Samsung Galaxy S5 : NFC Review No sooner had the Galaxy S4 launched it seemed that Samsung had already consigned it to the archive lot and announced the arrival of the S5 almost immediately. Where the S4 was perhaps a tread-water effort to remain competitive, the S5, genuinely, seem to be something that has propelled the galaxy range back into the lead in the smartphone wars. Whereas the S4 just was't much more than the S3, the S5 somehow feels remarkably more modern and device you would expect a flagship to be. Although it's a little ironic. The S5 doesn;t have the premium feel of the S4...

LG Google Nexus 4 : NFC Review It's a bit of a strange world this handset world. Here you have Google. When they first brought out a device that would carry it's name, they went to Samsung and released the Google Nexus S phone. That was all well and good and I think the device did OK in the market. It even had a go with some other models from partners including HTC and ASUS. Google then acquired Motorla handsets, and the natural assumption would be that Motorola would then build any Google monikered devices. But no. Google rinsed Motorola of all the Intellectual Property and then off-loaded...

It's was undeniably the stop gap that Samsung felt compelled to release to bide the time between the hugely successful (but facing increasing competition) Galaxy S3 and the new superstar of the lineup, the Galaxy S5. To an extent then it's no surprise that the S4 feels like an incremental step from the S3 rather than a monumental shift. But that doesn't mean it isn't without it's positive elements. The screen, for starters, is lovely. Bright, sharp and responsive to the touch. The processor is clearly up...

Nokia Lumia 1520 : NFC Review The "phablet" is a relatively new phenomenon in the smartphone market, with manufacturers pushing the boundaries of size to a whopping 6" screen. At this size the device just about remains in the smartphone phone category but is knocking on the door of the smaller sized tablet market, and hence the name. Nokia's high end entrant in the phablet market is the whopping Lumia 1520. It is enormous, but stunning. Under the hoof the specs are top whack including a quad core processor and a battery so large that it'll run the device for 2 full days on a charge. At...

Motorola TC55 : NFC Review These days, when style takes a precedence over substance, there is becoming an increasing need for niche devices that not only fit in the enterprise space, but are also designed with field workers, labourers, technicians and alike in mind. I mean, it's entirely reasonable for a crane operator not to want the latest beauty fest from Cupertino, or indeed the entry level smartphone offerings that wouldn't survive a spec of dust in a cabin 300 feet up in the air, or even worse, in a warehouse environment. This is where the Motorola TC55 comes in. This product is manufactured by Motorola...
