DJI Osmo Mobile 2 review

The DJI Osmo Mobile 2 is the popular drone company’s most refined gimbal for smartphone cameras, enough that it could take camera stabilizers mainstream. It’s the  sequel launching with simpler controls, smarter stabilization options and, most importantly, at a cheaper price of $129 (about £95, AU$164).  It’s the DJI Osmo Mobile sequel that offers simpler controls, smarter stabilization options and, most importantly, a greatly-reduced price of $129 (AU$209, about £95). The previous version? Yeah, that launched for $299 (AU$399, about…

Rusty Lake Paradise review: Bizarre and brilliant

Rusty Lake Paradise is a puzzle game where the puzzles are the least puzzling aspect. Three games into its run on Steam, following 2016’s Rusty Lake Hotel and Rusty Lake Roots double-feature, the Rusty Lake series has already built up an extensive layered mythos—one that’s even more convoluted when you add in the nine (shorter, free, and related) Cube Escape games from the same developer. It’s in pulling at those interwoven threads we find the real puzzle of Rusty Lake.…

Creative Aurvana Trio In-Ear Headphones review

If you haven’t been keeping up with the in-ear headphone scene these last 12 months, you’ve missed an awful lot – including our favorite new earphones, the 1MORE Triple Driver: for $99 (£85, AU$179), they offer about the best sound you’re going to get from a pair of earbuds due, in no small part, to the triple driver array packed inside each earbud.  But, as it turns out, 1MORE isn’t the only company with a compelling triple-driver headphone on the…

Hive View review: Attractive design, average features

If U.K. smart home brand Hive hoped to immediately steal some of the shine from competitors with its new Hive View indoor camera, it has succeeded spectacularly. With is satiny finish and unique “grab and go” modular design—the creation of Swiss industrial designer Yves Béhar—this security camera impresses right out of the box. The cubed camera unit can detach from the magnetic mount on its lightweight brushed-metal stand and operate for short duration on battery power. That gives you the…

Huawei Mate 10 review | TechRadar

The Huawei Mate 10 was announced in the shadows of the Mate 10 Pro. It sports a lower price, beefier design, no waterproofing and no OLED screen. As a result, it’s in danger of being dismissed as the inferior, forgettable sibling. Huawei hasn’t helped this by releasing the Mate 10 only in select markets, while the flagship Huawei Mate 10 Pro is more widely available – even in the US starting on February 18. For many users though, the Mate…

The 5 Driving Tips That Can Help Avoid Accidents

The 5 Driving Tips That Can Help Avoid Accidents Modern day cars are really smart. They assist drivers when to slow down for avoiding a possible collision, when it’s safe to change lane, and even park themselves in those tight corners. However, with even these advancements, you are still vulnerable to those accidents. With speeding high on the highways, and surprising entries of other vehicles on the roads, there is always a chance to get yourself expose, to the dangers.…

LG Watch Style review | TechRadar

The LG Watch Style (built in collaboration with Google) offers everything that’s to love from the best Android Wear smartwatches, ditches the dreaded flat tire, then fills in the gap with cool, useful features and a whole lot of… style. Roll that all up and you’re left with an extremely alluring presentation that makes a mighty strong argument for Google’s wearable platform. But there are some familiar wrinkles here. Battery life is still a low point, and, as independent as…

LifeProof Fre and Next for Apple iPhone X: Useful when your phone must be part of your outdoor adventure

When I head out to the rivers for fly fishing, hit the road for cycling, or go running in the rain, I grab a water resistant phone. However, there is still the chance the phone may drop so I need more protection and that is where LifeProof has the answer. A couple of months ago, ZDNet’s Jason Perlow introduced readers to the different LifeProof models and for the past couple of weeks I have been using the LifeProof Next and…

Acer Swift 7 hands on review

Acer has laid claim to the ‘world’s thinnest laptop’ for a long while now, and continues to do so with the latest Acer Swift 7 for 2018. However, this time the firm has increased the display size to 14 inches without impacting the device’s width, and introduced a fingerprint sensor for more secure login. On the flip side, though, Acer has decided to pull clicking functionality from the laptop’s touchpad in order to maintain its position as creator of the…

Acer Swift 7 (2017) review

This review is of the 2017 Acer Swift 7 model. To see our impressions of the latest version, check out our new hands-on review of the 2018 Acer Swift 7. Since the arrival of the 12-inch MacBook, Apple’s rivals have responded in kind with enough super thin laptops to practically create a new subcategory. It’s one that we like to call ultra-thin, ultra-luxurious Ultrabooks, and the Acer Swift 7 wants to bring that experience to more people. Acer largely nails…

Webeden review | TechRadar

First launched more than a decade ago, Webeden is a simple website builder from the UK. The Webeden website is distinctly short on details about the service. The best we could do is pick out some key phrases from a few generic paragraphs: templates, drag-and-drop, a web store, social media integration, SEO-optimized, works on desktop and mobile devices. One issue we noticed immediately is the website relies on Flash for some key content blocks, including a template browser. If your…

Voog review | TechRadar

Most website builders focus on ease of use and simplicity – in short, delivering a service that even the least technical home user can handle. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it could leave professional users wondering if the builder has the power they really need. Voog takes a slightly different approach. It claims to be simple and straightforward, but the website also highlights its many pro users: businesses, developers, designers and more. This isn’t just a marketing…

Microsoft Surface Precision Mouse review: A flagship mouse worthy of the Surface name

Microsoft’s Surface Precision Mouse is a practical PC accessory for Surface owners, especially right-handed ones. Over a week of use, I found the cordless, six-button mouse comfortable and precise. I wasn’t truly happy with it, however, until I downloaded Microsoft’s hard-to-find Mouse and Keyboard Center app, which includes a cool but gimmicky ability to straddle multiple PCs. Priced at $100 (sometimes discounted on Amazon), the Surface Precision Mouse is Microsoft’s flagship PC peripheral. As such, it’s the direct competitor to…

iPad Air 2 review | TechRadar

It was hard to see how Apple could improve on the first iPad Air – arguably the finest tablet ever produced.  And then it went and did so with the iPad Air 2. You can talk all you like about what counts as “too thin” but there’s no denying that this new tablet is a feat of engineering that again pushes the limits of what makes a premium slate. Plus, unlike the iPhone 6 Plus it doesn’t bend either! Not…

Chuwi SurBook Mini hands-on: A compact workhorse that ticks all the boxes Review

I have been using the Surbook Mini for several weeks now as my main work machine — initially as a tablet PC with a stylus, but for the last week, as a PC with the additional keyboard. At first glance, the Chuwi SurBook Mini looks exactly like its big brother, Surbook, which I reviewed in September 2017. But there are some subtle differences in this mighty mini. Obviously, it is a smaller device overall. The product size is 268.9mm x…
