Review: Eiger North Case and 3D Glass Screen Protector for the Huawei Mate 20 Pro

I mentioned in my review of the Mate 20 Pro that its all glass design could make it more susceptible to accidental drops and damage (especially the smooth backed variants). In this review we’ll be taking a look at a couple of solutions from Eiger Protection – a dual-layer North Case and their 3D Glass screen protector. Eiger North Case The Eiger North Case has an all-black design with ...[Read More]

After having the chance to whet our appetite with last month’s review of the Mate 20 Lite, we were delighted to be able to get our sweaty hands on Huawei’s latest and greatest – the Mate 20 Pro. Build and Design Huawei have gone with a “3D glass” design for the Mate 20 Pro, with the curved edges of its 6.39″ display blending seamlessly into aluminium at the edge...[Read More]

Review: BlitzWolf BW-BS7 Camera / Smartphone Mini Octopus Tripod

While most people enjoy taking a few snaps these days, those who take their photography more seriously often consider it essential to carry a tripod. These are not only useful when you want to be included in a photo, but are great for stable video or long exposure photography like night shots. However carrying a full sized tripod can be awkward and will certainly weigh you down – especially ...[Read More]

Review: Mbuynow True Wireless Touch-TWS In-Ear Headphones

You’re probably aware of the completely wireless airpods that Apple released a couple of years ago. However while the idea of not having any wires to get snagged or tangled is definitely appealing, their style and especially their price tag will not suit everyone. This Touch-TWS budget headset from Mbuynow aims to do the same job but at a more easily replaceable price (should you happen to lose an...[Read More]

Review: Dodocool DA168 Portable Headphone Charging Case

As more and more people move away from wired earphones to wireless Bluetooth alternatives, the main disadvantage has to be the need to repeatedly recharge their tiny internal batteries.

Smartphone Review: Huawei Mate 20 Lite

Last year’s Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro were well received, boasting great camera performance and excellent battery life.

Anticipation levels are therefore running high for the October 16th launch of the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Buil...[Read More]

Review: RhinoShield Screen and Back Protectors for the OnePlus 6

The use of glass on the front and back of the OnePlus 6 gives it that premium feel while enabling strong wireless reception. While the Gorilla Glass 5 stands up well to daily wear and tear, if you’re looking for additional drop protection and want to keep it pristine then you’ll want to add a good screen protector. As well as a tempered glass screen protector, RhinoShield now offer spe...[Read More]

Review: RhinoShield SolidSuit OnePlus 6 Case

The selection of cases available for OnePlus phones is a lot more limited compared to the likes of Samsung and Apple. The silver lining is that this has pushed us to reach out to some case manufacturers we haven’t reviewed products for before – one of which is RhinoShield, a company that originated from a Kickstarter raised by a number of students from the University of Cambridge in Ap...[Read More]
