Phones Show Chat Podcast – Episode 365

The Phones Show Chat Podcast, episode 365 was recorded on Saturday, featuring hosts Steve Litchfield and Ted Salmon. Thanks to Steve and Ted, I was their guest for this podcast.

In this episode, Steve, Ted and I, discuss at length the Obi Worldphone MV1 which is a dual sim smartphone,

The Obi Worldphone MV1 was co-founded by ex-Apple CEO John Sculley and Robert Brunner, the lead designer from Ammunition, the design house behind Beats By Dre. They have just launched the MV1 smartphone in the UK for £99. For more information and specs on this phone – Click HERE.

We also debated the new Google Pixel, its “price” and “features”. Views on the iPhone 7 Plus 2356gb Jet Black, HP Elite X3 and more were all on the podcast.

  1. I agree with Steve (I briefly played with both of the Pixels in a shop), they are overpriced by around £200 each.

    Stereo speakers, water resistance and OIS are a must if Google expects to compete with the iPhone let alone HTC, LG or Samsung.

    I predict they will grab a small niche of users (like HTC or LG) but they’ll lose money forever on them.


  2. I couldn’t edit my previous comment…Gavin, you stated that you could now hold your entire music collection on your 256GB iPhone 7 Plus. Is that in flac, mp3 or aac? I know I can’t tell the difference between flac and 320mp3 using decent headphones.

    You’re an audio buff – are you compromising by using some degree of compression but still with decent ear/headphones as I have to believe you have more than 256GB of music (including high-res)?


    1. Most of my music is mp3 at 320 bit rate. FLAC is great, but the file sizes are huge and not IMO suitable to portability. I never said all 256gb was music, nor did I say it was all used up. I did say that 128gb was not enough. 256gb gives me flexibility. I have tonight about 70gb free 🙂 When you include all the apps, games, documents, other media (incl photos, video and movies), the amount of space disappears fast. All my video editing is done on my iPhone. I also have an Adobe Create Cloud membership and use the photo and video apps. Bit by bit it all adds up.


      1. I see. I have the 128GB iPhone 7 and have around 40GB of music – mostly 320.

        I’m just starting to learn about photography and editing videos, but the phone is a major upgrade from my previous Z3 Compact.
