Nexus 5 Review: A Geeky Gadgets Original

I haven’t written a single review since I started writing for Geeky Gadgets seven and a half months ago. (Yes, it’s really been seven and a half months.) The reason for that is because I don’t typically buy the latest and greatest gadgets as soon as they come out. But then the Nexus 5 arrived, and now that I’ve gotten it in my hands I figured it’s time to place something in the review category.

This review isn’t going to be super long or in-depth – I’ve admittedly only had the phone for a few days – but hopefully some of you will find it interesting, if not helpful.

HAND Stylus Capacitive Stylus : Review

Since owning my first iPad I have used a wealth of different styluses to both write, sketch with and navigate throughout iPad applications, and on seeing the Hand Stylus I immediately thought its smaller 4mm nib would be perfect for additional accuracy whilst sketching. Without the need to invest in the more expensive smaller nibbed styluses that require an adapter to be inserted into the 30 pin port of your iPad to use.

iPhone 4S Review (iOS 5 And Siri)

It is time for our iPhone 4S review, the iPhone 4S is Apple’s fifth generation iPhone, on the outside the iPhone 4S shares an almost identical design to the original iPhone 4 that we reviewed last year, Apple obviously decided that the original iPhone 4 design was so good that they didn’t need to change it for the iPhone 4S.

There are minor subtle differences between the design of the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S, you can now see evidence of the new dual antennas on the iPhone 4S casing and the volume and mute buttons have been moved down the casing, although it would be hard to notice the difference unless you were comparing the two devices side by side.

When the iPhone 4 was released I was impressed with the design, 16 months later we have the new iPhone 4S which looks almost exactly the same as the original iPhone 4, with its glass back, and the stunning Retina display that can be found inside the iPhone 4.

Apple iPad 2 Review

I have been using Apple’s first generation iPad ever since it was launched in the UK last year and its becomes an integral part of my daily life, is the new second generation iPad 2 from Apple worth an upgrade, have a read of our Apple iPad 2 review to see what we thought of Apple’s new tablet.

When the iPad 2 was launched, I substituted my first generation iPad and have been using the new Apple iPad 2 for the past month, and yes the new iPad is slimmer, sleeker and faster than the first generation version and also has a few unique features only the iPad 2 can perform, but does the new iPad 2 have the magic to tempt new owners to take the plunge?

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro Hands On

We also got a chance to play with the Xperia Mini‘s slightly chubbier sibling (not that the original wasn’t on the portly side itself). The specs are the same as the Mini, 1 Ghz Snapdragon, 5 MP shooter with 720p recording. Although we’ve been assured the screen was the exact same one on both units, the one on the Pro seemed far superior to the washed out one on the Mini. It could be down to a prototype issue, but the difference bore mentioning.

Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Hands On

We recently sat down with Sony Ericsson reps to have a look at the company’s smallest and yes, one could easily make the case, cutest offering, the Xperia Mini. Sony Ericsson are calling it the smallest Android smartphone in the world with HD video recording, but that’s not its only claim to fame, as the 1 Ghz Snapdragon humming along under the munchkin’s chassis and Bravia screen technology mean that at least in some respects it’s graduated to the big leagues.
