Latest phone reviews

Nokia 3.4 review

The Nokia 3.4 is an affordable Android phone, and the inclusion of Android One means it has the potential to improve over the years. We hope it does, because at launch, the Nokia 3.4 is mediocre.


Realme 7 Pro review

Calling it a “Pro” phone might be a bit of a stretch, but the realme 7 Pro is otherwise a dependable mid-range phone with good battery endurance.


Oppo Reno4 5G review

Oppo’s latest affordable 5G handset provides an impressive combination of performance, battery life and camera features.


Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max Review

The iPhone 12 Pro Max is a big phone – big in size, big in camera features and big in price – making it a phone only suitable for a small number of people.


Apple iPhone 12 mini review

Apple’s iPhone 12 mini lives up to its name, delivering plenty of power in a truly pocket-sized phone. Predictably, the price you pay is in battery life.


Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 Review

Its price point still means it’s a luxury buy, but the second generation Samsung foldable phone improves in a huge way over the original model, making it the foldable phone to buy for 2020.


Oppo Find X2 Neo review

Oppo’s more affordable 5G handset doesn’t just rest on fast network access, providing great battery life and solid all-round performance too.


Motorola Edge review

Motorola’s first 5G-capable handset for Australia aims high with a funky curved design, but its limitations in other areas leave us wanting.


realme X3 SuperZoom review

realme’s latest handset has a higher price than you’d usually associate with the brand, but it’s easily the best mid-range phone you can buy right now.


Oppo A52 review

The Oppo A52 promises a lot for a budget phone – and it mostly delivers with great battery life and good camera performance.


Huawei Mate Xs review

Despite some amazing engineering, the Huawei Mate Xs smartphone ultimately fails to justify its asking price due to some missing applications.


Alcatel 3L 2020 review

It’s not a fast phone, but the combination of battery life and camera features makes the Alcatel 3L 2020 a real winner in the budget phone battle.


Nokia 1.3 review

The Nokia 1.3 is certainly cheap, but it makes the most of its meagre resources thanks to the use of Android Go.


realme C3 review

It cuts a few budget corners, but there’s a decent amount to like about realme’s affordable C3 phone.


realme 6 review

realme’s new flagship phone comes in at a mid-range price, and it’s an impressive proposition.


Huawei P40 Pro review

The Huawei P40 Pro has an astonishingly great camera, but it’s so significantly hampered by its software limitations that it’s ultimately not worth your while.


Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra Review

Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra is a high-performance phone with a great screen and some of the best battery life we’ve seen from a Samsung flagship in some years.


ASUS Rog Phone II review

ASUS’ gaming phone has crazy ambitions and a gorgeous display screen, but it’s too big and difficult to use for everyday phone tasks.


Alcatel 3X 2019 review

Alcatel’s latest budget “flagship” is nicely built with good battery life, but this isn’t what you could call a fast handset.


Huawei Y9 Prime 2019 review

Huawei’s Y9 Prime 2019 impresses with camera quality and good battery life, but lingering issues about Android updates give us pause for thought.


Alcatel Idol 4S review

Alcatel’s Idol 4S smartphone tries to sell itself on the inclusion of VR, but there are better reasons to opt for this mid-range smartphone.


Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Review

Samsung’s latest Note was impressive at first, but a series of exploding batteries and multiple recalls urged Samsung to pull the Note 7 from the market.


Sony Xperia XA review

Sony brings the budget back to its smartphone line-up with the Xperia XA, though you might get better bang for your buck elsewhere.


Telstra Signature Premium Review

Telstra’s Signature Premium sits oddly in the premium space, simply because while it’s a pleasant enough device, it doesn’t really push hard enough to be truly “premium”.
