Google recently released the Pixel XL 2, their newest attempt at a top of the range Premium Smartphone. After all the rumours and speculation before release, is the new Pixel 2 XL an improvement on the Pixel XL? What are the differences between the two?

One of the best new features that Google have embraced is the ‘Always on Display’, also recently adopted by Samsung and other manufacturers. This is a welcome addition to the Pixel 2 XL and even features a mode that shows you what song is currently playing in your vicinity. Another interesting feature is the ‘Active Edge’, which enables you to launch Google Assistant by simply squeezing the edges of the device.

With the Apple Watch 3 hitting the market recently, interest in the Smartwatch sector is at an all time high. We have a look into the Apple Watch range, and see why having one of these devices can supplement your everyday life.

At its most basic, a Watch is designed to simply display the time to the wearer. The Apple Watch complies with this trend, with the screen flicking into life with a twist of the wrist. But as this is a Smartwatch it's understandable to expect more, which is where the Apple Watch really comes into its own.

You can customise the face of the watch, to include features such as an Alarm, Weather, Pedometer, upcoming Calendar events and even the latest stocks, available at just a glance. You can have it notify you of the latest scores of your favourite team, contact Siri, or stream your music from your watch.

Our Gadget of the Week is the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, Sony’s newest flagship device. Looking to compete with the giants within the Smartphone market, Sony have decided to pack this device to the brim with top-end technology, encased in a sleek and beautifully designed shell.

The specific unique feature of this device is something Sony call “Motion Eye”. The XZ Premium can record video at an astonishing 960 frames per second, meaning you can record in super slow motion and Sony state this is 4x slower than any other Smartphone on the market today. Great for anyone that loves to shoot video on their Phone.

Sony also have the ability to boast that the XZ Premium is the first smartphone with 4K HDR technology, giving an unparalleled viewing experience compared to any device on the market today. Coupled with the cutting edge G Lens and Exmor RS Mobile Sensor in the Camera, you can shoot and view extremely high quality images.

After a rocky few years for Samsung's Note range, the newest iteration arrives: The Galaxy Note 8. Sporting the same 'Infinity Display' as the S8 and S8+, the Note 8 is a sleek and practical addition to the line-up. 

The most striking thing about the Note 8 (also the S8 and S8+ for that matter) is the screen. Samsung state that the Note 4 boasts a 83.2% screen to body ratio, which when coupled with its AMOLED 521 pixels per inch LCD, gives a vibrant and vivid display with no bezels. 

One of the most lauded new features of the Note 8 is its camera. Featuring a Dual 12MP camera, it features something Samsung are calling "Live Focus". This means the dual cameras work together to create effects like a blurred background but an in-focus subject. A rather useful feature for the casual photographer.

Apple have recently officially unveiled this year's efforts; the long-awaited iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. With various new features, we compare the differences between them.

First of all, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are essentially the continuation of the iPhone range you already know and love. Similar in aesthetic to the previous models, it's more of an internal upgrade to the range than anything drastic. The iPhone X is something else entirely.

Sporting a 5.8 Inch display, Apple  have adopted the bezel-less LCD with no home button, perhaps to follow the success that Samsung has had with this in their S8 range. This seems to be the first major deviation from the proven formula from Apple for a long time, and is hopefully a sign of things to come. The camera also now sits vertically on the rear of the device, instead of horizontally as seen in many previous models including the iPhone 8 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy S6 - Our Gadget of the Week!

Gadget Of The Week: Samsung Galaxy S6 

Over the years we’ve come to terms with phones that hold their value well and generally maintain their visual and practical aspects. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is definitely a model that ticks those boxes and is still a very popular phone today, which is why we have plenty of second hand Samsung Galaxy S6 in stock!

Back in 2015 the Samsung Galaxy S6 was a breakthrough phone after finally dropping its previous model's plastic casing onto a more modern metal/glass look. The Samsung Galaxy S6 consists of a glass case with an all-metal band which really has caught people’s attention.

So here it is guys, our gadget of the week is the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 plus!

Since its release back in April it has received nothing but raving reviews. With its impressive specification and gorgeous looks we are happy to announce that we are currently stocking the S8 and S8 Plus in grey orchid or black.  Check out our website for a range of conditions and unbeatable prices: Samungs price: £689.00 / View our prices for the S8 Here.

We’ve given both models to our expert technicians who have run through some thorough tests to bring to you a comprehensive review:  

It is a beautiful looking phone with its smooth and flawless all glass design. The handset is lean, light weight and has no buttons on the front. In comparison to the iPhone 7 Plus the phone is the same height but smaller in width which makes it far easier to use one handed.
