Get yourself £20 off your shopping if you’re on Tesco Mobile

If you are a current or prospective customer of Tesco Mobile, listen up. They seem to be pushing hard (and, by that, I mean that they’re emailing me a lot) to promote their network and are now dishing up extra Clubcard points on selected mobile phones.

If you get the Samsung Galaxy J3 (it’s a bit “meh” but, y’know) for £12.50 a month with 500 minutes, 5000 texts and 500MB of data, you’ll earn 1000 Clubcard points. Also, if you get the Alcatel Pop 4 (I reviewed the 6″ model here) for just £7.50 a month with 250 minutes, 5000 texts and 500MB of data then you’ll also get the same 1000 Clubcard points.

If you spend a bit more on your phone then you can get even more Clubcard points. They’re offering up the Sony Xperia XA1 that we had hands-on with in Barcelona and for just £19 per month you’ll get 500 minutes, 5000 texts and 500MB of data. Not only that, but they’ll give you 2000 Clubcard points, which is basically £20 off your beans and bread next time you going shopping to Tesco.

The lovely PR people, who’ve promised to send me some beans if I mention them, also want me to highlight the fact that you can also exchange Clubcard vouchers for rewards such as cinema trips to Cineworld or Odeon. You can also get meals out at Pizza Express or Prezzo.

The deals are available from Monday 24th April to Sunday 21st May. Head to tescomobile.com for more details.

  • A quick look at the favourite top apps according to App Annie

    var noskim = ‘true’;
    I get quite a few emails from App Annie. They’re an analyst firm which produces business intelligence tools and market reports, and on their site you can have a look at the most popular games and apps for different mobile operating systems.

    Advertising is definitely a big driver, as the big games are familiar if you’ve seen any sort of television show recently. Adverts for Clash of the Clans, Clash Royale, Mobile Strike and Game of War are all familiar to us, and they appear at the top of the games charts this week off the back of that exposure.

    Just behind these, and right next to the likes of Pokemon Go, Candy Crush and Star Wars, you’ll find slot games like Slotomania, and it’s one of many places where you can use no deposit slot bonuses 2017. These all lie in the top grossing games for the iPhone.

    A quick look at the favourite top apps according to App Annie

    The Android top grossing charts are broadly similar, but in the free apps charts you’ll see CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars, Ballz and Word Cookies sitting amongst the other familiar apps such as Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook and Snapchat. Super Mario Run is there too, and it’s received a new update very recently which adds new buildings to collect and the ability to find players using their Nintendo Accounts. You can also now use your Miitomo character as your player icon.

    A quick look at the favourite top apps according to App Annie

    There’s some interesting differences between the US and UK charts, with Pokemon Go still at the top of UK grossing charts whilst it sites in fourth place in the USA. It’s also interesting to see Kodi sitting in the charts, which – despite the core Kodi app being perfectly legal – perhaps shows just how popular those slightly illegal plugins are proving to be on the Android platform. Don’t forget that this includes both Android phones and other devices too, including tablets and set-top boxes that we’ve reviewed here on Coolsmartphone.

  • How to make your family car sound like a V8

    You may remember my indestructible Audi A4. She’s an old girl now and has been on the road for a decade. I bought a Bluetooth OBD gadget to plug into it just so that I could find out what all those error lights on the dashboard are.

    Yes, error lights. There’s a lot of them. They seem to be telling me something but I’ve started ignoring them a bit because they tend to alter on a daily basis. It’s fun and still, somehow, it flew through the MOT.
    How to make your family car sound like a V8

    Anyhow. That OBD Bluetooth gadget (this Cacagoo one) is a great little gadget. You plonk it into the secret-ish port under your dashboard (it’s the one that the AA people and probably your insurance provider might use) and you can get diagnostic data from your engine. You can get other bits of info too and there’s a myriad of apps that’ll show your engine information – revs, battery amperage, fuel consumption, temperatures, oil flow and all sorts of other bits that can be displayed on a dashboard within your phone. You can even combine this with the GPS and the G-force sensor on your phone to find out if you’re driving like a spanner.

    The thing is.. I drive an Audi diesel. She can pootle up the motorway and hit 50+ mpg but, if you’re trying to accelerate hard on a country road, it’ll sound like a big bag of bolts blowing through a turbo tube.

    Then I found a range of apps I’d not seen before in the Google Play store whilst looking around for OBD apps. There’s a load of them here, but I chose RevHeadz Engine Sounds. Put simply, this is an app that’ll play you interactive engine sounds. You can have the engine noises of a range of cars and motorcycles. A GUI will let you change gear, brake and accelerate. You get a little dashboard with a speedometer and rev counter.

    All good so far then. It’s a little bit of fun. A throw-away app that your kids might use when playing with their little Matchbox or Hot Wheels cars. However, this app (and others like it) can connect to the Bluetooth OBD gadget and will read the amount of revs and the throttle control. So, if you’re a super-geek like me and hook it into your car stereo (and whack it up full blast), you can suddenly turn your slightly broken Audi A4 TDI into a petrol-guzzling V8 monster!

    Well, it’ll sound like one anyway. Here’s my random video showing you how 🙂

  • Galaxy S8 hits record sales.

    Galaxy S8 hits record sales.

    Well, it very much appears that Samsung is rising  like the phoenix from of the ashes of the Note 7. (Did you see what I did there?)

    The Note 7 disaster now seems to be far from customers minds, with virtually no impact on customer confidence with the new Samsung products.

    Samsung says that pre-orders for the S8 and S8+ were..

    ..the best (we have) ever seen. Pre-sales for the two devices were up 30 percent compared to the Galaxy S7 pre-orders from 2016. The S7 was the previous best launch we’ve had.

    As yet Samsung isn’t giving away any numbers, and we will have to wait until July when Samsung reports quarterly financials to see how well the sales have done for the company as a whole.

    The S8 doesn’t come bug free through, (what new devices does these days). Some customers are reporting a red tint to the screen, which Samsung have said isn’t a hardware fault and the solution will be coming by way of a software update later this week.

    Are you an S8 owner, have you got the red tint to your screen ? Let us know in the comments..

    Last year, thousands of Samsung Note 7 smartphones were recalled because of battery-related explosion incidents. Needless to say, Samsung learned a major lesson from that experience.
