Asus Transformer Book T200 review

asus-transformerbook-t200-8-650-80[1]
Asus’ T100 Transformer Book came out just over a year ago, offering a full Windows tablet experience that easily out-did failing Windows RT devices of the time. It has since been one of our favourite laptop / tablet hybrids to emerge, packing Intel’s new breed of Z-series Atom processors.

 

The newer and larger brother, the T200, keeps the things we liked about its fully-fledged Windows 8.1 predecessor, but packs a larger 11.6″ screen and faster processor, throwing in some extra ports and a handy 2.5″ drive bay into the keyboard dock, too.

Oppo N3 review

0
Oppo N3A few short months ago, Oppo was barely a blip on the international radar. After moving beyond the bounds of Blu-Ray players, it first garnered international attention with the Find 5 superphone.

 

At the time it was the first smartphone to launch with a 1080p screen onboard, beating the HTC One andSamsung Galaxy S4 to the punch, and gaining Oppo the attention it rightly deserved.

 

Fast forward to the latter months of 2013 and Oppo had introduced the Oppo N1: another flagship to take over from where the Find 5 left off. This time, the headline spec was the rotating camera, a feature not seen since the Nokia N90.

 

Its latest flagship the N3, takes queues from the N1 and enhances the camera’s rotational skills as well as bumping the other specifications all round.

Huawei Honor 3C review

Honor 3c
If you’d looked at the smartphones available on the market available 18 months ago, those with a minimal budget would have had a limited choice consisting of the highly-commended original Motorola Moto G, or a range of low-spec Android handsets from Huawei, Alcatel or Samsung.

 

Following the success of Motorola’s Google-backed budget blower, manufacturers have visibly stepped up their game in an attempt to claim a share of the lower end of the market; after all, not everyone has £500+ to blow on the latest iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

 

The Honor 3C offers mid-range specifications at a thoroughly budget price, and for that you get an 8GB smartphone with a wealth of features, including a quad-core processor, a 5-inch 294ppi HD screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720, 2GB of RAM, dual micro SIM capability and an 8MP camera.

iPad mini 3 vs iPad mini 2

0
iPadMini2-Press-05-970-80[1]It was only a few short weeks ago that Apple introduced us to its first ever ‘phablet’ – the oversized iPhone 6 Plus. With its 5.5-inch screen and tablet-alike features, some would argue that Apple has bitten into its own market by taking away many of the reasons that would make Apple fans want to own both an iPhone and a 7.9-inch iPad.

 

There are, of course, fans of Apple’s diminutive tablet out there that might currently own an ageing Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire HD, and who aren’t operating-system bias. For them, and Apple fans-alike, the lure of a shiny new tablet may be too tempting to avoid.

Arcam MiniBlink  (2)

What happens when you want to join the wireless revolution, but don’t want to ditch you old HiFi, and you want to have the highest quality of music along with it? This is where the Arcam MiniBlink comes into play. It allows you to turn that old, outdated audio kit into a modern audio receiver. Even most modern systems do not include a bluetooth receiver. So what makes the MiniBlink so special when you can get a reasonable one for only £20? Keep on reading to find out.

HannsG 27″ HS271HPB Review

0

HannsG HS271HPB (8)There was a time when I thought I’d never need more than a 21″ monitor, or a resolution higher than 1280 * 1024 for that matter.  These days, however, size really does matter – the PC has become an video hub, gaming machine, and an ultra-high definition adult entertainment center.  As such, you need a suitably large screen to enjoy all this eye-bleeding media on, and that’s why I am currently the proud owner of a 28″ Hanns.G 281D monitor.  Hanns.G’s latest big-screen monitor, comes in the form of the 27″, snappily-named HS271HPB, and I thought I’d give it a whirl to see how it compares to my ageing beast. Read on to find out how it fared.

Gigaset QV830 review

Gigaset-QV830%20(14)-650-80[1]I first heard of the Gigaset QV830 and its larger brother the QV1030 back inNovember 2013, after which they were promptly released in Germany just in time for Christmas for €199 (US$270, £165, €369 (US$502, £307, AU$550), respectively.

 

Now that the Gigaset QV830 has made its way over to the UK, with the lower starting price of £99 (US$168, AU$179), it looks like a serious budget tablet contender.

Oneplus One Review

2014-07-29 17.27.51At the dawn of the year, a newcomer emerged from the mist with wild claims about a new smartphone it was developing. It was to have specs of a flagship device, but at a bargain price – a pipe dream. Nobody would sell a high-end smartphone for near cost price, right? Though through trials and tribulations the young company released the OnePlus One. Let’s take a look at this curious Chinese phone, and the story behind it.

Nokia Lumia 930 Review

IMG_0048 copyIt has been three years since Nokia entered its Windows Phone partnership with Microsoft, and is just months since Microsoft bought the Finnish giant for about £4.6bn.

The Lumia 930 is the latest of these, and the first to feature the long-awaited 8.1 update. Read on to see if the software can do the hardware justice.

HTC One Mini 2 Review

HTCOneMini2 (4)Facing a steady drop in revenue in the wake of massive competition from the Samsung juggernaut, HTC went on the attack in 2013 with their new and improved HTC One. Not to be confused with the previous array of One phones from 2012; the One made a striking impression with its beautiful form and beefy internals, as well as some great additional features, including a beefed-up loudspeaker. Now that the second revision of the One -the M8- is here, it’s time to find out whether the One Mini 2 offers all the beastly features of its bigger brother at a reasonable size.

Edifier Extreme Connect Bluetooth Speaker Review

0

IMG_0020 copyI’ve tried my fair share of Bluetooth speakers over the last few years, and whilst some have been truly surprising, others have left a lot to be desired.  Edifier isn’t new to this end of the audio market, but with the Extreme Connect Bluetooth speaker, it has taken a stab at making a slab of audio for kids, party goers and those with a penchant for brightly coloured things.  Is it any good?
