Android 5.0 Lollipop review: Sweet sweet Android refinement

By 17 December 2014

Android 5.0 Lollipop made its debut on the Nexus 9, Google's new tablet, and the Nexus 6, its latest smartphone. With Android 5.0 comes a range of changes that feel like a repositioning of Android, rather than a huge bump in forward-facing features. We've... >>

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review: The edge of excellence

By 16 December 2014

When we first saw the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge we thought of it as a design showcase; a "look at what we can do" smartphone with greater precedence given to its show-off factor than to usability. Why else have a modified Galaxy Note 4 with a single curved... >>

Nexus 6 review: Highly accomplished, but a bit of a handful

By 12 December 2014

There's a certain mystique surrounding Nexus devices, a certain je ne sais quoi that often sees the Nexus elevated to the status of the Android Supreme Being. Previous generations of Nexus smartphones and tablets have always brought bang for your buck:... >>

YotaPhone 2 review: Dual-screen phone will split the crowd

By 3 December 2014

The idea of a dual-screen smartphone might sound as useful as a sixth toe, and when Russian company YotaPhone launched its device of the same name it didn't make us realise what we were missing. Design quirks, usage irks - it just didn't formulate into... >>

Nokia Lumia 735 review: Just don't call it a selfie phone

By 25 November 2014

Nokia Lumia. Say goodbye to that phrase, as this is the last Lumia device that we'll review carrying the Nokia name. With the move of Nokia Lumia devices to Microsoft Devices, the Nokia Lumia 735 the last in its line. Pitched as a selfie phone during... >>

Acer Liquid Jade review: Functional but not fantastic

By 25 November 2014

The sub-£250 end of the smartphone market is a like a big apple pie that every manufacturer wants a slice of. But you can only carve that pie up so many ways. The Motorola Moto G has been the model most greedily consumed for a while but there are forkfuls... >>

HTC Desire Eye review: A real eye-opener

By 18 November 2014

The HTC Desire Eye is an odd device. Its headline feature is the 13-megapixel front-facing camera, which - let's get straight to it - is a little extreme. That's paired with a dual-tone front-facing flash too, so on paper it out-specs rival handsets easily.... >>

Nexus 6: Google's pure Android phablet (hands-on)

By 12 November 2014

The Nexus 6 has been an elusive beast in the UK. Although it's not uncommon for Nexus devices to be a little behind the US, the lack of Nexus 6 chatter so far has been almost disquieting. Coming to you courtesy of Carphone Warehouse - who showed off the... >>

LG G3 S review: Moderate mid-ranger

By 12 November 2014

LG has enjoyed plenty of success with its flagship smartphones of late, and the LG G3 S wants to capitalise on this, offering a mini take on flagship design. In doing so you get a device that, like the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini or the HTC One mini 2, mimics... >>
