Sony’s latest smartwatch aims to be a notification device above all else. No camera, no speaker, no microphone – it’s no Galaxy Gear, nor does it want to be. That simple approach results in a smart, focused and genuinely useful little piece of weara...
After over a month of rumours which revealed almost everything about the device, from design to specifications, Google's worst kept secret of all time is finally here. The Nexus 5 is officially official, and it's available in Australia immediately.
The Sony Xperia Z1 boasts an impressive camera, a waterproof body and good build quality, but it has poor ergonomics and a display with mediocre viewing angles.
Most of the world's media attention has been focussed on the Lumia 2520 tablet and Lumia 1520 smartphone, but Nokia has also unveiled the Lumia 1320. Don't worry, you're not the only one who gets confused with all these numbers.
The LG G2's extensive software features, glossy, plastic finish and an excellent 5.2in screen make it easy to compare to the Galaxy S4, but the software is overwhelming, many of the extra features don't add much to the user experience, and LG's decis...
Nokia has unveiled what it describes as its "first ever large screen Lumia smartphone", the Lumia 1520. Featuring a 6in, full HD display and powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core processor, the Lumia 1520 also includes a 20-megapixel PureView camera.
HTC has officially announced its worst kept secret, the HTC One Max. Set to compete directly with Samsung's popular Galaxy Note range, the One Max has a 5.9in display, a microSD card slot, and includes a fingerprint scanner on the back.
The Galaxy Note 3 is best described as an evolutionary device, rather than a revolutionary one, but its fantastic display, slim build and fast software make it a fantastic option for anyone who's looking for an oversized smartphone.
The Kogan Agora HD smartphone combines a good display with solid performance and retails for a hugely competitive price. It's only let down by a lack of internal memory and below average battery life, but still comes highly recommended for anyone on ...
Apple's new iPhone 5c isn't for everyone and doesn't really offer anything new aside from iOS 7. However, it remains a worthy upgrade for anyone with an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S, or more importantly for Apple, anyone currently without an iPhone.
The iPhone 5s' screen is small by 2013 standards and is unlikely to attract users switching from large screen Android devices, but this is easily the best smartphone Apple has ever released and will keep most iPhone users satisfied.
We've been eagerly awaiting a review sample of Lifeproof's latest IP68-rated waterproof, dust-proof and shock-proof 'nüüd' case for the iPhone 5. Watch as we unbox, deploy and get the 'nüüd' a little wet for science.
Chinese smartphone manufacturer Oppo has just announced its latest flagship Android smartphone, the N1. It features the "world's first rotating smartphone camera", has a full HD, 5.9in display, and comes with an "O-Touch" panel on the rear.
The HTC One Mini has an attractive design and a great display, but an inflated on-contract price tag, less than stellar performance and poor reception make it very difficult to recommend.
The Apple iPhone 5c uses largely the same internals as the existing iPhone 5, but wraps the device in a plastic case that comes in five bright colours. However, it's more expensive than expected in Australia.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
