Lumia 950 Review part I: Continuum desktop over “phone”

Lumia 950 Review part I: Continuum desktop over “phone”

Today we're having our first look at the Microsoft Lumia 950 on the review bench, showing you just one - perhaps the most compelling - feature of the bunch: Continuum. When Microsoft first created Windows Phone, it wasn't any secret that they wanted the software to look and feel like a mobile version of what was on the way for their desktop operating system. Almost as if desktop begat mobile. Now, several years down the line, Microsoft attempts to tie the two together implicitly with a feature called Continuum.

LG V10 Review Part II: what no other phone has

LG V10 Review Part II: what no other phone has

Certainly there have been devices that've had second displays in the past - everything from the Kyocera Echo to the lesser-known Samsung Doubletime. What's been missing from this equation hasn't been the hardware, but the skillfully implemented purpose achieved. In the LG V10, you've got a second display that shows you the time. It'll show you some other things, too, but the second screen shows you the time - and, most important of all - it shows you this information without giving your battery a hit.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 Review or: why it’s still the best

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 Review or: why it’s still the best

Today we're going to take a quick look at the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 and discuss why this device is the best tablet that money can buy. When we had a look at the original NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet, it was very apparent that NVIDIA's tablet-making opponents were going to have a tough time competing with the features and overall quality of this top-notch piece of equipment. One year later and not one tablet can hold a flame to the SHIELD for its combination of quality and price. And now it's cheaper than it was before. What's going on here, you might ask?

Six Star Wars films have been re-released in Blu-ray form in two editions, one of which is the Steelbook set we're reviewing today.

BlackBerry PRIV Review Part I: or why you might want this

BlackBerry PRIV Review Part I: or why you might want this

Hello there BlackBerry users, and welcome back! It's been quite a while since we've had a review of BB device like the BlackBerry Priv - one that's a real competitor on the open marketplace. One that feels like BlackBerry is confident in the product its delivering. And why would you want a device like this? An Android device with a push-out physical keys keyboard? Because you've always trusted the BlackBerry brand, and you always will. Just having the brand name there staring you in the face - and having the three volume button combo available - that'll get you every time.

Tstand Review: a reimagining of tablet holding

Tstand Review: a reimagining of tablet holding

This week we've been working with the Tstand, a tablet holder that'll allow you to use your tablet without cranking your neck or your knees. It's big. There's no denying that this stand isn't going to fit into your standard iPad sleeve - but at W 9.5” x L 10.25” x H 2.25 it's also not so large that it won't fit into your 13-inch notebook sleeve. The version we're working with is made mainly of ABS plastic, with silicone rubber bumpers to hold the tablet in place. This stand may look strange, but it might also be the tablet companion you didn't know you needed.

Apple Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2 Review

Apple Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2 Review

Bye bye batteries. Apple's trio of peripherals - the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 - have had a revamp, borrowing convenience tech from the iPhone. Most noticeable is the move away from user-replaceable batteries, with the three devices all getting li-ion packs just as you'd find squeezed into the narrow frame of the iPhone 6s. That's not the only change, mind, though the extent to which your fingers will be happy will depend on how well you got on with the old designs.

2015 Chrysler 300S Review

2015 Chrysler 300S Review

The first Chrysler 300 was a near-perfect expression of stereotypical Americana. Big, blunt-nosed, and aggressive, its high shoulder-line and crisp edges were 60s muscle on a modern forecourt; think Felix Leiter and his CIA issue suit in the classic Bond films of the sixties.

Breville Grind Control Review – Smarter Coffee

Breville Grind Control Review – Smarter Coffee

Coffee is a serious matter, and a lot of what you get in the cup is about timing. Breville's Grind Control brewer may not have the steaming bells and whistles of an espresso machine, but it proves that drip coffee needn't be dull - or anything other than delicious. It's also the first full-sized brewer I've seen that's just as happy preparing coffee for one cup as it is for twelve.

Fallout 4 Review

Fallout 4 Review

America is an irradiated wasteland. Your environment in Fallout 4 is what Judge Dredd might refer to as the "Cursed Earth" part of North America. In it, your alternate reality is littered with extravagant industrial designs and the white bread attitudes of the 40's and 50's dashed into desolation and dreariness. You play the part of yourself in a third- or first-person perspective, tossed into a terrible, terrible place. You will take part in assuring the survival of the human race with a combination of attribute selections, the collecting of helpful materials, murdering mutants, and keeping your chin up!

Amazon Fire TV 2 Review (2015)

Amazon Fire TV 2 Review (2015)

The Amazon Fire TV is aimed at Amazon Prime members and prospective Prime members - if that's not you, be wary. If you're thinking of purchasing this device with the intent of making it your sole Smart TV controller, you're going to want to be aware of a few things, the first of which is its extreme similarity to its predecessor. We're looking at the 2015 edition of the Amazon Fire TV - this is the version you'll be able to buy from Amazon now, while the previous generation will most likely be sold only by 3rd-party retailers with clearly marked signs and major discounts.

Xbox One Elite Controller Review

Xbox One Elite Controller Review

It's been several weeks since I first laid hands on the Xbox One Elite Controller. I've come to the following conclusion: I've never reviewed a device that's so unnecessary and yet so completely worth the cash it costs at the same time. "Oh god," you might say, "I could have bought myself a whole month's worth of pizza with the money I spent on this controller." Not long after, you might find yourself saying "Oh my goodness I can't believe I ever used a controller other than this one... it's so good, and feels so right."
