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…]

HTC One M8 vs M8S vs M9 — Camera Showdown

Given the fairly minimal differences between HTC’s One M9 and One M8S, we thought the best way to illustrate one of the two major differences, the camera performance, was with an old fashioned shootout. To that end, we’ve taken three handsets out and about around Sydney today, to demonstrate some different performance from each of HTC’s One M8, M8S, and M9[Read More…]

Though a prize, we undertook to take a proper look at the device in the form of a mini review for Ausdroid and here it is! The Linksys[Read More…]

Asus is a name that nearly everyone knows, although very few know for sure how to pronounce it. For years they have made laptops that have been popular with the general population. They have made the hugely popular Nexus 7 tablets, as well as their own Memo tablets but have yet to make any successful forays into the smartphone market.[Read More…]

We all have a need to access files conveniently. Whether it’s expanding the memory on a tablet or smartphone that doesn’t have a microSD card slot or quickly transferring files from your Android device to a PC, we all need to get stuff done. There’s ways to do it all wirelessly of course, but there’s nothing more re-assuring than doing[Read More…]

Empires and Allies is another in the well worn Clash of Clans F2P battler genre. Does it differentiate itself? Empires and Allies gives you a fair bit of control during battles. Besides the basic tap based troop deployment common to this type of game you can also use flares to direct troops to certain locations. This is useful for plopping[Read More…]

Samsung has lead the Android market with its Galaxy S line of mobile phones for a number of years now, producing one of – if not the – top-selling mobile handsets on the market. The company has achieved mass-market appeal by providing consistently leading-edge specifications, even if the components have been housed inside phones with sometimes-disappointing plastic-heavy industrial design. Paired[Read More…]

Stainless Steel Sony Smartwatch 3 — Review

Sony’s Smartwatch 3 was pretty well received by Chris when he took a look at the original – it went head-to-head with the Moto 360 in the marketplace, and found a permanent place on his wrist. Now, Sony’s released a new SKU of the watch which comes with a stylish stainless steel band, though disappointingly, if you already have a[Read More…]

It’s little wonder that people are growing more and more concerned with how their activity online might be stored and monitored, with Australia’s recent passage of mandatory data retention legislation (and the virtually unfettered access to that information by law enforcement agencies). It seems that we’ve learned nothing from the somewhat disturbing access that the USA’s National Security Agency has[Read More…]

Google has been trying to get a foothold in the loungeroom for years. The ill-fated Google TV saw immediate pushback from content creators, while the Nexus Q never made it to market but still holds a special place in our hearts. The company has had a few false starts, but the Chromecast HDMI dongle – announced back in June 2014[Read More…]

LG has been making TVs, stereos and phones for quite some time.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one feature-packed little beast, and one of the most welcome inclusions is wireless charging powered by Qi. As we’ve discovered, the battery life on the S6 Edge isn’t exactly ideal, but wireless charging offsets that and makes keeping your Edge charged and ready to go that much easier. Wireless chargers can be a little[Read More…]
