Driveclub review

Driveclub was pegged as one of the big PlayStation 4 launch exclusives: a slick, social sim-lite racer that would show off the new platform’s myriad enhancements. But then it was delayed just weeks before release. Now, ne...

Forza Horizon 2 review

After initial concerns that it would dilute the hardcore spirit of the game too much, we unexpectedly fell head over heels with the original Forza Horizon on Xbox 360. That meant expectations were high for the sequel, particula...


Nokia Lumia 930 review

If you think the new Nokia Lumia 930 looks somewhat familiar, don’t worry. The Lumia Icon, exclusive to the Verizon network in the US, shares most of its DNA with the Lumia 930, but there are a number of key differences – a...


Review: The Galaxy K Zoom 10x optical zoom camera hopes to send your compact to the scrapheap

If you regularly leave home laden with a phone and a camera, the Galaxy K Zoom demands your attention. This mash-up of a smartphone and snapper combines the high-end specs and build quality of the Samsung Galaxy series with a r...


Review: Can Huawei’s Ascend P7 tempt you away from the usual smartphone suspects?

‘Thin’ is important. If you’re not a size zero, you are a zero, folks. It’s the sort of ideology you see in creepy movies about ballet dancers, but it could almost be the credo of the Huawei Ascend P7. It’s one of the...

Xiaomi Redmi Main

Review: Xiaomi Redmi is the world’s best, most affordable smartphone ever

You can be forgiven for having never heard of Xiaomi before, but this Chinese upstart could well be the next smartphone superpower. Hugo Barra certainly thinks so - he left his lofty position as VP of the Android platform at ...


Review: Jolla, the best smartphone you’ve never heard of

Samsung, Apple, HTC. We troll and snipe over tiny differences between top-tier phones. We even get into fisticuffs over these handset heartthrobs. But the fact is the Ones,Z1s and S4s of this world are actually very simil...


Review: The HTC One M8 is the best phone in the world (or is it?)

If you want an action cam, you buy a GoPro, right? The undisputed star of extreme video recording, the little white, silver or black box has become as common a slope-side sight as unnecessary facial hair. But lately, young ups...


Canon PowerShot G16 review

Evolving from the G15 with even faster autofocus, a smarter brain and Wi-Fi, the Canon G16 is one small step, but when you’re already out in front that can be all you need. IS THIS FISH TOO BIG? The G16 is a fish in a p...


Sony Xperia Z Ultra review

Jack of all trades, but master of none. That’s the danger that awaits the Xperia Z Ultra – a smartphone so huge, it doubles up as a mini tablet. Can it really fill the roll of two devices? Is it powerful enough to cope?...


Samsung Galaxy Note PRO 12.2 review

You heard it here first – the tray-blets are coming. Samsung’s massive slab of Galaxy NotePRO has a 12.2in display – and while that might not sound like much more than its regular-sized Note 10.1 tablet, in real ...
