One week in with the iPhone X

I finally got my hands on the new iPhone X last Sunday and I have to admit, it's rarely left my hands since then. This - finally - is the iPhone I've wished Apple would make. Yes, there's been a ton of anticipation and hype about this phone, but for me it has lived up ...

Unboxing the iPhone X

I promise I'll write up a full review of my experiences with the iPhone X once I've used it for a few days, but first, here are some snaps I took last night. My very, very preliminary observations are: It feels great in the hand. Very high quality, very solid. Face ID seems to work ...

So near, yet so far: iPhone X lust

@TheFrankFlyer managed to snag us a couple of iPhone X handsets on launch day, while I was working in Barcelona. I tried my best to do the purchasing, hunched over my iPad and iPhone in my client's office, but I couldn't event get into the Apple Store before he'd bought them for us. So yay! ...

Missing my Apple Watch… 

In a sleep-deprived flurry of OMG this morning, I somehow left home without my Apple Watch. I know, right? Talk about a First World Problem. Actually, someone did: https://twitter.com/KatieDa81729922/status/825990887775797248 Anyway, as I waited for my DLR into town, I realised it was too late to go home to get it and hopped on the train ...

Alexa? Welcome home.

I bought an Amazon Echo Dot last weekend, with the various Amazon vouchers I got from my family for Christmas. I'd been thinking about getting the 'full' Echo model - you know, the one that looks like the monolith from 2001? I opted for the Dot after some intensive online research (a good 15 minutes ...

An iPad Productivity Boost

The only gadget I actually bought when we were in Japan in October was the Smart Keyboard for my 9.7" iPad Pro. If you don't read the remainder of this post, in terms of a review, I can only express my regret for not having picked one up months ago! But I thought Japan was ...

Some significant Android regret

I'm going to admit something pretty difficult now. It's something that's been bothering me for a couple of weeks now, so this post will serve as a kind of confession. I really regret selling my Nexus 6P. You hear that? I'm sitting here, listening to a podcast on my iPhone 7 Plus and I'm pining after ...

Testing the iPhone 7 Plus camera

I've had the new iPhone 7 Plus for a little over a week, but I've still managed to put it through its paces, indoors and out, and I thought I'd share a few of those photos here. Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality of pics. The camera app seems faster and more responsive than in ...

Unboxing the iPhone 7 Plus

Excitement levels to the max! I actually got my iPhone 7 Plus yesterday, but it was delivered while I was working up in Birmingham and I was just too exhausted to even look at it when I got in. Ten hours of sleep later, I backed up my iPhone 6s Plus to my iMac, then ...
