Nokia Lumia 520 Windows Phone (preview)

The Nokia Lumia 520 is the company's cheapest Windows Phone to date. Set to retail for less than US$200 when it hits the market sometime in Q2, it represents excellent value for money.

Sony Xperia Z Android phone

Boasting a 5in, full HD 1080p display, a 13-megapixel camera and water and dust-resistance, the glass-clad Xperia Z is easily the best smartphone Sony has ever produced.

RODE iXY microphone for iPhone

RODE’s iXY microphone for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad is a fantastic way to boost the quality of audio recordings. If you record your university lectures, do any interview work, or want a cheap way to boost your YouTube voice-overs, this is a reasona...

Sony Xperia ZL Android phone (preview)

Sony appears to be pouring all of its energy into the upcoming Xperia Z but the Xperia ZL is a very similar device that was quietly announced at the same time. It lacks the Z's water and dust-resistant capabilities but manages to squeeze the same 5in...

HTC Windows Phone 8S review

The HTC Windows Phone 8S lacks a front-facing camera and the screen is merely average, but this is a compact, well designed device that will appeal to users who don't want a huge smartphone.

Telstra EasyTouch 4G Android phone

The Telstra EasyTouch 4G's custom designed widgets make the smartphone easier to use than most alternatives, but we feel there could have been further customisation to suit first time users.

HTC One SV Android phone

The HTC One SV is a mid-range device that features 4G capability and an excellent design but ultimately offers little that we haven't seen before. It's also overpriced.

BlackBerry Z10 smartphone (preview)

New name, new smartphone, new era. That's probably the best way to describe BlackBerry right now. The Canadian giant, formerly known as Research in Motion (RIM), has just revealed what could be its last roll of the dice in a bid to stay relevant, the...

HTC Butterfly Android phone

The HTC Butterfly's 5in, full HD screen is a marvel and the thin design quickly becomes appreciated. However, it suffers from poor battery life, has some odd ergonomics and is let down by HTC's tired Sense UI.

Huawei Ascend W1 Windows Phone (preview)

Nokia and HTC are seemingly the only smartphone manufacturers committed to the Windows Phone 8 platform but Huawei may be set to join them in the near future. The Chinese giant has just unveiled its first Windows Phone 8 smartphone, the Ascend W1.

Telstra Frontier 4G Android phone

The Telstra Frontier 4G is the first 4G smartphone in Australia to be sold on prepaid. The price comes with a few drawbacks though, including a highly reflective screen and an often sluggish user experience.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
