PAX Australia Will Make Your VR Dreams Come True

2016 is the year that VR is actually getting good. You can click a few buttons on the internet and a Vive or a Rift will appear on your doorstep a few days later — although you’ll have to pay through the nose — for your gaming PC, which is more powerful than ever.

What Is (Literally) The Hottest Smartphone Available Today?

With CPU and GPU vendors laser-focused on power consumption, modern gadgets such as notebooks and smartphones are getting cooler by the year. Mobiles in particular are still near-doubling in performance with each generation, without a matching leap in heat output. But how do today’s popular phones stack up against each other in pure numbers? Pass over that heat gun, would you?

HTC's Desire 825: Big Screen And Sound, Not So Big Price

Hot on the heels of the HTC 10, Taiwan’s favourite rival to Apple, Samsung, Sony and LG has a new mid-range handset for Australia. The Desire 825 is a big 5.5-inch-screened Android phone with HTC’s signature BoomSound audio, but it’s almost half of the price of 2016’s current flagships.

The HTC 10: A Great Camera, All Metal, No Bloatware

The time has come for HTC to finally announce its latest, best smartphone — its newest salvo in the ongoing war against Samsung, LG and its other top-tier Android competitors. HTC’s new phone is called the 10, and it’s by far the most refined and carefully thought out handset that the Taiwanese company has ever created. The 10 builds on the strengths of the M8 and M9, marks a return to form for HTC’s UltraPixel camera, and cuts out the software bloat that held previous phones back. We’re impressed.
