2.0 out of 5 stars Southend goods at West End prices, 4 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Currently there aren't many 'non flip' cases available for the Nokia 930 and as I like to invest in a nice case this seemed the only option. A named brand with it's own website and at £10 it must be reasonably good right? Well yes and no and the no is unfortunately more prominent. The case is a 'fusion' of rubber and plastic, the ports are well cut out and it feels good in the hand but what annoys me is not only (as another reviewer mentioned) is the finnish really poor, rough edges and glue marks between rubber and plastic but also the clear plastic back is all scratched up out of the box - it looks just awful. This case will protect the phone and that is exactly what it's for and for that reason I will be keeping it (as well as there being no spigen, casemate or otterbox equivalent available). But be warned it is cheap and at £10 a rip off. Sonivo = budget not quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Medium is the new mini, 16 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As phones get more technically advanced almost by the day it seems only natural for the mid range bracket to follow suit. Gone are the days when only the flagship's offered delivered a top class experience and the G2 mini is a prime example of this. I say mini but with a screen size of 4.7 ' (comparable to the HTC one) it's not small but then similar to it's big brother LG have managed to have hardly an bezel at the sides meaning it still feels comfortable in the hand. Everything you would expect is available on the G2 mini, the only difference to the G2 is obviously reduced processing power and a lower (non hd) screen resolution, the first is negligable in that if you wanted more power you wouldn't be looking at this device and secondly the screen is fine if you don't have something with a higher ppi next to it to show it up. Of course the camera is in a different league as well but the 8mp shooter is more than sufficient for onscreen and facebook viewing. The build id solid enough, it has a removeable battery (though you will get 1 1/2 - 2 days out of it no proble) sd card slot, and the bonus is it's 4g compatable unlike similar models. In some ways it's a shame the screen isn't top notch like the xperia z1 compact but then that retails for nearly £200 more. If you've come from cutting you may be disappointed but for £160 it's as good as it gets...

Another nice phone form nokia however i feel they have just tried to commercialize the already popular) 920. Yes its slimmer and lighter but it dosen't feel anywhere near as solid, the buttons are spongier the usb port looks unfinished and there is a tiny gap around the camera (that now sticks out - 920's was flush) that will gather dust. In addition the phone only has 16gb of storage (as opposed to 32 on 920) a smaller speaker and no wireless charging without a 'special' case which actually makes it thicker than the 920? Some will love the design of this phone and the addition of a metal rim but apart from the look nothing has really changed (6th lens element makes minimal difference if any) so if you want this phone for its specs go for the 920.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if you like taking pictures, 19 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great quality phone - the camera is as good (possibly better) than you think, pictures/videos look fantastic even when viewd on tv screen. Sound quality also great, the stereo recording means you can film a live concert without losing clarity (check the videos on youtube). Build quality as you would expect from nokia, though i would always recommend a case i think this could survice a few drops without one. Unfortunatley dispite closing the gap with windows 8 it's still miles away from android and just not as much 'fun' as a multimedia device. if you just want a phone to be a phone and you want one of the best pocketable cameras on the market (including entry level compacts) this could be the phone for you.

Excellent case, as good as otterbox for a quarter of the price. Adds bulk but if you want a case like this you should expect that. the added bonus with the 1020 version is it streamlines the phone so it's easier to hold (without the hump). Also the case is raised slightly above the camera for added protection

Ok but it's a budget case - there are cases on amazon for £3 that are as good. Also there is a loose bit of plastic at the front of the speaker. Poor design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Xperiance, 4 Feb 2014
I have been a fan of sony mobile phones for some time, and the Z1 is the best yet. For anyone who owned a Z this is the phone that should of been, a more premium build, far superior camera, better screen (although who looks at a phone screen anything other than straight on?) For the pedantic (like myself) the annoying 'flap' issue is eradicated in that the headphone jack is now flapless (but still waterproof) so the only one that'll need opening daily is the micro usb to charge the phone. Again this can be avoided buy purchasing a charging dock for about £20. (The Krussell clip on hard card case is compatible with the dock).
The camera is of course the stand out feature and is very good, not ground breaking in a nokia 808 or 1020 sense but the best available on android (which in return is light years ahead of the windows operating system). The default setting is superior auto which doesn't use the full 20mp but rather 8mp that apparently utilizes the 20mp's (again like nokia 1020) to make a better shot in all conditions. I would say for the most part superior auto will do the job.
The walkman app is one of the best on a smartphone and the though there is too much bloatware (most manfacturers are guilty of this) you can disable them if you wish. Spec wise the Z1 is just about the fastest out there at the moment, falling a tad short of the note 3 but it does have better camera and the build quality is second to none. Some may argue the HTC one or iphone 5 are the best built phones but it's down to opinion, the Z1 is on a par but glass instead if aluminum. The Z1 is of course waterproof which is a nice touch, I'm still too scared to put mine under water but it's nice to know your safe when talking in pouring rain.
Another huge selling point of the Z1 is it's compatibility with micro sd cards, giving you the option to increase your phone memory up to 80gb! Against the similarly priced HTC one with a non-expandable 32gb

Overall it's a fine phone that looks and feels premium, it is quite large in the hand and there are other 5' screen phones that are smaller but if you are happy with a sizeable but pocketable phone for everyday use this could be the (z) one for you.
