Sony SmartWatch 3 Review: The Best-Performing Android Smartwatch Yet

Filed under
Reviews
Gadgets

Sony's been trying the smartwatch thing for years, but the original SmartWatch and the SmartWatch 2 both... what's the word I'm looking for here? Sucked? Yeah. But the SmartWatch 3 has solid performance and two nifty features you won't find on any other Android Wear. It's the first with built-in GPS and a screen you can read without backlighting.

Android Wear watches are off to a pretty decent start. The Moto 360, the LG G Watch R, and the Asus ZenWatch are all lovely and useful in their own ways. So why might you buy a Sony smartwatch instead?

Android Lollipop Review: Google's Material Design Delivers The Goods

Filed under
Android
Reviews

Regardless of the tinkering Google's engineers have done under the bonnet, the most noticeable improvement has to be the overall look. Google is calling Android's fetching new aesthetic "Material Design" and it's all about giving the OS a more welcoming look. It's mostly flat colours, clever use of shadow and UI elements which look like layers of paper stacked on top of one another. Google has left behind the world of skeuomorphic design ­–– just like Apple did with iOS 7 –– and the end result is something that looks less cluttered and more eye-catching.

How fast is the BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition phone?

Filed under
Reviews
Ubuntu

Videos of the first Ubuntu-based phone to be released in the UK show that the low-budget handset may struggle in terms of performance. The BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition will be released this week, and marks the end of a two-year journey for Ubuntu to find a manufacturer willing to ship its smartphone OS.

The handset's specification is hardly stellar. It has a 4.5in 960 x 540 resolution screen, a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek Cortex-A7 processor, 1GB of RAM and only 8GB of onboard storage, with the option to bolster that via the memory card slot.

Filed under
Reviews
Ubuntu

After years of development, the first Ubuntu phone is finally here (Europe only) and while the hardware is average at best, the OS is a breath of fresh air, bringing innovations like scopes and "magic edges", designed not just to be different, but in many ways, better than the current trends.

Plasma 5.2 review – Fire all weapons!

Filed under
KDE
Reviews

Plasma 5 has the potential to revitalize the Linux world, it’s that important and meaningful. Of course, we must not forget that applications play their critical role, but if you need to sell your product, the first look, the very first impression is important. And in that regard, Plasma has everything to gain and lose. After what happened with Gnome, it’s the one remaining bastion of sanity in the Linux desktop world. And so we begin.

First impressions of ArchBSD 2014.09.04

BSD

From a practical point of view, I'm sure most people will stick with running either Arch Linux or vanilla FreeBSD. However, as an experiment into what is possible, ArchBSD does provide us with something interesting, something a little different. With some work to flesh out the documentation and more volunteers to keep the base operating system up to date, I think ArchBSD could be a viable server operating system.

Three days after the official announcement of Manjaro Linux 0.8.12, a point release that brings only a couple of changes, such as out-of-the-box support for Microsoft’s exFAT filesystem and Pacman 4.2 package manager, the Manjaro community released today the LXQt edition of the acclaimed Arch Linux-based computer operating system. At the moment of writing this article, only the 32-bit Live image was available for download, but that’s more than enough for us to take a quick screenshot tour of the release.
