Introduction

Gordon Kelly is a London, UK based writer and journalist specialising in technology. He works freelance for the BBC, Mens' Health, Stuff, Wired, TrustedReviews and the Scotsman, amongst others. He is also a professional copywriter whose clients include TomTom, SanDisk and Qualcomm. 

Gordon was previously News Editor at TrustedReviews.com where he established the news section and helped it grow from a small start up to one of the country's largest technology sites with over 2 million unique visitors per month. In 2007 TrustedReviews was acquired by IPC Media.

Gordon began his career at VNU (now Incisive Media) as a Reporter on industry title Computer Reseller News (CRN). During his time there Gordon was promoted to Senior Reporter and featured in the Press Gazette (the industry paper for journalists nationwide) for his investigations into distributors' anti-competitive behaviour. He was also ranked amongst the top four most influential IT journalists in the country.

In the spare time he has Gordon is a film buff, guitarist and keen sports motorbike rider. He is also writing on a novel which has garnered interest from a number of publishing heavyweights as well as the BBC.

Academically Gordon attained a First Class Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from the University of Essex and a Master of Arts in American Studies (specialising in literature and politics) from the University of Nottingham.

Trivia about Gordon: he loves the city but was brought up riding horses in the countryside, suffers the horrors of supporting Newcastle United and never tires of being asked: "But you don't have a Geordie accent?"

+Gordon Kelly Work gave me the iPhone 6, and I'm just floored by what a bad design it is. it should have either a 5" screen or be about 4mm thinner. I have huge hands, and after you put the iPhone 6 in the mandatory otter box you need to protect the prissy thing, you can't onehand it anymore. Hence the iPhone 5S. I've put it in a morphie case so it will almost have the battery life of a regular Android phone.

Honestly, I have a heavy dislike of Samsung because of how they do business. I wouldn't care if they dried up and blew away, as long as they stayed in the components business. The entire industry would be screwed without their parts. But I try to stay objective.
