Never take me alive pig filth, my name’s mr wank sock and i’m replacing chris today, because he drank too much hand sanitizer and now he’s passed out in a pile of poke, but don’t worry i’m much funnier than that bold piece of crap. What the hell! What the hell’s going on man, mr wanksock, what are you doing here? Oh arena dog, just in time just in time, for what the show text bear weekly, yeah being silly, no god, christ, yep yeah, you’re right, oh of me, blue! My head is absolutely killing me today. Did you slip something in my pint again just do the jingle already you melodra slap head, expert, weekly, so lots of tech news this week, but of course, the big launch involved, hmd global spaffing out a total of six new nokia branded smartphones, all of them supporting That traditional, tasty nokia design and also a nice friendly budget price that won’t cause instant anal eruptions. So first up is the crazy, cheap nokia c20, which costs just 79 quid and comes in a charming choice of pink or blue. This android go phone. Has a 6.5 inch screen or 6.517 inches according to the specs that’s, just hmd, making sure they are on every last nanometer. Just like a teenage lad. Measuring his thingy you’ve got a removable 3000 milliamp battery. Quite the novelty these days, plus an audio jack micro. Sd support a single 5 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel selfie shooter housed in a nipple notch and the c20 is powered by the catchily named unisock sc98638 processor boner time a step up from that is the nokia g20 at 130 bob – and this is a Full fat android 11 blow with the same size, hd plus display this time, powered by a mediatek, helio, g35 chipset and sporting.
A non removable, 5050 milliamp battery you’ve got a quad lens rear cam, including a 48 megapixel main chooser, and an 8meg selfie cam too, and if you’ve got a bit more spare cache line about then definitely check out the nokia x20 for 300 of your british pounds. This 6.67 inch monster upgrades the display to a full hd panel, plus you’ve got a snapdragon 480 chipset with 5g support and a proper zeiss branded camera arrangement. If that one gets you all tingly in the trouserial department, then definitely check out my hands on review, which is already live here on texpert and all three of these phones also have a slightly cheaper sibling that is launching at the same time as them. The c10. The g10 and the x10, which cost a wee bit less but also trim the specs slightly in order to achieve that cheaper price point. So, for instance, you’ve got the x20 sporting, a 64 megapixel primary camera in the case of the nokia x10 that is reduced to a 48 megapixel snapper, along with some smaller memory and storage options, and all these nokia blows, except for the c10, will be hit in The uk from the end of april, although the x10 and the c20 are not expected here until june, but of course good things come all over those who wait: that’s that’s, how the scene goes right and, of course, more big news this week as lg finally dropped. That axe on its smartphone division, which was kind of inevitable, given the fact that i’ve been pissing away ridiculous amounts of money for countless years now, but all the same, that news hits tick fans pretty damn hard, just like that bit in game of thrones, where sean Bean had his lovely head lopped off and oh, i guess spoiler alert there if anyone who still hasn’t seen game of thrones now lg has been in the mobile game for decades now.
But my personal introduction to lg phones was the batshit mental optimus 3d, with its weird migraine, inducing glasses, free 3d display and the precisely three apps that actually supported it. However, i was truly sold after the incredible lg g2, which i awarded a full five stars in mobile choice magazine. Although the leathered up g4 was certainly more of a character, boston spectacular hand feel that made my trouser truncheon rather twit trouser truncheon, rather twitchy that’s a bit of a mouthful that’s. What your mum thought last night, of course, not. Everyone enjoyed every aspect of lg smartphones, such as that incredibly heavy launcher, which was just as remorseless as any grpg out there. If you didn’t fully commit yourself to that, rather intimidating menu, setup and the slightly off the wall features, then chances are, after just a few minutes, you’d end up torn to shreds by a giant rat or something like that i’m kind of up my metaphors here. Of course, the korean giants didn’t always get things right for one, those flex, phones, aka. The banana phones were proper, weird and the g flex 2 suffered from serious overheating issues that actually to be fair, made. It rather pleasant to slip inside your pocket during those winter months and i’ll. Never forget lg boston about how that phone had a self healing back. So, basically, as soon as i pulled it out the box, what did i do? I flipped it over got a paper clip and scratched a massive gash from one corner to the opposite, and did it heal up? Did it bollocks and who can forget the puke inducingly cute cartoon characters who embodied lg’s aka fournet range, including a female one called yo yo, whose singular trait was her love of greasy grub, truly a pink anthropomorphic blob after my own diseased heart, but it was impossible To get crossed with lg, even when it spaffed out total duds because let’s face it, it was one of the few mobile manufacturers out there who was truly innovative and yeah apparently i’m, one of the only tech youtubers, if not the only tech youtuber who thought that The lg wing was an absolutely frankly ridiculous idea, but you know again: at least it was different from everything else out there, and i do wonder what other crazy that lg would have spaffed out if it continued to produce smartphones and just as i thought, when cruel Boy, king joffrey was violently assassinated at his own wedding.
I reckon that the world will now be sadly a less interesting place. Oh spoiler alert again, i guess, and last up this week, lenovo launched its latest legion, dual 2 gaming phone to take on the rog 5 and the red magic 6.. This big glass bastard with the obligatory flashing, arse packs in some serious tech, including a near 7 inch amoled, screen, dual coolant fans and the same hilariously suggestive pop up selfie cam action. A dual battery setup means you’ll charge this whopper in around half an hour, while lenovo has crammed in a buttload of gaming features, including a multitude of physical triggers and some proper strong haptics. The lenovo legion. Dual 2 can be yours from mid may, starting from 799 euros. Pre orders are open now and my full gaming review will be live imminently and those are the biggest tech headlines from this week. Just gone so now. Regrettably, it it’s time for the party show it’s about as enjoyable to watch as that bit where rob stark got torn to shreds and then his mum, oh yeah, more spoilers, but come on man. How old is game of thrones buying? Actually, everyone has seen it, especially after you’re a freaking lockdown. I mean what have you been doing with yourself, otherwise, you’ve been watching mrs brown’s boys, you haven’t been watching mrs brown’s boys. Have you have you been watching? Mrs brown’s boys banned from the show viewer comments? Alrighty, so to get the ball rolling this week, we’ve got rhys clunas, who says what is the matter with this guy uh i don’t know reese.
It could be one of several different things. It could be uh too little alcohol, too much alcohol, not enough caffeine or a caffeine overdose. You see my system is kind of like a fine antique engine you’ve got to keep it perfectly lubricated and in full work in order, otherwise it just kind of shits the bed and goes a bit cuckoo pre order, your own, mr wank sock right now, just 19.99, Including shipping comes in two flavors cheese or extra crispy, so next up msm007100 says my girlfriend says your eyebrows are eating your face. Um don’t worry mate, it’s a symbiotic relationship; basically, they sit there. They keep my face from freezing over in this stupid british weather and in turn they absorb all of the heat generated by my immense brain when i’m thinking up all of those hilarious, clever, knob gags next up richard b, says what unicorn superpower is a six i’m Asking for a friend uh one second richard here we go phoebe’s princess powers. Uh number six is the ability to read minds, apparently, which sounds quite good, but then i guess it would be kind of a blessing and a curse just be kind of distracting when you’re. You know, speaking to someone – and all you can hear in your head is oh what i wish you just off. That light is shining right off the top of his bald head next up neutrally presented, says nice, vid man, much love from mongolia and mongolia.
Much like finland was a place. I knew very little about until i watched a tour program about it, hosted by a ramesh ranganathan uh, which is looks like an awesome fun. Of that i mean i’m all in just to check out the ridiculously massive statue of genghis khan. That thing looks crazy and apparently, mongolians are big fans of vodka as well, which i’m 100 jump on board with as well. You’Ve even got apparently milk vodka, not sure. If that’s, actually a thing or just some rumor, that i read about uh but yeah i’m, not really a big fan of milk, but if it’s got booze in it, that’ll work uh next up david fassoku. Sorry, if i’ve completely up the pronunciation of that uh says: dude what’s your beef with mk bhd uh, absolutely zero beef with mkbhd uh. Lastly, i was just pointed out the uh difference, uh in the style between his videos and mine, he’s gone for the slick, studio, vibe, the really high production values and i’ve just gone for cramming in as many inappropriate dick jokes into 10 short minutes as possible. The only thing that lad’s done, which has knocks me a little bit, is not so long ago he published a video which was titled, something like. Why does nobody ever buy a sony smartphone and if you look back through all the smartphone videos, he’d done previously, they’re 99 samsung apple with occasional four is into like one plus.
In fact, this very topic actually came up on this short. I can’t remember exactly how, but it meant i dove back into his back catalog and saw how long ago, he’d actually featured a sony smartphone, and the answer was the xperia z5 premium, which came out in 2015., so yeah gee. I wonder why more people don’t know about and therefore go out and buy sony smartphones. Oh bit of a downer here, uh etienne, says jeffrey, is indeed dead, jeffrey uh of rainbow fame. If you missed last week’s episodes, he apparently died in 2018. uh. The people said pneumonia, but we all know that zippy held him down. While george battered him with a golf club, i mean that’s fierce it’s. Almost certainly private games gone awry in the rainbow household. I won’t be surprised if bungle sat on his face and smothered the poor bastard still on the subject of rainbow. It might as well become like a full time segment in this show now pretty much uh wolf says: omg rogen and freddy many a night. I fell asleep with gin on my mind, thanks for bringing back some happy memories, happy memories indeed, and you know, i reckon that rainbow’s probably actually responsible for my awakening as a nipper. I seem to recall watching her clamber into bed sandwiched in between rod and freddy and both of my testicles immediately thunking down into place. Uh next up amanda says your reviews rock happy, bourbon or tequila day uh.
Is that a thing bourbon or tequila day? Why not? Bob and antigua day, uh next up neil says chris, have you ever been to ireland and if not, why not? And if so, why didn’t you stay? You know what i never ever have set foot on irish soil and i don’t know why you know it’s, really freaking close and it’s full of pubs. I think it’s. The same reason. I haven’t really been on many holidays around the uk in general. I’Ve only been to wales, the once, for instance, scotland, a handful of times but that’s about it. I think it’s just because there’s everything so close, you’re, just like oh, i can do that anytime. So you know let’s let’s bugger off around the world, while you can and actually i’m pretty bloody glad that i did that well, i’m, probably not going to go on a foreign holiday again, any any time, soon uh! So, yes, what island i’ll, probably roll over there uh before too long, get myself over there for the funny festival at the the muff festival on the map festival um, which yeah i mean that’s got ta, be done. Uh, oh obligatory tech question of the week. Damien says: okay, so here’s my question buddy. I have broken the display of my snapdragon s10. Is it worth fixing it up, or should i go for a new phone if new, i really want one as compact as the s10, because i’m bored of huge ones not like your mum, then hey yeah, so he’s got the snapdragon model of s10, so good on.
You there good choice but apparently it’s 250 euros to get the screen fixed, ouch, um, so yeah i’d say probably go for a new one. Instead, uh with that criteria, it’s important the pixel 5 is one of your best bets it’s, a six inches. So reasonably compact, like the s10 good bit of tech up to date, specs and everything and uh. You know a couple of years: guaranteed os and security updates. You’Ve got that future proofing as well, which wouldn’t really have with the s10 uh. Otherwise, the sony xperia 5 mark ii as well another classic nice and compact as well good comfortable hand, feel for nafta, and i did round up the best compact phones at the start of the year. So go check that out for more on all that shenanigans and last up because again time has just friggin disappeared, as always leah says: what’s your favorite cereal and is it milk first or cereal? First, a few, a question: more that’s on my sort of technical level: i’m gon na admit i’m, more of a pop tarts man as well, and therefore negates the need for milk. So a massive, thank you to everyone who commented last week, fantastic comments, as always: apologies. If i didn’t get to yours uh this week, i’ll try and smash through again as many of them as possible next week, friday at noon. So do leave your comments, theories, uh, random remarks, constructive criticism, etc. Down below so let’s have a quick look at the week ahead and oh boy, it’s the big one baby wednesday, the 14th of april sony is going to be launching its fresh new experience.
Several shiny delights, all very long and very slender, coming at you, that’s actually happening at 8. 30 am at uk time on that wednesday. It’S, nice and early so jump out of bed wipe the crust from your eyes empty your bowels and then get ready for a good bit of xperia 1 mark 3 and xperia 10 mark 3 action. Next we’ve got a couple of other bits as well like tcl. Will potentially be launching some new smartphones, it looks like on thursday, the 15th, so stay tuned for some potentially hands on action with us and then, of course, good bit of textbook weekly on friday and some other fun bits in between as well.
