Yesterday, we received the Moto X (2014) at Ausdroid’s Sydney office, and after 24 hours with the phone in hand, I thought it was only fair to share a few impressions with you. I must, first of all, apologise for using a generic header image instead of photos I’ve taken myself, as I’ve not yet had the opportunity to take[Read More…]

Disclaimer: I am a self confessed Nexus fanboy and have owned every single Nexus device there has been. I have tried to be as objective as possible with this first impression post but feel free to attribute my opinion as those of a biased, one-eyed fanboy. Remember when Google announced the Nexus 6? Me neither. It was over 2 months[Read More…]

It wasn’t all that long ago that I remained in love with HTC’s One M8. I’ve owned it since it launched in Australia, and even bought one before Ausdroid’s review was published. I knew that I had liked the previous year’s HTC One that much that the new model, with its dual cameras, faster performance and more would keep me[Read More…]

Huawei might be the worlds third largest smartphone manufacturers but they are still yet to become a household name in Australia. When they first entered the smartphone market in Australia they were exclusively targeting the pre-paid market. The last 18 months have seen them move slowly toward the high end of the market. With the release of the Ascend Mate[Read More…]

Better known for gaming headsets and call centre equipment, Plantronics isn’t a company you typically associate with high-end headphones, but the company’s newest addition to the BackBeat family – the premium quality over-ear Bluetooth noise-cancelling BackBeat Pro – does a lot to change that. Big and Bold At first glance, the BackBeat Pro isn’t going to win any awards for[Read More…]

After the launch of their flagship device, the once venerable manufacturer HTC has continued its onward march of penetrating the smartphone market. Despite having one of the most adored phones of recent years in the HTC One, the Taiwanese company has a way to go in maintaining their growth, and the other devices in their portfolio are key to this.[Read More…]

There’s an ongoing argument about phone sizes. Apple’s move into larger screen sizes means it’s not just happening in the Android market now, it’s industry-wide. Everyone has a sweet spot into which the smartphone size of their heart’s desire falls. Some of us are willing to move that sweet spot upwards as larger phones arrive on the scene, and some[Read More…]

Manufactured by HTC, there were always going to be a few questions asked; not only of HTC but of the device and its capabilities. Despite having produced a couple of quite outstanding flagship phones in the HTC One (M7) and the HTC One (M8), over the last couple of years HTC have had a heavily publicised fall from the dizzying[Read More…]

Jays are a fairly little known audio brand in Australia, often only discovered by people accidentally when Googling for audio gear. They’re a Swedish brand with their office based in Stockholm and while they don’t have a Bose or Sennheiser-grade reputation behind them, their equipment certainly meets the quality expectations of someone who’s spending fairly significant sums of money to[Read More…]

HP have been releasing their Chromebook at a fast and furious pace. It was only mid August when Dan reviewed the upgraded HP 11 (11-2001TU model). At the time Dan made the statement “HP has jumped into Chromebook’s with a vengeance. As one of the largest PC makers in the world, they have the scale and facilities to churn out[Read More…]

Many of us love the open source nature of Android but being open source is a double edged sword, allowing literally anyone the opportunity to download the source code and modify it as they see fit. The Chinese phone manufacturing ecosystem has often been dubbed the wild west of the Android world, with many manufacturers making their own “enhancements” (term[Read More…]

When a company like Samsung, who seems to bring out a new device every other week with a slightly new screen size, tells you “this is the one”, you tend to sit up and pay attention. While Samsung’s been at the forefront of the Android tablet market for a while, it hasn’t really had a clear flagship. The original Galaxy[Read More…]

I’ve had the privilege for the last week or so of having both the Moto 360 and Sony’s new Smartwatch 3 in my hot little hands (or rather, on my wrists). I’m going to write a full review of the Sony Smartwatch 3 next week, but for now, I’d like to preview it with you and compare it against another[Read More…]

We first heard rumours that LG would bring a round Android Wear watch back in August, when the Moto 360‘s release date was still unknown. We already heard from a reader who imported a unit, but still couldn’t wait to get a proper review unit of our own. The mercifully short waiting game ended last week with the Australian release[Read More…]

When we posted a week or so ago about Expansys’ availability of the Sony SmartWatch 3, we began eagerly awaiting a review device which, we understand, is on its way to us. However, Ausdroid reader Marcus Kenny decided to buy one, and has received his already. He took a quick look through his new gadget, and gave us his thoughts:[Read More…]
