The Torque Audio t103z in-ear headphones take a different approach to acoustic customization compared to their competitors in the premium establishment.

‘Assassin’s Creed Pirates’ for iOS and Android game review

by 10 comments

It’s not uncommon for developers to release a companion game on mobile whenever they release a major title on the consoles. These mobile versions often share the same name but offer nowhere near the same experience, with a different, watered-down version of the story and gameplay found on the console version.

Following the release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Ubisoft has released a companion game called Assassin’s Creed Pirates on iOS and Android, with a Windows Phone 8 version coming later. Other than the pirate theme, the mobile game doesn’t have a lot in common with its console counterpart. But is it still fun to play? Let’s find out. Read more »

24ct gold-plated HTC One hands-on

by 36 comments

The 24ct gold-plated HTC One which we got to spend quality time with, is even more exclusive than the 18ct, MOBO awards celebrating version we saw back in October. HTC will make only two units the 24ct gold-plated One, compared to five 18ct devices.

At a quick glance, the 24ct HTC One looks a tad more subtle than its 18ct sibling, thanks to its matte finish (the 18ct version is glossy, thus even more blinged-out). Head inside to check out our extensive photo gallery. Read more »

‘The Wolf Among Us’ for iOS game review

by 13 comments

The Wolf Among Us is a point and click action game based on the Fables comic book series. Created by Telltale Games, the same people who made the excellent ‘The Walking Dead’ series of games, The Wolf Among Us got rave reviews when it was launched on the PC and consoles a few months back.

Now the developers have ported over the game to iOS, just like they did with The Walking Dead. Let’s take a look and see how Bigby’s adventure plays out on the small screen. Read more »

The Nokia Lumia 2520 is the Finnish company’s first tablet to boot Microsoft Windows. Like the Microsoft Surface 2 we reviewed recently, the Lumia 2520 comes with Windows RT 8.1 out of the box.

We got our hands on an AT&T version of the Nokia Lumia 2520. The highlights of its spec sheet include a beefy Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 10.1” ClearBlack 1080p display, 32GB of expandable memory, 2GB of RAM, 6.7MP Carl Zeiss camera, and LTE connectivity. Read more »

Sony Xperia C battery life test

by 19 comments

Now that we are through with our Sony Xperia C review, we took our time to detail its battery test routine.

The Xperia C runs on a low-powered quad-core Cortex-A7 processor and relies on a 2,390mAh battery unit. Even though it has a big screen to light up, we still expected some good scores because of its efficient chipset and relatively low resolution. And we weren’t disappointed. Read more »

Oppo N1 battery life test

by 57 comments

The N1 proved to be a worthy phablet in Oppo’s premium market segment’s lineup and it’s now time to dig into the battery life breakdown.

The Oppo N1 opts for a big, bright and high-res 5.9″ screen but also brings a monstrous 3610 mAh battery to compensate. That, to put it in perspective, is more than the 3200 mAh of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the HTC One Max’s 3300 mAh, the Nokia Lumia 1520′s 3400 mAh and the Sony Xperia Z Ultra’s 3050 mAh. Let’s see how it did. Read more »

Retina-packing Apple iPad mini 2 hands-on

by 133 comments

We expected the Apple iPad mini 2 to launch alongside the iPad Air – many people did – but that wasn’t quite the case. Anyway, the initial hurdle has been overcome (mostly overcome, shipping is sluggish in some markets) and it’s time to look at what could be the new most popular tablet, dethroning the 9.7″ iPad, which held that title for a long time.

The original iPad mini was just reheated iPad 2 in a smaller package, but the second iteration promises to get everything right. Read more »

Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 battery test

by 29 comments

The Galaxy Ace 3 comes in as the most recent member of Samsung’s budget Ace lineup, bringing dual-SIM connectivity and a 4-inch screen to the entry level.

Our dual-SIM variant of the Galaxy Ace 3 features a 1,500 mAh battery, which is the same capacity as its non dual-SIM predecessor, the Galaxy Ace 2. Let’s see if the updated Jelly Bean build is able to compensate for the extra power required by the additional SIM card. Read more »

by 33 comments

Although Gameloft is known more for its Asphalt series of arcade racing games, there is also the lesser known GT Racing, which was more geared towards those who prefer simulation racing.

Several years after the launch of the original game, Gameloft has now released a sequel called GT Racing 2. The latest installment ups the ante in terms of cars, tracks, visuals and pretty much everything else and just like the original is free to play. It’s clear that this time Gameloft has EA’s Real Racing 3 in its sights. Let’s see how GT Racing 2 performs. Read more »
