Call of Duty: WWII – History repeats itself – and that’s no bad thing

Out with the preposterous sci-fi warfare, in with good old fashioned Nazi-killing. Having pushed the boundaries of armed conflict into outer space, the latest Call of Duty is a return to all the stuff that has made the FPS series such a blockbuster success. Heading straight back to WWII is a tricky move to get right, though. While the past few CoD games have leapt away from the well-trodden Allies...[Read More]

South Africa being SA, we’ve got a little wait ahead but it will be here before year’s end. Will it be worth the wait? Yes, because it’s still an Xbox One at heart, and it’ll work with the same games and peripherals as the original Xbox One and l...[Read More]

Huawei Mate 10 Pro – Big screen, battery, brain and small bezels equal massive success

Everyone knows there’s an AI apocalypse on the way – after all, no less an authority than Stephen Hawking says so. And when it does occur, we’ll have smartphones to blame. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro isn’t the first phone packed with seriously clever AI tech inside it, but it may be the smartest yet: a mobile that’s capable of recognising what you’re pointing your camera at and predicting which a...[Read More]

Huawei Mate 10 Pro vs Samsung Galaxy S8: The weigh-in

Nobody is making stylish, high-end phones quite like Samsung right now, although Apple’s iPhone X and Google’s Pixel 2 XL are trying mightily to take the crown away from the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. And here’s another big contender: Huawei’s Mate 10 Pro. Last year’s Mate 9 Pro looked strikingly like a Galaxy S7 Edge, but this year’s edition embraces the ext...[Read More]



Amazon Kindle Oasis (2017) – Waterproof and Bluetooth, ain’t that the truth

If you love reading – and we mean really, really love it – you could have done a lot worse than last year’s Kindle Oasis. Amazon’s most expensive e-reader was also its most portable, most pocket-friendly, and longest-lasting. We loved it. Now though, there’s a successor – and it’s somehow even better, despite putting on a few extra grams. With a bigger screen, bigger batter...[Read More]

Whether you’re keen on lobbing rockets at cocky invertebrates or revelling some gratis jump-scares, Sony’s November roster has you covered with gaming goodness...[Read More]

8 things we love about the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus – and 8 we don’t

Every year, a new set of iPhones rolls out. This year: we got the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, which look suspiciously like their predecessors. As ever, they’re good. But also, they can be bad. And we don’t mean that in a ‘good’ bad way. We’re going to go into more detail, with the online and magazine reviews, but that’s going to take some time as we get to proper grips with the phone. ...[Read More]

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 – Supermassive. Super-powered. Super niche

So here it is: the sequel you weren’t expecting to a smartphone that wouldn’t stop exploding. And yet Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 isn’t all that different from its pyromaniacal predecessor. A big, supercharged handset with a jaw-dropping display, it’s every bit the kick-ass flagship phablet you’d expect. The headline change for 2017? This Note really, really shouldn’t go ‘boom’ anytime soon. That’s wh...[Read More]

Which GoPro should you buy?

In a world where action lurks down every YouTube link, three Heroes just aren’t enough. No, when every leap, splash, crash and climb (no matter how insignificant or embarrassing) must be recorded in total clarity, a new Hero is needed. A Hero that will capture every concussion in 4K at 60fps, before automatically editing them into a fame-worthy compilation of pain to share with your burgeoning fan...[Read More]

The first 12 things you should do with your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus

The iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 are Apple’s most lavish iPhones yet, and along with iOS 11 make for a serious chunk of power in your palm. However, some of the really good stuff isn’t always easy to find – especially if you’re coming from an older version of iOS or (shudder) an Android phone. Here’s our guide, then, to a dozen things you really need to do, when getting your shiny new Ap...[Read More]
