past few years (I know, I’m very lucky), and each time I buy a new one my main concern is keeping it in perfect condition so that I can enjoy the screen and that retina display for as long as possible. I know many
