Huawei Mate 10 Pro vs LG V30+: The weigh-in

If you’re in the market for a big, beautiful, and brand-spanking-new smartphone this summer, you have some obvious choices – the Apple iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, of course. But if none of those do the trick, you’ve got a couple more appealing options: the LG V30+ and the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. LG’s G6 mostly impressed us earlier this year, but it was ...[Read More]

Microsoft Xbox One X vs Sony PlayStation 4 Pro: Which is best?

No, it’s not yet time for the PlayStation 5 or the Xbox… Two? However, Sony and Microsoft aren’t content to let their four-year-old consoles linger as gaming PCs get cheaper and more powerful. Last year’s Xbox One S added 4K media support and upscaling for games, but it’s the brand new Xbox One X that truly elevates the gaming experience. With a huge processing boost within...[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]

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]

Huawei Mate 10 Pro vs Apple iPhone 8 Plus: the weigh-in

Android’s flagship pool is absolutely stocked with top-end competition right now, with the Samsung Galaxy S8 heading the pack – but here’s another phone you’ll want to keep an eye on. The Huawei Mate 10 Pro fits in well, with a taller-than-average screen that dominates the front of the phone, plus plenty of top-end tech within. But if you’re thinking about spending big on a...[Read More]

Motorola Moto Z2 Play – More than just a mid-ranger

The Motorola Moto Z was one of our favourite handsets of 2016, a premium, speedy modular phone that worked. The Hasselblad camera attachment was one of our favourite gizmos and, happily, it works just fine on the Moto Z2 Play as well. Which is a relief, because we don’t really want to have to buy the Moto Mods a second time. A fact which highlights the major failing of the Moto Z2 Play ̵...[Read More]

Huawei Mate 10 Pro vs Apple iPhone X: the weigh-in

If you’re looking for a phone with a large screen but a reasonably comfortable footprint in the palm of your hand, then you’ve got options: Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, for example, and the upcoming Google Pixel 2 XL, if you have the drive to buy from overseas. And here are two more on the horizon: Apple’s ultra-luxurious iPhone X, and Huawei’s newly-revealed Mate...[Read More]

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

Nobody is making stylish, high-end phones quite like Samsung right now, although Apple’s iPhone X will try 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 extra-tall screen trend and sheds q...[Read More]

Fitbit Ionic – A powerful fitness tracker surrounded by smartwatch scaffolding

How smart do you like your fitness trackers? If the answer is ‘not very’ then Fitbit has had you covered for a while with its merry band of clever, if not particularly connected, trackers. But now it’s gone the other way and made a proper frontman in the form of its first smartwatch, the Ionic. It’s a bold if somewhat belated move – rivals like the Apple Watch Series 3 and the forthcoming Samsung ...[Read More]

The ZTE Axon M is a smartphone packing dual 5.2in displays

We know that we’ve been keen on a folding display smartphone for a long time but this isn’t what we were expecting to see. ZTE’s newly-announced Axon M is set to arrive, in the States first before making it to the rest of the world, with dual 5.2in 1080p displays. The dual display setup might be folding but it’s hinged rather than using a flexible screen to create its effec...[Read More]
