GoPro Hero4 Hands-On: The Best Action Cam Goes 4K, For A Price

After several gazillion leaks over the last few days, they’re finally here: GoPro’s 2014 line of action cameras. As rumoured, there are in fact three models. There’s the Hero, GoPro’s new entry-level camera that comes in super cheap; the Hero4 Silver, which is basically last year’s best action camera plus an LCD touchscreen; and last but certainly not least,there’s the Hero4 Black, which seems to demolish every other action camera out there.


Audi S1 Sportback: Australian Hands On

Want to get an Audi S model in your life but afraid you can’t afford it? The new Audi S1 Quattro might be just what you need. We went driving around the wilds of Tasmania with the new beastly hot hatch, and it’s incredible.


Infiniti Q50 Petrol: Australian Hands-On

The first time we reviewed the Infiniti Q50, we loved it. Except for a diesel engine which just killed all the fun to had amidst the modern luxury. Now Infiniti has a petrol version of the same car, and it’s awesome.

Which is weird.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge: Australian Hands On

It’s pretty rare to see something new and unexpected when it comes to smartphones these days. Between an endless cycle of leaks and the annual slog of product announcements, it’s nice to see something that takes you by surprise. That’s why I’m so amped for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge: because it’s wonderfully weird.


Samsung Galaxy Note 4: Australian Hands On

The Galaxy Note 3 was so good, so what can Samsung do to make the world’s best phablet even better? Mostly, make it feel more premium of course.


Apple iPhone 6 Plus: Australian Hands-On
