Running out of power is rubbish – but worse is babying your smartphone, trying desperately to get through the day by turning off all the things that make your smartphone smart! Instead, pick up a portable power bank and use your phone to the full, knowing that you can always recharge when you have a spare moment. You’ll get a full recharge for most phones with 2000mAh on tap, doubling your effective battery life.

The combination of Bluetooth speaker and and light bulb is an odd one, but it works surprisingly well.

Five awesome gadgets under £50

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Today we’re going to take a look at five awesome gadgets under £50 – all of which would make brilliant Christmas gifts if you’re looking for some! Let’s get started.

5. Six-Axis Mini Quadcopter Drone with Camera

HuaxiangToys 6-Axis Mini Quadcopter with Camera    HuaxiangToys 6-Axis Mini Quadcopter with Camera

We’ve got to start with the drone. This mini quadcopter is surprisingly advanced given its £40 price, with six-axis movement, video recording and live broadcast of your flight to a small LCD integrated into the remote control. The size of the quadcopter makes it safe to fly indoors, with a frame that covers the rotors to prevent injury. If you want a cheap introduction to the fun of flying a quadcopter, this is it.

4. Remote Pillow

Spigen SGP Neo Hybrid EX for iPhone 5S / 5 - Yellow / Black    Spigen SGP Neo Hybrid EX for iPhone 5S / 5 - Yellow / Black

This one is amusing in its simplicity – it’s a pillow that actually works as a universal remote control. It’s hard to lose, works with TVs, DVD players, satellite and cable boxes, and of course it’s comfortable too. Not bad for £20, eh?

3. Mini Camera with LED Flash

I imagine this mini camera being wrapped in a series of increasingly large camera boxes, so that the gift recipient / victim gets ever more confused as they find out just how small the camera they’re getting really is. The only thing more impressive than the size of this camera is the fact that it actually works. Slip in a microSD card, and you can take 2-megapixel photos or 720p videos… and you can even use the integrated LED flash. Amazing stuff for a camera that measures just 35 x 30 x 27 millimetres.

2. MiPow Playbulb Candle

The MiPow Playbulb is quite novel: a smart candle. You get a beautiful warming light, just like a traditional candle, but you can choose its colour and intensity on your iPhone or Android smartphone. It’s safe for indoor and outdoor use, and of course with no flame it’s much safer than the real deal. The best part? You blow on it to turn it off. Brilliant.

1. Binatone The Brick Retro Bluetooth Mobile Phone

The Brick 80s Retro Mobile Phone

Our final choice is perhaps the most useful gadget of the bunch. The Brick is a retro handset that can work as a mobile phone or a Bluetooth headset. It comes complete with comfortably large buttons and the ultimate mobile game: Snake. Its massive integrated battery provides 470 hours of standby time, and 14 hours of talk time. It works with standard-size SIM cards and 2G networks – no data required here! There are still a few modern touches, with a built-in flashlight, a microSD slot for your music and a speaker for the same. If you want to bring back the glory days of early mobiles, pick up The Brick.

Spec Ops: iPhone 6 Plus vs Nexus 6 vs OnePlus One vs Note 4

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

In this article, we’re going to consider how the biggest phablets of the year stack up. We’ll be looking at three Android smartphones – the Nexus 6, Note 4 and OnePlus One - in addition to Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus. Let’s begin!

Display

Nexus 6 Note 4 OnePlus One iPhone 6 Plus
5.96 inches 5.7 inches 5.5 inches 5.5 inches
2560 x 1440 2560 x 1440 1920 x 1080 1920 x 1080
493 ppi 515 ppi 401 ppi 401 ppi

It seems only natural to start with the defining feature of these phones: their displays. Each one comes with a display greater than 5.5 inches across the diagonal, putting them firmly in phablet (phone / tablet hybrid) territory. The One and 6 Plus are the smaller pair, while the Note 4 and Nexus 6 are closer to the tablet end of the scale. Despite their greater size, the higher resolution 1440p displays of the Note and Nexus grant them denser screens, which should make text and images appear more crisply.

Display technologies are also important; the Nexus 6 and Note 4 use AMOLED while the OnePlus One and iPhone 6 Plus are using IPS LCD displays. AMOLED is traditionally more power-efficient and has more vibrant colours, while IPS LCD tends to be more colour accurate with better viewing angles. Each display used here is high-end though, and so these differences are minimised.

Ultimately, there’s little here to differentiate these phones from each other; rather it depends what size you’re most comfortable with. We’ll get more into that with our next item – dimensions.

Winner: Tied

Dimensions, Weight and Materials

Nexus 6 Note 4 OnePlus One iPhone 6 Plus
159 x 83 x 10.1mm 154 x 79 x 8.5mm 153 x 76 x 8.9mm 158 x 78 x 7.1mm
184 grams 176 grams 162 grams 172 grams
Metal-framed plastic Metal-framed plastic Metal-framed plastic Metal

Given the differing screen sizes, we have surprisingly close results when it comes to dimensions. The Note 4 comes out barely ahead, thanks to fitting a 5.7-inch screen in dimensions close to the 5.5-inch OnePlus One. The iPhone 6 Plus is the outlier here, with a very wide and tall body for its screen size. Despite this, it pulls something back with a svelte 7.1mm thickness.

Each phone is constructed better than many of its peers and predecessors; the Note 4′s metal frame is a big improvement over the all-plastic body of the Note 3, for instance. When it comes to durability and in-hand feel, the sandstone back and metal frame of the OnePlus One give it the edge in the my eyes, with the iPhone 6 Plus’ fragile but gorgeous metal body close behind.

Winner: OnePlus One

Internals: CPU, RAM, Storage

Nexus 6 Note 4 OnePlus One iPhone 6 Plus

3GB RAM 3GB RAM 3GB RAM 1GB RAM
32/64GB 32GB + microSD 16/64GB 16/64/128GB

When it comes to raw power, the two most recent Android phones – the Nexus 6 and Note 4 – have the edge. Their Snapdragon 805 chipsets provide an excess of CPU and GPU horsepower, just ahead of the OnePlus One’s older Snapdragon 801 chip. The iPhone 6 Plus seems outgunned here, but the Apple A8 chipset is surprisingly good for its clock speed, and offers similar performance to the 801 in many benchmarks.

Where the Apple handset really falls behind is in RAM, offering only 1GB compared to the 3GB of its rivals. This has a very noticeable effect, as you can only keep a couple of apps open at a time. Go back to an app you had open a few minutes ago, and you’ll have to launch it from scratch. Having to reload tabs in Safari every time you go back to the app gets old really fast. Conversely, these Android handsets can keep apps ready to go in the background for ages, saving your position in the app and saving you time and data.

When it comes to storage, the 6 Plus’ default 16GB loadout is quite limiting, and the jump to 64GB is expensive. The OnePlus One avoids this with a cheap jump to 64GB, while the Note 4 and Nexus 6 start with 32GB of storage onboard (and the Note 4 can add more storage cheaply with microSD).

Winners: Nexus 6 and Note 4

Battery Life

Nexus 6 Note 4 OnePlus One iPhone 6 Plus
3220 mAh 3220 mAh 3100 mAh 2915 mAh
24hr talk-time 20hr talk-time 20hr talk-time 24hr talk-time

One advantage to going with a phablet is that you can fit a giant battery inside. These phones’ batteries average over 3,000 mAh, granting the ability to talk for nearly a full day. Using the giant display reduces these figures somewhat, but with mixed usage you’re still looking at one or two full days of use between recharges. The iPhone 6 Plus is particularly impressive, with 24 hours of talk time from the smallest battery in the field.

Winner: iPhone 6 Plus

While Android manufacturers have been chasing the spec sheets with higher megapixel counts, Apple has been focusing on image quality. The 6 Plus is their best effort yet, and takes fantastic pictures compared to other smartphones. Still, the higher megapixel counts of these Android phones do allow for better results in well-lit conditions like landscape shots. Ultimately though, the 6 Plus takes better pictures. The only disappointment is the front-facing camera, which at 1.2-megapixels is behind the competition.

When it comes to videos, it’s a little closer. Each Android phone shown here boasts 4K 30fps video recording, while the iPhone 6 Plus has excellent 240fps slow motion video at 720p. The slow motion video seems more useful than 4K, so once again the edge goes to the iPhone.

Winner: iPhone 6 Plus

Connectivity is an interesting area. On the one hand, the iPhone 6 Plus has twice as many LTE bands as most of its competitors, making it much more likely you’ll find your favourite carrier is supported. Conversely, the Android phablets have a slightly later version of Bluetooth – 4.1 – which includes better coexistence with LTE signals, smarter connectivity and direct data transfers between Bluetooth accessories. The Android representatives also include NFC, which can be used for a range of purposes like transferring files, reading ads or contactless payments, while the iPhone 6 Plus only uses NFC for Apple’s own contactless payment system.

Winner: iPhone 6 Plus

Features are probably the hardest aspect of a phone to reduce down to a simple comparison, but at least you can see the features that each manufacturer wants to highlight (that we haven’t touched on already). Each phone has its strong points: the Nexus 6 has a strong hardware design with water resistance, wireless charging and stereo front-facing speakers, while the OnePlus One focuses more on software features like tap-to-wake and optional soft buttons. The iPhone 6 Plus’ Touch ID is the best implementation of a fingerprint sensor thus far, while Continuity allows the phone to work well with Mac computers. The Note 4 is probably the feature king though, with the S-Pen and some unique multi-tasking / multi-window features that make good use of the large screen.

When it comes to software, it’s a matter of preference. iOS 8.1 lacks the depth and customisation of Android, particularly compared to the CyanogenMod build on the OnePlus One, but does many things well and looks beautiful. iOS also boasts the larger app store, and more apps appear exclusively here than on Android. Conversely, many apps are just off-limits on iOS – you can’t get a torrent client, emulators or any content which Apple finds offensive or overly political.

Winner: Note 4

Accessories

Nexus 6 Note 4 OnePlus One iPhone 6 Plus
39 products 140 products 27 products 221 products

When it comes to accessories, Apple have enjoyed a healthy advantage almost since the first iPhone. With only a couple of models to choose from, accessory makers can be assured of a big market for each item they produce. The biggest Android models enjoy similar popularity, but the Nexus 6 and OnePlus One are not as well supported.

Winner: iPhone 6 Plus

Price

Nexus 6 Note 4 OnePlus One iPhone 6 Plus
£529 ($649) - 32GB
£569 ($699) - 64GB
£575 ($749) - 32GB £229 ($299) – 16GB
£269 ($349) - 64GB
£619 ($749) - 16GB
£699 ($849) - 64GB
£789 ($949) - 128GB

When it comes to price, the OnePlus One is the least expensive and the iPhone 6 Plus is the most. The iPhone 6 Plus also puts the highest premium on additional storage, with the next tier costing an extra £80 compared to £40 for the Nexus 6 and OnePlus One. The Note 4 has only one storage option, but does come with a microSD card slot which allows even less expensive storage upgrades.

Nexus 6 prices are based on announced US prices and previous UK conversions, including VAT, and should be reasonably accurate.

Winner: OnePlus One

Overall

Nexus 6 Note 4 OnePlus One iPhone 6 Plus
1 win 2 wins 2 wins 4 wins

As it stands, the iPhone 6 Plus seems the best phone in more categories than its peers, taking home victories in battery life, camera, connectivity and accessories. The Note 4 won in hardware and features, while the OnePlus got the nod for dimensions / materials and price. The Nexus 6 took only one win in terms of hardware, which it shared with the Note.

Ultimately though, each of these four phones is a viable choice. The Nexus 6 offers bleeding edge specifications with the latest version of stock Android; the Note 4 is the feature-king with an improved design and good hardware; the OnePlus One has a great in-hand feel and is so inexpensive; the iPhone 6 Plus has an awesome camera and battery life, and enjoys a strong app and accessory ecosystem.

I hope this breakdown has made your choice easier. Let us know which one you’d pick in the comments below, or share your questions. Thanks for checking out the article and have a good week!

Here’s why you shouldn’t buy the iPad Mini 3

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Last week Apple announced their latest tablets: the iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3. Both tablets are on pre-order now for £80 more than their predecessors, but only one is worth buying. Here’s why.

The Air 2 is something of a technical triumph for Apple, incorporating a faster processor, Touch ID sensor and improved camera in a dramatically thinner frame. Apple spent the bulk of their presentation over the Air 2, and it makes sense – the tablet is a significant advancement over the original Air, and is now probably the most desirable tablet in the world.

Conversely, the iPad Mini 3 was touched upon with uncharacteristic haste. That’s because there simply aren’t any real substantive changes between the Mini 3 and the Mini 2. In fact, the list of useful changes is precisely two items long: the tablet now includes the Touch ID fingerprint sensor and is available in gold. That’s it – no thinner chassis, no upgraded processor, and no improved camera.

If you had a choice between the two tablets at the same price, then you’d pick the Mini 3 – why not? But instead, Apple are selling this tablet for an £80 premium, which makes no sense at all.

So my advice to you is this: if you want a small Apple tablet, pick up the Mini 2 while you still can, and avoid the Mini 3 unless you simply must own a tablet rendered in champagne gold. At £239 the Mini 2 is simply the far better deal.

n.b. If you have an iPhone 6 Plus, you may want to steer clear of the Mini line altogether. The increased screen size of the newer iPhone models means you’ll get much less of a boost in screen real estate when moving from an iPhone to an iPad Mini than owners of previous iPhones did. Already many 6 Plus owners are leaving their iPad Minis at home because they already feel  they have a big enough screen in their pocket.

iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus: which should you choose?

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

 

Last week Apple unveiled their new iPhone… or should I say their new iPhones. For the first time, it’s possible to get a new iPhone in two different sizes: the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. While the choice is no doubt appreciated by many, for others it’s an unprecedented conundrum–which should you buy? This article seeks to answer that question.

Design

So first things first–from a design perspective, these phones are identical. Both offer an aluminium construction, with bands of plastic separating the top and bottom caps from the main body of the phone. The only difference is that the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 is bigger than the iPhone 5, and the iPhone 6 Plus is way bigger than the iPhone 5.

That means if you’re used to the size of previous iPhone, you’re going to be more comfortable with the iPhone 6. All things considered, the iPhone 6 should be the ‘default’ choice chosen by most people, and best supported by accessory makers.

Left to right: iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C

Specifications

When you look at the phones more closely, not too many more differences are apparent beyond the size of their screens and bodies. I’ve highlighted the differences in the table below:

DISPLAY 4.7-inch 1334×750 5.5-inch 1920×1080
CPU Apple A8 1.4GHz dual-core Apple A8 1.4GHz dual-core
RAM 1GB 1GB
STORAGE 16 / 64 / 128GB 16 / 64 / 128GB
NETWORK 20-band LTE 20-band LTE
WIRELESS Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi ac Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi ac
NFC Apple Pay only Apple Pay only
BATTERY 250 h standby, 14 h 3G 384 h standby, 24 h 3G
CAMERA 8MP dual-LED, 1.2MP 8MP dual-LED w/ OIS, 1.2MP
SIZE 138.1 x 67 x 6.9mm 158.1 x 77.8 x 7.1mm
WEIGHT 129g 172g
OS iOS 8 iOS 8
COST £539 £639

 

So beyond the different screens, sizes and weights, there are precisely two hardware differences. First, the iPhone 6 Plus has a larger battery, allowing it to last a little longer – particularly when the screen is off. Secondly, the camera has optical image stabilisation. The OIS works to counteract hand shake, allowing you to take less blurry photos–but it’s worth noting it’ll do nothing for capturing fast-moving subjects, like sportspeople and children.

So given these differences, there are three immediate kinds of people that might want the iPhone 6 Plus over the ‘default’ iPhone 6.

1. Fans of massive Android phones like the Note 4 or LG G3
2. Frequent iPhone photographers looking for the best hardware
3. People who need that extra boost in battery power

Tradeoffs

Of course, in these latter two cases there’s a trade-off: you’re getting a massive iPhone which weighs more and is harder to use with one hand – particularly if those hands are smaller than average.

Apple have anticipated this issue, and have made some changes to the hardware and to iOS 8 to (partially) alleviate it. Firstly, the lock button is now on the right hand side of the phone instead of the top (on both new models). They’ve also made a ‘reachability’ gesture: tap the home button twice to have the screen move down towards your fingers, allowing you to reach controls at the top of the phone more easily.

A tablet replacement

Even with these in place, you’re getting an iPhone that’s feels closer to the iPad Mini than to the original iPhone. In fact, when you compare an iPad Mini and an iPhone 6 Plus playing videos, the usable screen size is surprisingly close because the iPad Mini uses only the middle portion of its 4:3 display to show 16:9 videos.

Left to right: iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Mini

The similarities with a small tablet don’t stop there. Apple have also adopted the iPad’s split view for many landscape-mode iPhone 6 Plus apps. That means you’ll get an additional pane on the left or right, showing you more information at a glance than you’d find on the iPhone 6 or 5 version.

That makes for an iPhone 6 Plus that can replace both phone and tablet–and maybe even your laptop too. If you’re tired of carrying around multiple devices, then the 6 Plus could be ideal.

The final choice

I think, all things considered, the iPhone 6 will appeal to more people than the 6 Plus. A jump from 4 to 4.7 inches is already substantial; a further jump to 5.5 is almost too much. Of course, if you’re coming from the Android ecosystem, you may already be used to phones in that kind of region, and the 6 Plus becomes more appealing.

Otherwise, the advantages of the 6 Plus–longer battery life, a slightly better camera–are well balanced by the inherent clumsiness of using a larger phone, despite Apple’s best efforts. If you are a keen photographer, or you need a boost in battery life desperately, then the iPhone 6 Plus can make sense. For everyone else, the iPhone 6 is the better choice.
