Hybrid smartwatches tend to be for consumers who want a stylish wrist watch with months of battery life, but which can keep them up-to-date with calls, notifications on their phone and their daily activity. The Misfit Command does exactly this but manages to cram slightly more information on its face than some of its simpler rivals. This is a hybrid ...

Motorola’s G series has gone from strength to strength, which is a real achievement considering the first phone in the line, from 2013, set a new standard for affordable phones, and racked up sales to match.

Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM | Art review

There are several wide-angle prime and zoom lenses in Sigma’s ‘Art’ line of Global Vision optics.

Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM review

Canon own-brand lenses have been facing ever-stiffer competition of late, especially from Sigma and Tamron. Portrait primes for full-frame portraiture are no exception, as there are two excellent, recently launched 85mm lenses from the independents.
