Review Roundup: Nokia's Lumia 1020, Vodafone 4G and Canon 70D tested


We've been waiting for the Nokia Lumia 1020 for a long time. Its ground-breaking Pureview sensor packs in 41 million pixels, which it uses cleverly both to zoom and to remove noise from images. This is the ultimate smartphone camera and possibly the future of all such devices.

Since its launch last year EE has been the only 4G provider in the UK, but now the other big networks are joining in. This week we tested the Vodafone Red 4G-ready service to see if it can deliver on the promise of fast mobile data. The service comes with freebies including Sky Sports and Spotify Premium.

The Canon EOS 70D is the company's latest enthusiast DSLR. It has a few minor niggles but it's still a consummate all-rounder - taking incredible-looking pictures without the incredible pricing of a full-frame DSLR and lenses.

With the Zenbook Prime Touch UX31A Asus has taken one of last year's best Ultrabooks and added a touchscreen to round it off. There's no Haswell processor unfortunately but this is still a brilliantly designed laptop.

Finding space for a speaker bar in front of your TV can be tricky, so the Orbitsound SB60 airSound Base takes a different approach by sitting beneath the stand itself. Sound quality is good and there's a built-in subwoofer too.

If you don't like the idea of being tied to Amazon for your book purchases then the ePUB compatible Kobo Aura will let you shop around. It's a great value eBook reader with a built-in reading light and so competes directly with Kindle's Paperwhite.
