A couple of months ago now, Bose launched their new range of SoundTouch wireless audio systems, and for that two months since, I’ve been playing with a Bose SoundTouch 10 here in the Ausdroid office. In fact, I’ve taken it places beyond the Ausdroid office; when I go do some work in the Ausdroid Shop, I take the speaker there[Read More…]

The Nexus range of devices in 2015 were well leaked ahead of their release at the end of September, and the indications were they’d be an impressive batch of devices. While Huawei was new to the Nexus game in producing the Nexus 6P, LG was an old hand, having produced both the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 in years gone[Read More…]

LG’s heritage when it comes to Nexus is well established; their first foray with the Nexus 4 was well received, but nowhere near as successful as the Nexus 5 which is probably the best-selling Nexus handset of all time. That is, until the release of the 2015 Nexus range, where the Nexus 5X from LG is undoubtedly a big contender.[Read More…]

Samsung Gear S2 — Smartwatch Review

3:34 pm on October 15, 2015 in Android Wear and Smartwatches, Reviews

This isn’t Samsung’s first rodeo when it comes to smartwatches, and after some interesting creations in the past, Samsung has taken a clear leaf out of Android Wear’s book (and probably a bit from Apple Watch’s book too) in designing the Gear S2. Gone are the square or rectangular attempts of yore, and in their place is a round-faced smartwatch[Read More…]

Since I first laid eyes on the Moto X Play back in August, I knew I was excited; for the first time in what felt like ages we had the beautiful industrial design of Motorola, paired with stock Android software, and (in 2015) finally the battery life to do it justice. Motorola’s Moto X Play, the second-tier smartphone released as[Read More…]

SAN FRANCISCO: By now you will have seen most of our Nexus coverage I’m sure, but our hands-on videos are something you should probably take a look at. While the video quality is reasonable (and not as great as it should be), you can get a real appreciation for how fluid the new Nexus devices are, how they work, and a[Read More…]

SAN FRANCISCO: If you’re just waking up, Google has unleashed a slew of new devices this morning, and the two headlines are the Nexus 5X from LG, and Nexus 6P from Huawei.

Huawei’s new mid-range handset for Australia is designed to be seen. I mean, it looks fantastic in front of the Golden Gate Bridge, and so it should. With design cues reminiscent of Samsung’s Galaxy S6, and incorporating many of Huawei’s previous design elements, the G8 is a stunning looking device, and it’s a pleasure to use. Internally, the G8 is[Read More…]

The Huawei Watch, announced earlier this year at MWC 2015 in Berlin, has been widely anticipated due to its exceptional design when compared with the current crop of Android Wear devices.

LG’s brand new G4 could well represent the dawn of a newer era in mobile, and I don’t think I’m going too far in saying that. I’m in Singapore at the moment as LG’s guest for the worldwide launch of the G4 today, and having had some hands on time with the phone itself, I’m not so quietly impressed. This[Read More…]
