Listen’s corner:

I’m looking for a way to stream music from my Android phone to my HiFi.

Obviously there are Bluetooth adapters out there but Bluetooth audio

quality isn’t great…

 

There’s the Rocki which is Wi-Fi and apparently great audio quality but

can only play locally stored music, not streams from radio or Spotify

etc.

 

Any ideas?

Both phones are going to capture their audiences and there will be no surprises that the iPhone 6+ will outsell the Note 4 greatly, however the dent in iPhone 6+ sales that the Note 4 will make is the interesting bit and from the looks of this video Samsung are going to take no prisoners.

Sony Xperia Z3 frontFollowing Sony’s big announcement today at IFA in Berlin, Phones 4u have got to grips with the new Sony Xperia Z3 flagship smartphone. Will it wow the tech world as much as its predecessor, the Xperia Z2? Find out in the full video review below:

The Sony Xperia Z3 really pushes the limits of smartphone technology. It is fully water and dust proof, slimmer and sleeker in design and it has a battery boost thrown into the mix. The latest Sony flagship really does set a precedent for other manufacturers and with Android on board, it has never been easier to get the best out of a device.

Powercubes Unboxing

vlcsnap-2014-08-28-16h54m38s123Recently we received some rather fetching PowerCubes from Allocacoc, a reimagination of a four gang power adapter for home use. These PowerCubes come in all manner of different configurations to fit your needs and we have a look at two different sorts. Over the last week we have been putting these to use and finding them quite adaptable to their surroundings and much better looking then the traditional style. The wife doesn’t seem to mind having one of these stretched across the floor and the layout of the plugs themselves have proved to be entirely practical.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Video Comparison

S5 ArtyThe Samsung Galaxy S5 has been out for a little while now and has met with some of the more mixed feedback we have seen for a flagship smartphone. There is always a battle of the camera and in a series of videos we hope to help you make your own mind up on which device has the best video quality for your needs.

Test video quality isn’t an easy thing, there are many factors to deal with, just as still shots. I find the best test is a dashboard mount as over a few minutes the camera will have to pull focus multiple times, deal with an extreme variety of light conditions and constant movement, not to mention shakes. In addition the microphone’s performance will also be put to the test with the constant background noise, whilst balancing vocal input.

The following are the Samsung Galaxy S5′s attempt to deal with a quick journey through my home town in my 3.0 litre pick-up truck on the four different settings available.
