On this week's episode, James and Stefan talk about Motorola's new budget smartphone, the Moto G, IDC's data that says big screen phones are becoming mainstream, CyanogenMod now being super easy to install, the pros and cons of 4G LTE, and finally, Stefan admits that he's mistakingly trolled LG for the better part of half a decade.

In a break from our usual programming, James goes completely off-piste (and non-mobile) and calls up one of his video gamer friends in New York to talk about the burning issue on every gamer's lips this winter: which next generation console should I get? 

There's hardly any mobile phone chat here whatsoever; in fact this episode isn't even Voicemail canon, so if you want to skip it, please do. We will not be offended (and Stefan and James will be back later in the week with Episode 074 as per). 

But if you're still here and you're interested, then it might be good to know that all of this kicked off last week James made his purchasing intentions clear in a blog post on his website. The subsequent Facebook commentery (still ongoing) is what prompted this 30 minute nattter about where and why certain people are falling on this particular issue and it's a good listen if you're still on the fence.

Why not tune in and find out what the fuss is about?

Stefan has finally come back from his holiday, and James is eager to pelt him with questions about the three big pieces of news that he's missed. That means the Nokia event in Abu Dhabi, the new iPads from Apple, and of course the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat. But don't think this is a show about "old" news, James also shares his experiences with Lenovo's newest tablets and his trip through Google's mansion in North London.
