HTC 7 Pro Review

The HTC 7 Pro is a handset which was announced back in October along with the other HTC Windows Phone 7 devices like the Mozart and HD7 but has only just been made available here in the UK recently and at present is the only Windows Phone 7 …

Samsung Galaxy Ace Review

Available on Three a lot of people have already confused this with the Samsung Galaxy S II. Sure, it’s not as powerful as the S II and the camera isn’t as high resolution but hey, this is a good looking phone with a lot to give. OK, first …

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro Review

The Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini Pro is a big name for a diddy smartphone. It’s not a whole lot different to the X10 Mini we reviewed before Christmas but the key difference here is the sliding QWERTY keyboard. The shape and size of the phone makes it …

LauncherPro – Android customisation done right

Ask any geek why Android is great and more often than not the answer will include the word open. One of Android’s biggest purported benefits is it’s openness, which we’re told leads to more innovation and greater customisability. Unfortunately, I’d argue that in practice it’s also a big …

The Italian Job

What a trip!  Well, as I promised a little while ago here is a review of some apps that I used while trying to navigate around Rome and Florence on a fantastic sightseeing trip.  To make it easier (and shorter) I will list the apps and what I …

Galaxy Nexus Review

Android is becoming an unstoppable force in the mobile industry. A wide range of manufacturers, each have their own spin on the OS, have cranked out device after device.  Google, however, has released the unbranded, vanilla version for a select few handsets which go under the brand ‘Nexus’. The Nexus …

HTC Desire Z Review

The HTC Desire Z is a rather interesting creation packing both a high resolution touch screen with Android and a slide out full QWERTY keyboard.  This is the handset known as the T-Mobile G2 over in America, not to be confused with the T-Mobile G2 here in the …

HTC Media Link Review

The HTC Media Link is a tiny box with two small outputs. What it does is fairly magical and quite cool. Plugging it together is simple enough. A familiar miniUSB charging plug goes into one hole, a miniHDMI plug in the other. After hooking the HDMI into your …

Motorola Defy Review

We’ve never had anything like this before. A phone that’s water-resistant, dust proof and scratch resistant. In theory this should be life-proof. Inside there’s Android 2.1 with the tweaked graphical user interface called “MOTOBLUR” to bring your social networks together and make navigation a little easier. A 5 …

LG Optimus One Review

We first saw the Optimus back in February at Mobile World Congress when it was called the GT540. We’ve also seen some rather excellent LG Optimus One hands-on videos, like this detailed LG Optimus Review. The LG Optimus One is an Android phone running 2.2 (FroYo) and is …

Windows Phone 7 Review

Windows Mobile 6.5. Oh, how we laughed. Remember the stylus? Remember the apps that looked nothing like the OS ? Heck, it didn’t matter too much and Windows Mobile was still king of the ring. Business users loved it, power users loved it. Then the iPhone turned up. …

HTC HD7

Well, this is a nice looking thing. The HTC HD7 burst onto the scene just a few weeks back and we were lucky enough to grab one on the day. UK network o2 have the exclusivity on this and, fair play to them, it’s one heck of a …

Brasso Gadgetcare

The Brasso Gadgetcare product is designed for cleaning and shining gadgets and removing those pesky fingerprints and marks. Sure, you could polish your phone with your sleave or rub against your shirt every once in a while, but the smudges and smears...

NoiseHush N650 Solar Bluetooth Car Kit

The NoiseHush N650 is a small solar-powered car kit. It charges the 100mAh battery from the light of the sun and, in theory, you can have "unlimited talk time" in direct sun light. When there's no sun you do get a charger in the shape of a cigarette...

Herotab M802 / aPad MX515

This device looks a lot like another very popular device. The design of it is, and let's be honest here, a clone of the Apple iPad.. give or take a few inches. Inside it runs Android 2.2 and there's the very latest Flash 10.1 and an 800MHz CPU. …

HTC 7 Mozart

This is a phone that, like the HTC Legend, is created from one single piece of aluminium. It makes the device sturdy, solid and cool to hold. The HTC 7 Mozart has hi-fi audio, with SRS WOW HD sound for an improved audio experience. The Zune music in...

Sony Ericsson LiveView

Sony Ericsson call this a "Phone Remote". Wearable on your wrist or on your clothes with the help of a clip, it communicates with your mobile and displays information from your phone. It'll also let you find your phone, control music and adjust volum...

HTC Wildfire

The HTC Wildfire. Let me crack open a beer and tell you a story. We were invited down to London for a preview of the Wildfire and, unless I'm completely wrong, it was met with a fairly mute reception from the press. Why? Well, it has roughly the …
