Xiaomi 16000mAh Power Bank - a terrific performer - In fact, the title almost had "... but you'll need some gaffa tape" on the end, but I decided it would be too long! Why gaffa tape? You'll see, below, but don't be too put off, since the Xiaomi design is top notch and its performance is, quite simply, stellar. http://ow.ly/2YQTep

Review: the (waterproof) Omaker M4 Bluetooth Speaker - The world of Bluetooth speaker accessories is becoming a little ubiquitous in 2015, but as a smartphone user who's often surrounded by (the risk of) water, whether in the kitchen or shower or camping or gardening, the idea of a fully waterproof accessory rather appealed. Especially as the Omaker M4 has full NFC pairing with any smartphone and is also heavily ruggedised. The M4 is perfect for keeping tunes and podcas... http://ow.ly/2YJfLB

Previous Nokia retail stores will be called Microsoft Authorized Resellers http://ow.ly/2YzjR3
According to the official blog, Microsoft has 'begun the global transition of Nokia-branded stores and Care centers around the world'. With examples already in India and Brazil, previous Nokia retail stores will be called 'Microsoft Authorized Resellers' and will showcase a range of Microsoft 'experiences' and products including Lumia, Surface, Xbox and various accessories and services such as Office 365, in those markets that sell them.

It's an end of season special this week and the team answer listener's questions from email, Twitter and our new voicemail, including:

What would have happened if Apple hadn't made a phone?
Does open source matter in mobile?
Which phone would we save from the fire?
What's the oddest place you've made a phone call?

Also, several #AskRafeAnything questions, including his all-important concrete update.

The Ultimate Nokia E7 mod? - You'll remember my stripdown of the Nokia E7 communicator in order to change its battery? I found it under the keyboard and resting against the phone's back panel. Well, file this under weird and wacky, but reader 'Marc' from Hamburg has taken his Dremel grinder to his Nokia E7 - in fact, to a pair of E7s - and has ground a battery hatch for each. See below for photos! http://ow.ly/2YiIXY

This week Rafe dons his lab coat and schools the team in wonderful - and frequently rare - materials that go into making smartphones and tablets. The team discuss the issues with using such materials and the ways in which they contribute to advances in screens, batteries, components and protective coverings. There's also - briefly - some singing... sorry about that. http://361podcast.com/episodes/s09e09-magic-materials

The Nokia 808 - what is it worth? - Guest writer Stuart Peters provokes thought of the (higher than expected?) worth of a Nokia 808 PureView, 'the ultimate Symbian phone', in 2015. See below for his take on the 808 and a modern approach to use case of the device and its OS, even if it can't be recommended to the masses. http://ow.ly/2YM6w4

ThOR feed reader surfaces with updates on AppList - ThOR, the independent feed reader (compatible with Feedly, The Old Reader, and more), is now in the AppList Store for Symbian and fully updated. And working rather brilliantly, customisable, Readability-integrated, and more. Keep up to date in 2015 on Symbian! http://ow.ly/2YCaGk

Nokia 808 (2012) vs LG G4 (2015) camera data points - I've had a lot (ok, two or three) of requests for pitting 'ye olde' Nokia 808 PureView against the LG G4, brand new and the hottest thing in camera phone technology, and for good reason, it just won out against the Lumia 930 and 1020. But what about the venerable Nokia 808 with its massive 1/1.2" sensor? Time for a few data points, at the very least... http://ow.ly/2YxtZz

Camera head to head: N95 vs 930, the difference 8 years makes! http://ow.ly/2Yl5QC
With eight years since the classic Nokia N95 was selling in the mainstream, with one of the first five megapixel cameras in the phone market and the best, with 1/2.5" sensor and 'Carl Zeiss' optics, I thought it would be interesting to see how far the technology has come. After all, the Lumia 930 occupies pretty much the same photo-enthusiast consumer spot, at least in the Windows phone world, yet it outputs at a nominal 5MP still. But how differ...

This week Ben and Rafe discuss mobile operators (again)... Who's bought who, who's announced what and where some green shoots of interesting innovation are beginning to show, including Google's Fi. Ewan's not convinced. At all.

cuteTube broken but will be updated soon - I'm sure any Symbian enthusiasts have noticed this already, but cuteTube, the premier YouTube client for the platform, is currently broken because YouTube changed its APIs a few days ago (or at least stopped supporting the much-used API 2.0). However, Stuart Howarth, the developer promises an update in the statement below. http://ow.ly/2XLfUD
