Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review

By

Samsung's Galaxy Note has always been one of the company's more interesting products. It's the one that leads rather than follows the lead of another phone manufacturer. In many ways, it's the handset that proves Samsung can have great ideas that show... >>

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 hands-on: Watch our 4K video sample

By

We've had the new Samsung Galaxy Note since Wednesday morning, and we're right in the middle of testing and reviewing, so expect to see our cogent thoughts on Monday. But for now, how about we take a look at one of the really cool features together, namely... >>

4G speed testing - Britain doing surprisingly well for mobile broadband

4G speed testing - Britain doing surprisingly well for mobile broadband

By

Mobile coverage is the cause of a lot of arguments. From couples moaning at each other for not answering the phone, to a lack of internet access in locations in which you spend a lot of time. But, the big problem is, you never know until it's too late... >>

Doom Piano hands-on video: We play Doom. On a piano

By

We get to see some cool stuff here at Pocket-lint, and the Doom Piano was no exception. What, you might ask, is a "Doom Piano". It certainly sounds foreboding, but perhaps it's just a depressing bit of music. Well, no, it's not, it's a hacked musical... >>

Denon AH-D340 over-ear headphones review

By

Denon has a good range of headphones. No matter what you're looking to spend, the firm has something that will fit, and we're honestly yet to find a pair that don't sound great - even at the lower end of the price range. The AH-D340 over-ears are no exception.We... >>

iPhone 5S and 5C launch day: Pictures from the Apple Store London queue

By

It's that day again, the masses have come out to queue for the new iPhone, and we, the press have queued to take photos of them queueing. So we ask you: who is more crazy? The queuers, or the queuers who queue to photograph the queuers. It was all pretty... >>

Xbox One hands-on video: 360 vs The One

By

As excited as we are about the Xbox One, we can't help but feel somewhat sad, because the console that has served us (mostly) brilliantly for the past eight years - one console lost to the red ring - and we're going to miss it. So, while we had our non-working... >>

Arcam rBlink review

By

There was a time when sending audio via Bluetooth was something audiophiles would just not do. Indeed, perhaps many of them still wouldn't, but you can tell the tide is turning when Arcam - the company well known for its multimedia prowess - jumps on... >>

Sony PS4 hands-on pictures and video

Sony PS4 hands-on pictures and video

By

We'll be 100 per cent honest, this is not a real PS4 you're looking at. It's an empty shell - well, nearly - that is used by magazines and websites to get photos of the console before the real hardware is ready. While that means we can't do much reviewing,... >>

LG G2 review

By

If LG is going to make a success of its premier G2 smartphone, complete with 5.2-inch screen, it's going to need to battle it out hard with Samsung, Apple and Sony while trying not to make the same mistakes as HTC - like not spending enough on good quality... >>

Huawei Ascend P6

By

When it comes to consumer-focused phones, things take one of two directions: dull and functional, or pretty and powerful. The Huawei P6 falls into the latter category. It's a phone that takes design cues from the iPhone, with a metal bezel around the... >>

Vacion CineTrack Pro camera slider

By

Look around online and watch some video, it won't take long for you to notice that production values don't rely on hand-held gear. And that's where the Vacion CineTrack Pro comes in: it's a camera "slider" for smaller scale gear - such as phone cameras,... >>

Pocket-lint explains NFC

Pocket-lint explains NFC

By

To many, NFC is something they may have heard of, but perhaps not something they really understand, or feel like they need. In this video, we try to explain what it is, how it can work and the benefits it might offer as well as the downsides. For more... >>

LG G2 in-depth hands-on video

By

LG has, for some time, been making rather nice phones that have been largely ignored by everyone. We loved the Optimus 2X and thought it was one of the smarter additions to the Android phone world that we'd seen. It was only with the Nexus 4 that the... >>

Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3

By

The reaction when you show the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 to someone is usually comical. It is, in anyone's book, a massive phone. All 6.3-inches of that screen. Some people don't even know it's a phone until you point out that it has an earpiece and show... >>

Xbox One hands-on video: Meet the new controller

You could argue until the sun goes down and the cows come home about which console controller is the best. What is hard to argue with, is that the Xbox 360's controller is an extremely capable device. It suits larger hands well, it's comfortable and feels... >>

Xbox One hands-on video: We examine the hardware

By

There aren't any fully-working Xbox One consoles for review just yet, we're a while off that, but Microsoft did let us get some time with a "non-working" sample. Although, we have a feeling that this console would have worked if we'd had a power adaptor... >>

Welcome to Pocket-lint video: Reviews, features, tips and more

You might not have seen much video on Pocket-lint recently, but that's about to change. There's no point in just doing what everyone else does, however, so we wanted to launch with something that's a bit different. The first thing you'll start to see... >>

Archos 50 Platinum review

By

The Archos 50 Platinum is really a phone for those who need or want access to dual-SIM card functionality - a rare thing in the UK. Usually this would be business users, or those who travel a lot. Now that doesn't sound typical of Archos, the company... >>

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini review

There's a division in the world of smartphones. There are phones that are normal-sized and phones that are super-sized. You will like one type or the other, more than likely, and we naturally seem to fall into the latter, rather liking the bigger phones... >>

Sony SRS-BTX500 bluetooth speaker review

Bluetooth speakers are the new headphones. We don't mean literally, and please don't start taking them on the bus with you, but they are an area where lots of companies see lots of chances to make money. And like headphones, these aren't £50 accessories... >>

App of the day: Flight Finder review (iPhone)

Until someone invents teleportation, or Elon Musk works out how to build those fancy pneumatic tubes he's decided will be the future of global travel, we're stuck using planes. Although it's not really aircraft that are the problem, it's airports. These... >>

Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 11S review

We're starting to get used to touchscreen laptops. At first, the idea was a bit foreign to us, and didn't feel like something we'd use, but now there are dozens of touchscreen Windows-based laptops available, we are actually finding them quite useful.... >>

Waterproof your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S

Accidents are inevitable, and when an accident befalls a mobile phone, there's a good chance it will involve water. For the most part, modern phones handle a bit of damp quite well; there's never much trauma if you're out in the rain for a bit. But when... >>

Parrot AR Drone 2.0 Power Edition review

Sometimes technology scares even us. And that's like an arachnologist being afraid of a particularly big spider. But even so, there are some things about technology that are creepy. Take for example that walking military cow thing the Americans have developed.... >>
