  2. Lumia 830 review

    The Nokia Microsoft Lumia 830 is a 5.0 inch screen Windows phone 8.1 handset aimed squarely at the middle of the Windows phone market. It is one of the increasingly common not-quite-flagship-but-ultimately-capable Lumia handsets which comes in at a quite reasonable SIM free price of just under £300 (£279 PAYG on EE). The big question though is should you buy it?

  3. Ultimate Ears Boom Portable Speaker Review

    Portable speakers come in all shapes and sizes these days, from the pocketable, to the lets be honest, not so portable. They also vary wildly in price and quality.

  11. The HTC One (M8) Review

    The new HTC One (M8) was launched a couple of weeks ago, and I must admit that I was really excited to be invited to the launch. The original HTC One (M7) was my favourite phone of 2013. It looked and felt great, and did pretty much everything that I wanted.

  17. Has LG missed a trick?

    Just before MWC 2017, Samsung told us that they wouldn't be launching their flagship Galaxy S8 at the trade event, instead they'd be releasing it "some time soon". This should have been everything LG needed to steal a large chunk of important market share from their arch rivals. Unfortunately, it looks like they missed a trick; here's why...

  23. iPad mini Review

    The iPad mini has developed a semi-mythical status ever since the first iPad was released. So much so, that Steve Jobs had to deny that Apple would produce one, as it wasn't optimal. Much like the iPhone 5, Apple has redefined optimal in order to justify the sudden production.

    Super Hi-Vision TV is also known as 8K, or Ultra High Definition, and has 16 times the resolution of current 1080p viewing.

    Good questions, so I went to find out.
