An evening at Sony Europe HQ checking out their 2015 Product Lineup. #SonyPreview

Earlier today I went to Sony Europe’s Headquarter in Weybridge, Surrey to experience Sony’s 2015 Product Lineup. This included TV, Digital Imaging and Sound.       Let’s start with TV. Sony were keen to show off their new 4K Processor X1 technology. They did this by having a side by side comparison between a 2014 TV and a (not fully final) 2015 TV. While it’s hard to judge the difference in quality...

Samsung takes a leaf out of Apple’s i‘Book’ with “Touch ID” inspired sensor in upcoming GALAXY S6.

Samsung takes a leaf out of Apple’s i‘Book’ with “Touch ID” inspired sensor in upcoming GALAXY S6.

There are strong rumours indicating that Samsung will do away with the swipe style mechanism for their fingerprint sensors as found on the GALAXY S5, Galaxy Tab S and Galaxy Note 4 products in favour for a touch based sensor, akin to the one found on Apple’s iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.     Why touch as opposed to swipe? Well touch is more precise and it allows the device to capture more of the thumb in one go. To satisfy...

Nokia Lumia 1520 unboxing

Yes, the title is correct. This article is an unboxing…. article! I know that when you hear the term ‘unboxing’ you immediately think about it as being a video. But I have to tell you, you are wrong! At least this time. For this phone, I started to ‘think different’. No wait, that’s what I should’ve said when doing an article for the iPhone 6. So again, I started to think out of the box! Completely...

Review: Nutz Audio Swank earphones

Review: Nutz Audio Swank earphones

Coming off my last review, I mentioned how I’d recently bought a pair of Sennheiser earphones. A company I had admittedly never heard of by the name of Nutz Audio came to me directly and set me a challenge. “Our earphones can match the audio quality of your Sennheisers, if not that, then it will beat them.” Safe to say I was sceptical about it, so I got a pair of their earphones, and tested the theory out. I was blown away. The sound...

Review: BassBuds Classic

Review: BassBuds Classic

When I received these earphones, I had not long brought a pair of Sennheiser earphones out of my own pocket. The Bassbuds Classic range had a lot riding on them with sound quality, and sadly, I was disappointed by the quality they gave. The company say that the earphones are dedicated to giving you great sounding music with incredible sounding bass, I did not get this, and while I was using them, I put a load of bass heavy music through...
