Review: Get Packed on Google Stadia is an enjoyable, but shallow experience

Get ready to move out.

Google Stadia is a cloud game streaming service that recently got a launch exclusive called Get Packed. Get Packed is a couch co-op experience all about moving out of your apartment. Oddly enough, it manages to capture the chaos by using physics-based controls for up to four players. If you love games like Octodad and QWOP, you should check this one out.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite review: You should just buy an iPad

An excellent value that comes with a big catch.

When’s the last time you thought about buying an Android tablet? If you’re like me, it’s probably been a hot minute. The market for Android tablets used to be ripe with competition, with plentiful choice available whether you wanted something cheap, ultra-powerful, or just plain weird (I’m looking at you, Sony Tablet P).

In 2020, Android tablets just aren’t what they used to be. The market is mostly  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Mi 10 review: Falling just short of greatness

The Mi 10 has a lot to offer, but the 108MP camera alone isn’t enough to give it an edge in this segment.

When you think of Xiaomi in India, the first thing that comes to mind is its Redmi phones. Although Redmi is now a standalone entity, Xiaomi and Redmi are synonymous in India, and that has been the way for the last five years. While Xiaomi is a major smart home player in China —  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro review: Outstanding 108MP camera, annoying software

Xiaomi delivers its best phone yet, but MIUI gremlins from years past continue to plague the Mi 10 Pro.

Xiaomi knows how to make a good phone; after all, it is the fourth-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. But the brand owes its success to the entry-level and budget segments, where it is dominant. Xiaomi also makes flagships in the Mi and the Mi Mix lineups, with the Mi phones in particular aimed at the value flagship  [Read More…]

TCL 10 Series review: A great starting point

TCL is entering the mobile space with two very solid offerings.

In the U.S., TCL is mostly known for its wide range of both affordable and high-end TVs (and for being the manufacturing partner behind BlackBerry’s phones of the last few years). But in 2020, the company is looking to establish itself as a direct contender in the mobile space as well, with three fresh new phones on the way.

Perhaps the most intriguing of the bunch  [Read More…]

Review: Neato Botvac D7 is a powerful vacuum, but it cannot mop your floors

A powerful cleaner that sucks up everything from fur to debris.

There are literally hundreds of robot vacuums on the market right now. Considering that they are a relatively expensive buy, it’s not the easiest thing for the average consumer to compare them against each other. That being the case, it’s hard to really know which devices will actually be good for your home. That’s why I’m so keen on reviewing as many robot vacuums as I  [Read More…]

OnePlus 8 Pro second opinion review: A great phone, but not a flawless one

A proper flagship without the usual compromises — but the execution isn’t perfect.

In our initial round of reviews, I took the lead on the standard OnePlus 8, while Daniel Bader took on the OnePlus 8 Pro. But thankfully, I do have both phones, so I was able to swap over to the 8 Pro to see how it differs from the base model that’s $ 200 less and generally less exciting. The 8 Pro is the  [Read More…]

The Pixel 4a’s camera gets a full review before launch

There’s almost nothing secret about the Pixel 4a at this point.

What you need to know Google’s Pixel 4a is the upcoming successor to 2019’s Pixel 3a. An early camera review showcases the prowess of the mid-range handset. As expected of Google, the camera is as good as previous Pixel iterations despite lacking a secondary lens.

Google’s Pixel 4a is the company’s upcoming (and much leaked) budget phone for 2020. In typical Google hardware release fashion, we  [Read More…]
