There’s long been a split in the market between the “flagship” phones manufacturers launch with much pomp and circumstance like the Galaxy S5 or One (M8) and the second-tier devices like the Galaxy Ace or F Series. While expensive high-end phones allow manufacturers to show off their latest and greatest technology, many of them are keenly aware that the real[Read More…]

Let’s just get this out of the way now. Touchwiz; you either love it or hate it. My first Android smartphone was the original Samsung Galaxy S I9000 “iPhone killer”. I didn’t mind TouchWiz back then as I had nothing to compare it to, plus it didn’t feel that heavy. As for the current version of TouchWiz running on this[Read More…]

HiSense Vision TV — Preview

HiSense Vision TV — Preview

As you can see, we’ve got a new toy in the Ausdroid office this afternoon, and its a doozy. Readers, I’d like to introduce you to HiSense’s latest Vision range of televisions, and this one’s a (meagre?) 50″ large. They come in sizes up to 80″, and they’re razor thin, but that’s not the coolest thing. You see, the HiSense[Read More…]

When I attended the Motorola breakfast announcing the Moto E and Moto G 4G back in May this year, I had to say that at least in relation to the E, I didn’t have high hopes. By that stage, I’d already reviewed the Moto G, and while it (then) lacked a 4G option, it seemed to me to be the[Read More…]

Samsung’s making a big push this year with their Multiroom Audio products under the Samsung Sound name. We had a brief introduction to the products at their Smart TV launch in April, followed by a full launch event in May and an exclusive concert series over the next couple of months. It’s taken a bit of time for the review[Read More…]

Oppo is one of the ever increasing batch of “nearly there” brands who have some nice hardware, pretty acceptable software. The Oppo N1 is a solid phone which looks great and feels nice in your hand, but can a phone that’s 6 months old with no LTE connectivity at $689 (16GB, Colour OS version of the device) stand up in[Read More…]

The term ‘Paperless Office’ has been around for some time now, but we’re a long way away from it being a reality. Companies still require you to physically sign documents they email you before re-digitising them and returning them, and there’s no real ‘standard’ for digital signatures at the moment. As Android and ChromeOS users, of course Google has options[Read More…]

Fitness trackers are a-dime-a-dozen these days. There’s a large market out there that’s ripe for the taking and with no clear dominant manufacturer there are some deep pockets out there looking for the right product. The Smartband is Sony’s first fitness tracker, and they’ve delivered just a little bit more than others. The Sony Smartband is what Sony call a[Read More…]

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. I agreed and he sent me two new toys to play with; a magnetic charging dock[Read More…]

Editor’s Note: This review has been contributed by @AdrianGHughes – please make him feel welcome! There’s been a marked increase in the number of “device finders” in the last couple of years. These are small bluetooth keychains and dongles that you can attach to something valuable, and use a companion app on your smartphone or tablet to alert you when[Read More…]

Editor’s Note: We don’t cover many Android-based gaming consoles here on Ausdroid, so we jumped at the chance to publish a review of the JXD S7800b, imported by Jason Weber of Dark Side of the Pants – please make him feel welcome! Having previously owned an NVidia Shield, I’ve been looking for an Android gaming device to satisfy an itch[Read More…]

2013 was a good year for Sony. After spending several years trying to get it right, the Xperia Z finally had people talking about them in the same breath as industry leaders like Samsung and HTC. The phone’s premium design with quality internals ensured popularity with power users, and it brought features like waterproof and dustproof into the mainstream –[Read More…]

ZTE isn’t a brand you’re likely to have heard of – yet. They’ve been active in various markets around the world under their own brand, but kept a low profile in Australia, producing whitelabel products for Telstra and occasionally, Optus. That’s changing now, as they’ve entered the Australian retail market with their first ever own-branded dual-sim smartphone – the V969.[Read More…]

I absolutely fell in love with VVVVVV when I grabbed my first Humble Bundle for PC and despite never completing it, it became my number one favourite indie game of all time.  So when I saw the game had been ported to Android I was over the moon, I just had to buy it.  At first I was a little[Read More…]

The world of fitness tracking gadgets is overrun! There’s already a lot of options out there, and thanks to sites like Kickstarter there’s more entering the market all the time. Jawbone has been a well-established brand in the accessory market for a while though, and has been built a profile in the fitness tracking world for the last couple of[Read More…]
