ASUS MeMO Pad 8 — Review

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…]

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.

Asus Transformer Pad TF701 — Review

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.

ASUS Chromebox — Review

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…]

Sony Xperia Z1 Compact — Review

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…]

Toshiba CB30 Chromebook — Review

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…]
