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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sony’s Xperia Z was released back in March of this year, and was, according to our gentleman reviewer, the best phone Sony’s ever made. Sony obviously didn’t agree, though, as it’s effectively rubbished its earlier effort by releasing the Xperia Z1 just six months later — a faster, sturdier, even more luxurious smartphone.
The Nokia 1020 represents something fairly remarkable: the nearly flawless melding of a smartphone and a camera. The assumption up until now was that while such a mash-up wasn't strictly impossible, it would surely require a laundry list of unpleasant compromises. Instead, what we've got is an entirely new kind of gadget. One that, most remarkably of all, works as advertised.
The Sony Xperia SP was an interesting handset to review. The only really fantastic Xperia I have picked up recently is the Xperia Z: that groundbreaking superphone that brought the magic back to Sony. When I started living with the Xperia SP, I thought I'd be disappointed: turns out I couldn't have been more wrong.
