    True story: last summer, I replaced a fully-loaded 2015 model car with one from 2013. I was so used to having a full infotainment system that when I pulled out of the dealer’s lot, I instinctively stared at the screen…all to be reminded that this car doesn’t have a backup camera! If, like me and […]

    HTC U11 Review: Our New Squeeze

    Things have been rough for HTC on the smartphone front. Four years ago, we all lusted after the excellent HTC One (aka.

By the time the […]

    Microsoft has been killing it lately, but many of their great recent hardware announcements have been geared towards the prosumer.

    Huawei Watch 2 Review

    Early last year I checked out the Huawei Watch. It was Huawei’s debut smartwatch, and the Chinese company went for style, using metal builds with colors like gold to try to create a smartwatch that would actually look good with a nice outfit. I wasn’t totally convinced. Part of that was because of Android Wear, […]

    V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless Review

    In November of last year, we heard about three new headphones coming from V-Moda, including the V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless. The Milan-based premium audio firm excels in sound, but exercise buds usually sacrifice audio quality to be lightweight, using tiny and often tinny drivers. Given that they’ve got a reputation to keep up, we figured […]

    Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ Review: Masterful

    For several years now, Samsung’s been dominating the world of smartphones. Multi-billion dollar marketing campaigns have made the company wildly successful with the general public, but us tech journalists haven’t always been impressed with Samsung’s handsets.

    Haze Dual V3 Vaporizer Review

    In order to stay relevant, vape manufacturers must be continually innovating to separate themselves from the competition.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review

    With tablet sales plateauing and lots of decent low-cost options to choose from, premium tablets have become tough sells. Increasingly, we’ve seen tablets billed as creative tools, combined with styluses and keyboards to become good sketchpads in addition to being solid home entertainment devices.
