Samsung Galaxy Watch Active

I've seen some pretty mixed reviews on this watch which did put me off a bit and this is why it's taken me so long to purchase this and I'm so glad I did!!

This is my first review, please be gentle.

Also it has been said I am a bit of a nerd, so you might need some popcorn ready.

If you are in the market for a smart watch and are an iOS user, it's a no brainer!


Review: HONOR View20

by jonsie on ‎17-07-2019 15:20 - last edited on ‎23-07-2019 12:40 by Community Manager (1,402 Views)

First impressions were good, a well made handset by HUAWEI, quite light and quite thin. It felt very comfortable to hold with a very nice 6.4 inch screen. I love the color.

This is: Sony Xperia 1

A new Xperia, and of course it’s obviously customary for me to buy said new toy, and then immediately write a review on here listing all the new bits and bobs that Sony has added to the latest iteration of the Xperia line-up. We’ve had Z,X,XZ it seems that Sony enjoyed these letters pinned to their latest wares. This is different.

This an expensive handset by any stretch of the imagination but it has the best overall user experience I've ever had and can recommend it thoroughly.

Purely for a lot of nostalgia, a little bit of curiosity and mainly to see how far we've came, on exactly the 10th birthday the Xperia brand was released in the UK: Let's unbox the Sony Xperia X1.

Sony have released to the world the Xperia XZ3, and it is immediately proving its worth, proving its power and proving that sometimes waiting for something: this is my review of 2018's most beautiful phone.


Night, into day, Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium.

Completely, unashamedly, ever so slightly biased review of 2018's most elusive flagship, the XZ2 Premium!

iPhone X Review.

by darrengf on ‎24-11-2017 10:47 - last edited on ‎28-12-2017 09:23 by (7,494 Views)

I wanted to do a different review to the ones on the internet,  this is more based on everyday usage and how does it perform.


So I was one of the lucky ones to own the iPhone X from the start and going from an iPhone 7+ the size of the device is what was first noticed.  It fits really nice in your hand and is weighted beautifully.  The screen is stunning I can’t lie and the colours are so true of what you see, which I’ve now noticed that the iPhone 7+ being LCD doesn’t always show the correct colours, but I’m talking minuscule difference in colours...




by anticpated ‎27-10-2017 12:22 - edited ‎27-10-2017 12:31 (9,720 Views)

My initial view on it then. 


  • Nice and compact unibody
  • Quite speedy and no noticable lag
  • Current UX experience slows down overall performance on GPU
  • Camera shots aren't as good or well contrasted as my LG G4
  • Android 7 change of interface is beguilling at first then has it's caveats & learning curve.
  • "Ergonomics" of hand comfort and length of body makes switch hands difficult.
  • Sound quality is good although seems a bit coloured in the mid-range over consumer earphones.
  • Durable glass and metal finish, although not drop testing this by any means possible.


I will try some new photos later since it's sunny. Maybe I'm being dumb here but the lazer focus was the best implementation on any camera phone to date.


Posted this in the wrong topic sorry.

There’s so much going on beneath the display that some youtube commenters have referred to its power as Sony somehow acquiring some kind of black magic, and it's kind of an understandable statement when you see it working. Yeah sure it has the top line Snapdragon 835, it has 4GB of DDR4X, it has 64GB of the fastest UFS2.1 storage paired with USB 3.1 C…. But so do others, and for some reason, this thing is leaving them in its wake...
