Google’s Chromecast Audio isn’t exactly a new product anymore; it’s been on shelves in the US for a few months, following its announcement last September at Google’s Nexus event in San Francisco. We were fortunate enough to pick up a ChromeCast Audio while we were in the states, and it’s been in regular use since in the Ausdroid office. This[Read More…]

In the Australian market, we can be a little blinded to the larger worldwide Android manufacturer ecosystem, especially when said devices live outside the Googleverse. Case in point, Xiaomi is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of Android phones, and smartphones in general (3rd largest at last count). I recently had the opportunity to spend a few weeks with Xiaomi’s[Read More…]

Android tablets have occupied an interesting space in today’s technology landscape; somewhere between bargain basement junk that no one is ever actually seen buying, but they definitely buy, and moderately priced tablets that seem to be good at a superficial level, but just aren’t. There are outliers in the field, such as Samsung’s enormous NotePro devices, which could almost be[Read More…]

After the hugely popular Acer C720P, which Scott loved, Acer has released their next model, the Chromebook R11, for the Australian market. Announced at IFA last September, the R11 offers a new range of form factors for the Chromebook, with a good spec under the hood and a compact size. We’ve not seen many new Chromebooks introduced in Australia of[Read More…]

Here at Ausdroid we get to review a lot of high end phones and it’s what we all love to do. The problem is that the high end phone is not for everyone. Some people just need a phone that does the basics and manages to do that with relative ease. For example, everyone has a friend or a relative[Read More…]

It was only a couple of months ago that Sonos introduced the Play:5 as the newest member of their speaker family and being somewhat into music, audio equipment and generally enjoying good sound I took one for the team and stuck my hand up to review the unit for Ausdroid. After having had the speaker at my house for a[Read More…]

Kleenex, Hoover, Glad Wrap, Band-aid, Fitbit. All brands that are synonymous with the products they represent. It makes it hard for other brands to break into their respective fields. Fitbit’s dominance of the fitness band industry through the minds of the average consumer has made it difficult for other players to make any inroads. Many companies are trying, but not[Read More…]

We were recently invited to attend the launch for Dog and Bone’s LockSmart Bluetooth padlock and came away eager to get some one on one hands-on time with the device. That wish was soon granted, and following a little over a week with the padlock the big question was could the traditional padlock be improved by ‘smart’ technology? Read on[Read More…]

9:33 am on December 18, 2015 in Accessories, News, Reviews

I had a double dose of excitement this week; installation of NBN to my house and the delivery of the Sonos Play:5 unit for review. The timing of the Sonos delivery seemed to compliment the extra bandwidth I now have at my disposal and gives me the opportunity to really give this thing a workout. For anyone who is not[Read More…]

Huawei have been pushing into the Android space hard over the last 12 months, particularly focussed over the last 6 months or so with initiatives such as the Huawei branded stalls showcasing the capabilities of the manufacturer and their devices. They have produced some really nice devices, each with their own strengths and weaknesses; the most recent and publicised being[Read More…]

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…]

Unless you’re really into audio you may not have heard of Focal (unless you read my review of their Spirit One S headphones) but they’re a solid brand who have a great name in overseas markets. They’re nothing like a newcomer to the audio game, for the last 30 years they’ve been making pretty much anything you can think of[Read More…]

Asus Zenfone 2 Laser — Review

8:30 am on November 20, 2015 in News, Reviews

When we reviewed the original Asus Zenfone 2 we found that it was good at delivering above the expectations of someone buying a sub $300 phone, delivering far above what it promised as well. A new iteration of the device has landed and on the surface at least it seems to have the same capabilities to punch above its weight,[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…]

Every year, the release of a Nexus phone is always of interest to the Android community. Nexus represents the vision of Android that Google sees for the next year, incorporating hardware that best shows off the latest version of Android and the hardware features it will support. For the history of Nexus, we’ve been treated to a single Nexus but[Read More…]
