Poor old Dell. It was launching Android tablets back in the day (2010) when five-inches was considered tablet-sized, with its Dell Streak so far ahead of the game it was a bit of a disaster. Dell soon bailed on Android all together, but is now BACK — with the Dell Venue 8 and Dell Venue […]

    • LG/Google Nexus 5 review

      Nexus 5It’s smooth to use, the 1080p display is sharp, clear and bright, the device is extremely light and thin and therefore very pocketable and portable — much more so than other 5-inch phones we’ve used. And yet… we’re a bit unimpressed by the overall package…

    • HTC One S review

      The HTC One S is the piggy in the middle of HTC’s 2012 line-up, offering a 4.3″ AMOLED display inside a very slim and stylish aluminium chassis.
