Kingwear KW18 Smartwatch Review

As most readers of this blog know by now, I’m a sucker for a gadget. I went off watches for a time, preferring to tell the time with my phone, but since getting a flip cover for my Huawei and found it annoying to have to open the cover everytime. I had been thinking about

Review : Nexbox A95X Android TV Box

A while back I wrote a review of the Rikomagic Android Mini PC that turned out to be a bit of a lemon that still sits in the bottom drawer of my desk along with other gadgets that I bought that turned out to sound better than they really turned out to be. Last month I

Lenovo TAB2 A10-30 Tablet Review

This is the second Lenovo tablet review I have written for this site, the first was for the popular Lenovo TAB 2 A7-20 7″ tablet which we bought to replace the much loved but elderly Nexus 7, which had met a sticky end when it was dropped on it’s face in the caravan. When our local seniors

Chromecast : A Beginners Guide

These days, almost all new TVs are ‘smart’ – pity about the station programmers I hear you say? Well, I have to agree that finding anything half-decent to watch is difficult at times, even though here in Oz we have a few great channels (ABC Australia and SBS) that appeal to many of my generation. For

Phone review : Huawei GR3

It’s been a while since I bought my last phone, the Huawei Y300 which I reviewed about 2 years ago (read my review here) and I was so impressed with it that I decided to replace it this year with another Huawei. The Y300 was actually still performing well, the only negative was the lack of

Lenovo Tab 2 A7-20 7″ Tablet Review

It has been a while since I posted a review of a phone or tablet, so when my wife’s Kindle finally died it seemed a good opportunity to get her an Android tablet so she could read books (using the Aldiko app which I reviewed here), surf the ‘net, check emails and Facebook etc. I

Huawei Y300 Review : Take Two

My last post on this phone has been the most viewed one on this site, so I figured revisiting after a year using the phone in the real world may be as well received. To quickly summarise the Huawei phone, here are the brief specs: Android Jelly Bean 4.1, dual-core 1GHz processor, 4.0” WVGA (480×800)

Audiosonic 7″ Tablet

A good friend recently bought one of these very reasonably priced tablets for his wife to use (I suspect she had been eyeing his beaut ASUS Transformer) so I asked if I could borrow it to write a quick review. Of course, this is a $69 (AUS) tablet so comparing it with $200+ tablets is

Globalgig Wireless Broadband Review

Mobile internet plans are notoriously expensive in Australia, especially from the major Telcos like Telstra. In the US for instance, unlimited data plans (or as near to as makes no difference) are available for a fraction of what it costs us poor Aussies, so any way to reduce costs is worth looking into. How does

Rikomagic 802IIIS Android Mini PC

I had been planning on testing one of the Android Mini PCs for some time and kept an eye out for a suitable unit to buy when I saw this one on eBay recently. One of the problems with these devices is that they are often fairly basic with low speed processors and heard that

Acer Iconia A1-810 Review

Competition is great isn’t it? As soon as Apple releases their iPad Mini and Google updates the Nexus 7,  Acer brings out a more competitively priced 7.9″ tablet to compete in the rapidly growing 7″ tablet market. Acer Iconia tablets have been around for a while, usually at the higher end of the market and

Gumrock Bluetooth Speaker

I’m a ‘gadget guy’ which drives my wife nuts I have to admit, but I’m always on the lookout for something clever that gets the job done well and if it has multiple uses then I’m even happier. So, a while ago I was approached by a nice chap called Chris from an online company
