Samsung’s Latest Tablet is Trying to Out Pro the iPad

Tablets are in a tough spot nowadays. Do you go cheap and just push out something that’s essentially a big phone, or do you up the price and go for extra functionality like stylus and keyboard support? Over the past few years, Samsung has tried to make the most of Android by making tablets that were closer to convertible laptops than standard slates. And for 2018, Samsung is going even bigger with the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4. Read More >>

Parrot’s New Foldable Drone Can Nail Some Crazy Shooting Angles

Yesterday, drone manufacturer Parrot announced the newest addition to its quadcopter family. The new model, the £630 Anafi, is seemingly Parrot’s answer to the folding DJI Mavic Air. It’s small, shoots 4K HDR video, and and can do a few cool tricks with its gimbal-mounted camera. But when it comes to additional features, it doesn’t really do much to threaten the entrenched competition. Read More >>

LG Is Stealing Its Own Thunder with the V35

The LG G7 isn’t even available yet (it officially goes on sale 31st May), but that hasn’t stopped LG from pushing out another big, expensive phone in the V35. Read More >>

LG G7 ThinQ Hands On: An Unremarkable Android Phone Joining a Sea of Unremarkable Android Phones

In 2018 it's hard to make your brand new smartphone stand out from the crowd. They all have basically the same features: big screens, a variety of biometric security solutions, fancy dual-lens cameras, AI of some sort, and more. The truth is, unless you have the words "iPhone" or "Samsung Galaxy" in your name, nobody really cares unless your device is dirt cheap or does something new and exciting. From what I've seen the LG G7 completely fails to draw attention to itself.

Comparing the Original 2004 GoPro to the Newest One Is Ridiculous, But We Did It Anyway

It’s been a wild ride for GoPro. It went from a niche camera company for surfers, to a media behemoth that was printing money, and now to a company undergoing large-scale layoffs, and publicly considering selling itself. Oof. Rather than piling on, we decided to flash back to happier times. So, I went on Amazon and bought the very first GoPro Hero camera for roughly £20, to see where it all began. Read More >>

Fitbit Did What You Wanted and Basically Made a Pebble

I haven’t asked for a lot from Fitbit over the years. Really only one thing. I would like another Pebble—a gorgeous smartwatch that lasts for days, has a healthy selection of apps, and isn’t sized to fit the wrist of a seven foot tall, 300-pound football player. Finally, I think, Fitbit might be giving me what I wanted. Read More >>

MWC 2018: Alexa and Cortana Will Duke It Out in the Update to the Best Laptop Under £1,200

Alexa already dominates a tonne of living rooms and kitchens thanks to Amazon’s huge line of Echo smart speakers. But there’s still one major category of devices Alexa has yet to conquer: PCs. However, at CES 2018, Amazon announced that Alexa would be making its way onto computers too. That brings us to now, at MWC 2018, where Lenovo is showing off its line of new Yoga 730 2-in-1s, which are going to be one of the first systems sporting Alexa’s new PC integration. Read More >>

MWC 2018: Sony’s New Buds Have Holes in Them for Your Own Good

How many times have you seen this: a guy or gal walking down the street with one earbud in, while the other hangs loose around their shoulders and neck like some ridiculous techie bolo tie. If you’re like me, it’s a daily occurrence, and a sad symptom caused by design that doesn’t quite work. Read More >>

MWC 2018: Huawei’s Matebook X Pro is a Slick Challenger to the Very Best Windows Laptops

In the laptop world, Dell’s XPS 13 gets a lot of credit for having a great design, excellent battery life and that nifty Infinity Edge display that started the trend of slimmer bezels on laptops. But what most people don’t know is that the laptop with the thinnest bezels in the world isn’t a Dell, it’s now a Huawei. Read More >>

Canon’s Next Flash Is Trying to Be Idiot-Proof

Using a flash is what separates photographers from people who got a good camera deal on Black Friday. Flash photography can be hard. There’s light theory and mathematics at play. Use a flash incorrectly and the images you’re making are often uglier than if you’d never used a flash at all. Canon’s hoping its new 470EX-AI flash unit changes that. Read More >>

MWC 2018: Sony is Getting Serious About Smartphones Again, and It’s Great

Not too long ago, Sony was a force (at least design-wise) in the smartphone world thanks to devices like the OG Xperia Z and the innovative Xperia Play. It was making cool looking phones while also pushing features like built-in water resistance that people now take for granted. But lately Sony’s phones have felt half-hearted. Read More >>

MWC 2018: Phones This Cheap Shouldn’t Look This Good

Look, it’s hard to give a shit about budget phones. They often sport uninspired designs, lack any sort of innovative features, and frequently cut corners to hit those low, low prices. And with previous phone names like Pixi, Pop and Idol, Alcatel’s previous phones seemed more concerned with the latest saccharine teen singing sensation than actual tech. Read More >>

But before than can happen, there’s some important prep that needs to get ironed out first. That’s whre the dual-screen ZTE Axon M comes in. Read More >>

Amazon’s Slick High-End Kindle Got a Serious Overhaul

When Amazon released the Kindle Oasis back in the spring of 2016, we said it was the best e-reader ever made. But that doesn’t mean it was perfect, and in the year and half since it came out, it’s become clear there was room for improvement. With a starting price of £270, the old Oasis was a bit pricey, it had a blocky (and now outdated) design and it was missing features like the adaptive back-lighting found on the even older Kindle Voyage. And, despite having a name that immediately conjures up visions of pools and fountains, the previous Oasis didn’t have any sort of water-resistance either. But now, Amazon is giving it another go with the simply (and annoyingly) named New Kindle Oasis, which looks to address all those shortcomings while also adding a number of new improvements too.

Tamagotchi is Back – And I Already Killed Mine

Just after 11 am on Saturday morning, I became the proud parent of my very first Tamagotchi, freshly hatched from its virtual egg. By yesterday afternoon it was dead; its passing a poignant reminder that the gadgets we adored as kids aren’t always as awesome 20 years later when we’re grownups. Read More >>
