Review: Surface Go - part 1: hardware, specs and value

icon

A week ago I took my first look at the new Surface Go with an illustrated gallery showing the device, its optional keyboard and its definitely optional pen. And I have to confess that it won me over fairly quickly. Having already opined on the design many months ago, at launch, I can happily admit that some of my fears were quickly dispelled and the Go is now one of my favourite computing devices - it's just so... light and small, yet it's - literally - a full PC. Not quite in my pocket, but close. It's certainly trivial to add to any folio or carry bag. Here's part one of my multi-part review for AAWP.

Review: ZAGG Flex Universal Keyboard

icon

Back in 2016 I looked at the ZAGG Pocket Keyboard, a jacket pocket solution that used multiple hinges to provide a narrow form factor - it worked, but it wasn't 'lappable' and the sheer number of ribbon cables and multiple points of failure was a little worrying. Fast forward two years and we have the new ZAGG Flex, taking inspiration from the multiple two-in-one keyboard designs for tablets that turn into 'laptops'. With the Flex, your phone can be your tablet or laptop too. Or - you know - use a tablet as well. Regardless, the Flex is superbly made and possibly my new favourite Bluetooth keyboard solution.

Review: Fitbit Versa (part 1 - overview and hardware)

icon

Back in March (2018), I reported on Fitbit's UWP application for Windows 10 including support for the new 'Versa' smartwatch. Fitbit is one of the few accessory companies still believing in Windows 10 Mobile as a viable concern and their full range of trackers and smartwatches are supported by their UWP application. And the Versa is almost the perfect smartwatch, borne of five years of iteration (including the Pebble tech, which Fitbit acquired). Here are my first impressions of the hardware and of getting hooked up.

Review: Wileyfox Pro (part 1: pitch, hardware, performance)

icon

The latest Windows 10 Mobile smartphone is interesting in many ways. It's ostensibly underpowered compared to some in the Android world at a comparable price point, yet the Wileyfox Pro is aimed at a totally different audience, one for whom Android isn't an option. As only the second new Windows 10 Mobile smartphone launched this year, this occupies quite a rarified space  - but can it make this space its own?

Review: Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro - part 1 (hardware)

icon

So... almost two years after Microsoft's last flagship smartphones (the Lumia 950 range) were launched and roughly a year after HP's Elite x3 became available, we finally have another new handset of note in the ecosystem. Yes, a variant was on limited release, on USA frequencies, late in 2016, but the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro is here now, and on full 'world' LTE bands. Here's part one of what will hopefully be a stream of review content here on AAWP.
