    XSories Weye Feye video review

    By 15 October 2013

    Wi-Fi control for SLRs is not that common, and the official tools are often expensive, so why not consider the XSories Weye Feye, a remote control for SLRs that enables a lot of features that wouldn't be possible on most cameras. For a start, there's...

    Panasonic TX-P60ZT65B 60-inch plasma TV review

    By 11 October 2013

    People who know about TVs, and have tested lots of them - as we have - will almost universally agree that plasma TVs are amazing. We wouldn't discount LCD as a display technology, but for the absolute best picture quality you really can't beat a plasma....

    If you're the owner of a digital SLR, then the XSories Weye Feye may very well be something you're interested in. Its skill, is taking a live feed from your camera, and sending it, over Wi-Fi (hence the name) to your phone or tablet.  This means you...

    Samsung Galaxy Gear video review

    By 4 October 2013

    We love the fact that Samsung has created a smartwatch that looks this good, with this much potential so quickly. And, for the most part, we love the watch, but it's not without its problems. In this video, we look at a selection of the features, and...

    Sony Xperia Z1 review video

    By 4 October 2013

    The Sony Xperia Z1 is an interesting phone. There's lots to like, and some stuff we weren't crazy about at all. But we applaud Sony for its build quality, design and trying to do something new and interesting with its phones.  We have a much more detailed...

    Samsung Galaxy Gear review

    By 4 October 2013

    Some people think that the Galaxy Gear is a response to Apple's rumoured iWatch, which has yet to materialise. But the fact is, Samsung follows Sony in this interesting little market, and while we found the Sony watch interesting, it doesn't offer a massive...

    Western Digital MyCloud NAS drives: Cloudy with a chance of 4TB of storage

    By 2 October 2013

    Cloud storage is expensive, especially when you're talking about using it for 4TB of data. So Western Digital wants to sell you a cloud all of your own, for a one-off price and no monthly subscription. It's a NAS drive, like Western Digital's other devices,...

    Having trouble with the handwriting recognition on your Samsung Galaxy Note 3? Here's how to fix it

    By 2 October 2013

    When we reviewed the Note 3, we noticed that the handwriting recognition was broken. It had been working perfectly when we first started using the phone, but then it randomly refused to turn our handwriting into proper text. A quick search online turned...

    Samsung Galaxy Note 3 review

    By 1 October 2013

    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...

    Elgato EyeTV Mobile video review

    By 30 September 2013

    We took a look at Elgato's latest EyeTV. This time, the cunning company has created a little Freeview receiver that connects into your iPhone 5, 5C or 5S Lightning port and allows you to watch live TV on the go. Of course, you'll need a good signal, but...

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

    By 27 September 2013

    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

    By 27 September 2013

    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 27 September 2013

    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 27 September 2013

    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....

    By 26 September 2013

    Samsung's Galaxy Gear was supposed to be a response to Apple's iWatch, although presumably Samsung would argue it has been thinking about this for a while. But whatever the provinanance of it, as a product, we're starting to see its value. Sure, at £300...

    We got to play with the all-new Galaxy Note 3 after the device officially launched last night at a fancy event in London. We'll be reviewing the phone properly over the next few days, but sufficed to say that we're excited, and impressed by what we've...

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

    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 19 September 2013

    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...

    By 19 September 2013

    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...

    By 17 September 2013

    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,...

    By 13 September 2013

    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...
