I have not bought an e-reader until now because I do most of my reading in the bathtub. I recently saw an advert for the Kobo Aura H20, claiming that it was waterproof.

Is this true? Does this feature make it thicker or more difficult to handle than other e-readers? Is it still a fast and responsive device?

I am a university student, and I have weekly readings that I need to do while on the move. I would like a portable device that would allow me to read files in both. Epub and.PDF formats. Most importantly, I would like to be able to modify these texts, such as underlining important bits, or taking notes about difficult passages. Is there an e-reader that does this, or am I better off buying a tablet?

I would like to update my Samsung Galaxy Note, but I cannot decide if I should move to the new iPhone 6 Plus.

Is there a significant difference between the two devices? How do they compare on some basic functions (i.e. display resolution, power, camera…)? And, ultimately, which one is the best at what it does?

Hello, I finally decided on investing on an e-reader. There are so many choices available, however, that I am finding the task somewhat daunting. Price is of no particular issue in this case. I would like someone to point me to the best e-reader I can buy.

Which one offers more readability, more functions and connectivity?

I would like to buy an e-reader and, even though most of them are similar, some offer unique features. I am not exactly sure how important these features are. I am buying an e-reader because bright screens give me a headache.

Do luminescent screens on e-readers induce the same fatigue to the eyes? Are WiFi and 3G internet connections useful, considering most of my collection is already sorted and waiting to be uploaded? What is the most important feature I should look for in an e-reader?

My mobile data company is pushing me to buy a new phone with a 4G plan. This would be significantly more expensive, and I won’t have unlimited data of internet use. However, they guarantee that I would reach an ADSL speed on my phone, which would be quite handy. I still remain unsure, however.

Is it worth it? Should I wait for the prices to go down a bit? Is the increased speed really noticeable?

I already own a tablet and a smartphone. Since both of them are getting old, I was thinking of swapping them for a Samsung Galaxy Note 4. From what I read online this device will allow me the wide screen and functionality of a tablet with the portability of a phone.

Is this true? Is a phone so big actually practical? Is a tablet so small usable? How does it compare in terms of functions with a smartphone and a tablet?

I would like to buy a smart watch, but I am not sure which one I should choose between the Samsung Galaxy Gear and the Sony Smartwatch 2. I am an Android user and I would like it to interact with my Galaxy S4 phone and, ideally, with my Nexus Tablet.

How do the Samsung Galaxy Gear and the Sony Smartwatch 2 compare in terms of connectivity, support, and flexibility of use?

My old analogue portable TV is broken, so I need to buy a new one. Unfortunately, there does not seem to be a huge market for this product, even though the models I saw seemed quite advanced, at least in looks. My problem is that I am not sure how to choose a portable TV. Battery life is important, but apart from that?

What makes a portable TV a good portable TV? What should I stay away from? What is the best model in the market so far?

I am thinking of buying a Kindle, but I am not sure I understand how these three models differ. I only understand that the Kindle is the cheapest and the Kindle Voyager is the most expensive. I have never used an e-reader, so I don’t know if some of the features listed in descriptions are useful.

Which one of these three delivers more when compared to the cost?
