Google Pixel review Nexus is dead. Pixel is king. Say hello to the Google Pixel, a handset ushering in a new era of the search giant’s smartphone range.

Review: Updated: MacBook

Introduction Did you buy the 12-inch MacBook? I did, but not because I wanted one. No: the laptop I really wanted was a new MacBook Air, or even a redesigned 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro with a sleeker chassis. Of course, neither came. And like many other Air fans, I realised that another year was to […]

Review: Updated: iPhone 7

Introduction, design and screen Let’s get right down to it: if Apple had launched the iPhone 7 in place of the iPhone 6S last year, it would probably have been the phone of the year. We’re used to the S variants of the iPhone being minimal upgrades – just the right amount of change to […]

Review: Updated: Windows 10

Hands-on review: AOC U3277PWQU

Better-than-full-HD monitors are becoming cheaper with the average price of 4K models dropping markedly compared to just two years ago. That, coupled with the fact that most models now come with 60Hz input, means that there has never been a better time to buy a 4K display. However, competition comes from 4K televisions which can […]

Review: Updated: Moto G4 Play

Introduction and design The Moto G4 Play just wants to have some fun. It isn’t necessarily the most skilled at any one thing, but it’s hard to look away from a deal this good. Sitting at the bottom of the G4 totem pole in terms of specs, the G4 Play is generally lacking in marquee […]
