Nokia Lumia 1320 7

Nokia Lumia 1320 Review

Budget phablets are something that have not really landed on Western shores as they have in the Asian market and the steadily increasing smartphone scene of other emerging economies. This leaves UK punters looking for a large-screen device limited to the pricey Xperia Z Ultra and Samsung Galaxy Mega and Note ranges...

Google Chromecast Review, A Tiny Device with Big Possibilities.

Google's Chromecast has been available for some time now in both North America and the UK but I've only recently, over the past couple of months, taken the plunge and purchased Google's £30 HDMI dongle for myself. I'm pretty new to the set-top-box party and in I come with something that couldn't quite be considered as such, but what I use it for is more than suitable. Google's Chromecast is a streaming device which requires you to think differently, much like Google's Chromebooks and hopefully in this review I'll help you understand what I mean.

View Quest Hepburn DAB+ Digital Radio Review, How Radios Should be...

Radios have become much more than just simple FM stereo systems limited to just one function. Now they come with DAB or DAB+ capabilities, the option to dock your iPod or iPhone and even the option to connect your devices via Bluetooth. It's now becoming increasingly overwhelming when looking for something to simply play a standard radio station, and the View Quest Hepburn doesn't make that decision any easier. With all of the bells and whistles that you'll find on a high spec digital radio, how well does it perform?

Urbanears Humlan Review, The Price of Practicality

This is the tale of one girl and her plethora of headphones, and it’s probably not too dissimilar to some of yours, that is if you can’t walk around in public without your iPod blaring at any point of the day. What? I'm shy.
Lumia 1520 lock screen full

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review

The Lumia 1520 is Nokia's first foray into the 'phablet' market, coming in with a massive 6 inch screen, huge internals, an impressive camera, and an OS that is always improving the Lumia 1520 is a knockout.

View Quest Retro Radio Review.

I'm not one to listen to the radio other than when I'm in the car but then I'm very limited to local FM radio stations or the bigger national stations like BBC Radio 1. Apparently DAB Radio is the future of radio broadcasts so we grabbed a hold of the View Quest Retro Radio so I'm going to share my thoughts on this great looking bit of tech!
HP Chromebook 14 Feature

HP Chromebook 14 Review

With Chromebooks becoming increasingly popular and can be found at most electrical retailers such as Argos. The HP Chromebook is the latest edition to the Chromebook line and can be bought for as little as £249.99, today we're taking a look at the new HP Chromebook 14, which is available in 'White' (basically silver), Turqoise, and Peach. Of course, we were sent the lovely bright Peach variant with DataPass, so how did it perform?
Jabra Tag 2

Jabra Tag Bluetooth Mobile Headset Review.

Wires are the bane of my life. They're never long enough, they always get tangled up, and I can never get my phone out of my pocket to change the track or press the button quick enough to answer a call. That's where the Jabra Tag comes in. This dog-tag style Bluetooth mobile headset aims to tackle the fight that I have with unnecessary wires everywhere as well as offering a way to easily control music and my smartphone at the push of a button.

Advent Vega Tegra Note 7 Review

2013 saw a massive surge of affordable 7-inch devices come onto the market, Google released their updated Nexus 7, Tesco introduced their Hudl to the world, Argos released the affordable MyTablet, Currys/PC World released the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7, hell, even ALDI had a stab at releasing a cut-price tablet, but who's offering the best out of the bunch? Over the next few months we'll be releasing a handful of reviews on the aforementioned devices starting with the highest priced tablet of the lot, the Advent Vega Tegra Note 7.
Avantree Hive

Avantree Hive Wireless Headphones Review

A general rule that has seemed to follow me for many years is that me and headphones do not get on. At all. Whether it be one headphone dropping sound altogether, wires becoming frayed and broken or headphones straight up falling apart I've seen it all. It would seem that I've found an answer to my problems in a pair of Avantree Hive headphones...
Mavericks Logo

Mac OS X Mavericks Review

Apple have done away with their animal named operating system for Mac OS X version 10.9, opting instead for the sleek sounding 'Mavericks', which by definition means unorthodox. With this in mind the name is slightly misleading, as the OS sticks to the blueprint set out by Apple in their OS X vision, it is very much a slight improvement upon previous iterations rather than a huge reimagining, which means it falls in line with most OS X updates...

Samsung Galaxy Mega Review, How Big is Too Big?

Thank's to Phones4U we managed to get hands on with Samsung's Galaxy Mega, a device that's surprisingly not in their range of Note "phablets" but boasts a masssive 6.3-inch screen. I took this phone for a spin to see exactly what Samsung are offering with this device, but let me tell you, it's left me a little confused.

The Polar RCX5 GPS-Enabled Sport’s Watch Review

I wouldn't exactly call myself a fitness buff, but occasionally I'll get a spring in my step and feel pro-active about doing some form of exercise. For me "exercise" consists of walking the dog for longer, going on a bike ride, or spending an hour or so doing lengths in the swimming pool and they're all great but I'm a numbers guy, I want to see whether my effort is paying off not just feel it the next morning when I can't move.

Most fitness trackers rely on one main feature, the pedometer, anyone can pick it up and use it with the results based on calculations which take into account your physical stats such as heigh and weight. But pedometers are prone to mistakes and calculations are based on guesswork. I wanted something that told me how I was doing based on my body, not how many steps I'd done. That's why I opted to check out the Polar RCX5 GPS-Enabled Sports Watch

Taasky. A beautiful and simple task manager app.

If you know me and my habits here on n3rdabl3 you’ll know I love task management apps. Today I would like to bring your attention to Tassky.

Contactive for Android Helps Identify that Unknown Number.

I'm sure you can probably recall the countless time's you've been called by a number you didn't recognise and just left to ring out assuming it's an unwanted caller or call center trying to sell you double glazing or a new phone contract, only to realise that it's the restaurant you plan to visit calling to confirm your reservation. Annoying right? Well Contactive helps with that problem by identifying who that number belongs to!
