Phew, what an exciting week!
We had our biggest day ever last Tuesday, with over 1.5 million of you tuning in to TechRadar for news of the new iPhones, and this week we've published our in-depth reviews of said handsets for your reading pleasure!
Why read one iPhone review when you can read two in double the time?
It's not all been about iDevices though. We've published the usual range of cool news and features.
So here's a round-up of all the best features, reviews and videos from the past seven days on TechRadar, from an inside look at the making of Grand Theft Auto V, to a round-up of our favourite phone handsets from across the ages.
How Rockstar built the world of GTA 5
An insider's look at the biggest game of all time
Before Grand Theft Auto 5's first teaser trailer hit in November 2011, gamers were busy speculating about where 5 might be headed. San Andreas was the bookies' favourite, but some felt a return to Vice City was on the cards. Others thought we might even see Rockstar reclaim the streets of London.
However it doesn't take a lot of roaming around GTA 5's map to see why it was important to revisit Vinewood. San Andreas had plenty more to give, and Rockstar had plenty more love to give it. But when faced with putting down the first brick, where do you choose to begin? Continue reading...
The five phones that EVERYBODY loved
At least one of these phones brought a smile to your face
There was a time when phones used to be a bit different from each other. Buyers used to have choices that extended a little further than whether they'd like their featureless new rectangle to run iOS or Android, with the phones of old having quirkier appearances and more unpredictable features.
We miss the days when phones weren't all homogenised into the same form factor by the one huge factory in China that makes everything, so here are the five finest phones that made us love them by being different and proud of it. Continue reading...
Destination everywhere: TomTom maps out the future
TomTom talks Google Glass, wearable tech and its latest mission to make things simple again
Earlier this year, TomTom presented the world with its very own fork in the road. The company, known mainly for its in-car sat nav devices, announced that it would be venturing into the lucrative arena of wearable tech with the launch of the TomTom Runner, its own sports watch.
This isn't a sideline for TomTom, but a sector of the market that is now seen as on a par with its personal navigation devices (PNDs). This marks a significant change in a company that was once known for simply getting you from A to B.
TomTom now wants to be seen as the company that can 'get you where you want to be', whether that be in terms of location or physical fitness. Either way, it's an opportunistic helping hand. Continue reading...
This week's hottest reviews...
Apple iPhone 5S
Faster, new camera and a clever fingerprint reader
The iPhone 5S: a phone that looks like the iPhone 5, but goes so much further under the hood. Is that going to be enough to impress the baying hoardes?
We've been here before, of course: the iPhone 'S' conundrum. The new phone comes along, taking the shell of the previous model, adds some new bits and pieces, and then claims to be an entirely new phone.
Which it is, of course. But also isn't. But mostly is. It's a move that only Apple can pull off with any kind of conviction: the notion that it can take the same chassis, have a little tinker, throw in a new CPU, slightly better battery and camera, and call it an all-conquering device.
But then again, such is the clamour to know all about it, is that such a bad move? There are literally millions of people the world over who can't wait to see what the next handset from Apple will be, and there was no surprise with the iPhone 5S. iPhone 5S review
Apple iPhone 5C
It's a cheaper iPhone, not a cheap iPhone
The iPhone 5C marks a new era in Apple's mobile onslaught, as the Cupertino-based firm finally breaks rank from premium design and price by offering up a device which is slightly more affordable. Slightly being the key word there.
Before you start getting excited about the potential of a "cheap iPhone", be warned that the iPhone 5C is no mid-range Android rival, because with prices starting a £469 ($549, AU$739) for the a 16GB SIM-free handset you're still talking quite a lot of money. iPhone 5C review
The features you'll love and the flaws you won't
iOS 7 is the biggest change to Apple's mobile OS since Steve Jobs changed his mind and allowed third party apps onto the iPhone.
Where previous iOS updates were largely a case of install-and-get-on-with-it, iOS 7 takes a bit more getting used to.
Don't worry, though: Apple isn't hurling babies out with the bathwater here. The iOS we know and largely love is still there, but it's been given one hell of a makeover. iOS 7 review
Perfect plasma sweet spot is a triumph of trickle-down tech
Who said plasma was dead? While most brands concentrate on selling us edge LED-lit TVs – even Panasonic – there's nothing like a pricey plasma to remind us of why flat TVs caught on in the first place.
Following in the wake of its barn-storming 'reference' flagship & step-down plasmas, the 60-inch TX-P60ZT65 and 50-inch TX-P50VT65, the much cheaper TX-P50GT60 has a lot to live up to. Or is this the ultimate trickle-down TV? Panasonic TX-P50GT60 review
