Samsung Galaxy Note Edge — Review

Samsung is the king of the smartphone world, at least when it comes to sales. The company holds around 80% market share when it comes to profits and it’s mostly due to their ability to attack every possible facet of the market in their so-called ‘Shotgun’ approach. This has led them to try some quite outlandish designs, sizes and shapes,[Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 — Review

There was a time when a Samsung Galaxy Note was the only viable option for someone who wanted a large phone. Then the market started to shift, screens became larger and 5” is now the norm – even the guys who said “no one’s going to buy a big phone” are making a big phone. How does the Note 4[Read More…]

Moto X (2014) — Review

When I went to the Motorola press briefing back in September this year, I went hands-on with the Moto X (2014) back then, and I didn’t have any strong feelings for the phone either way. So much was my initial impression that when the review device arrived just before Christmas, I honestly didn’t recall much of the device I had[Read More…]

Sony Xperia Z3 — Review

It wasn’t all that long ago that I remained in love with HTC’s One M8. I’ve owned it since it launched in Australia, and even bought one before Ausdroid’s review was published. I knew that I had liked the previous year’s HTC One that much that the new model, with its dual cameras, faster performance and more would keep me[Read More…]

HTC Desire 510 — Review

After the launch of their flagship device, the once venerable manufacturer HTC has continued its onward march of penetrating the smartphone market. Despite having one of the most adored phones of recent years in the HTC One, the Taiwanese company has a way to go in maintaining their growth, and the other devices in their portfolio are key to this.[Read More…]

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact — Review

There’s an ongoing argument about phone sizes. Apple’s move into larger screen sizes means it’s not just happening in the Android market now, it’s industry-wide. Everyone has a sweet spot into which the smartphone size of their heart’s desire falls. Some of us are willing to move that sweet spot upwards as larger phones arrive on the scene, and some[Read More…]

Review: Meizu MX3 and Flyme OS

Many of us love the open source nature of Android but being open source is a double edged sword, allowing literally anyone the opportunity to download the source code and modify it as they see fit. The Chinese phone manufacturing ecosystem has often been dubbed the wild west of the Android world, with many manufacturers making their own “enhancements” (term[Read More…]

Moto G (2nd Generation) — Review

Motorola surprised everyone when they announced the Moto G towards the end of 2013. Rather than aiming for a premium price point and falling short on specs, the Moto G was an unapologetic shot at the midrange market that delivered the essentials for a basic smartphone experience and nothing more at a $230 price point. We loved it, and so[Read More…]

HTC Desire 610 — Review

Since launching as their ‘Premiere’ device, the HTC Desire fell on some hard times. HTC resurrected the brand as a low-mid range series of devices, capitalising on the inherrent good will towards the brand name. HTC has been outsourcing production of the Desire series of phones to save costs recently, which has led to them seeing a financial resurgence. We’ve[Read More…]
