Sennheiser PRESENCE wireless headset review

It’s funny that the “phone” part of “smartphone” has somewhat gotten lost. Many of us prefer typing to communicate rather than frightful human interaction.

LG G5 Review: modular marvel or bold blunder?

2016 has so far been a year of impressive flagship phones with perhaps the most unique of the bunch being the LG G5. LG was coming off a year of success with two wonderful flagships (the G4 and V10) receiving rave reviews. Many speculated that the G5 would be a fusion of the two devices – stealing the

Fitbit Blaze review

As the company’s first take on the traditional every day watch design, the Fitbit Blaze falls somewhere between a smartwatch and an activity tracker. On paper the wearable matches up with the likes of Samsung’s Gear Fit family and the Withings Activite Pop. Running a proprietary OS, the Blaze technically offers less practicality and flexibility

Sony Xperia X Performance review: 80% of a great phone

Sony’s new line of smartphones gets a spec boost in the Xperia X Performance, but do a few tweaks to the formula justify its $ 699 cost?

The quick take

The Sony Xperia X Performance is a good phone, but it not only fails to justify its $ 150 premium over its cheaper counterpart, it also falls down as a flagship, too. Too few improvements over the Z5 series, and some frustrating screen responsiveness issues, have  [Read More…]

LeEco Le Max 2 review: Welcome to the age of USB-C audio

The LeEco Le Max 2 offers a lot for its asking price, but USB-C audio is going to frustrate a lot of users.

Quick take:

The Le Max 2 is the company’s flagship for 2016, and builds on what we’ve seen with the Le Max. The screen is a more manageable 5.7 inches (from its predecessor’s 6.4 inches), and a 2.15GHz Snapdragon 820 SoC ensures that you won’t see any slowdowns in day-to-day usage. The 21MP  [Read More…]

ASUS ZenFone Max review: Lasts long, and that’s that

The quick take

The maiden ASUS ZenFone Max launched last year was not perfect, but it was a standout performer in the affordable smartphone segment with its stellar battery life. The company recently launched a refresh with upgraded internals and identical design – just months after the first one went on sale.

Samsung S-View Flip Cover review for Galaxy S7 edge
