Moto X Review: Now With Australian Pricing & Availability

When we first got our hands on the Moto X, we were way more impressed than we thought we’d be. We’ve been using and abusing it since then, and we’re happy to say that the good first impression has held up. Forget specs. This is a phone that punches above its weight, and it’s finally coming to Australia.


Kindle HDX 8.9 Australian Review: A Half-Remembered Dream

Last night I woke up, thinking that perhaps the world had changed while I was sleeping. Content was freely available in Australia, gadgets were cheap and tablets were impossibly thin and beautiful. What I was remembering was a dream, and that dream is personified by the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9: a beautiful mirage you wish was fully realised for those Down Under.


HTC One Max Australian Review: Bulkish Brute

Ah, the HTC One series. We fell in love at first sight with the original, and found the second one a novel little brother. The larger model, however — the HTC One Max — boy, do we wish we could forget you.


Nokia Lumia 1520 Review: A Burden In My Hand

Is a device with a 6-inch display even a smartphone anymore? The Lumia 1520 is so comically large that doing ordinary smartphone things with it feels like you’re making a joke. At its best, the 1520 is a funny party trick. At its worst, it’s absurd.


Nexus 5 Australian Review: The Perfect Storm

There hasn’t been a single Nexus phone or tablet that hasn’t been stunning both inside and out. The Nexus 5 is no exception.

BlackBerry might just be on the way out, but that doesn’t mean it’s about to go quietly. The Canadian manufacturer still has a few great handsets left in it, one of them being the new Z30.


LG G2 Australian Review: A Tweaker's Dream

How does LG keep making such great devices with such bad software? I don’t understand. Thankfully, the LG G2 is a device you can tweak to your heart’s content. At least you’ll want to anyway.


Sony Xperia Z Ultra Australian Review: The Gentle Giant

Never have we had a phone through the Gizmodo office that has been more polarising than the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. People have pointed and laughed at it, ridiculed it and shamed it for being everything wrong with the so-called phablet revolution, but I think that every single one of them is wrong. Here’s why.


Nokia Lumia 625 Australian Review: Cheap And Cheerful

When is a low-end phone not a low-end phone? Who said that because it’s cheap it’s a bad deal? Meet the Nokia Lumia 625: the perfect bang for buck on Windows Phone 8.


Kogan Agora Quad-Core Review: Still The Best Bang For Buck On Android

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and it’s no secret that Kogan likes to ape Samsung gear. That’s why it didn’t surprise us when the new quad-core Kogan Agora smartphone looked just like a Galaxy Nexus when it came out of the box. Thankfully, it’s all that the Nexus was and a little bit more. Come and meet the new best bang for buck handset on Android.
