Xperia XA2

1. Sony Xperia XA2 review: One last hurrah for OmniBalance

Like most Sony phones. The Xperia XA2 is a good option but it’s not quite the best out there.
Review Date: 25th April, 2018
RRP: $ 549.00
KEYone: Black Edition
5.00

2. Blackberry Keyone Black Edition Review: What the original Keyone should have been

The extra memory stops the Keyone grinding to a halt after a month. The accurate keyboard is a real head-turner in a crowded market and it’s still great value.
Review Date: 30th Jan., 2018
RRP: $ 899.00
R11s
3.75

3. Oppo R11s: The iClone you know and love, but not quite the one you deserve

As an alternative to the iPhone 8, the R11s is easy to recommend - the performance is good, the camera rig is nice, it’s got a compelling build quality and slick feel-factor.
Review Date: 1st Feb., 2018
RRP: $ 659.00
Galaxy S9+
4.25

4. Samsung Galaxy S9+ review: A predictably-exellent flagship uplifted by a standout camera

With the S9 and S9+, Samsung swing their engineering talent, brand power and their overall focus back towards the camera side of the equation and, while the results of this pivot aren’t by any means poor, the whole thing does ...
Review Date: 16th March, 2018
RRP: $ 1,349.00
G7 ThinQ
3.75

5. LG G7 review: As by-the-numbers as flagship smartphones come

LG's G7 ThinQ is a by-the-numbers hardware play that - while perfectly adequate - utterly fails to be anything more than a raw, arithmetical, sum of its parts.
Review Date: 6th July, 2018
RRP: $ 1,099.00
Redmi Note 5
4.00

6. Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 review: A budget phablet that swings above its weight

Between the solid material design and build-quality, performance that swings above its price-bracket and slick software experience, the Redmi Note 5 is a smartphone that’s very easy to recommend.
Review Date: 2nd July, 2018
RRP: $ 269.00
R15 Pro
4.50

7. Oppo R15 Pro review: A compelling mid-tier option with lots of value and few compromises

The R15 Pro sees Oppo bring more of that flagship experience to the sub-$800 smartphone space than ever before to generous effect.
Review Date: 11th July, 2018
RRP: $ 779.00
Nova 3e
4.00

8. Huawei Nova 3e: P20 in a pinch

Huawei have packed a ton of value into the Nova 3e. However, they’re not the only brand packing a lot of value into that $200-$400 space anymore - and that leaves the Nova 3e outgunned on a few choice fronts.
Review Date: 20th July, 2018
RRP: $ 399.00
8 Sirocco
3.75

9. Nokia 8 Sirocco review: A unique flagship that's more of a mutation than a market-leader

For all its charms and unique design choices, the Nokia 8 Sirocco struggles to feel worthy of that $1199 asking price.
Review Date: 23rd May, 2018
RRP: $ 1,199.00
P20 Pro
4.50

10. Huawei P20 Pro review: See it and believe the hype

A good smartphone is more than just a camera - and while the P20 Pro’s camera do catch more of the finer details than the competition can, a lot of elements around that camera don’t always deliver on the same ...
Review Date: 30th May, 2018
RRP: $ 1,099.00
Xperia XZ2
3.75

11. Sony Xperia XZ2 review: Different but not quite better

The Sony Xperia XZ2 is a good phone but, for the price and compared to the competition, it’s difficult to really call it good enough to make the case for choosing it over the other options.
Review Date: 18th June, 2018
RRP: $ 1,099.00

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
