The Moto X Style is, judging by your comments on Ausdroid, one of the most hotly anticipated and widely discussed handsets of 2015. Certainly in our offices, it’s generated a lot of discussion too, and we’ve finally got our hands on the X Style to take for a spin. While Scott will be writing the full review, I want to[Read More…]

Sony announced the release of their latest mid-ranged Android Xperia phone to launch on Australian Shores last month, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua.

Positioned in the middle of Sony’s Xperia range, the[Read More…]

Huawei’s journey from low-end entry level manufacturer to the third largest shipper of mobile phones in the world has been a gradual one. The adoption and spread of the Huawei brand has been slow, though has been speeding up over the last few years, with their business well established in the lower end, ‘cheap’ smartphone market.

Motorola is innovating, and it’s doing it at a cracking pace. The Moto G line is not quite two years old in Australia, and already we’re reviewing the 3rd generation of the product. Ordinarily, we get a bit upset when products iterate too quickly; it’s not good for consumers to buy a handset and have it superseded too quickly. It[Read More…]

The recent emergence of USB-C connections on laptops (Macbook and Chromebook Pixel 2), as well as on the recently announced OnePlus 2, as well as Google’s announcement that they will be supporting USB-C on Nexus devices going forward, has led to some excitement. USB-C offers a standard connector type with high-data transfer speeds and in theory you should be able[Read More…]

Review: Android-compatible Bose QuietComfort 20 Headphones

Review: Android-compatible Bose QuietComfort 20 Headphones

9:00 am on August 10, 2015 in Accessories, Reviews

Last year I reviewed the newly released Bose SoundSport and SoundTrue in-ear headphones and was extremely impressed with them. The sound clarity and range they produced far exceeded any in-ear headphones I have even used before. The comfort and fit of the earphones matched the quality of the sound. Needless to say I was a newfound Bose fan. When Bose[Read More…]

The release of a Motorola Moto series handset has become a big event whenever it happens. Though we waited for four months to finally get the Moto E Gen 2 in Australia, our previous history with the previous Moto E gives us cause to be quite interested in their latest effort. The pricing on the new Moto E was the[Read More…]

Alcatel OneTouch have made a name on lower end hardware, the results have ranged from decent through to less than average. But, since my walkthrough at their booth at Mobile World Congress, I’ve been aware that this company has had a dark horse in the wings, the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3. From the moment I first laid eyes on it,[Read More…]

With multiple streaming music services now available to all there’s a new battlefield emerging for mobile accessories and it’s not headphones, it’s speakers; specifically mobile speakers that have a battery of their own and link to your device via Bluetooth. Bose have a great reputation for producing high quality audio equipment, but can that translate over to a physically small,[Read More…]

Samsung generally make great hardware, and the tens of millions of devices sold suggest that it’s well liked generally by many customers. In recent history Samsung have had one or two flagships available for the top end users who want the best on offer right now, but also a slew of devices that fill the void between the no-name entry[Read More…]

LG’s G4 is the third major smartphone launch this year, following on the heels of HTC’s One (M9) and Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge double attack. As with 2013, LG was a little late to the party, but having taken the time to prepare the release of the G4 a little better, that tactic seems to have borne[Read More…]

ZTE have begun their push into the mainstream consumer marketplace after being a white label manufacturer of devices for our telcos and it has seen the company slowly become both serious contender and competitor to the big boys not only overseas but also here within Australia and we have reviewed a few of their devices, most recently the Optus ZTE[Read More…]

When we received some news about Garmin’s latest GPS, dubbed nüviCam LMT, in our press-release inbox the other week, I decided to take a closer look. Why? What does this have to do with Ausdroid? Well, it’s a GPS and dashcam in one, and (when tethered to a compatible Android device or iPhone) it becomes rather intelligent too. Plus, having[Read More…]
