Nokia X Review

The Nokia X is the Finnish company's first Android smartphone. That's not a sentence I ever thought I'd say, but apparently 2014 is the year where anything can happen. This phone has really agitated tech pundits around the globe. Why is Nokia doing this? Isnt it in completely the opposite direction of Windows Phone? What's up with that UI? Well, here's what you need to know. The Nokia X does runs Android, t ...

Nokia X Unboxing [VIDEO]

Kickstarting our Nokia X Review, here's a quick unboxing of Nokia's first Android phone. A year ago, if you told me Nokia was working on an Android phone, I'd roll my eyes, go "oh yeah, for sure" and sigh at the thought of it. But hey, look what we have here! Announced at Mobile World Congress 2014 last month, the Nokia X is already available in certain parts of the planet, starting with India, where there' ...

Moto G Review – How Far We’ve Come

The Moto G has been touted as the killer low-end Android device ever since its global launch in November 2013. It was rumoured to come to India at the end of December, but due to great demand for it elsewhere, the word was that they postponed the launch. Then, the signs indicated it would launch here somewhere in the middle of January 2014. That didn't happen either. Then we finally got an indication from t ...

Pebble Steel Unboxing [VIDEO]

Holy crap, it's the Pebble Steel! Right here in my grippy little hands. Well, actually, on one of my hands, to be precise. Right on my wrist. And it looks great. Now as you probably know if you're a regular viewer of UnleashTV, I'm not the biggest fan of SmartWatches (or wearables for that matter), because I really wasnt a fan of how they looked. Previously, all the smartwatches that I've seen have looked a ...

AT&T LG G Flex Unboxing

AT&T sent us over the LG G Flex to check out this week! It's the first curved touchscreen phone we've got the chance to play around with, and that means it's definitely something of interest. Ofcourse I've got a ton of questions about it, like how useful is a curved phone anyway? Does the self-healing back panel actually work? But we'll answer all that in our LG G Flex Review. For now, here's a quick un ...

I bought a Surface – The (Ir?)relevance of Windows RT in 2014

I know, I know, it's been almost 18 months since the Surface RT was launched. It's been 6 months since its successors were launched as well. What could I possibly say that hasn't been said before? Well, nothing. Actually. But this editorial isn't about telling you whether to buy a new Surface RT or not, this is the story of a boy who saw one selling on olx at a dirt-cheap price, and decided to take a gamble ...

[Gallery] The Best Pictures We’ve Taken with a Mobile Phone (in 2013)

Exactly one year ago, we posted the best pictures we'd taken with a mobile phone so far. It was a glorious gallery of how mobile phone photography has evolved, all the way from the Nokia N73, Nokia N95 and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10, to the Nokia 808 PureView. But that was until January 2013. 2013 was a huge year for mobile photography. Atleast in my opinion. We saw fantastic camera efforts by many mobile ...

Nokia Lumia 1520 Review

Nokia has been releasing Lumias in all sorts of sizes and price-ranges so far, but there's one segment they've missed out on: the phablet. Sure it's a made-up word, but it's an important market segment (for reasons that escape me) and Nokia only had the Lumia 625 which released a couple months ago. It was an affordable device, with a large, low resolution screen, and nothing about it really screamed 'this i ...

Jawbone Mini Jambox Review

The market for portable Bluetooth speakers is a crowded one, where no-name brands compete alongside established names such as Logitech and Jawbone. I have had the opportunity to take Jawbone’s latest entrant for an extended spin, and this is what I think of it. Design The Mini Jambox is very much a premium product both in terms of positioning and in its industrial design. It sports a unibody construction an ...
