MSI GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro Review: A Pascal-Powered Gaming Laptop

A good rule of thumb when purchasing a gaming laptop is to buy one with the fastest GPU you can afford. Unlike desktop PCs, you usually can't rip out the graphics adapter and upgrade to something faster (not in most cases, anyway), so when that once shiny and fast laptop starts feeling a little sluggish, you're looking at dialing down in-game...

LG G5 Review: Ambitious But Unrefined

Now, more than ever, manufacturers are exploring alternative ways to differentiate smartphones. One savior to the oversaturated smartphone market, that is rife with products with similar specifications, may come in the form of modularity.

HP Pavilion x360 13t Review: A Quality Mainstream Convertible Laptop

Mainstream notebooks, laptops, and convertible devices have been significantly refined over the last few generations. The $500-$900 price range generally features laptops that are thin and light, built well, have decent battery life, and deliver solid multimedia experiences. Intel has a stranglehold on the CPUs and graphics in many of these...

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Review: Feature-Packed And Refined

The Galaxy Note line of stylus-equipped Android smartphones have carved a lucrative niche' in the market for Samsung over the years, by catering to users looking for a large format device with additional functionalities and features beyond traditional handsets.

Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus Review: Quality, Budget Android Handsets

Motorola recently launched two new flagship Droid offerings, the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. We really liked them for their ultra-premium design, strong performance, and innovative Moto Mods add-on features. Motorola, however, is ushering in a refresh of their more mainstream, cost-effective Moto G family as well. We last looked at the Moto...

HotHardware 2016 Back-to-School Tech Shopping Guide

Store shelves are packed with fresh pencils, pens, and backpacks. Kids are begging their parents for new clothes and kicks. And teachers are frantically organizing their classrooms in the last few days of summer. It is that time of year again -- back-to-school season is upon us, like it or not. If you are looking to pick up some new tech gear...

NVIDIA Mobile GeForce GTX 10-Series Review: Pascal Notebooks Slay Benchmarks

NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture has been taking the PC graphics market by storm all summer long since its introduction in early May. The Silicon Valley leading-edge semiconductor powerhouse, in addition to lighting up pixels, has been lighting up its balance sheets as well, with strong sales of Pascal-based GeForce, Quadro and Tesla product...

CybertronPC CLX Osiris 14 Gaming Laptop Review

CybertronPC is hoping to hit a sweet spot for gamers with its new 14-inch laptop, the CLX Osiris 14. The system is light and slim for a gaming laptop, but it packs an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M and Intel Skylake quad-core CPU under its hood, so this machine is clearly not messing around. The Osiris 14 is a member of CybertronPC’s CLX...

New Matter MOD-t 3D Printer Review: Low Cost, User-Friendly Creation

3D printers have come a long way since our first round-up review in 2012. This exciting technology has created everything from toys to running shoes, to prostheses for amputees. Is 3D printing, however, practical in a home office or in a classroom use case? The New Matter MOD-t 3D printer claims to be the most user-friendly printer ever and...

Tenda AC15 AC1900 802.11ac Router Review: Affordable AC WiFi Performance

At this point we've reviewed quite a few high-end AC routers, including tri-band routers, flagship dual-band models, and even the latest MU-MIMO devices too. However, the one portion of the market we haven't covered much is the one that exists on the more affordable end of the pricing spectrum. We all know there are quantifiable differences...

Moto Z DROID And Moto Z Force DROID With Moto Mods Review

Last month, the partnership between Motorola and Lenovo seemed to crystalize when the combined company stepped out with its first co-branded smartphone products that will ship here in the United States. Lenovo acquired Motorola's Mobility division from Google a couple of years back, but has rightfully lead with the iconic Moto brand for new...

Samsung Gear Fit2 Review: More Than Just A Fitness Wearable

Wearable devices today generally fall into two categories: fitness trackers or smartwatches. Since many people are looking for different features and functions, the fact that there are so many different devices with varying features is not surprising. Samsung’s latest Gear Fit2 finds itself somewhere between these two primary device categories...

HP Spectre Review: A Thin, Sleek, Nimble Beauty

The race to claim the world's thinnest laptop hasn't always resulted in quality design innovation or utility over slightly more full-figured machines. For example, comparatively, Apple's MacBook Air line looks a little plain-Jane versus some of the thin and light laptops on the market these days, and certainly HP's Spectre line as well. HP...

ASUS ROG Strix GL502VT-GS74 Gaming Laptop Review

ASUS takes gaming seriously. So seriously, in fact, that it has two sub-brands dedicated to hardware for gamers. One is the Republic of Gamers (ROG), a brand ASUS created in 2006 to designate products that deliver "innovative hardcore PC performance," and the other is Strix, a more recent creation that's taken from the ancient Roman and Greek...

The ultrabook market shows no signs of cooling off any time soon. We've recently explored different flavors from all the top vendors including HP's Spectre x360 15t, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga, ASUS's Zenbook UX-305CA and our reigning Editor's Choice in Dell's XPS 13. There's a lot to love about these premium thin and light machines. And though...

Alienware 13 OLED Laptop Review: 13 Inches Of Gorgeous

There's a first time for everything, as the saying goes, and the Alienware 13 OLED is a first for us without question. Though there were a couple of OLED (Organic LED) display driven laptops at CES 2016 this year, Dell's Alienware division is the first in the door here at HotHardware with a retail ready product. OLED displays offer better...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Review: A 2-In-1 For Pros

The market for dedicated tablets based on mobile operating systems such as Android and iOS is in decline, but the same can't be said for 2-in-1 detachable Windows PCs. These hybrid tablet/laptop systems offer an additional level of utility that standalone tablets don't provide, and best of all, they don't force consumers on a budget to choose...

Hands-On The Phab2 AR Smartphone, Moto Z And Moto Z Force At Lenovo Tech World

On Thursday, Lenovo summoned the tech press to San Francisco where it took the wraps off two new mobile phone platforms that could both be game changers. It unveiled the world’s first Project Tango-enabled phone in the Phab2 Pro, and introduced an all-new type of modular smart phone with the Moto Z. The Moto Z has the ability to be upgraded...

Dell Latitude 13 7370 Review: A Sleek Business-Class Ultrabook

CES is a distant memory now, but we’re still seeing new products arrive that were announced in Las Vegas at the beginning of the year. One of those is the Dell Latitude 13 7000 series, the latest in the company's line of business laptops. The 13-inch ultrabook landed several awards at CES for its sleek design and promised to add some spice...
