Fujifilm FinePix XP130 review | TechRadar

The Essential Review This is TechRadar’s review summary that gives you all the key information you need if you’re looking for quick buying advice in 30 seconds – our usual full, in-depth review follows. Phones like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Sony Xperia XZ are water resistant, but would you take them skiing or snorkelling? Probably not, which is the gap in the market that Fujifilm is going for with its new XP130.  An update on the XP120 and no…

OnePlus 6 review: Top-quality design, features and performance at a great price Review

OnePlus has earned many glowing reviews for its handsets, and in doing so has set itself very high standards. Last autumn’s OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 5 that launched at about this time last year were both winners for me. The Chinese company has risen to the challenge again with the OnePlus 6 which, with flagship handset prices soaring this year, is a very competitive smartphone: prices start at £469 with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage ($529…

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI review

The RX100 VI is the latest premium compact camera from Sony. This sixth-generation model is the biggest update we’ve seen in a while to Sony’s growing range of RX100 pocked-sized high-end compacts.  While the last three cameras in the lineup have shared the same lens design, with each iteration mostly only seeing a number of performance boosts and tweaks over previous models, the RX100 VI benefits from a much longer zoom range than its predecessors, making it a potentially much…

Libratone Track+ wireless headphone review: Automated adaptive noise cancelling done right

Libratone—the Danish manufacturer best known for building specialty wireless speakers like the Zipp, the One Click, and the Too—is plunging deeper into the headphone market. Its new Track+ wireless in-ear-monitor headphones are geared towards those with an active lifestyle, sporting an IPX4 rating for sweat and splash resistance, plus some new noise-cancelling features. The Track+ has a highly flexible design, which I personally prefer to wireless headphones with collars. While the absence of a collar made it simple to slip…

Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music review: Music comes to the mid-range

Image: Garmin Three months ago I tested out Garmin’s first GPS sports watch with offline music support, the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music. It’s an excellent GPS sports watch for multi-sport athletes, but it is pricey at $450. The new Garmin Vivoactive 3 Music launches at the same $299.99 that the Vivoactive 3 launched at six months ago. The Vivoactive 3 has also now dropped to $249.99 so there is a $50 price difference between these two mid-range models. Garmin didn’t…

Peak Design Everyday Messenger 13 V2 review

There’s no shortage of shoulder bags for photographers out there and many have laptop compartments, but you still seem to end up swapping bags between photo expeditions and the regular office commute, because regular photo bags don’t have room for your external drives, cables, power packs, sunglasses, mints, ballpoint pens, burritos, headache pills and whatever the heck else you accumulate in your daily life.  So that’s the idea behind the Everyday Messenger – it really is designed to be your…

Chromecast review | TechRadar

Although we’re not ones to bad mouth broadcast television, there’s no denying that streaming is the future. And in our opinion, the Google Chromecast is one of the best, and not to mention easiest, ways to get video streams on your existing, non-smart telly. Yep, it’s still one of our faves, three years after it first launched.  The small puck is able to plug into the bag of your TV straight into an HDMI port. It’s powered via micro-USB and…

VTech VC931 HD Pan and Tilt Home Monitoring Camera review: Solid security at an affordable price

VTech might be synonymous with cordless phones in most people’s minds, but the company has also put out a succession of reliable baby monitors, many of which we’ve reviewed. It’s not a big leap from baby cams to security cams, and the VC931 HD Pan and Tilt Home Monitoring Camera shows the company is as adept at helping you keep your house as safe as your other precious assets. The VC931’s ball-shaped design takes its cue from vintage webcams, a…

Hands-on with the Doogee S50: Rugged good looks and face recognition Review

The Doogee S50 is a nice looking rugged phone compared to others I have seen. Doogee S50: Design It is slightly smaller than the Doogee S60, yet its 163.9 x 79.8 x 13.3mm size means that it does not feel clunky in my hand. It manages to squeeze a 5.- inch IPS screen and 1440 x 720-pixel resolution into its streamlined, slimmer form. Read also: Doogee Shoot 2 review: An affordable entry-level phone, but not for the enterprise It weighs…

Land Rover Explore review | TechRadar

Adventures require technology, but while there are a handful of rugged phones available, most smartphones are slippery, terrible in freezing conditions, and lacking in the battery power required to fuel their feeble GPS skills.  Cue the Land Rover Explore, an Android handset that contains a lot of unique outdoor tech for the £599 price (around $800, AU$1,042). It includes a proximity sensor, compass, accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer, a GPS patch antenna and a 4,000mAh battery that can be almost doubled with…

Chromecast Ultra review | TechRadar

Chromecast might be facing some increasingly stiff competition from the likes of Roku and Amazon, but that hasn’t stopped Google’s spectacular streaming puck from remaining one of the best (and cheapest) HD streaming devices in the world.  With the Chromecast Ultra, Google has made a solid commitment to chase the 4K HDR crowd. It’s a wafer-sized streaming device that can receive 4K HDR signal from any mobile device that’s on your network.  It may be a small device with big…

StrongVPN review: A good VPN service for rookies

StrongVPN in brief: P2P allowed: Yes Business location: Dallas, Texas Number of servers: 650+ Number of country locations: 24 Cost: $70 per year VPN protocol: IKEv2 Data encryption:  256-bit AES Data authentication: SHA-512 Handshake encryption: modp8192 Simplicity is something of a theme in the VPN services we’ve looked at recently, and StrongVPN follows suit. This newly overhauled VPN is all about reducing choice to make it as easy as possible to get online. While there aren’t a ton of extra options, there are still some key…

HTC Desire 12 Plus review

HTC revived its budget smartphone lineup this year with two new additions to the long-running Desire series – the Desire 12 and Desire 12 Plus. The Desire series is renowned for bringing top-end features in a wallet-friendly but unremarkable package. The tech-packed HTC Desire Pro 10 released almost two years ago and helped HTC break the cycle of mediocrity by offering a handset worth getting excited for. The Taiwanese manufacturer looks to achieve the same effect with the Desire 12…

Garmin Drive 51 LMT-S review

Who would have thought that in 2018, more than 10 years after the introduction of the first iPhone, companies like Garmin are still making GPS devices?  Well, it is – and it’s gotten a whole lot better over the past few years. Take, for example, the Garmin Drive 51 LMT-S, which offers plenty of features that might make you think twice about using only your phone for navigation. How much is it? But thinking twice isn’t the same as going…

The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset review: Don’t leave this elf on the shelf

I’m stepping through a portal on the heels of a young elf woman who looks roughly my own age, or at least as close as you get when you’re dealing with a race that thinks of our pitiful lifespan like we think of dog years. And it’s your normal, everyday magical portal—no big deal, right? But on the other side of the portal I face a woman racked with the lines and worries of a wasted life. I hear her…
