Accessory review: Magnetic Charging Dock and Sonivo Fusion Bumper Case for Xperia Z2

I recently had an opportunity to spend some time with the Sony Xperia Z2, a device I really enjoyed. While I was reviewing the phone, I was contacted by Yianni from Gadgets 4 Geeks, to see if I wanted to try out some accessories.

ZTE V969 — Review

ZTE isn’t a brand you’re likely to have heard of – yet.

Huawei Ascend G6 — Review

Huawei has been evolving in front of our eyes for the last couple of years. Bit by bit, device by device, the Chinese manufacturer has been releasing handsets designed to appeal to a more upmarket customer than some of the bargain-basement handsets we’ve seen them deliver in the past.
