5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

On board, you have free turn-by-turn satnav thanks to Google Maps' latest update, which is not to be sniffed at. Yes, route planning and on a 2.8in screen is far from ideal, and the system is a bit crude, but it got me to an obscure part of Bolton in good order.

Turn-by-turn satnav is built into the Mini

At 3.2Mp with auto-focus and an LED light, the camera spec isn't bad on paper but in the real world things are pretty grim. Colour saturation and light balance are both poor and definition goes over a cliff edge at the edges of the image. Shutter response time is abysmal too leading to many a blurry shot. Nor did the autofocus system impress. As the test shots demonstrate, it suffices for impromptu snaps but little else.
