Huawei are doing some great things recently; they’ve got some strong carrier partnerships in place, they have branded stalls in major shopping centres to increase brand awareness and they’ve been doing great things in the Android Space including the release of some outstanding devices such as the Huawei Watch, the P8 and more recently the Nexus 6P. Huawei has had[Read More…]

The Samsung Galaxy Note series of phones have been instrumental in defining the “Phablet” devices. The larger screen has given users extra functionality and freedom to do more while on the move and adding the S Pen only improved this further. With each iteration of the device, the specs and functionality have evolved to give users a better experience; Can[Read More…]

We don’t often spend a lot of time experimenting with different carriers; oftentimes we’re so caught up with testing new phones and tablets and other gizmos that we forget that most of these connected devices need a SIM card and carrier service to be useful. When we were approached to take Aldi Mobile for a test drive, it was an[Read More…]

Panasonic Lumix CM1 — Review

9:00 am on October 30, 2015 in Camera, Reviews

The camera that’s also a phone The Panasonic Lumix CM1 is somewhat different to your average smartphone camera. In fact it’s probably better to describe it as a camera that’s also a smartphone. And that’s just what Panasonic seem to be aiming for too. Their Australian online listing calls it a Camera Phone. And with a full 1 inch sensor[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…]

Huawei Watch — Review

Huawei Watch — Review

The Huawei Watch has been teasing us with its existence since Huawei first showed it off at Mobile World Congress in March. Fast forward seven months and the watch has finally hit retail stores in Australia and around the world. The Huawei Watch is an expensive option for Android Wear, in fact it’s the most expensive to date, at least[Read More…]

Samsung has a massive lead when it comes to market share in Android, with a large number of handsets aimed at all levels of the market. Their top tier devices obviously get the lions share of the attention though and the most recent announcements are the Galaxy Note 5 and the larger version of their Edge device, the Galaxy S6[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…]

Sony Xperia E4g – Review

11:30 am on October 15, 2015 in Phones, Reviews

Sony’s Xperia E4 was announce earlier this year, and it showed off a new design which Sony referred to as a ‘curved, OmniBalance design’. Basically, more rounded, more curvy. Neat. The Xperia E4 would come in two variants, one supporting 3G (HSPA) only, and one supporting 4G as well. With Australian telcos all pushing their 4G networks, it’s little surprise[Read More…]

The Xperia Z5 isn’t yet released in the Australian market, and Sony is making some bold claims about the quality of its camera, and not without good cause; the camera can produce some amazing results, but is it really the market leader? Last night in Sydney at the local launch, we saw some video footage shot on the Xperia Z5[Read More…]

Australia has not been a very successful market for Motorola in recent times. The past couple of years since firstly Google took over and now Lenovo have seen Motorola begin to slowly make inroads with their new-look phones. The Moto series have been successful around the world but have relatively struggled here due to a lack of carrier interest in[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…]

Sony hasn’t released a tablet in Australia since last year, when it released the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, and that was a pretty awesome tablet. Unlike the phone market which seems to have sort of stabilised around the 5″ to 6″ mark, the tablet market is still a bit more fragmented; sizes vary between 7″ on the lower end, all the[Read More…]
