    By 26 March 2014

    Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 review

    By 17 March 2014

    When it comes to Android tablets Samsung has every base covered in size terms. Or so we thought, as with the Galaxy NotePro 12.2 the company gets a little experimental, opting for a large scale 12.2-inch slate. We're already fans of earlier Note devices,...

    Samsung NX30 review

    By 18 February 2014

    The Samsung NX30 is the latest edition to the company's steadily evolving line of compact system cameras, assuming top-dog position and unseating the visually comparable NX20. Its headline spec 20.3 megapixel APS-C sensor might sound eerily familiar -...

    Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 review (2014 Edition)

    By 27 January 2014

    Samsung is doing a good job for many of its devices. The Note 3 is one of our favourite phones, and the Note 2 10.1 was a tablet that we expected not to like, but ended up adoring. A new year must bring a new Note, and that is the updated Galaxy Note...
