Jorge Velez - Roman Birds Music Album Reviews

Inspired by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, this five-track ambient wonder finds the New York producer letting pulses and motifs overlap until the tracks resemble the inside of a lava lamp.
Jorge Velez has long been prolific, but that’s been especially true in the past few years. Like many underground electronic musicians, the New York producer has taken advantage of the internet’s self-publishing opportunities—in particular, the direct-to-fans platform Bandcamp—to sidestep label gatekeepers, streaming services, and crowded retailers. (Velez’s Bandcamp page currently numbers 26 releases.) Velez first gained recognition a dozen years ago with blippy disco derivatives for labels like Italians Do It Better, but his output has gradually become more esoteric and inward-looking. He’s still capable of ebullient club tracks, as last year’s excellent Forza attests, but many of his long, undulating machine jams sound like late-night missives to himself.

Nokia 7 Plus Confirmed: Release Date, Price & Specification

Nokia 7 Plus Confirmed: Release Date, Price & Specification

Nokia has announced its Nokia 7 Plus at MWC 2018, a mid-range Android phone that will go on sale in April at €399 (around £350).

A larger version of the China-only Nokia 7, the Nokia 7 Plus features an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 6in full-HD+ 18:9 display primed for entertainment.


A good-looking device, available in Black/Copper and White/Copper, the Nokia 7 Plus has slim bezels that allow it to be operated in a single hand and to squeeze comfortably into a pocket. The body is built from a single block of 6000 series aluminium with copper edges and six layers of ceramic-feel paint. A fingerprint scanner is found on the rear.



Running Android One out of the box, which is for all intents and purposes vanilla Android 8.1 Oreo but with timely software updates (handled by Google itself) and minimal bloatware, it offers a pure Android experience and monthly security updates. New AI features will be added in Q2 2018, Nokia told us during our briefing.

The camera is a highlight, a dual-lens Zeiss model with 12Mp, 1.4um pixels, an f/1.75 aperture and a dual-tone LED flash. The second lens is a 13Mp telephoto model with 2x optical zoom. You'll find a Pro camera mode (as seen in the Nokia 1020) and a Portrait mode for which you can add or modify light sources. Around the front is a 16Mp Zeiss Super Pixel camera that can combine four pixels into one using adaptive sensor tech.

Excellent photography capabilities are paired with pro audio, with three mics enabling surround-sound recording.


The Nokia 7 Plus supports fast-charging over USB-C, and offers two-day life from its 3800mAh battery.

Apple iPad Pro 2018 vs Microsoft Surface Pro 6

Apple’s latest iPad Pros are a very tempting purchase, but should you stick with the tried-and-tested Surface Pro from Microsoft? We help you decide which tablet to buy.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 Or Apple iPad Pro 11in (2018)? Two very competent 2-in-1s, one running Windows 10, the other iOS 12. For many this difference alone will inform the final choice, but both are top-notch tablets. 

Huawei P Smart 2019 Review

Huawei has updated its budget Android phone for 2019. It’s faster and better than before, but should you buy it? Read our review to find out.
Should I Buy The Huawei P Smart 2019?
The P Smart 2019 is a great upgrade from the 2018 model with a bigger screen and better performance. However, as with the original P Smart, Honor's version is better value.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

LG Gram 17 Review: Hands-on

LG’s Gram 17 was on display at CES 2019 and we got our hands on the ultra-thin, ultra-light device featuring a beautiful 17-inch display
Should I Buy The LG Gram 17?
The Gram 17 is an impressive bit of kit, but it is serving more of a niche audience than it perhaps appears.
A laptop with a display any bigger than 15 is perhaps approaching a point where it struggles to be called ‘portable’ due to it’s raw size. However, if that isn’t something that bothers you, the 17-inch display is fantastic for both working and watching your favourite films or series on.
Everything else aside the Gram is a beautiful, extremely light choice of laptop that manages to pack a lot of power and utility into an incredibly slim, slick package.
