This week’s big launches include the Motorola Moto Edge 30 global edition, the Poco F4 GT and Virgin Media’s new Stream box. It’s an action packed show, kiddies, so grab some snacks, pour yourself a pint of something horrendously strong and settle in for a spurt of tech news (and horse paste).
The Motorola Edge 30 has finally launched globally and is coming to the UK for under £400 in May. You get a 50MP camera which is apparently well good (according to Moto of course), plus a 120Hz pOLED screen and a skinny design.
Alternatively, for 599 Euros you can bag a super-powered gaming smartphone in the Poco F4 GT. My full unboxing and hands-on review is live right now, as is my Poco Watch coverage.
Last up, Virgin Media’s Stream box allows you to watch Netflix, Disney Plus and other services on any TV with HDMI, plus you get a discount on your subscriptions. It’s available now for Virgin broadband customers.
