OnePlus 2 hands-on – The Android wild-card

OnePlus 2 hands-on – The Android wild-card

Seldom are the life-lessons so clear when you launch a follow-up product, like the new OnePlus 2 Android smartphone. Born of a desire to cater to the whims of the Android enthusiast, the requests were simple: they wanted power, they wanted affordability, and they wanted it right now. The original OnePlus One succeeded on the first two of those counts but notoriously botched the third. Now, still bearing a near-astonishing SIM-free, unlocked price tag - starting at $329 - but brought up to speed with 2015's finest, the OnePlus 2 is aiming for the hat trick. I caught up with OnePlus to see what's new.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Review

Today we review the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active from AT&T. This device takes the innards of the Galaxy S6, expanding the exterior bits to make a device that's resistant to the elements as well as shock. You can drop this one. While the original Galaxy "Active" device wasn't quite as resistant to the one truest danger of all, dropping the darned thing, here we've been given a reprieve. And a good sign for the future. This device has everything the Galaxy S6 has, and more - a bigger battery too.

OS X El Capitan Preview – Ahoy there, captain!

OS X El Capitan Preview – Ahoy there, captain!

OS X El Capitan isn’t a big of an overhaul update as Yosemite, but there are plenty of new features and design elements that keep a smile on my face. There’s a lot to be said for “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it” and that’s exactly what Apple has done. In El Capitan, it’s all about performance and experience, and that could pay real dividends not only for power-users, but for mainstream users wanting to squeeze the most out of their Mac.

As WWDC ends, the mood in the trenches is neighborly

As WWDC ends, the mood in the trenches is neighborly

Apple’s WWDC is over for another year, and as the dust settles on the iOS 9, Apple Music, and OS X El Capitan launch, it’s a chance to reflect on five days of sessions. It’s hard to gauge the tone of a week-long developer event from a fast-paced keynote - even with an Apple Music section which went on too long, and which several developers I spoke to suspected was padded to fill up space originally intended for an Apple TV SDK announcement. If there can be such a thing as an overarching theme, though, it felt like it might be harmonious co-existence.

Kingston microDuo 3C USB-C Review – One drive, Two plugs

Kingston microDuo 3C USB-C Review – One drive, Two plugs

One day the tech world will have embraced the USB-C connector - until then, we’re reliant on devices like Kingston’s DataTraveler microDuo 3C USB Flash drive to bridge old and new. The double-sided thumb drive sandwiches between 16GB and 64GB of storage in-between a pair of plugs: a regular USB 3.1 on one end, and a USB-C 3.1 on the other. As a new MacBook user, I’m understandably curious about anything that works around the ultraportable’s notorious lack of ports: read on for my review.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge Review

Samsung has a lackluster track record making flagship smartphones with serious lust-appeal. Its plastic-bodied Galaxy range was the Camry trying to play in Mercedes and Audi territory, earnestly ticking the boxes on the spec sheet, but failing to grasp that owners care about a sense of prestige as much they do a roster of the latest functionality. The Samsung Galaxy S6 and its flashy Galaxy S6 edge sibling are a lesson hard-learned, then, with both patchy sales and increasingly vocal criticism in 2014 demanding changes be made. 2015 might well be the fiercest year in phone tech yet; these two are evidence of Samsung's A-game.

Hail the $149 Chromebook: Haier and Hisense go cheap

Hail the $149 Chromebook: Haier and Hisense go cheap

Chrome OS has arguably always been best at its very cheapest, and now Hisense and Haier are looking to drive the cost of cloud-centric computing even lower, with a pair of $149 Chromebooks. Targeting not only budget-conscious families, schools, and businesses, but developing markets keen to get online, the two laptops each run Chrome OS on Rockchip's 3288 quadcore chipset. And, while they may be a world away from the Pixel in price, Google insists the recently-updated premium Chromebook had a hand in the design of the budget duo.

A “digital Dark Age” is coming, warns father of the internet

A “digital Dark Age” is coming, warns father of the internet

When the "father of the internet" says you should worry about digital ephemerality, it's probably time to pay attention. Vint Cerf, currently a VP at Google but better known as one of the men behind the creation of the internet, made the ominous prediction that we face a "digital Dark Age" at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, pointing out the rapid pace of development meant that there was a strong possibility that digital files - from family photos, though vital documents, and more - could be left behind unreadable.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Review: Bigger is Better

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Review: Bigger is Better

Apple promised us something big, and it delivered both metaphorically and literally. The iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus take Apple's flagship smartphone in new directions, finally bowing to consumer demand for larger handsets. These aren't just your old iPhone made bigger, however: a combination of broad hardware improvements and iOS 8 makes sure of that. Question is, does bigger mean better, or has Apple lost its legendary ease of use in the process? Read on for my full review.

Microsoft tips police on OneDrive illegal photo offender

Microsoft tips police on OneDrive illegal photo offender

Google isn't the only company turning evidence of child pornography over to the authorities, with Microsoft tipping police in Pennsylvania on a OneDrive user's illegal material in the cloud. Two images were spotted by Microsoft's automated content tracking tools, PhotoDNA, which maintain a specific watch for offensive photos of children, and led to the man being arrested at the end of July.

Amazon Fire Phone review: The shopper’s smartphone

Amazon Fire Phone review: The shopper’s smartphone

When Amazon wades into a new segment, competitors take note, and few devices have been so nervously anticipated as the Fire Phone. Amazon's first smartphone doesn't just put Prime in your pocket, it also pushes the limits of UI, with its quartet of Dynamic Perspective cameras, and computational photography, with Firefly. Ambitious, then, but Jeff Bezos & Co. have seldom lacked that. Question is, does the Fire Phone deserve to be the hottest handset in town?
