    JVC Picsio GC-FM1 camcorder review

    By 9 March 2010

    Looking like an accessory from a P Diddy video - before the recession prompted an abrupt halt to the flouting of bling - JVC's oddly named Picsio is outwardly set to stun with its glitzy pearl-like finish that is more night club than camera club. It's...

    Sony Ericsson U5i Vivaz review

    By 4 March 2010

    The Sony Ericsson Vivaz carries the moniker U5i, telling us that it comes from the same range as the Satio that we reviewed recently. It loses much of the bulk, however, bringing with it curvaceous "human design". But does this out-perform its bigger...

    Sony Ericsson U10i Aino review

    By 2 November 2009

    Back at Mobile World Congress 2009 Sony Ericsson introduced us to the concept of Entertainment Unlimited, typified here by the Aino. The phone drops to the Walkman and Cyber-shot branding, but punches hard in both the camera and multimedia sectors, including...

    Nokia N86 review

    By 7 July 2009

    While many of the latest smartphones will offer you the chance to customise with apps, surf the web with ease and basically do lots of funky things, the one thing they all have is a general disregard for the camera. It seems that if you want to take pictures...

    LG GD900 Crystal review

    By 1 July 2009

    Do you need an excuse to do something fancy? Let's take the GD900 from LG. It has a transparent keypad that slides out, adding to what is a full-touch device. Is this just LG showing off, or is this a phone you actually want to live with? Ignoring the...

    LG GC900 Viewty Smart review

    By 25 June 2009

    LG's Viewty returns, this time updated with an 8-megapixel sensor and a host of technologies to vie for the title of camera-phone king. But can LG fend off the likes of Samsung and Nokia and more critically, does the boost in pixels give you a better...

    Samsung i8910 HD review

    By 11 June 2009

    Samsung's Omnia HD was one of the darlings of Mobile World Congress in 2009. Since we first saw the phone it has been officially deemed the i8910 HD, although we suspect that many will continue with the Omnia HD moniker. The star of the i8910 is the massive...

    Sony Ericsson W995 review

    By 8 June 2009

    The Sony Ericsson W995 is a slider measuring 97.0 x 49.0 x 15.0mm, lovingly finished with a screen bezel and back in brushed metal, giving it an industrial look and feel. This isn't a minimalist handset by any measure: it has chrome detailing on the ends...

    LG GD900 Crystal First Look review

    By 2 June 2009

    There are times when companies make things because they can, rather than because there is a need to. So why has the LG GD900 Crystal handset got a slide-out transparent keypad? We had a play at the UK launch to try and answer that question ourselves....

    LG CG900 Viewty Smart - First Look review

    By 1 June 2009

    LG sold 7 million Viewty handsets, so they probably have an idea of how many Viewty Smarts they want to shift, as it steps in as a direct replacement of that handset. We got our hands on the new camera phone at the UK launch, a pre-production sample,...

    Sony Ericsson Aino - First Look review

    By 31 May 2009

    Wouldn't it be good if you could catch up on all the video content on your PS3, even when you aren't there? You've been able to do that for some time on Sony's PSP, but Sony Ericsson has now taken the Remote Play feature found in the PSP and brought it...

    Samsung S8300 Tocco Ultra Edition review

    By 23 April 2009

    It seems that everyone is talking about the Samsung Tocco Ultra Edition, a handset that offers a great range of features without stepping into the smartphone category. Maintaining Samsung's tried and tested slider format, it is fairly well removed from...

    Nikon Coolpix L19 camera review

    By 24 March 2009

    Nikon’s Life range of easy to use compacts has seen a revamp in recent months and the L19 sits mid-way within the range below the (yep, you guessed it) L20 and oddly, the range topping L100 but above the, wait for it … L18! The camera’s plastic...

    Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H10 digital camera review

    By 4 March 2009

    Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-H10 replaces the previous H3 model and as such sits snugly beneath the other "H" models in the range, which is topped by the DSC-H50 and now the latest and newest DSC-HX1. Key features include the 8.1-megapixel, 1/2.5-inch CCD,...

    LG KC780 mobile phone review

    By 17 December 2008

    There seems to be no shortage of options across LG’s mobile phone range. The KC780 gives you an 8-megapixel camera like the KC910 Renoir, but combines it with a conventional slider handset so you don’t have to deal with touchscreen if you don’t...
