Braven 710 Bluetooth Speaker — Accessory Review

2:04 pm on June 12, 2014 in Accessories, Reviews

Braven offers a distinctive line of Bluetooth speakers designed for a number of situations. Judging by their website, many of them seem ruggedised or weatherproofed in some way, and being standard Bluetooth devices they’re all Android compatible. We’ve been given a Braven 710 to review, and like what we’ve seen and heard. The Braven 710 retails for $229 from a[Read More…]

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. Until recently, a Huawei handset has meant “cheap and cheerful” –[Read More…]

You might find yourself thinking that the ASUS Transformer Book T100 is a Windows 8 convertible laptop, and wondering what on earth it’s doing on Ausdroid. Well, I sometimes wonder things too, and when ASUS offered us the opportunity to review one of these, I thought hey — I wonder what it’s like? Just because it’s not Android or Chrome doesn’t mean[Read More…]

An iPad mini Clone or something kinda cool Acer has been trialling the waters in small form factor tablets around the 7” mark since they first introduced their Iconia line into Australia. Their newest offering ups that screen size to 8” and from the looks of it, they’re going straight to the heart of design by offering up what’s been[Read More…]

The MeMO Pad 8 is an interesting device, at least to me it is, because I’ve never used an 8 inch tablet before. I wonder if it will be too big to hold in one hand. I wonder if the material that it’s made of will be grippy and soft to the touch. I wonder if the performance will be[Read More…]

Introduced this year at the Consumer Electronics Show, the Galaxy Note|Pro (NotePro from here on in) is a giant tablet, designed to meet the needs of the most demanding mobile professional. The specifications are mind-blowing so far as Android tablets go. It features a 12.2″ form factor, with WQXGA Widescreen (18:10 display ratio), running at 2560×1600 pixels (for those playing[Read More…]

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Review

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra Review

It’s a SERIOUSLY BIG phone! Last October our resident phablet user, Matt Booth, reviewed the Sony Xperia Z Ultra very positively. Fast forward six months and Sony have released it’s follow up, the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra (T2). To call the T2 the younger brother of the Z Ultra is an apt description. It’s slightly smaller, slightly lower specced, and[Read More…]

Asus aren’t what you’d refer to as a newcomer to the IT market and have earned their place in the manufacturers’ pecking order. They’ve been involved in hardware manufacturing for years; PC’s, Laptops, Monitors and more recently Android devices such as the Nexus 7, Transformer Prime and more recently Chromebooks and Chromeboxes. They’ve had a couple of really good devices[Read More…]

If you’re looking for a charging cradle for your phone when you’re riding in the car, you might like to consider a Strike Alpha cradle. Ausdroid has been playing with one for the last week or so, and our review unit designed for the HTC One (M8) has performed well. The suction cup grip isn’t too strong, but when paired with[Read More…]

We’ve reviewed quite a few Chromebooks on Ausdroid now, and while the hardware generally differs a little bit, in the sense of keyboard quality, screen quality and battery life, they’re generally very similar; screen resolution is invariably the same, and ChromeOS is ChromeOS regardless of the platform it’s running on. In short, within a reasonable margin of error, if you’ve[Read More…]

It’s been a long road to market for Sony’s pint-sized powerhouse, the Xperia Z1 Compact. We first heard rumours that the device would arrive in a Japanese-only “Z1 F” incarnation in October of 2013, and Sony was quick to deliver on those rumours at the end of that month. Fast-forward to the end of March 2014 and the device has[Read More…]

Can Toshiba bring their Windows laptop expertise to the Chromebook market Back when I used to sell laptops at retail — back in the late 90’s, early 2000’s — there was one name that was synonymous with quality: Toshiba. Customers would ask for the best, and I’d recommend Toshiba. There was a premium price on their gear but it was[Read More…]

Samsung has managed to put a smartwatch on my wrist, and I don’t mind it – at least, I don’t mind the feel of it. Unfortunately, while there’s some appealing qualities to the Gear Fit, there’s also a few aspects of Samsung’s $250 smartwatch that are a bit of a mess. The Gear Fit is actually a rather attractive piece[Read More…]

Samsung’s Galaxy S5. Announced only recently at Mobile World Congress 2014 and released in Australia last week, the Galaxy S5 is already taking the world by storm. We’ve had the opportunity, and we expect you have too, to read reviews of the 2014 flagship from Samsung (and that’s the last time we’ll use that overworked cliché). It’s safe to say[Read More…]
