    Apple iPhone 12 Pro Review
    The iPhone 12 Pro takes the iPhone 12 series staples of 5G connectivity, an OLED display, A14 Bionic chip, Ceramic Shield protection, MagSafe accessories and Dolby Vision recording and adds an extra camera and depth sensing LiDAR scanner. Does this make the already good even better?

    Apple iPhone 12 Review
    The iPhone 12 range is Apple's first to feature 5G connectivity and there's also a move from LCD to OLED displays. Throw in a brand new 5nm A14 Bionic chip, Ceramic Shield protection, MagSafe compatible accessories and the ability to record video in Dolby Vision and the price rise over last year might just be seen as acceptable.

    Apple iPhone SE Review
    This phone is the very definition of déjà vu. At a glance it’s nearly identical to the iPhone 8, released in September 2017. But inside, though much of the hardware is the same, it’s powered by the latest iPhone chip, the A13 Bionic, also found in the current flagship phones. Despite the price rise, it is arguably the most affordable, and certainly best-value, iPhone yet.

    Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Review
    From the outside, the Galaxy Z Flip is a small folding phone, and it looks great. It’ll fit into a small pocket, and then fold out impressively to be as big as most other smartphones. So, is Samsung's second recent attempt at a folding phone worth your while?
