Nubia Z11 review

We won’t blame you if you’ve never heard of Nubia. This particular Chinese smartphone brand has recently been making waves in its home territory, but until now hasn’t made a big push into the western hemisphere, though its parent company, ZTE, has some presence.

The Nubia Z11 is the brand’s first smartphone to launch worldwide, and touts a “bezel-less” design and camera technology which will supposedly give your DSLR a run for its money.

Announced at IFA 2016 in Berlin, the Z11 is a flagship that focuses firmly on design and photography, while also offering a hearty spec sheet, complete with up to 6GB of RAM, to ensure it keeps pace with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, LG G5 and HTC 10.

Though we have yet to fathom why anyone would need the option of 6GB of RAM in their phone in 2016, Nubia isn’t the only manufacturer to bump up the RAM, as the very similar OnePlus 3 also boasts that amount, and costs less too.

The Best LG G4 Accessories

The LG G4 is the Korean giant’s latest attempt at a top smartphone, which packs a stunning display, cracking camera and plenty of power.

 

The design is certainly alternative compared to the variety of black rectangles on the market, as you can have it in plastic or leather – plus the power and volume buttons are on the back. In short, the G4 takes many aspects we loved about the G3, and brings them bang up to date.

 

If you’ve decided this IS your handset of choice, then make sure you’re making the most of your new smartphone by lavishing it with a selection of the best LG G4 accessories available.

 

Whether you simply want to protect it with a hard-wearing case, keep it charged with a handy dock or give it even more storage capacity for storing games and media, there’s a wide range of kit available to match up with your LG G4.

Best Moto 360 Watch Straps

Moto 360 Watch Straps

If you’ve just picked yourself up one of Motorola’s second gen Moto 360 smartwatches, it’s essential to add a top-looking strap to make it your own.

 

The problem with most smartwatches is that while looks are improving all the time, the straps are often an afterthought. This was the case with the original Moto 360, which came with a rather lacklustre leather band.

 

Motorola has since upped its game with the Moto 360 2, which not only is available in three different sizes – 42mm and 46mm ‘mens’ options and a 42mm ‘womens’ female – but also now features stylish lugs either side of the circular body to easily attach one of the best Moto 360 watch straps.

Asus ZenPad S 8.0 review

Asus ZenPad S 8.0 review

Asus brought one of the first Android Honeycomb 3.0 tablets to the market in 2011 in the form of the EeePad Transformer, and has been plugging away at the tablet scene ever since in an effort to create the fabled ‘iPad killer’ so many Android-lovers are looking for.

 

While the company has continued to impress, with some serious improvements in its Transformer line of tablets, few tablets other than the Google-branded original Nexus 7 have managed to sell in significant numbers.

 

Asus has the Apple iPad Mini 4 firmly in its sights with its latest attempt, the Asus ZenPad S 8.0, which carries a low price tag of £169.99 ($199 or AU$279) – that’s almost half the price of the cheapest 7.9-inch tablet from Apple.

EE Rook review

EE Rook
 

The introduction of the BenQ-manufactured EE Harrier and EE Harrier Mini was the start of a new breed of own-branded handsets from Britain’s largest network, continuing the ornithological theme that started with the EE Kestrel, built by Huawei.

 


The EE Rook is the latest addition to the flock. This time made by ZTE, it’s a smartphone that fills the ultra-budget end of the spectrum, and yet still features stock Android Lollipop 5.1, 4G connectivity and a quad-core processor for less than the price of a meal for two.

 

This is clearly somewhat of a my first smartphone. But even casual users is search of a no-frills experience expect a phone that never lets them down – and is that really possible at this price?

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.

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.

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. Read on to find out.

Sony Xperia Z2 Review

IMG_0055 copySony surpassed many expectations with the original water-resistant Sony Xperia Z, but it was not without its issues – dodgy port covers, a lacklustre screen and a disappointing camera meant it wasn’t the Galaxy or iPhone rival that Sony had hoped.  A short year later and Sony launched the second take on their Xperia Z: the Z2. Have they managed to turn a good smartphone into a great smartphone? Read on to find out.

HTC Desire 300 Quick Review

0

IMG_0003 copyThe HTC One might have grabbed headlines as a classy flagship of HTC’s 2014 lineup, but there’s still plenty of space at the opposite end of the spectrum, where cheap Nokia Windows Phones and Motorola Es and Gs are doing incredibly well here in the UK. HTC’s latest affordable handset is the Desire 300, and it’s got all the specs you’d expect if you didn’t want to get the incredibly good value Moto G. Does the Desire 300 compete? Let’s take a closer look.

Archos GamePad 2 Review

0

IMG_0009In February 2013, Archos released the original Gamepad.  As the first gaming-centric Android tablet it received reasonable attention, but failed to inspire any real buzz around it.  This was mostly because it looked like a tablet with hastily added on gaming controls that were neither responsive, or pretty. Fast-forward a year and Archos hopes to produce a tablet that can be considered a proper gaming machine.  Did they succeed? Let’s find out.

Motorola Moto G Review

IMG_0002 copyMotorola was bought out by Lenovo in a surprise move that cost Google a few billion US $ earlier this year.  A strange move considering Motorola has started making some of the boldest moves since the company came out with the first so-called ‘Super-phone’, the Motorola Atrix in 2011. Boldest of all, the Motorola Moto G, the cheaper sibling to the flagship Moto X. It’s proven incredibly popular, but is it any good? Keep reading…

HTC One Max Review

0

IMG_0042 copyHTC’s 2013 One family was finished off with the announcement of the highly rumoured “phablet” (urgggh) in October last year – The HTC One Max.  Rocking a humongous 5.9″ display, this gadget really earns it’s name. It might not be equipped with a Stylus, and it’s not quite the Aluminium unibody of the original One, but if you’re Goliath-handed or are looking for a device to meet halfway between a phone and a tablet, then read on.
