Hot Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Tablets, Smartphones, Laptops, and Systems

It's hard to believe this year is nearly over. It feels as if our holiday gift guides are being assembled at an ever more rapid pace. Perhaps that has to do with the non-stop innovation in the tech sector, and our insatiable desire to absorb as much technical data as possible. Each year, the leaps in processing power and graphics performance,...

HTC One A9 Review: Unlocked With Android Marshmallow

HTC has been accused of copying Apple’s iPhone 6/6s design with its latest smartphone, the One A9. That’s not exactly a fair accusation however, since the iPhone 6 has many of the same design aesthetics as some of HTC’s previous One flagship phones, particularly the One M7 which launched in 2013. Regardless of where the design inspiration...

Motorola Droid Turbo 2 And Droid Maxx 2 Review: Shatterproof And Value Android

Not long ago, we kicked the tires on Motorola’s well-received Moto X Pure Edition. The smartphone impressed us with its Quad HD display and overall build quality, as well as its $399 price tag, which places it more reasonably below the lofty prices of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Apple iPhone 6S lines. Today, we’re taking a look at two new smartphones...

Benchmarking Intel's Skylake-U Series Core i7 Processor For Laptops

Intel's 6th Generation Skylake family of Core processors has been available for some time now. We previously gave you a look at the desktop variant that Intel initially rolled out.

Huawei Watch Review: A Premium Android Wear Timepiece

One of the sharpest, classiest, most alluring Android Wear smartwatch yet has arrived, and it's manufactured by a company that many American consumers may not be familiar with. The Huawei Watch is just about as good as it gets for a smartwatch currently. The reason? It's a watch first, and a smartwatch second. For those clamoring for a timepiece...

Best Tablets Of 2015, A Buyer's Guide

There’s no doubt that tablets have revolutionized the way many of us consume media. Tablets on the market today have developed to fill many niche categories and are beginning to truly rival notebooks in terms of raw power. We see everything from the venerable iPads, to the dime a dozen upcoming Amazon Kindles, to a wide variety...

Amazon Fire TV (2015) Second Generation Review

Not long ago, Amazon announced a new Fire TV with a handful of new and upgraded features including 4K Ultra HD video and Alexa functionality. Although the original Fire TV which we reviewed last year had voice capabilities, those voice controls were limited to searching for content and applications. With Alexa built in, the second-generation...

Logitech Harmony Elite Review: The Ultimate Universal Remote?

On the surface, there's nothing particularly glamorous about a universal remote. It's simply a device that controls multiple electronic gadgets, like your TV and Blu-ray player, so you don't have to keep track of and juggle multiple remotes. No big deal, right? If that's what you think, then you haven't encountered Logitech's Harmony line.Like...

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 8 Review: A Budget-Friendly Android Slate

It may be a bit too early to be shopping for the holidays just yet, but doing a little research never hurts, particularly if you’re in the market for a new mobile device. Tablet makers are continually in the process of slimming down their devices and boosting battery life, even in the entry-level space, where products like the Android-based...

Apple iPhone 6s Plus Review: More Of A Good Thing

You don't need a crystal ball to figure out Apple will release a new iPhone handset every year. It's been doing it since the original came out in 2007, and starting with the iPhone 3G, Apple's naming convention has consisted of introducing a new model number every two years, with "s" variants in between. There was the iPhone 3GS in 2009, iPhone...

Dell XPS 13 (2015) Ultrabook Review, It's Hot Hardware

Utlrabook designs just keep getting thinner, more powerful and more capable with each iteration of the various platforms on the market. Dell's XPS line of ultrabooks has always done relatively well in the arena, with some notable break-out features, like composite carbon fiber construction, that helped them stand out in a sea of offerings...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 Review: Multitasking On Android

If you want to sell a tablet to the masses -- an increasingly difficult thing to do with tablet shipments now on the decline, according to International Data Corporation -- the go-to strategy is to pitch a vibrant display and boast about its thin and light design. Everything else is secondary, including hardware specs and benchmark performance,...

Moto 360 2nd Gen Smartwatch Review: Moto Make It Your Own

Technology moves quickly, but when it comes to smartwatches, things seem to be moving more rapidly than usual. We published our Moto 360 review early last year and here we are merely half a year later testing the second generation of that device. In many ways, the original Moto 360 felt like the hero device for Android Wear. Google still...

Motorola Moto X Pure Edition Review: Straight-Up Premium Android

Apple and Samsung have already launched their latest flagship devices for 2015, and now, Motorola is taking its turn. For the third year in a row, a new Moto X has arrived that's built upon the successes of the original. There's no mistaking the design -- visual cues that created the silhouette of the original still remain on the Moto X Pure...

Huawei P8 lite Review: Unlocked And Affordable

Unlocked smartphones are attractive to customers who are looking for ways to avoid a long-term contract with a carrier, replace a broken phone, or travel overseas. If you’ve shopped for an unlocked phone, you’ll likely have come across a company called Huawei. Huawei ships phones worldwide, though they aren't very well known here in the United...

ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 Z580CA Intel-Powered Premium Android Tablet Review

Competing with Apple in the mobile space isn't rocket science, it's just a matter of sticking to a proven formula for success -- build a premium device with superior specs than the one Apple is selling, inject it with Android, and then undercut the iWhatever in price. That's not to say Apple is the only premium slate target of opportunity...

Logitech MX Master Wireless Mouse Review: Masterful Precision Control

Logitech's Performance MX Mouse series has long since been a favorite with enthusiasts and workstation professionals alike. Introduced to the market several years ago, it was high time Logitech revisited and refreshed their flagship general purpose mouse with the latest technologies and creature comforts. And boy what revamp this is. Whether...

Samsung Galaxy Note5 And Galaxy S6 Edge+ Review: More Of A Good Thing

Samsung has done very well with a couple of key design elements in their previous smartphone offerings, curved displays and the larger format Galaxy Note line. The Galaxy Note series has done especially well for the brand, with a user base that doesn't mind a bit more heft in exchange for more screen real estate, as well as other unique functionality...

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501 Review: Beauty And Brawn

Love it or hate it, Apple's MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines have remained a watermark for which the majority of notebook manufacturers aspire to, whether it's enthusiast gaming companies like Razer with their Blade, or mainstream vendors like Dell via their outstanding XPS 13. Enter Asus. They've utilized their ZenBook line to...

If your kiddos are griping about how soon they start back to school (or, if you are heading that way yourself, begrudgingly), it's probably high time you took inventory.
