Simplisafe Wireless Home Security Review

Simple to install and very easy to use, Simplisafe is a great home alarm system which is monitored by a security firm that can call out the police on your behalf.
Should I Buy The Simplisafe Wireless Home Security System?
The Simplisafe system couldn’t be easier to self-install, but it does require a monthly subscription which could put some people off. We’d like the option of an external siren, but other than that, it’s a comprehensive smart security system.

OnePlus 5G Phone Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours


OnePlus is working with Qualcomm and EE to ensure it has one of the first 5G phones available in Europe, but when will the 5G OnePlus launch?

OnePlus is going to be one of the first smartphone makers to release a 5G phone in 2019, said co-founder Carl Pei at December's Qualcomm summit. It has been working on 5G since 2016 and has lined up partnerships with both EE - the network operator that pioneered 4G in the UK - and chip maker Qualcomm to ensure it is ready to go with the technology as soon as possible.

But what's particularly interesting for OnePlus fans is that the eventual handset is not going to be the OnePlus 7 - it will be too expensive to fit into the existing product line. And that means we could see two new flagship phones from the company arriving this summer.
When Is The OnePlus 5G Phone Coming Out?
In an interview with CNET Lau confirmed the 5G phone would arrive before the end of May 2019. EE will be the launch partner in the UK.

EE will roll out 5G support to 16 UK cities (10% of its portfolio, serving 25% of its customers) in 2019, starting with Belfast, Birmingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London and Manchester.


How Much Will The OnePlus 5G Phone Cost?
With the company not expecting to see huge sales in 2019 the 5G OnePlus will not be priced for profit. However, it will be significantly more expensive than the current OnePlus 6T because the components necessary for 5G cost more - up to $200-$300 more.

So whereas the OnePlus 6T starts at £499, we could be looking at a price closer to £699 for the 5G OnePlus phone.

5G data plans will also be more expensive than current 4G tariffs.

OnePlus 5G Phone Features And Specifications
OnePlus has already confirmed that its 5G phone will be running the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, which is successor to the 845 seen in the 6T and capable of taking on Apple's most recent A12 Bionic chips.

Not only does it support the faster connectivity standard, which is somewhere between 20- and 100 times faster than 5G in day-to-day use, but the processor is also 45% faster than the older chip in general processing, and 20% faster in graphics.

Lau told CNET that the first 5G phone from OnePlus will use the sub-6GHz spectrum, not the faster millimeter wave technology. Though slower, with peak downloads of 400- to 500Mbps (still significantly faster than 4G), this spectrum is more reliable and can travel longer distances.

A disadvantage of the faster 5G tech is that the extra components required place a heavy burden on the smartphone's design, adding weight and thickness, and OnePlus is keen not to have to compromise here. Instead, the company's 5G phone will look a lot like the OnePlus 6T, complete with a glass frame, waterdrop notch and in-display fingerprint sensor.

WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB Review

If you’re looking for a home storage solution but can’t be bothered sourcing and installing your own disks then the WD My Cloud Mirror is an attractive option at a good price. WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB review.
Should I Buy The WD My Cloud Mirror 4TB?
When it comes to ease of use the WE My Cloud Mirror is hard to beat. Initial setup is very easy and even sorting our remote access is simple too. For sharing music, movies, photos and documents it works a treat and performance is fine. The downside is that you don’t get the huge range of apps that are available for other brands. However, if you prioritise ease of set up and ease of use the WD is worth looking at and with 4 TB of storage included for the price, it’s a great value option.

Drobo's latest NAS starts with the assumption that everyone who buys a NAS box doesn’t start with a full complement of identical hard drives. Here's our Drobo 5N2 review.
Should I buy the Drobo 5N2?
It might be relatively expensive, but the flexible RAID system that can handle multiple drives of different size could be a major cost saving for many users. The performance, build quality and expanding app selection also makes the Drobo 5N2 a highly desirable solution.

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390) Review: Hands-on

The redesigned XPS 13 2-in-1 is finally good enough to really rival Dell's traditional laptops - find out what we thought when it launched at Computex 2019.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 (7390)?
We won't know just how well the new 10nm Intel chips perform until we get the XPS 13 2-in-1 into the office for a proper review, but on paper this looks like a very capable machine. Strong specs combined with the best of Dell's already strong XPS design language mean that not only does this look like a good convertible, it might even dethrone its clamshell cousin from the top of the laptop world.
