Sony Xperia XA2 review: Hands-on

We’re still waiting for a new flagship phone from Sony, which will surely arrive at MWC, but for now there are some new devices that were shown off at CES 2018. We’ve taken a look at the mid-range Xperia XA2 which also has an Ultra model. Sony has been somewhat off the pace in the smartphone world for a while and while the XA2 handsets are unlikely to turn this around, they do have a significant feature change for the…

Nokia 6 (2018) UK Release Date & Specifications

It’s easy to forget that the Nokia 6 is a year old, given that it didn’t make its way to the UK until August, but it was actually unveiled much earlier in January 2017. The company has in January 2018 announced an update to the original smartphone, with the 2018 model now official. We were expecting an imminent launch given that the new Nokia 6 had recently passed through TENAA with the model number TA-1054. When is the Nokia 6 (2018)…

Huawei Watch 3 Rumours: When is the New Huawei Smartwatch Coming Out?

When will Huawei announce the Huawei Watch 3? Is a MWC 2018 launch likely? We round up the rumours. When is the Huawei Watch 3 release date? A release date has not been confirmed by Huawei for a new model. The original Huawei Watch was announced at MWC 2015 (and then went on sale in September), and the Huawei Watch 2 at MWC 2017. MWC, which takes place at the end of February, is therefore a likely time for a…

iPad mini 5 (or iPad Pro mini) release date, price, features & specs

The iPad mini 5 is overdue. It’s been well over two years since the iPad mini 4 was unveiled in September 2015; that device is still one of the best 8in tablets around, but we can’t help but wonder what’s next for the range. Will the iPad mini 5 arrive in 2018, and if so, will it be a major overhaul, or a damp squib like the mini 3? Could it even be an iPad Pro mini? With this in…

HTC U11+ review: The Best HTC Phone for Years

As expected, HTC is back with some new smartphones including a bigger and better version of the U11 flagship. It’s onwards and upwards for the company following its deal with Google and here’s our HTC U11+ review. There was some debate over whether HTC’s November launch event was for the U11+ or the mid-range U11 Life. It turns out it was for both so now the U11 is available in more premium and cheaper options. Read about both new HTC…

With the majority of PCs and laptops having SATA ports, companies that make SSD drives are determined to support this technology even if superior interface options are available. The Crucial MX500 is aimed squarely at those people who have traditional spinning hard drives or older-generation SSDs, and fancy something better, bigger or just a new drive in their system for more capacity. With new models from Samsung and others, what makes the MX500 the SSD you might want? Let’s find out. Crucial MX500: Price…

Acer Swift 5 (2018) review

The 2018 Acer Swift 5 is one of the lightest 14in laptops to date. It weighs about the same as a 12in MacBook, and when you pick up its box you’ll wonder whether they forgot to put the laptop in. That’s not the lone appeal, though. £300 cheaper than several laptops with similar specs, it has the value factor that has seen us recommend several Acer models over the last 18 months. There are trade-offs: the Acer Swift 5 starts…

How to speed up a slow iPad

If you own an older model of iPad – perhaps an iPad 1, 2, 3, or 4, or the iPad mini 1 – then the chances are that it isn’t running as quickly as you like. Even though iOS is a modern operating system that requires minimal maintenance, it still gets full and slows down over time. If you are wondering whether reports that Apple purposefully slowed down iPhones in order to avoid issues related to batteries also apply to…

Best Tough, Rugged and Waterproof iPad Cases and Covers

We like the Otterbox Defender as it’s one of the few iPad cases that manages to be truly protective while offering a sense of style. It’s just a bit better-looking than many of the military offerings around. Cut-out areas expose the Home button, cameras and sensors (as well as the Apple logo on the rear), helping the Ottberbox Defender look more Apple-esque than other protective iPad cases. It’s still rugged, though, with dual-layer cushions and three layers of protection. It…
