The Samsung Galaxy S5 hit the market last week and V3 was quick to put the new flagship phone through its paces. V3 readers are clearly excited by the device too, with reviews of the phone making it to the top of our list of the most popular articles from the past week.
We gave it the standalone treatment, then we pitted the Galaxy S5 against the iPhone 5S, from the firm's arch nemesis Apple. You can see our video of this head-to-head review below.
Elsewhere, security concerns dominated the headlines with the discovery of the Heartbleed secure sockets layer (SSL) flaw, which posed huge risks to web users of major sites such as Google, Facebook and Amazon.
Security gurus such as Bruce Schneier also weighed in on the matter, calling it a ‘catastrophe’ for the tech world, and no doubt V3 readers were eager to find out what it meant for them, and how to deal with the fallout.
Meanwhile, our hands-on review of the Windows 8.1 Update was also popular, as users of Microsoft’s operating system find out what the latest update will bring and the firm continues to refine the platform that has so divided its customer base.
Finally, Raspberry Pi also hit the headlines as it continues to expand its portfolio with the unveiling of a new, smaller unit aimed at the business market.
