  • LG’s curved G Flex shows self-healing power in action [video]

    LG’s latest smartphone, the G Flex, is best known for its curved display and while that’s impressive to say the least, it isn’t the only thing that makes this an ground-breaking piece of tech. A video released this week, showcases the G Flex’s self-repair technology at work. Similar to what Wolverine went through, the G Flex undergoes some serious lab testing. Unlike the superhero, the Flex faces a wire brush rubbing its rear cover and a durability test of 8kg, 16kg and 32kg weights placed on its back. Not to sound too much like an infomercial but the scratches...

  • Gadget review: Samsung Galaxy S4 [video]

    The Galaxy S4 is a hard phone to like, but that’s exactly what Gearburn editor Steven Norris did. With great power, comes greater mobile phones and sadly Samsung seems to be unable to harness this great technology. What do you do with an insanely fast CPU and an incredible screen? Samsung seems to think that you need to cram it into the cheapest-looking case of all time. Here’s what we loved about the S4: we loved the screen, dug the speed and even liked a few of the backed-in apps. What we didn’t like was pretty much everything else, such...

  • Acer Iconia W510 unboxing

    The Acer Iconia W510 is two parts of a juicy whole. The screen is sharp, the tech specs are decent and the price is just right for a product that is easily worth US$800. In reality, it costs US$650 and it’s worth every cent of that. You’re essentially getting two devices in one: a great Windows 8 tablet and a laptop when docked into the very responsive keyboard. This is just an unboxing of the Iconia W510, but our review went live a few weeks back. We loved it and said that it’s one of the best hybrid laptops you...

  • Unboxing the Microsoft Surface [Video]

    It was a very exciting day when we received the Microsoft Surface tablet for review in the Gearburn office. Editor of Gearburn, Steven Norris, wasted no time and an unboxing was done on the spot. With its change over to more hardware related products, Microsoft tends to tackle Apple head-on in the battle for dominance since the move to more mobile computing has taken pace. It was inevitable for the software giant to make the change. Featuring an HD-ready screen with dimensions of 1366×768 pixels, Mr. Norris was eager to get it out of its box.

  • Nike+ SportWatch GPS unboxing [Video]

    Gearburn editor Steven Norris unboxes the Nike+ SportsWatch GPS, a multitasking fitness freak’s dream with USB connectivity and probably more computing power than the capsule that propelled Yuri Gagarin into space. This watch is like having your own personal trainer slapped onto your wrist and keeps track of your location, pace, distance, laps, and calories burned and even reminds you to go take a run. Review your mapped runs, track your progress, view your splits, connect with other runners and even see how elevation affected your pace. Oh and it comes in cool colours as well.

  • iPad Mini review [video]

    Apple’s made some missteps during its long tenure as a tech company, but the iPad is certainly not one of them. So now, with the release of the iPad Mini, people ask “Why bother?” Well Gearburn editor Steven Norris is here to tell you that this is one of the finest 7-inch tablets that money can buy. While it may not have a Retina Display, it’s weight, size and speed make it a must-buy. Watch the review to learn more.

  • iPod Touch fifth-generation review [Video]

    One of Apple’s more popular devices, namely the iPod Touch has leaped ahead with the release of the fifth-generation version. Lauren Granger, Gearburn’s ever-eagre tech reporter takes this media player in hand and tells us why we should consider purchasing it. It’s fairly inexpensive, is shaped well and has a great collection of apps. But does it fit in with our already crowded tech ecosystem? Let’s find out.

Steven Norris, Gearburn editor unboxes this mighty beast for your viewing pleasure.

  • Unboxing of the Razor Ouroboros [Video]

    With futuristic transformer looks and a suitcase straight from the X-Files, Gearburn Editor Steven Norris found the Razer Ouroboros a pleasure to unbox. Targeted directly at the gaming community, this gaming mouse looks the part, with adjustable palm, thumb and pinky rests and no fewer than 11 adjustable buttons. A mouse that has various customization and interchanging options, it glides over almost any surface and fits perfectly in the hand. It also has the coolest lights of any mouse yet.

  • Unboxing of the iPhone 5 [Video]

    After a long wait, Gearburn finally got the iPhone 5 for review. Steven Norris, Gearburn Editor, was left to unbox it, always a pleasure when receiving gadgets from Apple. The much faster, sleeker, bigger and better iPhone was always going to be on the list of products Gearburn would like to review. With a larger display, a faster processor and 4G capabilities many saw this as the iPhone Apple should have made a long time ago to compete with Samsung in the smartphone market.
