Deal: Buy a Pixelbook, get the Pen for free ($99 value)

Available now through February 1.

Thanks to its stunning design, fast performance, and so much more, the Pixelbook is easily the best Chromebook on the market. It’s not necessarily cheap, but if you’ve got at $ 1000 to spend, it’s awfully hard to be disappointed with the machine.

Towards the end of 2017, Google was running a promotion where you could get $ 100 off the retail price of the Pixelbook and a free Google Home. That  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Redmi 5A review: Unmatched value

Xiaomi is continuing to lead the way when it comes to value in the entry-level segment.

Keeping track of in-store purchases is the final step of measuring effectiveness of online ads.

Google is finally figuring out how to close the most precious link in the loop of online advertising: knowing when someone makes an in-store purchase in response to an online ad.

Moto G5 Plus review: Great value in a tacky shell

Everyone wants the biggest, best, brightest phone to show off in front of their friends (and enemies). Usually, that means the biggest price tag. Enter the Moto G5 Plus, a great smartphone under $ 300 that performs amazingly well (even if it doesn’t look all that great).

I’m Michael Fisher, AKA MrMobile, and I have sometimes found myself reviewing phones twice the price of this that I like half as much. This Moto G5 Plus review should put your  [Read More…]

Moto G5 Plus initial review: The best value on the market

Phones are in an interesting place right now. While we have amazing, feature-rich flagships like the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8 that push the boundaries of what we thought possible, not everyone wants to spend $ 600+ on a phone.

Honor 6X vs. Honor 8: Which offers better value for money?

Does Honor’s new budget contender deliver more bang for your buck, or should you opt for the more expensive Honor phone from late 2016?

Comparing a $ 250 handset to a $ 350-400 one might seem just a little unfair. After all, the more money you pay, the more phone you usually get. So instead, we’re going to try and quantify whether the Honor 6X or Honor 8 delivers the better bang for your buck across four  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Mi Box review: Good price doesn’t mean great value

Xiaomi offers the least expensive full Android TV experience, and it comes with compromises.

The Android TV marketplace is … sparse. Though there are plenty of happy customers out there using the old Nexus Player or the high-end Shield Android TV, there just isn’t a vibrant grouping of choices in the same way you can find an Android phone to fit every want and need. Companies don’t see value in making an Android TV box that isn’t  [Read More…]
