The Fossil Sport Might Be a Wear OS Watch That Doesn’t Suck

I have a lot of Apple-hating friends who are always asking me: “What’s the best Wear OS smartwatch?” And I always say the same thing: They’re all bad. That said, the Fossil Sport could be the first contender for the title. Read More >>

The Nokia 7.1 Is a £300 Budget Phone You Might Actually Want

No, this isn’t the wild bug-eyed Nokia phone with five rear cameras we’ve been hoping to see, but it’s something arguably just as important. That’s because the new Nokia 7.1 is simply a well-built phone with solid specs for a very reasonable price. Read More >>

HP Thinks It Cracked the 2-in-1 Code

At first glance, the HP Spectre Folio looks like any old tablet in a leather case. It’s not outstanding or even very interesting looking. But it’s a very clever device, hiding in an elegant package. When you see it in person, your excitement slowly builds as its design reveals itself to you. Read More >>

Lenovo Wades into the Smarthome Gold Rush with Some Very Cheap and Convenient Gadgets

Along with anything related to smart speakers and voice assistant integration, one of the biggest gold rushes in tech is the rapidly expanding smarthome market.

Samsung’s Latest Tablet is Trying to Out Pro the iPad

Tablets are in a tough spot nowadays. Do you go cheap and just push out something that’s essentially a big phone, or do you up the price and go for extra functionality like stylus and keyboard support? Over the past few years, Samsung has tried to make the most of Android by making tablets that were closer to convertible laptops than standard slates. And for 2018, Samsung is going even bigger with the upcoming Galaxy Tab S4. Read More >>

Parrot’s New Foldable Drone Can Nail Some Crazy Shooting Angles

Yesterday, drone manufacturer Parrot announced the newest addition to its quadcopter family. The new model, the £630 Anafi, is seemingly Parrot’s answer to the folding DJI Mavic Air. It’s small, shoots 4K HDR video, and and can do a few cool tricks with its gimbal-mounted camera. But when it comes to additional features, it doesn’t really do much to threaten the entrenched competition. Read More >>

LG Is Stealing Its Own Thunder with the V35

The LG G7 isn’t even available yet (it officially goes on sale 31st May), but that hasn’t stopped LG from pushing out another big, expensive phone in the V35. Read More >>

LG G7 ThinQ Hands On: An Unremarkable Android Phone Joining a Sea of Unremarkable Android Phones

In 2018 it's hard to make your brand new smartphone stand out from the crowd. They all have basically the same features: big screens, a variety of biometric security solutions, fancy dual-lens cameras, AI of some sort, and more. The truth is, unless you have the words "iPhone" or "Samsung Galaxy" in your name, nobody really cares unless your device is dirt cheap or does something new and exciting. From what I've seen the LG G7 completely fails to draw attention to itself.

Comparing the Original 2004 GoPro to the Newest One Is Ridiculous, But We Did It Anyway

It’s been a wild ride for GoPro. It went from a niche camera company for surfers, to a media behemoth that was printing money, and now to a company undergoing large-scale layoffs, and publicly considering selling itself. Oof. Rather than piling on, we decided to flash back to happier times. So, I went on Amazon and bought the very first GoPro Hero camera for roughly £20, to see where it all began. Read More >>

Fitbit Did What You Wanted and Basically Made a Pebble

I haven’t asked for a lot from Fitbit over the years. Really only one thing. I would like another Pebble—a gorgeous smartwatch that lasts for days, has a healthy selection of apps, and isn’t sized to fit the wrist of a seven foot tall, 300-pound football player. Finally, I think, Fitbit might be giving me what I wanted. Read More >>

MWC 2018: Alexa and Cortana Will Duke It Out in the Update to the Best Laptop Under £1,200

Alexa already dominates a tonne of living rooms and kitchens thanks to Amazon’s huge line of Echo smart speakers. But there’s still one major category of devices Alexa has yet to conquer: PCs. However, at CES 2018, Amazon announced that Alexa would be making its way onto computers too. That brings us to now, at MWC 2018, where Lenovo is showing off its line of new Yoga 730 2-in-1s, which are going to be one of the first systems sporting Alexa’s new PC integration. Read More >>

MWC 2018: Sony’s New Buds Have Holes in Them for Your Own Good

How many times have you seen this: a guy or gal walking down the street with one earbud in, while the other hangs loose around their shoulders and neck like some ridiculous techie bolo tie. If you’re like me, it’s a daily occurrence, and a sad symptom caused by design that doesn’t quite work. Read More >>

MWC 2018: Huawei’s Matebook X Pro is a Slick Challenger to the Very Best Windows Laptops

In the laptop world, Dell’s XPS 13 gets a lot of credit for having a great design, excellent battery life and that nifty Infinity Edge display that started the trend of slimmer bezels on laptops. But what most people don’t know is that the laptop with the thinnest bezels in the world isn’t a Dell, it’s now a Huawei. Read More >>

Canon’s Next Flash Is Trying to Be Idiot-Proof

Using a flash is what separates photographers from people who got a good camera deal on Black Friday. Flash photography can be hard. There’s light theory and mathematics at play. Use a flash incorrectly and the images you’re making are often uglier than if you’d never used a flash at all. Canon’s hoping its new 470EX-AI flash unit changes that. Read More >>
