Hopsy SUB Compact Tap Review: Mini beer keg machine in effect

Over the last couple weeks we've had a Hopsy SUB Compact Tap on the review bench, and it's been pouring.

Black Shark 2 Review: The new mid-tier ‘gaming phone’ master

The Black Shark 2 is a gaming phone made by a Xiaomi associated brand. This device is marketed as a 'gaming phone' which means, here, that it's able to play even the most daunting and graphics-intensive mobile games with relative ease - AND that it has bright, shiny lights.
