Asus Fonepad — Review

Unequivocally, the most successful Android tablet to date has been Google’s Nexus 7, manufactured by Asus. But what would happen if you took the Google out of the Nexus 7, and replaced its NVidia Tegra 3 with an Intel Atom CPU, adding phone capabilities along the way? Well wonder no more, as the Fonepad is exactly that. Intel has yet[Read More…]

Oppo Find 5 — Review

Oppo Find 5 — Review

That display and the audio, does the rest of the phone hold up? Late last year, Oppo announced their latest flagship device, the Find 5 and over the last few weeks, I have been putting it through its paces and seeing what I thought of this 5 inch phone.

Accessory Review: Aranez Flip Leather Case for the Samsung Galaxy S4

Over the past week I’ve had the joy of trying out the Aranez Flip Leather Case for the Samsung Galaxy S4. After the infamous smashing of my Galaxy S4 display a couple of months back, I’ve been keen on trying out accessories for you Galaxy S4 owners that are worth getting for your own device. So what did I think[Read More…]

More details about the HTC One Mini leak out

We all know that HTC are going to release a lower-end version of the HTC One sometime soon. Firstly, because releasing lots of phones is what HTC does; and secondly because they’ve told us. As we (presumably) get closer to the release date of the M4, or One Mini as it’s apparently now called, we’re starting to see more and[Read More…]

Huawei Ascend Mate — Review

Can Huawei compete in an increasingly crowded super-sized phone market? A lot of our time at Ausdroid is spent paying attention to the top tier of Android device manufacturers – while Samsung is doubtless the heavyweight of the Android world, you’d almost certainly include HTC and LG as peers. Below that, there exists a broad second tier, where other manufacturers[Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy S 4 — Review

The Galaxy S III was super popular, but can Samsung repeat last year’s success against renewed competition? The Samsung Galaxy S 4 is set to be the hottest smartphone of 2013, and considering the success of its predecessor, will likely cement Samsung’s place as the number one smartphone manufacturer in the world. It does face some tough competition from all[Read More…]

HTC One — Review

It’s crunch time for HTC. After a disastrous 2011 in which they released a boatload of devices that were pretty much the same phone but a bit less dodgy, they decided to focus on one ‘hero device’ that would carry their brand. That device was the HTC One X, and to HTC’s credit it was actually a very good phone[Read More…]

LG Optimus G — Review

Is the Optimus G just the Nexus 4 with LTE, or something better? LG has struggled in the last few years with their smartphone attempts, but since the release of the L Series as pre-paid offerings, they’ve begun to show signs of life in the Australian market. Last year they took the number two pre-paid manufacturer spot, showing a strong[Read More…]
