  • 'That thing'

    22 April 2014, 9:50 pm by: Shaun McGill

    I keep thinking about my iPhone and the advantages of potentially having a larger screen, and then I think about 'that thing' that is always there within my vicinity and which is so unobtrusive.The Lumia 1020 is a great phone with a decent large screen and the…

  • How does the S5 compare with the 5s? Not very well...

    22 April 2014, 9:30 pm by: Shaun McGill

    In other words, how does the Galaxy S5 compare to the iPhone 5S, Apple’s six-month-old flagship device and the champion to beat?The answer: Not very well. I’ve been using the new Samsung for about three weeks, and while I do think it is the best Android…
  • Better?

    22 April 2014, 9:00 pm by: Shaun McGill

    The most striking thing about the video above is that Tim Cook is narrating it. Apart from that, it feels like a stop-gap promotional video by Apple while there is little else happening.I know that this can be a quiet time, but it is just me who feels that the…
  • The case for and against the iPhone

    21 April 2014, 10:00 pm by: Shaun McGill

    As you know I have been using the Lumia 1020 for the past few days and have been extremely surprised by many aspects of it. In the next article I will present the case for said Lumia, but at this time I would like to point out certain features of the iPhone 5s…
  • The Chromecast

    21 April 2014, 9:30 pm by: Shaun McGill

    My daughter loves our iPad mini. She uses it for watching Netflix, homework and for making funny hairstyles in Hair Salon 2. She isn't allowed to use it too much, but when she is allowed to watch Netflix I would rather she did so on a big screen.She has a…
  • iPhone owners love the S5, or maybe they don't?

    21 April 2014, 3:09 pm by: Shaun McGill

    According to a report in The Telegraph, more than a third (38% to be precise) of the users who upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S5 switched from an Apple iPhone. The data has been gathered from the mobile trade-in website CompareMyMobile.The majority Apple users…
  • Vague, too general and not relevant

    20 April 2014, 4:01 pm by: Shaun McGill

    I have been thinking about what to do with Lost In Mobile for some time now and, as some of you will know, I have attempted to stop running the site a few times over the years.I am not going to stop writing about phones, but do realise that Lost In Mobile is…
  • Vinyl vs CD

    20 April 2014, 5:27 am by: Shaun McGill

    On a theoretical level, there's just no reason it should be the case that vinyl sounds better. There are built-in problems with using vinyl as a data encoding mechanisms that have no CD equivalent. Vinyl is physically limited by the fact that records have to…
  • When was the last time you used a paper map?

    20 April 2014, 4:30 am by: Shaun McGill

    A satnav does the navigational graft for you. Maps coax their readers into doing the lion's share of the work. They require an act of code-breaking to distinguish the symbols for railway embankments from gravel pits; club houses from cattle-grids; coppice from…
  • 8 things to hate about the Galaxy S5

    19 April 2014, 10:00 pm by: Shaun McGill

    I just want to say I understand well that there is no such thing as the “perfect” smartphone. Like my mother used to tell me, you’ll never find the perfect woman, only the perfect woman for you. Because, Android is a wonderful mess right now,…

    19 April 2014, 12:22 pm by: Shaun McGill

    iPhone 5s is on the left, Lumia 1020 on the right. Both are slightly zoomed in & web quality does not help of course.…
  • Still playing with Windows Phone

    18 April 2014, 3:49 pm by: Shaun McGill

    I now have a Nokia Lumia 1020 because I was so impressed with the Lumia 625, impressed enough to request a higher-end review model. I will be honest and say that the only real reason to test the 1020 is the camera which is what most reviewers talk about anyway…
  • The longest app?

    16 April 2014, 10:00 pm by: Shaun McGill

    What app have you used regularly for the longest time? I had to think about this and I believe it to be Pocket Money which I have used for at least 4 years now every single day.
  • Mac Desks

    16 April 2014, 9:00 pm by: Shaun McGill

    Nice desks and all that, but I am convinced I would likely hate most of the people who work this way. It suggests more of a focus on the look than what actually happens on the keyboard. In other words, false.
