2016 Audi S7 Review

2016 Audi S7 Review

The "four-door luxury coupe" might have seemed like an odd fad initially, but its matured into a legitimate segment. Audi's take on the category, the 2016 S7, has an excellent starting point in the shape of the slinky A7, ramping up the curb appeal with bigger wheels and more aggressive strolling front and rear. Nothing too outré, mind, but enough to single the car out as something special.

Razer Leviathan Mini Review

Razer Leviathan Mini Review

Inside the Razer Leviathan Mini you're going to get some deep, booming sound. That's for certain. If you connect this speaker to your Android device, you'll be able to say "OK Google" to it just fine - it uses what Razer calls "Clear Voice Capture" technology - you can use it as a speakerphone for your phone, too. But what is the Razer Leviathan Mini best at? Audio for your TV? Not so much. Wireless music. Wireless music in twos.

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

Moto 360 Sport Review Part I: Day 1, Comfort

The first thing that struck me about the Moto 360 Sport is how together it felt. While the first Moto 360 seemed the epitome of style at the time back when it was launched in late 2014, it was also rolling with a replaceable watch strap system that was ever-so-slightly more difficult to work with than its competition. Here in 2015 you have the choice of a replaceable strap with the Moto 360 (2015 edition) with a more traditional set of watch strap arms or using the Sport, a watch with one strap that's attached directly to the bulk of the watch.

EcoReco M3 Electric Scooter Review

What with Uber, Zipcar, Lyft, and more, does your average Millennial really need a car? EcoReco would probably agree, its M3 electric scooter promising both "last-mile" convenience and a good dose of fun. I'm not quite a Millennial, but I was curious whether a car-less lifestyle was something achievable without riding a kid's toy.

Apple TV Review (2015): Living with big-screen Siri

Apple TV Review (2015): Living with big-screen Siri

Shouting back at the TV used to be frowned upon; now, with the fourth-generation Apple TV, Apple is positively encouraging it. The Cupertino firm's take on the future of the living room has released Siri from its iPhone and iPad prison, while a new remote, access to the App Store, and beefier specifications promise a slicker and more flexible experience. I've been living with the revamped set-top box for the past six weeks, to see just how much of an upgrade this is.

Apple Smart Battery Case for iPhone 6s Review

Apple Smart Battery Case for iPhone 6s Review

Apple doesn't make many iPhone accessories, so the controversy when the Smart Battery Case for iPhone 6s arrived was all the more pronounced. Not because anybody doubted the iPhone 6s occasionally needed an extra hit of battery, but because the silicone sleeve made it very obvious where it was hiding its Li-Ion pack. It's a case with a hump, and that's been too big an obstacle for some to get over.

Razer Wildcat Xbox One Controller Review

Razer Wildcat Xbox One Controller Review

Before now we've been using one extremely standard Xbox One wireless controller and one highest-end controller from Microsoft. Now that the Razer Wildcat has launched, it's time we found an entirely new gaming grounds to roll around in. Here we've got a device that costs the same as an Xbox One Elite Controller, but isn't as heavy. Here we've got a device that's lighter than the original Xbox One wireless controller, but whose industrial design has far more finesse.

2015 Ford Mustang GT Premium 5.0L V8 Review

2015 Ford Mustang GT Premium 5.0L V8 Review

You could make a solid argument that the GT is the "true" Mustang. No compromise V6, and no fancy-pants EcoBoost turbo; the GT packs Ford's naturally aspirated 5.0 liter V8, with the performance and soundtrack to match.

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S first-drive

2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S first-drive

On road or on track, the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S is ready to thrill the thrill seekers. It’s a beast - 503 horsepower does the trick there - but one that's also refined; more than track-capable yet finessed in so many ways that it could well be the perfect road-going sports coupe.

2015 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack Review

2015 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack Review

"What's with the bee?" An angry insect might not be the most obvious mascot for a 485 horsepower muscle sedan, but the 2015 Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack certainly has enough sting to keep the hive happy. And, though it's not the Hellcat that tops the Charger line-up, kicking off at under $40k makes this particular Dodge a very interesting one indeed.
