U.Love Portable/Home Charger Review

Sunday, February 16th, 2014

Oh my, it’s been well over a month since the last Gadgetoid update. Is it too late to wish any lurkers a Happy New Year? We hope you’re having a good one but now it’s time to grab a cuppa and see our thoughts on the latest gadget that landed on the doorstep before Christmas. […]

Which 2013 smartphone is the best for gaming?

Friday, September 27th, 2013

With the latest iPhones about to hit the stores, many people are wondering if these, and in particular the iPhone 5S, will be the best smartphones for gaming in 201. An honour that previously was held by the Samsung Galaxy 4S. The fact is that even the iPhone 5S does little to dent the status […]

SuperGrip Universal Case Compatible Car Mount review

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

In pursuit of every application to assist my (now expired) Ingress obsession, it was only natural that a car mount was next on my wish-list. Thankfully portal acquisition had already been strengthened by bonus inventory items in the form of L4 energy packs and L7 force fields. The SuperGrip Car Mount (AKA the Dash Crab […]

Adin S7B7 Portable Vibration Speaker

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

When you hear the words “Vibration Speaker”, I wouldn’t be surprised if you recoil in horror. Mobile vibration speakers are typically associated with distorted, poor quality sound rife with unwanted buzzing. And there’s good reason for this; when you’re relying on the surface you’re sitting the speaker on, or attaching it onto, to produce your […]

Antec PowerUp Portable Battery Reviews

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

I have recently contracted a healthy/unhealthy obsession of the game Ingress. While a percentage of my spare time is now consumed by keeping an eye on “Intel” and walking to obscure local POIs, my trusty Nexus 4’s battery is taking a serious battering. Since Ingress makes heavy use of screen on-time, 3G broadband, GPS positions […]

Momax XC Dual USB Mains Charger Review

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

If you’re an iPhone 5 owner who isn’t swimming in cash, you’ve probably very quickly realised that lightning charging cables and docks aren’t exactly as easy to come across as their 30-pin cousins. As an iPhone owner since the 3Gs, and now holding fast on the 4, I love the near ubiquity of the 30-pin […]

ArmourDillo Hybrid Nexus 4 case review

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

This truly is a Gadgetoid favourite. The ArmourDillo Hybrid Nexus 4 case from MobileFun is the TRANSFORMERS IN DISGUISE of Nexus 4 cases, allowing you to detach the stand-cum-hardened (fnarr fnarr) outer polycarbonate impact resistant exoskeleton from its inner TPU case. So this is really two cases in one. What a smeggin’ bargain!

Flexishield Skin Nexus 4 case review

Friday, April 12th, 2013

Having recently moved up in the world from a Nokia N8 to a Nexus 4, I found myself in need of some cases to protect my brand new shiny. First up, is the Flexishield Skin for Nexus 4 from MobileFun. This crystal case provides a cheap and relatively inconspicuous way to protect your Google N4. […]

Microlab H21 Bluetooth Bookshelf Speakers

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

Bookshelf speakers are an oft overlooked home-entertainment addition, perhaps because bookshelves are a dying breed, or are always crammed with the latest videogame releases. But the bookshelf form-factor is a great, multi-purpose alternative to an MP3 player dock and makes for a tidy, attractive desktop speaker solution, too, if you prefer to deliver your audio […]

Stickems Gadget Screen Cleaners

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Ever since the proliferation of touch based input, Smartphone and tablet screens have been terrible fingerprint magnets and that grime quickly becomes an incumbent nuisance that even a sleeve can’t cope with. Enter microfiber cloths, you’ve probably used one, and you may even keep one handy. But it’s safe to assume you probably don’t, and […]
