Remix OS overview.

Mophie Juice Pack iPhone 6 Plus – Review

Battery cases and portable chargers are becoming ever more popular. Just look at EE, who had a million requests for their Power Bar scheme. I’ve been a fan of the Mophie Juice Packs since I bought my first one for the iPhone 4S. I’m a heavy user

Honor 4x – Video overview

I seem to be bumping into phone bloggers who are getting widely recognised by PR people, networks and manufacturers for adding a few YouTube videos and making a couple of posts on Facebook. No website. No slaving away for hours writing huge reviews. Just a quick video,

Olixar BoomBrick – Review

This light and portable bluetooth speaker is ideal for travel. It’s stylish small size doesn’t mean it’s not powerful. With a 6W output level it’s loud enough to provide ample sound in a variety of places. Surprisingly the 2 little 3W speakers can provide good bass thanks

Kinivo BTH240 Bluetooth over-ear headphones. Reviewed.

The people at Kinivo were going to send us a Bluetooth speaker to look at. It was meant to be the Kinivo BTX270 Wireless Bluetooth speaker. I’m sure it’s very good and that, but what we actually received was this, the BTH240. It is, as you can

Tech21 Patriot Case – Review

I think I have a fetish for cases, either that or I have just never managed to find the right one. I’m always swapping and changing. Now this is my next victim, the Tech21 Patriot Case. This is a rugged case for my iPhone 6 Plus. Tech21 assure

Remix Ultra Tablet – The unboxing

Today is the day people. The day where I can hopefully get rid of my need for a Windows PC forevermore (well at least out with work anyway). I have been lucky enough to get hold of a Remix Ultra tablet from Jide Technologies. These are the

Honor Holly – Review

To truly succeed in the budget phone market you have tick many boxes, you have to look good, you have to perform well, you have to have some features from phones two or three times the price and most importantly you have to be cheap. Companies like

Goospery Viva Case for Galaxy S5 – Reviewed

If you want to keep your Samsung Galaxy S5 in good condition, this Viva Window cover is worth a look. We’ve been using it on a Galaxy S5 and it sits over the battery cover – not replacing it as some do. This adds a small amount

HTC One M9 Review

Mobile World Congress is where most flagship devices get announced every year, and 2015 was no different. This year HTC arrived with an upgrade to their popular M8 phone which hopefully filled in the few missing pieces to make this the best phone they ever made. First of all

Edifier MP211 Bluetooth speakers review

This is a small and very portable Bluetooth speaker which will fit fairly easily into your pocket and very easily into the likes of a handbag or small bag. First up, the design makes it look like one large black paracetamol caplet but (in the case of

Ian is our go-to guy for the Bluetooth speakers, but recently I’ve had a few to play with and one of them is the ECOXGEAR ECOROX Rugged Bluetooth Speaker. The ruggedness of the speaker appealed to me, and I like to have things protected. The first thing

A week with the HTC One M9. Day four. The camera tech.

A lot was said about the quality of the new 20 megapixel rear shooter. There’s a raft of options including the ability to adjust the ISO, EV and white balance settings. Not only that, but if you dive into the camera settings further there’s a stack of
