Akaso EK7000 Pro review

Cameras are everywhere. They’ve gotten smaller and better with time and we routinely have them out as part of our social life. Hell, they’re in our phones now to the tune of two, three, or four at a time.

Pictures of cats and plants is nice and all, but  [Read More…]

Bose QuietComfort 35 II review

The Bose QuietComfort 35 II is the sequel the previous QuietComfort 35 series I. The new model has evolved with a dedicated button for Google Assistant, but what else has it got going for it?

Design

There isn’t much you can do in the world of headphones to make your design unique or stand out. The Bose QC35 II hit all the right notes. These are a mostly plastic build with some accents of leather or memory foam. This makes  [Read More…]

Logitech Harmony Express review: Why, Alexa, why?

Logitech is the king of the universal remote control experience. But improving the setup experience doesn’t eliminate the limitations of voice commands.

There are three distinct parts that make up the total experience of a remote control.

First, there’s the matter of setup — getting the remote to properly talk to your TV and whatever is connected to it. Then there’s the matter of how it works once that part is handled. The third part is the remote  [Read More…]

Spigen Silicone Fit Galaxy S10 case review: A grippy, durable dust magnet

Get ready to clean this thing all the time.

For quite some time now here at AC, I’ve been a big advocate of thin, lightweight cases. I’m all about protecting my phone from daily wear and tear, but if a case adds too much bulk or weight, I’m not interested.

As such, I was pretty excited to check out the Spigen Silicone Fit. This is one of the slimmer cases Spigen makes for the S10, and despite  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy S10 review

The Samsung Galaxy S10 is one of the first big flagships to hit the shelves in 2019. This year Samsung decided to grace us with not two, but three different Galaxy S models. And that’s not counting the 5G version about to arrive.

Below you’ll find our review of the phone that sits in between the Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10 Plus.

Design

The Galaxy S10 marks the biggest change to the design of the S series since the launch  [Read More…]

Huawei P30 Pro review: A long-distance relationship

How do you definitively say something subjective, like the quality of a photo, or song, or piece of art, is the best? Our culture has been trying to do it for years, rewarding and awarding the most popular or acclaimed tenets of each category, as fact. Because people like certainty, and they increasingly rely on experts to tell them what to watch, read, listen to — and buy.

In the smartphone world, the iPhone has benefited most from that  [Read More…]

LG G8 review: Almost there, yet again

Another year, another phone that gets most of the way to the competition and stumbles in critical moments.

LG’s modus operandi since 2016 has been to steadily iterate on its flagship phone platforms. Its seemingly low level of commitment to pushing the envelope with its top-tier smartphones comports with its earnings: the company’s mobile division isn’t making money, and what chance it has of doing so lies in releasing low- and mid-tier devices through deep carrier partnerships rather  [Read More…]

Vacation Simulator Review: Nearly endless wonder

You, human, are now ready to VACATION.

In the pantheon of VR games, Job Simulator is essentially royalty. It’s one of the most popular VR games by a considerable margin, due in no small part to the sheer volume of things you can do in it. Owlchemy Labs worked tirelessly to anticipate every random thing someone might want to do in this game. If you want to make a soup out of apple juice and egg shells,  [Read More…]

Logitech Harmony Elite review

After becoming hooked on Logitech’s Harmony Companion remote, I wondered, what could the Elite version offer? For over double the price, surely it must offer something significantly better. What I found was, in some cases yes, but not always.

Design

The Harmony Elite comes with one remote, one hub, two IR blasters, and is limited to 15 total devices. I much preferred the thinner design of the Harmony Elite remote. The bottom has a soft touch grip and despite it  [Read More…]

Bitwarden review

Between the number of shopping sites, streaming services, and social media accounts the average person has accumulated more passwords than they know what to do with.

If you’re practicing good password protocols, that means each one is unique and consists of random characters making it impossible to remember one password, let alone dozens. That’s where password managers such as Bitwarden come to the rescue.

Developer: 8bit Solutions LLC

Price: Free/subscription plans

What’s so great about Bitwarden?

Since its release, Bitwarden  [Read More…]
