Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro Review

The Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2 Pro is a unique piece of work. Lenovo didn’t fall into the same trap many manufacturers make in creating tiny boosts for their devices each year, changing only base configurations. They didn’t say, hey, this YOGA Tablet is neat enough, let’s just give it a better display for the tail end of 2015. Instead they’ve … Continue reading

Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro Review

Finally, a truly great Windows laptop. Lenovo’s YOGA 3 Pro is thin, yet robust. It’s powerful enough to handle tasks like video processing and light gaming, yet its battery life is optimized to such a degree that I’m able to use it like I would my main work notebook. The Lenogo YOGA 3 Pro transforms between a notebook, a touch … Continue reading

Nexus Player Review – Android TV’s awkward debut

The living room has proved to be a challenge for Google. The company which has been so successful in dominating so many of the screens we interact with on a daily basis – our computers, phones, and tablets – has perversely struggled for that most traditional of displays, the humble TV. Google TV was flabby and confusing; the axe fell … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

DROID Turbo Review

This past week and a half we’ve been working with the DROID Turbo non-stop. With a body that replicates the popular DROID series from last year – this time in bright red – a massive battery, and specifications that match or surpass the Moto X 2014, what’s not to love? As it turns out, the DROID Turbo isn’t just all … Continue reading

HTC Desire EYE Review

The HTC Desire EYE seems to have one key point in its favor, at first – selfie power. But it’s a whole lot more than that. Instead of a smartphone that’s made for taking photos of yourself, the Desire EYE is a surprisingly well-rounded phone. And it’s not a mid-tier phone either – in fact it has many of the … Continue reading

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Review

This week we’ve had a look at what it means to be rolling with the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with a full Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade. This isn’t your everyday average upgrade – it’s not like we’re using the Nexus 9 that just happens to be branded by NVIDIA. Instead, this is the first non-Nexus tablet to receive the update, complete … Continue reading

HTC Re Review

So you’ve seen this little pipe of a camera from HTC called the Re, but you don’t know what to make of it. It’s a new idea. It’s a new execution. It’s not something your everyday average citizen is going to recognize. But that’s a good thing. The HTC Re doesn’t look like a camera – not a standard camera, … Continue reading

MOS Kick review: the perfect time-lapse companion

You might take a lot of pics with your phone, but do you take really good ones? Sometimes, things like a sunset or fast-moving clouds require a bit more patience than we’d like, should we want a really good time-lapse. Even if we just want to capture a moment in time, a shaky wrist can ruin the shot. The MOS … Continue reading
