Windows Central reviews the next awesome Android 2-in-1!

A beautiful, ambitious 2-in-1 from Lenovo.

OK, OK, that title isn’t entirely true, but it’s half true. See, our friends at Windows Central have one of the first reviews out for what we thought was one of the more interesting announcements at IFA — the Lenovo Yoga Book. While, naturally, they are reviewing the Windows 10 version, we’re excited about the form factor, safe in the knowledge that it will soon be released running a modified  [Read More…]

MrMobile reviews the smartwatch on steroids — Casio’s WSD-F10

There’s something about summer. The fresh air. The hot sun. And the ability to dive up to 50 meters with your MIL-STD-810G smartwatch.

In his latest video, MrMobile reviews the Casio Smart Outdoor Watch — also known as the WSD-F10 — an Android Wear smartwatch that can go pretty much anywhere, and withstand pretty much anything. While it lacks some key fitness features, like heart rate and GPS, it has everything a hiker — or diver — could want,  [Read More…]

HTC Vive reviews are in, and create a fantastic place to compete

Despite the constant stream of rumors that Valve was working on VR behind closed doors, HTC seemed like an unlikely partner for this sort of project. Over the last year we’ve seen the HTC Vive go from damned  [Read More…]

Oculus Rift reviews are in, and not exactly what you’d imagine

It’s Oculus Rift Day, and that means you have some reading to do if VR is your thing.

If you’ve been following the development of the now Facebook-owned Oculus Rift, today is a big day.

iPhone SE and iPad Pro 9.7 — two big reviews on two smaller devices

A couple reviews this week worth checking out from our cousins at iMore.

First up is the iPhone SE. It looks exactly like the 4-inch iPhone 5, only with upgraded internals. Do the price and smaller size make it worth it?

And there’s also the smaller iPad Pro 9.7. It’s like the 12-inch iPad Pro, only not 12 inches. Smaller. Diminutive, even. But is it still “pro”?

Two good reads that are worth reading twice. Enjoy!

iMore reviews the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus!

It’s the season for reviews — you might have noticed that we’ve gone through a bunch in the last few weeks — and today our pals at iMore are dropping their yearly opuses. And they’re even more of interest to us this year with Samsung’s recent shift to metal. (To say nothing of the metal phones we’ve had before it.)

So pour yourself a drink, kick up your feet and give ’em a gander.
