The new iPhones are just big enough upgrades to make people care

The only ‘feature’ that matters is that it’s still an iPhone.

Another year, another Apple announcement that was somehow both hyped and eventually disappointing. The star of the show, per usual, was the latest iPhone: the interestingly named iPhone 11 Pro. Building on the iPhone XS from last year, Apple made its typical move of slightly refreshing the hardware, adding a few features, and claiming its revolutionary status.

Look at the slide above from the launch event.  [Read More…]

Google’s not getting nearly enough credit for Stadia’s pricing

No one ever said this would be the Netflix of games.

On June 6, Google held its first Stadia Connect. After initially announcing Stadia back in February during GDC, this is where we learned what games will be coming to Stadia, what kind of internet connection is required, and — most importantly — how much it costs.

When Stadia was first unveiled, a lot of speculation arose surrounding how Google would monetize the platform. It was unclear  [Read More…]

OnePlus 7 Pro India review: Fastest is no longer enough

OnePlus’ most ambitious phone to date gets a lot right, but the camera continues to be a letdown.

If you look at the phones OnePlus launched over the last two years, there’s a clear pattern. The OnePlus 5 and 5T ushered in a new design aesthetic that was much more modern, and last year’s OnePlus 6 and 6T built on that vision by introducing new materials and upgraded hardware.

Design is a key area of focus for  [Read More…]

These 7 exclusives are reason enough to get a PS4

There are a lot of fantastic games you can play on a PlayStation 4, but there are only a handful of exclusives that are truly worthy of being system-sellers. Console exclusives are rarer these days, but the PS4 still has games that make you say, “You know what? I’m willing to buy a PS4 just to be able to play that specific game.” The games featured below are some of the best of the best and definitely warrant a console  [Read More…]

A few minutes with the new Honor 20 Pro was more than enough

This phone sure looks familiar. Can’t quite put my finger on where I’ve seen it before…

Where the Honor View series exists as the “flagship” brand designed to push boundaries and appeal to people who want to live on the bleeding edge, the numbered series of phones aims to put the Honor logo in as many pockets as possible. That means cutting a couple of corners while maintaining a focus on the things Honor thinks its fans  [Read More…]

The Pixel 3a isn’t the rebirth of the Nexus line, but it’s close enough

‘Nexus’ is never coming back, but some of the line’s best features are alive and well in the Pixel 3a.

It’s been two and a half years since we broke the story that the Nexus brand was going away to be replaced with an entirely new brand and vision — what ended up becoming the Pixel. With it came an equally dramatic pricing change: Nexuses had slowly increased in price over the last few generations, but the  [Read More…]

Eight hours with Assassins Creed Odyssey wasn’t enough

No stilettos, no cloaks, and no clue what is happening in the modern world right now.

Kassandra is one hit from death, her third in my attempt to defeat the Athenian hero sent to defeat the Spartan incursion on Megaris. As my sweaty hands tighten around the controller she dodges left, parries an incoming attack, and delivers a devastating kick which sends a man flat onto his back. This moment I’ve earned for us gets spent running  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Mi Band 3 brings enough great features for the price (review)

Xiaomi seemed to have a sleeper hit on their hands with the Mi Band 2; a smartwatch/fitness tracker that lacked several high-end features, but was offered at a price (about $ 20 US) low enough to tempt a whole lot of people to give it a try.

Including our household- I personally bought one for my wife, who to that point was not a fitness stats-based person in the least. While she was appreciative but hesitant at first, she quickly got  [Read More…]

The BlackBerry KEY2 is in a market with no competitors — but is that enough to make it sell?

It’s the only modern smartphone with a hardware keyboard, but I’m not sure that’s enough.

I’ve been using my BlackBerry KEY2 for about a week and a half now, and I haven’t been doing so begrudgingly or out of any sort of obligation — I’ve continued to carry it by choice. I’m not here to talk about my personal takes on the KEY2 as a device — that’ll come later in a specific review, and Daniel wrote  [Read More…]

Android Things is the smart home’s saving grace and it can’t come soon enough

Android Things could be what it takes to make all these smart things be simple things, too.

In an article gushing over my Logitech Harmony remote I mentioned that I had a horrible mish-mash of smart “stuff” in my house and tying it all together was a pain. That prompted a conversation where someone reached out to me with a really great question that I had a tough time answering: Where should I start if I want  [Read More…]
