  1. LG G3 Review

    LG has always been a bit of a sleeping giant to most people. Whilst many of their handsets such as the G2 were praised by people on this site, and developed a bit of a cult following, that never really translated into sales. Flagship handsets from Samsung, Sony and HTC tended to capture the Public’s attention far more. LG have been hoping they finally change that story with the G3, which was launched a couple of months ago. So, what is it like?

  2. Thoughts about the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus

    The new iPhones have been out for two weeks now, and since the dust has settled and I’ve had time to use both versions, countless reviews have been written, so I won’t add to that list. Instead, I thought I’d write a brief article about my thoughts and experiences.

    I’ve not been an iOS user for two years now. Some of you may remember I had my iPhone 5s stolen a year ago, so although I maintain I’ve bought every iPhone on launch, I’ve not used any iOS device for a significant amount of time. It’s interesting coming back to it after having missed iOS 7 and Touch ID. It’s certainly helped give me a fresh look at it.

  3. Arcam miniBlink Review

    If you’ve not heard of Arcam before, they are a very well respected audio electronics company who make lots of lovely high end gear, for your stereo / home cinema system. The Arcam miniBlink is a small Bluetooth enabled Digital/Analogue Convertor (DAC) designed to hook up to your stereo so you can stream music from your phone etc to your stereo, but what is it like?

  4. Dell UZ2715H UltraSharp 27" Monitor Review

    The Dell UZ2715H UltraSharp monitor is one of Dell’s recently launched screens aimed at the business user. As well as the large 27” screen, it also offers a built in webcam and speakers, to keep the desk tidy, but what is it like?

  5. The OnePlus One Review

    Most people have probably never heard of OnePlus. Its founder is an ex-Oppo executive called Peter Lau. The company’s ownership and relationship with Oppo is unclear, but this Chinese company has a lot of ambition, and its motto ‘Never Settle’ reflects that. The One is their first handset and has been making ripples. Partly because of its price (£229 for 16GB and an astounding £269 for the 64GB version), and also because of the difficulty in actually getting hold of the handset.

    OnePlus has an unusual sales channel in that it’s by invitation only, and the only thing harder than getting an invitation is getting any form of response from the company’s press team. Getting back to the handset though, what is it like?

  6. 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. The new Ultimate Ears Boom comes in somewhere towards the higher end of the market, being both portable (18cm tall and 538g) and well built, but what is it like?

  7. 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.

  8. The Nokia Lumia 1020 Review

    The Nokia 1020 has been out a little while now, but we've recently had the chance to spend a couple of weeks with a yellow 64GB version.

    In a market where many handsets look very similar at first, and only the size of the screen and bezel look slightly different, the Nokia 1020 stands out both for it's design and stand out feature, the camera. So what is it like?

  12. HTC One Max Review: It's Huge!

    I absolutely loved my HTC One, and still miss it; so I was super excited to have the opportunity to review the HTC One Max. Having spent a reasonable amount of time with it, I thought it was time to share my thoughts.

  13. Sony QX10 Lens Review

    The Sony DSC-QX10 is a curious beast. It's Sony's first stab at a new genre of photo accessory for mobile phones. We were curious as to what the fuss was all about and so we have one to review.

  14. iOS 7 Introduction and Guide

    I know I promised a review of iOS 7, but I realised that everyone's who's interested has probably already read a review by now, so I've decided to do a video guide to what's new in iOS 7.

  15. iPhone 5c Review

    Ok. I've had my iPhone 5 and 5c for a few days now, so I thought I'd provide a basic review for those who might be interested in Apple's return to colour.

  16. 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.

    But what is it like?

  17. Review: Super Hi-Vision TV - The Future Now

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

    When I told friends and family I was going to BBC Broadcasting House, to watch a Super Hi-Vision recording of the Olympics, I was asked what it was, and why would anyone care.

    Good questions, so I went to find out.
