Is the HTC One (M8) your new Mate? HTC has a long and proud history in the mobile industry. From their early years as an ODM (original design manufacturer) making phones and mobile devices to be branded as HP and Palm, HTC have grown through leaps and bounds to their current standing as one of the leaders in design and[Read More…]

Samsung Gear 2 — Smartwatch Review

Samsung Gear 2 — Smartwatch Review

Samsung’s Gear 2 is the anticipated successor to the original Galaxy Gear concept launched by Samsung last year. Where the original Galaxy Gear had a few issues — which you can discover in detail in our review — the Gear 2 makes some leaps and bounds forward to become quite an acceptable smartwatch. Having recently savaged the Pebble Steel as[Read More…]

For the last week I’ve been playing with Jawbone’s latest Bluetooth headset, the ERAtm. Marketed as the smallest, lightest, most comfortable headset that Jawbone has created, it makes some bold claims. I’m perhaps not the best person to review a Bluetooth headset, as I come at them from the angle of never having found one that I enjoyed using, much[Read More…]

One of the best things about modern phones in my opinion is the wireless charging via the Qi standard. The ability to easily just place a phone onto a pad and have it charge and then be able to pick it up quickly without being constrained by an attached USB cable or having to disconnect this cable before using the[Read More…]

The Pebble Steel is the second generation Pebble smart watch, following on the success of the original Pebble, after its own success as a Kickstarter graduate. The Pebble presents a simple premise: a watch that doubles as a ‘second screen’ for your smartphone, allowing you to see emails, notifications, reminders and the like on your wrist without having to pull[Read More…]

So, I bought a Samsung Galaxy S5. I didn’t intend to buy it, but I saw it in the store yesterday and a couple of things lured me in. I’m also becoming a bit bored with my Nexus 5, which didn’t help. I’m not sure whether I’ll keep the S5 or if it will become eBay fodder, but I’m giving[Read More…]

The QX100 Lens-style camera that can be attached to your Smartphone, but is it worth a shot? Manufacturers have been including cameras in mobile phones for over a decade and as phones get more powerful and portable, so have the built-in cameras. With these advances in camera technologies, consumers want to be able to take high quality photos from a[Read More…]

Haswell means more power for longer, but is it worth the higher price? HP joined the growing list of OEMs manufacturing Chromebooks with the HP Chromebook 14(14c001tu) back in March last year. They’ve since followed up with the Chromebook 11 and a Chromebook 14 followup the HP 14-Q002TU. It has upgraded hardware and a more interesting array of colour options,[Read More…]

There’s a plethora of mobile accessories out there nowadays. As you’d expect with an industry as huge as mobile telecommunications, the accessories range from the cheap and nasty, to “budget concious”, high quality, impact protection, style/professionalism to the completely ridiculous! You’ve also got to contend with branches of accessories for devices, not getting accessories if you purchase a device that’s[Read More…]

Playing media on your TV shouldn’t be hard. I have very little patience for messing around with a device just to get video and audio to play on a big screen, and I’m always looking for a better way to do it, so when I was offered the chance to review the Minix Neo X7 Android-powered Mini PC from Expansys,[Read More…]

Is curved and flexible something that should be a ‘thing’? LG has been slowly climbing to the top of the Android mobile phone market for a few years, quietly improving their hardware over different models to the point where their flagship G line of phones are anticipated with much enthusiasm. When LG announced they were releasing a curved phone, it[Read More…]

With so many running, cycling and various assorted fitness apps out there at the moment I thought I would take a look at one of the more popular cross fitness styled applications, Strava. Immediately there’s a lot to like about the app, regardless of whether you’re on Android or iOS (clearly my testing has been done Android, not the latter).[Read More…]

Camera phones have been around for more than a decade, and not a lot has changed with their overall function in this time. Modern smartphones may have more advanced specifications compared to the early camera phones, but they still function like a simple point and shoot camera. Now Sony is trying to change our views on how smartphones interface with[Read More…]

The HP Chromebook 11 enters an increasingly crowded market, where there are (at least in Australia) a good number of choices in Chromebooks around the $300-$400 mark. Already we’ve seen the Samsung Chromebook, Acer C7, Acer C720 and glimmers of an HP Chromebook 14, but there is definitely room left for innovation in this space. Chromebooks are often criticised for[Read More…]

Can LG supersize the excellent G2 smartphone and weave the same magic in tablet form? We haven’t seen a lot of activity from LG in the tablet market, despite its relative maturity. Looking back, LG last dipped its toes into the nascent Android tablet market when Honeycomb was officially A Thing with a number of devices that never really set[Read More…]
