KnowRoaming on test – Cut your roaming costs dramatically

Picture the scene. You’re about to go abroad. You’ve got your passport, you’ve booked the hotel and the flight. What about your phone? Unless you’re lucky enough to be using a network like Three and going to one of the countries in their Feel At Home plan,

Edifier R1700BT Bluetooth speakers review

Holy hell. I think something just happened in the trouser department. These are Bluetooth speakers like I’ve never seen or heard before. I mean sure, you know deep down that the wood enclosing these speakers is 100% MDF, but it looks lovely and these speakers would sit

Pebble Time launches on Kickstarter

Today was a big day for Pebble. Just in case you have been living under a rock and dont know who Pebble are, they made the first truly usable Smartwatch that could work on both iOS and Android. That one was also funded through a Kickstarter project

Ceba Slim Power Bank – Review

For those who have been living under a rock for the last decade or so, I just need to bring you some breaking news. Smartphone and tablet batteries really aren’t as good as we’d like them to be. Right, now on with the show. This is yet

Kitvision Escape Action Camera Review.

Right let start with talking about the elephant in the room, the Kitvision Escape HD5W action camera, that I have been sent through to review, is the spitting image of the current class leader, but I’m not going to go pro there. Now that’s done…… The action camera

Gembonics 6000mAh External Battery Charger Review

When we get an external battery in for test it’s usually, well, a battery. Not much thought goes into the design of the thing usually and you basically just get a chunky phone battery cell wrapped in a case that matches the dimensions. Consider this though. This is

Avantek 4-Port USB Charger Review

It’s a problem I’ve battled for many years now and still haven’t really resolved. Cables, everywhere. Not only that, but I seem to have chargers everywhere too, and they’re all plugged in – all the time. There’s one in the bedroom, one in the lounge and a

Microsoft Universal Mobile Keyboard – Review

The Bluetooth keyboard market has taken off recently, with an influx of affordable Android and Windows tablets, along with the annual iterative updated iPads. Most people I know have a tablet of some sorts. Heck I even now one guy who asked me to fix his “Nexus”

ANNKE Sparkle SP1 IP Camera review

We’ve got ourselves another security camera here folks. Quick note before I start, this was once £319.99 but they’ve got it available on Amazon for just £49.99. That’s pretty cheap, and it’ll let you keep an eye on your house or office remotely using your phone. It’s

CarLock Review

Tracking your car is possible with just a smartphone. Various apps will let you do it, but it’s a matter of having a spare smartphone with a data plan and GPS, plus you have to leave it plugged into the 12v charger and that alone will probably

Reviveaphone Kit Review

That moment where you drop your prized possession into the toilet, bath or sink (really any receptacle that holds water) is cringe inducing. This phone, the one you have been coveting for nearly a year and have spent the best part of your wage check to buy

HTC RE – Review

Here it is then, the magical camera without a viewfinder. Well, not an on-board one at least. Strange thoughts went through my head when I unboxed this. Could I cope without having an onboard viewfinder or some sort of screen to show me instantly what my photo

Reviveaphone Splash Review

Have you ever caught yourself trying to hide out of the rain so that you can check something on your mobile? Don’t worry, we have all been there and if you are not lucky enough to own a flagship from Sony, Samsung or indeed Motorola then you

EnerPlex Packr Unpacked

I needed a new pack for Mobile World Congress. One that was going to hold a lot of gear. I started looking around online and, after a while, I came across a company called EnerPlex. They are an American company who make charging solutions for mobile devices

Boombox iMusic Pillow review

Remember that Boombox iMusic Pillow? We mentioned it last week and we love things like this. For a start it’s not like we’re talking about £600-worth of smartphone that needs to be fully explained in a 2000-word review. Oh no, this is a pillow with speakers in.

Nexus 9 Keyboard Folio Review

The Question: How do you make a lightweight and portable tablet productive? Well apart from adding the appropriate software like MS Office or Google Docs, the other way is to add a keyboard case/dock. That is exactly what I have done with the Nexus 9; I have

Kinivo BTE40 Stereo Bluetooth headphones review

You’ve got your favourite headphones and you don’t want to get rid of them. I understand that. However, you don’t want to constantly be shackled to your smartphone or tablet. It’s a pain isn’t it? Especially if you have a tablet or a phablet. Those things are

Arctic P614BT Bluetooth Headphones – Review

Headphones or earphones, which are best? Surely that’s one of the big unresolved questions in modern day life, I for one can’t decide which to go with and because of that I have piles of headphones and earphones at home. I’ve been hankering after a pair of

Rock Jaw Alfa Genius headphones – Reviewed

Headphones, we get a lot of them to review and we’ve had a couple sent in by Rock Jaw already. Here’s our look at the Arcana and the Hydra headphones. These Alfa Genius ones though, are quite different to any you’ve ever seen before because you can…

Encase Flexishield for Nexus 6

It’s case review time again. Now that I have got myself a shiny new Nexus 6 it would be silly not to keep it in a case and protect the phone in some way shape or form. This is where the Encase Flexisheild comes in. The case
