The long-rumoured Huawei Mate 30 series has finally launched, manifesting as both the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and the more modest Mate 30. Despite its standing in the shadow of the ‘Pro’ model, the standard Mate 30 still packs plenty of punch in its own right and comes with a significantly smaller price tag. Price & Availability The Mate 30 Series stands as Huawei’s latest flagship smartphone lineup and comes with expectantly high pricing as a result. While the full-fat Mate…

Netgear Nighthawk AX4 Review: Wi-Fi 6 Routers Are Here

Ever since it was first launched 20 years ago, Wi-Fi technology has primarily tended to focus on speed, with each new version of the 802.11 Wi-Fi standard being faster than its predecessor. That made sense a few years ago, when new services such as Netflix and Spotify were just getting started, and home users needed faster routers to cope with streaming music, video and online gaming. But most of the current generation of 802.11ac routers are now fast enough to handle…

Xiaomi M365 Pro Review: An Electric Scooter With a 45km Range

We’ve already tested out Xiaomi’s popular M365 scooter. And there’s a reason why it’s chosen by so many: it’s affordable, well built and is generally a great all-rounder. For 2019, Xiaomi has decided to launch a Pro version. It looks much the same, but has a more powerful motor and much more battery capacity, so it can take you not just from A to B, but also to C, D and probably E too. Price & availability You can buy…

Best Scales 2019: Digital and Smart Scales Reviewed

Everyone’s getting fitness trackers, walking more than 10,000 steps a day, donning the trainers and setting out on a jog recommended by RunKeeper or another of the many exercise apps. For many of us exercise is as much about weight loss as it is general fitness. All those Fitbit steps go hand in hand with the 5:2 Diet or some other fashionable eating regime because we realise we’re overweight and need to shed a few kilos. You need to look…

Detective Pikachu Review – Tech Advisor

Detective Pikachu is the first ever live action Pokémon movie, and the first film to release since Nintendo announced plans to move into more movies – there’s also an animated Mario on the way in a few years. If Nintendo does plan an all-encompassing cinematic Empire, then at first blush Detective Pikachu feels like an odd starting point. Sure, it’s Pokémon, but it’s based on a niche spin-off game that almost never left Japan, it’s got none of the collecting and battling…

MacBook Air 2018 Review: Hands-on with Apple’s New Laptop

You’d have been forgiven for thinking that Apple was going to discontinue the MacBook Air, given the lack of attention it has been given over the past three years. Short of making the build-to-order options on the 2015 MacBook Air the standard options, Apple had left the one-time lightest Mac untouched. Despite the lack of attention, the MacBook Air has remained a popular choice for people looking to get a Mac but not wanting to spend a fortune. That’s probably…

Polaroid OneStep+ camera review – Tech Advisor

Polaroid OneStep+ full review The Polaroid OneStep+ camera doesn’t need the trappings of modern technology that its makers have added to it. This isn’t me being a purist or unnecessarily Luddite here, it’s just that Polaroid has tried to use modern tech to improve something rather charming – though of niche appeal in 2018 – and largely failed. The best parts of the new Polaroid OneStep+ are a near-identical reproduction of the classic Polaroid that I remember my parents having in…

Lenovo Smart Display Review: Bigger Screen, Bigger Sound

Amazon put a screen on an Echo device in June 2017, with the Echo Show (though it took a few months longer to reach the UK). Now, more than a year later, Google has finally caught up, partnering with third-party manufacturers to build its own Echo Show rivals powered by Google Assistant, in addition to its own Google Home Hub. LG, JBL, and other manufacturers have all developed Google Assistant devices with displays, but the most impressive third-party option so…

Amazon Echo Show (2nd Gen) Rreview

The original Echo Show was the first smart display to feature Alexa and the Echo Spot, with a much smaller, circular screen came next. Now Amazon has revamped the Echo Show and made it better. But is it one to buy? Smart displays are certainly a new category of gadget, and its easiest to think of them as a tablet stuck onto a speaker. The concept is a bit like Marmite: some people love it and some people hate it.…

Twitter Rival Gab Under Pressure After Synagogue Attack

Gab was launched back in 2016 as a rival to Twitter partly in response to Twitter’s stance on free speech which has been questioned in the past few years. Twitter has previously blocked accounts for posting messages that it deems inappropriate, such as neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic tweets that the majority of people would find offensive. However, while it’s widely agreed that sentiment behind these messages is wrong, there is an anti-censorship argument that suggests the wider public shouldn’t be shielded…
