  • Samsung Galaxy S5, Gear 2 unboxing [Video]

    Samsung’s recently launched the Galaxy S5 and its follow-up smartwatch, the Gear 2. Want to know what these tasty gadgets look like? Then you’re in luck as Editor Steven Norris digs into the fully-recycled packaging to see what’s inside. As usual, Samsung’s managed to cram as much as possible into its boxed products. But can the internals of the Gear 2 and S5 match the simplicity of Apple’s packaging? Let’s take a look inside.

  • ‘The Last of Us': press kit unboxing

    Here’s an unboxing of the best game of the year and for once, The Last of Us is deserved of that title. It’s a handsome box, with some of the excellent extras such as bonus multiplayer content and a cassette tape that is actually a… well, we won’t spoil the surprise for you. Recently, we wrote about how The Last of Us sold over 3.4-million copies, making it the fastest-selling game of 2013 and one of Sony’s most successful games on the PS3. What we’re unboxing here is the press kit edition of The Last of Us. It was selectively...

  • BlackBerry Q5 unboxing

    It came in a modest box with “Q5” plastered on it like a red-letter of shame. The US$500 BlackBerry Q5 is here, and it’s half the phone the Q10 is, literally. From only a few days of use, the Q5 feels very plastic and its qwerty keyboard was seemingly made for the hands of mice. There are some surprises to the Q5, such as the BB 10 OS which was redesigned from the BlackBerry Z10’s full screen format. Is a 4:3 screen better on a BlackBerry than a 16:9 display? From initial tests, we can safely say that the...

  • 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...

  • Samsung Galaxy S III LTE [Unboxing]

    Did you ever thing the Samsung Galaxy S III could get even better? Well it has, with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S III LTE. This phone is capable of incredible mobile speeds, but only in certain countries and certain areas to boot. But if you are in an LTE-capable area, then prepare yourself for a blazing fast mobile browsing and downloading experience. Steven Norris, Gearburn editor unboxes this mighty beast for your viewing pleasure.

  • Apple TV [Unboxing]

    Ever-excitable Gearburn Editor Steven Norris unboxes one of the cooler products Apple’s recently released, namely the brand new Apple TV. This tiny little black cube of magic connects to a TV, and streams content from iTunes. It’s a neat idea, as Apple TV also streams Netflix, Youtube and the ESPN sports channels to name but a few content hubs. So obviously we rip it apart and see what you can expect to get if you purchase the Apple TV.

  • iMac 27” unboxing [video]

    Fearless Gearburn editor Steven unboxes Apple’s frankly amazing iMac 27-inch all-in-one desktop. Without a doubt, this is one of the hottest Mac’s we’ve ever laid eyes on and Mr Norris unboxes it with the glee of a schoolchild unwrapping a gift on Christmas day. The specs’ are pretty crazy, the screen is insanely large, it’s all practically wireless, except for the power cable, and it’s yet another quality package from Apple. Watch the video below and drool in envy.

  • Nintendo president delicately unboxes Wii U [Video]

    Nintendo president Satoru Iwata dons whites gloves, which he gleefully states makes him look like Mario, and unboxes the new Wii U. It’s one of the most honest and careful unboxings ever put to film, so to speak. Iwata unboxes the Wii U Premium which will sell for US$349. The standard Wii U is priced at US$300. The box is crammed with only the very basics. A stand for the Wii U and the tablet controller, which is for the Premium pack only, a massive power adapter and a hell of a lot of cardboard. What may cause concern is...
