James and Stefan catch up after a little over a month apart. Life has been keeping the two separate, but they've committed to returning to a regular schedule. Topics discussed on this show include the LG G4, Sony's rumored P2, the HTC Butterfly 3 (along with its terrible ad campaign), European mobile operators blocking Google ads, and briefly mention the major upcoming developer conferences: Google I/O (May 28) and Apple's WWDC (June 8).

Stefan and James would like to apologise for being so slack. 65 days without an episode isn't just poor time management, it's just plain rude. 

To say sorry, the gents in question would like to bestow upon your ears approximately one hour of mobile tech goodness.

In this episode Stefan covers off new phones from HTC, Microsoft, and Samsung; and James talks about his new Sony Z3, backing the Pebble Time Steel, and his iPad Pencil.

All that, and more, in April's edition of... THE VOICEMAIL!

Turn on, tune in, and geek out.

As it's been a while since the last podcast, the team would love to hear your feedback. A five star rating on iTunes is always welcome of course, but your comments and general words of love help validate The Voicemail's existence; so some of those would be great.
