PROS
  • Truly spectacular image quality
  • Impressive brightness for OLED
  • WebOS interface is clean and simple
  • Sleek, stylish design
CONS
  • Audio quality lacks depth
  • Stand isn't included in the box
  • Stand puts TV on an angle

This is a TV designed to be shown off. Whether you watch movies, sports or play video games, this TV will show at its best.


GoPro HERO 11 Black

GoPro HERO 11 Black Review: Compact brilliance
Small, lightweight, waterproof and capable of epic video, the GoPro HERO 11 Black is an exceptional camera for all scenarios, not just action sports.

Performance
9.5
PROS
  • Exceptional video quality
  • New sensor lets you create landscape and portrait video exports from one shot.
  • Image stabilisation is insane
  • Huge range of accessories and mounts
CONS
  • Battery life won't last more than about an hour
  • Quik app pushes GoPro subscription relentlessly
  • Can be hard to open the battery compartment

This tiny camera action camera records exceptional video in a unique 8:7 aspect ratio, which can then be effortlessly cropped to 16:9 for YouTube or 9:16 for TikTok.

The dual screens make it easy to frame your shots, while the controls could not be easier via the two buttons or the rear touchscreen.

The only real challenge is battery life, but with extra batteries easy to buy and affordable, it is easily overcome for even the most active videographer.

Whether you want to create wild action videos or just create content for social media, this is an incredibly well-rounded option.

PROS
  • Sleek, lightweight design
  • Screen looks gorgeous
  • Intelligent software
CONS
  • Stand is an extra expense
  • You still draw with your palms when using the stylus
  • Can't manage screen settings without software

Designed in Australia, the Espresso Displays 15 Touch portable monitor offers exceptional performance and portability.

Measuring just 5.33mm thick, it connects to your laptop with a USB-C cable and offers dual-screen productivity anywhere you go, pulling power from your laptop.

It’s also a touchscreen, bringing touch controls to Macs.

But the real hero here is the lightweight versatility. You can carry it with you anywhere and use it for anything from spreadsheets to gaming.


Apple iPhone 15 Pro

Apple iPhone 15 Pro review: Exceptional
Apple created a powerhouse of a phone with something for everybody, from the brilliant camera to the intuitive software.

PROS
  • Looks and feels great
  • Exceptional camera
  • Action button works well
  • Incredible performance
CONS
  • USB-C shift will take time to adjust
  • Battery life is good, but not great
  • Action button can only do one thing

Apple’s annual smartphone update isn’t filled with too many surprises any more. But the iPhone 15 Pro still managed to pleasantly surprise us with just how refined an experience it offered.

From the stunning photos from the camera to the powerhouse of a processor, there is a huge amount to appreciate in this phone.

The shift to USB-C is almost the most insignificant upgrade, while the dedicated Action button will prove to become more useful as time goes on.

It is, without a doubt, the best iPhone ever released, which is why it deserves its place in the BTTR Hall of Fame.
