Xiaomi Mi Band Fitness Tracker
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 4:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Xiaomi is not a brand that most people in North America know, but that could be changing in the next few years. The Chinese company has really made a name for itself in its home market, becoming one of the top manufacturers of Android smartphones and tablets. The Mi Pad is a great tablet, even if it's a pretty blatant copy of the iPad. And then we've got the remarkably affordable Xiaomi Mi Band, a $20 fitness tracker that's arguably just as good as devices five times its price. Is it really all it's cracked up to be?"

HTC Desire 820 Smartphone Review
     Fri, May 01 2015 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phablet’ is a term thrown around a lot these days, with some quick to brand anything bigger than 5-inches a phablet. Well today we look at the HTC Desire 820, a 5.5-inch smartphone which definitely fits within the phablet trend. With an asking price of under £280, is it worth the cash?

OPPO R5 Smartphone Review
     Sun, Apr 26 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OPPO R5 was, until very recently, the slimmest smartphone in the world. Measuring just 4.85mm thick – it makes the iPhone 6 look chunky by comparison. That said, does the R5 sacrifice performance and usability for its sleek style? Today we see if the smartphone – priced at under £315 – is worth a look.

new Surface 3
     Wed, Apr 22 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week, we look at the new Surface 3 and a few other news items, and then we dive deep into PCIe SSDs. When we come up, we have a quick discussion of one of the first FreeSync displays.

Oppo R5 Review
     Tue, Apr 21 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Smartphone manufacturers are obsessed with thinness. Being the 'best at' this or 'most' that gives you bragging rights and that's what Chinese OEM Oppo appears to be after with the R5. At just 4.85mm thick, it's a pretty impressive form factor, though you'll have to compromise with a smaller battery, a pretty standard 1080p display, average camera and a mid-range SoC. Can the R5 still deliver a better experience over a thicker device with, potentially, better hardware?

Octa-Core Snapdragon, Boomsound Impress
     Sun, Apr 19 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Casually glancing at the One M9, you’d be forgiven for mistaking the handset for last year’s version. The 5-inch display size hasn’t changed, nor has HTC’s reliance on an all-aluminum and composite finish. The company’s design cues are now linked fairly tightly with the brand, much like Samsung has done with its Galaxy design and Apple with its iPhone - which in the One M9's case is a good thing. The real magic with the One M9 happens within the shell, however. This year’s model has Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit engine, the Snapdragon 810. That’s powering Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop) and a new 20-megapixel rear camera, combined with 3GB of RAM and HTC’s Sense...

low-cost Moto E smartphone
     Sun, Apr 19 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Bottom line, if you can live with the screen and camera the 2015 Moto E provides good performance and the latest version of Android at a price that makes it a compelling option for a budget smartphone. LTE and a quad-core SoC check the right boxes for a modern device, and to sweeten the deal Motorola's aggressive OTA updates have been keeping even budget models up to date with the latest versions of Android. Yes, the screen isn’t great and the camera is downright poor, but it's hard to argue against the value regardless of its shortcomings."

Blackview Breeze Smartphone Review
     Sat, Apr 18 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This model was mainly built for people with lower budgets, which do not have enough cash to invest in higher-specced models and Blackview has picked one of the mainstream SoCs (MT6582) of 2013 to equip it, which now also has sources for building Android 5.0 distributions.

Moto 360 Review: Android Wear-Powered
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:53A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not long ago, the battle for consumer dollars occurred on a field littered with ultralight notebooks. A few years later, that transitioned to smartphones and tablets. Today, the next major tussle is occurring on one’s wrist, in the red-hot "wearables" market in general. Motorola’s Moto 360 made waves by being the first major smartwatch to actually look like a watch - a real timepiece, not just a gadget. Most of its primary rivals are more akin to something Dick Tracy would wear, but Moto zigged when everyone else zagged. Instead of selling a computer with a band, the 360 is a timepiece that just so happens to run Android Wear. Despite being on the market for a few months now, the Moto 360 is still more interesting and dynamic than ever. A variety of bands are now available for the fashion conscious, and Android Wear 5.0 has retooled the user interface...

Asus ZenFone 5 LTE Smartphone
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 11:46A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we complete our look at the 2014 ZenFone range from ASUS. So far the other two handsets – 4 and 6-inch devices – have been very impressive and cost-effective. Will the 5-inch model, now available for under £190, continue this trend or will it disappoint?

Samsung Galaxy A5 Smartphone Review
     Tue, Mar 31 2015 | 11:23A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Galaxy A5 is a slim smartphone from Samsung, with a five-inch HD (1280 x 720) touchscreen, Android 4.4 "KitKat" operating system, and powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 CPU. It has 2 GiB of RAM and 16 GiB storage space, a 13 MP main camera, and a 5 MP frontal camera. Let's take a good look at it."
