The phones that make you go: MWauuauuuughghAARGH!
How do you make a phone that stands out? LG's strategy is to plaster the back of its brand new LG G4 with animal hide. That's right, real bonafide leather made of the skin of dead animals.
Don't think about it too much or it might make you a bit queasy. Not only that but you can get your LG G4 in an array of retina-searing colours. Is it classy or just about the creakiest phone design decision of the last 12 months? We're honestly not sure yet.
However, it's far from the worst mistake we've seen in our time looking over the world of phones. Here are 10 of the top double-take phone fashion disasters.
Samsung NPH-N270 Matrix
Release date: 2003
The first Matrix film inspired a whole sub-genre of rubbish pretenders to its sci-fi throne. And just as the original The Matrix thrust the all-time classic Nokia 8100 into the spotlight, The Matrix Reloaded saw Samsung have a stab at another 'movie' phone: the $500 Samsung NPH-N270 Matrix.
It was meant to be the futuristic phone of our daydreams. It was, well, horrible. Looking like something that belongs on the building site of a Mad Max-style apocalypse rather than a catwalk.
The over-designed speaker flips up and out of the tiny screen while the phone's body is needlessly bulked out. It looks less like a prop from the classy Matrix movies, more like a reject from Batman & Robin. Ouch.
Virgin Mobile Lobster 700TV
Release date: 2006
Dude, there's something on your shoulder. No, seriously, there's a great big lump coming out of your neck. Never has a phone looked so much as it has inadvertently grown an unfortunate puss-filled cyst on its side than the Virgin Mobile Lobster 700TV.
So… why? Well, the 700TV was among a mercifully small group of phones that tried to offer more than just phone features years before app stores as we now know them exploded, and the lump was needed to fit in the extra hardware and controls for a DAB radio and TV tuner.
That's right, the Virgin Mobile Lobster 700TV could receive digital radio and Freeview TV. Sounds pretty neat now, doesn't it? While we'd kinda like these features back now, please, they didn't change the world back in 2007 with this £199 lumpy monstrosity.
Wasn't that expensive, though.
Siemens Xelibri 6
Release date: 2003
Have you ever wanted a phone that doubles as a make-up compact? Of course you haven't. Well that's what Siemens had a crack at with the Xelibri 6.
This was just one phone from a range obnoxiously and reductively aimed at a female audience. You can probably imagine the focus group that came up with it now.
People that use phones every day are busy and don't have the time to pamper themselves before the work commute. So why can't they do it on the way to work?
Fair enough, we've all seen someone sort out their mascara on the train. But do you want your phone to look like a mirror-clad oyster shell that won't even fit in your pocket? Thought not.
Vertu Signature Cobra
Release date: 2006
Luxury phones are a bit of a tough sell for the normal person when standard top-end ones cost the same as many of us spent on our first cars. That's Vertu's game, though.
It makes phones for people who pop Cristal just for the sound of the cork flying out. And sometimes it produces amazing-looking devices. But other times it goes...the wrong way.
The Vertu Signature Cobra was its nadir. It's like Vertu took a good-looking phone, clad it with gold and then filled a piping bag full of dog mess and made a snake-snaped frame for the thing, finishing it off with glitter and sequins.
Maybe some people are so rich that normal rules of taste and decency don't apply. But there's a limit. To top it off, the thing cost $310,000/£213,000 and that was back in 2006.
Release date: 2000
Haven't you always wanted a phone that looks like a toy picked up at the airport to silence a 5-year-old on a flight to Magaluf? No? Well that's what the Motorola V100 seemed to be about.
Translucent blue plastic and more cheap rubbery buttons make us wonder: who is this for exactly?
Well, back in 2000 when the phone was released it was designed to appeal to SMS addicts who found T9 typing just not, well, enough.
For those not born in the '80s, SMS'ing is texting and T9 was how we used to type out messages before everything from gaming to tax returns was done on touchscreens. Kids today don't even know they're born.
Release date: 2003
Sometimes trying hard backfires. Back in 2003 Sony Ericsson was the king of style phones. That's right: Sony didn't make phones on its own back in those days.
However, in trying to nick some of the style cues Sony Ericsson established, Kyocera went way overboard, making a phone that'd make you cringe rather than go 'ooh', in the Blade.
It's no wonder Kyocera phones never really took off. At 23mm thick it was also chunky enough to fill a pocket alone. That's even thicker than some of the construction site-ready phones Kyocera makes these days.
Release date: 2007
Until Android kicked off and the Galaxy series took hold, Samsung was left clutching at straws in the mobile world. Even Motorola had bags more success. But it wasn't for lack of trying on Samsung's part.
Take the Samsung Upstage from 2007. Even the name suggests it thought it was going to wipe the floor with everything else and start a phone revolution.
What was it? A naff candy bar phone with an extra screen and bonus buttons on the back that made it a Jekyll & Hyde monster, a phone and MP3 player hybrid. No surprise: it was a total flop.
Let's not forget, this was the same year the iPhone launched. Samsung comes up with a lot of ideas. Not all of them are golden. Not nearly all of them. It launched for $150 with a contract in the US.
Release date: 2003
Back in the 2000s, Nokia was the king of phones. But it had a few real misses: meet the Nokia 7600.
It had a bizarre teardrop-shaped body that looks nice on paper. But in real life? It's madness. The Nokia 7600 was chunky as anything, and almost impossible to use. This was back in the days before touchscreen and the buttons were plastered on each side of the screen in two totally non-ergonomic straight columns.
Not only did it look weird enough to earn you nothing but ridicule from friends, it was just about impossible to use for the first there weeks too. A stone cold classic. Not.
Motorola StarTAC Rainbow
Release date: 1996
StarTAC? Star of tacky, more like. Making phones anything but black has been a hard road for phone-makers over the years. There were the years of cringey pink mobiles, before companies like Nokia showed how it's done with their Lumia phones. And then there was the StarTAC Rainbow.
The Motorola StarTAC Rainbow was…. well. It was a bold effort. As if a rainbow vomited onto a boring old clamshell phone, its colours just don't fit with the rest of the design. And back in 1997 this wasn't all that cheap either. The original StarTAC cost $1000.
In fairness, the Motorola StarTAC Rainbow is remembered by some as a bit of a minor classic. But you don't half need some cojones to pull one off.
Release date: 2005
We may have forgotten this, but in the 2000s we saw some incredibly innovative phone cameras. The Nokia N93 had an optical zoom. The Nokia N86 has variable aperture. Yep, Nokia was the king of phone cameras back then, and Samsung also made the first 8-megapixel phone.
These high-end cameras were packed into serious phones. But Xcute got the wrong end of the stick and crammed one into a clamshell phone called the Xcute DV1 back in 2006.
It looks like the sort of phone you'd pick up at Carphone Warehouse to send SMSs and play Snake on, but then there's that giant growth in its hinge. It looks like someone has sellotaped a bazooka onto the thing. Boy, this is a bad-looking phone.
But at least it's interesting. It had two screens and the design was mean to make it feel a bit more like the handycams that were popular back in those days.
Your princess isn't in another smartphone
It's Friday. You're giddy with excitement. It can only mean one thing…7 days in smartphones is back again!
Forget being "social" with your so-called "friends", stay here in the dark with as we try to make you laugh. Once. It's the best we can hope for.
Nintendo is finally entering the smartphone market. We've waited years to say it and – phwoar– that felt seriously good.
The bad news is it isn't exactly as we'd anticipated, it looks like Mario and co will be taking a back seat to make way for new mobile franchises.
The move comes after a partnership with developer DeNA who will have free reign over the Nintendo IPs but won't be aiming to create ports of Wii U or 3DS games.
Instead it'll be focusing on new titles – is that really such a bad thing? Well, probably - these things rarely go well.
Even though the Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, rinse and repeat formula can sometimes feel a little tiresome, Nintendo wanting to enter the world of Candy Crush doesn't necessarily fill me with glee.
That said, if anyone can do it with style and create some new engaging characters to go on the journey with, surely it's Nintendo. You hear that Iwata? My credit card is waiting and I'm ready and waiting to make micro payments now.
Microsoft wants your Android!
Windows 10 news now smartphans: Microsoft wants to bring its new operating system to your Android smartphone.
Yeah, that's right, Microsoft wants to wrangle your unrestricted OS, throw up a bunch of electric fences and restrict the amount of apps you'll be able to download.
OK, maybe not quite like that, but the Softies have announced plans to allow users to trial a custom ROM on the Xiamoi Mi 4 that removes all trace of the Android OS for an almost complete version of Windows 10.
It's Microsoft's attempt to steal users from the Android ecosystem and switch them over to Windows Phone, but it'll be some seriously hard work considering the reduced number of apps available on the platform.
Will anyone actually choose to make their Android run Windows Phone? Only time will tell.
Or, well, no.
One hoof forward
One hoof, two hoof, three hoof, four, repeat. Walking was becoming easier by the day as Winston's long recovery continued to drag.
"You're doing great, just a few more steps" reassured the nurse ready to catch him at the slightest sign of a stumble.
One hoof, two hoof, three hoof, four, done. Winston collapsed into the really rather long wheelchair, sweat dripping from his mane. The nurse looked at him sympathetically, stroking his fetlock, and said tenderly: "That's enough for one day... let's get you back to your bed."
Wheeled back to the side of his bed, he clambered onto the sheets and forced himself to look at the odd, faceless black brick that seemed to be staring him from the bedside table.
Over the preceding days and weeks he'd gradually been building the confidence to explore the Apple iPhone and take control of his first ever keyless smartphone. OK, the Storm didn't have any keys... except it did. The whole display was a key. It was glorious, but now it was gone.
In that time he'd learnt how to turn on the display, unlock it, take a few snaps around his hospital room and even get used to the onscreen keyboard. Apps were still a weird experience: he'd finally realised how to download them, but was bewildered by how many there were. Inside, he still missed the choice of just 11 that used to populate BlackBerry App World.
Then the day came: it was time to go home. His rehab was over. It was time to venture back out into the world, a robotic unicorn sent out to live once again.
With an NHS prescribed iPhone 6 Plus in his left hoof, a small bag of belongings in his right, it was time to flip open Apple Maps, type in Mobonia, get confused as to why it wasn't there (before finding it simply on Google Maps) and continue on his journey, but where next?
A flagship for the Shin!
Although likely not the best smartphone you've ever owned, the Samsung Galaxy S ended up being one of the major competitors to the iPhone 4.
Here are some of the highlights from the one and only JK Shin announcing it way back in March 2010. Kevin from Twitter is definitely NOT reading from an auto-cue.
Strange press shot of the week
*Read in your best David Attenborough voice*
Here we see a young stubble-styled hipster out of his normal Shoreditch habitat, discovering the phenomenon of fresh berries.
This specimen, likely known as Atticus to his friends, has lost his Polaroid camera and decides to join the modern world with the Sony QX100 Lens Style Camera for smartphones and tablets.
He attaches it to a Sony Xperia Z2 to snap some blackberries and then ask all his Instagram friends what they are.
Sadly he has yet to receive a response as none of his followers could identify them through the Nashville filter.
Retro video of the week
"You know there's a sexier way to connect to the web." That was the slogan of the Siemens C35i.
It seems the company wanted to sex up its image – if that's even possible with a NSFW name like Siemens – so it employed some proper hot bods to strut around the emptiest, weirdest lit nightclub in all of Germany.
If you can discern what actually happens at the end of the video please let us know in the comments as our tiny little tech focused minds can't work it out.
Proper bits from the site
Remember the best phone you ever had? It was likely the Nokia 3310 and we went on a journey through time to bring you back the best details we could find on it – just look how pretty it is!
EE has replaced its Orange Wednesday's deal with a significantly less exciting streaming proposition. We don't know exactly what kind of films it'll include just yet but we can speculate 70% of them will include Steven Seagal.
Dyson has invested in some new technology to make your smartphone's, and your vacuum cleaner's, battery last even longer.
And finally the auto-tuned Robocop look-a-like that is Will.i.am has teamed up with the fashion brand Gucci to bring you yet another horrible "smartband".
Apple Watch: watch cases and bands
In fact, there are 38 different Apple Watch choices (up from the original 34) and nine default watch faces with millions of customizations, according to Apple.
Here's every Apple Watch face, band and case announced so far, giving you extra time to decide which "iWatch" should be your watch before waiting in line.
Cases: Apple Watch vs Sport vs Watch Edition
All Apple Watches boast the same rectangular design with rounded off corners, but they're divided up into three different case "collections" based on build materials.
Starting at $349 (£299) and costing as much as $17,000 (£13,500, AU$24,000), the names Watch, Watch Sport and Watch Edition, don't tell us a whole lot about those differences, so let's explain each watch case.
The regular Apple Watch
Donning the "regular" Watch puts a highly polished stainless steel case on your wrist, one that comes in glossy metal colors of either space black or stainless steel.
Protecting the precious Retina display is sapphire crystal, which is the same glass that covers the Touch ID home button of newer iPhones.
Sapphire crystal is touted as the hardest transparent material on earth next to diamond. It'll stand up to dings every time your formerly-bare wrist forgets what it's like to wear a watch.
Sport is the the lightest of the three Apple Watch choices thanks to its anodized aluminum case that still manages to be 60% stronger than standard alloys.
It skips out of the expensive sapphire glass in favor of what Apple calls strengthened Ion-X or aluminosilicate glass. This further reduces the weight, making it fit for active lifestyles.
Sure, the iPhone-matching matte space gray and silver aluminum case appears less shiny vs the regular Watch, but Apple's 7000 Series aluminum and Ion-X glass makes it 30% lighter.
It's also the least expensive Apple Watch version at $349 (£299) for the 38mm size and 42mm for the $399 (£339) size.
Watch Edition will be the most expensive Apple Watch at $10,000 (£8,000) because of its 18-karat gold case. It may even be locked inside a safe within your local Apple Store.
It's been crafted by Apple's metallurgists to be twice as hard as standard gold, says the Cupertino company, and will come in two colors: yellow gold and rose gold.
Complementing those cases are color-matching bands made of leather or fluoroelastomer plastic.
Bands are the next step in deciding on the right Apple Watch.
Six different band styles, 18 colors
Apple Watch is all about personalization with six band types and 18 colors, all of which are easily interchangeable thanks a unique slide-out locking mechanism.
Yes, it's a proprietary watch strap - did you expect anything less? - but it looks to be a whole lot easier to switch out compared to the irksome hidden pins of the Moto 360.
I'm okay with that. I want the sport band at the gym and the Milanese loop for a night on the town without the hassle of digging into the watch case with a pair of tweezers.
Available with the regular Watch, the link bracelet is one of two stainless steel Apple Watch bands. This one matches the 316L stainless steel alloy of the case.
It has more than 100 components and the brushed metal links increase in width closer to the case. A custom butterfly closure folds neatly within the bracelet.
Best of all, you can add and remove links with a simple release button. No jeweler visits or special tools required for this stainless steel or space black-colored strap.
One of the classiest-looking Apple Watch bands is the Milanese loop, a stainless steel mesh strap that loops from case to clasp.
Emphasizing that woven metal design, there's hardly a clasp. Its tiny magnetic end makes the strap infinitely adjustable and tucks behind the band for a seamless look on one's wrist.
An out-of-the box option with the regular Watch, the Milanese loop is truly one of a kind in that it only comes in a stainless steel color.
Modern buckle (leather strap)
A modern buckle adorns the bottom the first of three leather options among Apple Watches, complete with top-grain leather sourced from France.
The French tannery is said to have been established in 1803, but Apple puts a tech-savvy twist on the buckle. It's a two-piece magnetic clasp that only looks ordinary when together.
This leather option comes in black, soft pink, brown or midnight blue for the regular Watch and bright black, red or rose gray for the premium Watch Edition, all meant for the smaller 38mm watch size.
Classic buckle (leather strap)
If the Apple Watch modern buckle is a normal-looking watch band with a magnetic twist, then the classic buckle is an ordinary-looking variant without one.
No tricks here. It's just a traditional and secure band that feeds through a stainless steel or an 18-karat gold loop and matches the watch case.
The classic buckle's leather is from the Netherlands and the color choices are as simple as can be: it comes in black for the regular Watch or either black or midnight blue for Watch Edition.
This is the leather-equivalent of the all-metal Milanese loop because it tucks magnets into the soft, quilted leather Apple Watch band.
The more pronounced pebbled texture also stands out from the subtle finishes of the modern and classic buckle. Apple says its Venezia leather sources from Italy.
Apple Watch buyers who go with the leather loop band have four colors choices: black, stone, light brown and bright blue.
Despite its name, the sport band is an out-of-the-box option among all three "collections," not just the Apple Watch Sport.
The band is made of smooth fluoroelastomer, so it's resilient for all activities and fastens with a simple pin-and-tuck closure. Hopefully it's easier to buckle than the Fitbit Charge.
The sport band is available in the most colors on the Sport Watch: white, black, blue, green or pink. Regular Watch and Watch Edition buyers can choose between black or white.
Apple Watch sizes
Less exciting, but equally important is the choice of among Apple Watch sizes. There are two case heights: 38mm and 42mm.
This opens it up to smaller and larger wrists. The 38mm size is more compact, but having that little bit extra screen space by way of the 42mm option may go a long way.
It should be noted that a few bands appear to be exclusive to certain sizes: the modern buckle is limited to the 38mm option and leather loop the 42mm size, for example.
No right-handed and left-handed Apple Watch decisions need to be made at the Apple Store, thankfully. This smartwatch is ambidextrous because the screen can be flipped.
Apple Watch faces
There are nine different default faces from Apple, according to its official website, and likely a lot more to come from third-party developers currently testing out WatchKit.
The great thing about smartwatch faces is that none of them are permanent, something we were fond of when testing out Android Wear smartwatches.
Mickey Mouse is my favorite because I never got a Mickey Mouse watch as a kid. But maybe that'll be reserved for Disneyland visits now that I'm an adult.
Analog watches like Chronograph, Color, Simple and Utility can be swapped in for a more professional look that rivals today's best smartwatch alternatives.
Customizable watch faces
Digital watch faces all have something unique to offer. Motion adds a bit of animal-inspired movement in the background, solar lets you follow the sun's path based on your location and the time of day and astronomy lets you explore space and a rotatable 3D Earth.
Modular, the grid-like ninth watch face, really defines what Apple means when it talks about complications. Most faces can be alerted to include pressing information like stock quotes, weather reports or your next calendar event, according to the company.
Apple Watch wrap-up
With two sizes for most band designs, six band types, 18 band colors and three cases with two colors each, there's a lot of choice going into this smartwatch purchase.
Apple Watch is launching with a lot of personalization, echoing a time when the Cupertino firm introduced variety among its iMac G3 computers and iPod successors.
Which case and band combination I get has ultimately been determined by the price and availability. For such a new product that's bound to be outdated in a few months to years, I'm leaning toward the cheaper Sport Edition when the Apple Watch release date rolls around.
