Wileyfox Spark X – Review

There was a time, not too long ago, when phones costing £139.99 were best avoided. “Android landfill” they used to call them. Cheap devices with a questionable build quality, a dire camera and wonky screen resolutions. Here, for your money you’re getting a completely network-free device with an …

Moto X Force – Dropped from a drone

Sure, our Moto X Force review was pretty comprehensive, but the one thing we didn’t do was… drop it 900 feet from a drone. Yes, the phone does have a shatterproof screen, but surely it wouldn’t be able to survive that, would it? Plus, even if it did, …

4K Drone video shot using a smartphone

We’ve probably all seen those rather beautiful videos filmed using super-steady drones. However, if you want to step things up a bit and film in full 4K video you could have a slight problem. You might need to upgrade the camera hanging under the drone or perhaps get …
