Nexus 6 Review – You want to lick this Lollipop

Nexus 6 Review – You want to lick this Lollipop

A new Google smartphone is a big deal, and the Nexus 6 is a very big phone indeed. Largest so far of Google's collaborations with handset manufacturers, and first to see Motorola take the Nexus reins - ironically just as the two firms part company - it's a riff on this year's Moto X but with a new turn of speed and a crazy Quad HD display. It's also the launch vehicle for Android 5.0 Lollipop on phones, arguably the biggest thing to happen to the OS in many generations. So, with supplies still frustrating all but the best-timed of buyers, is the Nexus 6 the Android phone you want in your pocket?

Apple Watch pricing may range from $350 to over 10x that much

At no surprise to anyone, the least expensive version of the Apple Watch has been tipped to be the "Sport" version. Based on what we've seen of the device range so far, the Sport edition of the Apple Watch will be akin to the lower tiers of the iPhone.

Microsoft Band hands-on – Admirably Flexible Fitness

Microsoft Band hands-on – Admirably Flexible Fitness

Who would've thought it would be Microsoft that would embrace cross-platform wearables so thoroughly, and indeed first. Microsoft Band is, on the face of it, the company's play for the fitness and health market, trailing Android Wear to market but beating Apple Watch by a number of months. However, where Google and Apple's approaches are resolutely wedded to their own individual platforms, Microsoft has spread wide its arms and made Microsoft Band play nicely not only with Windows Phone but with Android and iPhone too, and you don't have to sacrifice 99-percent of the functionality in doing so. I strapped the rubberized, touchscreen-toting health band to my wrist to find out more.

iPad mini 3 Review – Refinement not Revolution

For many tablet fans, Apple's second-generation iPad mini hit the sweet spot. Keeping the bag- and hand-friendly design of the original iPad mini, but adding a Retina display, it replaced standalone ereaders and held the phablet fort until the iPhone 6 Plus arrived. Technology can't stand still, though, and so 2014 brings the iPad mini 3. With the changes far more moderate than the iPad Air 2, though, does the iPad mini 3's previous charm remain as strong? Read on for our full review.
