LG V40 ThinQ uses Heat pipe to minimise the IP68 rated handset from overheating.

LG V40 ThinQ uses Heat pipe to minimise the IP68 rated handset from overheating.

The LG V40 Thinq is taking the mobile market by storm, thanks to the innovate 5 cameras set up, the 6.4″ QHD+ OLED Display (3120 x 1440, including notch) with fullVision Display and a snappy Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 845 with up to 2.8 GHz x 4 + 1.7 GHz x 4 Octa-Core power. But that’s not where the good news ends. All of this high-end technology is protected by a highly durable casing.

Designed to be Shock Resistant (IP68 Dust and Water Resistant) with MIL-STD-810G Testing, the LG V40 ThinQ will survive almost everything you throw at it.

‘Ingress Protection’ (IP) ratings are used to define levels of a mobile phone’s resistance to dust, dirt and moisture. The good news for the LG V40 ThinQ is that the IP68 is the highest rating you can get when it comes to protecting your phone from these foreign objects. The 6 part of the rating suggests the LG V40 ThinQ is completely dust tight and the 8 shows that the device is protected against the effects of submersion in water (well, for 30 minutes), at a depth of up to 1.5 metres.

Further protection comes from the integrated heat pipe. Made from copper, heat pipes are commonly used in laptops and personal computers to prevent the processors from overheating, but with issues of overheating hitting the headlines these past years, there’s a common reason to include them in our handheld technology. LG’s innovative Heat Pipe will absorb and redirect heat away from the processor to help minimise the risk of overheating.

Purchase the LG V40 ThinQ today, sim free and unlocked, available with UK and International delivery.

Everything we know about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855

Everything we know about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855

Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 was featured at CES 2019 in Las Vegas yesterday, over a month after it was released in Maui. Qualcomm’s new 855 chipset isn’t just the usual bump in specs. Instead, it will be the chip to appear in the first round of 5G handsets and delivering the new decade for 5G, Wi-Fi, AI, and XR.

We can expect to see the chip in most major flagship phones in 2019, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 in some countries including the US. (Check out more Samsung CES 2019 news here.)


Here’s what we currently know about the Snapdragon 855:

  • The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 is a 7nm octa-core processor.
  • The Arm DynamIQ CPU cluster design has been altered slighlty, with four small Cortex-A55 cores paired up with three big cores, based on Arm’s Cortex-A76 design, and a larger prime Cortex-A76 core for an even higher peak performance.
  • It will harness multi-gigabit 4G connectivity, while unleashing transformative 5G experiences to provide some of the most advanced, imaginative technologies in the mobile industry.
  • The chip will be powered by new architecture improvements and leading 7nm process technology, a giant leap in CPU smartphone performance, and a Hexagon processor that’s purpose built for AI.
  • We will also see a more powerful Adreno 640 GPU, offering a 20 percent performance boost over the previous generation.
  • It will provide the performance and power efficiency for the next echelon of 5G, AI and XR
  • Size-wise the handset has reduced from 10nm to 7n suggesting improvements in efficiency to give us incredible battery life.
  • It will provide next generation on-device AI capabilities to make your voice, camera, gaming and power management smarter, faster and more intuitive than ever before.

Samsung promise 5G Handsets in the first half of 2019

Samsung promise 5G Handsets in the first half of 2019

Samsung teased us with hints of the Galaxy S10 prior to their CES Press Conference. While we did not get to see the handset per se, we did hear a lot about the tech under the hood of the S10, including 5G technology and 7nm chipsets.


Samsung marked their 50 year anniversary with two big promises; 2019 will be the year we’ll see the “First 5G Smartphone to be Released”, and they are “the first company to receive FCC approval on… commercial 5G equipment.”

Samsung also committed to putting the power of 5G in consumers’ hands in the first half of 2019. As the S range is normally released in Spring, our bets are on the S10, or the rumoured 4 members of the S10 family (including an ‘ultra-premium’ Plus-branded variant and a cut-price ‘budget’ version), being the first in line for 5G connectivity.

Also at CES 2019 is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, the chipset that’s expected to power the Galaxy S10.

Why You Should Use a Dual Sim Handset

Why You Should Use a Dual Sim Handset


Life in the 21st century is a fast-paced, plugged in 24/7 kind of existence, so we’re always looking for ways to make life easier, cheaper and more convenient.

One way to achieve a streamlined daily routine is by upgrading your handset to a dual sim variety. Perfect for work-centric individuals, travellers and those who need to be contactable.

Our top choice for a dual sim handset? The Dual Sim Samsung Galaxy S9, now available for under £500.

dual sim

Here are our top four reasons to swap to a dual sim device:

1 Access two numbers at once without the extra handset.  Streamline your bag, as you’ll have no need for carrying two phones and no need to keep switching SIM cards with the dual sim Samsung Galaxy S9.

2 Separate work and play. If you’re one of the crowds that need to have a dedicated line for work but don’t want to mix it with your home life it’s time to check out a dual sim handset. Dual SIM phones will let you know which line a call or text is coming through allowing you to differentiate if it’s a business or personal call before answering the phone.

3 Enjoy better coverage. Many of us spend our time in locations that have patchy coverage, which makes for frustrating use. Dual sim handsets allow you to access two different networks to increase your likelihood of coverage. You’ll never miss a call again.

4 Keep an international sim active for all your travel needs. With a dual sim handset, you’ll be able to use your phone internationally without having to switch out your regular SIM card. This will not only be more convenient but allows you to access cheaper rates overseas, without the expensive roaming charges. Leave behind the huge international roaming bills for good.
