Google Pixel 3 vs Samsung Galaxy S9

Pixel Slate review: Hands-on with Google’s new Chrome OS Tablet

Alongside the Pixel 3 and new Home Hub, Google launched the much-rumoured Pixel Slate. It’s a 12.3in tablet that seems a lot like an evolution of the Pixelbook concept, aimed at those who want a detachable keyboard. It’s also a model which gives Google something to compete against the iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro. But it runs ChromeOS, Google’s own operating system which can also run Android apps, another Google OS. It seems that Android has failed as a…

Best Honor Phones 2018 – Tech Advisor

Honor is making a great name for itself in the global smartphone market. Owned by Huawei, it’s a separate brand that often takes the exact same specs of a Huawei phone, repackages it, and sells it cheaper. Turns out, that’s a great thing for you the consumer. We tend to ignore Honor’s youth-focussed branding, as these often affordable smartphones are great for everyone (particularly if you like the colour blue, though other colours are available). They often have dual cameras,…

Gaming has come a long way in the past 10-15 years – look at how much Shadow of the Colossus has improved in its remaster to understand what we mean. Graphics are sharper, gameplay is more fast-paced, and developers can create vast, detailed open worlds that simply couldn’t have run on previous generation consoles or older PCs. There’s so much variety in open-world games too, from survival games that pit you against the environment to RPGs with a never-ending questline.…

2017 saw some massive price cuts on virtual reality equipment, as both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift slashed their asking prices by hundreds of pounds in efforts to lure more customers into their ecosystems.

How to Watch ITV Hub From Abroad

ITV Hub is what the UK TV channel calls its online catch-up service, accessible either through the ITV website or via one of the official apps.
